Greg, the most successful male adult film star of all time, tells his story in “The World”

The third of three short films on the harm of pornography from a group called Fight the New Drug is The World: how pornography can affect society.

You need a strong stomach to view this. Not because there are salacious images – there aren’t any – but because several women and a guy relate their experiences as “porn stars”, small cogs in the US$97 billion pornography industry. I found it almost unbearably painful to watch these young people tell their stories.

The theme of the final film is that pornography, prostitution and sex trafficking are all linked in a symbiotic relationship. Behind the degradation and violence on computer screens are real people who are being exploited. Pornography actually promotes sexual violence. As one of the experts in the film points out, pornographers are basically bragging about the sexual violence which #MeToo activists deplore. They’re profiting from trauma, pain and humiliation.

Like the other two films, The World is excellent stuff: great information, authoritative voices, positive messages. Every parent and every teacher should watch it.

The trailer is below. If you’re interested in seeing the full film, visit its website, Heart, Brain, World and follow the prompts. You’ll have to leave your name and email. Watching the films is free for individuals. For public screenings for groups, it costs US$49.99.
