These Statistics Are Just Plain Sad

Porn is a $57 billion market worldwide with $12 billion of that coming from the U.S. That’s bigger than ABC, NBC and CBS combined, Cramer said.

In addition, 19% of Web traffic and 25% of Web searches are pornography-related, he said, and 40 million people in the U.S. regularly visit pornography Web sites.

Pornography has been a big driver of video-on-demand, and a U.K. survey found 25% of broadband Internet users there listed downloading pornography as a reason for upgrading to broadband.

This info came from http://www.thestreet.com.

I don’t know what the present statistics are on how many Christians are a part of this problem, and it is a problem, but last I knew it was way way too many. This information implies that those statistics are perhaps growing. It represents the exploitation of the vulnerable, degradation of the importance of the sanctity of marriage and of women in general.

  1. The internet, although a blessing in many ways, has made pornography so much more accessible, so much more anonymous, so much easier to feed the addiction. I do believe it is a growing trend. It is so sad, really, and I don’t know what the solution is. People who are weak in this area simply must be stronger. They have no idea how much their little “personal time” hurts the women around them.

  2. Keely, there is so much wisdom in that last comment: “They have no idea how much their little “personal time” hurts the women around them”.

    That completely sums what is so wrong about p0rn, and the related sex businesses.

    The opportunities of the internet have simply opened the door to the inward waywardness of humans… from this problem to the increase of computer crimes, etc.

    Sometimes things don’t have ‘solutions’ so much as ‘containment’ – I think p0rnography is one of those that need “containment”. Like the aftermath of a hurricane or an earthquake- you just look to save individuals from the ruination of the devastation, …and attempt to keep them out of harms way. The analogy points up how hard that effort can be, people just don’t want to face the problem and do what is necessary.
