Shocking Footage of Women Abused in the Porn Industry

Derek Ouellette —  December 12, 2011 — 3 Comments

There’s a video that someone shared on Facebook that is so important to see, in my opinion, especially for men. But although it is a YouTube video, I felt it’s content was too explicit to simply share it on my wall. I’m posting it here and suggesting the viewer to use discretion.

Addiction to porn is a real problem for many, and yes, for many in the church. One report said that over half of evangelical pastors admitted to visiting a porn site one year and more than 70% of men between the ages of 18-34 will visit a porn site at least once a month. 28% of the overall number of those who admit to sexual addiction are women while 34% of female readers of Christianity Today online filled out a survey in which they admitted to intentionally accessing a porn website.

I think porn is a powerful and binding drug on people who otherwise have strong convictions in other areas of their lives. This is why it usually comes as a shock when someone who seems so straight laced is discovered deep in the pit of sexual addiction resulting in the destruction of their marriage.

And that’s what makes this video so important and necessary to watch. Individuals often watch porn to enter a fantasy. But exposing the abuse behind the camera will show that their fantasy is actually no fantasy at all. Maybe next time someone is tempted to watch a porno, they’ll see the woman involved as a victim of abuse rather than a sexually gratifying tool. (If you can’t see the youtube video below, click here.)

Here’s a resource to help people guard against the danger of online temptation.

    Thanks for posting this, Derek. With all due respect, I don’t think a public crusade against the porn industry will be effective. There is just too much money involved! That’s not to say people shouldn’t be informed, police shouldn’t crack down on porn makers, etc. But, the market is so huge and insatiable I don’t see how it can be stopped. It’s like trying to crack down on drugs. Sure, we should. But, it’s bound to be discouraging. compare the wages of a police officer with the income of a drug dealer, and you begin to see the problem.

      Agreed Craig. But isn’t it the same with poverty? “The poor you’ll have with you always” says Jesus, and then he commands us to do something about it. I realize that a crusade against the industry will not bring the industry to a halt. But with a pastors heart my concern is not so much with the abolishment of the porn industry (of course that would be ideal), but rather with the individual who stumbles upon this article and experiences a gestalt switch in this area of their lives.

      Thanks for commenting btw, I always appreciate it.

        I just stumbled across this post, and after just recently dabbling back into porn after a 10 year addiction, that video was timely.

        Thank you so much for posting.
