WASHINGTON — The Family Research Council, in a study released Wednesday, says pornography is “not harmless escapism but relational and emotional poison.”

With the study, the FRC details the effects of pornography on marriages, children, communities and individuals, concluding that porn “corrodes the conscience, promotes distrust between husbands and wives and debases untold thousands of young women.”

The FRC also says that as porn sales increase, the marriage rate drops. It also says that women who engaged in cybersex had about 40 percent more offline sexual partners than women who did not engage in cybersex.

"The fact that marriage rates are dropping steadily is well known, but the impact of pornography use and its correlation to fractured families has been little discussed,” said Pat Fagan, who authored the study and serves as FRC's senior fellow and director of the Center for Research on Marriage and Religion.

"As this academic review reveals, pornography is creating a debt of the spirit and a cost in the lives of family members that rivals any deficit the federal government is producing.”

The release of the FRC study comes one day after University of Montreal researchers said they found that there is a seemingly low correlation between pornography consumption and pathological behavior because porn is so widely consumed.

A copy of the FRC study is available here.
