We’re hoping the results of this new study exposing pornography harms will encourage many men to stop using it! ~ (As well as encourage women to firmly say NO to porn in their relationships!)

    The study suggests most commercial porn follows a “homogenous script involving violence and female degradation.” Researchers say that, as porn has become a “primary source of sexual education,” those codes of behavior become more embedded and the more likely viewers are to use those scripts to act upon real life experiences.

    They found men who watch pornography several days a week rely on it for arousal and tend to involve it in their sex life by requesting particular pornographic acts. They also found the men who watch porn enjoyed sex less than those who didn’t watch porn.

Check out this excellent post on the leaking of celebrity nude photos, by a young pro-feminist man, Jonah Mix, calling out other leftist males for not being anti-porn:

    “I’ve repeatedly heard people online say that Celebgate isn’t about sex, but violence and abuse. What they fail to realize, of course, is that the two are inseparable in a sexuality constructed by pornography.

    Despite this seemingly obvious fact, in the last two weeks I’ve seen no less than a half-dozen folks on the general Left attempt to prove their feminist credentials by recommending that men avoid Celebgate photos and instead pleasure themselves with “consenting” women online. A few even expressed some kind of bewilderment regarding men’s motivations. After all, why look at a boring old nude photo of Hillary Duff when you could watch all sorts of painful, body-punishing sex acts played out against women who really want it? Aren’t you a feminist, dude??

    No man can see a female celebrity’s illegally obtained photographs posted online and enthusiastically click the download button, tissues in hand, without first being trained in a very specific sexualized disregard for women’s boundaries – an eroticism where the thrill doesn’t come despite the knowledge that the women involved is horrified and ashamed, but *because* of it. And while this eroticism has been around for thousands of years, pornography has allowed men and boys to be indoctrinated into it in a way that we’ve never seen before.”

Check out this very powerful and informative article on the harms of pornography and the issue of CHOICE, by an awesome pro-feminist young man, Kourtney Mitchell.

There are now multiple generations of men socialized on gross-level violence against women, brought to their computers, phones and game consoles via the internet. Porn stars visit colleges and universities for “sex week”; sports events increase revenues for sex traffickers; sexual sadism is deemed chic, and men claim oppression when anyone challenges their right to watch films in which men use their penises to choke and mutilate women.

If we were to claim that it is okay for a man to sexually accost a boy simply because that is what gets him off, we would be labeled as the sexually perverted predators we are. But when we claim that it is also not okay to treat half the human population in the same manner, we are dismissed outright.

We grow up conditioned to make certain choices – the choice to objectify, denigrate and treat women as sub-human. Even when our parents try their best to protect us from such content, the culture makes sure we continue to have access to it. Our whole way of being and living and behaving in this world is directly informed by dominance of women.

But when we know better, we should do better. The harms of pornography affect all of us. It is time we start making better choices. Our choices are the first steps toward reclaiming our humanity, and shedding the skin of collective perpetration in this world.

I do not want to live in a world where women are tortured on camera for profit. Do you? When you look into it, most of you will probably find that you don’t. Imagine this: what if that was your mother, sister, or daughter getting choked and crying and being called names? Most men would not get off on that.

I am one out of a growing number of men who are attempting to change the way we think of ourselves. Start by looking past the pleasure you receive from seeing another human being tortured on camera for profit. Consider the images outside of your sexual gratification, and instead consider them on the basis of how human beings should be treated.

Misogyny fueled by pornography causes male violence against women, like the UCSB killings by Elliot Rodger. Read below.

“In a world wherein men learn they not only deserve, but have the right to women’s bodies, Rodger’s behaviour isn’t really all that surprising. From the time they are young, boys are offered women’s bodies. They are provided with pornography, told that this is what women are for: your eyes, your pleasure, your dick.

Men and boys learn that what they want, they should have. That their every fantasy should be fulfilled. That prostitution even exists is proof of this message. That we live in a rape culture and a porn culture is further proof. What exactly did we think would come of telling men that sex is a right? That women owe it to them?

My dear friend, Elizabeth Pickett, wrote, of Rodger: “Real women failed to live up to the expectations created for him by pornography. So he killed some.” We offer men this fantasy — it’s no wonder they become enraged when women don’t perform as expected.”

NEW ANTI-PORN DOCUMENTARY: Featuring AntiPornography.org volunteer, ex-porn performer VANESSA BELMOND

20131018-152918.jpg

There is a NEW UK DOCUMENTARY that has been made on the harms of pornography! It will air Monday October 21 on Channel 4 and will then be posted on their site for 30 days! (Free On Demand.)

“Date My Porn Star” may not sound like an anti-porn doc, but it really is! And one of the things that makes it anti-porn is that our very own volunteer, ex porn performer Vanessa Belmond, is appearing in the documentary! She shares the HARSH TRUTH about porn with three male porn fans, and really wakes them up! 🙂

[Channel 4] – Watching porn has never been easier. With hardcore sexual imagery just a click away, more and more people, of all ages, are accessing porn. For many it not only forms part of their sex life, but can become a daily or even hourly fixture.

In this documentary, part of the Campaign for Real Sex, three British porn obsessives explore the boundaries between sexual fantasy and reality as they travel to the heart of the porn industry in Los Angeles to meet their favourite adult movie stars.

Forty-year-old Jonathan, 20-year-old Kevin and 23-year-old Danny are anticipating the trip of a lifetime. As well as meeting their porn idols, however, the men get more than they bargained for as they are faced with a darker and less glamorous side of porn.

Seeing their porn idols in action on set is enticing. But when they discuss their life and the value of real and lasting relationships it comes as a surprise for the men.

When they visit a low-end porn studio and witness a casting conveyer belt of wannabe porn stars, followed by a porn orgy that’s deeply degrading for female actors, the men begin to question their views.

The final meeting with an ex-porn star, who shares her candid, harrowing story, could be the final tipping point. Exposed to the challenging realities of the industry, can the men continue to reconcile their sexual fantasies with their experiences in porn-land?

———————-

NOTE: We will be sharing a lot more about Vanessa soon, including about 15 articles that she has written, and about 15 videos that we’ve done together! 🙂 But in the meantime we just wanted to let you know that Vanessa is going to be in this documentary, and that she did a great job! We hope all of you who are in the UK will watch this program and let us know what you think! Thanks! 🙂

A young man searched for ‘granny porn’ for 4 hours, then stabbed to death his step-grandmother

20131016-181515.jpg

Here is a VERY disturbing story about a young man who spent four hours surfing for hardcore “granny” porn, then murdered his grandmother right afterwards! But porn doesn’t REALLY affect the viewers and their attitudes and behavior, right?? It’s just “harmless ‘adult’ entertainment,” right? We’ll let you be the judge…

TRIGGER WARNING! Contains horrific graphic details!

[Mirror UK] — A ‘troubled’ young man knifed his step-grandmother to death in a sexually-motivated killing after an internet surfing session for ‘granny porn’.

Jack Huxley, 20, armed himself with kitchen knives and a carving fork to stab vulnerable pensioner Janis Dundas as she slept, leaving three blades protruding from her battered body before he fled.

The 62-year-old had given her wayward stepson a bed for the night after he turned up on her doorstep, apparently homeless.

But after a late-night session on her computer searching the web for ‘sexual activity between young men and mature women’, Huxley subjected his elderly relative to a brutal attack, leaving behind up to 28 knife wounds.

Ms Dundas bloodied body was found naked on her bed with evidence that her stepson had engaged in ‘sexual activity’ with her, but not intercourse.

Liverpool Crown Court today heard loner Huxley had never had a girlfriend, had a history of self-harm and been bullied regularly during his childhood.

His barrister Charles Miskin QC said: “He was like a wild animal who doesn’t care about anything.”

Checks of Ms Dundas’ computer revealed Huxley, who sat in the dock holding his head in his hands, had scoured the internet for hardcore pornography over a four-hour period leading up to the ferocious attack at her home in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire.

Among the catalogue of injuries were a nine-inch wound to her neck, severing the larynx, and ‘horrific’ defensive wounds to her hands which left one of her fingers ‘hanging off’, prosecutor Stuart Lawson-Rogers said.

Ms Dundas heavily bloodstained tights had been removed completely while beneath her body was a pair of Huxley’s Calvin Klein boxer shorts.

Today, Huxley pleaded guilty to murder on the first day of his scheduled trial, but Judge Clement Goldstone suspended sentence until tomorrow.

A neighbour told police how she watched a young man drive away from the scene, on April 5, in Mrs Dundas Peugoet car, momentarily crashing into a wall.

“MEET THE GIRLS WHO ARE BORN TO BE PROSTITUTES” (Toronto Star) — Average recruitment age has dropped to 9-12 years old

20131015-155626.jpg

PLEASE READ AND SHARE this heartbreaking article on sex trafficking of girls in India.

[Toronto Star] — Like many Indian girls, Suchitra was taught her future profession by her mother. In her village, there was only one path. Even before she’d reached puberty, Suchitra had learned different sexual positions and other ways to please a customer.

At age 14, a man she had never seen before showed up one day at the family’s house near Bharatpur in northern India. At her mother’s urging, Suchitra got into his car. Six hours later they reached their destination. It was a brothel in New Delhi’s red-light district. She had been sent into sexual servitude.

“I always knew that this would be my life,” says Suchitra, sitting in her wardrobe-sized room and wearing a low-cut green top and jeans, her hair pulled back in a tight bun. “I can never forget what I’ve done but it is the only way for my family to earn a living.”

Suchitra, now 20, is from one of hundreds of villages in India where centuries-old tradition dictates that most girls enter into a life of prostitution. Rising wealth hasn’t reduced the trafficking of girls for sex in the world’s second-most populous nation: the number of child prostitutes is growing and the average recruitment age has dropped to between 9 and 12 years old, according to the Delhi-based National Human Rights Commission.

“We are witnessing an unprecedented growth in prostitution,” says K.K. Mukherjee, a sociologist who has studied sex workers for more than three decades and has written government reports on the subject. “It is being driven by rising levels of income but also by a change in sexual attitudes and the increasing migration of women to cities.”

Districts such as Bharatpur, where half of the women are illiterate, are breeding grounds for the country’s $4-billion sex trafficking industry. India has 3 million sex workers, of whom 1.2 million are below the age of 18, according to a government estimate. The South Asian nation traffics more women for sex than any other country.

The growth of underage prostitution in a country where the gross domestic product has risen on average about 8 per cent annually in the past decade is testimony to the treatment of women and the power of caste in the world’s biggest democracy. India, which carries out almost 40 per cent of the world’s female sterilizations, where a woman is raped on average every 21 minutes and where a third of all women are illiterate, is failing to change views that undercut the status of women.

Whole families from some castes at the bottom rungs of India’s social hierarchy rely on income from their daughters’ sex work, with fathers and brothers often acting as pimps. The girls often have their virginity auctioned to the highest bidder once they reach puberty.

Suchitra, who is of the Bedia caste, shows how the caste-based system determines access to occupations and social status. Rooted in religion, the millennia-old structure marginalizes certain groups, imprisoning women in a cycle of isolation and abuse. Many female members of the Bedia community, which numbers about 20,000, say they are treated like outcasts. They can’t marry if they have worked as a prostitute, are refused service in shops, are called “whores” and are greeted with disinterest by police when one of them is raped.

“Caste remains a defining feature for most Indians,” says Satish Misra, a political analyst at the Observer Research Foundation, a policy group based in New Delhi. “These attitudes bring an enormous cost in terms of a lack of social mobility and lost economic opportunities.”

CASTE-BASED PREJUDICE

A single bare bulb exudes dim light in Suchitra’s room, just enough to see the black water stains on the peeling, faded pastel-green walls. Used condoms lie on the floor. The stench of urine, sweat and cheap perfume hangs in the air. Rats gnaw at piles of garbage in the corridors outside.

Suchitra, who would only give her first name for fear of arrest by the police, says she has sex with as many as a dozen men a day for as little as 100 rupees ($1.65) a time. A concrete slab that takes up most of her room serves as a bed, where she sleeps and does her work. Customers have threatened her with knives, guns and beer bottles, she says.
