    One thought on “The Porn Myth: Exposing the Reality Behind the Fantasy of Pornography”

    1. Highly recommended. Author Matt Fradd succeeds at the goal he sets out to accomplish: make a non-religious argument that porn is bad. To some that may like a no-brainer, but it's not. There are many cultural myths about sex and porn, and a glimpse at this book's table of contents illustrates that. Even to a convinced reader, exploring the social and cultural myths about porn in light of recent social and scientific research, has only increased my hatred for it. Some might say the arguments the a [...]

    2. It is an interesting book, a good start for those who claim that porn has no effect on our life (Brain, relationships, children, couple etc.) full of resources and well documented, the author puts a lot of effort and research in this book and it shows on every page.Some of my favorite quotes:"Lewis offered some insights about masturbation. He said that a man’s sexual appetite is meant to lead him out of himself, to lead him into being a self-gift that both completes and corrects his personalit [...]

    3. Quite an important work considering the science behind Porn addiction. Too many men and women get involved in this. Why is it harmful? What happens to the brain when a man is "turned on" to the pornography on his phone or desktop? Not only is science against porn, but the actresses in these porn dramas are ruthlessly treated and some have gone to the hospital after going through this ordeal, desperate for money and then sorry they did it. Male porn stars ravaged by STDs and women damaged for lif [...]

    4. A little bit repetitive but I'm think is a very good book. The author, who is catholic, try to criticize the porn from a non-religious perspective and I think it did fairly well (unlike other ocassions when religious author try to criticize something, but his conservativism flourish). I'm not very religious, I'm not conservative, and I can say this book has some uncomfortable truths about porn.

    5. While the points that Fradd makes are clear and valid, there is a tinge of redundancy and as you get deeper into the book there is a bit of a religious angle. Still, very important book, the far off effects of the internet porn revolution are shrouded in mystery and we need to start taking measures now as a culture.

    6. Great book clearing up that unlike what society tells people, porn actually is very harmful to individuals and their relationships. Also, good at making clear that porn can actually turn into an addiction and not just a bad choice that one continually keeps making.

    7. A short book but one that packs a punch. It won't fail to make you think - I learned a lot by reading it. This is an intelligent, comprehensive analysis of not only pornography use and its impacts but also of the gigantic porn industry itself. There are about 30 or so myths, each with a few pages of explanation and evidence against them. If you're non-religious, don't let the fact that the author is Catholic put you off. He is mindful not to let this cloud his arguments the vast majority of the [...]

    8. This is a truly chilling, but important book. In a society obsessed with sex, books like these are so important, even if you don't subscribe to any type of religious belief against consuming porn. Personally, I've been hurt by the effects of pornography in my family and I appreciate that now studies and research are going on into the effects of this dangerous addiction. I highly recommend this book!

    9. There are some great information and facts in the book, but the reasoning line is weak at best. Rather than providing statistical information and comprehensive analysis of the issue, it becomes a confirmation bias festival. Providing cherry-picked info most of the time only to the benefit of the writer's preconceptions. If you like to see scientific analysis and well-formed arguments you'll be probably disappointed.

    10. Great and to the pointI believe probably tere ain't no other book around that can give you such a complete and scientifically supported picture of the effects of porn. A big plus is that the book structure is such that it goes straight to the facts without feeling all "in your face". This lets the book be incredibly short and at the same time dense in content.
