    Another poster's link led me to this. We haven't had a good debate on porn lately so maybe it's time again.
    "Why porn is so destructive to men

    .......

    With enough time, and with such easy access on the Internet, a man's mind can easily spiral into the darkest depths of depravity. Eventually men will become concerned about where his appetite is leading him. No one simply started looking for lonely female victims on their way to the store to buy milk. No one just woke up one day and decided to gang rape young children.
    Counseling a man addicted to porn is one of the hardest endeavors in therapy. There are no easy solutions. Men often find it impossible to be aroused by their wives no matter how great their love of them. I know a pastor who, prior to committing his life to Christ, participated in orgies and wife-swapping which ruined his marriage. After he divorced, he made every effort to turn his life around, he became a pastor and met a wonderful woman that he loved very much, but was devastated when he could not consummate the marriage on his wedding night. God's most sacred gift, the joining of a man to a woman, had been abused and perverted for so many years with so many women that it wasn't special with his new bride. It wasn't sacred. It was reduced to an animal act that demanded the thrill of perversion, and he wept."

    Porn itself won't make you go blind, but the acton that goes along with it will.

    "In the meantime, stay away from pornography. It may be legal, but it will soil your soul. Though it seems harmless, it can seriously suck you in, lead you down dark roads, ruin your life and relationships with those you love. I wish you could hear the cracked voices and sobs of strong men that I've heard. Pornography is nothing to play with. Ask anyone who has ever tried to quit.

    A man's only hope of recovery is in Christ, but that requires extreme patience and time. The only way to break the stronghold of pornography addiction is to strangle it, stop feeding it and eventually it will die. Lift up your head and focus on God. It will be very hard at first, but hang on to Him, turn your time and energy toward God, He has always been there to help you through it."

    I think we can safely assume this author is ok with porn for women. :lol:

    Porn will make you go blind if it is printed on a transparency and held up to the sun while viewing.
