My intention here is not to present a case against porn, nor am I trying to change your mind. However, I will share what I've experienced since making the conscious decision to let porn go. The results have been noteworthy, which is why I feel compelled to share.
When I was 12 my parents had no idea how naughty I truly was. By day I was the perfect child -- an honor student, a weekend artist, a water-skiing aficionado -- but at night, when the adults weren't looking, I was a very bad boy.
Sexual harassment was the norm. Pornography was prolific and the giant blue and gold penis painted on a training facility could be seen from space. It finally took a bold whistleblower to come forward to reveal the misogyny and sexism that Capt. Gregory McWherter condoned and encouraged.

Almost two weeks ago, the United States Supreme Court basically invalidated federal restitution for victims of child pornography.
Regardless of one's personal views about either adult movies or their performers, one must wonder whether JPMorgan Chase, which reportedly paid more than $20 billion in penalties and settlements in 2013 alone, might have more important things to do, like cleaning up its own financial house.
