DR. SHARON MITCHELL, FORMER PORN STAR AND FOUNDER OF AIM (ADULT INDUSTRY MEDICAL HEALTHCARE) MAKES FALSE PROMISES
STD’S AMONG PORN STARS According to LACDPH in a report in 2009: Since 2004 2,396 cases of Chlamydia 1,389 cases of gonorrhea 31 cases of HIV among performers since 2004 Porn performers experience higher rates of infection (20%) than general public (2.4%) Chlamydia and gonorrhea among performers is 10X greater than that of LA County 20-24 year olds. 70% of infections in the porn industry occur in females
LAWS AND HEALTH AND SAFETY Cal/OSHA requires porn performers to use condoms but porn industry refuses to obey any safety and health laws Measure B passed in Los Angeles County and is now mandatory to use condoms and grant government access to porn sets. No wonder pornographers are threatening to leave California.
QUOTES BY PORNOGRAPHERS Pornographer Vince Vouyer promoting his latest online video release said, “The girls get torn up like usual.” Pornographer Brandon Iron: “Where else but in porn can you see a guy who just met a girl that day crack her around, choke her out.” Pornographer Paul Thomas: “Even the mildest pornography is shocking to the average person. I’m surprised it’s legal.” Pornographer Lex Steele: “I find myself not that much unlike the slaves and slave traders of some 400 years ago. I participate in the most heinous of ALL trades- THE BUYING AND SELLING OF HUMAN FLESH. I trade my own flesh for monetary compensation and I sell the flesh of others for the same.”
QUOTES BY PORN STARS "When I arrived to the set I expected to do a vaginal girl boy scene. But during the scene a male porn star forced himself anally into me and would not stop. I yelled at him to stop and screamed 'No' over and over but he would not stop. The pain became too much and I was in shock and my body went limp."- Corina Taylor I did around 60 films in the time I was in porn and managed to get herpes and had gonorrhea or chlamydia countless times. – Jessie Summers "Guys punching you in the face. You have semen from many guys all over your face, in your eyes. You get ripped. Your insides can come out of you. It's never ending." - Jersey Jaxin "I became horribly addicted to heroin and crack. I overdosed at least 3 times, had tricks pull knives on me, have been beaten half to death- the only reason I am still here is God. - Becca Brat
QUOTES BY PORN STARS "My first movie I was treated very rough by 3 guys. They pounded on me, gagged me with their penises, and tossed me around like I was a ball! I was sore, hurting and could barely walk. - Alexa Milano My initiation into prostitution was a gang rape by five men, arranged by Mr. Traynor. It was the turning point in my life. He threatened to shoot me with the pistol if I didn't go through with it. I engaged in sex acts for pornography against my will to avoid being killed. The lives of my family were threatened. – Linda Lovelace "Porn isn’t a safe business. I thought porn people were the cleanest people in the world.” - Lara Roxx, diagnosed with HIV in 2004 outbreak.” "The truth is I let my lifestyle get the best of me. I hate life. I'm a mess. A disaster. I've attempted suicide many times." "No one cares about a dead porn star or stripper. - Neesa
PORN IS SEX TRAFFICKING SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIMS Women are lured in, coerced and forced to do sex acts they never agreed to. Women are given a false sense of security about their health and safety Women are lied to about the risks of STDs Women are threatened by agents, porn producers, directors Women in porn have no idea they are victims of sex trafficking
DEAD PORN STARS DEATH 230 porn stars died prematurely between 2003 – 2014 AIDS: 18 DRUGS: 41 SUICIDES: 38 HOMICIDES: 21 ACCIDENTAL: 16 MEDICAL: 69 UNKNOWN: 27 THE AVERAGE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF A PORN PERFORMER IS ONLY 36.2 YEARS WHEREAS THE AVERAGE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF AN AMERICAN IS 78.6 YEARS.
PORN STAR ESCORTS PROSTUTION Porn star put up ads on the internet advertising up to $3,000 an hour for prostitution and name it as “escorting” or “companionship” as to escape the law. Porn stars prefer prostitution over the abuse and degradation and violence on the porn set.
MENTAL ILLNESS POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER In a study to be presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association in San Francisco in 1998, researchers interviewed almost 500 prostitutes from around the world and discovered that two-thirds suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. In contrast, the condition is found in less than 5 percent of the general population. The study found that the prostitutes averaged a slightly more severe form of the disease than even Vietnam veterans seeking treatment for the condition. Since porn stars are deemed prostitutes they definitely have higher rates of post- traumatic stress disorder than even combat veterans. Plus, PTSD is exacerbated in female porn stars because the porn set is a war zone where women are strangled, battered, gagged by penises, vaginally and anally raped and severely traumatized. Women in porn are also subjected to bodily fluids such as blood, feces, urine and seminal and vaginal fluids due to being forced to have unprotected sex by pornographers aka pimps.
Don’t believe the lie. Pornography is America’s modern day slave trade of young human flesh.
The word pornography, derived from the Greek porne (“prostitute”) and graphein (“to write”), was originally defined as any work of art or literature depicting the life of prostitutes. Note: “Pornography” is derived from and formed from the Greek words “prostitution” + “graphy”. (Porne graphein = PORNOGRAPHY According to HELPS Word studies, Strong’s Greek Concordance 4202, the word porneia (the root of the English terms "pornography, pornographic) which is derived from pernaō, "to sell off") – properly, a selling off (surrendering) of sexual purity; promiscuity of any (every) type. Greek4203. porneuo, porn-yoo'-o; from Grk4204; to act the harlot, i.e. (lit.) indulge unlawful lust (of either sex), or (fig.) practice idolatry:-commit (fornication). WHAT IS PORNOGRAPHY?
Several specific sexual acts are forbidden in the Bible: Homosexuality Bestiality (sex with animals) Incest (sexual relations with close family members, including your mother, sister, niece, aunt, daughter-in-law, and sister-in-law) Fornication (sexual relations outside of marriage) Adultery (sexual relations with another person's spouse), Unlawful lust Rape Orgies The only acceptable form of sexual expression—between a married husband and wife—is virtually absent in pornography. So, virtually all the acts pornography depicts are prohibited in the Bible. PROHIBITED ACTS OF SEX IN THE BIBLE
Job 31:1-3a – I" have made a covenant with my eyes. How then could I look at a young woman? For what portion would I have from God above, or what inheritance from the Almighty on high? Doesn’t disaster come to the unjust and misfortune to evildoers? Matthew 5:27 – 27, 28 - You have heard that it was said, Don't commit adultery. But I say to you that every man who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery in his heart. DON’T EVEN LOOK

PORN: THE SIN AGAINST THE BODY Sex sin is unique in that we commit it against our own bodies - 1 Corinthians 6:15 -17 ESV 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” 17 But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. This is the only sin, he means, which by its very nature alienates the body from Christ, its proper Partner. By this sin a man detaches himself from Christ; he professes to be united to what is incompatible with Christ. – Marcus Dods: The First Epistle to the Corinthians He sins against his own body; he defiles it, he degrades it, making it one with the body of that vile creature with whom he sins. - Matthew Henry's Commentary
THE GOD OF PORN: SATAN In Corinth, most of the prostitutes were slave women attached to the service of a pagan temple. It was commonly known that any man having sexual relations with these sacred prostitutes entered into communion with the god whom they served - New Interpreter's One-Volume Commentary on the Bible WHAT GOD DO YOU THINK PORN STARS SERVE?

Porn Star Bree Olson sacrifices herself on an altar to Satan in the trailer, "Sexy as Hell," to promote the 2013 porn awards. Porn Star Christy Mack in "Satanic Sex Nun."

WHEN SOMENONE VIEWS AND PARTICIPATES IN PORNOGRAPHY THEY ARE SERVING AND COMMUNING WITH THE SAME GOD THAT PORN STARS AND PORNOGRAPHERS DO.
TEARING AWAY FROM CHRIST A sexual offender “destroys himself” (Prov 6:32). Paul declares sexual sin to be profoundly and even uniquely self-destructive. The major force of this verse is that since the Christian is now part of Christ, the practice at issue in these verses is the “tearing of the body away from the body of Christ”. – The First Epistle to the Corinthians: A Commentary of the Greek Text Porneia (pornography) is the invasion of the body and the tearing away from Christ.
SATAN’S ATTACK PLAN The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. - John 10:10 (ESV) Satan’s main goal is to steal away the Bride from Christ. Satan’s highest ambition is for Christ to come back for no Church. The only way He can accomplish this goal is through fornication (porne) because God’s Word emphatically states that Christians who commit porne (sexual sin in any form including unlawful lust) become disunited with Christ and are no longer one flesh with the Lord but become one flesh with a prostitute whose god is Satan. The Christian communes with Satan through the act of fornication (porne). “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell. - Matthew 5:27-30 (ESV)
RETURN TO GOD "Yet even now," declares the LORD, "Return to Me with all your heart, And with fasting, weeping and mourning; And rend your heart and not your garments." Now return to the LORD your God, For He is gracious and compassionate, Slow to anger, abounding in loving kindness And relenting of evil. – Joel 2:12 For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy to all them that call on you. – Psalm 86:5 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. – Hebrews 4:16 Recognize that victory over addiction will be a marathon, not a sprint. "A righteous man falls seven times, and rises again" – Proverbs 24:16
POUR IN GOD’S WORD Joshua 1:8 - This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Psalms 119:105 - Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Isaiah 55:11 - So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
FORGIVEN THROUGH JESUS CHRIST My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 1 John 2:1 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. - 1 Timothy 15 - 16 Commentary from The Normal Christian Life: "Christ having become a high priest...through his own blood, entered in once for all into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption" (Hebrews 9:11,12). He was Redeemer once. He has been High Priest and Advocate for nearly two thousand years. He stands there in the presence of God, and "he is the propitiation for our sins" (1 John 2:1,2). Note the words of Hebrews 9:14: "How much more shall the blood of Christ..." This underlines the sufficiency of His ministry. It is enough for God.
