Pamela An­der­son: Porn is ‘for losers’

Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINMENT - — ET

For­mer Play­boy model Pamela An­der­son wants the world to stop watch­ing pornog­ra­phy.

In a re­cent Wall Street Jour­nal col­umn co-writ­ten with rabbi-coun­selor Sh­mu­ley Boteach, the 49-yearold ac­tress high­lights the dan­gers and dev­as­tat­ing ef­fects of pornog­ra­phy.

The ar­ti­cle, a re­sponse to for­mer U.S. Rep. An­thony Weiner’s lat­est sex­ting scan­dal, also sug­gests that pornog­ra­phy is for “losers” and a “dead-end out­let for peo­ple too lazy to reap the am­ple re­wards of healthy sex­u­al­ity.”

“What is re­quired is an hon­est di­a­logue about what we are wit­ness­ing — the true na­ture and dan­ger of porn — and an honor code to tamp it down in the col­lec­tive in­ter­ests of our well-be­ing as in­di­vid­u­als, as fam­i­lies and as com­mu­ni­ties,” the ar­ti­cle con­tin­ues.

Boteach and An­der­son, who has ap­peared on over a dozen Play­boy cov­ers, go on to say that the dan­gers of pornog­ra­phy are ir­re­versible.

“We are a guinea-pig gen­er­a­tion for an ex­per­i­ment in mass de­base­ment that few of us would have ever con­sented to, and whose full ne­far­i­ous im­pact may not be known for years,” it says. “The march of tech­nol­ogy is ir­re­versible, and we aren’t so naive as to be­lieve that any kind of im­posed reg­u­la­tion could ever re­seal the Pandora’s box of pornog­ra­phy.”

An­der­son, whose sex tape with Tommy Lee was leaked in 1995, shares two chil­dren with the mu­si­cian: Bran­don Thomas Lee, 20, and Dy­lan Jag­ger Lee, 18.
