The Essential Reason Porn is Wrong

The Essential Reason Porn is Wrong

Matt Fradd, Founder of The Porn Effect

The human person is a good towards which the only proper attitude is love. While pornography has many negative consequences (it can be addictive, it can lead to sexual violence, children are often exposed to it, etc.) that ought to be addressed, we cannot forget the fundamental reason it is wrong: it reduces people to things to be used, instead of treating them as persons with intrinsic dignity and unalienable rights.

Matt Fradd is the Director of Youth and Young Adult Outreach for Integrity Restored, as well as their Director of Content Development. He is the editor of Delivered: True Stories of Men and Women who Turned From Porn to Purity and coauthor of Victory: A Strategic Battle Plan for Freedom in the Struggle Against Pornography. Matt speaks to tens of thousands of people every year on the dangers of pornography and how to be free from it. He lives in Georgia with his wife Cameron and their four children.
