BRAZZER BRAZENLY OFFERS OFFENSIVE SMUT TO COLLEGE STUDENTS ACROSS U.S.
Overwhelming Research Shows Dangers of Porn
Lakewood, CO – Pornographic internet company, Brazzer, is offering American college students free access to pornographic material. Companies like Brazzer continue to distort human sexuality and harm students for profit. Colorado Christian University wholeheartedly condemns the practice of addicting young people to pornography because of the long reaching and devastating effects on lives, careers, marriages, and families. Instead, we are training up young men and women to abide by the moral teachings of the Bible and to engage in healthy relationship practices so that they can flourish as husbands, wives, fathers, and mothers.
Pornography is documented time and time again to ruin lives, careers, marriages, and families. Research has shown:
- Young men and women who report higher pornography use and from earlier ages engage in more risky sexual behaviors.
- 56% of divorces in America involve one party who has “an obsessive interest in pornographic websites.”
- A study of women entering a program for battered women showed that a partner’s pornography use nearly doubled the odds that a woman reported being sexually assaulted by her partner.
- Continued use of pornography erodes the prefrontal region of the brain, responsible for our willpower.
- Pornography addiction changes the brain similar to drug addiction.
- 86% of prostitutes say johns show them pornography in order to illustrate specific acts they want them to perform.
- About 90% of scenes in top-selling pornography contains at least one act of physical aggression.
- Verbal aggression, such as name-calling, is present in about half of adult video scenes.
- The most popular category of sexual searches online—by a very wide margin—is “youth.”
- Child-sex offenders are more likely to view pornography regularly or to be involved in its distribution
