Former Playboy model Pamela Anderson is urging people to stop using pornography, calling it a “public hazard of unprecedented seriousness.”

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed published on Wednesday and co-authored with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the former Playboy Playmate argued pornography has a harmful effect on family formation, romance and sexual satisfaction.

Ms. Anderson advocated a “sensual revolution,” which she said would “replace pornography with eroticism – the alloying of sex with love, of physicality with personality, of the body’s mechanics with imagination, of orgasmic release with binding relationships.”

“Simply put, we must educate ourselves and our children 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,” she wrote.

Ms. Anderson also cited statistics indicating pornography is addictive for some users, who develop a dependency on the erotic images.

She pointed to the “self-sabotaging sexting” of Anthony Weiner, whose wife, top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, separated from him earlier this week, after the disgraced ex-congressman sent a stranger a lewd photo that included his four-year-old son.

“If anyone still had doubts about the addictive dangers of pornography, Anthony Weiner should have put paid to them with his repeated, self-sabotaging sexting,” she wrote.
