The Porn Industry Kills…

Whether or not pornography is good for a culture or not is a complicated topic. On the one hand the right to print and view porn is a free speech issue, and on the other hand it can be a human rights issue.  Many young men and women die every year due to overdose, suicide, homicide, and accidents due to the torment they are going through working in porn films.   

Although I don’t have an answer about what is “right” and what is “wrong” where the availability of porn is concerned, former porn actress, Shelley Luben does.  She has created a crusade to help people get out of the porn industry.  Her site does anything but glamorize an industry that chews people up and spits them out. 

Watching porn is not a victimless crime. Porn Addiction Los Angeles

Eleven porn porn stars died from HIV, suicide, homicide and drugs in 2007.
Between 2003 and 2005, 976 performers were reported with 1,153 positive STD results.
66% of porn performers have Herpes, a non-curable disease.

    There are many industries that are well known to “chew people up and spit them out”. Entertainment is and has been well noted to be ruthless. Ask the thousand of has-been stars and wannabe’s how difficult this is. The movie Swimming with sharks is a good example.
    Remember that these people chose this profession. That is a vast difference from a slave sold and used.

    Yves….yeah….they choose the profession just like they chose to be abused and molested in their childhood. People often make “choices” which any real understanding of what drives them. If the people participating in the porn industry where offered the help they needed before they entered the industry, I bet their “choice” would be different. Yes, many industries chew people up and spit them out, but most people don’t have to risk being raped, exposed to disease, and abused. Don’t get me wrong, I feel those in the porn industry need to take responsibility for themselves, but to indicate that they chose this and the ramifications are perfectly acceptable is insane.
