Mr. Holder refuses to enforce existing federal obscenity laws against hardcore adult pornography, despite the fact that these laws have been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and effectively enforced by previous attorneys general.

Verizon pushes porn into our homes now through multiple channels. Not only do they provide hardcore pay-per-view movies through Fios, but they are also in the distribution business through their smartphones and tablets and as an Internet Service Provider. Verizon can offer to filter and block this content, yet provides very few options for those who do not want this material.

The world’s most popular social networking site has become a top place to trade pornography, child pornography and for sexual exploitation. Facebook’s guidelines prohibit such behavior, but Facebook is doing little to enforce them.

Google’s empire thrives on porn. Porn is shoved at kids today through YouTube, GooglePlay, Google Images and Google Ads. We urge Google to continue to improve their efforts to protect children and al who wish to be porn-free.

Many of our nation’s top schools are succumbing to student pressure to welcome so-called “sex week” celebrations to bring hardcore pornography, as well as pornographic displays for public consumption on campuses. Some schools even include lectures on sex by naked instructors and demonstrations encouraging students to engage in violent, torture sex. Yale University was the first to initiate Sex Week.

This hotel chain, like Hyatt, Starwood and many other top hotel chains, provides hardcore pornography movie choices; and its porn channels are often the first thing advertised when you turn on the TV.

One can hardly go on this popular social media blogging site without being bombarded with porn. Users must only be 13 and the filters do not work.

For years, ALA has worked to encourage public libraries to keep their computers unfiltered and allow patrons, including children, access to pornography.

The PlayStation 4 is the most popular game console used today, with over 4.2 million sales in 2013. Children under 18 are their main users. PlayStation’s livestreaming abilities are filling thousands of homes with live porn and hundreds of pornographic and sexually violent games are in the PlayStation Store.

This staple of the supermarket checkout line may be as pornographic as Playboy Magazine, but without the pictures. This publication has steadily declined from an inspirational women’s magazine into a full-on pornographic “how-to” sex guide, encouraging women to accept the pornified culture around them. What’s worse is that they specifically market their smut to teen girls.

This Fortune 500 company, operator of 689 retail bookstores and a very active website, is a major supplier of adult pornography and child erotica. They also regularly put pornography near the children’s sections in their stores and provide free, unfiltered porn publications on their Nook e-reader.

This bestselling book and coming movie are normalizing rape and sexual torture of women. Oprah Winfrey Network, Broadway and other mainstream outlets have even promoted this abusive lifestyle.

Why the Dirty Dozen List?

Common Sense, anecdotal evidence and scientific research all demonstrate that pornography is a harmful, mind-altering drug. Our nation is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography. Consequences include:

  • Children and adults developing life-long addictions to pornography;
  • On average, American children are seeing hardcore pornography at age 11 and often acting out what they see in porn;
  • Four out of five 16-year-olds now regularly access pornography online and many are developing life-long social/sexual problems as a result;
  • Violence against women, rape and other sex crimes are directly tied to the consumption of pornography;
  • 56% of divorces cite Internet pornography as a factor in the breakup;
  • There is increased demand for child pornography because many adult-porn users find they are no longer excited by adult images and move to child images;
  • Pornography is a major factor creating and driving demand for prostituted and trafficked women and children;
  • More and more young men are suffering from sexual dysfunction as a result from repeated and prolonged porn use.

In addition to the many proven harms of pornography, it is a violation of federal law to distribute obscene (hardcore adult pornography) material on the Internet, cable/satellite TV, hotel/motel TV, in retail shops, through the U.S. Mail, and by common carrier. Additionally, most states prohibit the distribution of obscene pornography. Despite pornography’s destructive force and the illegality of most pornography in the US, its availability is increasing.
