GREAT NEWS! The government just won the legal case requiring the porn industry to prove that all workers are over 18 years old! The pornography industry brought the case against the government because they felt it was too much of a “burden” on their “free speech” rights to have to ensure that underage exploitation wasn’t occurring by documenting the age and identity of everyone that was being photographed in the nude by them, or being filmed having sex. (“Sex” that is almost always unsafe, and often full of cruelty, abuse and degradation.) Thankfully the judge in this case wisely disagreed with the pornographers and decided to hold them accountable!

Needless to say the porn industry is upset about this. @MarkKernes of Adult Video News just tweeted:

“@markkernes: 2257-The good news: No more warrantless searches without probable cause. The bad news: We still have to prove we aren’t child pornographers.”

We actually think that pornographers having to prove that they aren’t sexually exploiting children is perfectly reasonable. What about you? Do you agree?

Check out the details of this case and this anti-porn victory below in a press release by Stop Porn Culture:

JUDGE FINDS AGAINST PORN INDUSTRY IN FREE SPEECH COALITION V. HOLDER

The Free Speech Coalition, the lobbying arm of the porn industry, suffered a major blow today in their challenge to the constitutionality of 18 USC 2257, which requires them to keep age verification records that porn performers are 18 or above. Judge Michael Baylson, a federal judge serving on senior status for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania found in favor of the government and ruled 2257 to be constitutional under the First and Fourth Amendment.

Dr. Gail Dines, an expert witness for the Department of Justice, argued that 2257 was vital for protecting children from being sexually exploited by the porn industry. Because “Teen Porn” is one of the top porn search terms in the world (500,000 searches daily), one of the largest porn genres on the internet, and the female performers in this genre look especially youthful, Dr. Dines argued that 2257 is one of the key ways to prevent the porn industry from using minors as a way to build a consumer base for young looking female performers.

WHEN YOU OBJECTIFY WOMEN IN PORN, YOU OBJECTIFY YOURSELF (AND YOUR CURRENT AND FUTURE PARTNERS)

By GlobalNonCompliance (male, 20’s, U.S.)

Porn is addicting, more it is insidious and will grow on you like a parasite. Porn opens young men and women up to a world of pain and suffering that they could never begin to glimpse from the get-go. It starts innocently enough with a computer in the bedroom as a teenager, it can end with taking one’s own life like many of the men and women you watch like to do.

It will tear the lives of man and women, husband and wife, girlfriend and boyfriend apart. It will breed violence and decay within the minds of those who worship and salivate over these icons of sexuality and smut. It can be linked to an increase in murder and rape, pedophilia and a morphing of the social construct of sex in general. Porn is a gateway drug to deeper hardcore perversion and sadomasochism, the darker sins of humankind… SEX AND VIOLENCE AS ONE.

People think it’s OK, but when you grow up with a computer in your bedroom, what you end up watching after years would scare somebody who has actually participated in actual hedonism. I haven’t had a real relationship in many years because of my addiction and lack of self-control. You may say that’s not me, but we all have urges, and you open up Pandora’s box when you watch porn.

When you view pornography there are certain emotions and stress revealed, and when this become habitual, those emotions change almost overnight to guilt and anxiety, because deep down you know you’re not only objectifying those women on the computer screen, but you’re objectifying yourself, and your future partners. Not only that you’re escaping something that you refuse to recognize within yourself, some lack of self-confidence or rage at the world. You are building THE damaging habit and burning terrible images into your brain that you will always carry with you unto death.

A healthy sexual relationship cannot exist in many people’s lives when porn occupies a young man’s thoughts, emotions, and chemistry. The problems with pornography here and America only embodies a much greater crisis, a crisis of the spirit, or the lack thereof in this civilized world. Be careful what dark forces you invite into your life and allow to take hold, because asking them to leave only faith and love can provide. Don’t you have enough escapism already in your life, to invite another in you may never get out?

MY STORY OF CHILD SEXUAL EXPLOITATION AND SADISTIC SEXUAL, PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL ABUSE

By Jack from Canada (male, 21, found AntiPornography.org through YouTube)

WARNING! VERY GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING !!!!

I am a survivor of child sexual exploitation. The absolute hell that I went through all those years ago still haunts me to this day, both the memories and the physical, mental and emotional damage that unfortunately will never completely heal. I would not wish what I went through on the Devil himself. I hope some of you find my story to be helpful and if I can reach at least one man, woman or child, then I know sharing my painful past will have been worth it. The following is my story…

Ok, where to start. I was around 5 or 6 years old when the abuse started. It all started when I was at a Youth Group meeting and I had to go to the bathroom. I was walking to the hallway in the corner of the gym where the bathrooms were. I was met in the hallway by the leader of the group. I forget his name but he asked me where I was going and I said I had to go to the bathroom. He said he would “help” me.

I knew how to use the toilet, so I didn’t need help, but I allowed him to accompany me. When I was finished he grabbed a kleenex off the counter and was “cleaning” me off. He threw the kleenex in the toilet, but continued to touch me. These trips to the bathroom with him eventually became routine, and I just accepted it as his “help”. Then, when I was 6 or 7, I graduated to the next level up of the Youth Group. And it is here where the truly sadistic acts of abuse took place.

The first memory I have of being abused in this new Youth Group was when I was taken to the basement of the church. There was a general rule, and that was to never go into the basement. It was “off limits”. Anyways, one night the leader of the group said he wanted to talk to me about something, (I forget what exactly) but it was important. He led me out of the gym, and led me down the concrete steps into the basement. We went down the hall, turned a left, and entered the first room on the left.

All the doors were steel, and the walls were made of solid concrete. I remember that there was a small table and chairs on the right wall, and in the far corner, there was a cot, or some type of bed. He didn’t turn the lights on because there was a yellow-tinted window above the bed, which let in enough light. He told me to take off my uniform. I did, down to my underwear. And then he told me to take the underwear off too. I remember tears streaming down my face as I did it. Then he said that I was perfect, and started caressing and kissing me.

We hope that everyone in the U.S. who is celebrating is having a wonderful day! That said, today we also are thinking of the many millions of people globally who are enslaved, especially vulnerable women and children in the sex trade, and we hope that you will not forget about them. We hope that you’ll do everything that you can from here on out to help them become free and independent also — like the rest of us. Thanks and best wishes to all! 🙂

THE HARMFUL AND ABUSIVE EFFECTS MY BOYFRIEND’S PORN USE HAD ON OUR SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP

Kat (female, 30, U.S., found AntiPornography.org through YouTube, username frolickunicorn)

After reading a lot on your site, I’ve come to the conclusion that I already suspected. I think my ex-boyfriend was very into porn, hardcore porn. I can’t go as far as to say he was an #addict, but I think he watched enough of it that he became jaded in regards to sex.

He often wanted to do “facials”, to put his hands around my neck, and often, if he was too rough and I would begin crying, he did not stop. I too became jaded into thinking this was ok, that he was just very horny and unable to stop having sex once he started. I thought this was ok and “normal.” I know now that it’s not.

There were times that if I didn’t feel like having sex, he would pretty much talk me into it somehow, or force me sometimes if alcohol was involved. He is a very educated and intelligent person, so I was driven to a state of denial and believed that all of this was ok in a sense even though in the back of my head I knew it wasn’t.

I found porn clips on his computer sometimes and I know that he watched it, but I suspect it was more often than I liked to believe. Even his mother said she found some on the family computer once after he’d visited for the holidays. She described it as “bad porn”, so I suspect it was violent or degrading. For years our sex life was simply whatever was pleasing to him. I never had an orgasm and it didn’t matter to him and honestly, not to me either as I just wanted to get it over with.

After looking on your site, I’ve realized that, almost without a doubt, porn was influencing this in some ways. It wasn’t always this way, but when I began finding things on his computer was around the time this sort of sexual behavior began.

I’d like to thank and support you for educating people on the harms this can cause in many aspects of life, including intimate relationships. I look back and wish I’d been more aware of what was causing him to act this way sexually and why, and that it was not normal in any way. We’re no longer together, but now I know I can look for these things in the future.

I BELIEVED THE LIES OF PORNOGRAPHY AND IT INFLUENCED ME TO BE ABUSIVE IN MY RELATIONSHIPS

J.L. (female, 19, U.S., Found AntiPornography.org through YouTube)

I’m not the usual statistic known to watch pornography. I am a homosexual nineteen year old female who also enjoys engaging in consensual sensual activities. But I can strongly agree that today you’ve made a big difference in my life as to why pornography is totally unethical.

I do see myself becoming more physically and psychologically abrasive to the ones I care about after viewing pornography; I would impulsively hit, slap, or poke my partner to the point of annoyance, or I would make insults to her on weight issues. I would ask myself, “Does she really enjoy that?” while watching the grimaces and clenched eyes, (most commonly seen in heterosexual pornography), when I believe that sexual gratification is more expressive vocally as well.

Thank you so much for the clarification regarding the definitions of eroticism and pornography. You’ve really opened my eyes. I do not take pleasure in anyone’s humiliation, therefore I will stop endorsing and viewing pornography.

On a very personal note, only once as a preschooler was I sexually abused by a stranger; after the occurrence I gained a very different perspective on sex at a young age; but differently I did not see sex as appropriate until someone becomes of consenting age. I did also believe at one point that pornography was “normal” since I assumed the girls who partook in making the films enjoyed it. Ideally people do things they love for money.

Psychologically, I was very repressive about being objectified as something sexual; I’m not in total denial of myself of anything sexual, I am passionate and have natural urges as a human. However it took me many years before I finally allowed my emotions to gather and understand that I was violated as any of the girls who partake in pornography or prostitution, the only difference is that I wasn’t given monetary compensation.

People who obtain gratification from pornography, prostitution, or engaging in a sexual act without permission should considered getting their heads checked.

Thanks again for personally approaching me for my comment, and a thousand more for creating your website and making a big difference!

PORN SCARS AND LEAVES HAUNTING MARKS INSIDE OF YOU

~ By Gabriel (male, 21, Sydney, Australia, found AntiPornography.org through YouTube)

Porn harms in a big way. This is my story.

I was 13 when I first saw a pornographic movie. The sex was rough and unloving. The guy grabbed the female by the throat and cussed at her as they did their thing. As I watched my insides twisted and churned with emotions I couldn’t even process. I was too young and didn’t fully understand what I was seeing on the screen, so comprehending that and my emotions at the same time was impossible. As I watched I felt like I left my body and went back in again. I was shocked, emotionally sledgehammered, but paradoxically incredibly turned on by seeing a completely naked female for the first time.

The whole experience burned on my mind like a permanent mental branding. I internalised my confusion. I packed it away to process and look at another time but I couldn’t shake those scenes from my mind for days after. The movie fascinated me sexually and from them on I saw a lot of porn.

My real problem was that my dad has never had a job and was always at home. He was really into porn and just used to sit around the house watching porn videos on the TV in our living room during the day while my mom was at work, so my siblings and I didn’t have a choice about viewing it because we couldn’t help but see it. This was especially true during school vacation times as us kids were home every day.

Later on, as I started my own sexual relationships as a late teen, I found I couldn’t connect with my partner emotionally during or after lovemaking. It was like I was an empty shell. I just switched off from them although I wanted nothing more than to feel love. From foreplay onwards, I always felt the same feelings coming back up inside me as I felt the first time I’d ever seen pornography as a 13 year old. It happened to me the first time I was ever physically intimate with a female and it shook me to the core. During lovemaking I felt the same shock, the same weird emotions, the same kind of out-of-body feelings.

Those emotions from when I was 13 had been around the whole time and came out forcefully to tell me they were still around. They screamed in my face from deep inside: “Don’t you forget about us!” Instead of enjoying intimacy with my partners and growing in sexual confidence with them, I grew more and more unconfident, more nervous and more self conscious.

At my worst point, last year, I became impotent for a time as lovemaking just got so stressful for me and emotionally difficult to deal with. I think my body’s refusal to get an erection was my own subconscious refusal to make love. I didn’t enjoy lovemaking. I just felt numb. I wanted more than anything in this world to feel LOVE when I made love, instead of stress and nervousness.

Right now I’m blessed with a really caring and understanding partner but I feel so guilty about the way I am. I’m currently in therapy and gradually I’m starting to change. My confidence is growing. My guilt is lifting. The negative emotions are not so strong. I love my girlfriend so so much for sticking with me over a difficult time. She always says to me: “I love you, you’ll get better, I’m with you for good so get used to it.” 🙂 Yeah, of course I love her too. 🙂

It makes me sick when I think of all the people who don’t know that their partner or ex-partner has put their private home-made videos up onto porn sites for thousands of strangers to see. That is so wrong and abusive. It’s violating. I hate porn and I wish I’d never seen any porn at all because of how it gave me such a warped idea of my own body image, what sex is, and what lovemaking really is. I’d be glad for the whole industry to collapse and disappear as there is no doubt, no doubt at all that porn harms. It scars and leaves haunting marks inside you that cruelly play with your heart and mind. Porn harms.

I just hope that even if one parent who is like my father comes across your site and reads my story then they will have some respect for themselves, their partner and their family and stop the harm they are doing.

Thank you for your wonderful AntiPornographyBlog YouTube channel and your awesome website. Good luck with your fight and BLESS YOU. 🙂
