“Education expert Jonathan Doyle argues in a new online post that pornography has a powerful relationship with low self-esteem.
Doyle, who has delivered live seminars to over a quarter of a million people is the founder of a new website called Stopusingpornography.com which provides paid online programs and free articles on porn addiction and how to get help for porn addiction.
He states, “In all the years I have delivered live seminars on the topic of porn addiction I have never had someone come up to me and tell me how wonderful pornography has been for them and how much it has helped their relationships. What we do find is a trail of personal pain and damaged capacity for genuine intimacy.”
“A shocking number of children have been arrested in connection with sex crimes in the North, with experts blaming online pornography.
In some cases those arrested were as young as six, a Sunday Sun investigation has revealed.
Our probe shows how almost 500 children aged 17 and under were arrested for sexual offences according to police data, 20% of which were formal investigations into reports of rape.
Of those arrested, more than 140 were 13 or younger – with 40 of those being on suspicion of rape.”
“When it comes to pornography, there are no true believers. That’s because — outside of grotesque self-deception — it’s not possible for a man who has made vows of fidelity to a woman and vows of protection for his children to consume pornography and say it was a right and good thing to do. No one would dare mouth such words. It would be a lie and it would make him a coward. Those who produce, distribute and consume pornography cannot stand up straight, look you in the eye and tell you they feel good about their self-medicating contribution to society.
And yet we protect the devil’s own cesspool on grounds of free speech and tolerance. With dripping intellectual pretension, we teach the next generation that erotica is a legitimate literary genre. We are, as the founding president of Stanford University David Starr Jordan once said, “shirking the bonds of love for the irresponsible joys of lust.”
“Little ones are seeing inappropriate films and video games while staying up late or being in the same room as other siblings. We are noticing a much more explicit vocabulary emerging and types of games among the very young that are quite sexually explicit.”
Niamh Sweeney, a teacher in Cambridgeshire, singled out the book Fifty Shades of Grey for “normalising” violent relationships. She said: “It is not erotic fiction, it describes a violent and abusive relationship.”
A rising tide of pornography is engulfing children from the age of eight on the internet, a teachers’ conference heard today.
“For many young people, pornography now precedes sex and many will have seen hundreds of strangers having sex before they have any sexual contact with another person,” Helen Porter, from St Gabriel’s school in Newbury, Berkshire, told the Association of Teachers and Lecturers conference in Liverpool.
Delegates demanded that teachers should receive specialist training in how to deliver lessons warning of the dangers of pornography as a result.”
