    When I started my research about pornography and it's effects, beside the main academic speech be tended to condemn it, the number of bias, different results, opinions and speech currents left me lost somehow. After some reflection, however, I realised that one of the common results among so many studies' outcomes was the fact that pornography was closely linked with lack of relation between sexual practice and bonds or feelings and, why not, love. Unfortunately, it looks for me like a tendency in our society, which love in it's different forms is not being a priority. It could be an interesting research, but how to quantize love? This learning of mine maybe can not be academically proven, but the way our contemporary society is dealing with sex for me is a proof that happiness in adulthood can not be achieved without a deep relationship of trust and love. Those elements are not only necessary during the early stages of life as Freud again elucidates. They are essential all the life along like Erikson somehow exposed on his theory about stages of life.

    An underrated public health issue
    Hello Michael, I totally agree with you. Beside the cultural differences be an important issue in health worldwide, it is even more important in Australia and I rope we could hear more about it in different medias in the future. Being culturally safe create much better health not only for the patients but also to the health practitioners and would make the working environment much easier going I think. Great work : )

    Nice point
    Hello Glenn, that is a really interesting issue to talk or read about and that is great you brought it to light here.
    The way that mental health is handled, fitting into the modern medicine patterns, lacks sometimes in simplicity and it is important to look a little bit back to what people like Hippocrates said.
    Just a real friendly talk can definitely be the best prevention method for this kind of disease. It is a shame, tough, it can not be afforded for a lot of people and no public health budget can buy it.
    Your comparison between different cultures is very interesting and proportioned me a curious reflection: is the high rates of suicide in Japan a proper mental health indicator? For our society suicide is clearly a mental issue but would it be the same considering the Japanese cultural differences, such as the importance of values like honor and pride?
    I do not know the answer but your article made me think about it. Thanks for that : )

    Cultural Artefact
    The song, “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke, is a song of great controversy, and some argue is a key indicator of porn culture seeping into the mainstream. The song was number 1 in more than 10 countries, but found itself banned in many institutions, especially universities. The title and the lyrics allude to the confusion when a girl says no to sex, but apparently wants it anyway, the lyrics, “I know you want it, but you’re a good girl” directly imply that the girl’s right to say no is confusing to Robin Thicke based on the fact that she’s dancing. This song has faced criticism based on its lyrics, and the music video which features scantily dressed women parading around the full dressed and in power males, the dirty version has the women completely naked at times, and has messages printed on the background featuring vulgar text, such as a message about the size of Mr. Thicke’s penis, which has fuelled even further criticisms.
