The ease of access to pornography through the internet has led to a dramatic increase of consumption and acceptance in society despite its negative effects and has dire consequences for the entire world. In Gary Wilson’s TED Talk on “The Great Porn Experiment,” Wilson presents evidence showing the brains of pornography consumers react the same way as the brains of drug addicts and that compulsive users find it increasingly difficult to have intimacy with partners in real life. According to the survey, the same percentage of married men or women that regularly look at porn end up having an extramarital affair. Men exposed to a steady visual diet of pornography see real women as sex objects. Today, government is so incredibly perverse, especially at the federal level, that as soon as we start censoring porn on the Internet, some leaders will want to use that same precedent to censor truth.
Conditioning for pornography starts at a young age. Disney cartoons One recent study found that a vast majority of young girls as young as six, wanted to look like their dolls that were dressed in sexy clothes and makeup, versus their dolls that were dressed more conservatively. Furthermore, into the study, it was found that some girls, that were less likely to be consumers of media were intrigued and interested in the sexier dolls because of their taboo factor. On the other hand, girls who watched media, but had mothers that used these resources for education, were less sexualized.
One of the reasons people prefer to plunge their heads in the sand when it comes to porn is because the numbers are in some ways too staggering to fully comprehend. In 2016, for example, people watched more than an accumulated 500,000 years of pornography on just PornHub, which is roughly 12 porn videos for every man, woman, and child on planet earth. Never in recorded human history have so many people had access to hardcore pornography from virtually the time they can grasp a smartphone.
A number of studies indicate pornography is strongly linked to sexual aggression. Other experts argue it functions like an addiction, similar to drugs. Bestselling author and WND Managing Editor David Kupelian, author of “The Marketing of Evil,” “How Evil Works” and more recently “The Snapping of the American Mind,” said the prevalence of pornography in American life is unprecedented and has dire consequences for the entire country.
“Pornography has become so explicit and pervasive that tens of millions of Americans are outright addicted,” said Kupelian. “Porn activates the exact same addictive pathways in the brain as do drugs like heroin, and all addictions – whether to opioids, food, gambling or pornography – are extremely harmful and, by definition, a public health crisis.”
Gary Wilson’s TED Talk on “The Great Porn Experiment” has over 6 million views on YouTube. Wilson argues evidence shows the brains of pornography consumers react the same way as the brains of drug addicts. Furthermore, compulsive users find it increasingly difficult to have intimacy with partners in real life.
Some celebrities have also spoken up about the dangers of pornography. Movie star and former NFL player Terry Crews confessed his own struggles with pornography addiction in a series of videos, claiming his compulsion “really, really messed up my life.” He also urged women not to tolerate pornography consumption in their male partners.
Pornography impairs one’s ability to enjoy a normal emotional, romantic, and spiritual relationship with a person of the opposite sex. It erodes the moral barriers that stand against inappropriate, abnormal, or illegal behavior. As conscience is desensitized, patrons of pornography are led to act out what they have witnessed, regardless of its effects on their life and the lives of others.
Pornographic or erotic stories and pictures are worse than filthy or polluted food. The body has defenses to rid itself of unwholesome food. With a few fatal exceptions, bad food will only make you sick but do no permanent harm. In contrast, a person who feasts upon filthy stories or pornographic or erotic pictures and literature records them in this marvelous retrieval system we call a brain. The brain won’t vomit back filth. Once recorded, it will always remain subject to recall, flashing its perverted images across your mind and drawing you away from the wholesome things in life.
Jesus Christ warns against lust (Satan’s counterfeit for love – a selfish and destructive lie of immediate gratification substituted for selfless, harmony-building godly truth that lasts for eternity) in Matthew 5:
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
According to Joel Hesch, founder of the anti-pornography ministry Proven Men , “Porn should be considered a public health crisis because the addiction rate is climbing at a rapid rate, which in turn is harming the workforce and triggering a breakdown of families.” A 2014 national survey commissioned by the organization found one-third of men ages 18-30 admitted they are either addicted to porn (23 percent) or are unsure if they are addicted (10 percent). “According to our survey, over one-half (52 percent) of men age 18-30 admit to risking their careers and livelihood by viewing porn at work within the past 3 months,” Hesch told WND. “The numbers are even higher for men ages 31-49, with nearly three-fourths (74 percent) watching porn at work.”
Porn addiction is also leading to affairs and divorce, he said. “According to our survey, the same percentage of married men or women that regularly look at porn end up having an extramarital affair. Our survey reveals that 40 percent of married men watch porn at least several times a month and 35 percent of married men have sexual affairs. Similarly, 22 percent of married women view porn at least several times a month and 17 percent of married women have sexual affairs.”
Hesch argues it is a mistake to view pornography as a harmless vice that only affects the user. “Porn is a gateway drug that harms real relationships and often leads to losing a job, having an affair, or getting divorced,” he told WND. “It should be little surprise that the more frequently a married person looks at porn, which is often a form of sexually fantasizing about someone other than their spouse, the more likely they are at acting upon their fantasy through a sexual affair. When a porn compulsion damages relationships and causes people to ignore such high risks of cheating on your employer or spouse, it’s not just an addiction but a crisis that affects us all.”
Kupelian agrees. “It’s simply indisputable that constantly injecting graphic hardcore sexual images into the minds and souls of millions of Americans, including an overwhelmingly large segment of young people, constitutes a gigantic and growing problem,” he said. But the veteran journalist and culture critic worries any government action against sexually explicit material could be used as a precedent to abolish freedom of speech and regulate political discourse.
“The biggest obstacle to banning hardcore pornography from the Internet has to do with government itself. Today government is so incredibly perverse, especially at the federal level, that as soon as we start censoring porn on the Internet, some of our leaders will want to use that same precedent to censor truth, which of course they’ll label as ‘hate speech,’ or perhaps ‘rhetorical pornography.’” Thus, Kupelian says state action to restrict pornography would likely do more harm than good in the present environment.
“If we ever again establish a moral government ruled by common sense and Judeo-Christian values, then it might be OK for government to impose some reasonable restrictions on hardcore pornography, including online,” he argued. “But in the meantime, since we don’t want to encourage our power-mad government to get the idea it can start censoring controversial speech – say, like criticism of government, as is so common in China and other totalitarian states – possibly the best solution to controlling online porn is technological. Since we were able to put a man on the moon during the 1960s, and since today more technology exists in a single smartphone than was on that moon rocket, it seems we should be able to come up with a technological solution capable of getting the scourge of ubiquitous pornography out of our lives.”
What is unquestionable, Kupelian claimed, is the negative impact caused by the spread of pornography. Such degeneracy, he said, could endanger America itself.
“For decades, social scientists have documented the fact that civilizations rise and fall based on their sexual morality,” he observed. “For example, in ‘Sex and Culture,’ Oxford anthropologist J.D. Unwin surveyed 86 human civilizations, from the tiny South Sea Islands to the Roman Empire, and found that a nation’s destiny hinged on the limits it placed on sexual expression. What he called ‘absolute monogamy’ was the hallmark of the strongest, most economically successful and scientifically innovative societies in history. With the explosion of pornography and sexual anarchy, America is currently heading in the other direction.”
Experts have linked online pornography to children who have acted out as predators, due to the fact that many see such material and then act it out with other children. “Online mainstream pornography overwhelmingly centered on acts of violence and degradation toward women, the sexual behaviors exemplified in pornography skew away from intimacy and tenderness and typify patriarchal constructions of masculinity and femininity.”
A few years ago, on the 20th anniversary of the execution of Ted Bundy in Florida’s electric chair after he confessed to the sex-inspired murders of dozens of girls and women, the man who met with Bundy the night before recalled the interview. The interview came about at Bundy’s invitation to Dr. James Dobson, then head of Focus on the Family and now of Family Talk. Dobson had served on a federal pornography commission, and Bundy had read its report. Bundy, said Dobson, “talked about the role pornography had played in his life.”
He said Bundy admitted becoming addicted to porn as a teenager and acting out his fantasies on his victims. “He never blamed porn. He took the blame for [his actions]. But he said this played a major role,” Dobson recalled on the anniversary date. Dobson recalled telling Bundy, “For the record, you are guilty of killing many women and girls. Bundy replied, “That’s true.”
Bundy then described his early encounters with softcore porn as a teen, and his discovery of hardcore and violent images. “The most damaging kind of pornography – and I’m talking from hard, real, personal experience – is that that involves violence and sexual violence. The wedding of those two forces – as I know only too well – brings about behavior that is too terrible to describe,” Bundy said.
He continued: “In the beginning, it fuels this kind of thought process. Then, at a certain time, it is instrumental in crystallizing it, making it into something that is almost a separate entity inside. I was dealing with very strong inhibitions against criminal and violent behavior. That had been conditioned and bred into me from my neighborhood, environment, church and schools,” Bundy said. “I knew it was wrong to think about it, and certainly, to do it was wrong. I was on the edge, and the last vestiges of restraint were being tested constantly, and assailed through the kind of fantasy life that was fueled, largely, by pornography.”
Bundy said there came a point “where I knew I couldn’t control it anymore. The barriers I had learned as a child were not enough to hold me back from seeking out and harming somebody.” He then killed his first victim.

The report also lists pornography, along with an increased interest in practicing the “dark arts” and reading occult-themed literature, among the most spiritually dangerous practices that lead to demonic possession. Lucifer is the despotic tyrant and oppressor of all of Adam’s fallen race. He fully understands the behavior of his unregenerate human slaves (Eph. 2:1-3; Heb. 2:14-15) and he is the “supreme hunter” of souls (Isa. 14:16-17; Ezek. 28:19; Luke 4:5-6; 2 Cor. 4:34; 1 Peter 5:8). Satan fully comprehends the fallen nature of humanity and our sensual desires, which are governed and dominated by our five physical senses. He fully knows how to manipulate, entice, bait, snare and enslave his prey for his twisted godless will (Eph. 6:11-12). He has been an “active observer” of the transgressions of humanity for ~ 6000 years (see Gal. 5:19-21), and he fully knows that once immoral lusts and sexual vices have taken hold of and have snared his prey, he is able to bring to nought a particular people or nation for his own evil advantage (Gen. 6:2, Rom. 1:25-32, 1 Cor. 10:6-8).
Henry Makow Ph.D. says in a 2010 article on his website:
Porn is so freely available on the Internet, I can't believe anyone would actually pay for it. Yet, it is a $12 billion a year industry in the US, of which the Internet represents $2.5 billion. I suspect porn receives a hidden subsidy from the Illuminati so it can be free. This subsidy may take the form of money laundering. Porn serves a vital function for the Illuminati. We know they want to enslave us using debt, mind control and false flag terrorism. But we are not aware they have a deliberate program to enslave us spiritually using sex.
The Illuminati is a satanic cult based on the Jewish Cabala. The course of "modern" history and culture has been designed to induct the human race into this pagan sex cult. Cabalists believe that sexual intercourse somehow restores cosmic harmony. We have imbibed the idea that intercourse is an edifying mystical-religious experience. This has resulted in the deification of sex and young beautiful women. The exaggerated place of sex/romantic love in our collective psyche is evidence of mass deviance and satanic possession.
In reality, anonymous sex is an incredibly degrading experience for both men and women. Sexual degradation is the primary instrument used by the Illuminati to induct people into Satanism. Thus, they promote everything that is unnatural and perverse: anonymous sex, bestiality, incest, pedophilia, and homosexuality (which usually involves anonymous sex and more.) This is how they enslave mankind.
Monogamy and family are wholesome and life affirming. When sex is consecrated for marriage, it bonds husband and wife. Marriage provides a wholesome secure environment for raising children. "Sexual liberation" was a ruse designed to undermine marriage and family. "Sexual liberation" is the crucial first step to Satanism. It reduces all relationships to the lowest sexual common denominator. Men, and increasingly women, now think in terms of "hot or not," of "hitting" this and "doing" that, no matter how inappropriate. Sex has become a tiresome cultural obsession and fetish. Homosexuality is normalized and promoted.
Anonymous sex is the antithesis of monogamy and family. Yet anonymous sex is now the norm. We have been conditioned to think of anonymous sex as "self expression" and "liberation." In fact, it is the unfolding of their satanic methodology. It is how they dehumanize and destroy their members, how they win them for their evil deity.
Progression in the higher ranks of Freemasonry entails a series of increasingly degrading and perverse sexual practices, all designed to flaunt God and nature (i.e. what is healthy and good.) Craig Heimbichner writes in Blood on the Altar, "the secret knowledge of High Degree Freemasonry had been distilled by the OTO into a system of eleven degrees...the eighth and ninth degrees consist of sex magick (the eighth involves "magical masturbation" and the ninth, coitus--the "Sanctury of the Gnosis" ...while the eleventh contained a homosexual version of the ninth." (p.88) Unwittingly, we have been inducted into this cult.
In his Commentary on the Book of Laws, Alasdair Crowley advocated a "Thelemic candour" whereby men proudly behave like beasts. He argued that "incest, adultery and pederasty: should be openly practiced without "shame, slyness, cowardice or hypocrisy." Crowley demanded nothing less than childhood's end: "the Beast 666 adviseth that all children shall be accustomed from infancy to witness every type of sexual act..." (Craig Heimbichner, 113.) This is taking place before our eyes. The media and the education system are carrying out the Illuminati's satanic agenda with government complicity.
Pornography ensures that we judge people in terms of sex appeal. The damage it has done to male-female relationships is incalculable. It is a "turn-off" not a "turn on" for many men. Many men have nothing but contempt for women who display themselves wantonly, and this contempt spreads to all women. Thousands of beautiful young girls (models) are debauched and made unfit for marriage and motherhood. The stated Illuminati-Communist goal is to destroy marriage-family and make women a public sexual utility, i.e. amateur prostitutes.
All this is part of the hidden agenda of pornography. But the most important thing to understand is: We are under massive psychological attack. Sex is being used to enslave and induct us into Satanism. This deluded fascination with sex is a large part of what we call "modernism." To neutralize this attack, we must eschew pornography and anonymous sex, both in fact and in fantasy.
Here's an infographic that highlights some of the things we've learned about pornography.
Since online porn is more accessible than it was even ten years ago, it's important to keep in mind that its effects on our bodies, our brains, and our relationships actually aren't so hot.
But the good news is that no one needs to follow the evil, downward descent to torment. Everyone caught on that terrible escalator has the key to reverse his or her course and escape through repentance and be clean. First, acknowledge the evil. Don’t defend it or try to justify yourself. Second, seek the help of the Lord and plead with Him out of the depths of your soul that He will remove from you the addiction which enslaves you. Third, do all that you can to avoid pornography. If you ever find yourself in its presence—which can happen to anyone in the world in which we live—follow the example of Joseph of Egypt. When temptation caught him in her grip, he left temptation and “got him out” (Gen. 39:12).
Don’t accommodate any degree of temptation as it leads to inevitable destruction. Avoid it at all costs. Direct your thoughts in wholesome paths. Do not patronize pornography. Do not use your purchasing power to support moral degradation. And young women, please understand that if you dress immodestly, you are magnifying this problem by becoming pornography to some of the men who see you.
We must also act to protect those we love. Parents install alarms to warn if their household is threatened by smoke or carbon monoxide. We should also install protections against spiritual threats, protections like filters on Internet connections and locating access so others can see what is being viewed. And we should build the spiritual strength of our families by loving relationships, family prayer, Bible study, and virtuous and wholesome entertainment.
As the world gets more digital, open, and complicated, your kids are exposed to even more dangers. Keeping them safe is as hard as ever. This isn't meant to scare. Just inform. We need to be serious about the real threat kids face and come up with solutions to prevent them. Although it's true you will not be able to completely protect your child from danger, there are still plenty of things you can do, one of which is to make smart use of parental controls. Broadbandsearch.net actually did a really detailed post on them to help explain them a bit better. Here's the link to it: https://www.broadbandsearch.net/blog/online-safety-parental-controls
Pornography is a tremendous tool for Satan. Dr, Judith Reisman exposed in 1986 how Penthouse and Playboy magazines subtly introduced child pornography in their magazines. As pointed out in LifeSite News, The industry continues that evil direction and has gotten even more perverted. One of the genres of pornography that has been consistently exploding over the past decade portrays incest, and it is a simultaneously nauseating and revealing picture of the confusion that accompanies broken families. (Mary Eberstadt discusses the bewildering nature of the modern family, with biologically unrelated people moving in and out of people’s lives, in her chilling book Primal Screams: How the Sexual Revolution Created Identity Politics.)
At the time this article was written in LifeSite News in Early October 2019, the anti-porn organization Fight the New Drug tweeted the latest stats from PornHub to draw attention to this trend. This week’s number one top viewed video on the site—with over seven million views—is titled “My Stepbrother Brazenly Took Advantage of My Helplessness.” In it, a girl gets stuck, and her stepbrother rapes her while she begs him to stop, tells him that she’s afraid, says no, and tells him that “it hurts.” Seven million people watched that video this week alone for recreation and entertainment. They watched a girl get raped by a family member to experience arousal and enjoyment. Think about that for a moment.
This is not some fringe genre of porn anymore, either. According to Fight the New Drug, incest-related categories rank near PornHub’s top searches nearly every year now. As other anti-porn activists have pointed out, these genres just get darker and darker—as well as more popular as the years go on. Again, this information tells us something profoundly disturbing about the broken nature of our society, the state of the family, and the extent to which pornography is an increasingly toxic poison slowly seeping through every layer of our culture. We can pretend this isn’t happening, but it is. And it is happening in our families, our communities, our churches—and to our children.
