This young man stopped watching porn and we all should – here’s why!

Inspiration Think About It

The title of this article is no joke! Ran Gavrieli, a student of gender studies at Tel Aviv University, Israel actually stopped watching porn. We guessed Ran doesn’t have a healthy sexual life because he doesn’t engage in normal act of watching porn like all of us. He proved us so wrong! Ran has a sexual life and it is better than all of us.

Watch Ran Gavrieli talk discuss why he stopped watching porn.

What changed? Ran realized that watching porn made him think differently about female bodies and especially women in the society. He questioned the normal trend of all porn videos – women suppression by men, sexual abuse, unnatural violent sex and no love or act of affection involved. He also suggested that the options to choose from on any porn website like teenage school girls, Asians, Blacks, etc. suggest there is a demand for such girls/women and someone should be involved in girl/women trafficking. What are we doing by watching porn? Dragging more women to the dirty business. Ran works with young adults and promotes positive body image.

Let’s admit, we all watch porn so we all could have that naturally desired release. No shame! It is time we discuss these topics openly, we all are adults and if we aren’t, it’s time we all grow up. However, I assume if you are reading this article, then you are an adult or soon going to be one.

We all watched porn without realizing that we are the ones who unintentionally demand for girls and women in the porn industry. And that the act in the videos strongly influence men to treat women with violence only showing that women like it. Women are aroused or pleased by treating violently. That is so wrong. Women have never expressed that they like to be treated badly.

Here I bring a few reasons so you stop watching porn like Ran and I and eliminate women trafficking-

1. Pornography pushes the demand for women trafficking.

2. Porn videos are used as on the job training tools in the sex industry. Now you know what you are doing by watching them.

3. We are not authentically designed to like abusive sex. Ask yourself if you wanted to indulge in it before watching porn.

4. Approximately 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation

5. The average age of a teen that enters the sex trade is between 12 to 14-years.

6. Many of these victims are girls who were sexually abused in their childhood.

7. A study by UNICEF recently identified six Assam districts of India – Sonitpur, Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, Baksa, Kokrajhar, Udalguri and Kamrup as the most vulnerable districts for trafficking. Join hands and try helping those girls.

8. Haryana is another center for women trafficking due to low sex ratio.

9. Trafficked women are transferred within or across country boundaries from their place of residence.

11. Demand for women employment in the sex industry is the reason behind women trafficking – both voluntary or coerced

12. A study compared men who buy sex with who don’t buy sex found – sex buyers viewed and imitated pornography more often than the non-sex buyers. This means the videos stay in our heads so much that we like to act like the people we saw in the videos.
Look at it and you will know.

13. “In my mind, pornography is a lot more harmful than even prostitution, because you take a picture or video of someone, they are forever exploited at the age and time that they are, so you can take a girl off the streets, and the exploitation stops, but their photos and videos are out there forever.” ~ Trafficking survivor, Jessica Richardson

14. What is your culture? Name it!
