Many people contact Fight the New Drug to share their personal stories about how porn has affected their life or the life of a loved one. We consider these personal accounts very valuable because, while the science and research is powerful within its own right, personal accounts from real people seem to really hit home about the damage that pornography does to real lives.

Meet Bethany. She considers herself a quiet person, but she isn't afraid to take a bold stand for love. See what we mean by reading her story below.

Hey FTND!

Just wanted to share a little something! I have the red “Porn Kills Love” t-shirt and I wear it all the time! I love it!

A couple of weeks ago, I wore it to the middle school I work for, and I got some freaked-out looks by some of the kids. They asked, “WHAT are you wearing?!” They were stuck on that one word at the top: “Porn.”

I usually don’t wear it to work because I know that it isn’t always fully appropriate or professional to discuss that with students without their parent’s permission… However, I was able to get them to read the whole shirt and got some great questions that I told them to go home and discuss with their parents. I also said to look up Fight the New Drug!

I wore it again yesterday while I was out running errands with my littles. Usually, I get all kind of weird looks from people and no questions. I am a very shy person, so I just smile and go on hoping that my shirt sparks some research. Yesterday, two different people stopped me to compliment my shirt and we had a great open conversation on how important it is for people to understand the harms and the serious addiction that porn can cause.

Get this—I even ended up meeting a lady who owns the same shirt in the same store! It was great!
