Child abuse spikes with a rise in porn-made pedophiles

By Jonathon Van Maren

As the fallout from the revelations that Pornhub has regularly hosted videos of sex trafficking and rape continues, more evidence that pornography is fueling the victimization of minors is emerging. According to an extensive report in The Guardian—the U.K.’s left-wing standard-bearer—pornography has “become a gateway drug into child abuse.”

The report cites the observations of counselor Michael Sheath, a principal practitioner at the Lucy Faithful Foundation who has worked with men arrested for looking at child pornography for decades. “I have been working with men who abuse children for 33 years,” he told The Guardian. “For the first 15 years I worked with child molesters and I still do that, but now I also work with downloaders of child abuse imagery and online groomers.”

For years, experts have been warning that sustained porn use warps the mind and triggers interest in increasingly deviant material. Rates of child porn use have been consistently spiking, as have arrests for child abuse. Law enforcement is facing a surge in porn-made pedophiles—men who have been watching digital porn since eight or nine and were weaned on rape and sexual abuse videos.
