Pornography ain’t what it used to be. No longer on the top shelf or behind the bike shed, its available on every screen at the click of a mouse, with no apparent consequences. It’s easy to get and there’s an awful lot of it out there. Like kids let loose in a sweetshop, is it any wonder people are filling their faces with the stuff. With humour, honesty and a hard-drive full of research into the effects of pornography on the brain, theatre maker and entertainer Christopher Green asks: Is this just another exaggerated moral panic, or are there implications round the corner of which we are as yet unaware?
