DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that according to an article posted on HuffPost on December 6, 2017, porn sites get more visitors per month than the combined number of visitors of Netflix, Amazon, and Twitter? On one hand, 70% of men, especially young boys, watch porn and on the other, 30% of women also do, according to the infographic available on HuffPost. The issue of pornography has sparked numerous debates on morality, especially in most conservative Asian countries such as Philippines and India. A news article on CNN News published on January 20, 2017, says that Philippine government has ordered National Telecommunications Commissions (NTC) to block major porn websites in the country under the Republic Act 9775, also known as the anti-child pornography law. Consequently, series of survey interview in the city of Manila was conducted and revealed an alarming state on the part of the parents who have young children. On a related noted, 857 porn sites were also banned in India to resolve cyber content-related issues However, the decision faced a huge of number of flak over social media with commentators saying it is an act of internet censorship. To look at this issue from a moral perspective is too controversial. Thus, a more objective way to tackle this is through science. Researchers have concluded several negative effects of watching porn such as it can lead to less connected and less active brain cells; it is addictive due to the desensitized pleasure; and lastly, it can damage one’s healthy sex life.
