I can't believe anyone can see pornography and not see how it's dehumanizing and abusive and sexist. (And the people that can, and don't mind.......they disgust me). Just last week I got into the stage of porn addiction where I seek hardcore porn. (I used to just like softcore. JUST LIKE you said! You start getting interested in worse things :( ). And..........I'm............ 

I was shocked at some of the things I saw. My guilt at being addicted to porn increased even more. Even worse, it began plaguing my THOUGHTS............ Porn is doing more than just making me addicted to seeing misogynistic sexual acts, it's also ruining my mind, indoctrinating me to become misogynist....

In fact, I'm sure porn addiction is one of the main factors in my depression. :(

This feels weird. I mean, a porn addict........friends. (well, not exactly...you can only be friends with people in real life in most circumstances. I guess we're half friends or something) with a feminist, the leader of the anti-porn movement? I would expect you to hate me. but instead you feel sympathy for my addiction.....and offer help.....

I need my addiction cured now. :( I barely even get any enjoyment out of pornography (except for rare moments when my mind is completely corrupted), only shame and guilt. But I am still forced to view it, again, and again, no matter how bad I felt after the last time. I have no hope. I don't see how anything this bad could ever go away. 

Trying to fight the addiction seems in vain to me. Some feminists (radical) hate men because so many view pornography, and don't see any problem with it, and enjoy it (even though it's so bad). They don't know there is small amount like me, that didn't try to find it, were completely non-perverted, it just...came to them. By accident. 

I'm very sorry to women as a whole for this. Even though it isn't fully my fault (mostly PORN INDUSTRY's), I still feel very guilty. And women as a whole includes you. I'm sorry to you too. :( Your slogan, PORN HURTS PEOPLE, is true not just for the porn stars and prostitutes from the sex trade, but also addicts like me...

Hi AntiPornography.org,

I am a porn actress and I happened to discover your site while searching for the documentary "Hardcore," which you feature on your website.

I've been an adult film actress for seven years, and I have never had a bad experience. I've met some creeps and chosen not to work with them, and I've never been forced into doing a scene that I didn't want to do.

I honestly love my work and have met many great people throughout my career. Because of my uniformly positive experiences, I never believed the ideas of organizations like yours -- the idea that the porn industry could be damaging and abusive seemed entirely at odds with my own experiences.

That is, until I saw the documentary "Hardcore." The scenes where the subject does a shoot for "Max Hardcore" shocked and disgusted me. I have never experienced, nor known anyone who has experienced, such abuse and manipulation in the industry, but now I know that it does exist. I can't know how common abuse of that sort is, but based on my experiences and those of friends and acquaintances, I do suspect it is relatively rare.

But rare as it may be, it is still abuse and it is unacceptable. Having seen this side of the industry, I'd like you to know that I no longer view organizations like yours as prudish and reactionary quacks.

As you may know, Max Hardcore served a prison sentence for obscenity, due to the nature of his videos. I support free speech no matter how distasteful it may be, and before seeing this documentary, I would have been appalled that a man filming consenting adults would go to prison on such a vague charge as "obscenity." Now, regardless of the questionable legal basis for his conviction, I find myself so happy that such an awful man faced consequences for his manipulation and abuse.

I will continue to work in the porn industry, because as I said earlier, I love my work. But I want to thank you for hosting the documentary that opened my eyes to the fact that abuse CAN AND DOES happen in my industry. I also want you to know that I have emailed it to many industry friends, urging them to be vigilant for such producers and not to stand for such despicable behavior should they ever encounter it.

Not all pornographers are manipulative, cruel people. Not at all porn actresses are manipulated and forced into a sort of faux-consent (as was the woman in that documentary). But I now acknowledge that such people do exist, and that the industry needs to take an active stand against it.

Even if we may disagree on many things, I want you to know that I respect the work you do.

Thank you for your time,
Dani

I may be only 15 but the porn industry has a major effect on me. I have talked a LOT with my boyfriend about porn, and how it makes me feel, and he hasnt watched it since we started dating. But just the thought of him watching OTHER women having SEX with men disgusts me. It makes me feel insecure about myself. 

I am his first time experiencing sex and he told me after actually experiencing making love that porn is just disgusting, and it really grosses him out knowing that they are acting. 

I always seem to start a fight with him about what he used to watch and how it makes me feel. This hurts his feelings, but I CAN'T control it. Whenever the slightest thing that reminds me of porn comes up I automatically think of him watching porn, and I start to cry because I feel as though I don't match up to the "sexy" women that he has seen, or I'm not making the right noises or positions.

My feelings get really hurt by it and I don't know what to do. I have tried forgetting and forgiving. I have forgiven him, but the emotional effect porn has on my mind I can't forget. I have been battling an eating disorder because I feel as though i don't look "sexy" or "hot" enough. I have physically harmed myself because of how frustrated I have gotten knowing that MY boyfriend has just seen people having sex. 

I believe that the human body should be shared with the person you love, NOT the ENTIRE world.
Danielle from New Zealand on January 15, 2012 at 10:32 PM said:

I am writing this to tell you that pornography is not okay. That it is cheating, and that to support it is to support prostitution with a camera. If you are with someone who uses pornography, do not simply accept this usage as a fact of life; you deserve better than that.

I am with someone who does not use it, but pornography still bothers me. It bothers me because it is unethical; it is cowardly because there is no cause and effect. Men who would feel perverted and disgusting if they were to go to a brothel feel fine with their pornography habits, even though it is still contributing to the demand for prostitution; because pornography is prostitution, with a camera. It does not matter how much you pay for it, if you are contributing towards the demand, you are a supporter and you are part of the problem.

I do not believe in turning sex into a commodity, as the sex industry does, however, if there are people who will use it as a commodity, it is slightly better for those who are exploiting others to be doing it in a way in which they take responsibility for what their own actions are causing, such as if they were to go to brothels, strip clubs, or live sex shows, which would in many cases have better protection from abuse for their workers.

It is bothersome that pornography is clearly a form of cheating on one’s partner. These women in pornography are real women. It is a double standard to say it is cheating to masturbate over someone other than your partner on webcam, and then to say pornography is okay, when it’s masturbating to real people. Those who say that all men do it, and to “get over it” are ridiculous. If we simply accept behaviour that we do not enjoy, it reinforces it as a social norm and people will continue to believe it is okay to act that way.

If your partner is using porn and it is bothering you, do not accept it. Even if only a microscopic percentage of the male population doesn’t watch porn, it’s still millions of men. And surely there are also more of them who are smart enough to quit once they have a think about it, because they would understand why it was wrong. You won’t die a lonely spinster, and you won't have regrets if you do what you know is right. Be strong, and remember to stand to your convictions.

I love the actresses and the porn starlets that choose their direction in life- It's free will. I love porn and will continue loving it for that fact.

But I'm also glad that sites like this exist. I support strong voices against exploitation and abuse, especially domestic abuse.

Thanks.

Thanks for exposing the realities of this sick industry. A new thread was started at www.quatloos.com, the anti-fraud site on legal regulation of the porn industry. The more exposure you do of the other side of porn, the better. We need to hear from more people who have been hurt and abused by porn.
Daniel Ginn, England on November 28, 2011 at 1:30 AM said:

My addiction was never an addiction to me for many years. It was just what boys did. Although I spent a great deal of money on sex chat lines, my parents never recognized my behavior as a problem. They just thought I was being disrespectful for using their phone.

From around the age of 16, when the free porn sites started taking off, my access to all the different kinds of material widened, and without searching for anything in particular, I found myself starting to view the more extreme and bizarre sexual material. I was never sexually abused as a child, and I was never subject to violence, yet the nature of the porn I was using was becoming all the more aggressive.

Like any addiction, over time the user's emotions and physical reactions aren't impacted in the same way as when one used the same level of material previously. The body and mind begin to demand more in order to reach the same pinnacle of release and euphoria. Unfortunately with porn, real people's vulnerabilities are being exposed in order to keep the addicts hooked. Men and women are being paid to lose all sexual morals and dignity, and have become slaves to the people who need their fix of sexual stimulation. But of course the addict is equally as much the slave as the performer. We are pulled into a false sense of security, told what we want to desire, and are given a hit of our favorite drug at the simple click of a button.

The fact of the matter is the companies with all the money are the ones that are truly destroying lives. Not the insecure girl in front of the camera, (who could have had many troubles in her own personal life, i.e. drugs, abuse, neglect, etc.), or the “alpha” male guy alongside her, or the depressed lonely addict who has been so easily exposed to the material like you and me. It’s the greedy, power-hungry control freaks who want to poison the world throughout. And as long as we click and their businesses makes money, for them there is not an issue! And why would our governments bother to intervene? While the average person is an addict and buying taxable pornography, the governments' wallets are increasing too. We have all seen the statistics -- nearly 5 billion (at least) is earned world-wide. OK, those porn taxes may not turn into the biggest source of income for the governments, but it’s a nice wedge of cash all the same.

The fact of the matter is I’m really scared of my children becoming addicts, or sexually tormented by some of the things that are so legally accessible on the Internet. Our addiction is so taboo that many of us suffer alone -- due to shame. If we push our struggle to the mainstream, and do it in force, then we really do have a chance of saving the health and lifestyles of so many generations to come!

I’m not trying to be a cult hero, or push people into situations they would rather not be in, but let’s use our suffering and turn our extreme negativity into relief and extreme positivity, by making sure we protect ourselves and the lives of others. Let’s give the middle finger to the greedy, and take control of the controlling.

I refuse to be held back by these people any more. I WANT TO FIGHT FOR MY FREEDOM AND THE FREEDOM OF OTHERS!

Stay strong and please share with others. :)

I am so happy and surprised that this site and your YouTube channels are WESTERN, because as you guys know so many people in the Middle East don't know much about Western people. They think that all Western people love free sex, porno and alcohol. I know many Western friends, so I can say that they're so wrong. They think in a superficial way, exactly like those Western people who say that every Muslim is a terrorist.

God bless you and all who support what you're doing. I swear it made me so happy to view your YouTube channels, especially your AntiPornographyBlog channel.

Peace to you.

Hi. When I first chanced upon your YouTube videos I honestly thought your videos were too righteous for their own good... I mean I always thought porn was ok ... at least it keeps men from raping women and other men, etc.

But I was wrong. After doing extensive research and talking to a lot of people, I've realized porn is terribly wrong, and there's a lot of exploitation involved. I never ever thought that the actors would be doing it against their own will...

I apologize for my previous lack of support towards your cause. Good going and you've got my support. : )
Mike from Oregon on November 7, 2011 at 3:49 AM said:

Hey, my name is Mike and I want to share my story of my addiction to porn.

Well it all started when I was a child. I used to find porn in the weirdest places, like an old logging road behind where I used to live. Back then I didn't know how addictive porn really is. Boy, wasn't I wrong when I got old enough to buy porn legally. I started buying magazines by the dozen, watching porn movies whenever I could, and masturbating while watching the movies -- or even when I wasn't. Watching porn movies became the norm for me and I also spent, I bet, all total on mags and movies as a rough estimate, thousands of dollars on that garbage. And porn also led me to do something I thought I would never do -- and I only did it one time -- and that was have unprotected sex with a prostitute, which I look back on as a real dumb and illegal mistake.

Being a porn addict stinks. To be perfectly honest I don't like to treat anybody with any disrespect, especially women, because how I see how they have a hard enough time out here in this world as it is. They don"t need to be degraded by smut. Yeah I said it -- smut. To me porn is nothing but garbage and it is highly addictive and mentally and emotionally damaging. Hey I'm an honest man -- I admit I view that junk and I'm not proud of it at all. i wish to God i could stop because in all honesty I have nothing but respect for women, and all that porn and all that junk does is degrade them.

If someone ever tells me or you that there isn't anything wrong with porn, they are wrong. It's addictive and degrades women, and in my personal opinion and in all honesty I think porn should be outlawed plain and simple. But again that's my view and I wish to God I never got involved with that junk. And oh yeah, online porn is another one they should outlaw. There is tons of free online porn and that is extremely dangerous, since young children can easily access it.

To all the women out there, I personally apologize that I ever looked at something that makes you look like a piece of meat or a sex object. But anyway, I hope I made sense and that's my story.

Thank God for this website and other anti-porn sites on the Net, and God bless AntiPornography.org -- you guys are doing an excellent job. Keep up the fight against the porn industry and with God's help porn will be no more.

Thank you again,

Mike

Yeah, it's me again. But now I'm going to talk about incest. I get even more depressed when I find people support this. They even go as far to say incest is love and that incestuous couples are prejudiced. To me, this is clearly a sign of the degradation of humanity. Have we sunk this low to accept incest, now? God.
Izzy on November 3, 2011 at 6:32 PM said:

I am strongly opposed to both feminism and pornography, but here, I'm going to talk about how I feel about men being portrayed in pornography. I have noticed countless scores of young girls getting into this yaoi business, and I must say, as a fellow girl, I feel ashamed. Yaoi is dehumanizing to men, and there isn't enough attention on it - frankly because those involved are not women, and these horrible double standards prevent these horrendous human beings from being punished. The girls who love this genre of porn are extremely wild, loud, and disgusting. All they can think about is yaoi.

They keep it a big secret from their parents. Should their parents ever find out, they would get into trouble - and rightly so. Why should female addicts get away with this? Why should it be seen as just a "guilty pleasure" and not an addiction to porn? It confuses me greatly.

I have seen art infected with this, as well as literature. These women have no shame or empathy to men. They are disgusting and vile creatures who deserve to be burned. This may be cruel, but it is just. Humanity has become a shadow of itself. What was once considered R-rated several decades ago is tame compared to today's standards. What has happened to humanity?

Why can't anyone share a shred of normalcy? Why do they embrace such sick behaviours?

It depresses me. It really does. I cannot live a moment without feeling some sort of responsibility - I feel like I should pick of the pieces these vile girls have created. What's extremely sad - they're all young. My age. 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, younger. Older. As old as 60. Maybe even older.

This dehumanization of men needs to stop. I am sick of seeing men treated like dogs. Yaoi fangirls need to be faced with the consequences of their actions, and know that they have no humanity or decency with what they do.

I sound cynical here, and with good reason. I am a girl who has had guilty pleasures of her own, but I have actually managed to get over them.

I think when people say porn is harmless now, I feel the need to smack them. Porn is no longer naked women. It is the dehumanization (I love using that word) of all parties involved.

Women are not the only victims. They should not play the victim card. Men are not the only ones who view porn. These biases need to stop. Porn is destructive to humanity. Unfortunately...it may be too late to go back.

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!
