Viewing Caselly Banks Live Porn?
Caselly Banks is a name that might bring to mind images of porn movies. He is the owner and operator of the website Xanga, which is a content management system (CMS). What makes his website so controversial is that he allows anyone to create a MySpace page using any language they prefer. This includes phrases like “big black dog”, “cummerbund” and “thick as a brick”. Banks has a fetish for big breasts, and he proudly states on his website that he had a “casein full breast massage done a while back”.
He also brags about being a certified “big breasted” man. So, what is so controversial about Caselly Banks? In an industry where self-pleasure is the norm, some see an inherent conflict of interest. Websites like Xanga invite and empower those with a fetish for live pornography to share their desires with other like-minded individuals. While it’s definitely a form of self-expression, does it cross the line into porn?
The first thing to ask yourself is if you really want to view live porn. Is it something that you see regularly, or are you someone who just comes to the website when it offers something you’ve been looking for? There’s a difference between wanting to view porn and being a regular camper. And as the internet grows and expands, there will be more options for adult web cams.
If your viewing habits include the use of adult entertainment websites, are you alright with people watching other people? Viewing people’s private lives is a slippery slope, even for the most experienced “website snorer”. What would society do then? Would we allow people to be able to view anything they wanted, including the racy things that happen behind closed doors?
In recent years, Bank has attracted some controversy for allowing offensive material on his website. An Internet search turns up the site’s homepage, and a FAQ page that doesn’t address explicit queries. The real question, then, is whether or not Bank actually believes what he says. He claims that all material on his site is legal, and has proof to support this.
This is not a new argument. People have been discussing the merits of live porn for years. Many argue that it’s legal because it is an extension of the pornography which can be found in books, films, and VHS cassettes, and is not technically illegal. This argument is more complicated than the one involving whether or not it’s acceptable to watch live porn on company websites, because while it is legal to view material on live webcams, companies are free to screen what viewers see (and sometimes post the results) on company websites.
