ALL men are porn addicts,no matter how often they watch porn or whatever way they get it,and I do belive that there is a small % of women who are addicts,its the men who wants their GFs to do porn/sex acts,like anal and other simularity.
Only when youre brain realise that porn is a real serious problem,only then,any sane person will want help,but saying it and doing it,are too different steps.
Kat on January 21, 2011 at 9:16 PM said:

After reading a lot on your site, I've come to the conclusion that I already suspected. I think my ex-boyfriend was very into porn, hardcore porn. I can't go as far as to say he was an addict, but I think he watched enough of it that he became jaded in regards to sex. He often wanted to do "facials", to put his hands around my neck, and often, if he was too rough and I would begin crying, he did not stop. I too became jaded into thinking this was ok, that he was just very horny and unable to stop having sex once he started. I thought this was ok and "normal." I know now that it's not.

There were times that if I didn't feel like having sex, he would pretty much talk me into it somehow, or force me sometimes if alcohol was involved. He is a very educated and intelligent person, so I was driven to a state of denial and believed that all of this was ok in a sense even though in the back of my head I knew it wasn't.

I found porn clips on his computer sometimes and I know that he watched it, but I suspect it was more often than I liked to believe. Even his mother said she found some on the family computer once after he'd visited for the holidays. She described it as "bad porn", so I suspect it was violent or degrading. For years our sex life was simply whatever was pleasing to him. I never had an orgasm and it didn't matter to him and honestly, not to me either as I just wanted to get it over with.

After looking on your site, I've realized that, almost without a doubt, porn was influencing this in some ways. It wasn't always this way, but when I began finding things on his computer was around the time this sort of sexual behavior began.

I'd like to thank and support you for educating people on the harms this can cause in many aspects of life, including intimate relationships. I look back and wish I'd been more aware of what was causing him to act this way sexually and why, and that it was not normal in any way. We're no longer together, but now I know I can look for these things in the future.

I've been a porn addict since I was 15 when I found a magazine on a train. I've struggled with this for so long, it's against my religious beliefs but it has plagued me on and off for twenty five years.

This site has horrified me and crystalised my long held desire to stop using porn for good. I've always known it is wrong but I was too weak to give up. The horrible truth of this industry has opened my eyes and provided the motivation for me to finally stop. I can see now how it is all a lie, the women hate it and are exploited. Us men are conned and exploited too, sad victims of our natural urges turned in perversion by this disgusting business.

I learned that Comcast makes over a billion dollars a year with porn, and then started researching sites such as this. I called my local Comcast business office to find out what their profit is from porn and met with a very huffy "we have many cable channels" and we do not limit our customers choice. I already cut out cable, have basic TV, but even that $17/month irritates me to support Comcast's porn empire.

I had been since cowed as a liberal to even question pornography. It is considered Free Speech! If Comcast cannot abide by the law and prevent hardcore porn from getting viewed by juveniles, why can we not tax the bejeezus out of it and require the industry to be better regulated?

My foster daughter was trafficked at age 16. I'm aware now how porn drives demand and much porn is filmed juvenile rape (there is no such thing as juvenile prostitution). My foster daughter was labeled "incorrigible" and put in group home for hard core far away from our home. That's when she was trafficked.

There must be so many porn and pedophilic people in our juvenile justice system?

Why can't we tax porn? Why can't we put more money from that tax into enforcement of existing laws and rescuing children from prostitution? Why can't we use that tax to ensure we have capacity to take down the 30,000 child porn sites on the web every day?

A state legislator here tried to have a porn tax bill a couple of years back and there were no takers. Why is porn Free Speech but my objections are met with "wingnut" and "prude" accusations? I think it is only logical....who agrees?
jehovasha on November 22, 2010 at 8:59 AM said:

First, let me say that as a spiritual teacher I deal with this issue more than any other. It causes the people who use porn to feel like losers and the people depicted in porn to feel the same.
The first thing I say to people who come to me for help is that sex is an act of creation. Yes, it creates things, children, love, homes and peace but if used as a weapon it detroys these same things. A young man will come to me and say "I'm gettin screwed" I then remind him of his last porn session and the thoughts he maturbated too. They usually involve sadistic and domineering words and thoughts. Well, in time this energy comes back to its originator, him and pretty soon he is getting f- in the a- and he doesn't like it. I always remind him of this, and remind him of the old adage, "treat others as you would like to be treated."
Originaly,sex was created as an act of surrender. When a woman has sex she is opeing her legs to death. For most of human history at least 1 out of every 13 pregnancies ended in the death of the mother. She surrenders her body, yet he must surrender his heart, the thing most men hold dear. Why are acts of surrender needed? To build trust and to forge lasting relationships. It bonds us together. This happens less and less as porn makes women only good for one thing and love is not it!
Sex is also an act of communication a language, an energy exchanged. When a woman is raped the rapist puts in his choas and confusion and draws out the victim's light and life energy. During periods of great stress we pour out life force energy and the rapist feeds off this. This is why the victim is often percieved as dirty and the rapist as a great guy. He has become a wolf in sheeps clothing. The same with porn.
I would like to leave you with a qoute by Lord Krishna who is the hindu version of Christ, he said 5000 years ago "When you pollute your women you pollute your world." Until people are no longer polluted in this way the enviromentalists and the world have no hope. WE must begin in our heart and inside our desires if we ever want to change the posioning of our world. We must stop posioning each other.

What have you created?
Gabriel on November 14, 2010 at 5:47 PM said:

It makes me sick when I think of all the people who don't know that their partner or ex-partner has put their private home-made videos up onto porn sites for thousands of strangers to see. That is so wrong and abusive. It's violating. I hate porn.

P.S. If anyone wants to read my story about how porn harmed me and my relationships, just see the harm stories page on this website. Thanks.
Nobody on November 8, 2010 at 8:39 AM said:

Emotions and desires are essential, but submitting to them is not. Watching porn wastes our time and energy, it distracts us from our life and goals.

What we need to know is that we are all human beings and are mostly similar to each other. What matters the most is our actions. Watching porn is a DETRIMENTAL ACTION, and if we choose to believe that our actions have consequences (as they truly have), we surely can avoid DOING EVIL ACTIONS.

Our lives is at our own hands. (-:

It is lovely to see so many men commenting on how horrible porn is- I thought I was lost in a world of perverts who thought it was the norm to treat women this way. I just wish I knew men such as these in my own life
Melanie on October 22, 2010 at 10:01 PM said:

Hey everyone. I've been working in an erotic store for about three years now and I must admit it is simply disgusting to see what kind of pornos men pick. The oldest men pick the teen movies, the younger the female performers the better, and the more brutal the sex acts the better. We have DVDs about men sewing up women's vaginas and everything else you can imagine.

Working in this place has really made my image of men worse. Every second DVD customer wants us to throw away the DVD cover. Why? Because he has to hide what he is watching from his wife, girlfriend, or whoever. Sometimes we have customers asking for help to pick a nice sex toy to surprise their wife, and as soon as the customer steps up to the register he asks screwed up questions like: "Where is there a whorehouse or a strip club?" Or he even changes his mind on surprising his wife and ends up buying some DVD with men peeing on women.

We have porn addicted customers calling us all stirred up because they're waiting for a new DVD that was supposed to come out. These people spend hundreds of euros on some stupid DVDs! They collect this stuff. This is sick! One of them lost his wife and has a lot of debt because of this!

I feel like throwing up just thinking of men liking lesbians, men watching porn, or men going to strip clubs or whatever.

All in all these things make me go crazy and this "sex society" that is made for men pisses me off big time. I cannot even go to a damn regular club without being forced to see female strippers hopping around in front of my boyfriend's nose, and everyone always expects me to accept it: "Men are like this," "It's in their genes," "You have to accept it," Blah, blah, blah... Get out of my face with this!

Pornography makes me feel really sad, empty and not well because of how it has ruined my relationships with my boyfriends and my father. (They are pornography users. See my full story on the harm stories page of this website.) I don't like these ugly ways. Why do they hurt us? Where is the love?? :(

Porn is making war on love, knowledge, kindness, true beauty and happiness. Porn is teaching people to use their bodies in ugly ways, like meat!

I love innocent and good people, animals and nature. I can't bear to see this beauty dying by bad ways like pornography.

People: Open your minds and hearts. Do good things in your life. Don't throw yourselves into the garbage. You deserve the true beauty of life, whether you are healthy or not. Make your brain think healthy. Do something good. It may be difficult, but doing good things is more difficult than doing bad things because the good things need your brain to do them. But you can do it.

I am 22 years old and I was addicted to porn videos, but as the days went by I started to notice that the porn movies are getting more and more ugly, disgusting, sick and brutal with young and innocent girls getting exploited.by the porn industry. Not to mention that there are some teenagers that just don't seem 21 or 18 years old, some even look like 14 or 15 years old and the websites declare that they are at least 18. The funny part is that people under 21 in some districts are not allowed to watch 18 year old girls being exploited by sick people that infect the innocent girls with their incurable diseases.

I am now over this ugly period of my life that was really making me sick, and regardless of what the reason is for getting over it, I'm glad I did get over it, and more than that I now have the courage to talk to porn stars and try to convince them to quit porn and start a normal life, so that's what I intend to do to help.
OvercomingAddiction on August 20, 2010 at 3:48 PM said:

I have battled pornography for the last 12 years. I've gone weeks and months clean, but then have inevitably relapsed. I had been doing really well for weeks recently, but was then starting to slip and was about to succumb completely tonight. Then I found this website, and it has completely killed off the desire I had. I CAN overcome this addiction. I know it affects my mood, my temperament, my interaction with my family, my girlfriends, my friends, my ability to be successful at work and all other areas of my life. It changes you.

PLEASE have the courage to beat this. There's others out there doing the same. I will, and I know you can too.
Ana on August 20, 2010 at 3:00 PM said:

I am so happy I found this website for people that truly care about what's going on in the world. There are far too many websites that are easily acessable to free pornography, filters in pages are not safe enough therefore neither is your family. These dirty sacs of trash target young teens making them become sex addicts as they get older. That isn't normal and neither is the addiction that porn can cause. It ruins jobs, families and your life. It's obviously prostitution, sex with others for money = the definition of prostitution. It's illegal to do it on the street but behind a camera it is legal. I suppose because the ones on the street can avoid taxes/are self employed. As for the behind the camera prostitution, it is allowed since you do pay those taxes and are employed by someone. Pornography should be illegal, the suicides, deaths, violence, sex trafficking, pedophilia, cruelty, the degrading is far too great for this to be ignored. The world will be far more pure, clear and pleasant if pornography became illegal. I think that day can come if enough of us speak against it and inform the proper authorities to join us on the fight against it.

Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality  

- by Gail Dines

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!
