How Big Is Big Porn?

Breaking Free, the blog of Covenant Eyes, had this post earlier today which really helps put some things into perspective.

Good statistics on the annual revenues of the porn industry seem elusive.  This piece adds some clarity and, even in possibly revising downward the actual number, still paints a troubling picture.

No matter the actual dollar amount of revenue, the influence of the pornography industry is massive. When elementary school kids know all the lyrics to songs such as “I’m Sexy And I Know It,” and the “artist” on that song is named for a texting acronym that includes an expletive used to mean sexual intercourse, we see the way porn culture has established itself.

That’s just one of many examples.

The world of pornography is a world of entrapment and blindness.  Pornography addiction is a willful entrapment.  Many performers in the industry are trapped as well.

Those who defend the prevalence of pornography — either because they have a stake in the success of the industry, or because they enjoy it and don’t want anyone to speak ill of their pleasure — choose blindness.  They prefer to be blind to the actual devastation of pornography on the lives of its performers and its purchasers.

How big is big porn? Too big, by any standard.
