Actor Rick Schroder Releases Bizarre Trailer for Anti-Porn Propaganda Series 'Erotic Erosion'

LOS ANGELES — Former child actor and current anti-porn activist Rick Schroder is moving forward with “Erotic Erosion,” a new propaganda series targeting the adult industry.

“Erotic Erosion” is a partnership between the Reel American Heroes Foundation, which is Schroder’s nonprofit production company, and the Council on Pornography Reform (CPR), a religiously inspired anti-porn lobby he recently founded.

The Reel American Heroes Foundation website now features a bizarre, sensationalistic “Erotic Erosion” sizzle reel/trailer in which interviews with anti-porn activists are interspersed with disturbing footage of actors portraying people being abused, distressed people in agony and acts of violence.

The trailer also intercuts disjointed, jittery graphics with words and phrases like “trauma” and “social media,” images of brain scans purportedly showing damage produced by exposure to adult content, oddly lit images of strippers, people at a rave and even a rabbit-masked dancing furry in a rainbow tutu.

The website pitch for “Erotic Erosion” reads: “In a world that’s constantly evolving, few aspects of human society have transformed as dramatically as the realm of adult content. In the past century, adult content has become more and more accessible, first through still images, then magazines, and X-rated films. Today with the internet on cell phones, social media, and lack of restrictions on adult content, viewing pornography is almost inescapable. Adult content is being pushed on our children into our devices and our lives without our consent. But it doesn’t need to stay this way.”

The documentary series, the website adds, will explore “the ever-changing landscape of technology as it merges with America’s obsession with sex and how we can stop the Erotic Erosion of our moral foundation.”

Schroder's Personal War on Porn

As XBIZ reported, Schroder — whose Instagram account displays an image of a historically inaccurate, European-looking Jesus giving viewers the middle finger — emerged as a vocal anti-porn crusader in October, through widely quoted interviews revealing that CPR was behind a lengthy brief supporting Texas’ controversial age verification law, which mandates that adult websites post anti-porn propaganda.

Back in October, Schroder’s Council on Pornography Reform website was nonfunctional and the group did not appear to have had an online footprint in nonprofit databases before filing the brief in Texas. The CPR website went live sometime in the past four months.

Schroder has asserted that adult content is not constitutionally protected free speech, despite the courts having established this several decades ago, and has called pornography “a weapon system against God, against common sense. It’s a sickness, it’s a disease and it’s permeated us for too long, and it doesn’t have to stay this way.”

“It’s absolutely absurd that they use the First Amendment and freedom of speech as political speech, as the justification for pushing perversion and pornography into our homes, into our pockets,” Schroder told conservative outlet The Western Journal, which originated coverage of the Texas filing and describes itself as “upholding traditional Christian values as articulated in the Bible.”

The former child actor contended that although the Texas law explicitly addresses screening minors, “We need to go further than age verification.”
