Is Porn a Victimless Crime?

Gone are the days of porn being simply a magazine or two that is scanned quickly and thrown under a bed. In today’s world, porn floods the market. There are porn stores that cater to crowds of people, pornography books, magazine, fetish clubs and most disturbingly an ever growing enormous number of web sites devoted to porn. For some people, the overwhelming onslaught of so many easily accessible ways to view pornography can lead to disturbing behavior. Some may argue that viewing or reading porn does not hurt anyone; that is a misrepresentation of the truth. Porn can be destructive to those who use it, those who participate in making it and probably most importantly to the family members who have a loved one that is deeply involved with porn.

People can become emotionally addicted to porn and to deflect any judgment regarding that fact, they may defend there actions as saying they are satisfying a human need and that it is just a hobby to them. Quite contrary, the ingestion of porn can wreak havoc in a person’s life before they realize to what extent the porn has invaded their existence. If a person spends the majority of their life viewing or reading porn or if they turn down invitations to socialize with others for the purpose of viewing or reading porn, this is a red flag warning they are becoming a victim of the porn they love so much. A person who allows their life to revolve around porn may often find that it is affecting their career, their personal relationships and most importantly it is affecting the way in which they deal with and interact with real people in their lives. Porn offers a distorted view of sex, and those who are deeply involved with porn will eventually have a distorted view of how real-life personal relationships are achieved. They will have a difficulty understanding of how real-life sex should be a meaningful and strong form of affection with a partner and loved one.

For those involved in the making of porn, there are very few people who can truthfully say that they have become a better person through their involvement with porn. Woman may turn to employment in the porn business because of financial needs; it offers fast money for fast work. What they may not be aware of is the destructive force that comes along with that money. Whether it is through pornographic photographs, porn websites or porn video, their views of normal life and typical personals relationship will be inaccurate. Many will enter the world of porn because they already have been subject to abuse, neglect or dysfunction; living in the world of porn is certainly taking a step back into that dysfunctional life and not allowing a person to move forward. You can not put a price on the option of allowing yourself respect, and the opportunity to have a loving, real and meaningful relationship; one in which you are only sexually involved exclusively with your partner.

Many victims of porn are the family members and loved ones that live with a porn addicted person. This is a growing problem, especially for woman who are married to a man; one whom they thought was faithful and devoted to the relationship. Often a man, instead of dealing with relationship issues, will dive into porn as an escape route. Deceiving themselves into thinking that it is ok to “look but not touch” does much damage to a relationship. Falling deeper and deeper into porn, a man may eventually be completely unable to carry on normal conversations or devote time to common activities with his partner. His distorted view of sex may often lead him to feel dissatisfied with the normal sex he is receiving and blocks the possibility of a growing bond of emotional and physical trust that a couple should have together. Who say’s porn is a victimless crime? It must be someone who is in denial of its destructive value.
