OUR STORYPornography used to be a matter of personal opinion. Some people felt it was natural, normal, and even expected it to be consumed. Others felt it was “bad” or “wrong” due to their own religious beliefs or political views. However, few people, if any, seemed to have concrete evidence to support their points of view.
As young college students not too long ago, we came across the recent science of how porn affects the brain and we were shocked! After further study we began to find that porn not only had negative effects on the individual, but that pornography’s influence was causing huge problems in relationships, tearing apart families and that production of pornography was often inseparably connected to the world of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. The research was clear that pornography has negative neurological effects, is damaging to relationships, and is impacting our society as a whole. Most of all, we couldn’t believe that all this was happening and nobody was talking about it! We quickly became passionate about educating the world (specifically teens) and raising awareness on the issue. In 2009, we officially became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and began this campaign.
We are the first generation in the history of the world to face the issue of pornography to this intensity and scale. We’re also the first generation with a scientific, fact-based understanding of the harm pornography can do. With that knowledge, we feel the responsibility to share with others that porn harms the brain, damages relationships, and affects society as a whole. Our movement uses nothing but science, research, and personal accounts to bring this issue out into the open and get people talking about something that has previously been considered taboo.
By choosing to Fight pornography, FTND followers can help shape their own lives for the better. By spreading this message to others however, they hold the power to shape history. From that simple idea, Fight the New Drug and the ‘Porn Kills Love’ movement was born.
WE ARE THE FIRST GENERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD TO FACE THE ISSUE OF PORNOGRAPHY TO THIS INTENSITY AND SCALE. WE’RE ALSO THE FIRST GENERATION WITH A SCIENTIFIC, FACT-BASED UNDERSTANDING OF THE HARM PORNOGRAPHY CAN DO.
