• 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)

USA flagUSA – Porn resolution passes Tennessee Senate
A joint resolution in the Tennessee General Assembly condemning pornography as a “public health crisis” that is making men less interested in marrying passed unanimously in the Senate. The nonbinding resolution was sponsored by Sen. Mae Beavers, and was passed without any discussion on the Senate floor. It calls for education, policy change, prevention and research on the negative effects of pornography. Specifically, the resolution says that more millennials are exposed to porn at a younger age, causing eating disorders, and that “children and youth are exposed to pornography that many times serves as their sex education and shapes their sexual templates.” The resolution now needs to pass the House before it’s sent to Gov. Bill Haslam’s desk.

USA – Leading corporations promoting pornography
Amazon, HBO, Comcast, Snapchat, Twitter, and the American Library Association are among the nation's leading corporations promoting pornography and sexual exploitation, according to the annual "Dirty Dozen" list released by National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE), a leading organization fighting porn. No corporation or organization should profit from or facilitate sexual exploitation according to NCOSE executive director, Dawn Hawkins. She continued that the disturbing truth is that many well-established brands, companies, and organizations in America are major perpetrators of sexual harm.

USA – Pornography a public health threat
According to the website Paint Bottle, 30 percent of all data transferred online is porn. In a 2015 info-graphic the porn site detailed that 70 percent of men consume the content compared to 30 percent of women and that the number of people consuming porn is rapidly increasing every week. According to Dr. William Struthers, a psychology professor at Wheaton College, any kind of pornography research is incredibly muddy water. "The unfortunate truth is that we can't keep up with the pornography that is being produced." Ian Kerner, a licensed psychotherapist, argued that excessive porn viewing often presents as co-morbidity with another health issue such as anxiety, depression or bipolar disorder.

Below is a comparison of London (1854) and USA (2010) Public Health profile. This table serves to provide such a porn health profile, using as a model the investigation of an outbreak of cholera in London in 1854, when the understanding of the Public Health implications of cholera by medicine was perhaps as primitive as that of pornography today.
