Full transcript

A porn video filmed in a public library? A 19-year-old girl was recently featured in a pornographic video filmed in a public library during business hours, just steps away from children.

But it gets a lot worse, because pornography isn't just infiltrating our communities, it's invading our homes. In a 2018 study reported by Psychology Today, researchers found that 98% of men surveyed, and 73% of women had viewed Internet porn in the previous six months. And according to the website, an estimated 90% of children ages 8-16 have viewed porn online.

It's time that we do something about it.

Key messages
• Pornography is not "adult entertainment," it's not empowering to women, and it certainly is not harmless titillation. It's voyeurism, it's degrading to women, and it is doing immense harm to men and women, to marriages, to ministries, to children, and to society.
• In a recent study, 98% of men surveyed, and 73% of women, had viewed internet pornography in the previous 6 months. And an estimated 90% of children ages 8-16 have viewed porn online.
• Pornography is a widespread epidemic. We shouldn't be ashamed to talk about it. We should only be ashamed if we don't do something about it.
