The 3 Biggest Things Keeping Porn Alive

There are primarily three issues, actually three things people are doing, that keep pornography present in pop culture all around the world. These are the problems we have to tackle in our modern day.

1) People Bringing Attention to Their Bodies

The members of today’s society are extremely conscious concerning their bodies as well as those of others. They desire to attract attention to their bodies in the hopes of finding love. But in doing this, people are treating their bodies as mere objects and wounding their personal dignity.

Many people present themselves in public in revealing or extremely scanty clothes, if you can call them clothes at all. This is an issue which has come to light recently in a popular article written by an observant college student. In a brief and to the point article, “To Girls Wearing ‘Cheeky’ Bathing Suit Bottoms, Please Stop” from The Odyssey Online, Kayla Ratajczak states exactly the truth:

“Have bathing suit companies forgotten that often times, women are around young children… when sporting a bathing suit? More importantly, what does it teach the younger generation who see women wearing these types of bathing suits? It surely doesn’t teach them about having self-respect or dignity in themselves.”

Kayla Ratajczak hit the nail on the head and has gotten a lot of flack for it because many do not want to hear the truth. The future generation from a very impressionable age will start to mimic the behaviors they see all around them. Wearing next to nothing is bad enough, but posing naked for pornography is worse still. It is people that promote and advertise trends such as these that continue to injure dignity and purity.

2) The So-Called Artists

It is the artists, photographers, cinematographers, video game designers, and the like who promote nudity and graphic sexuality in their work that keep producing the filthy material which gets people addicted. In fact, being a photographer myself, I have discovered that the majority of photography contests include sections for nudes.

It is extremely sad and disturbing that so many companies and the culture, in general, promotes this. And one of the prime reasons they continue to produce such content is because it SELLS. And this fact is even more disheartening. Art, film, and photography are meant to move your soul not to just gratify your senses.

3) The Consumers

In a culture which is so concerned with the here and now, with fashion, with the world, with the latest and greatest popular fad, people forget they even have souls. And the eyes have been called the “windows to the soul.” You are influenced in more ways than one by the things your senses relate to you, whether good or bad.

Why has porn persisted so long? The simplest answer: because of the consumers. When people are introduced to it at an early age when they really do not comprehend that it is wrong they will never understand why it is wrong, and therefore they will never stop looking at porn. They will be addicted to it.

It’s a weakness and an illness which plagues our modern, technological world which makes it extremely easy to view and share pornographic material. So what can you do? If you’re someone who is addicted to this stuff or find yourself coming upon suggestive imagery every so often, just do not look at it. This is easier said than done, but we have to try.

Also, if possible, report suggestive items to the media platform on which it is located; it might go against their code of conduct. Do not give in to porn. By all means, never buy it! And perhaps ponder whether what you’re wearing in public is modest. Think about what or, more appropriately, who you want people to see when you put your clothes on and leave the house each day.
