Third is attitude. It isn't hard at all to find examples of incest or rape in hentai. These are massive ick factors for most people, even for the Japanese. Their recent attempts at legislation show that they are trying to cope with the perception that the industry is a bit... out of control. And it does seem like certain groups are trying to outdo each other in what they can get away with.

I can only go by the state of U.S. porn from about 20 years ago, as that was the last time I recall watching any, but at that time, incest wasn't something that it shied away from. In fact, there was one popular porn film series that was entirely built around that premise.

Rape, by contrast, was the real taboo in mainstream porn. (By "mainstream", I mean stuff you found in the adult video section/room of your local video rental shop).

I think the prevalence of rape in hentai has to do with the Japanese desire for "pure" girls. For them to remain pure (at least in mind), the act has to be forced on them, or they have to be mind controlled, or some other method of subverting their will.

hmm ,well ive always believed if something can make someone happy it should be allowed on certain terms, but this is quite a difficult subject to warrant such a view because it can be somewhat morally questionable to some.

however i don't think its exactly poison, as much as it is a way alienate outsiders.

its a hard topic for me, because i've always had such a strong love, and respect for animation as an art-form for its imagination, its wonder and at times its innocence.That said seeing it presented in such a way does generate feelings of displeasure, seeing it at times as almost a corruption on what makes animation, a very colorful and unique artform. However it is a very big part of the community, it brings in revenue for the industry, and there are people that do want such a product, so i suppose that I would be willing to compromise on my feelings for such work, if it means benefiting the industry

Hentai is better for society if you ask me. What is the difference between prostitution (which is widely illegal) and porn? Hentai is basically harmless unless you abuse it (yes, it can be done). Then again, too much of one thing will always prove fatal in the end. And we all like to feel naughty once in a while too

Everything in moderation.

When hentai becomes an all-consuming obsession for you, its bad.

why do people attack what they do not understand. Hentai and Ecchi are only a small but important part of the anime community, it poses te single largest revenue generator that the industry has and it makes it possible for other anime to be made. And yes I watch hentai and ecchi.

I have heard people say this before and was wondering what people actually think on this subject.

I personally don't watch it but hey if you like it that's your thing.


Is the existence of milk bad for the cheese community? Animation as a commodity and career (and in this century even as an academic discipline) -- only started because ancient merchants took to selling flip-cards featuring nude women.

Yes, I agree. We need to embrace our fantasies of tentacle rape and provide those introverted youth with something to satisfy their lack of female presence ~~

I don't think it's poison. I think that it helps the anime industry out in many ways. I personally do not watch it But, I have nothing against it. I don't really see it as a bad thing.
