Review of Related Literature


Cary Tennis (July 2008) said, And naturally whether you approve of porn in theory or not, its effect will be to displace you. Like crack, it tends to take over, to push out other hungers that tend to nurture the human community by making us dependent on one another. Since we are dependent on each other we must be civil and loving. If we are not dependent on each other then we needn't be civil and loving. We needn't have community and family. (Salon magazine) There is debate whether it is truly moral to be 'civil and loving' purely because it is necessary, as Cary Tennis seems to say here. Other Christians argue that to be 'civil and loving' purely because we are dependent on others is actually immoral and manipulative. These Christians argue that to be self-contained, independent and yet still warm and loving is a greater virtue. Debbie Nathan (November 2008) in her book, Pornography: A Groundwork Guide, she stated this Porn is everywhere today, everyone is looking, and the media responds with little more than gloom-and-doom talk about evils like Internet sex addiction, or rah-rah promotion of Brazilian waxing and Jenna Jamesons fame and fortune. Meanwhile, few know the real history of this explosive media, or the truth about its business practices, working conditions, politics and actual effects on people. According to Dr. Jerry Bergman (2005), Pornography distorts the natural development of personality. If the early stimulus is pornographic photographs, the

adolescent can be conditioned to become aroused through photographs. Once this pairing is rewarded a number of times, it is likely to become permanent. The result to the individual is that it becomes difficult for the person to seek out relations with appropriate persons. Although with the human population growing, it can be doubted whether this lack of desire for a human partner is a bad thing. The articles authored by Debbie Nathan and Dr. Jerry Bergman related to our study since it tackles about the actual effects of pornography in what mediums/media it would be explosive. It discusses the destructive effects of pornography, once an individual is in the habit of watching it. Difficulties could be observed. R. Langevin (2005) discusses how innovation in technology provides new opportunities for the pursuit of sexual deviance. New technology in computers may have applicability for carnal behavior. Through on-line bulletin boards dedicated to particular modes of sexual behavior, computer users with special sexual predilections can communicate with persons who share similar interests around the world. Erotic computer communication may involve mild flirtations, exchanging information about sexual services availability, and specific varieties of deviant behavior. Computers have been used for child pornography and to arrange meetings for sexual purposes. The appearance of computer erotica can be interpreted at various functional levels and holds considerable import for social behavior and may revolutionize crime and the parameters of deviant sexual behavior.

Computer plays a great part on the immediate and fast spreading of sexual themed films or images, which changes the behavior of a certain person. According to Gordon B. (2004), Pornography or sexually explicit image is more intense than a dirty or spoiled food. Our body has immune system to prevent spreading of diseases from those foods. On the other hand, some one who is used to viewing pornography records it in a retrieval system called brain. The brain doesnt filtrate and drain out that dirt entering our brain. Once it has been recorded, youre suppose to retrieve and to recall it. You will be away from significant things in the world.

Pornography has destructive effect to our personal relation. It destroys the ability of an individual to enjoy the normal pleasure and spiritual relation in opposite sex. Because of numb conscience, pornographers and porn patrons would be encourage to to emulate what they see without thinking the possible effects on his/her life or to others lives. The means of measuring the evilness is not knowing how bad it is but the effects it can bring to others. Once, they use internet and other source and sort of pornography, they become sinful.

The articles authored by Gordon B. conveys almost the same idea with what Dr. Jerry Bergman had discussed in his article. According to him, it would be difficult for an individual to seek out relations with appropriate persons because of usual viewing of sexual subject matter. Changes in behavior can be observed from a person who watches obscene items. And that is what our study is all about.
