good for morale? i doubt it

I subscribe to a military newsletter that I rarely read, but sometimes the headlines catch my attention and I'll check out the full article. This happened a couple days ago. The headline read, "Porn Ban Might be Bad for Morale," I seriously could not believe the words I read. My curiosity was definitely piqued, and I had to read the whole article (click on the link to read). Apparently they are re-evaluating what content is deemed sexually explicit, therefore more magazines are being considered inappropiate. It was depressing to read the quotes from soldiers, to realize that pornography is the norm not the exception when at war. While using porn may offer a temporary relief for some, it also has a very likely possibility of bringing difficulty to the marriage relationship upon their return home. So, is the porn ban bad for morale? I'll let you be the judge.


  1. I'm going to go way out on a limb here and say that war is the thing that isn't good for morale. All the rest just pales in comparison.

  2. good point, my friend! (there was a response to your comment left on the "fun at Burger King" entry by mistake)
