Spoiler alert: It's actually a 4 minute ad to get you to buy a greeting card for Mother's Day. But it's also selling an insidious myth that would be better suited for a birth control commercial.

Annie's Mailbox: Pornography not same as nude bodies - Sat, 19 Apr 2014 PST
Spokesman Review - Dear Annie: Please reconsider what constitutes pornography. In my opinion, simply looking at nude bodies in magazines or on the Internet is not pornography. If it were, then some of the greatest works of art should be banned. What I believe constitutes true pornography is viewing sexual acts or specific parts of the body in a sexual way. Also, you might consider the fact that many older men use milder forms of so-called porn (girlie magazines, for example) to "charge" their batteries, which can benefit their partners. If this helps them only at home, what is the crime? - Nude Bodies Are OK Read more...
