Pamela Anderson has suggested porn addiction is leading towards sexual violence against women and child abuse.

The model is continuing in her warnings against watching adult films, claiming addiction to porn is “infecting” relationships. 

In an essay co-written by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and published in the Wall Street Journal, Anderson and Boteach declared adult entertainment a “public hazard” they claimed had long-term, “corrosive” effects on a man’s soul and family life. Her essay was criticised by a number of adult actors and those working in the industry and deemed reductive and moralistic for blaming breakdowns in family life on porn consumption.

Appearing on Channel 4, Anderson said she was calling for a “sensual revolution”, claiming the sexual revolution “just gave us a lot of really bad sex”. 

 

Anderson said she is concerned the world “will forget how to make love”. 

“When you have a woman lying in bed in lingerie and you’re in the bath, locking the bathroom and looking at a computer, something’s wrong.

“I know I should probably disqualify myself from the conversation because I’m a Playboy playmate, I had a tape stolen from my house.

“But, people need more and more to get aroused. I think it’s leaning towards violence against women, rape, child abuse - I really think it has something to do with that.”

In a separate appearance on This Morning, she described the effect she believed porn had had on her own sex life. “Have you ever been treated like a porn star in bed? It’s not nice. I’ve been spat on and called nasty names. People think I am wild and crazy.”

She said she had also experienced a partner locking themselves in bathrooms to watch adult content.
