Pamela Anderson urges men to stop watching “corrosive” pornography

rexfeatures_5617350lf.jpg

Pamela Anderson has spoken out against pornography, labelling it  “corrosive” and  “addictive.”

The former Baywatch star has penned a scathing piece for The Wall Street Journal in collaboration with Shmuley Boteach, an American Orthodox Jewish rabbi and author. It's titled, Take the Pledge: No More Indulging Porn.

The piece references Anthony Weiner's recent sexting scandal, in which the American politician was caught sending an explicit photo in the presence of his young son.

Their op-ed states “[Pornography] is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated [it] is nowadays. How many families will suffer? How many marriages will implode? How many talented men will scrap their most important relationships and careers for a brief onanistic thrill?”

Making an example of Weiner, they state: “And if anyone still doubted the devastation that porn addiction wreaks on those closest to the addict, behold the now-shattered marriage of Mr. Weiner and Huma Abedin, a breakup that she initiated, reportedly, in shock at the disgraced ex-congressman's inclusion of their 4-year-old son in one lewd photo that he sent to a near-stranger. ”

Continuing to speak about the ramifications of the porn industry on the newest generation, they add that children who've grown up with technology ”will become adults inured to intimacy and in need of even greater graphic stimulation. They are the crack babies of porn.”

Concluding the piece, Anderson and Boteach suggest: "We must educate ourselves and our children to understand that porn is for losers — a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to rep the ample rewards of healthy sexuality."
