Technophile, Arachnophile, -step freak, game geek. Simultaneous instantaneous erroneous manliness expressiveness robust fuss over the cusp of foolishness. The dichotomy rots in me as the grain gains insane profane taints of colossal apostles tossin' the fossils known as 'tomes' into homes, plaguing minds like mine with unrefined time on lost kinds of reliance in defiance of modern science. Also, I like words.

Finally someone willing to discuss this without attacking each other. Thanks.
I do believe everyone has unique psychology and worldview, and also that we are raised in a certain homogenous cultural environment. In a setting where everyone is different, there needs to be a manner codex, moral codex or at least an ethics principle in us that enforce the two previous (as in Sokol's Small Philosophy of Man). When that is made, people won't do random stuff, kill each other, descend to anarchy.
We currently live in a world where rape is something horrible, and whoever doing creative stuff with it, say, writing, is to make sure they understand the gravitas of what they're writing about. If they are writing about something as physically and psychologically traumatizing as rape, then they need to know that they're not just writing about some non-consensual sex and go from there. Rape is a very serious subject, and it needs to be handled delicately. If a character in a story is raping someone, then the author must acknowledge that what that character is doing is taking control from their victim and doing their best to destroy them. If this is ever presented without taking it genuinely and deadly seriously, then we need to make sure whoever wrote about it is aware of what they've written.
Then again, when handled properly, taboo subjects can provide a massive amount of insight into a story, into the characters and into the events that are unfolding within said story.
Rape, misoginy, incest, sodomy, masochism, and violent death of innocents are all things that are a big taboo in today's culture and me, as a person trying his best to be moral and do well, thoroughly despise all of this. I am behaving by a genetic legacy, or simple enculturation (both as in Clifford Geertz). People who promote it and agree with it are shunned by me and many other people, as I do not believe they are stable, safe to me, and sometimes even dangerous.

Hentai, for me, is something that promotes such vile things (sorry for the term, I believe it just fits best). It does it in a very sloppy manner, and tends to emphasize the most horrible, because in hentai, anything is possible, which is another thing that horrifies me about the medium. Heck, at the moment I am writing an article on my blog that is titled "11 Reasons why I hate hentai". I must be a nutjob, but on the other side of the spectrum, I dunno.
I do believe people can be easily encultured to the world of hentai the more they are exposed to it. Sadly, that DOES affect the mindset of the majority and their standards, by adopting the perspective that is created by the exposition. I might still be interested in the philosophy of hentai, why does it display the things it does, because it is all words, but never in the medium itself. And if the medium is truly the message (as in McLuhan's Understanding media), I am very nervous when I search for my favourite manga or character, because of the things that might jump out at me and burn themselves into my retina. There is this one image I saw 1.5 years ago that frightens me to this day, and I can say I might have seen Procedure 110-Montauk (trope from scp-wiki) by complete accident.

I am seriously going on a essay here and gotta stop I do agree with you that it is about the amount of self-control a person has, and if he is susceptible to any of the "dark side stuff", then we can not blame hentai as a single item. On the other hand, like you mention, it DOES actually take a lot of work when being exposed to many controversial and dark things, to keep your own self control and not wallow in it; a right mindset, too. It is like in Star Wars, when fear leads to anger... and the dark side. To me personally, hentai takes a much more visceral approach; I do not feel a thing when I see a man blown apart, like in Cronenberg or Craven's films, although much of the body horror is still there, rationally. But many things that can actually make me vomit are in hentai, because it crosses a line of intimacy in the true sense of the word. Or, for example, in Saw. If one takes what he sees much more rationally and leftbrainedly, it does not have to provoke a repulsive response.
