Ron Jeremy says games are a worse influence on kids than porn

During the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo going on in Vegas alongside of CES, Ron Jeremy stated that since the porn industry only caters to those 18 and older, videogames were a far worse influence.

“We don’t want kids to watch porn,” said Jeremy during a panel called The Great Porn Debate with anti-porn activist Craig Gross.

However, according to PC Mag, Jeremy said that if by some chance a kid does come across porn, it’s not as bad as other influences out there – namely games.

“[Studies have] found that violent video games are much bigger a negative influence on kids,” he told the crowd.

Sure thing, Ron. Games are much worse than seeing double penetration, urination films, or even two girls sharing a cup of “chocolate ice cream”.

No words.

    Yet, I’d say the porn industry does a better job of keep its material away from minors then the video game industry does. Worse, the video game industry custom tailers its games to apeal to a younger audiance intentionialy. Also, but no faul of its own, perants, media, and the public in general assume that they are just games and its no big deal. As apossed to the general thought process that says porn is bad, very bad.

    Worse? I don’t know. But I see what he was saying. I know alot of Brits make fun at Americans saying we are affraid of sex(in video games and in genral). You often say that it is common place to see heads getting blown off, bodies chunked along the ground(in games and on TV, NEWS, etc), but we freak out if someone is half naked. I agree, to a point. But isn’t Ron Jeremy saying the very same thing? He is talking about the CoDs of the world, not Mario, not Geomatry Wars.

    And in the end he is saying that the indusrty he is in doesn’t market its non apropiate material to minors. Just yesterday I saw a comic book(spiderman) that contained a MW2 advertisment on the back cover.

    @18

    I agree to an extent. It’s pretty clear that, posturing aside, developers known that many, many of those buying titles like Modern Warfare 2 aren’t supposed to, and it’s also clear that the industry isn’t exactly falling over to police itself.

    And I guess that’s the point he’s making. The flip side, just to be fair, is the porn industry itself can be far, far more damaging on those within it than the videogame industry.

    But clearly there is an issue with very weak policing of policies coupled with a matching weakness of general parents to take the idea of mature videogames seriously – i.e. forget it has videogame in the title, it can be inappropriate.

    The third major element I see is that videogame ratings are fundamentally rubbish. Look at Uncharted 2, a 16 here in UK, yet in context it offers the same – in fact I’d argue a less intense and less gory experience – than the PG certificate Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    If you ask me – and I know you didn’t, but hey that’s the freedom of the internet! – what we need is a combination of much more consistent and sensible ratings, coupled with education of parents and clear enforcement at retail including online retail plus marketing, of what the appropriately age band for a game is.

    I personally prefer the idea of age bands or more general guidance because in reality children’s maturity can vary a lot, and something a sensible parent can judge.

    Very good point, OlderGamer.
    Chapeau! :)

    Good to see someone who does not defend video-games no matter what the accusation is!
    Sure, Ron Jeremy understands nothing about the dangers of video-games, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any at all.

    violent videogames and porn are both very dangerous, anti social things. not to mention immature. what kind of loser plays Gears of War instead of doing something constructive and useful for society?

    comparable to heavy drugs like weed, some videogames are also capable of inflicting permanent brain damage, and paralyzing central nervous system.

    repent now!

    It’s not all about the industry… it’s about the parents.

    I can’t imagine any parent being ok with their kid watching Fuck Her Throat 17, but plenty of them are fine with the graphic violence in an 18 rated game. I’m not even talking about them not realising how bad it is, because a lot I know have sat there with their kids and seen it… they just don’t care.

    Sex = Bad
    Violence = Good

    Or

    Sex = Awkward / Embarrassing
    Violence = Commonplace

    Have you ever watched Bugs Bunny?

    I grew up on it. I know a lot of people that have. There would be Elmer Fudd pointing a shotgun at Daffy Duck and Bugs himself. Elmer would pull that triger and BAM! Daffy would be get shot. Or Bugs would turn the gun around and Elmer would get it. Funny stuff. Harmless really. I didn’t turn out to be a gun toting killer because I watched it as a kid. I don’t even own a gun.

    Fast forward to today and Bugs isn’t on TV like he used to be. Lest not on Networks Sat Morn TV. Too viloent. Kids shouldn’t be exposed to such carnage. Its a bad influance. They say. Parents are told this type of message all of the time. Its Barny, not Bugs. Bad bad bad.

    But you know, the same parents grew up watching the same stuff as I did. And like me, nothing bad happend to them. So they dismiss it. They brush off the notion that hat their kids want to watch is going to hurt them. Its silly really, in their minds. Like Bugs, its harmless.

    They apply that same reasoning to video games. Its just mindless entertainment to pass the time. That is the way many uninformed parents are going to look at it. I have talked with parents whom have sub ten year olds playing GTA. They laugh it off. To them I sound like the same people that told them Loony Tunes was a bad influence. To them it is the same message completly.

    You have to pick your battles. If you have childern, you know what i am talking about. You let the little things go in favor of your kid diong his/her homework. Their room is a mess? that is ok, as long as he/she showers daily and is clean. See what I mean? So your kid plays MW2? All of their friends on their friends list are also playing it. And you let it go, because after all your kid had a good report card and that it what really matters. I know I have rewarded my kids with games for a job well done. I look at like a paycheck. You do a great job, you get paid. Pretty basic.

    So this entire notion of it being all the parents fault is 100% crap. It isn’t enough. More needs to be done.

    Parents need to be educated. Stores need to be held accountable by law. And devs need to take responsibility for their product. And there needs to be a distinction between what is a truly M-rated game and what isn’t. No way, in my book Halo is on the same level as a Manhunt. And, I feel mrated games should have advertising restrictions, no way we should see Mrated games on Comic books. More needs to be done.

    However the counter point is simple:
    Bugs never hurt anyone.

    You’ve mentioned the comic books a couple of times there OG. You do realise that a significant proportion of the comic buying public these days aren’t actually kids right? Sure, there’s a pretty good chance that kids will see the adverts… but then you can say the exact same about TV and billboard advertising. Not to mention in store advertising.

    That said… I see no reason why 18 rated games should be allowed to be advertised before the watershed (if such a thing exists any more).

    Yes, I understand that Comics go beyond the typical kid demographic. However I also know that Spiderman is about as mainstream as a comic is going to get. It reaches a wide audiance. If Acti were even the slightest bit concerned over it reaching the unintended hands, they wouldn’t be adverting on said comic. I could see the advert going hand and hand with say a Witchhunt, Darkhorse or something. But Spiderman?

    Acti knows exactly what they have and they know exactly who plays it. I use it as ana example because I feel that it is a blatent example of what I was trying to point out.

    This is a very deep well, and I don’t see a bottom. Everyone wants to say that some games are 100% not for kids, but far fewer people are willing to do anything about it. They look the other way and make excuses.

    Personialy, I am not at the front of the line of war horses leading a crusade. I was just pointing out a couple things I felt often get over looked.

    I feel the advert thing is important. I feel that some M-rated games should be held in the same regaurd as X-rated movies and Cigerettes. They too are not for kids, and as such they can not advertise on comic books, or on TV, or on Billboards, or in Stores either. In the states, in most situations. Sure you can find Smokes behind the counter at the store. And in an Adult shop, yea they are going to advertise x-rated stuff.

    Marketing Campaigns spend their cash in places that they feel will reach the widest possible projected demographic for their product. I think they very fact that a M-rated game is on a product that is cominly read by minors speaks volumes.

  29. No_PUDding

    Heh, well now that’s a strange statement, isn’t it?

    Firstly, neither the forms of entertainment are suitable for kids. Simple. Just becuase one is worse, doesn’t mean you want kids to choose the marginally less-worse one.

    Secondly I’d argue whether one is worse at all. Comparing war to intercourse, is ridiculous. And kids should be exposed to neither of these vastly different interaction.

    They are both part of growing up, and can come when they need to.

    Personally, I don’t think it is the porn industry that does a good job at preventing minors from accessing it’s content. It’s more the governments and their legislation over the material.
    Governments are still completely deluded over how to handle game content, while the creators of said content know precisely who they want their audience to be.

    #33 5 years ago
  34. OlderGamer

    I agree Eregol. You are prolly correct. Less the “good intentions” of the Adult Industry, and more the enforcement of laws to protect minors. And your also right that the our respective global govs are lacking when it comes to ensuring the non-exposure of M-rated games to childern.

    That being said, I wouldn’t be happy with a Germany or an Australia conservitive style either.

    I am sure that a solution can be found, but I doubt it will found at either extreme end of the spectrum. You can’t ignore the problem, but you can’t ban M-rated games to solve it either.

    And PT, just this year, I handed my long time running Spiderman collection over to my oldest son. I started getting them regulary in the very early 70s. I have several that go older then that(not all of them Spiderman, mind you). I own, err he does, sealed in plastic the first run of Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spiderman. Mint. I have loved the Spiderman comics, and a few others for a very long time. So I am with you there!
