Today marks my 23rd birthday, and as an act of raising support for one of my favorite non-profits, @fightthenewdrug, I released a single on Noisetrade that is originally off my latest album. It's called, "The Good Fight", and you can download it today by visiting http://noisetrade.com/jakedamron/the-good-fight-single (LINK IN BIO). By trading some info, and by donating any amount of your choice, you will get the song and a copy of handwritten lyrics. All proceeds will go to "Fight The New Drug" as they continue to bring crucial awareness to one of the most destructive drugs in our day - pornography. According to recent data, 90% of young men age 18 have been exposed to porn - much of which is hard-core (meaning it often involves violence and overtly explicit imagery). Of the 90%, the average age these young men were sexualized by pornography was between 8-11 years old. Similarly, 60% of young women by the age of 18 have been exposed to porn as well. Almost 80% of this exposure, which isn't always voluntary, is happening in the perceived safety of their homes. Furthermore, studies have found that frequency of porn use correlates with depression, anxiety, stress, and social problems. Even moderate porn use is correlated with shrunken grey matter in parts of the brain that oversee cognitive function. Also, porn use has been found to influence some users sexual preferences, leaving them wanting what they've seen onscreen and significantly less satisfied with sex in real life. Among the effects of pornography are an increased negative attitude toward women, decreased empathy for victims of sexual violence, and an increase in dominating and sexually imposing behavior. If all this is not bad enough, the Department of Justice and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children both recognize that pornography is an element that adds to the serious problem of sex trafficking. These are just some of the reasons why pornography must be fought against! Will you join the fight?
