You’ve come a long way, Pamela Anderson.
The former Playboy model, 49, teamed up with Rabbi Schmuley Boteach to pen an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal called “Take The Pledge,” essentially warning people about the “addictive dangers of pornography” on Wednesday, basically saying porn degrades the family and messes up unions between people. It comes on the heels of former congressman/high grossness Anthony Weiner was caught in yet another sexting scandal. There’s anti-porn inspiration EVERYWHERE! Check the highlights:
“This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays,” the pair continued. “How many families will suffer? How many marriages will implode? How many talented men will scrap their most important relationships and careers for a brief onanistic thrill?”
“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 Abedin, a breakup that she initiated … in shock at the disgraced ex-congressman’s inclusion of their 4-year-old son in one lewd photo that he sent to a near-stranger,” Anderson and Boteach wrote.
But the duo didn’t end there. They also warned that children raised in the current digital environment will “become adults inured to intimacy and in need of even greater graphic stimulation. They are the crack babies of porn.”
So how to address this? According to Anderson and Boteach, “We must educate ourselves and our children to understand that porn is for losers — a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to rep the ample rewards of healthy sexuality.”

…says someone who posed for 14 Playboy covers (including the magazine’s January/February 2016 issue, its final nude issue). I wonder where Pam draws the line between nude photography and porn. Seems like an interesting choice for her to co-write this piece…
