Here’s a great essay about how pornography contributes to violence against women and misogynist behavior and abuse.

Sexism and violence, prevalent parts of our society, have been leading factors in creating a male-dominated porn industry; it is designed to satisfy the desires of men who do not care for women. By encouraging violent behavior and sexual abuse in productions, this industry is sending a very negative message to society. Male behavior should, according to porn, be violent, dominant, aggressive, and tough; young males end up internalizing those standards for male behavior instead of developing on their own. The pornography industry promotes domestic abuse against women and creates twisted delusions of masculinity.

Sadly so true!

This essay was written by Emma-Li Thompson (@ehmmali), a supporter of AntiPornography.org who is a student at Arizona State University. It was Emma-Li who arranged for our volunteer Jessica Mendes to speak to her Women’s Studies class about Jessica’s harmful experiences doing porn. We recorded that very moving and informative speech in this video here:

We’re very glad Emma-Li reached out to us, and we’re thankful that she has been stepping up to do her part to take a firm stand against the harms of pornography and to educate others. Emma-Li will be doing some free-lance volunteering for our organization later this year, and we’re very happy about this. She is setting an excellent example to everyone of contributing to this cause in a much needed way, and we sincerely hope that others will follow her example. (It is necessary for more people to do their part to fight porn, or it will overtake our society even more than it already has!)

Thanks again for everything, awesomely anti-porn Emma-Li! 🙂

NEW HARM STORY! Ex porn performer Jessie Rogers shares how she got into porn, how harmful it was and why she left! ~~~~~~~~~~~~

JESSIE’S STORY:

I got into porn the day after my 18th birthday. Here’s how it happened…

A week before I turned 18, I was just scanning around the “jobs” section on Craigslist, not even looking for porn. I found an ad in the TV/film/video section that said “MAKE $20,000 – $30,000 A MONTH MODELING.” In the description it said nothing about porn or video work, they simply asked people to e-mail them a photo. Once I sent the agency a photo of myself, they got back to me instantly, asking when I could go see them. All they mentioned at the time was that they were looking for people to do “Playboy-style nudes.”

Once I got to the office to speak to them in person, we talked for hours, and the woman working there finally told me that she “basically booked girls for porn.” Then she handed me a sheet to circle the things that I was okay with doing. The only thing I circled was “solo.” She looked at it and said, “Well, the problem with this is that you won’t be able to make as much money as I proposed to you.” So I went on and circled “b/g” and “g/g,” which means boy/girl (me and a boy), and girl/girl (me and another girl). I didn’t circle anything else because I never intended to do anything else.

Every time I got interviewed by a company in the porn industry, my answers to the question “Why porn?” stayed relatively the same: “I love sex, so why not?” or “Getting paid for something I do anyway sounded like a dream job.” Etc. etc. The truth is that what draws people in is the quick money, especially for young girls coming out of high school. They may have some vague idea of what porn is like from having seen some of it, but in reality they have no clue what it actually is like to do it, until they get too deep into it.

That’s what happened to me. As embarrassed as I am to admit this now, I will humble myself and say that I was very naive when I first started in porn, and I believed all the things that people in the industry told me were true. I was so drawn to the money that I let myself believe all the lies that people fed me. I even believed my own lies that I told myself.

I am 20 years old now, and I retired from porn just a few months after I turned 19, so I didn’t do it for very long. However, it was long enough for me to finally see through all of the lies, and for the true colors of the “adult industry” to be exposed to me. Porn is not empowering, neither is it safe. But it did take quite a lot for me to face this and accept it. All of my plans to only do what I first agreed to changed after just a few months in the industry, after which I ended up jaded, disassociated, and brainwashed.

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.
