...really has no merit at all if it concludes with statements like

" now, though, there is an abundance of evidence to suggest the fantasy is real (women are wanton hussies)... That might mean that adolescents are now in a permanent state of overstimulation... or it could add up to the opposite. Neither option sounds healthy... and perhaps neither is the norm"

I mean - what are you on about!?! 'Might'. 'Could' 'Perhaps'

if you're going to write something about porn then can't you actually give some fact or figures!?

No, they couldn't because there aren't any. You can't come up with reliable facts and figures about human behaviour because there are way too many variables for any study to give definitive answers.

People who want to stop others looking at pornography (out of either ignorance, superstition or sexual disfunction) sometimes cite various studies about its alleged harms, but any one of these studies could be debunked by a bright 13-year-old in about 20 minutes, they are all rubbish. So any such article will be the usual space-filling subjectivity, nothing else.

Forget defining how pornography effect someone, first try to define pornography.
