This write up is a follow up to my previous article on United by nudity, divided by attitude. It also comes as an inner voice that I have been listening to and what I am going to write here might not go down with many, but you are entitled to your opinion on this topic.
It comes as no surprise that the internet is riddled with porn in this new era of ours. It is available by the click of a mouse. Women, men, teenage boys and girls, married men and women alike are all embedded in this culture of online porn. The internet porn is the “crack” or cocaine of sex addiction.
When we come to reassess this phenomenon, it is becoming a fact that an entire generation has grown up online. The audience of porn is comparable to the size of a fully packed football stadium such as the Michigan stadium. Do a word search on the internet such as ‘Anal’, ‘fuzzies’, ‘fruits’, ‘girls smoking, ‘feet’, ‘Asian women’, ‘squirting, ‘bondage’, ‘gang bang’ and immediately millions of websites would show you sites of adult entertainment.
However, online porn and its close associate online dating is ruining marriages, sex addiction has become so rampant, pedophiles are on the rise, gang rapes are becoming a toll order on police crime list daily. It has created so many cyber addicts who spend so much money and many hours behind the computer surfing through the World Wide Web. This era of porn provides instant gratification inside the comfort of homes, offices, mobile phones etc. It has become a substitute for meeting girls and dating them digitally rather than physically. Others have developed social problems meeting girls or even approaching females to engage in a conversation that will lead to a relationship. Subsequently, addicts pursue webcam relations with people they have never met and will probably not meet in their life time. You can call this a “second life” type of living.
The effect of internet porn on children is stunning. Children are growing up on the internet, consuming porn. Dad or mum might not even recognize that their kids are addicted to porn. They might not even recognize what pornography of today has become, since in their generation, they never grew up online. It now seems that the internet was created by and for sex. The internet is beyond the reach of parents, politicians and law enforcement agents. With no type of policing, any type of adult entertainment is deemed “legal”. It is out of control literally. Gradually, we are all going to face or are already battling a “porndemic”. Can this generation be rid of pornography or excuse my pun can we be “porn-again”?
