The Dangers of Internet Porn


Pornography addiction (or sex addiction) is not just a disease. It’s a destruction of life. It’s like eating Twinkies every day; eventually your body is going to fall apart with a bad sugar rush.

Sex addiction is one of those addictions that are not very much discussed in the public because unlike alcoholism and drug use, there are no immediate physical changes. People can turn on Internet porn, get a quick hit by visiting a favorite website, glance a few pictures, turn off the computer and then go walk the dog. It was as if nothing has happened.

However, something did happen. An ugly spike to the soul happened that sucked the energy right out of the victim.

With the advent of the Internet, no longer do customers have to absorb the embarrassment of walking out of those private video porn rooms. With Internet, all that embarrassment has disappeared. Porn fans can now enjoy their visual ecstasy at home when they want and how often the want. Let’s view the stats:

·   12% of websites on the internet are porn related
·   25% of all Google search requests are pornographic
·   35% of all internet downloads are pornographic in nature
·   Appx 30,000 Internet users are viewing porn every second!
·   260 new porn sites go online daily
·   SEX is the most searched word on the internet
·   US revenue from internet porn – $3 billion
·   72% of internet porn viewers are men
·   70% of Internet porn traffic occurs during a regular 9 to 5 workday
·   There are about 400 million porn web pages. 90% are produced within the USA
·   Porn has been credited to the popularizing of the internet

Pornography produces criminals
Pornography addiction has been attributed to skewed mindset of many serial killers like Ted Bundy, Dennis Radar (the BTK Killer), and Jeffrey Dahmer; all have expressed their appetite for porn as contributing to their sadistic brutal acts:

· Exposure to Pornography May Incite Children to Act Out Sexually against Other Children
· Rapists first objectify women, usually through pornography.
Forty (40%) commits only minutes after view porn.
· 77% of those who molested boys and 87% of those who molested girls admitted to the habitual use
of pornography

Pornography is an energy drain

Let’s say that you are the common man. You may ask, what does it hurt to see a few naked hard bodies? If you read many of the books on spirituality, pornography will drain you from the energy of life. In David Deida’s book, “Way of the Superior Man”, a man who acts out (masturbates) will have a good life, but not a great life. Why? Because so much your essence, your energy is lost in the act. Like any drug, it drains the life out of your being.

Pornography destroys families and careers.
We all heard about Tiger Woods. He admitted that he is a sex addict, but is seeking help. However his legacy will always include this period of his life that he only wishes to forget.

The SEC disciplined employees who download pornography material eight hours a day during the rise of the country’s financial crises. Let’s not forget former President Bill Clinton and his cigar antics.

I have personally seen people lose their jobs, lose their families, lose their minds because of porn addiction.

Pornography is an addiction.
As the old saying goes, ‘once and addict, always an addict.’ Fighting sex/porn addiction is a lifetime challenge.  While Tiger’s life may seem to be okay just because he’s playing golf again. Deep within he is fighting himself every day in every way. When a sex addict is in front of a computer, there is an urge to be fought like a smoker fighting the need for a cigarette.

Pornography is a curse. Once its evil enters your subconscious mind it occupies a piece of your soul. Those who are addicted will always have sexually stimulated thoughts and behavior that occupy the mind.

What can be done?
It’s obvious that we must protect children for the poison of Internet porn. If you are an addict, you need to protect yourself too. There are several tools on websites that can help you block pornographic content. The following are recommended websites:  opendns.com, bsecure.com, and netnanny.com

For those who are already addicted, seek help. There are organizations like Sex Addicts Anonymous (sexaa.org) that can help.

My own fantasy
My hope is that we all stop the porn culture from its increased integration into mainstream culture. In school, we learn the dangers of drinking and driving, and rightly so. However, though controversial, my hope that is that we make the porn industry to be the villains that they are and teach the youth that porn is not entertainment, but a mind altering behavior that destroys lives.

    And next you’ll be telling us it causes volcanoes too.
    No offense, this is ridiculous. People who make porn (or watch it) are not villains. They’re people just like you, me, and everyone else. Sex is fun. That’s the idea. There are some fucked up people who like their sex violent and with murder. (There’s a word for that: Erotophonophilia.) Those people must be fucked up for other reasons, or else everyone with a sex addiction would be just like them. Tiger lost control. His problem isn’t his sex drive, it’s his lack of self control. If he could keep his natural desires in check, he wouldn’t be in the mess he’s in. Sexual desire isn’t a sickness. It’s a natural drive in all living things that is a result of the process of Darwinian evolution. The creatures with desire made more creatures with desire, and the others died out. We like sex because we were built to by god, you might say.

      Well if you ever sat inside of a SEX ADDICTS ANONYMOUS meeting and listened to the addicts I’ve interviewed,
      they include child molesters, wife beaters, guys who have multiple affairs, many of them were unemployed because they were caught looking at porn in the office. I don’t know you, so maybe the porn people are like you, but I am certainly not like them.

      Tiger Woods is a classic case of someone who was on top of the world and it came crashing down.
      Regardless of what he accomplishes, the story behind him cheating on his wife will forever tarnish him.

      Sexual desire is not a sickness, so as long as its contained. But these constant images of pornography that are easily
      accessible to the masses are the very reason why I cannot allow my child to ride their bikes freely around the neighborhood, why
      I have to accompany them at the park, pretty watching every adult that lurks there.

      It’ not a nature drive to be so out of control that it causes devastation. Take it from me, someone who’s been molested,
      that pornography is a cause that as you say, ‘fucks’ up people.

        I’m not a crazy, child molesting, wife beating failure. If that’s what you’re saying, I’m not quite sure. I still believe these people are the way they are not because of porn, but because that’s how they were born, they’re upbringing, or whatever. Sexual aggression is an outlet to these people. I believe you can’t let your children ride their bikes around the neighborhood because there are child molesters, but also murderers, drug dealers, and kidnappers who sell children to the highest bidder, and also old men and women who can’t drive, but still do. Rabid animals come out at night as do criminals. Eliminating pornography won’t make us safe.
