In defense of Internet porn (updated)

In defense of Internet porn, article.
"Isn't porn supposed to lead to more sexual abuse of girls and women? Well, that was the theory, voiced constantly and vehemently for decades. But statistics show precisely the opposite.
During the 15-year period ending in 2008, the rate of forcible rape dropped a staggering 30 percent nationwide."

Seems this message may finally be reaching the mainstream media, cool. Not at all a "scientific" article, but at least the concept of porn not being destructive is becoming conceivable enough to utter to a broad forum, and that's important.

Update: It is said that the reason porn was legalized in the western world is that after it first became legal in Denmark in 1968, sex crimes fell markedly. I've only one reason to doubt this, and that is that it would surprise me if law makers in all those countries were that rational.
Here are some page scans related to the matter, from the book Porn 101.

It is said that the reason porn was legalized [is that] sex crimes fell markedly.

I would say it's more likely that it was legalized because the income of some rose markedly.

Big $$ rule.
