Owing to modern technology such as cell phones, social media and the internet, more people than ever are exposed to pornography.

Porn is available to anybody who wants to view it, and even those who don't aren't immune to the industry's vicious marketing tactics.

On this week's episode of Mic'd Up, Michael Voris talks to Matt Fradd, author of The Porn Myth: Exposing the Reality Behind the Fantasy of Pornography. Matt has spent over 12 years exposing the evil of porn and has developed an online course called STRIVE: a 21-day detox from porn, which gives members the layout for how they can defeat porn addiction.

In 2019, there were over 42 billion visits to Pornhub, which is one of the largest porn sites in the world.

The relationship between porn, sex trafficking and prostitution is largely unknown and commonly unspoken about.

Sex trafficking is simply forced sex for money and it's illegal.

Prostitution is simply consensual sex for money and it's illegal.

Porn is simply sex for money and it's legal.

The only difference between porn, sex trafficking and prostitution is that porn, for the most part, is not regulated, and is allowed to be seen by anybody who wants to view it.

A viewer of porn is either watching the crime of sex trafficking, when somebody on screen is being forced or coerced into sexual acts for profit, or they're watching the crime of prostitution, when the people on screen consent to the sexual acts for profit.

Not only is porn ethically wrong, but it literally destroys the brain. Porn is extremely addictive and it's this addiction that leads to hypofrontality, which weakens and damages the prefrontal cortex. This area of the brain is responsible for executive functioning — decision making, personality expression, evaluating risk, controlling impulses and more.

Executive Director of Prostitution Research and Education, Melissa Farley, said in a 2019 interview: "There isn't pornography over here, prostitution over here and trafficking over there. They're interlinked."
