Pornography Addiction - Did you know?

a. ...that pornography consumption can be as mood altering and as addictive as narcotics? (Richard Drake, assistant professor at Brigham Young University College of Nursing) In fact, some studies have indicated that pornography can have the same effect on the brain as cocaine. Images can be permanently "burned" into the memory by epinephrine, a chemical in the brain.

b. ...that according to Nielson Net Ratings, 17.5 million people visited porn sites in January 2000? (U.S. News & World Report, 3/27/2000)

c. ...that there are more outlets for hard-core pornography in this country than there are McDonalds restaurants?

d. ...that rape statistics are proportionately higher in those states with higher pornography sales and lower in those states with lower pornography sales?

e. ...that cyberporn sales - including videos and accessories ordered online - accounted for 8% of 1999’s $18 billion E-commerce pie? (U.S. News & World Report, 3/27/2000) That’s nearly $5.25 for every man, woman, and child in the United States!

f. ...that boys ages 12-17 are one of the largest consumers of pornography and pornographers target them for that reason? If the pornographers can arrange for the young person to become addicted, then a steady flow of income is assured. (Information received from Enough Is Enough, Morality In Media, and National Coalition For The Protection of Children and Families.)
