WASHINGTON -- A group of scholars, social scientists, and psychologists are sounding alarm bells that pornography is much more harmful to society than most people think.

The group recently revealed before the National Press Club startling new evidence of how widespread porn has become in the U.S.

For instance, take a look at these whopping stats:

  • Americans rent 800 million pornographic videos every year - that's one in five of all video rentals.
  • Sixty-six percent of men ages 18 to 34 years old visit one or more of the 40,000-plus porn Web sites every month.
  • One in four women worry their partner's pornography habit is "out of control."
  • The porn industry spits out 11,000 new porn movies every year, far more than Hollywood's annual output of 400 mainstream movies.

From Porn to Hard Core

The media impression is that porn is pretty much harmless, sexy, fun. But the experts gathered together by Princeton's Witherspoon Institute, have a different view. A large portion of today's porn is so much more hard-core now.

"This is definitely not your father's pornography," University of Virginia sociology professor Brad Wilcox said.

One research paper from the Witherspoon study, From Pornography to Porno to Porn, by Pamela Paul - said of today's porn is far more violent.

"Particularly on the Internet, where much of pornography today is consumed, the type of sexuality depicted often has more to do with violence, extreme fetishes, and mutual degradation than with fun, much less with sexual or emotional connection," Paul wrote.

"Harder and harder-core stuff, stuff that I cannot mention to you without blushing," Hoover Institution researcher Mary Eberstadt described it.

These experts and researchers have concluded that pornography has begun a widespread warping in many Americans' private lives.

Impact on Relationships

For instance, men consuming porn rate their partners much less attractive than do those who avoid porn. For many porn addicts, when it comes to a real partner, it renders them nearly impotent or much less satisfied with their partner.

"If they had to choose between an actual sex partner who is in the bed and waiting for them, and going online, they'd go online," University of Pennsylvania psychologist Mary Anne Layden said of porn addicts she's studied.

Couples where the man consumed high amounts of pornography reported much less satisfaction in the bedroom. Porn users cheat more and go to prostitutes more.

Discovering their men's porn use has left many women feeling betrayed and distrustful. Almost three-fourths say it's hurt their self-esteem.

"The marriage relationship is traumatically damaged and decreased in terms of the emotional intimacy, which is actually the cornerstone of the marriage," Layden said.

It's even causing divorces. A 2004 Elle/MSNBC.com poll indicated one out of four divorces had something to do with Internet pornography or online adult chat activity. And the rate has gone up since "it's up something like 20 percent in the last five years," Eberstadt said.

Addicts are now losing jobs because they couldn't stop surfing porn on computers at work. More are suffering from depression and stress caused by porn addiction. More are spending less time with their children because of that addiction.

Paul, who is also the author of "Pornified," has written about the porn addicts she interviewed.

"Pornography's effects rippled out, touching all aspects of their existence," she explained. "Their work days became interrupted, their hobbies were tossed aside, their family lives were disrupted. Some men even lost their jobs, their wives, and their children."

Not Just a Man's Problem

One 2004 poll found 41 percent of women had searched out or downloaded erotic materials, 13 percent had watched or taken part in a live sex Web cam.

"It is contaminating all our relationships between men and women that are sexual," Layden said about porn's effects.

Now children are getting exposed to these X-rated materials at younger and younger ages.

"The age when children are introduced to pornography has been reduced from 11 years down to nine years of age," said Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, author of "Children at Risk."

It's so widespread among teens, 65 percent of 16- and 17-year-old boys and 46 percent of 16- and 17-year-old girls admit they have friends who regularly download pornography. Research shows teen girls exposed to a high amount of porn have sex earlier, are more promiscuous, take more sexual risks, and engage in more anal and group sex. So do the boys.

"There are a number of reports about adolescents who have experimented first with pornography and then tried to do what they saw on the screen," Eberstadt said. "Their sexual behavior is much riskier."

Layden said study after study shows pornography is related to, "early sexual behavior, earlier pregnancy, the desire to get pregnant, more sexually transmitted diseases in these children."

And those exposed for years want harder and harder material over time.

"They want more vivid, they want more obscene, they want more really crude images," Crouse said.

Harder Porn = More Sexual Violence

The real-world effect of this? Those who work with sex abusers, like psychologist Layden does almost daily, find more and more that pornography is tied to sexual violence.

"After I'd done this work for about 10 years, I had a sudden realization that I hadn't treated one case of sexual violence that didn't involve pornography," she recalled.

The latest research shows heavy users of violent pornography are:

  • Six times more likely to rape
  • 83 percent of rapists and 67 percent of child molesters consume hard-core pornography at high rates
  • A man using porn nearly doubles the odds he'll sexually assault his partner.

All these numbers are likely to grow as the Internet now makes porn accessible 24 hours a day.

Some call Internet porn the new crack cocaine.

"Pornography is sexual junk food," Layden said.

These scholars, researchers, psychologists and philosophers gathered by the Witherspoon Institute agree that in order to do something about it, society's going to have to tackle pornography like it finally tackled and demonized smoking.

Layden summed it up, "These are problems, they're causing damages, we need to treat them, and we as a society need to wake up!"

Porn is actually contributing to violence against women. This is bad. There's nothing inherently wrong about watching and enjoying, but with these adverse effects in mind, maybe people should monitor what they watch more closely.

Layden's study is interesting, but there's no reason to assume that porn involving women is inherently misogynistic. Yes, some porn that involves women can perpetuate some troublesome notions about gender, but it certainly doesn't constitute the majority. And even though the results are shocking, they are mostly based on a sloppy "correlation=causation" kind of analysis. I mean, just look at this sentence:

"Similarly, adult sex offenders showed a high rate of using hard-core pornography: child molesters (67%), incest offenders (53%), rapists (83%) were significantly higher in use than non-offenders (29%)."

What if these people interviewed just happened to like hardcore porn and only had an inclination to sexually violate people because of pre-existing pro-rape attitudes that didn't arise from the porn they watched? More research must be done in order to ascertain whether her conclusion is plausible.

The real causes are objectification (in the broadest sense that isn't exclusively sexual) and misogyny. And they exist independent of porn's existence. So if you want to help end violence against women, getting rid of porn is not the answer.

It has been forever known that porn is not 100% friendly as people make it out to be...but im not sure if they mean it on the level that you talk about. I mean i've known about rehab cases where the guys were broke and completely in debt because of it, I remember a guy who had managed to spend over 1000 dollars in porn in a month and he was a customer service rep winning 700$ per month. it can truly destroy people's lives, but that study seems a bit...off

In all seriousness that report is so one sided. Most of its "findings" are based on stupid kids which had no common sense/brains/a future anyway.

And I bet a study could find that most alcoholics perfer drinking over spending time with their partners. Doesn't mean that beer causes disinterest in relationships.

Sixty-six percent of men ages 18 to 34 years old visit one or more of the 40,000-plus porn Web sites every month.


Really? Only 66% have one or more a month? That ridiculously lower than I expected. O.o

Honestly, sounds legit to me.  Porn is pretty damned degrading when you actually think about what you're watching.  It does influence sexual behavior to a certain extent and that influence isn't really good.  It's just a matter of how much influence it has.  Not sure if this study is overestimating or not, but porn isn't completely harmless.

It makes sense. I mean, I've even experienced a kind of desensitization effect on my own sex life when I was involved in watching porn more than a few times per week.

Being desensitized to sex isn't necessarily a bad thing. Do women want guys who finish in two minutes because the sight of their naked bodies are just too overwhelming? I don't think so. I've watched porn since before I was a teen, and I think being desensitized really helped my stamina in the longrun.

It can affect the response we have to actual stimuli of having sex though. In porn you get numerous angles you don't get in real life, so ultimately there have been points where I've had to visualize porn I've seen to finish. When I limited my exposure to porn, I was able to 'normalize' sex with my partner.

I guess it depends on what kind of porn you like. The loud, exaggerated fake orgasms of most porn do nothing for me. I usually like the amateur stuff, and very often that's only one or maybe a few angles. It can take me a while to finish, but I think I also have a less sensitive penis than most men I think. I remember during my first BJ I was thinking "hmm, I thought this would feel better than it does".

The research was done by The Witherspoon Institute. On their page, it states:

The Witherspoon Institute is an IRS 501(c)(3) public charity that works to enhance public understanding of the moral foundations of free and democratic societies.

The Witherspoon Institute carries out its mission through the scholarly work of the Simon Center on Religion and the Constitution and the Center on Ethics and the University.


An institution dedicated to faith-based morals finds harm in pornography. No $hit, really? :roll:

I mean, from a strictly neuroplastic standpoint it makes sense. Our brains are constantly changing. So basically, if you orgasm at a greater frequency from pornographic material than you do a significant other, you're essentially going to have to rely on the pornographic material to help you reach orgasm at some point. If you view many different kinds of porn, with different women, in a short period of time...and get used to that. If you then try and have regular sex with one person, who's appearance is static, that can definitely lead to sexual problems.

That might be true, I don't usually do long-term relationships with one girl. I've known women who could only have an orgasm under certain conditions, and had to "retrain" their bodies and minds to be able to come in varied situations. The same could be true for men.

Or maybe sex is getting boring? :P Seriously I've been with girls that couldn't turn on a Microwave oven if they wanted to. Too much taboo around sex makes sex sometimes boring and pushes people into pornography and then disinterest. Sex should be a let-yourself-run-wild type of thing.

Who the flub would turn down a real girl for porn? The whole point of watching porn is that want to have real sex but currently don't have access to a real girl so you watch porn .

There's nothing wrong with porn; if people are using it to replace the real thing it's because they've never had the real thing, or they can't consistently get it.

I haven't seen a recent video of her in a few months, so I'm not sure. I would hope so. But the best Eva vids are still the old school pre-boob job ones. Would take some digging though. Not that I watch that filth or know who Eva is.

As with everything else, porn is best viewed in moderation. It does give you an unrealistic expectation, though.

I actually don't watch that much porn. I basically whack off to my own imagination of having a threesome while flying on the deck of a plane.

Large amounts of porn (specifically, quick and easy access to many different videos such as on tube streaming sites) can pretty much rewire your brain, and is thought to be the main cause of younger and younger men experiencing forms of erectile dysfunction.

[QUOTE="Rhazakna"]Being desensitized to sex isn't necessarily a bad thing. Do women want guys who finish in two minutes because the sight of their naked bodies are just too overwhelming? I don't think so. I've watched porn since before I was a teen, and I think being desensitized really helped my stamina in the longrun.chrisrooR
It can affect the response we have to actual stimuli of having sex though. In porn you get numerous angles you don't get in real life, so ultimately there have been points where I've had to visualize porn I've seen to finish. When I limited my exposure to porn, I was able to 'normalize' sex with my partner.

Sometimes I have to visualize porn just to get it up. Yeah, I watch porn too much.

That seriously scares me. I'm only 21 I can't be having ED before my 40s.
