But yeah pornography should be illegal, as it was in the GDR (and Yugoslavia, and Albania.) The people punished should be those who direct pornographic materials and distribute them.

As always, you are COMPLETELY CORRECT in case of SFRY.
This link provides an article in Slovenian language and if you don't believe me, run it through the google translator, but it clearly states that the first hardcore porn magazine in SFRY was published in 1968 with uncensored fellatio and other hardcore acts. There are even a few pictures of the covers to prove it.

I congratulate comrade Ishmaili for being correct this time as well.

I stand corrected then, we can add the exploitation of women's bodies as another achievement of Yugoslav "socialism" next to capitalist exploitation and a system of national oppression that later culminated in wars and genocides. Admittedly the policies of the revisionist regimes towards porn and prostitution isn't something I've studied, just like how it was only recently I learned that Poland opened its first strip club in 1956 as part of the "struggle against Stalinism" and later encouraged prostitution in order to appeal to Western tourists.

You never seize to amaze me. If there would be no porn available in SFRY, it would be also wrong according to you. It's like you're never happy with any aspect of SFRY no matter what it's about. And you're right about wars, they were the immediate consequence of too much pornography and women's bodies' exploitation! Kudos to you, comrade Ishmisheili.

Talking from experience and taking into consideration the health and benefit of your children, pornography should be illegal for the youth. It would cause unmitigated pregnancies and abortion. Believe me. I've been there. If not for a strict mom, I should had impregnated tens and tens of teenagers when I was young. The wives of my peers are now selling their bodies on the streets. Do it the Stalinist way. Lock your teens inside the house together with a chaperone.

Where did I say that I defended pornography? It would have been right if pornography were banned in Yugoslavia. But of course in a society dominated by the profit motive, that cannot be expected.

Yes, they used pornographic images to blackmail every 10th person in the country into staying in line. I understand you're a major fan of coercive government, but please don't use words like "silly" to describe responses your orthodoxy doesn't permit you to accept.

The East German revisionists literally had the most "positive" line on sexual issues in Eastern Europe, that wasn't a sarcastic statement. I wasn't referring to pornography, but to the GDR's attitude towards sex itself, as well as homosexuality. It had more in common with the West than with most Eastern European countries in regard to both.

And I don't uphold the GDR. As the Albanians pointed out, the East German revisionists with their "consumer socialism" allowed all sorts of degenerate trends to emerge in their culture. The only thing the GDR employed coercion against were Marxist-Leninists who opposed the revisionist clique and its Soviet social-imperialist backers.

How can you even live in capitalism right now if you reject everything it stands for? You must really suffer. Why don't you go to North Korea and practice your way to socialism?

Because Canada would be socialist in 31 years, Sir Edvard. Mark my words! Why practice socialism in North Korea when we can do them here.

I'm all for it provided there's an ample amount of various hardcore porn magazines available

The hilarious thing is that I'm a radical totalitarian Statist maniac from the American Conservative point of view, when what I REALLY am is a middle of the road, thoroughly boring and non-radical conservative from OUR point of view.

Meanwhile, in the eyes of the true believers like Hoxha and the Kims, I'm actually a decadent liberal anarchist sellout, which is also EXACTLY what the American Conservatives in the Republican Party accuse me of.

The greatest porn that can generate the greatest amount of semen is Sharon Stone's TORERO. Look for it in the web.

Pornography is not inherently bad. The business of porn is. We should never attack porn-stars but rather those profiting from porn just like any other capitalists. Pornography with consenting adult without the coercion of the capitalist mode of production is perfectly fine. Drawn porn includes no actual humans and is also fine. (even if most of it really fragged up).

I chose it should be strictly forbidden. Why? well for a few reasons;
1. Porn is against my religion (Christianity).
2. It's degrading, and it's unclean (stds, AIDS, hiv, etc.)
3. I never understood why it's illegal to be a hooker, but it's okay to be a porn star? I mean think about they're both the same thing! (having sex for money) yet one is legal and one is not. So if hooking is illegal then porn should be illegal too, besides porn along with most of today's media, and well certain members of society have caused the family unit to crash. Basically a world without God and morals won't last, we need to get back to the roots, follow and serve the one true God, and try our best to keep our lives free of filth.

I would love to see a world governed under God / Christianity but sadly that will never be due to the hardness of mans heart, and due to the atrocities committed by the Catholics who are not Christian at all, but sadly many believe they are so thus Christians and God are wrongfully blamed.
