Why Pornography is NOT Good for You - Part 1

Recently there was a lousy study stating that pornography was good for her users. I disagree for many reasons, and within the next few weeks I will be writing a series of entries explaining why pornography is NOT good for anyone.

The Pornography Industry is NOT Healthy

In April of 2004 there was a huge story in the news about the porn film industry being "hit" with an HIV outbreak. According the the website of the Adult Industry Medical Health Care Foundation , "It was thrown into crisis last month when five actors tested positive for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, in the biggest such outbreak in the Southern California adult industry since 1998. The industry decided to impose a 60-day moratorium on filming in a bid to stop the virus spreading further.

The virus is thought to have been passed by one actor to three women with whom he had on-screen sex without a condom. The fifth person was a transsexual performer unrelated to the other cases.

AIM said on Wednesday that about half of the 50 porn actors under quarantine because they had worked directly with the HIV positive actor or the actresses he had sex with had now tested negative for HIV three times in 45 days."

Since the very nature of the adult sex industry is illicit sex, that promotes pain to the actors/actresses involved, and preys upon poor unsuspecting people who want to be famous, and who have been sexually abused or neglected in some manner, anyone with a heart knows that this industry is not good for anyone.

The very nature of the industry is a defilement to the human body. The very act of having an organization set aside for porn workers like the Adult Industry Medical Health Care Foundation should alert everyone that there is a problem with the industry.

Common sense tells me that if I have to be tested for sexual disease all of the time and that my life is under threat of HIV and dozens of other sexually transmitted diseases, all of the time, that the adult pornography industry is NOT good for anyone.

This is a great post, Stacy. I look forward to the next one.

You reminded of a book I read by Henry Rogers: The Silent War. ISBN: 0892214910

You might want to check it out if you have a chance. One of the things I took away from the book was that much of the porn industry is the fault of Christian men who have allowed themselves to become addicted. Rogers, once addicted himself, comes right out and says that if Christians would just stop buying porn in all its forms then the industry would severely hurt for cash and probably cease to exist.

The Great Separation.
