Family Watch International (FWI) released a new documentary entitled “The Porn Pandemic: The Devastating Effects on Children, Family, and Society” tries to explain the consequences of viewing pornography. 

The documentary features expert opinions on how pornography hurts others and scientific evidence and personal testimonies about how addictive pornography can be.

FWI has brought many of the concerns of pornography to groups such as the United Nations, attempting to raise awareness of the troubling effects of pornography and fighting to stop pornography. 

FWI president Sharon Slater says: “Porn addictions can lead to violence against women, prostitution, trafficking in persons, and sexual crimes against women.” All this is discussed in the documentary.

Also in the video are personal stories discussing how pornography has destroyed relationships and families. Former porn addicts tell how early exposure to pornography has caused long-term damage to themselves and their families.

Slater says that children have landed in jail for acting out on pornography addictions. She tells of a 13-year-old boy convicted of rape and sexual assault on an 8-year-old girl. The boy was addicted to pornography since the age of nine. 

Slater blames the addiction for the crimes because as pornography viewing increases, the desire to act out on what you see increases as well, especially for young children.

The end of the video offers a message of hope. Former pornography addicts discuss how they’ve been able to recover and heal. They discuss the support of family members and the therapy they’ve undertaken to overcome their addictions.
