The Porn Pandemic: The Devastating Effects on Children, Family and Society


The Porn Pandemic presents scientific evidence, expert commentary, and personal testimonies showing the addictive nature of pornography and how pornography addictions can lead to violence against women, prostitution, trafficking in persons, and sexual crimes against women and children.

As former pornography addicts and their family members tell their stories, we also learn how early exposure to pornography can lead to a long-term debilitating addiction that devastates marriage and family relationships and can lead to acting out in unhealthy ways.

While many people who view pornography do not become seriously addicted to the point of committing sexual crimes, conversely, the majority of people who commit serious sexual crimes against women and children, have usually been viewing pornography.

Our documentary features world-renowned neurosurgeon and brain expert Dr. Donald Hilton on how pornography viewing can actually change the brain in harmful ways and how pornography addictions escalate in the same way as hard drug addictions.

In our brave new digital world, young children who have access to technology are being exposed to pornography, whether intentionally or unintentionally, and their immature brains, which are not fully developed until their early 20s, are not equipped to handle these images.

It only takes a fraction of a second for explicit images to be permanently imprinted on the brain, and the majority of these images give an unrealistic and distorted view of sex, most often depicting the demeaning of women and violence against them.

Some of the adult addicts in recovery we interview in our documentary report accidentally coming across pornography at age 7, 9, and 11 and becoming so addicted that it destroyed their lives. Some of these people reported not being able to control their viewing, regardless of the consequences to them or their families.

The more people understand the inextricable link between pornography, sexual crimes, prostitution and trafficking and the devastating impact of pornography on the brain, the better able we will be to organize governments to stamp out this scourge that is destroying our families and thus society.
