Pornography impedes love, intimacy, respect, and connection. Yet many continue to defend it.
We know porn consumption harms children. But is it fine, as a New Zealand PSA implies, if it is watched only by adults who understand the acts they see on film are “not real”?

The porn industry drives prostitution, which means critics of pornography cannot challenge one without challenging the other.
Either men’s sadism is innate, or it’s learned, and if it’s learned, we can do something about it.

If elected officials are participating in sexual abuse, we shouldn’t be joking about it.
