Every day we get calls from people who have been charged with sexual offenses such as Public Indecency, Unlawful Sexual Contact, Sexual Assault, and Indecent Exposure in Denver, Arapahoe, and Jefferson County. There has been a definite increase in the occurrence of these crimes. I believe the increase is directly related to the usage of pornography in our culture.

Pornography Acts Like a Drug

When a person views pornography, there is a chemical release of drugs which produces a high. This is similar to the way drugs, such as cocaine, work on the brain. With habitual use, pornography use tends to skew the mind – in this fictional mindset, the person viewing the pornography is all-powerful. People exist only to serve their fantasy. And, the problem with pornography is that usage always escalates – the content must get more intense and more violent the more it is watched. One study on the effects of pornography stated that “males who were high in hostile masculinity and sexual promiscuity and who used pornography frequently were significantly more likely to have physically and sexually aggressed than males who were low in these factors.” Pornography is harmful to everyone.

Porn Consumption Linked to Commission of Sex Offenses

In our culture, people tend to think that porn is harmless. Nothing could be further from the truth. One study showed that adult sex offenders “showed a high rate of using hard-corn pornography.” And, while the content they consumed affected their actions, the frequency of use also had an effect. The same study states the “more frequently men used pornography and the more violent the pornography they used, the more likely they were to coerce others into sex, include the use of physical coercion.”
