  1. Great post Luke!

    One thing I would add to the reasons you mention is that by participating in porn you are supporting an industry that is closely tied with human trafficking and all sorts of injustices done to women and children. How would the couple know if the actors on-screen are there by their own free will or if they are actually being forced to do what they are doing? Even if they are there by their own choosing, many ex porn actors and actresses have gone on record about the deplorable conditions on most porn sets.

    • @Traylor – Absolutely. There are so many injustices involved in the porn industry. It not only hurts couples in the bedroom; it hurts women around the globe.

  2. Hi Luke,

    My name is Rosanna van Straten and I write for the UC Santa Cruz campus newspaper, City on a Hill Press. I am currently writing a feature article on the effects that online Pornography has on the way we think about sex. I was wondering if you might want to talk to me about your ideas on Pornography, because judging from this article you would have some interesting things to say. Let me know as soon as you can,
    Thank you!

  3. Yes, and in addition to Traylor’s point, watching and therefore supporting porn also diminishes the actors’ dignity as human beings in general. I often think about this in connection with what many people consider acceptable degrees of sex portrayed in R or even PG-13 or PG movies. Those actors may have spouses or future spouses (or may never marry!) who should be the sole participators in their sexuality; by watching we are saying that in order for us to be entertained, or in order for a story to be told, it’s OK for them to compromise their privacy and dignity. Yikes! It’s not even like gratuitous violence in films which has its own moral problems), produced mostly by special effects.
