Pamela Anderson, an actress and model famous for posing in Playboy magazine, is now speaking out about the dangers of pornography. Anderson and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach have published an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal referencing the multiple sexting scandals involving former congressman Anthony Weiner, the most recent, which led to his wife Huma Abedin to announce that their marriage is ending.

The piece is behind a pay-wall, but it’s worth reading if you are a WSJ subscriber.

They wrote, “If anyone still doubted the devastation that porn addiction wreaks on those closest to the addict, behold the now-shattered marriage of Mr. Weiner and Huma Abedi.”

The duo said “we have often warned about pornography’s corrosive effects on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as husband and, by extension, as father,” calling porn “a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness.”

In their piece, they cited studies that show how the cultural “experiment in mass debasement” has led millions to regularly consume porn, and how many have attempted to stop, but can’t. They wrote, “How many families will suffer? How many marriages will implode?”

Ultimately, Anderson and Shmuley wrote that people need to be educated about the dangers of porn, and that its easy access is a legitimate threat to society.

It’s an articulate and urgent call to address the porn crisis—especially coming from a former Playboy model.
