WARNING!! VERY GRAPHIC & DISTURBING CONTENT!

DESCRIPTION: Porn performer Darren James was diagnosed with HIV in early 2004, and then infected several women, which led to a two month shutdown of the adult movie industry in Los Angeles. Featuring Sharon Mitchell, founder of the Adult Industry Medical Health Care Foundation and Rob Black, producer of Gonzo pornography.

WATCH this powerful TED Talk video about sexual objectification, how harmful it is and what can be done about it.

It’s an excellent analysis, but strangely seems to omit the elephant in the room — the most powerful sexually objectifying form of media in existence — PORNOGRAPHY! Oh well, hopefully the viewers of it will understand that when the speaker is referring to “sexually objectifying media,” that PORN is included in this category, and not just images from advertising!

LEARNING THE TRUTH ABOUT THE HARMS OF PORNOGRAPHY SET ME FREE FROM MY ADDICTION

— By Aaron (41, trucker, U.S.)

Thanks for all you’re doing to fight off the porn industry. It’s absolutely amazing how blind we can be to the effects of pornography until our lives become damaged. I allowed myself to continue drifting into my porn addiction up until recently. I always figured I’d eventually “grow out” of it. I would set New Year’s resolutions year after year, thinking I could just indulge until that date and stop for good. I have been living a double life for over 20 years.

I married, got divorced, and have three girls. Ironically my wife got me started into my pornography addiction. For my 20th Birthday she bought me a one-year subscription to Playboy. She thought if I read the magazine it would help our sex life. But all it did was make me resent my wife for not looking like the Playboy models. Our sex life was boring and I eventually found more pleasure in masturbating to the Playboy photos. I found pornography to be a convenience because it was all about my own satisfaction rather than having to worry about pleasing my wife. We divorced after eight years of marriage because we were both just bored with each other.

So I started buying more hardcore magazines. Playboy wouldn’t do it for me any more. I remained hooked because of the lie that there will always be something better around the corner. Just check out one more website or just check out this one last porn star. There was always something new to be curious about.

I have always known that pornography is wrong. But my problem has been not having an understanding of WHY it is wrong. Somewhere in my mind I could reason that since I’m not the one committing the acts on the set nor did I set the stage or hire the performers, somehow it was okay. My addiction progressed to me hiring prostitutes and having sex in oriental spas. I just craved sex any way I could get it.

The one thing that broke this cycle was when I began surfing through anti-porn sites, starting with your AntiPornographyBlog channel on YouTube that featured Sasha Grey’s interview with Tyra Banks. Discovering what it’s really like to be a porn star got me to the point where I don’t care to re-enact their experience anymore.

Part of my addiction was my envy of porn stars. I envied them because I thought they were really living it up, making all kinds of money while enjoying nonstop sex. By visiting anti-porn sites I could see that they actually live a miserable life. I didn’t know that so many of them have died of suicide, overdoses, murder, and AIDS. I also didn’t realize how many are abused and underpaid.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized it was affecting my personal life as well. Every time I’d come home to my family I couldn’t wait to get back on the road so I could indulge in porn again. I have also been lying about my finances because I couldn’t admit I was spending money on my addiction.

So here I am, taking it one day at a time. I don’t view pornography anymore. To occupy my time I read through anti-porn sites and I find more time to exercise. I could go to a porn site right now, but I choose not to. Again, thanks for helping me open my eyes to the truth about pornography.

PLEASE WATCH this powerful and sad video about a 17 year old girl who died on her first night working at a strip club. So heartbreaking! It also shows the connections of porn and drugs to strip clubs, and how prevalent underage work in the sex industry is. Tragic! Hopefully a few strip club johns who see this will reconsider supporting such a corrupt and exploitative industry, and hopefully the perpetrators who caused the girl’s death, and who exploit women and girls, will be brought to justice.

Also please don’t forget to like, comment on and share this post to spread the word and support the cause. Thanks! 🙂

VIDEO: Ex Porn Star Traci Lords Reveals She Was Raped in Steubenville: ‘It’s Absolutely The Reason I Ended Up In Porn’

Here is another powerful video of ex porn perfomer Traci Lords speaking out against the Steubenville rape case. In it Traci clearly points to her own rape at age 10 as the reason why she entered the porn industry: “But I can tell you this: It completely poisoned me. It was absolutely the reason that I ended up in porn films and on the streets when I was 14 and 15.”

Traci also adds:

“I want her [the recent Steubenville rape victim] to know, and all the Jane Does out there, that there’s somebody out there. “It’s me too. It’s not just you.” And there will be people out there who say terrible things about her. No matter what they say, it doesn’t define you, and it was not your fault.”
 

 
Additionally, below is a video of Traci’s second recent appearance on the Piers Morgan CNN show with attorney Gloria Allred. (On 3/18/2013) Tracy really gives one of the rapist’s attorneys a piece of her mind when he starts to try and divert the conversation away from the perpetrators of rape by attempting to shame her for her past!
 

 
Also about Traci, here is what she said on the Oprah Show about her being in porn when she was an underaged teenager: (Note: the additional text is from the Oprah show.)

———————

“I had stars in my eyes,” she recalls. “And I thought, ‘Okay…maybe this is a way of having the attention and having everybody like me.”

Traci grew up in an abusive home and was raped at the age of 10 by a neighborhood boy. Battling her “self-loathing,” Traci says turning to the porn industry was her way of getting attention. “It wasn’t about sex… it was about numbing out, finding a place to put that anger. I was very aggressive…it was vengeance…it was about attention.”

———————-

These sorts of emotions and this sort of mindset are very common for young women who enter the porn industry. These young women often SAY to their “fans” that they “love sex” and they’re happy doing porn, and that’s why they are there. But the truth is that in most cases they are victims of prior sexual abuse or parental abuse or neglect, and they are seeking love, attention and acceptance — which of course they will never authentically acquire in porn, as they inevitably find out the hard way.

In any case, we thank Traci for her honesty and hope that other young women learn from her experiences and choose to seek authentic love and healthy empowerment in real life, over the false promises of the toxic, unhealthy, lie-filled porn industry.

Traci grew up in Steubenville and was raped there herself when she was only ten years old. She has recently been speaking out loudly and clearly in the media about the horrific epidemic of rape that is being committed in our society by men and boys against women and girls, her own experiences with rape, and her perspective about the recent high-profile Steubenville rape case.

TRACI’S MUSIC VIDEO: “Stupidville”
 



Traci has also publicly connected pornography and rape on more than one occasion. Here is a brief Q & A from her appearance on Piers Morgan’s show on CNN last week: (During which Attorney Gloria Allred ALSO spoke up against the pornification of our society and it’s connection to rape!)

Piers: “Do you think, Traci, that the amount of pornography that these kids can get access to on the Internet and so on these days is having a bad effect on them? Is it desensitizing them to proper behavior with women?”

Traci: “Absolutely. Absolutely.”

VIDEO: Traci Lords and Gloria Allred on Piers Morgan: 3/14/2013
 



Thanks again, Traci! We really appreciate everything that you are doing to raise awareness about RAPE CULTURE and its connections to PORN CULTURE!

——————–

Traci also followed our @AntiPornography Twitter account yesterday and retweeted one of our tweets thanking her for speaking out about rape culture and quoting her from her recent OMG Insider interview!
