Aside from previously posing on the cover of Playboy 15 times, Pamela Anderson has a surprising opinion about the adult entertainment industry: men should steer clear of it.
In an open letter for the Wall Street Journal, Anderson teamed up with Rabbi Schmuley Boteach to express the opinion that porn is a “public hazard” and could destroy families.
“This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays. How many families will suffer? How many marriages will implode? How many talented men will scrap their most important relationships and careers for a brief onanistic thrill?”
The two even pulled in Anthony Weiner, the disgraced ex-congressman who’s way too interested in sexting random women online, as a prime example.
“And if anyone still doubted the devastation that porn addiction wreaks on those closest to the addict, behold the now-shattered marriage of Mr. Weiner and Huma Abedin, a breakup that she initiated, reportedly, in shock at the disgraced ex-congressman’s inclusion of their 4-year-old son in one lewd photo that he sent to a near-stranger.”
She has a point with Weiner — the guy’s the worst — but her point about children growing up with too much technology seems a bit far-fetched, claiming they “become adults inured to intimacy and in need of even greater graphic stimulation. They are the crack babies of porn.”
Yikes. However, the 49-year-old has a solution: “We must educate ourselves and our children to understand that porn is for losers — a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to rep the ample rewards of healthy sexuality.”
Considering the woman has a sex tape herself, her opinion seems a bit extreme. There’s a difference between a porn addiction and watching a quick video for some self-love time. Watching an erotic video every once in a while doesn’t make you a “loser,” it makes you normal. Watching one every hour is a different story.
