Transcript of The Mental and Physical Effects of Pornography

Sketches XXX Sociological Perspectives:

Conflict: Focuses on how media's messages are controlled by those in power. Sociologists recognize that a fundamental principle in American media is to attract an audience to sell to advertisers.

Interactionist: Investigates how the media defines our social reality. In what they tell us and what they choose not to tell us, the media defines our social world. I fight for every ten year old boy out there that has no idea the damage that porn can cause in his life.

I fight for mothers who worry over the safety of their children as they grow up in this difficult world.

I fight for lovers who want nothing more than an honest, open relationship where loyalty and genuine affection is at the core.

I fight for women who are tricked, trafficked and lied to, so that an industry can profit off of a woman’s sacred body.

I fight for girls who are told by society that they must someday grow up to look and act a certain way in order to be loved.

I fight for all those who are stuck in addiction and feel the stigma of shame and discouragement.

I fight because I am sick and tired of pornography ruining lives and distorting love!

I never imagined myself being involved with an anti-pornography movement, but now that I’m here I can’t imagine anywhere else I would rather be.

Just like a drug addiction, after awhile of using, your body becomes almost numb to the effects of the drug. So to get the same fix, you must use more and more drugs or go to harder drugs. This is where porn addiction can lead you to places you would've never considered going before. The life of a porn star

Many women in the porn industry come from broken homes

Many women feel like it's their only option

Many women answered a Craigslist ad for modeling not realizing the modeling was for porn.

They're made to feel special, promised a life of fame and fortune and are convinced to sign a contract they didn't fully read or understand

The average age for a porn star recruit is 19-21

Some women are victims of human trafficking and forced into what they do
