I’m not saying porn addiction isn’t a problem. We need to educate people — especially parents — about how they can limit adolescents’ exposure to porn. But we also need to teach the difference between healthy consumption versus simply labeling it all as bad or corrupt. That’s where I ultimately come down. Demonizing porn has made the problem worse. In fact, I think unhealthy attitudes and stigma toward porn have contributed just as much as its widespread availability. It’s similar to my stance on many issues; prohibition and shaming increases potential for abuse.
