Shocking Porn ‘Epidemic’ Stats Reveal Details About Christian Consumption

“The fact is that we have many people who are professing Christian, yet they are not actually Christians at all. There is a vast difference between a Christian who stumbles over sin and then is genuinely humble and repentant, nd a professing Christian who habitually practices something as obviously sinful as porn. Most of these people are tares among the wheat.” Timothy Jerry

Shocking porn consumption statistics released earlier this month show that an almost identical proportion of Christian men report watching smut each month as their non-Christian counterparts.
In a survey undertaken by Proven Men Ministries in collaboration with the Barna Group, it was found that 15 percent of self-identified Christian men view pornography several times each month compared to 14 percent of non-Christian men.

Additionally, 3 percent of non-Christian men say that they look at smut several times a day compared to 7 percent of Christian men. The below table provides a more expanded comparative breakdown:

Overall, 64 percent of American men reported that they view porn at least monthly and 18 percent of all men said they are either addicted or unsure if they’re dependent upon smut; this proportion jumped to 33 percent for men between the ages of 18 and 30.
There are some profound differences between the genders, though.

Only two in 10 women report looking at porn monthly. While 11 percent of non-Christian women say they look at adult entertainment several times per month only 3 percent of Christian women report the same, exposing a stark difference between the two cohorts:

Proven Men Ministries founder Joel Hesch, who sponsored the survey, said the results prove that there’s an epidemic of sorts unfolding, with porn draining peoples’ “time, energy and resources” if addiction is left unchecked.

“What we are seeing can almost be described as epidemic,” he said in a press release. ”Viewing pornography can quickly turn into a very real addiction. Just like drug or alcohol use, what starts off as a seemingly innocent or fun act can quickly spiral out of control.”

Results were derived from a nationally representative sample of 1,000 adults across the U.S., with a sampling error of ±3.1 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.

Hesch and his group aren’t alone. As TheBlaze recently reported, Fight the New Drug, an organization that also opposes porn, believes that smut isn’t merely a moral stumbling block, but that it’s also a public health conundrum that poses some serious risks to the human brain and society.

“The more harmful effects occur [in porn addiction] with its relation to our intimate relationships and our overarching society,” Olsen said. “Studies have shown us that individuals that regularly consume pornography can end up preferring the computer screen to a human being to get their sexual fix.”
