Pamela Anderson and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach Urge People to Give Up Porn

A rabbi and a former Playboy model have teamed up to urge people, and particularly men, to give up pornography once and for all.

In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal this week, Pamela Anderson and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach warn of pornography’s “corrosive effect on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as husband, and, by extension, as father.”

“Simply put, we must educate ourselves and our children to understand that porn is for losers — a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality,” the pair argue.

The op-ed specifically cites the recently renewed controversy of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who was found for a third time earlier this week to have allegedly sent lewd images of himself via text message. In the wake of the scandal, Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, announced that she would separate from him.

Boteach and Anderson believe the Weiner episode is representative of the “addictive dangers of pornography.”

“The march of technology is irreversible and we aren’t so naive as to believe that any kind of imposed regulation could ever reseal the Pandora’s box of pornography,” the pair wrote. “What is required is an honest dialogue about what we are witnessing—the true nature and danger of porn—and an honor code to tamp it down in the collective interests of our well-being as individuals, as families and as communities.”
