Stay Away From Porn Says...Pamela Anderson?

I know. I know. There's a lot of snark on the internet about Pamela Anderson warning about the dangers of porn. But maybe just maybe it's because of all that, that she should be paid attention to.

Anderson, along with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach writes:

We are a guinea-pig generation for an experiment in mass debasement that few of us would have ever consented to, and whose full nefarious impact may not be known for years. How many families will suffer? How many marriages will implode? How many talented men will scrap their most important relationships and careers for a brief onanistic thrill? How many children will propel, warp-speed, into the dark side of adult sexuality by forced exposure to their fathers’ profanations?

The statistics already available are terrifying. According to data provided by the American Psychological Association, porn consumption rates are between 50% and 99% among men and 30% to 86% among women, with the former group often reporting less satisfactory intimate lives with their wives or girlfriends as a result of the consumption. By contrast, many female fans of pornography tend to prefer a less explicit variety, and report that it improves their sexual relationships.

Nine percent of porn users said they had tried unsuccessfully to stop—an indication of addiction that is all the more startling when you consider that the dependency rate among people who try marijuana is the same—9%—and not much higher among those who try cocaine (15%), according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information.

But it is a fair guess that whereas drug-dependency data are mostly stable, the incidence of porn addiction will only spiral as the children now being raised in an environment of wall-to-wall, digitized sexual images become adults inured to intimacy and in need of even greater graphic stimulation. They are the crack babies of porn.
This is a pretty awful scenario in which people can come to be seen increasingly as objects for one's own pleasure. So yeah, pretty much the opposite of what Christianity teaches.

And hey, has anyone noticed that the marriage rate is dropping and our birth rate too? Hmmm. I wonder if there's any connection.
