AUDIO: Porn's impact on modern sexuality. Is pornography toxic?

(AirTalk) Today's in-your-face ubiquity of pornography inspired the movie "Don Jon" about a young man so addicted to porn it interferes with his relationships. Perhaps... Statistics on pornography consumption are sketchy at best, thanks to unreliable self-reporting. What we do know is the business of porn, especially on the Web, has been booming, which means many Americans must be clicking and watching. Google data from 2013 shows that monthly page views (pvs) of some of the top porn sites are big: PornHub, 2.5 billion pvs; YouPorn, 2.1 billion pvs; Tube 8, 970 million pvs; and LiveJasmin, 710 million pvs. German researchers published a recent study associating higher porn consumption with the decline of marriage in the U.S. Guests Marty Klein, Ph.D., Marriage and Family Therapist, author Sexual Intelligence: What we really want from sex and how to get it and Elizabeth Schroeder, Ed. D., Sexuality Education expert discuss the issue with Larry Mantle. More

(AirTalk) In Gail Dines' book, Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality, she warns that our society's porn addiction is on the rise.

She takes an unflinching look at today’s porn industry: the stories woven into the images, the impact on our culture, the effects on us as men and women, the business machine that creates and markets porn, and the growing legitimacy of porn in mainstream media.
Above all, Pornland examines the way porn shapes and limits sexual imaginations and behaviors.
Although we are surrounded by pornographic images, many people are not aware of just how cruel and violent the industry is today. Pornland shows how today’s porn is strikingly different from yesterday’s Playboy and Penthouse magazines -- how competition in the industry and consumer desensitization have pushed porn toward hard core extremes.

Skier hits tree, dies on LA's Mt. Waterman
Local authorities have closed trails at Southern California's Mount Baldy [the tallest peak visible from Los Angeles] following the death of the second hiker in a week. San Bernardino County sheriff's officials say 47-year-old Dong Xing Liu died Saturday after he slipped and fell in the Icehouse Saddle area. Liu's wife was also injured and hospitalized in unknown condition.

"Kung Fu Panda 2" a big hit!
Mount Baldy Fire Chief Graham Hendrickson tells The Riverside Press-Enterprise that a dozen people had to be airlifted Saturday from the mountain, where icy and windy conditions have been common. "My understanding from talking to some of the hikers that we had contact with Saturday, the ice is so hard that crampons won't even penetrate the ice enough to hold them in place," Capt. Gordon Greene at the Mount Baldy Fire Department tells KPCC. More
