Fight The New Drug

This weekend Janine and I went to two meetings featuring a speaker from Fight The New Drug.

The speaker made three main points:

Pornography is just as addictive as drugs, alcohol and tobacco.  While watching porn the brain will rewire itself just like with other addictions.

Pornography destroys relationships.  The speaker cited several studies on how porn is destroying people's ability to relate to real relationships.  In a video clip a young woman talked about how both her and her husband started turning to porn rather than each other.

Pornography is harming society.  The speaker focused on how the porn industry is often abusing women to make the movies, and sometimes even children and men.

It was a sobering presentation.  Check out their web site for more information.
