Porn

Pornography is the number 1 contributor to sex trafficking.

“The World’s largest free porn site received over 33,500,000,000 site visits in 2018. That’s 33 trillion visits.  Do you think we have a problem?

Disney films, porn films, cartoons, video games, and blooper reels all have something in common: immediate access and viewership from any smartphone. Porn has become one of the most common and favorite ways to ‘escape’ for millions of consumers. 64% of young people, ages 13-24, actively seek out pornography weekly or more often. The ages of the users become younger and younger as technology becomes more accessible. Many don’t realize the dangers and long-lasting effects of pornography use because of the society that idolizes “enhancing your sex life”.

There are more porn videos on the internet than videos on Youtube, Hulu, and Netflix combined, and children and adults have access to it all day and night long. Up until 2019, when thankfully it was banned, access to free porn was available in most Starbucks.

Porn on a child's brain is more dangerous and addictive than cocaine or heroin.

If an average child in America is on their smartphone an average of 6.5 hrs a day, and some of that time was used pumping porn into their brain every day or even once a week, what kind of effect would that have on a child if pornography is more addictive than cocaine and heroin? What kind of effect would that have on a developing brain of a child? Analysis of the 50 most popular porn videos found that 88% contain physical violence and 49% contain verbal aggression mostly against women (Childhood 2.0 Documentary). Children watching porn creates the possibility of stumbling upon a video of an adult raping a child. Seeing something like this could cause new trauma in that child. Porn is 100% addictive, destructive, and it is a counterfeit currency for true love and connection. Let's not lie to ourselves about porn.

Fact: Porn is in direct connection to sex trafficking every time. Its dangerous effects are seen in the mind, body, and soul.

There is a systemic problem with porn in America and globally. There are more than 300,000 new sex ads uploaded on the internet every single day. The stats we have provided are real. Here are a few things about porn that are true as well: The United States is only 4.23% of the global population and it is the number one consumer of sex worldwide. It reaches deep into the soul with shame and guilt. It separates the heart and mind. Porn teaches men and women to objectify because it never says “no”. The user learns that “no” is not an option which is crucial in the increase of sexual abuse and assault. Porn is unnatural visualization of sex. Porn is unnatural in all its components. Porn is not real. It’s produced, fabricated, and false. Porn teaches men how to live duplicative lives. Porn teaches men that “this is how women like it”. Porn teaches men that women like to be abused, slapped, choked, and raped. Porn teaches men that women like sex hard and rough and all the time, and when a man wants it, they get it. Is it so far from reality that a 17 year old would feel it is okay to choke a girl during sex? It teaches women that men are only after sex and that their value only comes from sex, and submitting to the man. Porn is not empowering women, in fact, it’s exactly the opposite.
“To normalize porn is to normalize abuse, to normalize porn is to normalize rape, to normalize porn is to normalize sex crimes.” - Exodus Cry
Porn creates the demand for sex crimes and sex purchasing. Through porn addiction, there is a high risk that the viewer will get bored and need the 2D to turn into a real life scenario. That is how porn propagates trafficking. Not to mention that much of the porn that people are watching are trafficked victims. Although not all porn addicts become buyers, there is too much commonality in young people who start watching porn to grow up and need more.

A young boy sees porn at 10 years old and is triggered. He feels shame, guilt, and excitement. He then continues to watch for a while and then discovers masturbation, and that takes him down a darker tunnel. By the time he is 12 years old, he is very confused and has probably seen rape, gang banging, lesbians, animal sex, gay-sex, and darker videos. His heart, mind, and body start to crave something dark and sexually violent or aggressive. He meets his first girlfriend, and by the time he is 13 he has his first sexual experience. It may just be oral, but nevertheless, it happens and now his body, mind, and soul are fully engaged. He continues to watch porn and becomes obsessed with the pursuit of sex or something that will satisfy the hunger. By the time he is a graduate of High School, he has been involved in many sexual activities and has experienced many traumatic experiences. What he doesn’t know is that for him to get more and more aroused, it must get darker and darker. He has become numb to “basic sex” and searches for more.

College is where he is free to do anything he wants, and we know what college is nowadays. It’s the sexual revolution in college and people are discovering (lead to believe?) that true love and hope is just fiction. Our boy goes to his first Thai massage parlor and gets a happy ending. He’s now fully addicted. He graduates and never addresses the issue because the world doesn’t see it as an issue. However, deep in his heart, he knows something is wrong but he can‘t put his finger on it. It can’t be his sexual addiction right? The world says the more sex the better, the more sexual conquests the better, the more diverse sex the better, and the more you have sex globally the better. Sexual encounters are idolized and celebrated. Now let's jump down history to when he is about 44 years old, married, and with 2 kids. Never addressed his addiction. What are the chances he will go out to hunt for a young girl to buy, and what are the chances it’s a minor? You know, it’s said that many times the men who buy young girls for sex purchase girls who look like their daughter’s friends. So who needs to feed the hunger and demand? The Pimps do.

Let’s talk about how men become buyers. By what means, other than porn, would someone become a buyer? Factors like sexual abuse as a child, poor mental health, and lack of moral compass are just a few examples of what leads people to become buyers. But porn left to do its damage, is the leading cause and contributor of sex crimes. It addresses the demand and supply at the same time. Also, a known fact is that more than 50% of the porn online contains trafficked girls.

Something I say, which I believe is true philosophically is this: In order to objectify someone else, you must first objectify yourself. Porn teaches and trains you to objectify yourself. How do you think a porn film is made? Look at the cuts and the angles, it’s like any other film. “CUT! Do it again. Cut! Let’s do another angle. Cut! Do it again. Cut, we need more makeup... Cut! Another angle... OK, Cut, the girl is puking, and her body is tired... Cut the man is getting limp.. we need something to keep him up... Cut again! Do it again, and again and again..” Just like any other film.

Not only does porn train people to objectify themselves, but it does the opposite of empower. Feminists should be raging against porn because of the effect that it’s had on women. But the facts of porn are not being talked about and mainstream media and Hollywood are all about supporting it. An example of this is when WAP by Cardi B was released. Media was highly supportive of youth singing along and dancing to this song. Children are being taught that objectifying themselves on the internet is what’s going to create views. The world’s perception of pornography is not empowering, nor does it create anything positive. This objective society makes it hard to break the expansion of porn around our country, but by educating people and reminding them of their true worth, we can make a dent on the destruction of porn. 

To normalize Porn is to normalize abuse.

To normalize porn is to normalize rape.

To normalize porn is to normalize sex crimes.

Just so everyone knows, there is a movement across America to normalize and decriminalize pimping and prostitution.
