The dangerous psychological effects of Pornography

Recent studies confirm that porno scenes have destructive consequences on human’s psychological health also it has bad effects on people’s social status,

Let us read …


Debate over the issue of pornography often starts with the assumption that it is harmful. In fact the US Attorney General's Commission on Pornography, the Surgeon General's workshop on Pornography, Public Health and many academic researchesdetermined that pornography is harmful.

Sex issues are in chatting rooms

In a new study, American researchers believe that growing numbers of married people are turning to internet chat rooms for sexual thrills.

Most spouses who got involved with the opposite sex over the internet did not think they were doing anything wrong, said the report by a University of Florida researcher.But partners felt betrayed even though in most cases no physical contact had taken place.

"The internet will soon become the most common form of infidelity, if it isn't already," said Beatriz Mileham, from the University of Florida, who carried out the new study.

According to counseling groups in the US, Chat rooms are today the fastest rising cause of relationship breakdowns.

“The problem would get worse as the number of people online continued to rise” said MsMileham.

                

"All I have to do is turn on my computer and I have thousands of women to choose from," said one of the men questioned for the study.

 "It can't get any easier than that." He added

Researchers found that most people ventured into the chat rooms because of boredom, a partner's lack of sexual interest, or a desire for variety and fun.

The study found that what often started out as just friendly chat turned into something much more serious.

"We are hearing from therapists around the country reporting online sexual activity to be a major cause of marital problems," said Al Cooper, author of the book, Sex and the Internet: A Guidebook for Clinicians.

"We need to better understand the contributing factors if we are going to be able to warn people about the slippery slope that starts with online flirting and too often ends in divorce. “Added AL cooper.

Romantic Films

Watching romantic comedies can spoil our love life, a study by a university in Edinburgh has claimed.

Rom-coms have been blamed by relationship experts at Heriot Watt University for promoting unrealistic expectations when it comes to love.

Many held the view if someone is meant to be with you, and then they should know what you want without you telling them.

Psychologists at the family and personal relationships laboratory at the university studied 40 top box office hits between 1995 and 2005, and identified common themes which they believed were unrealistic.

The university's Dr Bjarne Holmes said: "Marriage counselors often see couples who believe that sex should always be perfect, and if someone is meant to be with you then they will know what you want without you needing to communicate it.”

"We now have some emerging evidence that suggests popular media play a role in perpetuating these ideas in people's minds.” He added.

Also he says: “The problem is that while most of us know that the idea of a perfect relationship is unrealistic, some of us are still more influenced by media portrayals than we realize."

 

There are many evidences suggeststhat popular media play a role in perpetuating wrong ideas in people's minds

Kimberly Johnson, who also worked on the study, said: "Films do capture the excitement of new relationships but they also wrongly suggest that trust and committed love exist from the moment people meet, whereas these are qualities that normally take years to develop".

Pornography war and teenagers

The Internet and cable television have ushered in an age of unprecedented access to hard-core pornographic images, and teenagers are one of the many victims. Numerous studies have pointed to the serious harm of pornography on teenager as it has a severe negative effect on them.

In 1999, two researchers (Benedek and Brown) noted several negative effects of pornography on young people. These included modeling and imitation of inappropriate behaviors; unhealthy interference with normal sexual development; emotional side effects (including nightmares and residual feelings of shame, guilt, anxiety, and confusion); stimulation of premature sexual activity; and the development of misleading and potentially harmful attitudes toward sex.

They believe that Pornography can create a powerful biochemical “rush” in the user. When a teenager is subjected to an arousing image, the adrenal gland secretes epinephrine into the bloodstream, where it proceeds to the brain and locks the image in. Once this has occurred, the simple thought of the image can trigger a feeling of arousal.

 

 When a teenager is subjected to an arousing image, the adrenal gland secretes epinephrine into the bloodstream, where it proceeds to the brain and locks the image in.

Many adults can still vividly recall the first pornographic image to which they were exposed as a child or teenager. Other body chemicals, such as serotonin, adrenaline, endorphins, and dopamine also are at play, creating a euphoric state in the user. Teens who experience this biochemical thrill will, not surprisingly, want to experience it again.

Pornography and depression

An Australian study of American and Australian men found that 27% of internet sex fiends suffer from depression, 30% from anxiety, and 35% from stress.

 

Pornography leads people to be depressed

In ameeting presentedin Australia finds a link between clinical depression and an online sex life. 1,325 men from the US and Australia were surveyed about their Internet sex habits, which might include trolling for porn, participating in online chats, or doing things with webcams. They were also asked questions designed to elucidate the respondents' state of mental health with regards to depression.

A significant percentage (27 percent) of those surveyed displayed moderate to severe depression, with similar numbers suffering from anxiety (30 percent) and stress (35 percent). Marcus Squirrell, a PhD student at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, and the author of the study, found a correlation between the severity of depression and the amount of time spent engaged in online sexual activity.

Pornography and children

Today, Children are exposed to sexual material on television at earlier ages. Even television shows, supposedly for children, make references to sex. The references may seem harmless to an adult, but a child does not understand what is on television is not real (depending on their age). Even if they do, they may think that behavior is appropriate even for them.

 

Parents need to take caution. Make sure that computers, DVD players, and televisions have parental controls to protect children from seeing something they should not.

A 2009 study showed, that "the fourth most sought search term among" children seven and under, was "porn." Seven and under, searching for network sites and porn!

The study, written in a report by Brittany Glynn ( BreakingFreeBlog, "The Unfiltered Truth: Children Search for Pornography From an Early Age," 2010), indicates that young girls feel "pressured" to have "waxings" and "surgeries" so they look better naked. Boys "desire" to do what they see featured in pornography (keep in mind these are children who are as young as seven).

A more recent study, reported October 6, 2010, shows that 11-year-old boys are being exposed to pornography, and think they have to do what they see in the images in order to get "aroused" (Professor Dines, online article "Increasingly Violent Porn 'Hijacking' our Sexuality," abc.net.au, October 6, 2010).

In another study of six hundred American males and females of junior high school age and above, researcher Dr. Jennings Bryant, head of the radio-television school of communication at the University of Houston found that 91 percent of the males and 82 percent of the females admitted having been exposed to X-rated, hard-core pornography. Over 66 percent of the males and 40 percent of the females reported wanting to try out some of the sexual behaviors they had witnessed. And among high schoolers, 31 percent of the males and 18 percent of the females admitted actually doing some of the things they had seen in the pornography within a few days after exposure.

 

Exposure to Pornography Threatens to Make ChildrenVictims of Sexual Violence

Also he added that exposure to so-called "soft" pornography (that which is found on the covers of magazines in many stores) has greater effects than most people realize. He states: "We're finding proof that this (less violent) stuff is doing harm, and something has to be done about it."

Researchers found that Children often imitate what they've seen, read, or heard. Studies suggest that exposure to pornography can prompt kids to act out sexually against younger, smaller, and more vulnerable children. Experts in the field of childhood sexual abuse report that any premature sexual activity in children always suggests two possible stimulants: experience and exposure. This means that the sexually deviant child may have been molested or simply exposed to sexuality through pornography.

Porn is the theoryand rape is the practice

The Campaign against Pornography and Censorship (CPC) who asserted that pornography should be "eliminated through correct information, education, persuasion, legislation and lawful direct action on the grounds that it harms women", to those who oppose the right of the state to interfere in the bedroom or determine what you can put on your DVD player.

The CPC's view of pornography was summarized by its policy statement:

"We believe that pornography is the most extreme portrayal of women as less than human and less than equal. . . We believe therefore that pornography is propaganda against women which perpetuates sexism, sex discrimination and sexual violence."

The theory of the North American radical feminist Andrea Dworkin based on the previous thought. She argued that pornography is the key means for the perpetuation of male power, of the oppression of all women by all men.

She claimed that pornography is not merely the depiction of violence against women, it is violence against women.

 

Andrea Rita Dworkin was an American radical feminist and writer best known for her criticism of pornography, which she argued was linked to rape and other forms of violence against women.

Andrea claim that most porn is about the raping, mutilating and even murder of women. From this they conclude that pornography is a direct incitement to men to perform such atrocities against women -"'porn is the theory, rape the practice", as Andrea’s slogan.

Many people believe that pornography reduces raping, but we believe that more future researches will prove that all of these claims are totally wrong.

Raise of pornography

Western observers believe that Porn parodies are getting bigger, harder and longer, with no sign of stopping. Adult movie studios are currently obsessed with doing the dirty version of every Hollywood blockbuster that hits the big screen.

The latest figures concerning the pornography industry illustrate that:

               The business has grown to a $97 billion business worldwide; 13 billion is in the United States.

               Internet pornography in the United States is a $3 billion industry

               Every second, $3,075.64 is being spent on pornography, 28,258 Internet viewers are viewing pornography, 372 Internet users are typing adult search terms into search engines, and every 39 minutes, a new pornographic video is made in the United States. (Internet Filter Review, 2006)

               Seven out of 10 youth have accidentally come across pornography online.

               Nearly 80% of unwanted exposure to pornography is taking place in the home (79% occurs in the home; 9% occurs at school; 7% other/unknown; 5% friend’s home).

               Kids experienced unwanted exposure to sexual material via:

1               40% link came up as a result of an innocent word search.

2               17% clicked on a link in another site

3               14% pop-up

4               13% other

5               12% misspelled web address

6               4% don’t know

 

Latest statistics illustrate that Men admitting to accessing pornography at work is about 20% of work force and the US adults who regularly visit Internet pornography websites are about 40 millionadult, also Christians who said pornography is a major problem in the home is 47%

In the October 2010 issue of the American Family Association Journal, Rusty Benson presents an article entitled, "The Forgotten Front: Why Few are willing to Fight this Battle." that contains the following figures:

The problem is not limited to men, women are also facing the same issue as the statistics say that: 13% of Women admit to accessing pornography at work and 70% of women keep their cyber activities secret.

Also they found that 1 of 3 visitors to all adult web sites are women and that 9.4 million women access adult web sites each month.

Islam and pornography

Allah Almighty wanted through this religion not to let people to lose their way and not to waste their valuable time that to be in the right way by not to looking  to other’s private partsand ordered men not to look at women with libido.

Also He Almighty ordered us to practice the sexual relations only between wives and husbands as it is the only legitimate way between man and woman and to practice this relation only through the natural way (Genitals).

Let us go through the following verses:

Allah ordered men not to look to forbidden things by saying: (Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.){Sûrat An-Nûr-(The Light)- verse30 } and in the next verse Allah Almighty speaks to women by saying: (And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer palms of hands or one eye or dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.),).){Sûrat An-Nûr-(The Light)- verse31}.

Here, we see how Allah almighty puts us on the right way to prevent us from the psychological effects of pornography becauseHe Almighty wants to purify us which is against what the followers of the Satan wants, He Almighty says: (Allah wishes to accept your repentance, but those who follow their lusts, wish that you (believers) should deviate tremendously away from the Right Path.){Sûrat An-Nisâ’-Sûrat An-Nisâ’-verse27}.

Western societies and experts are calling people to avoidpornography,inmany verses in the Qur’an we can find that meaning but the difference is that isa Divine order 1400 years ago and these western calls are launched just couple of years ago, Allah says: (And come not near to the unlawful sexual intercourse. Verily, it is a Fahishah [i.e. anything that transgresses its limits (a great sin)], and an evil way (that leads one to Hell unless Allah forgives him){Sûrat Al-Isrâ’-(The Journey by Night- verse 32}.

Also He Almighty says: (Say (O Muhammad ): "Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from: Join not anything in worship with Him; be good and dutiful to your parents; kill not your children because of poverty - We provide sustenance for you and for them; come not near to Al-Fawahish (shameful sins, illegal sexual intercourse, etc.) whether committed openly or secretly, and kill not anyone whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause (according to Islamic law). This He has commanded you that you may understand.){Sûrat Al-An’âm-The Cattle –verse 151}

Also everyone must know that Allah Almighty is merciful and the forgiver of all sins, He says: (Say: "O 'Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.){Sûrat Az-Zumar-(The Groups –verse 53}.

At the end we should be proud by this great religion that wants us to be happy in this life and in the hereafter as He Almighty praises the believers who say: (Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the torment of the Fire!){Sûrat Al-Baqarah - The Cow -verse201} also He Almighty says about the situation of believers in this life and in the hereafter: (No doubt! Verily, the Auliya' of Allah [i.e. those who believe in the Oneness of Allah and fear Allah much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which he has forbidden), and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)], no fear shall come upon them nor shall they grieve *Those who believed (in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism), and used to fear Allah much (by abstaining from evil deeds and sins and by doing righteous deeds)*For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present world, and in the Hereafter. No change can there be in the Words of Allah, this is indeed the supreme success.){Sûrat Yûnus-Jonah –verse62-64}
