I've often thought technology can be used to prevent harm by giving people legal outlets for their desires, even if the act would be illegal with a real person.

It somewhat has been, but since it has also been used to cause harm, and generates the fear that it might be in ways yet unimagined some groups want to ban it's use as an outlet (or any outlet) and pretend bottling up is not harmful and anyone who transgresses is an evil pervert that should be shunned.

The permissive society does not permit.
