Part 4 - Pornography

In the last 3 articles, we have considered aspects of the Internet that can have both positive and negative ramifications. Sadly, there is no escaping the subject that we now need to consider. There are no positive benefits, only sinful, dark, negative and life destroying ones. No one who has an email account or browsed the Internet for more than a few minutes can have escaped the intrusive darkness that this sin and money driven industry has cast.

Pornography ruins lives
Let’s make no mistake about it, this evil is all about money. The online pornography industry generates some $10B (roughly £6B) per year. It is a vicious and deeply addictive industry, taking advantage of our sinful desires, preying on the weak, and destroying lives. 
‘J’, a 26 year old man addicted to Internet pornography says:
“I go to work, I go to school, and I spend time with my family.  The people around me don’t know that I’m a shell of a person.  They don’t have a clue that I don’t feel my life is worth living… I grew more and more consumed by looking at pornography on the internet for hours on end… I grew more and more angry at the world… There’s no way to undo it now.  The only thing that numbs the pain digs me that much deeper into the hole… I have ruined my life, and I did it one day at a time as I sat down in front of my computer yet again.” 
Responding to ‘J’, Max says:
“What a sad story. I can feel his pain right now. I was a porn addict myself. I know how destructive this thing is. It doesn't let you think of anything, it breaks you slowly mentally and physically. Porn addicts find no interest in anything, they don't even like to be social, the world becomes a hell for them. This feeling takes them to depression - you stop believing in yourself, you feel like a criminal all of the time. In short it just destroys your life.”
Pornographic is easily found on the Internet. Here are a few statistics:
  • There are 4.2 million websites (12% of total websites). 
  • Every day, 1 in 4 search requests (68 million) and 2.5 billion emails (8% of total emails or 4.5 for every Internet user) are about pornography. 
  • The average age of first exposure to Internet porn is 11.
  • 90% of 8-16 year olds having viewed porn online mostly while doing homework...
