I believe that this website is missing one of the biggest harms/effects on men. New research is showing that over-use of internet pornography can lead to erectile dysfunction. So you can add to the list of the detrimental effects of pornography. It can be very damaging to men in a medical sense. For more information, and most likely a large number of supporters check out www.yourbrainonporn.com.

I know of a very helpful program called MindArmor that helps with the struggle of pornography. One of the biggest problems with pornography is that we still have the pictures floating around in our heads. This helps with destroying the pictures we are stuck with. www.mind-armor.com

I believe BDSM torture pornography is a sign of how decandent patriarchal society is: "I want it, I deserve it, do it now." With the equal rights movement, women are becoming more defiant of male control and it has these backwards-talking penises seething. Demanding the torture of women through porn is an outlet for their 'justifiable' rage.

Porn use is habitual -- the more men watch, the more desensitized they become, creating the demand for even harder material. Even if they are initially shocked by what they're seeing, they quickly console themselves with the idea that the women are consenting: "You can't help what turns you on! At least they get paid! It's just fantasy, it's not like I'M beating a REAL woman!" The fact that these women are suffering doesn't even enter their minds, as long as they get off. (That's the most important part!) Some don't even need the consent. That inflated sense of entitlement, of control and possession, is all they need.

There are some truly sickened individuals who genuinely enjoy cruelty and inflicting pain on others, whether it be insect, animal or human (woman). And of course because these vile men enjoy it, it seeps into the mainstream, gleefully whitewashed and portrayed as some harmless 'kinky f*ckery' that us bland "vanillas" just don't understand. They also conveniently ignore the evidence that lack of empathy, poor social interaction, and enjoyment of watching or inflicting pain are characteristics of abusers and serial killers, of whom the overwhelming majority are male. Nope. My prudish little vanilla mind obviously just can't understand it...

Hi everyone! Wow, today is my first time on this website. Thank you everyone for your honestly and speaking out. I have been awake for days now and physically and mentally ill because just recently my husband has disclosed to me explicitly about his addiction to pornography.I have been married for a couple years with two children, doing fine, so I thought. Just recently (after my husband repeatedly lying about his true addiction to pornography in the past), decided to stop lying to himself and tell the truth. Thank God!
After he revealed all the details about what his addiction looked like, I immediately went numb. I thought what I was hearing was not true. I thought that it was my task to be gracious and forgiving, so I listened. But the more he told me of his illness, I felt more sick. I was dizzy and there was this massive pain in my chest. I then realized as I saw my life flash before me, all the ways this newfound truth has truly effected us!
My first instinct was to be appalled at the level of desensitization he achieved. I was sicked at how his fetish left me feeling about myself. I was sickened that i've had to second guess my worth as a woman or even my beauty- and I know I've never had a problem ever getting a man! I was sickened that he USED thousands of suffering women to fulfill his disgusting fantasies.
To my surprise, My husband did not even comprehend my feelings of disdain as he sat over me without even apologizing for it, and not even having a clue of how to put the pieces of my broken heart back together. He has had serious issues connecting with me as a woman and I always wondered why. For years I believed it was because I was the "first real girlfriend" he ever had and that is why he struggled to maintain a relationship with me...but turns out his serious addiction and inner decay due to pornography is the true reason why he unable to fully connect with me as a woman. On so many occassions I felt cheated or left with the short end of the stick (sexually speaking) and now I know why.
I always thought women in porn loved what they did and rarely had any problems, thank you Jenna for expounding the truth.
Knowing this now, I see no matter what end of the spectrum in pornography ( user, pornstar, or spouse) how there is a Great need for us all to be loved and accepted as we are and pornography accomplishes this for NO ONE.
I am on my road to recovery now. I'm sure there's more pain to come, but I hope I can face it and stand. I want to see my husband as the man I used to see him as. I want to finally get to know him for who he really is once all his skeletons are out of his closet. I want our love to be what it was supposed to be meant for-true contentment and satisfaction with our one-ness.
This is my testimony of the negative impact pornography has had in my life. I hope my kids do not one day have to fall into this demonic mind-warping, soul-eating industry. I am going to do all in my power to assure they know the truth. As for my husband, a part of him will always be defective ( I realize i may be sounding like I'm coming off as a saint, i'm faaar from that, nobody is perfect) but in regards to pornography something was stripped from him that is gone forever- the initial chance to view a woman as a TRUE human and his once innocent mind, now full of self-inflicted memories that will haunt him for life. I now have to face the burden of doubts, mistrust, betrayal, and degredation. His ability to carry out relationships with others (especially women) as a TRUE man has been tainted.
There is hope. Thx everyone for unveiling this horrible industry for what it really is!

Hello my frnds and dear one
i am here to add comment regarding the pornography........., many of you already know about the effect of the pornography on......
we all are created to live in a society which is comprised of good and educated people, who share their thoughts and concern for the betterment of human beings and here we are doing all those activities which adds diseases, social and political problems for us,,,, perhaps people people have tendency of making fast but fast money is mother of all evil. Also in pornography what we do is ; we degrade, put under our feet who feeds the human race i.e mother, a woman is beaten to tears, exploited, abused by men to tears and then show masculinity.............

If we ask our Conscious, I think we all feel pornography must be banned. But Governments think differently, It is like drugs, it also destroys life, family, affects society and increase crime. We all must think over it.
Disgusted on September 14, 2012 at 8:28 AM said:

My boyfriend moved in with me almost nine years ago. Within weeks I discovered his "habit". He thinks nothing of spending money on Comcast to the tune of over $150 a month. All for what? I hate the fact that he forced his disgusting behavior into MY life. He says I invade his privacy when I find out what he's been up to. Since he's gotten his computer, now it's gotten worse--it's the teenage girls he's so obsessed with. How can any woman feel secure about herself when you're made to feel old and ugly. This isn't fair to me and it has ruined our relationship--but apparently it's worth it to him. I can't stand it anymore.
porn hater on August 14, 2012 at 3:26 AM said:

I hate porn because it makes me feel bad, because it has ruined my marriage, it is something men use to demean women; there is no doubt about that.
Prior to being married I knew porn existed, of course but I had no idea of the extent of the problem. Of course, the internet and free websites only make things worse.
Those free sites, so called dating sites, chatting (do people ever chat about something innocent or interesting?) are like the drug dealers I was warned about when I was a teenager. First they give you a free taste to get you hooked and then..
Using internet cafes can be a scary experience if you are the only woman there, porn pop ups suddenly appear on your screen and you have to call the manager to get rid of them.
Travelling abroad can also become daunting because in many countries men got the idea via porn websites that all white women are sluts who will do anything with anyone. They actually expect you to want to get groped and worse.
My husband's friends encouraged him to view porn, gave him links to various websites, even used our home computer to watch porn while we went out shopping. They put viruses on our computer. That alone is abuse of hospitality and seriously disrespectful.
I know for a fact that watching porn will encourage viewers to commit adultery, visit prostitutes.
Most sites encourage incest, underage sex, violent sex etc. Even animal sex sometimes.
I do believe in censorship; it is a fine idea to think that education is the answer but many people do not want to be educated.
Think about it, most people these days know that smoking carried incredibly high risks of cancer, heart attacks, strokes etc but it does not stop them.
Same thing with porn except that things to do with sex are very fashionable these days; everything revolves around sex 'thanks to' the media. I even saw a sandwich shop advertising 'sexy ciabbatas'.
I think that all those sites should be closed down or at least stripped (pun intended) of the most offensive content.
After all, porn sites are not erotic or sexy but violent and degrading.

Correction : That's meant to say... Within these scenes some of it will be real, and not simulated.
Ninita ninth on May 31, 2012 at 6:53 AM said:

Oh I know the website the user Lance is referring too, Facialabuse.com by the time I watched some of these scenes I was pretty much and am desensitised to a lot of the abuse, I mean it doesn't shock me anymore, much of it is simulated as in the girls are already aware of the way the scene will unfold, but like after watching some Max hardcore movies my view is this so called "Simulated" Abuse is still abuse. In Russia they produce simulated Rape porn, and Simulated incest porn, Brazil and Japan is usual the main countries for hard scat porn, and animal porn. I've watched scenes from all these types of movies, With these scenes however it will not be simulated it will be real, I mean it's real anyway, but I mean actually very real and not simulated. My journey through porn has been dark, the guilt was massive at some stages in my life. So just saying I feel for Lance and I understand how he feels. Peace. #Even though I am no better than a beast do I not deserve the right to live? --- Movie Oldboy.
Ninita ninth on May 31, 2012 at 6:06 AM said:

Just so people understand me reading my message. I looked and researched into porn objectively, I looked at both sides viewing documentaries like 9-5 days in porn amongst many others, looking for positives about the porn industry as well as negative aspects, for me what I have found is the more you really look at the industry and the more you really listen to the stars, even the big names like Belladonna.. well it just becomes harder and harder to find any real positives about pornography at all. Sure they earn money, so what... I think the overall impact on EVERY porn stars life is sided on the negative, and that's just looking at the possible positive aspects, when you start researching into the negative, well... all I'm looking at is emotional damage, and broken lives. That's why I've had to take a back seat from looking into it, because those aspects are just damaging and it affects me too cause it's just so negative. The biggest concern for me is that young girls, I mean bright young 18 year old American girls without any major emotional background problems get into porn because the industry is shown to be harmless, glamorous and financially lucrative, but from what I can see, and I did really try to look for positive aspects, but from what I can see they will find that pornography will have a negative impact on them as people, emotionally, physically, mentally, socially, and WILL reduce their own personally values. ie How they view themselves. So what do they get for giving away all of that, well they get some money..... The bottom line is there are no real positives in porn at all, and the more you look the worse it gets.
Ninita ninth (from YouTube and Google +) on May 30, 2012 at 10:46 PM said:

I was one of those people who started off with the vanilla porn and then gradually progressed towards the harder and even dark side of today's desensitised porn world. I've also researched into porn? for a few years now, out of interest and partly because I wanted to learn about the women in the business and what things are really like. In fact I've looked into it so much I've had enough of looking into it. 

It's been hard to reach a conclusion about the industry, but after 10 years of viewing and much research I can conclude that porn is nothing more than an animal instinct which is sold to us. I personally feel that the more we watch porn? or the more porn stars partake in the business, the further they go with it, the more like an animal we/they become.

I know we are animals, but as humans we have characteristics that define us differently -- compassion, empathy, love. These qualities amongst many others are what make us human, and I feel that the more we watch or they partake, the more these qualities are gradually stripped away, and leave us more animal-like than before. 

To what degree depends on how far we/they go and delve into the porn world. There is proof of this with how far I went with porn. I was so desensitised by journeying deeper and deeper into porn that I downloaded a series of videos of a girl with a horse. I had become? animal-like, and so was the girl in the video and so was the horse. That's what porn can do. That's what it did to me. How far will you go?
Stephanie from New York on May 23, 2012 at 8:28 PM said:

The sex industry has taken a huge toll on my life. I've always found that as girls and women, we are under an immense amount of pressure. I've had issues of self-harming throughout my life. Eating disorders, anxiety, depression, self-harming, you name it. I always felt the sex industry was wrong, but because it's all around us and so popular and almost "normal" in America, I was forced to heed.

"When a man looks upon another woman with lust in his eyes, he has already committed adultery in a woman's heart." I've always felt connected to this statement.

Why is it OK for men to constantly go to strip clubs and watch pornography? Why is it ok for a man to do this to us women? Why is it the "norm" for these things to take place during bachelor parties, etc?

Recently, I've discovered my live-in boyfriend of 3 years watches teen pornography. As a 25 year old woman, this broke my heart, and my self esteem. As if I didn't have enough innate insecurities and pressures from the media every day of my life, I now felt this pressure and pain from my boyfriend. In my heart, I felt what he was doing was wrong and ended up leaving him because of it.

Are there any men out there that actually respect and love women? These teen pornography videos exploit very young girls, some of which are not even really 18. A man should be attracted to a woman, not a young girl. This shows that he objectifies women, dehumanizing them. This is a sickness! I truly believe it is.
Tired of Men on May 23, 2012 at 8:04 PM said:

 In a nutshell men are cruel.  I'm 36 and never married.  I'm tired of how I'm treated as a female.  I don't watch porn or go to strip clubs but I still get affected by all the people who do.  I would say lonely and sad are emotions I've been dealing with since I was 12.  It seems to be getting worse and I'm concerned about young boys and girls growing up today.

Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality  

- by Gail Dines

 

Click picture above to order "PORNLAND" at Amazon.com now!
 
DESCRIPTION
 
Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality takes an unflinching look at today’s porn industry: the stories woven into the images, the impact on our culture, the effects on us as men and women, the business machine that creates and markets porn, and the growing legitimacy of porn in mainstream media. Above all, PORNLAND examines the way porn shapes and limits sexual imaginations and behaviors.
 
Although we are surrounded by pornographic images, many people are not aware of just how cruel and violent the industry is today. PORNLAND shows how today’s porn is strikingly different from yesterday’s Playboy and Penthouse magazines — how competition in the industry and consumer desensitization have pushed porn toward hard core extremes. And, with the advent of the internet and other digital technologies, users don’t have to wander far to access porn; todaythe average age of first viewing is about 11 for boys, and studies reveal that young men, who consume more porn than ever before, have difficulty forming healthy relationships.
 
PORNLAND also looks at how our porn culture affects the way women and girls think about their bodies, their sexuality and their relationships. PORNLAND: How Porn has Hijacked our Sexuality argues that rather than sexually liberating or empowering us, porn offers us a plasticized, formulaic, generic version of sex that is boring, lacking in creativity and disconnected from emotion and intimacy.

Shared Hope International specifically focuses on fighting the demand for commercial sexual exploitaiton, including addressing pornography as a very significant demand factor for sex trafficking. 

Please see their excellent report on this issue:

Pornography: Creating Demand for International Sex Trafficking

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"Pornography is a marketing device for sex trafficking: It normalizes degradation and violence as acceptable and even inevitable parts of sex, and uses the bodies of real women and children as objects. The difference between pornography and erotica is clear in the roots of the words themselves -- porne means females slaves, eros means love -- so pornography, like rape, is about violence and domination, not sex. Millions of lives depend on our ability to separate pornography from erotica, and to disentangle violence from sexuality."

Gloria Steinem, 2006

For information about Gloria Steinem's important work of fighting against the harms of pornography, sex trafficking and other forms of sexual exploitation and abuse, including videos and an audio interview, please see our page on Gloria Steinem. Click here.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED. PLEASE DONATE IF YOU ARE ABLE TO.

Please remember that it is not up to AntiPornography.org, the other organizations listed on this page, the government, or "someone else" to do the entire job of fighting against the devastating harms of pornography, prostitution, trafficking, and other forms of sexual exploitation or abuse. It is an enormous job and the responsibility lies with each and every one of us to do our part as part of the bigger team of those who are choosing to be part of the solution of creating a more just and humane world for everyone, rather than be part of the problem.

So thank you in advance for whatever you are able to contribute to the cause, whether in the form of a tax-deductible donation or your actions. What you do does matter, so for the sake of all those across the world who are being exploited and abused, and for the sake of the future of humanity, please do what you can to create a more compassionate and safer society for all.

Thank you for whatever you are able to give or do to help create a better world for everyone, especially for women, children and future generations.

 YOUR SUPPORTIVE ACTIONS & YOUR DONATIONS ARE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. 

THEY CAN AND WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
