You’ve heard from the pro-kink side. Now, in the anti-porn corner: Here’s what national anti-smut activists educated the public about on a recent trip to Washington, covering everything from porn addicts who can’t make job interviews because they’re too busy “surfing” porn to bestiality sites featuring “any animal on Noah’s ark”:

“How Addiction Harms the Person,” with Mary Anne Layden (above): “I once had a patient that we will call John. He told me that he had a fantasy about a career that would be ideal for him. He spent a significant amount of time preparing himself for this career, training, looking for career opportunities, making contacts and applying for jobs. Then one day he came to the therapy session with the exciting news that he had an appointment for a job interview that was the dream job. This was the big chance that he had worked so hard for. John didn’t go to that appointment because the morning of the interview John could not get himself to stop surfing Internet pornography sites.”

“Pornography Harms Children,” with Sharon Cooper: “[Consumers] who first look at adult pornography . . . then begin that slippery slope of searching for adolescent images called ‘barely legal,’ and finally begin to download child pornography.”

“Pornography Debases Men, Women, and Children,” with Gail Dines: “If you go to Gagfactor.com, you’ll see a 20 second clip of a scene with a young woman they call ‘Scarlett’. . . The clip opens with ‘Scarlett’ sitting on a toilet, having a penis thrust down her throat, while the man attached to the penis pulls her head back and forward.”

“The Truth Behind the Fantasy of Porn,” with Shelley Lubben: “The last thing I want to do, people, is talk about porn,” insisted Lubben, an anti-pornography activist who lists “ex porn star” among the qualifications on her hot-pink business card. But talk she did: “I have been hit, spit on, penetrated everywhere you can imagine, told to sit still or pose still while every orifice of my body and hands are engaging five to six male performers. I’ve been totally humiliated on the set, where they had to stop the scene when I didn’t even know what was going on, and they had to wipe up feces.”

“Childrens’ Easy Access to Hardcore Internet Pornography,” with Donna Rice Hughes: “We are indeed facing a national crisis that is every bit as damaging to our citizens and our cultural environment as the oil spill catastrophe is to the environment in the Gulf,” says Hughes. Online, children can be exposed to “explicit urination pornography with women being treated as toilets,” a “hard-core porn site” featuring “graphic close-ups of homosexual acts,” and “men and women engaging in sex acts with any animal on Noah’s ark,” all through a faulty Google search.
