If there is one thing I've always found compelling, it's how easy (since the internet era especially) it is to get access to sex. Seriously. It's like you can turn on your computer and there are ads screaming at you for online dating or hook-ups or there are pornographic movies there ready to be watched... And it sells. A LOT. In volumes.
There is nothing wrong with sex itself, of course. But, when it's overly accessible, then... Well it gets a little too seedy.
So, when I hear this weekend that Craigslist shut its 'adult section,' I couldn't help but feel it be a good thing...
Reported just about everywhere today (including CBSNews.com), the Cliffs Notes of it all is this: attorneys general demanded to have the site removed, since the site couldn't block potential ads promoting prostitution or child trafficking.
When I heard this, I couldn't help but chuckle. I mean, what else would you expect with such a public forum? In all honesty, I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner.
But ultimately, removing this section does, on some level, eliminate one portal of immediate access to sex. May not be such a bad thing, right?
