People always try to tell me that pornography is fine in moderation and things like that, and honestly, that would be true. But only if they were referring to themselves. Have they ever thought about what kind of horrible, disgusting things go on in the industry? Women are constantly being abused, with them being spat on, strangled, and many things that are even worse. How is porn "fine" when stuff like that is going on? What if they had to endure what a lot of the performers go through? Then they would understand. I guess it's just hard to understand what's happening when you routinely objectify the people in the videos. Seriously, sometimes I wonder if pornography should be banned. What good does it contribute to the world?! All it does is waste your time, get you addicted, contribute to human trafficking, and hijack people's sexuality. When are people going to wake up and realize what it does to people? And you can't even criticize it without everyone calling you a prude. So many people my age have grown up with this stuff, I hope they find help. Each and everyone of them.

Sorry. I just really feel for this.

Can see why you dislike it, but the thing is, almost everyone watches porn, women included. So if it's sexist, then women aren't any less guilty of it than men are.
And yes, things like child / animal porn, revenge porn, human trafficking, etc. are awful, but you can't hold the sites to which those are uploaded responsible for the production of it, for the same reason you can't hold beer breweries responsible for one's alcoholism. (Cigarettes are a different thing, since these are deliberately made to be as addictive as possible, and they are harmful regardless the quantity.) The only effective countermeasure would be to delete those videos and ban the producers.

It might be because of my atheism and somewhat hedonistic approach to life, but I don't feel guilty for watching porn, for the same way as I don't feel guilty for not being vegetarian or driving a car. (The latter of which is something I already don't do much anyway.) Nor am I very susceptible to the 'guilt-talking' techniques of SJW types. But that's another thing.

Regarding the whole porn thing, I don't see how it can be damaging as long as you know your limits. Everything in moderation.
And at that, the vast majority of mainstream porn is just 'meh' to me, so I'm already pretty immune to porn addiction I guess.

I understand where you're coming from, but I guess the fact that everyone watches it is what upsets me. It's a drug that preys on one of man's most basic instincts: to reproduce. It gets you when you're just an innocent teenager and changes your mindset for the rest of your life, allowing you to waste precious time that could be used for something actually useful, unless you get help, that is. It just makes me sad. And sure, alcohol companies cannot control how people use their products, but think about this: if you're a gigantic porn website, with so much influence over people and visitors everyday, and yet you have literal child porn on your site, then the least you could do is have reliable verification to make sure this doesn't happen. I feel like that part is their responsibility. If this is the way Pornhub runs itself, then perhaps they should just be shut down. What if YouTube had videos of horribly gruesome acts put on their site? Then of course it would be their job to take it down. Porn sites have created a place for people to post malicious content, and they're not doing a thing about it! They just create a demand for more and more degenerate content. Famous people get called out for being pedophiles, but a website does this and it's suddenly okay? I just don't get it. Porn consumers wouldn't be having fun if they had to endure even half of what people in the industry go through. I feel like moderation doesn't matter if this is happening. But that's just what I think.

I understand what you mean, and agree that porn sites should monitor their content more, but taking down one of the largest and most visited websites in the world? That's just not gonna happen. And if porn is a drug that preys on man's instinct to reproduce - which it doesn't really; it only satisfies one's desire for one of our many forms of pleasure - then masturbating and all non-reproductive sex shouldn't be allowed either, which is impossible to make laws for.

Also, speaking from experience, I have never seen any content on Pornhub that was obviously illegal, which means there sure is content control.

Yeah, I guess I did word that kind of weird. It's just that the brain is naturally programmed to see sexual imagery and want it, since that's how we've stayed alive as a species. But the brain is not programmed to be so overwhelmed as porn makes us. Our brains are based on having so many mates, just as we did back in the prehistoric times, so as a result, when you have a virtually countless number of sexual videos and images literally at your fingertips, then of course people are going to get addicted and it's going to be a thing that people routinely give into, and that's just the sad truth, as much as I don't like it. It's not like the old days when you had one dirty magazine and that was it. Now you can see women getting strangled and the most disgusting, unnatural fetishes from wherever you want, and everyone is fine with it. Porn takes sex and turns it into an awful, perverted thing. I don't have any problem with casual sex or masturbation themselves, as long as they are done within reason and not addictively, but porn is a whole other beast because of the endless pursue of novelty.
