If sexual assault is such a problem in the Army, and military as a whole, why would you stop soldiers from being able to get out their urges as easily as possible when they already can't have sex for 9 months? I understand local laws, but we've invaded these countries... We're breaking plenty of local laws.

I have to admit that I am bothered and disappointed that you are equating sexual assault with a lack of ability to find sexual relief in situations such as deployments.

Perhaps you need to revisit SHARP training. Sexual assault is about folks who use sex in a manner that gives them a sense of power and control.

SGT Shane Serna - Yes they still use SHARP and it has improved slightly. There is a new training video that is the best one I've ever seen and I used it in my annual training. SHARP Spoken Word I believe it's called.

I really think the issue here is this guys a predator he knows he is a predator and has an unhealthy addiction to porn. Man turn off the computer and quit watching porn. Your urges can be controlled by being an adult and a professional.

You mean someone like you. Please go get help. What do you think pedophiles do they watch child porn until they get worked up then they go take a child. Rape and domination porn should be banned. I'm assuming you don't have a normal relationship. Please please get help before you harm someone. SPC (Join to see)

BLUF: Cultural laws and norms of the locations US service members are at..

Sometimes it is part of the status of forces agreements (if we have one) and sometimes it is a internal CofS, DA, or service chief decision due to Cultural laws and norms they want to adhere to as a give and take of what we need, vice what they want. More so when we work in a combined (US and other country forces) environment including the host nation..

That it is unpopular or denying an entertainment want of a service member is not part of the equation.
That you think watching porn will stop sexual attacks or harassment is very telling of your not understanding sexual assault.

I didn't brag I stated a fact.

I have done research on it outside the SHARP arena.

I can say someone is wrong when they are wrong.

Have a LOVELY day.

SGM Erik Marquez - Actually Mr. Marquez, I clearly agreed with her on that. One of the few times in this thread.

But thanks for chiming in with your confused attempt at chivalry.

SGM Erik Marquez - ""I guess that you prefer that he "shut up and do as he is told" and just follow orders blindly, and without questioning them - a policy that has historically led to war crimes."

Not only are you off base with that response, your not even in the park, city the park is in, or state."

Wow, you are truly ignorant of history, aren't you Mr. Marquez. I suggest you look up the Nuremberg trials.

All posts show why we should not go there. I believe many have been effectively trolled with this topic, unless the issue runs rampant with those deployed. Not porn, but sexual assault.

I think someone has not paid attention in any SHARP briefings ever. I can't believe you are stating that sexual assault happens because some people can't quell their sexual urges. So explain to me why sexual assault happens stateside where people can watch porn if that's all it takes to stop sexual assault...

You need to go have a serious talk with your SARC or a civilian victim advocate or talk to some sexual assault survivors. Sexual assault and rape are NOT about sex. Ever. It's about power and control.

SGT (Join to see) - Yes I can say it's never about sex because it never is about sex. Perhaps you need to research sexual assault and rape as well. A lot of experts on the subject disagree with you. Rape is always about power and control and never about sex.

Well I believe what your opinion is. But either way I don't care, I'm not an expert. I don't care what the reason behind rape, sexual assault. There is no place for it in my squad platoon or company. not in the military or in the world.
Other than that I feel regardless of what I say or voice. Unless I agree with you I'll be wrong. I'm not a subject matter expert on this topic.
Thank you for your insight.

SFC (Join to see), his point is that it is not absolute. There are cases that show and “experts” who acknowledge that it is at least possible to be a factor, even though we know it is nit the norm.
