Pam Anderson’s Strange Stance on Porn

Pam Anderson is not a person who you would predict would come out as Anti-Porn. After all, she’s made a career out of starring on the cover of adult magazines and even being in 2 porn movies that were allegedly both a leaked sex tape. Her whole career has been based off of the fact that she is hot and blonde with nice big surgically enhanced titties, which is pretty similar to many pornstars. However, she has written a whole piece for The Wall Street Journal with celebrity rabbi Schmuley Boteach about why porn is bad.

Quite frankly, and forgive me for going to such a scholarly place, but her arguments are firmly cemented in the patriarchal views that harm both men and women in our society. Pamela and Schmuley argue that porn has a “corrosive effect on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as husband, and, by extension, as father.” This suggests that a man’s sole function on this planet, his sole worth, is to get married to some broad and knock her up. This is a very outdated way of thinking. Both men and women have a lot more to offer the planet these days than this traditional family model. What about porn’s effect on women or on gay people? Does their worth to the planet not matter as much according to Anderson and Boteach, or is this opinion piece simply misinformed and misguided?

Pamela argues that “porn is for losers.” This statement I must disagree with strongly because I love porn and I am absolutely not a loser! At least that’s what I tell myself…Anyways, this message coming from Ms. Anderson is a bit hypocritical. As recently as January 2016 she posed nude for men’s magazines, which some would argue, is porn!

Their arguments against porn are from such a narrow view that it has caused a lot of disappointment in Ms. Anderson. There is much evidence to the contrary of people who say that porn is bad. Sex researcher Nicole Prouse told The Daily Beast that there’s actually little to no evidence for anything negative about porn, and that those who do not have religious affiliations rarely feel they need treatment for “porn addiction,” which had become a buzzword by some people to indicate anyone who enjoys any sort of hedonistic activity.

Some analysts believe that Pam Anderson is just out of date. She was once at the forefront of the dissemination of sexuality in the media, and now that she is not a part of it as much, she just doesn’t get it. Why do celebrities and politicians keep placing their moral viewpoints on consumers heads and making people feel ashamed for what they do? We’re only on this planet for a short time, we might as well enjoy ourselves by watching a little bit of porn!
