Frequently Asked Question: "I'm a University of Louisville cheerleader. I'd really like to take some XXX Hardcore pictures of myself and post them on the Internet. Tell me, AceAdvisor, do you see any downside to this?"

Why no, not at all. Sounds like a plan to me.

Okay... blogging ethical dilemma. On one hand, it's NSFW hardcore porn.

On the other hand, it's news -- sort of -- and it's "what's going on the internet," and, well, if I know about it, why shouldn't you know about it? You're big kids, you know whether or not you want to click or not.

So there's a link up at a site I have nothing at all to do with. The first click is safe, it's the second click -- the click once you get there -- that has a very, very big content warning on it. Every post on that site, in fact, contains a link that's very NSFW. That's why it's called "Too Hot For Blogging," morons.

You can wait 'till you get home to click. Or at least wait 'till you get to a public library.

Girls gone wild.

Something has seriously gone wrong in this culture. God knows I'm not a super-strict virtuecrat or anything, but a steady diet of MTV sex shows, Sex & the City, and the like now has many, verging on most, young girls pretty much behaving like gutterwhores.

Some will say stories like this, and the Texas high school cheerleader scandal, don't indicate anything more than the fact that the media is now giving these stories play. I.e., this has always been going on, now our sensationalist, 24-hour-cycle media is just telling us about it.

That's nonsense. This has never happened before.

But Why Blame MTV and Sex & the City? What About the Internet? I don't think the ubiquity of porn has much of an impact, because in order to sell this behavior, you have to sell it as cool, chic, hip, an attractive "lifestyle choice."

Internet porn, and porn in general, hardly does that, does it? Hell, I'm sickened by it half the time, and I'm nasty.

Nah, you need to accompany it with fabulous digs like on The Real World or a fabulous job like Carrie Bradshaw has.

Not As Bad As It Seems? Okay, obviously, she took the pics, but she didn't necessarily post them. From a link I can't link, because it's littered with porn ads:

The first story is that Becca’s cellphone memory stick got stolen and whoever discovered the photos uploaded them to the Internet. The other story is that her ex-boyfriend took the photos and uploaded them to the Internet in an act of revenge.

Well, that is a bit different. It's still pretty damn risky to allow yourself to be photographed like this, and, well, I guess it's pretty damn sleazy, but hell, what people do in their own bedrooms and all that.

The fact that this might have been the vengeance of a jilted cad makes it look a little less bad for Becca, I guess.

Still: Ten years ago? Virtually impossible to get a young girl to do this.

Now it seems more or less expected.

Dominic Dunne wrote an article about this. His conclusion that sex acts that just weren't even on the menu thirty years ago are now more or less commonplace even among younger teenagers.

That, of course, is partly due to porn, but porn can't sell itself as cool.
