• Dangerous

    Easy access, anonymity, and affordability have made pornography attractive, but few realize the dangers.
    Pornography affects not only the user but also the loved ones of the user.
  • Addictive

    Studies show that brain function changes in someone who has an addiction– and the changes are the same with someone addicted to pornography. Because pornography use can become an actual addiction, viewers are not able to stop through their own will power.
  • Addiction Escalates

    Addiction: You keep coming back to porn. It becomes a regular part of your life. You’re hooked and can’t quit.
    Escalation: You start to look for more graphic pornography. You start using porn that disgusted you earlier, but is now enticing to you.
    Desensitization: You begin feeling numb towards the images you see. Even the most graphic porn is no longer arousing. You become desperate to feel the same thrill again, but you can’t find it.
    Acting out sexually: This is the point that you make a critical jump and start acting out the images you have seen and rehearsed in your mind.
  • Children Harmed

    Average age of first Internet exposure to pornography: 11 years old
    15-17 year olds having multiple hard-core exposures: 80%
    8-16 year olds having viewed porn online: 90%
    Nine out of 10 children aged between eight and 16 have viewed pornography on the Internet.
  • Easy to Access

    U.S. pornography revenue: $13.3 billion per year
    Pornographic websites: 4.2 million (12% of total websites)
    Pornographic pages: 420 million
    Daily pornographic search engine requests: 68 million (25% of total search engine requests)
    Daily pornographic e-mails: 2.5 billion (8% of total e-mails)
    Internet users who view pornography: 42.7%
  • Marriages Destroyed

    There isn’t a more efficient way to make your wife feel betrayed, used, and violated than if you use pornography.
    Pornography will ruin your marriage - guaranteed.
  • Fuels Sexual Offenses

    The consumption of pornography can be directly linked to violence against women.

    "I was on the verge of acting out these kinds of thoughts … and it happened in stages … you become addicted … I would keep looking for more explicit, more graphic kinds of materials … until you reach the point where the pornography only goes so far. You reach that jumping-off point where you begin to wonder if maybe actually doing it will give you that which is beyond just reading about it or looking at it.” - Ted Bundy (Serial Killer)

australiaAustralia – Victoria: New internet child pornography laws close loopholes
New laws will be introduced into the Victorian Parliament, making it easier to catch and prosecute those who engage in the "absolutely evil trade" of internet child pornography, according to Victoria's Attorney-General. Three new offences will be created to tighten a number of loopholes and the maximum penalty for child porn offences will be doubled to 10 years' imprisonment. The new offences include administering a child porn website, encouraging the use of a website dealing with child porn, and a new offence about providing assistance to any other person. Every one of these child pornography images has come at the expense of an innocent child.


indiaIndia – India blocks 857 websites citing pornography's threat to decency
India ordered Internet service providers to block access to 857 pornographic and humor websites posing a threat to public morality in the world's second-most populous country. Among those listed by the Department of Telecommunications are humor site 9GAG, CollegeHumor and Playboy. ISPs were told to immediately confirm compliance with the order, which also mentioned websites Barstool Sports and Adult Friendfinder. The ban comes after a lawyer petitioned the Supreme Court to block sites featuring pornography on grounds that they fueled crimes against women and children and were a threat to public order. India has the world's second-largest number of Internet                        users with about 350 million people accessing the Web on personal computers and mobile devices.



usa flagUSA – Survey of US men shows over 60s and 70s viewing pornography
A study of 2000 men over 50 in the US has found porn is being watched by a large number of older men, many in their 60s and 70s. The survey, undertaken for Stop Procrastinating, a productivity research website, found that 47% of men over 60 had admitted to viewing porn in the last two months. Almost all respondents said their use of porn had increased since they had access to the Internet. Tim Rollins, research director at Stop Procrastinating, said: "Our survey shows that Internet pornography is now affecting every generation. Older men are either turning                                to pornography out of loneliness or because they have access to it through the Internet."

USA – Symposium looks at evidence of the destructiveness of pornography
The National Center on Sexual Exploitation held a symposium exposing pornography as a public health crisis and how porn fuels sex trafficking, child exploitation and sexual violence. "Pornography is one of the root causes of sexual exploitation," said Dawn Hawkins, vice president and executive director of the Center. Neurosurgeon, Don Hilton from the University of Texas, presented evidence of the impact pornography can have on the human brain. The more pronounced pornography usage, the more shrinkage occurs in the reward area of the brain that occurs, he said. Former president and CEO of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, Ernie Allen, called upon Congress to pass legislation to curb the availability of graphic online pornography.
