  • Hey internet friends.

  • Pornography has been around for ages, but now it is more mainstream, more accessible

  • and more brutal than ever, pushing themes like incest, pedophilia, and sadomasochism,

  • just to name a few.

  • So is mainstream pornography the biggest social experiment ever?

  • Through the dark recesses of the internet, is an agenda being pushed?

  • An agenda that involves detachment from reality,

  • programming users to be spectators and voyeurs, not active participants in their own livesan

  • agenda that preys upon animalistic desires, reducing people to objectsjust call girls

  • and cannon fodder.

  • Today, I'm going to break down the history of pornography, discuss who controls this

  • shadowy industry and how exactly they make their money, and also address the effects

  • that pornography has on society.

  • While some of you might find this information disturbing, it's not my goal to upset you,

  • but I want to help get this conversation started so you can continue it.

  • Pornography, is, by definition: "the depiction of erotic behavior (as in pictures or writing)

  • intended to cause sexual excitement", and while you could argue that individuals throughout

  • history have drawn explicit acts on cave walls or painted them on pottery, as well sculpted

  • as carve nude bodies into stone, historians point at the year 1527, towards the end of the Roman

  • Empire, as the defining moment in time when pornography emerged in the form of sexually

  • explicit engravings of gods participating in various acts.

  • Over the centuries pornography expanded from stimulating images to written word, or what

  • we now know today as erotica...or smut, some people say "smut".

  • Over the next couple of centuries, both copies of engraved images and the text spread throughout

  • Europe, with erotica being read by mainly the wealthy, those who could afford publications

  • during a time when books were expensive and who could also read. Fast forward to the emergence

  • of photography and film with the camera being pushed to the mainstreaminstead of pornography

  • being carved into stone, painted on canvas, printed in books, or written as smut, people

  • could now see photos and films of others in the nude or engaged in sex acts.

  • Pornography shops sprouted across the west, and theaters sold tickets to risqué films.

  • Thanks in part to Alfred Kinsey, whom some refer to as the "father of the sexual revolution",

  • a cultural shift began to take place over the next few decades as a result of the sexologist's

  • publications, exploring the sexual behavior in both the human male and female.

  • Basically, these publications served as collections on his research on human sexuality, and the

  • conclusions of these studies were widely accepted because science was generally regarded as

  • a prestigious endeavor.

  • But the reality of Kinsey's research was anything but prestigious.

  • To put it plainly, this dude was a pervert with a PhD who oversaw sexual experiments

  • on children, among other practices funded largely by...any guesses? The Rockefeller Foundation.

  • As America's attitude towards sex began to shift, adult magazine publications gained popularity, most

  • famously Hugh Hefner's playboy magazine which made its debut in the 1950s, featuring what

  • they deemed "artistic nudity", and the publications funneled their newfound success into the film

  • industry.

  • But this industry has never been solely about making a dollar off of consenting adults engaging

  • in sex.

  • In the 1970s, Brooke Shields was photographed nude, in a bathtub, by photographer

  • Gary Gross for the Playboy publication Sugar 'n' Spice. She was ten-years-old.

  • In the 1980's, 18-year-old Traci Lords made headlines when authorities discovered she'd

  • appeared in pornographic movies while she was underage.

  • Between ages 15 and 18, Traci Lords had been in 77 sex films and posed nude for publications

  • like Penthouse magazine.

  • Both of these are cases that we know about because the individuals involved went on to

  • become famous models and actresses, but what about the young men and women who were exploited

  • by this industry and their stories were never told?

  • The widespread adoption of the VCR allowed individuals to consume pornographic films

  • within the privacy of their own home.

  • The trend continued with the popularity of computers and internet access, with an endless

  • array of photos, films, and even real-time virtual interaction at the user's fingertips.

  • Now, it's estimated that "30 percent of all data transferred across the Internet is porn".

  • About every 40 minutes a new film is made, and for every second that passes, that accounts

  • for 30,000 people in the united states who are consuming pornography, and one third of

  • those people are women. Porn is now deeply engrained into our culture, funneled through

  • channels like marketing and advertising.

  • When you have popular pornography websites taking up billboard space in New York City,

  • viral news outlets like Buzzfeed normalizing porn usage, and social media outlets saturated

  • with pornographic content, it's unsurprising that the average age a child is first exposed

  • to pornography is age 11.

  • Pornography is the new sex education, serving as a vehicle for informing a generation about

  • sex.

  • Is this all by chance or by design?

  • Pornhub, the most popular website to view free pornography, averages about 64 million

  • visitors per day, and on their website, they even have a sex education portalwhich is

  • disturbing to me, at least, because if you go to the front page of the world's most popular

  • porn site, it's littered with titles involving incest, violence, abuse, infidelity, and barely

  • legal women.

  • So who is behind this industry?

  • How are they making their money when the most easily accessible pornography is free?

  • Or is it?

  • If something is free, are you really the customer?

  • Or are you the product?

  • It's been reported "Porn is a global, estimated $97 billion industry, with about $12 billion

  • of that coming from the U.S."

  • The majority of films in the US are shot and produced in what's known as the second Hollywood:

  • the San Fernando Valley.

  • Traditionally, the movies that were produced by film studios out there were sold as a tape

  • or a DVD in a movie store, or individuals would pay-to-view on their televisions or

  • computer screens, but now, on the world's most popular porn website that functions as

  • a portal and a database, the majority of the content is free.

  • So how is the porn industry still booming?

  • Of course there are subscription-based websites, but it's hard to compete with free.

  • The porn monopoly Mindgeek offers up ad space for niche sites, collecting a percentage for

  • each customer who signs up, and while their original platform began by offering pirated

  • videos and getting traffic and money from those online impressions, now Mindgeek is

  • glad to buy your production company's films and offer you a percentage of the ad revenue.

  • So who are the individuals behind this industry that is growing more brutal and extreme as

  • days pass?

  • The industry is a private one, and for that reason, it's difficult to assess how large

  • it actually is.

  • 99 00:07:47,419 --> 00:07:51,000 This is the part of the video where a few of you are going to get angry with me because

  • I find it disingenuous to omit the obvious.

  • Much like traditional Hollywood, there's a disproportionate amount of Jewish control

  • in the pornography industry.

  • Now, does that mean that its entirely under Jewish control?

  • Does that mean that all Jewish people support the pornography industry?

  • Does that mean that the pornography industry only employees Jewish people?

  • No, no, and of course not.

  • A Jewish publication, the Jewish Quarterly, was actually the official source of this claim.

  • In an article titled "Triple exthnics: Nathan Abrams on Jews in the American porn industry",

  • Mr. Abrams describes the Jewish role in erotic publications, photography, film production,

  • and even acting, noting their disproportionate role in this industry and saying, " Jews

  • have helped to transform a fringe subculture into what has become a primary constituent

  • of Americana," and then adds that the majority entered the porn industry to make a buck.

  • Also mentioned in the article is a Jewish pornographer known as the "Walt Disney of

  • Pornography," Reuben Sturman, who was said to have controlled the majority of the pornography

  • industry in the 1970s, but he remained in the shadow, doing business out of the public

  • eye.

  • However, things took a turn for Sturman later in life, and he ended up dying in prison in

  • 1997.

  • Pornographer and publisher of Screw magazine, Al Goldstein, also gets an honorable mention

  • in the article with his quote, "'The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that

  • we think that Christ sucks.

  • Catholicism sucks.

  • We don't believe in authoritarianism.'

  • What's been provided

  • are historical examples of Jewish people in the porn industry.

  • There is an extensive list, but personally, I'd like to move away from highlighting the

  • individuals who claim to be Jews and instead, pose this question: Is monetary profit the

  • only goal of the pornography industry?

  • To answer this question, we've gotta look at the effects of pornography on society.

  • First, let's look at effects on children.

  • Like I said before, the average age a child is exposed to pornography is eleven.

  • Viewing of pornography now serves as sex education.

  • So let's consider those two bullet points and what they mean.

  • If a child has been exposed to pornography at that young of an age, that means that there

  • is a very slim chance they've had the opportunity to establish a foundation of what it means

  • to have a healthy relationship before viewing videos that involve group sex, infidelity,

  • and violence towards women.

  • And that's important to note because

  • these experiences shape a child's views on relationships, their expectations

  • of what's normal, and how they see themselves, which carries onto adulthood. If you're an

  • adult who consumes pornography on a frequent or regular basis, according to numerous studies,

  • there's a high probability your perception of reality is warped, and your tastes are

  • being affected by what's presented to you on a screen.

  • Now, most of these studies deal with male pornography use, and how the instant gratification

  • of pornography results in less incentive to find a mate.

  • Why would you leave your house when you can satisfy whatever sexual desires you might have with a click

  • of a button?

  • But studies show that if you actually do go out and meet someone, yet continue high porn usage, there's a correlation

  • between usage and the inability to be aroused by anything besides images on a screen.

  • There are also numerous reports of men being dissatisfied with their potential mates because

  • their woman doesn't live up to the porn girl fantasy.

  • What I'm trying to say here is that there's a direct link between porn usage and loneliness,

  • and even depression.

  • And normalization of extreme behaviors through various porn propaganda outlets doesn't just

  • affect men, it also affects women, both in the way young girls view themselves and how

  • they're treated by men who view this pornography on a frequent basis.

  • Porn trends have leaned towards more depraved and violent behaviors towards womenthe

  • the brutal nature of these videos has increased over the years.

  • If you're a consumer of this product, what effect is it leaving on you?

  • Furthermore, adult relationships in which one or more parties consume pornography on

  • a regular basis lead to less and less sex over time, meaning less opportunities to produce

  • offspring.

  • Partner this piece of information with the fact that men who masturbate on a regular

  • basis have lower testosterone levels than those who do not.

  • Studies have shown that women are drawn to men with healthy levels of testosterone, because

  • that means they'll have a better chance of having healthy offspring.

  • That's kind of unsettling to consider because we're living in a society where porn use is widespread, with

  • diet and other environmental factors that ultimately influence hormones and fertility.

  • When I look at these effects, I would say that if there is an agenda, it's one part

  • depopulation, one part destruction of the traditional family by moral subversion, and

  • one part destruction of the individual through means of addiction and detachment from reality,

  • and perhaps one part blackmail, because nothing you do online is truly private, searches are

  • being tracked by popular search engines, and these porn portals collect data on you just

  • like Facebook does.

  • All of that information is being saved by someone, somewhere.

  • I'll also throw in that porn fuels the demand for sex trafficking, which is an industry

  • that individuals obviously profit from as well.

  • I know that was all doom and gloom and dark clouds and gray skies, but fear not, the pornography problem is an easy fix.

  • I know that, throughout this video, I've placed blame on the porn industry and pornography

  • as a product, but the truth is, without a consumer, there is no market.

  • Without demand, there would be no supply.

  • Therefore the solution is you.

  • You can decide rise above the normalization of objectification and abuse.

  • You can decide to invest your time in self-betterment and fostering loving and meaningful relationships

  • instead of spending your time on choosing what to watch next.

  • What do you have to lose from doing so?

  • Hope you enjoyed the video. I always look forward to your comments.
