Naomi Wolf of New York magazine paints a painful but accurate picture in her insightful article, In the End Porn Doesn’t Whet Men’s Appetite– It Turns them Off the Real Thing, “For most of human history, erotic images have been reflections of, or celebrations of, or substitutes for, real naked women. For the first time in human history, the images’ power and allure have supplanted that of real naked women. Today, real naked women are just bad porn.” I had never thought of it in this way before. Back in the day, guys used porn to sort of “hold them over,” until the real partner, the warm, huggable, lovable woman.  10 Hardcore Facts About the Porn Industry...mentally prepare yourself for shocking info you probably don't know

It seems that little moving pictures on a screen are usurping what once was our spotlight. Wolf explains, “When I came of age in the seventies, it was still pretty cool to be able to offer a young man the actual presence of a naked, willing young woman. There were more young men who wanted to be with naked women than there were naked women on the market. If there was nothing actively alarming about you, you could get a pretty enthusiastic response by just showing up. Your boyfriend may have seen Playboy, but hey, you could move, you were warm, you were real…Well, I am 40, and mine is the last female generation to experience that sense of sexual confidence and security in what we had to offer.” It’s funny how connecting to someone with eye contact can be exhilarating, or making a crush laugh can keep you high for two days. The body nowadays is overly emphasized. It’s great, but we’re forgetting that we have lots of other goodies too.

Aside from all the tall walls porn makes you climb to reach euphoric and ecstatic rewards like the pleasure and power of making love, the exciting discovery of one’s authentic sexuality (vs. reenacting a script you watched that turned you on so you want to follow the script in the bedroom) or the valuable emotional connections sprung from actual sexual relations, it funds child porn and sex trafficking. It’s not just a matter of, “my bf watching porn makes me feel sh*#ty about my body,” but an international deletion of child rights and human rights. 10 Hardcore Facts About Porn you don't wanna know, but need to know. Brace yourself.

If you think investing a few bucks in adult porn or even a few minutes on a free website that has ad sponsorship is harmless, you are mistaken unfortunately. All pleasures it seems have a cost. Porn is sex trafficking publicity board. Not only do traffickers use porn sites to attract customers and sell their “products” in this case sex slaves, but also they force their slaves to perform in pornography as another source of income. So, what you may think is a paid 19 year old actress could easily be a 16 year child sex slave. A relatively tiny percentage or zero (hence the term, sex slavery) of the money doesn’t enter the pockets of the actors, but of the slave holders or millionaire investors.

Additionally, like a dirty kitchen, the porn industry provides hiding places for hungry sex slave holders as well as for investors in child porn. A website that advertises itself as “college girls only” could very easily harbor child pornography. If a businessperson invested in the fiscal rewards of child pornography pays this hypothetical “college girls website” enough cash-flow to provide an access point to the child porn (think of how one rents an office space), the underage porn is easily accessed as well as camouflaged by the legal pornography.

Michelle Lillie explains in her article, The Connection Between Sex Trafficking and Pornography, “Traffickers can sell sexual photos of the women in addition to forcing them into prostitution at a great financial gain and the younger the girls, the more expensive the photos, making the underground child pornography industry one of the most lucrative markets for sex traffickers. Since most transactions between the traffickers and buyers take place online, traffickers also use the photos and films of the girls to attract more clients.”

It is not the porn itself that hurts us as much as the industry. With the undertaking of a porn industry boycott, what would we do about sex? How would we know what to do? Well, I guess we would do whatever we want, without a director telling us how to pose.
