Something to Think About . . .

Since pornography is addictive (like the internet or computer gamers) people keep coming back for more and more. The material seemed to provide a very powerful desire, followed a release of tension, and a distraction of a person's normal reality.
Many of the points listed below are the cause of, sexual curiosity, poor sexual performance, and a lack of affection toward others and a general dysfunction in what people consider to be appropriate, like the illegal action that are the cause of molestation, abuse, and harassment.
Many find the use of pornography as normal, however, it is addicting and leads to inappropriate behaviors such as sexting, bullying to have sex, engaging in sex when you don't want to, or when I individual isn't mature enough for such an emotional experience.
This denial can lead to poor judgment that is illegal and contrary to their previous moral beliefs. Afterwards, they tend to act out sexually to the behaviors they viewed in the pornography, including exhibitionism, having sex with minors, rape, and inflicting pain on themselves or a partner during sex. This behavior can grow until they find themselves locked into the need to experience what they see - no matter what the negative consequences will be in their life. Pornography are all around us, in a child's lost innocence, a woman's lost security and privacy, and a man's loss of self-control.
The use of pornography by its very nature isolates individuals-making those more intent on satisfying selfish needs. Being immersed in their fantasies, they tend to have an increasing sense that "everybody does it" and this gives them permission to continue.
