Well, lots of folks just LOVE those low prices at Wal-Mart, but they should realize that every dollar they spend at Wal-Mart further enriches an employer that pays its workers so little that they routinely qualify for food stamps and Medicaid.
Likewise with porn: it might enhance your masturbation or finally convince your wife to try anal sex, but every dollar you spend on porn…and escorts…and strip clubs…helps to feed an industry that thrives on the suffering of others.
Pedophiles use porn to “season” their victims. If you want an 8-year-old to give you a blow job, you’re going to need to show him a photo so he knows what to do. 87% of molesters of girls, and 77% of the molesters of boys admitted to regular use of hard-core pornography.
Prostitutes often have porn made of them which is used to blackmail them (Farley, 2003)
At a 2003 meeting of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, two-thirds of the 350 divorce lawyers who attended said Internet porn contributed to more than half of the divorce cases they handled.
Porn performers commonly turn to drugs to cope with the effects of porn on their psyches. As ex-actress Shelley Lubben notes, “some women hate it so much you can hear them vomiting in the bathroom between scenes.”
Over half of convicted rapists in 56% of the rapists in 1988 study said they imitated favorite porn scenes while committing their crimes. And a detective examining rapes committed in Michigan between 1956-1979 found that porn was used before or during the crime in 41% of the incidents.
Say you and your spouse enjoy watching women get double penetrated. It improves your sex life. But in order for you to have this viewing pleasure, there is a woman out there who has to undergo double penetration. Now there is a chance that she greatly enjoys double penetration. There is a greater chance that she doesn’t, and is doing the scene because she doesn’t have the industry power to say no to it, but she APPEARS to be enjoying the double penetration anyway, because she is ACTING.
This woman might be doing the scene by total free choice. She’s a nymphomaniac, she can’t get enough sex. She may also be doing the scene because her pimp is withholding her cocaine until she does it. You don’t have any way of knowing, because as noted elsewhere, the women are not wearing labels that “Totally loving this double penetration” or “Want to vomit from the pain but need the money too badly.”
