    Are you serious? I was reading my dad’s sexually explicit books and magazines when I was 12!. Included photography magazines since he was an avid photographer. I’m still a virgin at 59! It’s all in the mind and depends on one’s fate! Those who ban books are mentally unstable. Who are they trying to protect? From what? Realities of life?

      You ask good questions. I think that’s why the Banned Books Week event is so great! It’s a positive reaction to censorship, and a celebration of our right to read.
