Pornography

A great deal of pro-pornography academic research in the social sciences is taken up with th[e] task of masking the harms of pornography [rather than examining all the available evidence on the phenomemon and reporting it objectively], in order to defend the lucrative global industry and guarantee a continued supply of cool pleasures to the hip consumer.  One such piece of research, The Porn Report (2008)… was heralded as ‘the first piece of serious research‘ on the state of pornography…  The book is widely cited in political and academic debates for its analysis of the production, distribution and consumption of pornography…  The project on which the book is based [however]… was conducted in liaison with, and with support from, the peak Australian sex industry organisation, the Eros Association, along with pornography businesses such as Gallery Entertainment and Axis Entertainment…  In conducting the project, the [so-called] researchers confirmed [so-called] ‘good effects‘ [of pornography] by looking [only] in the obvious [pro-pornography] place: the self-reporting of a self-selecting group of currently active pornography users… [In fact, two of the Report’s authors] have publicly claimed to be users of pornography, and [one of them] argued that ‘feminists need pornography.’

Drawing from recent, peer-reviewed, research literature, as well as the latest reports and surveys… pornography constitutes a public health crisis.  While independently these studies do not prove that pornography causes harm, taken in totality, the converging evidence overwhelming suggests that pornography is correlated with a broad array of harms that adversely impact the public health of the nation.  These include higher incidence of STIs, increased verbal and physical sexual aggression, acceptance of rape myths, risky sexual behaviors among adolescents, reduced impulse control and reckless decision making, increased sexual dysfunction, and more.

It is not uncommon for pornography to elicit internal surges as addictive as cocaine… [and] similar to dependency on a drug — [pornography addiction] often goes unrecognized because addiction to a behavior is a relatively new concept to many people.  [C]ontinued exposure to pornography increase[s both] its [male and female] users’ desires for sexual contacts and behaviors outside their marriages and… leads [both] men and women to experience conflict, suffering, and sexual dissatisfaction… [wile] men who consume pornography on a regular basis [usually] experience increased aggression in attitude and behavior, noticed an increase in ‘rape fantasies,’ and felt increased indifference toward women in general.

Pornography has been called all kinds of things — degrading, harmful, addictive.
But the state of Maryland has another phrase for it: public health hazard.

https://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=WA19B53&f=WU19B17

[Which makes Maryland at least the 12th U.S. state (as of this writing) to condemn pornography.  Efforts are well underway across Canada and Europe to do likewise.  Most surprisingly of all, even mainstream, left wing media sources are beginning to admit certain truths about pornography.]

Nearly half of young adult women today believe viewing pornography is acceptable behavior…  On at least one occasion, about 1 in 4 girls sit down to watch Internet pornography for at least a half-hour straight…  About 1 in 7 girls have done this on multiple occasions…  Nearly a third of young adult women intentionally use pornography from time to time, and about 1 in 5 women (18%) do it habitually — every week.”
