Isn’t porn normal in today’s culture?

If “normal” means used by almost everyone, the answer would be yes. However, if “normal” means “okay because everybody does it,” my answer is no. Yes, it is common, and becoming more common every day. I’ve heard young people say they don’t have one single friend (including female friends) who don’t use pornography. And I’ve seen porn-use statistics as high as 80% to 100% among the teens and young adult males. It permeates society in the digital age. However, I would rather tell you why some young people are leaving porn behind.

A quick Google search will provide numerous articles, talks, or studies that are showing the impact porn use has on those who use it. Ted.com has several. My favorite there is titled, The Great Porn Experiment, and can be found at the link below. There are many others, but I’ll only include one more here. It’s from a Psychology Today online article, and is the second link below.

There are lots of good reasons to avoid or beat porn. All it takes is a little looking to find dozens of reasons to be concerned if the man you love is using it.
