Former Playboy model Pamela Anderson has written an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal, in conjunction with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, in which they decry the harmful effects of pornography and urge men to stop watching it.

In their piece, which went live on Wednesday (August 31), the Baywatch star and Boteach claim that porn has a “corrosive effect on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as a husband, and by extension, as father.”

The pair cite disgraced politician Anthony Weiner's latest sexting scandal as an example of the adverse effects of porn consumption (Weiner's specific case has nothing to do with pornography).

“This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays,” the op-ed continues via US Weekly. “How many families will suffer? How many marriages will implode? How many talented men will scrap their most important relationships and careers for a brief onanistic thrill?”

Anderson and Boteach reference Weiner's scandal -- in which he allegedly sent sexually explicit photos and texts to yet another woman online, causing his wife Huma Abedin to announce her separation from the former congressman, as The New York Times reports -- and blamed pornography for the dissolution of Weiner's marriage, rather than his actual behavior.

“If anyone still doubted the devastation that porn addiction wreaks on those closest to the addict," they wrote, "behold the now-shattered marriage of Mr. Weiner and Huma Abedin, a breakup that she initiated…in shock at the disgraced ex-congressman’s inclusion of their 4-year-old son in one lewd photo that he sent to a near-stranger.”

The pair also compare porn consumption to drug addiction, inferring that the Internet is heavily to blame with its quick and easy access to a wealth of salacious videos and images.

"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 wrote. "They are the crack babies of porn."

In other words, the pair wants readers to "understand that porn is for losers—a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality."
