Default The Negative Effects of Porn (May be NSFW)

I know many of you are avid pornography lovers, which is all well and good. But there are many people have become obsessed with it, to eventually develop and addiction to porn. It can ruin relationships and their mental health if it isn't dealt with. Now I understand it does not mean everyone who watches porn will become addicted to it in an highly unhealthy way, but don't you think it's becoming a problem? It is so easy to access, especially for free!

Article on the increase in porn addiction:

Porn addiction increases across the country

Quote:
According to experts, 25 million Americans visit cyber-sex sites every week, leading some to become sex addicts.
Interesting Statistics
  1. Every second - $3,075.64 is being spent on pornography.
  2. Every second - 28,258 internet users are viewing pornography.
  3. Every second - 372 internet users are typing adult search terms into search engines.
  4. Every 39 minutes: a new pornographic video is being created in the United States.

Adult Internet Pornography Statistics
  1. Men admitting to accessing pornography at work: 20%
  2. US adults who regularly visit Internet pornography websites: 40 million
  3. Promise Keeper men who viewed pornography in last week: 53%
  4. Christians who said pornography is a major problem in the home: 47%
  5. Adults admitting to Internet sexual addiction: 10%
  6. Breakdown of male/female visitors to pornography sites: 72% male - 28% female

And even more interesting:

Women and Pornography

Women keeping their cyber activities secret: 70%
Women struggling with pornography addiction: 17%
Ratio of women to men favoring chat rooms: 2X
Percentage of visitors to adult websites who are women: 1 in 3 visitors
Women accessing adult websites each month: 9.4 million
Women admitting to accessing pornography at work: 13%
Women, far more than men, are likely to act out their behaviors in real life, such as having multiple partners, casual sex or affairs.

Source

Statistics are from credible sources according to the article, but the main point is to see that a lot of people are really affected by porn.

The second part of this thread is to discuss the effect on porn stars in the industry. Many of the stars abuse drugs, alcohol and catch STI's. Here is a 5 part video of Shelley's story as a ex-porn star and what she had dealt with. The video can be religious as times, but it's what worked for her, so please don't get in a huff about it. If you can't be bothered watching the whole thing perhaps watch the first and second parts.

Part 1:



Part 2:



Part 3:



Part 4:



Part 5:



What is your opinion on the effect of porn? Do you believe it negatively affects porn stars mental and physical health? Is the porn industry ruining lives by sucking people in? Or is it really a choice for people to get into it or get out? Is it really worth doing when an alarming number of stars get chlamydia, herpes and HIV?

A particular question I have is, do you actually think women enjoy it? Do you know that they spend hundreds of hours filming the shots and they have to hold positions for ages?

i only know my hands shake if i choke the monkey too much

and my cock ring hurts

i'm hardly a porn addict, though, it's controllable

only problem i have these days is that i'm feeling more and more ennui for the conventional stuff and my tastes have become rater eccentric

and no worries about the health of porn stars, i'm hardly into hardcore porn and more into objectification and voyeurism (which might be worse, depending on your point of view)

When are you addicted to porn? When you have to watch porn? That sounds so weird to me.

Does my obsession with Japanese girls licking doorknobs count as an addiction to pornography?

About the effect on actors, I believe the specifics vary widely on a case to case basis. Some may have gotten into it because of a history of abuse while that's not true for others. Some may become exploited by cynical producers while others are not. I know there are female porn actors who have gone on to produce their own movies and becoming more so part of the industry than before when they just acted and I guess that shows they are into it willingly. Perhaps women producing porn are more sensitive to other female actors in movies, so that could be a good thing.

There are undoubtedly a dark side to porn. Generally speaking, I guess the more unknown/cheaper the production, the darker it is.

As for the consumers, I think it can be unhealthy. As an example, I worry that niche porn which features the sexualization of very young girls (common in Japan) can help enable pedophilia. For normal porn which includes consenting adults not doing anything very dangerous, I'm not too worried.

i think it's even harder for the men - they get paid like 1/10th of what the women get, if they're doing straight porn - even when they do gay porn, they only somewhat reach the salary of the women if they play the passive part

if women has to hold positions, the men have to hold erections - i've seen documentary footage where often chemicals are used or other bizarre methods to sustain erections - i don't think most men in the porn industry enjoy it that much
