Today, people in any place can access porn videos and other porn related materials easily through the internet. Mostly the teenagers has been found to be surfing mostly the porn sites in the first world countries. People are engaged in producing and consuming the pornographic materials in a regular basis. In this article, I will discuss the negative aspects of porn in the modern world.
The main group that has been directly affected by pornography are teenagers. Although porn sites require 18+ years of legal age to watch porn but there is no any system established to monitor either the viewer is of legal age or not. Anyone of any age can access to porn sites whenever and where ever he wants. So the young children exposed to porn have become porn addicted. Their sexual behavior can be noticed from an early age. Most of the times they spend surfing through the porn sites which has decreased their creativity and made them addicted to it in such a way that they are unable to engage themselves in any other creative works.
The increment of sexual frustration in the teenagers has resulted to rapes, unsafe sexual intercourse in the early ages and so on. This is the cause why the number of teenage moms are increasing day by day in the developed countries. It has also helped to increase the rape cases, sexual harrasments and many other sexual related crimes.
Porn Contributes to Social and Psychological Problems Within MenYoung men who become addicted to porn, “neglect their schoolwork, spend huge amounts of money they don’t have, become isolated from others, and often suffer depression.

view women as objects rather than to be in relationships with women as
human beings.’ Pornography gives men the false

relatoinships. In other words, pornography is inherently
self-centered–something a man does by himself, for himself–by using
another women as the means to pleasure, as yet another product to
Again, it needs to be emphasized, that this is not an effect that only rests upon those who have viewed porn. The massive consumption of porn and the the size of the porn industry has hypersexualized the entire culture. Men and women are born into a pornified culture, and women are the biggest losers.
- By inundating girls and women with the message that their most
worthy attribute is their sexual hotness and crowding out other
messages, pop culture is grooming them just like an individual
perpetrator would. It is slowly chipping away at their self-esteem,
stripping them of a sense of themselves as whole human beings, and
providing them with an identity that emphasizes sex and de-emphasizes
every other human attribute.
It makes real sex and even the real world boring in comparison. It particularly anesthetizes the emotional life of a man.Pornography leaves men desensitivzed to both outrage and to excitement, leading to an overall diminishment of feeling and eventually to dissatisfaction with the emotional tugs of everyday life…Eventually they are left with a confusing mix of supersized expectations about sex and numbed emotions about women…When a man gets bored with pornography, both his fantasy and real worlds become imbued with indifference.
