The Porn Invasion

234443-0705-pu0147-pusvdn-32What’s wrong with our world today?  Nowadays, pornography is becoming one of today’s prevalent issues of morality in this world.  Today, young adults, teenagers and even children as early as 2nd Grade and sometimes younger are easy to have an access with indecent or pornographic materials through print-ads, digital media, and especially the internet.  Now, everything that we could see hears are flavored with filthy and lucrative pleasures that corrupts and contaminates the real meaning of sex that should be understood as a sacred gift from God.  As time goes by, the disease “pornographization” of people’s minds and senses is still incurable.  Everything that is being offered by the media is threatening the dignity of the human person.  Sometimes, it also promotes this ideology that the human person is just an object of desire for the sake of profit.  What’s going on with the world?  Why sexual promiscuity, pervertness, licentiousness, and wantonness are now consider as the model of popularity, entertainment, and art by the today’s media?

Reading and reflecting the signs of the times, I cannot but alarmed by the invasion of pornography in this generation.  To be honest, I was a porn addict before.  I know what it means to be succumbed by the effects of porn into person’s life.  It really destroys and corrupts people’s life especially in the area of curiosity and relationship.  As a porn addict before, it was unavoidable with my disposition to look in women as an object of my desire.  It was an alarming issue for me before and it destroyed my capacity to relate with people especially with the opposite sex.  The real meaning and essence of love in my life was also affected by pornography which I considered as a deadly disease.  When pornography invaded my life, the pangs of guilt haunted me all the time.  I had a hard time to cope up with this issue and I really suffered before because I don’t know how to handle the issue which made my heart so restless.

But, thanks God I found a remedy with this issue.  Through the help and support of many people including my Spiritual Director and Counselor, I was able to conquer this issue.  I am thankful to have them because they helped me to move on and to be sincere with this issue.  Now, I can really say that I am fully recovered.  As a way of conquering my issue on being a porn addict, I am sharing this issue of mine on how I struggled, and then succeeded in conquering this issue with humility and sincerity.

Online pornographyMy past that happened as one of a porn addict would also be one of the main effects for others as the media continues to promote “pornographization” in their field of expertise.  Reading and reflecting the signs of time, then I realized that if the world continues to allow pornography as a medium for entertainment and satisfaction, the corruption of people’s inclination to attain moral perfection is possible.  My experience as a porn addict before may be a learning experience for this present issue which today’s generation ignores.  If they still continue to allow this thing to be just a normal thing, I cannot but imagine; if what will be the image of the world, i.e. a lot of chaos wherein people consider their neighbors as objects of desire and lust.  I am hoping that this thing will not happen.  I hope that the popularity of pornography in this world will be lessened and be totally eradicated.  Hey media!  Wake up a little bit!  Open your eyes and see what’s happening now.  “Pornographization” is not the way for you to persuade people’s attention on how to have a proper communication.  It’s always on the lever of good relation that should be deeply rooted in respect and prudence.
