“Porn: Definitely Splicing Things Up”
Everyone who comes across this paper, has at one time in their life seen porn, for most
of us we first viewed sexually explicit content during our teenage years. Well, what if I was to
tell you that that content that we viewed as adolescents, has potentially influenced our beliefs,
thoughts and actions that we’ve chosen to have toward sex. According to the Western Journal of
Medicine, in the year 2000, WSJ conducted research on young people's exposure to sexual
content through television and other electronic media, ultimately influencing their sexual
attitudes' beliefs and behaviors. Now, fast forward 18 years from when that research was
conducted, and we now have enough solid evidence to confirm that porn is indeed harmful, not
only to the underdeveloped minds of teenagers but also to the constitution of Marriage, to the
poverty rates in America every time a family is torn apart because of it and to the American
Dream.
In this country’s past, marriage used to be the corner stone to adulthood. Society
perceived that the right way of having sex and starting a family was by getting married before
doing so. In the past people would get married to be able to have sex. In 1967, the average age to
get married for men was 23 and for women it was 20. At that time there were about 400,000
divorces a year. At that time in history, everyone who got married, assumed that marriage meant
for life. Now the average age for a man to get married is 27 and for women its 26. But why
might we ask ? Some people seem to think that people are marrying for different reasons then
they were over 40 years ago. Now, people have a lot more freedom to choose if they want to get
married in the first place and if they do decide to get married, then, they have more freedom in
choosing who they want to marry, as oppose to the past, where some people might have been

bound to a marriage of traditional family or religious standards. I happen to believe, that the
launch of internet porn contributes to the seemingly downward spiral of marriage rates, poverty
rates and success rates among students.
When couples are married or together for any period of time, they can fall into a sexual
routine and things get kind of predictable and less exciting, naturally, people search high and low
to find out how they can spice things up. The phrase “to spice things up” certainly doesn’t mean
what it used to before the internet was launched. It used to mean incorporating more alone time
without the kids, going dancing, watching a movie or perhaps even reading sexual romance
novels. Now it means incorporating porn into the couple's sexual activity without even any proof
that it works. In truth, they should change the term “spicing things up” to “splicing things up,”
because that’s exactly what porn is doing to marriages when they look to porn to somehow fix or
repair their marriage.
When research was done on the relationship between pornography and...
