Pornography - Mainstream Pornography Too Accessible

Feb 2017 update:Click ACT NOW to see what you can do on Parliament'sstudy of violent online pornography's impact

Today’s mainstream pornography depicts violent, abusive and degrading sexual activity. It is easily accessible and widely used. Viewing pornography can lead to compulsive behaviour and addiction. And it fuels other forms of sexual exploitation, such as prostitution and human trafficking.

Pornography promotes a distorted sexuality devoid of love, respect, genuine intimacy or self-giving. It teaches that people are products to be used and consumed and fosters sexual entitlement and selfishness.
