Pamela Anderson wants people to stop watching porn

Pamela Anderson thinks that porn is dangerous.

Pamela Anderson has taken a stand against pornography, calling those who watch it "losers", Stuff reports.
The actress (49) teamed up with Rabbi counsellor, Shumley Boteach, to produce a column for the Wall Street Journal, openly expressing her feelings on the subject.
The former Playboy model herself was an unwilling porn participant in 1995, when a sex tape starring her and ex-husband, Tommy Lee, was stolen from the couple’s home and leaked to the public.
The column makes an impassioned plea for people to stop watching explicit material for fear of it ruining their relationships.
“This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays,” the column reads. “How many families will suffer? How many marriages will implode? How many talented men will scrap their most important relationships and careers for a brief onanistic thrill?”
The pair called pornography a "dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of a healthy sexuality" and labelled those who watch it "losers".
The column was written in response to a recent US scandal which saw ex-congressman Anthony Weiner, “sexting” a woman while his son was in bed with him.
His wife, Huma Abedin, announced their separation soon after the New York Post published the lewd picture.
While the column takes a hard stance on the “true nature and danger of porn” there’s also a call to open up a conversation about the effects of porn addiction on families and communities.
“If anyone still doubted the devastation that porn addiction wreaks on those closest to the addict, behold the now-shattered marriage of Mr Weiner and Huma Abedin, a breakup that she initiated, reportedly, in shock at the disgraced ex-congressman’s inclusion of their four-year-old son in one lewd photo that he sent to a near-stranger.”
