In my defense, I was 7. Plus, I kinda just don't recommend that grainy footage of a 70s-era three-way (with all the accompanying body hair) be any child's first exposure to sex. It's an awful lot to try and process all at once.

Like I said, it took me a few minutes before fascination took over, and now I'm a better person for it.

Early on in life, I was dubbed by many to be, quote, "a character." It stuck.

I've been called worse.

Given the wrestling it certainly makes sense.

As far as porn goes I only had late night Cinemax and those kinda channels. They were nice but finally getting to actual porn was quite exciting

Kids these days are spoiled with the internet. The good old days was trying to check out some adult program through the scrambled reception on a channel your parents didn't subscribe to. One of the sad losses with the invention of digital cable. lol

Speaking from experience, or...?

Sometimes... I start to think you're not as innocent as you pretend...

When I was a kid there were two porn channels in my cable package: Playboy TV and SexyHot. You had to subscribe to them though, so during most of the day the images were blurry and kept moving... know what I mean? Ofc if you tried hard enough you could see the action clearly for like 5 seconds. Usually those two channels had a free trial version around 10-11pm where you could see the thing properly for free for about 30 minutes.

And to think people complain about Japanese porn censoring genitalia. That's peanuts compared to what I've described above.

What is violent game?
Most games are based on the violence (i.e. you play as character killing / defeating other characters) to one degree or the other, so if you stretch definition enough, it can cover about 99% of all games in existence.

But if this question limited to the stuff like Mortal Kombat than I think it's case by case scenario. Due to some **** in my life, virtual violence has never impressed me, but on someone else it might have a negative effect.

There are still needs for age limits, or at least recommendations. The real problem is when politicians try to ban or censor videogames aimed at adults.

Some hotels used to have that.
