Pamela Anderson says “porn is for losers” in provocative opinion piece

Anderson co-wrote the article with US TV personality Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Pamela Anderson has co-written a provocative opinion piece urging men to give up watching pornography because it is for “losers”.

The Baywatch star and animal rights activist co-wrote the article, titled Take the Pledge: No More Indulging Porn, with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who is known in the US as a TV personality and author.

“This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays,” they write in The Wall Street Journal, arguing that porn has a “corrosive effect on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as husband, and, by extension, as father”.

They also warn “porn is for losers – a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality”.

Another section of the article features a series of rhetorical questions: “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? How many children will propel, warp-speed, into the dark side of adult sexuality by forced exposure to their fathers’ profanations?”

Anderson, who last year became the final woman to bare all for Playboy‘s now-defunct naked centrefold, recently joined the cast of the upcoming Baywatch movie. The big screen reboot starring Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is due out next year.
