    People like to make a lot of excuses for porn stars and people who provide the means for porn addiction, but you are right. They put this poison out there, and many of them don't care what it does to people. However, when they speak out against it, no matter their motives, they deserve some validation. Even the ones who don't speak out should be recognized as people who have made, and many who continue to make, bad decisions. They are nevertheless, people.

    I disagree with you on one point though. Viewing porn does at least as much to other people as filming and distributing it. When you watch a video, the website gets paid by advertisers. We have all played a role in propagating porn. We've just done it anonymously. If nobody watched porn, then there would be no reason to make it. The porn stars may have a more direct link to it, but our link is no less real.

    Forgiveness is a tricky thing, and isn't always easy or quick. There are entire books written on forgiveness. I think that if concentration camp survivors can forgive the guards who tortured them and killed many of their loved ones, then maybe we should try to forgive the people, not just the women, who made porn so accessible to us when we were young.

    I'm glad to hear Pamela Anderson talk about the harm porn does. I think it would only be hypocritical if she were still marketing pornographic material. And even if she were, I'm just glad that attention has been drawn to the issue so that people will examine it more closely. In the end, I think that is really what we need. More attention on the impact of porn on society. The more attention we get, the more awareness will spread, and the more people can be saved from addiction, many before it even begins.

    I've read it and I'm not sure why they headlined it "most popular scenes." It's moreally them talking about the horrible things they endured, like literally being beaten during a scene. I honestly think it's good information all P users should read and I wouldn't consider it triggering. However they did include this.

    *READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED: We did our best to find quotes that weren’t too explicit while still preserving the extreme nature of the stories. Regardless, many may find the following accounts to be graphic, disturbing, and/or triggering.*

    The following is what I just posted on the reply section of the article about Ms. Anderson's article under the www.nofap.com. I thought I would also post it here.
    "It is my hope that Ms. Anderson is totally sincere in what she has gone on record to say. My concern is her choice of the term “loser” to use in her article (Simply put, we must educate ourselves and our children to understand that porn is for losers—a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality). I am not disagreeing with the intend of her comment, such her choice of terms. Many young men & women (age 13 and younger) who are experiencing new hormonal changes in their body and have received little or no sex ed from parents or teachers/counselors/pastors/etc.(or worse,only information from the streets through friends/etc.)innocently go to a website and are confronted with sexually explicit images which sucks them into the world of porn and M/O practically before they know what is happening to them. For them to read that they are “losers” will only increase their load of guilt over what they are doing and may cause them to become even more addicted. In my mind, at least at this stage of the game, these young people are just as much victims of the porn industry as the women/children who are used by the industry in their films./news section of the website. I thought I would also post it here."

    As I said in a previous post found above, it is my hope that Ms. Anderson is totally sincere. However, statements I found in two posts in her journal found at http://www.pamelaandersonfoundation.org/news/ raises some concerns in my mind. Perhaps I don’t don’t properly understand what she is trying to say. Below are the two quotes, I let you decide for yourself.

    “Playboy was killed by porn. Playboy to me was innocent. And I stand by my statement. We must learn to make love again. It will save us.”

    “I am in the DNA of Playboy-A centerfold, bunny, cover girl. Playboy in my opinion was titillatingly innocent-sensual-without being grossly over sexual. It was a very ‘euro’/forward thinking -a semi nude publication-that celebrated freedom in many ways –
    beliefs and boundaries-I will always proudly align myself with.”

    Now this magazine was first published the year after I was born and I didn’t start to look at it until the mid 60’s (before Ms. Anderson’s time) and I would not remotely think of using the phrase “titillatingly innocent-sensual-without being grossly over sexual” in connection with the magazine and how it became a source for my developing porn addiction. What do you think of her comments?
     
  7. She is walking the wave of changes that is taking place, probably to get rid of the guilt about being part of that system for years.
