Pamela Anderson, who appeared on more Playboy covers than any other model in the magazine’s history, has co-written a Wall Street Journal op-ed slamming pornography as “a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality.” In essence, “porn is for losers,” Anderson and rabbi and author Shmuley Boteach wrote.

“From our respective positions of rabbi-counselor and former Playboy model and actress, we have often warned about pornography’s corrosive effects on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as husband and, by extension, as father,” the unlikely duo continued. “This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays.”

Inspired by the continued sexting troubles of Anthony Weiner, Anderson and Boteach compared the addiction to pornography to that of narcotics. “Nine percent of porn users said they had tried unsuccessfully to stop — an indication of addiction that is all the more startling when you consider that the dependency rate among people who try marijuana is the same — 9 percent — and not much higher among those who try cocaine (15 percent),” they wrote.

“But it is a fair guess that whereas drug-dependency data are mostly stable, the incidence of porn addiction will only spiral as the children now being raised in an environment of wall-to-wall, digitized sexual images become adults inured to intimacy and in need of even greater graphic stimulation. They are the crack babies of porn.”

To replace antiquated pornography, Anderson and Boteach instead suggest a “sensual revolution” that would instead focus on eroticism. “The ubiquity of porn is an outgrowth of the sexual revolution that began a half-century ago and which, with gender rights and freedoms now having been established, has arguably run its course,” they wrote. “Now is the time for an epochal shift in our private and public lives. Call it a ‘sensual revolution.'”

Full-frontal nudity and one-for-the-money shots — these movies pushed the envelope and still played multiplexes. Watch here.
