Pornography has been with us from ancient times, ever since man’s view of his sexuality was corrupted by the Fall. Following their sin, Adam and Eve for the first time felt the need to make coverings for their nakedness. Ever since then, the sexual sensibilities and desires that began as a perfect facet of God’s creation have been warped and corrupted. Even in a simpler and less-dangerous time, C.S. Lewis could observe, “You can get a large audience together for a strip-tease act – that is, to watch a girl undress on the stage. Now suppose you come to a country where you could fill a theatre by simply bringing a covered plate on to the stage and then slowly lifting the cover so as to let every one see, just before the lights went out, that it contained a mutton chop or a bit of bacon, would you not think that in that country something had gone wrong with the appetite for food?”[1]
