Karate man Chuck Norris, weighs in on human trafficking and porn

A recent debate between at New York University between adult film star Ron Jeremy and Craig Gross, founder of XXXChurch.com (an online community for those seeking help out of the porn industry and pornography), examined the connections between human sex trafficking and porn.

The Christian Post reported on the debate…

Jeremy’s position was that human trafficking and porn were unrelated and that porn videos of underage girls caught in human trafficking do not exist, according to his knowledge.

However, Gross vehemently disagreed, saying such videos do exist. “There’s a lot of stuff [on] the Internet that’s not produced by the companies in LA that’s got girls underage that probably deals with potentially trafficked girls,” Gross explained. “They’re not going to touch it in their industry, but does it exist? Is it online? Yes.”

Gross also said that like a frog in the kettle, minors are slowly simmered and shaped by the sexual mindsets that perpetuate both trafficking and porn until they’re “barely legal” to be rushed into the porn industry and exploited for those with adolescent appetites.

Jeremy even confessed, “Yes, kids are a big part of it, I mean 18 or over, 19 or over. There’s a series called ‘Barely Legal,’ which targets girls who are a bit young, but they’re still of legal age.”

Chuck Norris’ commentary piece on the tragic costs of America’s lustful porn obsession, details the problems as such:

According to the International Labour Organization, human trafficking, sex and otherwise, is a $9.8 billion industry in the U.S. alone, but much of the debate is whether human trafficking is directly linked to porn. For Jeremy the two or not related to one another.

Norris is quick to point out that many experts disagree with Ron Jeremy’s assertions…

According to groups like the Freedom Youth Project, an organization that fights against child sex trafficking through research, believes that “pornography is a leading cause of human trafficking for minors in the U.S.”

The Salvation army is getting involved by producing a feature documentary called “Hard Corps,” aimed at uncovering the connection between pornography and the human sex trafficking Industry. “This film proposes to uncover the façade of pornography as ‘a harmless pastime for consenting adults.’ It pulls back the curtain to reveal the ugly reality of addiction, infidelity, prostitution, child abuse, rape and Human Sex Trafficking.”

Getting addicted to porn is a dangerous thing for any man. At its most fundamental level guys should avoid porn because it destroys your social skills, confidence, motivation for sex and much more. For a professional viewpoint, Dr. Mary Layden, a sex abuse expert and psychotherapist at the University of Pennsylvania, lays out some more reasons to avoid porn addiction and porn altogether from an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald:

Layden elaborated that increased online pornography helps to “normalize pathological behavior,” raising the belief that “it is common, hurts no one, and is socially acceptable, the female body is for male entertainment, sex is not about intimacy and sex is the basis of self-esteem.” And just as with other addictions, Layden claimed, the more one consumes pornography, the more one’s appetite for it grows.

The Herald summarized Layden’s sentiments regarding the connection between porn and sex trafficking this way: “increased use of pornography leads to increased demand for prostitution. When demand outstripped supply of local prostitutes, women and children were brought in from overseas, often against their will.”

Viewing pornography causes the release of dopamine in the brain. In order to continue to receive that ‘high,’ the person must watch more and more of it. As they progress down the line, they often need to view more hardcore stuff. Sometimes, it becomes addictive and overtakes that person’s life and marriage. Pornography also objectifies sex and reduces it to mere body parts. None of this is good.”

Never underestimate the dopamine fix that porn gives you. Stop the online fantasies and go out in the world and work some game.
