I just wanted to say thanks for this web-site and for what are you doing. It is extremely important.

I am young guy and also had a problem with porn before and I know how horrible it is when the porn just takes all your time, dreams, energy and your natural resources and finally you are becoming a slave - slave of the devil...

Dear Ms. Shelley Lubben I wanted to say that it is VERY important what you are doing, not only for porn actors but also for the people (like me) who can really see that hell behind.

May God bless you and I will keep you in my prayers...

(AntiPornography.org note: The above visitor addressed anti-porn activist Shelley Lubben in his comment. It appears he thinks Shelley created or runs this website, but for the record Shelley is not affiliated with this website in any way. However we of course do support Shelley's important work in educating people about the harms of pornography, and we do have a page about her on this site.

I had no idea that watching porn can lead to trafficking. I also didn't know that these things were going on in places such as Thailand. I learned about this website through the YouTube clip of the Tyra Banks show. I saw the porn star girl blatantly saying that she had gonnorhea.... All this is shocking.. This needs to be advertised more.

I don't understand how porn is LEGAL at all in this country. If a person has sex for money in this country - that is ILLEGAL - it's considered illegal prostitution.

But if a person is paid to have sex, and they happened to have a camera rolling - that's all of a sudden considered LEGAL - it's porn filmmaking! If someone gets money for selling heroine, it's illegal. If someone gets money for selling heroine while the camera is rolling, that's STILL ILLEGAL. This isn't acting - in real films actors do not actually put themselves in harms way. It is "make-believe". They don't actually subject themselves to HPV, HIV, STIs....not to mention scar tissue, recurring UTIs, kidney infections, bacterial infections, and PTSD.


PORN STARS ARE prostitutes on-camera. THEY ARE BEING PAID TO HAVE SEX. It's their job.

Often the more "hardcore" the scene, the more porn stars get paid. Most industry porn stars have agents. Agents get a percentage of earnings. So therefore, it is in an agents best interest to get their talent into higher paying and higher paying productions - most of the time the scenes get more aggressive, violent, risky...and the agents will commit their stars to these films w/o telling them the facts.

For a porn star, being defiant or NOT agreeing to do a certain scene or act, could mean being labeled as "uncooperative" by directors and w/in the industry. Being labeled as "picky" or "not daring enough" means LESS OPPORTUNITIES TO STAR IN FILMS. Many actors - men and women - often end up putting their health at risk and going beyond their comfort zone bc it means PAYING THE BILLS and keeping their careers afloat. Don't be fooled. Most people you ask - if they are honest- will tell you that they do not see heterosexual porn films with condoms being used. I worked in an ob/gyn clinic in NYC & we treated many women (who were porn stars) with SERIOUS health & emotional issues. Remember that even if people aren't buying it, but they're just downloading it for free- they're still ideologically supporting it just by giving the videos their viewership. By masturbating to it, a human is saying "this is okay with me. I support this." They are voting in favor of this horrible industry - I can't believe we live in a developed nation that let's this horror happen behind closed doors. It is depressing.

Porn is addicting, more it is insidious and will grow on you like a parasite. Porn opens young men and women up to a world of pain and suffering that they could never begin to glimpse from the get-go. It starts innocently enough with a computer in the bedroom as a teenager, it can end with taking one's own life like many of the men and women you watch like to do.

It will tear the lives of man and women, husband and wife, girlfriend and boyfriend apart. It will breed violence and decay within the minds of those who worship and salivate over these icons of sexuality and smut. It can be linked to an increase in murder and rape, pedophilia and a morphing of the social construct of sex in general. Porn is a gateway drug to deeper hardcore perversion and sadomasochism, the darker sins of humankind... SEX AND VIOLENCE AS ONE.

People think it's OK, but when you grow up with a computer in your bedroom, what you end up watching after years would scare somebody who has actually participated in actual hedonism. I haven't had a real relationship in many years because of my addiction and lack of self-control. You may say that's not me, but we all have urges, and you open up Pandora's box when you watch porn.

When you view pornography there are certain emotions and stress revealed, and when this become habitual, those emotions change almost overnight to guilt and anxiety, because deep down you know you're not only objectifying those women on the computer screen, but you're objectifying yourself, and your future partners. Not only that you're escaping something that you refuse to recognize within yourself, some lack of self-confidence or rage at the world. You are building THE damaging habit and burning terrible images into your brain that you will always carry with you unto death.

A healthy sexual relationship cannot exist in many people's lives when porn occupies a young man's thoughts, emotions, and chemistry. The problems with pornography here and America only embodies a much greater crisis, a crisis of the spirit, or the lack thereof in this civilized world. Be careful what dark forces you invite into your life and allow to take hold, because asking them to leave only faith and love can provide. Don't you have enough escapism already in your life, to invite another in you may never get out?
BenderCP on June 19, 2010 at 7:19 PM said:

Porn doesn't only degrade women but it degrades men as well. Nowadays it is stereotypical of guys watching porn to be insensitive 'users' with no feelings.

Porn also degrades love. Most people who regularly watch porn see sex as an easily acquirable feature instead of a huge expression of love.

Today's society thinks that if you do not watch porn at all, then you are considered homosexual. Most people don't even understand that porn stars won't be able to live normal lives anymore because of their "career". This is really sad :/

Now most porn addicts see women as tools instead of people with feelings too.

I hope there are other guys like me who feel the same about this subject.
I tried to explain most of these points to other guys, but most of them don't understand.

Thanks for this site, this site opened my eyes on pornography. I strongly believe that it should be banned (well, believe you me, the ones who secretly run the world are allowing such foul things to happen, so i guess it's not going anywhere). What porn tends to do is to brainwash the minds of the masses, making them think that what happens in a porn video happens in real life sex. That's not it! You really think that every women on this earth think it's okay for them to perform oral sex or to be ejaculated in their faces with semen, or be penetrated roughly? That's sick and it's disturbing. That's why till this day and time, I hate porn with a passion. It's destroying the lives of many children, men and women, it's satan's work and I cry because of the pain women are caused by these sick freaks! The porn industry in a few years will fall down and we will all live in a safe environment.

PORN IS SO DISGUSTING. I CAN'T BELIEVE NOW IT HAS BECOME NORMAL TO WATCH PORN. IT'S THE MOST DISGUSTING THING AND SO ABNORMAL. PEOPLE ARE SUCH FREAKS. THESE DISGUSTING MENTAL FREAKS ARE TURNING NATURAL FORMS OF LOVE/SEX INTO DISGUSTING FILTHY ACTS. NOT ONLY IS IT DISGUSTING TO WATCH, IT CAUSES MENTAL CHANGES AND MAKES PEOPLE THINK EVIL. AND IT'S ALSO JUST A WASTEEE, EVEN THOUGH IT GETS ADDICTING!! I DON'T KNOW WHO CAME UP WITH PORN IN THE FIRST PLACE. I AM SO DISGUSTED. WHAT IS THIS WORLD TURNING IN TO?! GRR EVEN LITTLE KIDSSSS WATCH IT! HOW TERRIBLY SAD!!!

Univerzall on May 29, 2010 at 10:51 PM said:

Some say that "porn pays" but I say it exploits and disrespects the foundation of all life, whether it be morally or physically. Now to those that justify it by saying that the "women consent to do this," that is pure bull because the only way people are able to get in this industry is because it was made legal. So I don't put all the blame on the woman. I put the blame on those people in power who condoned this lifestyle in the minds of the innocent young men, women and children. PEACE.

I'm not the usual statistic known to watch pornography. I am a homosexual 19 year old female who also enjoys engaging in consensual sensual activities. But I can strongly agree that today you've made a big difference in my life as to why pornography is totally unethical.

I do see myself becoming more physically and psychologically abrasive to the ones I care about after viewing pornography; I would impulsively hit, slap, or poke my partner to the point of annoyance, or I would make insults to her on weight issues. I would ask myself, "Does she really enjoy that?" while watching the grimaces and clenched eyes, (most commonly seen in heterosexual pornography), when I believe that sexual gratification is more expressive vocally as well.

Thank you so much for the clarification regarding the definitions of eroticism and pornography. You've really opened my eyes. I do not take pleasure in anyone's humiliation, therefore I will stop endorsing and viewing pornography.

I did believe at one point that pornography was "normal" since I assumed the girls who partook in making the films enjoyed it. Ideally people do things they love for money.

People who obtain gratification from Pornography, Prostitution, or engaging in a sexual act without permission should considered getting their heads checked.

Thanks again for personally approaching me for my comment, and a thousand more for creating your website and making a big difference!

Hello, my name is Alexandra.

First of all, I need to apologize to you. When I watched the Sasha Grey on Tyra video I rolled my eyes. I thought, "Uh-oh, an anti-porn person!" After all, what's wrong with sex? And as long as children are not involved, who cares? Let people do what they want, right? Wrong. First of all, porn is NOT sex, contrary to popular belief. Healthy sex is about love, porn is about power and money. Thank you for helping me realize this.

I am not a porn star but I have come close. I have been asked to appear in movies and magazines. I thought, "Wow! That means I am pretty! That means people DESIRE me!" I was so ignorant. You see, now I realize why I wanted to get into the industry. I wanted to be loved and desired and told I was beautiful. But there was a really strange gut feeling that told me, "DON'T DO IT ALEXANDRA!" I am glad I listened.

You see, I was sexually abused (stereotypical, I know) and I was overweight as a child and young teenager. I felt ugly and thought no one wanted me. When I lost the weight I wanted to get all the attention and acceptance that I never received.

When porn stars talk about "embracing their sexuality and showing their confidence" I think it is a load of crap. Why would any empowered, confident person want to be in a business where men ejaculate all over their face? If Sasha Grey is so confident and so empowered, why would she choose this profession? No, I am not religious. I support anyone in whatever they do. I just am saying that there are other ways to show your confidence. Just because you choose to do something does not make it okay and I just think it is sad that one of the only ways a woman can make more money than men is to do this kind of work. : (

One time I was giving a guy oral sex and he told me that I needed to "suck it like porn stars do." I was crushed. I guess I don't measure up to them. My breasts aren't big enough, I have pubic hair, and I am apparently bad at sex.

And it is hard for me to talk about this because I get shut down. People are like, "Stop being a prude and crazy feminist. Lighten up!" I struggle with this and I need help. I have even contemplated suicide because of past abuse and because of how porn has made me feel about myself.

Anyway thank you for listening and being brave to stand up to the industry. You have inspired me. I have gone along with thinking porn is okay because a lot of people are okay with it and I didn't want to be an outcast or ridiculed. But thanks to you for helping me stand up for what I believe in!

I also like your story about erotica vs. pornography. I don't have a problem with seeing two people having sex on camera, as long as it not degrading and both partners are enjoying it. I would actually rather watch this than a bunch of violent acts. There definitely is a difference between the two. I can't stand how pornography has warped people's ideas about sex!

Thank you for helping me and thank you for listening.

Love between people can be so beautiful but porn turns it into a filthy activity. And then I don't mention the fact that people get a wrong impression on what's truly love making, that women are seen as whores and sluts, not to mention the increase of sex-violations and worse - the use of women and children for sex slavery.

I cannot believe how mainstream porn is. The other day I saw a girl about 18 wearing a shirt that said "Porn Star" on it. I almost want to say something to her about it but I didn't. Anyway, I am proud to say that I'm the big sister of four little girls who will never step foot in the porn industry. The future is porn free!!!

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!
