Generation of Men Lost To Porn Addiction, 16 States Ring the Alarm

Our youngest children can have access to hardcore, disgusting and perverted pornography with just a click of a button. And the pornography peddlers who get away with shoving their degenerate filth into our lives have so far gotten off scot-free.

When it comes to smartphone pornography and addiction, America is in denial. Arguably, the epidemic of young men lost to porn addiction is worse than the opiate addiction and vaping health crisis combined.

Until recently, no one has wanted to address the elephant in the room. But that is changing, thanks to some brave activists who spent years ringing the alarm. And state governments are finally listening.

Professor and activist Dr. Gail Dines calls the issue a “public health emergency.” She started Culture Reframed a non-profit to teach parents how to build resilience and resistance in their children to porn.

“We have all the research we need to know– this is why it’s a public health emergency. This is now the first of boys we have brought up with access to hardcore porn. We have never done that before,” she said.
“These boys are about to become men. So my question is what kind of fathers, partners, lawyers, doctors, priests, teachers, coaches are they going to become?”

Dr. Dines says society needs a collective response. ” …mainstream hardcore porn is free. It’s accessible. It’s anonymous. And, of course, it’s affordable because it’s free.” She says the three factors drive demand.

“Free porn is the equivalent of me handling out free cigarettes outside a middle school. I would not be allowed to go outside a middle school and just hand out cigarettes every single day to make sure I got them hooked onto cigarettes nor would I be allowed to knock on people’s doors and say, “Excuse me, you have somebody under 18 her, or under 21? Here’s some beer. By the way, I’ll be back tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that.” [CBS 11 News]

During the last three years, billions has been spent combating America's opiate addiction, and thanks to President Trump's efforts, the tide has finally started to turn. Now, American patriots must again call on President Trump to launch a massive battle against internet pornography.

Our youngest children can have access to hardcore, disgusting and perverted pornography with just a click of a button. And the pornography peddlers who get away with shoving their degenerate filth into our lives have so far gotten off scot-free. We wouldn't let a six-year old buy hard liquor without showing an I.D. So why shouldn't our government place hardcore pornography far away from the curious eyes of America's youth?

Sixteen states have taken the first step in this fight by declaring pornography addiction a public health epidemic.

For Todd Weiler, it started with a noisy constituent. The state senator in Utah, a Republican, was getting frequent calls from a local dentist who wanted to know what he was going to do about pornography. “I’m a lawyer," Weiler recalls telling her. "I understand the First Amendment, so I was telling her a lot of, ‘We can’t do that, we can’t do that.'"

Still, Weiler was able to get a resolution passed in 2016 declaring pornography a public health crisis. Since Utah’s first-in-the-nation resolution, the idea has picked up considerable steam: 15 other states have passed identical or near-identical resolutions.

Weiler says he changed his tune when the National Center on Sexual Exploitation approached him with the idea. “They told me," he recalls, "‘If you can pass this, we can get this passed in 15 more states. We just need one legislator to stick his neck out.'”

Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and Virginia have all passed their public health resolutions in the past two years. [Governing Magazine]

Addiction to pornography contributes to declining sperm counts, sex lives, and most shockingly, it destroys the ability of a man to create a lasting relationship with a woman. No wonder birth rates among American citizens are plummeting.

Gabe Deem calls it an addiction comparable to drugs or alcohol. He says it is so strong he eventually craved a screen or pixels not people.

By the time he was 23-years-old, he says he suffered from physical side effects including erectile disfunction. He says he could not maintain a healthy relationship.

Deem also says it cause social and mental problems. “You see an increase in social anxiety, poor working memory and brain fog, so that started happening to me.”

Scared he’d never be the same, Deem turned to internet forums where he discovered he was not alone. He found other addicts talking about anxiety, depression, poor academic performance, unhealthy relationships, and even suicide. [CBS 11 News]

If you're struggling with pornography addiction, you're not alone. Millions are struggling, and this silent epidemic is about to go mainstream. Let's pray for our political leaders to fight this problem head on. Thousands or even millions of men have overcome this problem. There is hope:

For 25 years, Randy Spears (real name Gregory Patrick) was the most successful male porn star of all time, but he became plagued by shame, guilt, drugs, alcohol, and depression. One day, Randy cried out to God in desperation....and He saved him!
