Running head: PORNOGRAPHY1PornographyAmanda PerryLiberty University
PORNOGRAPHY2AbstractPornography is rampant in today’s society. People everywhere are affected by it and exposed to it to a certain degree. With the exposure to pornography occurring at a younger age, there is a shifting view towards sexuality and sexual intercourse that has been tainted and skewed through its influence. Inappropriate sexual behavior and thoughts are often influenced through the integration of pornography and images that we view on television and the internet. Although pornography is still considered taboo by most cultures, it is typically something that is still viewed in secret by the same people who condemn or deny it. It is, however, more accepted in the sense that more couples are watching pornography together, more people see it as harmless because it does not involve contact with another person, or it is just a part of a man’s normal routine and is to be expected to be accessed. Pornography also carries some dark consequences, on the other hand, and can snowball wildly out of control for the person consuming it, and is responsible for the wreckage of many relationships and marriages across this country. This paperwill cover the dark side of pornography, how it can develop into an addiction, and what people can do to overcome the bondage of it.

However, the main existing medium used today to access pornography is the world wide web, or the internet (McGlynn, 2009). Pornography existsto arouse, entice, and inflict sexual stimulation to the viewer. Men are more likely to consume pornography, but women are viewers of it, as well.

There are over 3 million websites that are pornographic in nature on the internet today. There are also many mediums which act as support businesses to pornography, such as adult entertainment stores, escort services, and mail-order sexual aides available to order and purchase through the comfort of one’s own home. Pornography is easily accessible and readily available to anyone, anywhere (Joyce, 2017).Pornography is all encompassing for many people who view it and participate in it.
