The Feed meets a recovering porn addict to find out what life is really like when you're trying to quit porn.
CNN, April 27, 2015
CNNMoney’s Tech Reporter Laurie Segall uncovers a disturbing internet trend: the rise of revenge porn.
Revenge Porn is non-consensual pornography: everything from photos hacked from an unknowing victim’s computer, to an intimate video taken by a couple and then made public after the breakup. The private material is uploaded onto the dark web, bartered or traded for Bitcoin, and then sometimes used to blackmail victims for more explicit photos. Even more disturbing: the law, and technology itself, are way behind the curve. Once the photos are posted, it’s nearly impossible to stop their spread.
Segall’s in-depth study includes interviews with a victim who had to copyright her own body to get images taken down, a crusading mother who’s become the ‘Erin Brockovitch’ of revenge porn, and a hacker who explains why he ruined so many women’s lives.

Jameela Jamil finds out if it's true that children are being exposed to more pornography earlier than ever before - and what the effects of that might be. With smartphones and tablets making it easier than ever to get hold of the most explicit images, there are fears that each generation is seeing porn earlier than the one before, so Jameela meets teenagers across the country to hear from them what impact it has had on their attitudes and behavior.
With an exclusive survey, the biggest of its kind, revealing the truth about how much porn kids really see, she also talks to those behind some of the mostly commonly viewed material, including one of Britain's best known porn stars and rap artist Skepta, to see if they are worried about who's watching.
She visits a family whose eight-year-old son was unexpectedly exposed to hardcore porn and, as she hears how it has directly affected people's lives, Jameela asks if teaching children about porn could be the answer - and if so, at what age that should start.

Steve Kroft reports on a $10 billion industry
Selling sex is one of the oldest businesses in the world, and right now, business has never been better.
One of the biggest cultural changes in the United States over the past 25 years has been the widespread acceptance of sexually explicit material - pornography.
In the space of a generation, a product that once was available in the back alleys of big cities has gone corporate, delivered now directly into homes and hotel rooms by some of the biggest companies in the United States.
It is estimated that Americans now spend somewhere around $10 billion a year on adult entertainment, which is as much as they spend attending professional sporting events, buying music or going out to the movies.
Consumer demand is so strong that it has seduced some of America's biggest brand names, and companies like General Motors, Marriott and Time Warner are now making millions selling erotica to America. Last November, Correspondent Steve Kroft reported on this billion-dollar industry.
This documentary explores teenagers' emerging sexuality in an age of increasingly accessible and hardcore pornography. While the technology of our times (internet and mobile phones) amplify the availability of pornography, the impact on young people's sexual development and early relationships is unprecedented. The program tells the stories of young people for whom pornography is normalised, and goes behind the scenes of the porn industry to discover the reality behind the fantasy.

While magazines reflect human values, they also have the power to change them. This episode examines the trailblazers: from Playboy’s impact on the sexual revolution, to Ms. Magazine as a rallying cry for feminism, to the Advocate, a revolutionary magazine fighting for sexual and civil rights. Magazines find ways to challenge us with ideas that have the power to shape the political and social landscape.

Paul Ginocchio’s “The Courage to Love,” a pioneering documentary about four individuals’ journeys from the pain and shame of sexual addiction to the hope and healing of recovery.
“It is my hope that The Courage to Love will help to educate people who are curious or confused about sexual addiction and ultimately to help those who are still suffering.” – Paul Ginocchio, MFT, Filmmaker

This educational video has an important message: pornography is an addiction. Its effects on users and their loved ones are just as habit-forming and destructive as heroin, tobacco, or any other addictive agent. The film shows how pornography promotes contempt towards the women and children it exploits. The program features disturbing interviews with pornography addicts, many of whom are convicted sex offenders. They talk frankly about how pornography affects their psyches and systems, coloring all their activities and relationships.

Why are America's children disappearing? Why must parents live in fear that their children will be molested, abducted, or worse? Parents live in a state of continual fear. No longer do mothers worry about little Johnny coming home late for dinner - they must wonder if he will come home at all. But how did our country reach this point?
The Kinsey Syndrome unfolds the work and influence of Dr. Alfred Kinsey, considered to be "the father of the sexual revolution." But did Kinsey liberate America from its prudish view of sex? Or help to unleash the horrors of our present society?
This documentary shows how "The Kinsey Reports" have been used to change the laws concerning sex crimes in America, resulting in the minimal sentences so often given to rapists and pedophiles. Further explained is that the Kinsey data laid the foundation for sex education -- training teachers, psychologists and even Catholic priests in human sexuality. What has been the consequence? And what was Kinsey's research really based upon?
Working secretly in his attic, Dr. Kinsey was one of America's original pornographers. His influence inspired Hugh Hefner to launch Playboy Magazine - the "soft" approach to porn - which in time would escalate the widespread use of pornography through magazines, cable TV and the Internet. In 2006 the California Child Molestation & Sexual Abuse Attorneys reported that: "The number of victims of childhood sexual abuse and molestation grows each year. This horrific crime is directly tied to the growth of pornography on the Internet."
Perhaps most disturbing, Alfred Kinsey has been accused of training pedophiles to work with stopwatches and record the responses of children being raped - all in the name of "science." Among his workers was a Nazi pedophile whose relationship to Kinsey was exposed in a German court. The information from these crimes was then recorded in "Table 34" of Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male. How can lawmakers use such a document to define the moral parameters of our society?
Why has the truth about Kinsey been suppressed for so long? And what can Americans do to make a difference?
Fanlight Productions, 2005
This disturbing documentary enters the world of juvenile sex offenders whose victims are younger children. It explores the lives of three convicted teens between the ages of 15 and 17 (two male, one female), all of whom were themselves sexually abused when they were younger. Their victims were as young as four. The program offers a rare glimpse into the reality of adolescent sex offenders, as well as the experiences of professionals who are working to end the cycle of sexual exploitation. In graphic detail, participants in a treatment program discuss their evolution from sexual prey to sexual predators, from victims to victimizers.
Made in collaboration with a southeastern Pennsylvania outpatient treatment facility, the film explores the experiences, motivations, and aspirations of adolescent sex offenders and examines some strategies being used to rehabilitate them. The teens discuss their sexual experiences, the development of their offense cycle, what they have learned in treatment and their hopes for the future. Program staff and international experts comment on the importance of treatment and concerns about the effectiveness of mandatory registration programs. Juvenile justice authorities discuss the challenge of balancing community safety with rehabilitation. This is an excellent introduction to this issue, and to one cognitive-behavioral approach to the treatment of sexual offenders.

Benjamin Nolot, July 2013
Human Trafficking is a 32 billion dollar industry! We were born in the most sexually turbulent times in human history! Lord open our eyes to the disillusionment!
The most devastating outcome of the sexual revolution is that it disconnected sex from love in the name of freedom.
A healthy sexuality is an expression of love and intimacy not a substitute for it.
The end result of lust is a heart shut down and a life destroyed.
Men are not creatures dominated by sexuality! Men are the protectors, the liberators, and the servants of God's order!
Women are not sexual objects to be conquered! Women are the crowning glory and beauty of God's creation!
Destructive sexuality tries to be a substitute for true God-given love and intimacy.
We don't seem like a Bride without stain & blemish, but Jesus WILL take a prostituted Bride and make us clean & spotless.
The sexual lies of enemy are going to be demolished by the mighty hand of God!
1) Abstain from toxic sexuality 2) Guide sexuality with discretion. 3) Establish appropriate relationships
The Lord will have a pure and spotless bride when He returns. The Church will be ready with pure eyes and pure love.
Jesus is stronger than the spirit of lust that has raped this generation, every chain will be broken at His name
The weakness for a woman is to exploit her beauty and a weakness for a man is to consume her.
Please pray for our new documentary which will basically be a cinematic representation of what I spoke about tonight. [email protected]
"Listening to @BenjaminNolot gives me hope that women could be valued for who they are and men could rise up as protectors of the weak."

Readily available and aggressively marketed online, exposure to hardcore pornography is now mainstream. The classroom or parent talk is now no match for porn – with its endless array of gyrating bodies, offering a quick, easy and anonymous sexual charge. Porn has become the default sexuality educator for young people growing up online.
The Porn Factor takes viewers on a journey of discovery, from regional and urban Australia to the centre of the international porn industry in Los Angeles and back. Through candid interviews with young people, experts and porn industry professionals, The Porn Factor explores how pornography is shaping young people’s sexual expectations and experiences. It brings into compelling focus the 21st century challenges faced by parents, schools and others as they seek to equip young people for a sexuality that is safe, respectful and fully consenting.
BBC, 14 Jul, 2019
This documentary offers a never-before-seen look at the incel community, an online subculture linked to multiple mass murders and hate crimes against women.
In 2014, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger shot and stabbed six of his fellow students to death in a premeditated attack at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His motive? In a chilling video Rodger said he was angry that he was still a virgin and in his words wanted to show himself as 'the true alpha male' by punishing women for not being attracted to him.
The legacy of Rodger's assault catapulted online incels into wider consciousness. Incels - short for 'involuntary celibates' - are a global community of sexually frustrated young men, who have found support amongst one another on the net. Some idolise Rodger, and chillingly, his murder spree seems to have helped inspire at least three further mass killings in North America, that have mainly targeted women.
At its extreme, incel ideology spreads violent misogyny, which blames women for depriving men of sex and relationships. Some forums have recorded up to 40,000 members and feature depraved ideas like state-sponsored rape and girlfriends.
Following eight months of unprecedented access to incels, this documentary is the deepest exploration yet of this notoriously closed community.
Told primarily through the personal stories of three men who identify as incels, the documentary explores how an online ideology can push young men into very disturbing behaviour. But the film also delves behind the sensationalist media headlines to unearth some of the reasons for incels' existence - many feel alienated and are enduring difficulties, like mental health issues, autism or traumatic upbringing.
For some, the online forums are a haven to joke, vent and find support in a world where they are struggling to find an identity and where gender relations are changing dramatically. The question is, where are the lines between this radical misogyny and violence?
