The devastating harm from pornography is becoming more evident with each passing
day. Now a website has been launched to provide ready access to credible, peer-reviewed research documenting that harm.
“Pornography Harms, http://pornharms.com, is a one-stop location for sound
research, news articles and opinion pieces demonstrating the harm from pornography,” said Patrick Trueman, creator of
The site will be of great help to researchers at all academic levels and the press and concerned public.
former chief of the U.S. Department of Justice Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, expressed strong concern for the direction of America due to the prominence of pornography in the daily lives of our citizens. “Since the advent
of the internet,
pornography has flooded homes, businesses, public libraries, and even schools. The results have been devastating to the social
and family fabric of America,”
Trueman observed that, for nearly two decades, a large segment of America's children
have had ready access to internet pornography. In the latest trend called, "sexting", children are producing and distributing cell phone child pornography. This
phenomenon may well be an outgrowth of the viewing of internet pornography over long periods of time by children resulting in diminishment of their natural
inhibitions against such activity. “Pornography, in other words, is altering minds, destroying taboos, and reordering society, Trueman said.
Trueman noted, is
now common among men, women, and even many children, bringing life-long consequences. Pornography use is a significant factor
in divorce; a contributing cause of the spread of prostitution and the sexual trafficking of adults and children.
Trueman credited a multi-disciplinary group of professionals
and concerned citizens from around the country for the research work on Pornography Harms.
“Pornography is a neglected pandemic and it will remain so
until knowledge of its destructive forces is widely understood and disseminated. The Pornography Harmswebsite is dedicated to this task of education,” Trueman said.
Groundbreaking Study Proves Abstinence Education Works
Falls, SD, USA -- A new study released today by shows that abstinence education is highly effective in reducing sexual activity
among youth. It also showed contraceptive sex ed programs to be ineffective.
The decrease is noteworthy;
the study followed students a full two years after completion of the abstinence class. One third of students showed a decrease
in sexual activity, compared with those who didn't participate in the class. Whereas, condom-promoting programs didn't affect
youth behavior at all. Students in these programs showed no reduction in sexual activity and no increase in contraceptive
"Finally, a report that proves what those of us who have been teaching abstinence have known
for years. These programs help develop self control and self esteem, teaching kids that they do not need to fall prey the
game of Russian Roulette with condoms," said Leslee Unruh, President and Founder of the National Abstinence
Clearinghouse. "Abstinence programs show kids there are too many great things riding on their future to risk it to
STDs, pregnancy and broken hearts. Abstinence is a message our kids want to hear - this study shows youth are making healthier
choices and changing their behavior to in response to this refreshing message," Unruh said.
The study, involving black middle-school students, appears in the February 2010 Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine,
published by the American Medical Association. It was compiled and released by Drs. John and Loretta Jemmott from the University
of Pennsylvania and Dr. Geoffrey Fong from the University of Waterloo and the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research in Waterloo,
This study utilized state-of-the-art evaluation techniques, using random assignment.
