Pernicious Effects of Pornography

Pornography leaves the impression with its viewer that sex has no relationship to privacy, that it is unrelated to love, commitment or marriage, that bizarre forms of sex are the most gratifying, that sex with animals has a specially desirable flavor and that irresponsible sex has no adverse consequences — no venereal disease, illegitimate births, abortions, premature marriages, single-parent families or moral erosion.  I see no way that a torrent of material with this subliminal message, which ultimately fans out to reach people of almost all ages, can fail to have pernicious effects.
