Pornography is more than a word to describe sexually explicit images. It's an activity related to sexual choices! Porn is the chosen entertainment of those who enjoy being ‘turned on by sex' so much they can’t get enough of it. Sex becomes an obsession. Even if they wanted to change many find that, no matter how much they think they won’t do certain things any more, they're soon at it again! Whether it’s frequenting places where sexual activity is available, or giving in again to X-rated internet sites, they can't resist the urge.
For some it becomes very painful! While the sexual thrills are exciting, their conscience is troubled; they feel ashamed, even dirty. Those who try keeping this part of their life hidden from others, especially family and friends, soon feel they are terrible hypocrites. For them, pornography has become a snare which has cruelly trapped them. Many who provide pornographic services also come to ruin, usually through depression and drugs.
Involvement with porn has wrecked careers and destroyed marriages. It's definitely not 'harmless entertainment', even if it were restricted to consenting adults. Sadly, that’s not the case! Many are trafficked into it as children and their lives can be ruined forever.
