Is pornography more harmful both to yourself and your partner, than beneficial? I was originally contemplating to make this a poll but I felt that everybody's view of pornography is extremely personal so trying to squeeze in the possible choices would be very limiting. I used to be a firm believer that pornography was beneficial provided that it benefited both parties. But after realizing what I did during this time I am spending apart from my wife, I am deeply convinced that pornography is destructive because its feeds on selfishness and satisfies lust. That no matter how much one tries to make an excuse that pornography is okay and if it's ever harmful, it only harms the person engaged in it. After many years of being addicted to pornography I finally embraced my addiction and let it go. It is very difficult but with spiritual strength it is possible. Your thoughts on this?
