Rethink! 6 Thoughts to Rethink about Porn Actresses

Here are six thoughts about porn actresses.

Porn Actresses: Who she is? Who she is not?

1. The porn actress in this video IS a real yet broken woman who needs Jesus

“For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.” Rom 12:3

Note that this thought puts forward the idea in our head to think about the woman in this video- not you and your selfish desires.  This thought speaks to the very fact that in times of fantasizing we forget the spiritual and emotional needs of that woman. They are a real broken sinner who need a Savior. We need to remember that. Praying for that woman’s salvation is actually a very powerful weapon in your own battle for purity.

2. The porn actress in this video IS NOT your fantasy woman who lives for you.

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27

To objectify a women for you own selfish desires really speaks to how self centered we can be about our life, and importance. All of the opposite sex was not gifted for your own whims.  In fact God has designed – in the case of those who are to be married- only one to be your special life mate. (see post The tree of the knowledge of good and evil… and sex) Yet even then the marital relationship is not designed to center around your libido and sex life- it’s designed to center around Christ!

To objectify someone is to identify them from an external perspective. It bases everything about that person on their outside appearance or specific trait. Unfortunately now we have raised a generation of children who believe it is o.k. to be considered an object of lust and that its label is where we find significance, acceptance and meaning.   It takes no consideration to their soul needs, temperament, emotional make up, or their individual thoughts and opinions. For us to think of people  on such shallow grounds about a person is not just immature, it is sinful.

3. The porn actress in this video IS someone’s daughter or wife

“Do not rebuke an older man but encourage him as you would a father, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, in all purity. 1 Timothy 5:1-2

This truth helps in the strategic fight against the temptation  to engage your lust through a screen. You might be winning the battle of real life lust. Eye to eye people, day in and day out. You may be able to remember the dignity and respect you are to have with people you interact with.

But in the tech savvy screen addicted world of ours, it is easy to forget they are real people. Someone raised them. They are daughters. They are possibly someone’s wife… either now or later. They deserve respect, not a degrading lustful stare.

 4. The porn actress in this video IS NOT your wife.

“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.” Matthew 5:27,28

The actress in this video have beautiful traits, but objectifying them is not your right. We can acknowledge beauty and be respectful. God has wired us to appreciate beauty… in the context of purity and to be celebrated in a marital bond. She is not your wife to enjoy and live life with! So stop lusting!

 5. The porn actress in this video IS being abused before your very eyes.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

Is it good to for a woman (or even a man for that matter) to experience exploitation, be hopped up on medication and then  finally live in humiliation?

Now you might be saying, wait a minute, these women knew what they are getting into. Well I ask you, does their consent make it right for abuse to happen? As Christians, we cannot call evil, good no matter how something came about. Don’t let the morals of the society influence how the Scriptures call good and evil. Don’t confuse this matter with what God does in redeeming evil and suffering consequences and turning it around for good.( see Romans 8:28-32).

Consider the three things I just listed.

Exploitation: the very definition says, “the action or fact of treating someone unfairly in order to benefit from their work”. The sex industry benefits from the beauty and openness of performers to do anything to make money. They then turn it around and make 100 times more profits then what they spent on production because the demand is so high worldwide. Even on that simple fact, it is unfair. It is unfair and greedy on every level of the industry.

Medication: I’m not talking about  a prescription either. Drug abuse is rampant in the industry. Drug overdose has been the cause of many shortened lives in the industry. On a very simple level, alcohol abuse and chain smoking is needed to get through many of these scenes. It is not glamorous. It is not the way sex was designed by the Lord to be enjoyed. No matter how beautiful the masquerade, we cannot call this dark side of sex “good”.

Humiliation: Now, both physical and verbal aggression is the dominant trait in scenes from the top selling porn films.It happens right in front of you as you watch Yet the untold fact about humiliation is the longevity of digital films and pictures that is retained on the internet. Lives of girls who have moved beyond that”phase” of their life still haunt them. The exposure on the internet has ruin career dreams and possibilities. They have halted engagements of marriage and turned happy marriages into a tailspin as quick as a click of a computer mouse.

6. The porn actress in this video is not a nympho with a strong sex drive.

“And behold, the woman meets him, dressed as a prostitute, wily of heart.” Proverbs 7:10

Hollywood produced soft core and hardcore erotic films or photo shoots portray the image that sells to the base needs of the consumer. Women (and for that matter men) sell that image. It’s called acting… role playing… dressing up… pretending. They sell the glamour, freedom, and excitement of an unguarded heart while the camera is rolling. But when it is all said and done, the sparkle in their eye dims, they breakdown in a corner and hold in their hands the broken pieces of their heart.

An e-book was written called the Hardcore Truth (click here to receive it free)  in which the author interviewed a former producer (now a believer in Christ) in the porn industry. They talked about the 10 myths of the porn industry. One thing that was stated during the interview, “There are many several reasons why girls get into the porn industry, but a hardcore sex drive isn’t one of them.”

In fact many in the “softcore” films and pictures are lured in and then become addicted to… money. They are then strung along into “hardcore” with the promise of better money.

All porn actress begin to hate men and the lustful look in their eyes when they meet people on the  street—you know, that thing called real  life? Many porn actors become callous in their conscience of what they are doing. This in turn leads to a life of depression, drugs and desperation. It kills their sex life. In some cases it just simply kills them.

In summary:

A Porn Actress: She’s a real woman, who is not your wife and is lying to you.

As we Rethink  and continue to renew our thoughts about this matter, we look into the mirror of God’s word and consider what He is showing us.  God’s Word warns believers of the women who are deceptive and lying (Proverbs 6-7). God’s Word warns us of our own deceiving heart (Jeremiah 17:9). God’s word acknowledges the broken world we live and the result of sinful behavior. God’s is showing us not to deceive ourselves in order to find a satisfaction of fulfillment in something so harmful and shallow as the fantasy of pornography.  It harms as those who are involved: producer, performer, and consumer.
