Pamela Anderson: Give up porn before you become Anthony Weiner

Life’s most important messages can come from a wise family member, a close friend, or a wise professor — but sometimes they come from Pamela Anderson.

The former Baywatch beauty co-wrote an oped in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal warning men about the addictive dangers of pornography and how they can ruin a family, as it did to Anthony Weiner.

“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,” Anderson wrote.

The former Playboy model insisted that porn had “corrosive effects on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as husband and, by extension, as father.” She called it a national public hazard.

Anderson’s accusations are exaggerated, but not entirely baseless. Cambridge University studied the brain scans of porn addicts and found that they are eerily similar to those of drug addicts.

The American Psychological Association reported that anywhere from 50 to 99 percent of men consume pornography, and it makes guys less satisfied in bed and less likely to want to stay with just one partner. Furthermore a report from Babble Out found that 58 percent of people addicted to porn suffer financial loss and one-in-three even lose their jobs.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, porn is as addictive as marijuana and not far behind cocaine dependency.

Generation Z may become bigger porn addicts than any previous generation. “They are the crack babies of porn,” Anderson said, pointing out that technology is making pornography so much more widely accessible than it was 15 or 20 years ago.

Anderson says she doesn’t want to ban porn, because it would be fruitless, saying that technology is never going to move backwards. She said government regulations “could never reseal the Pandora’s box of pornography.”

Instead of being Puritanical and giving up on sex, Anderson wants people to have more of it and lead a “sensual revolution” and educate ourselves to understand that “porn is for losers—a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality.”

It’s ironic Anderson is committed to ending pornography, given that she appeared on the cover of Playboy more times than any other model in history. Her home video with ex-husband Tommy Lee was the original Kim K or One Night in Paris.

Facts being what they are, maybe it takes a personality like Anderson’s to tell men to end their addiction to porn. Just like only Nixon could go to China, only Pamela could tell men to close the computer and go make love to your girlfriend.
