From Porn to Hard Core
Impact on Relationships
Not Just a Man's Problem
Harder Porn = More Sexual Violence
The real-world effect of this? Those who work with sex abusers, like psychologist Layden does almost daily, find more and more that pornography is tied to sexual violence.
"After I'd done this work for about 10 years, I had a sudden realization that I hadn't treated one case of sexual violence that didn't involve pornography," she recalled.
The latest research shows heavy users of violent pornography are:
Six times more likely to rape
83 percent of rapists and 67 percent of child molesters consume hard-core pornography at high rates
A man using porn nearly doubles the odds he'll sexually assault his partner.
All these numbers are likely to grow as the Internet now makes porn accessible 24 hours a day.
Some call Internet porn the new crack cocaine.
"Pornography is sexual junk food," Layden said.
These scholars, researchers, psychologists and philosophers gathered by the Witherspoon Institute agree that in order to do something about it, society's going to have to tackle pornography like it finally tackled and demonized smoking.
Layden summed it up, "These are problems, they're causing damages, we need to treat them, and we as a society need to wake up!"
