Sounds like a XXX movie title doesn't it?

No, Rick Santorum promises if elected to crack down on porn.

He's pandering to his (sucker) constituents. It's a game.

"Santorum said that a strict reading of pornography laws would bar hard-core porn from the Internet."

I really think Republicans want Obama to win again. If it was otherwise, how is this guy even still in the race?

Santorum is still upset that his name is associated with gay sex. I'm sure his "porn war" won't make the association between him and gay sex stronger once the Google search optimizer starts associating the words "Santorum" and "porn".

A few titles:

"My Dingaling"
"I'm a Wanker"
"Blister in the Sun" (I LOVE the Violent Femmes!)
"I Touch Myself"

This article helps to prove that there's something out there on the interwebs for everyone. Even Mr. Santorum.

"Rick Santorum promises if elected to crack down on porn."

So basically your telling me he's going to re-write the constitution? Also most men have a collection of porn on there computers, they might say they are against porn in public when there Wife is around, but once in the polling booth, they would vote against Rick Santorum.

Don't Touch my WATER! Oh wait we Can say Porn now.

Maybe they can pass a law that limits porn in the polling booth.

I got a robocall from Santorum and pressed the button telling them that I am voting for Romney (even though I am likely to vote for Ron Paul), mostly just to send Santorum a message.

Red states the largest consumers of internet porn. It would seem to me that he may actually be turning off his constituents. However, perhaps he is correct in the porn brain-damage connection.

With Utah being the biggest consumer of internet porn I doubt Romney would dare mention a porn ban.

Interesting leo. From your linked article:

Residents of 27 states that passed laws banning gay marriages boasted 11% more porn subscribers than states that don't explicitly restrict gay marriage.

Santorum says Porn is way more available under Obama than Bush. And that his justice department isn't on it the way Bush's was. I don't see it. Porn has always been easily availabe, and legally as far as I know, on the internet. Wtf is he talking about ?

I didn't believe this, so I did a Google search, and omg, Utah actually is the biggest consumer of porn. Utah. Yeah, Utah.

I guess there's nothing else to do in Utah. That's my only explanation. I certainly wouldn't have guessed Utah.

Given how our politicians only work for the lobbyists, masturbation is probably the most productive thing a person could do in a voting booth.

I can see the in-booth advertisements now, starting with:

"K-Y not vote for Romney?"

Makes me wonder what the distribution of gay porn would look like. My guess is that the same state with high porn "consumption" also have a higher rate of gay porn "consumption".

Yeah, that is just silly. He probably has some sort of "justification" like more houses have high-speed internet, therefor porn is more easily accessible. But then again he probably is just talking out of his ass.

Oh, there is plenty to do in Utah. Search the Utah craigslist personals for "garments" (aka - magic underpants).

I think that in a community that is sexually repressive any "adventurousness" has to be explored anonymously and privately as possible. The internet is a great way to get that privacy. While here in California you can be just another run of the mill freak in the freak kingdom; where it is more or less socially acceptable to attend the Folsom Street Fair.

I think there's something to be said for that. I say that even as a guy who grew up in the Midwest. Since people do kinky stuff one way or the other, maybe it's less awkward if it's "out in the open" rather than the "Elephant in the Room" no one talks about.

True, the most sexually repressed societies are the most perverted.

True believers (mormons) take them seriously, for what they stand for. I make fun of mormonism, but there's something kinda cool about having that level of belief.

At my 20th hs reunion one of the women from my class was discussing why she broke up with her last bf; she saw some offensive images on his computer. I asked what they were and she could barely whisper, "breasts." Seriously. I asked if there was anything else and she said no - but she "turned him in to the bishop" for looking at porn. That's not porn to me, but maybe I'm wierd or something.

Anyway, the guy got placed on double secret probation or something.
