This day in age, pornography has become more and more acceptable. Traditionally, men were the ones that would more regularly view pornography; therefore, women were the ones exposing their bodies. While the scale still falls to this side, it has begun to balance out in recent years, so that pornography is no longer simply men viewing women. In fact, homosexual pornography and child pornography are all on the rise.
A few statistics for you, just to put things into perspective: “90 percent of the 16-year-olds, according to the latest statistics, had viewed pornography. And 80 percent of 15- to 17-year-olds had had exposure to hardcore pornography. In a recent study, teenagers were asked if pornography was acceptable, and 67 percent of the men and 59 percent of the women said ‘yes.’ For 47 percent of Christian families, pornography is a major problem. Association of Divorce Lawyers came out and said that over 50 percent of divorces were directly related to pornography.” (www.christianpost.com)
So what does it matter? It matters a great deal. Whenever one engages in their so-called acceptable form of pornography, they further the progression of all pornography. You don’t believe me? Pornography is a multi-billion dollar business. If you honestly don’t think that this money flows into current culturally unacceptable arenas, you have been deceived. Child pornography, sex-trafficking, and childhood sexual abuse are all closely intertwined with pornography at large.
