Well, according to Dr. Marty Klein, a certified sex therapist and licensed marriage and family therapist with more than three decades of experience, we already know the answer. In his fascinating book His Porn, Her Pain: Confronting America's PornPanic with Honest Talk about Sex, he argues that pornography is not the problem that many people think it is. Instead, he contends that we are suffering from a "PornPanic" that has demonized the recreation of some 60 million Americans. In this article, we will explore what is PornPanic, how it affects individuals and society, what Klein says about it, and how we can heal America's obsession with porn by engaging in honest talk about sex. ## What is PornPanic? PornPanic is a term coined by Klein to describe a moral panic over pornography use and its perceived harms. A moral panic is a widespread fear or anxiety over something that threatens the values or norms of a society. In the case of PornPanic, the something is pornography, which is seen as a threat to sexual morality, family stability, public health, and social order. Some examples of PornPanic in media, politics, religion, and culture are: - The claim that pornography is a "public health crisis" that causes addiction, violence, trafficking, rape, divorce, child abuse, erectile dysfunction, brain damage, and other ills - The portrayal of pornography as a "war on women" that objectifies, degrades, exploits, and harms women - The condemnation of pornography as a "sin" that corrupts the soul and leads to eternal damnation - The censorship of pornography as a "danger" that needs to be banned or restricted for the sake of children and society PornPanic is fueled by misinformation, myths, and junk science that are often repeated and amplified by various groups and individuals who have a vested interest in creating fear and shame around sexuality. Some of these groups and individuals are: - Religious groups and leaders who want to impose their moral values and beliefs on others - Politicians and activists who want to gain votes, power, or money by exploiting people's emotions and fears - Anti-porn feminists who want to challenge the patriarchy and male dominance by attacking one of its symbols - Marriage counselors and therapists who want to sell their services and products by diagnosing and treating a nonexistent problem ## How Does PornPanic Affect Individuals and Society? PornPanic has negative impacts on sexual health, education, and rights. It prevents people from accessing accurate, comprehensive, and inclusive information about sexuality and pornography. It promotes unrealistic, rigid, and harmful expectations and standards of sexual behavior and performance. It stigmatizes, marginalizes, and discriminates against people who have diverse sexual orientations, identities, expressions, and preferences. It undermines the principles of consent, autonomy, privacy, and diversity that are essential for sexual well-being. PornPanic also creates shame, guilt, fear, and conflict among porn users and their partners. It makes people feel bad about themselves for enjoying something that is natural, normal, and harmless. It makes people doubt their own sexual adequacy, attractiveness, and compatibility. It makes people hide their porn use from their partners or lie about it. It makes people judge their partners for their porn use or preferences. It makes people blame porn for their relationship problems or personal issues. PornPanic also undermines personal autonomy, diversity, and freedom of expression. It limits people's choices and options to express themselves sexually in ways that suit them. It denies people's right to access and enjoy legal and consensual sexual material that reflects their tastes and interests. It silences people's voices and opinions about sexuality and pornography. It suppresses people's creativity and innovation in producing and consuming sexual content. ## What Does Marty Klein Say About PornPanic? In his book His Porn, Her Pain: Confronting America's PornPanic with Honest Talk about Sex, Klein challenges the common belief that pornography is unilaterally harmful to individuals and our society. He addresses common concerns and debunks widely believed myths about pornography using clear reasoning, clinical expertise, and political savvy. He explains how to resolve conflicts about pornography without demonizing porn or porn users. He shows how to heal America's obsession with porn by engaging in honest talk about sex. Some of the main points of Klein's book are: - Pornography is not a new phenomenon; it has been around for thousands of years in various forms and media - Pornography is not a single entity; it is a diverse and dynamic genre of entertainment that caters to different audiences, purposes, and contexts - Pornography is not a reality; it is a fantasy that uses symbols, codes, conventions, and exaggerations to create arousal - Pornography is not a cause; it is a symptom of underlying issues such as poor communication, low self-esteem, sexual ignorance, or dissatisfaction - Pornography is not an addiction; it is a habit that can be changed or modified if desired - Pornography is not a threat; it is an opportunity to learn about oneself, one's partner, one's sexuality, and one's culture Klein has the credentials to back up his arguments. He is a certified sex therapist (CST) by the American Association of Sexuality Educators Counselors & Therapists (AASECT) since 1984. He is also a licensed marriage & family therapist (LMFT) by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences since 1985. He has written seven books on sexuality issues including America's War on Sex: The Attack on Law Lust & Liberty (2006) which won the prestigious Book of the Year Award from AASECT in 2007. He has also appeared in many media outlets such as CNN, NPR, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Playboy Magazine, Cosmopolitan Magazine, and The Huffington Post. Klein uses an evidence-based approach to support his claims. He cites scientific research from various fields such as psychology, sociology, neuroscience, anthropology, and history. He also draws from his own clinical experience of working with thousands of clients who have struggled with pornography issues. He challenges the sources of misinformation, myths, and junk science that fuel PornPanic, such as religious dogma, political propaganda, feminist ideology, and pseudoscientific theories. ## How Can We Heal America's Obsession with Porn? Klein's solution to heal America's obsession with porn is to engage in honest talk about sex. He believes that honest talk about sex can resolve the conflicts, anxieties, and misunderstandings that often arise around pornography.
