How porn led Ted Bundy to serial killings

SAN FRANCISCO, California, (LifeSiteNews) — When serial killer Ted Bundy’s death-row interview linking his crimes to pornography was released after his 1989 execution, it was easy to dismiss as Christian moralizing. But now that the short, compelling video has resurfaced on social media as part of a new, secular, science-based, anti-pornography movement, it is much harder to ignore.
“This video is a radical example of the impact of pornography,” Clay Olsen, the CEO of FightTheNewDrug.org, readily acknowledged. “We don’t argue at all that pornography use leads to serial killing. We do argue that it impacts most users in three serious ways — hurting them in the brain, the heart and in the world at large.”
Bundy became a born-again Christian as his execution neared, and he consented on the night before his death to the interview with Focus on the Family founder Dr. James Dobson — two reasons for the popular culture to dismiss the interview in which Bundy argues that pornography led him to murder as a way to achieve sexual pleasure.
I would keep seeking the more potent, the more explicit, the more graphic kinds of pornographythe kind that involves violence,” he told Dobson in the interview, later adding that, while he was not a social scientist, he had spent many years in jail, “and I’ve met a lot of men who were motivated to commit violence just like me, and without exception every one of these men was deeply involved in pornography and without question deeply was influenced and deeply compromised by an addiction to pornography.
Science has finally caught up with truth,” Olsen explains.
What religions have long preached as immoral and medical practitioners and others have anecdotally warned against has now increasingly proved to be the case. Pornography is harmful.
“It’s very analogous to tobacco,” Olsen told LifeSiteNews. The link between tobacco and cancer was shown in the 1930s but not accepted for decades. Policy responses took even longer.
Olsen’s non-profit was started in 2008 by a group of Utah State University students who became aware of the new discoveries in neuroscience on behavioral addictions, which work through building a dependency on chemicals such as dopamine produced inside the brain itself.
When the brain becomes dependent on dopamine delivered by pornography use, it becomes less able to derive pleasure from sexual intercourse with the opposite sex, leading to marital and relational breakdown or an inability to form relationships in the first place, Olsen’s website explains.
Another website, Yourbrainonporn.com, targets sex addicts motivated by their sexual impotence to kick the habit. Both it and FightTheNewDrug share a commitment to a science-based approach that steers clear of religious morality as a tactical choice. “Our staff and represent a wide spectrum of religious viewpoints and those with no religion,”  Olsen said.
Both sites speak the language of the youthful Internet user. Yourbrainonporn calls its recovery program a “reboot,” and calls for total abstinence from porn to let the neuropathways connecting the brain’s dopamine generators to porn to atrophy. FightThe NewDrug uses social media to reach youth directly, as well as appealing to parents and educators. The site has 1.6 million followers. FightTheNewDrug also offers the FORTIFY program to young addicts. It has 50,000 users.
Olsen says FightTheNewDrug’s goal is to educate the public and not to make Internet pornography illegal, even for minors. “We want to create a groundswell of knowledge. We want to change the conversation.” As for changes to laws and restrictions on Internet porn use, “Let the chips fall where they may,” he said.
But when nudged only a little, Olsen admits that the groundswell could well lead to laws and restrictions as happened with tobacco. “There was a time when cigarettes were sold from machines sitting outside stores — any eight-year-old could pop in a quarter and get a pack. Now nobody at any age can buy cigarettes not knowing it is harmful. That is where we’d like to be with pornography.”

Flashback: In 1989 interview, Ted Bundy details how porn led him to serial killings Jul 25, 2016 Steve Weatherbe


Theodore Robert Bundy (Burlington24 novembre 1946 – Starke24 gennaio 1989) è stato un serial killerstatunitense, autore di almeno 30-35 omicidi ai danni di giovani donne negli Stati Uniti tra il 1974 e il 1978; potrebbe avere colpito anche prima, a partire dagli anni '60.

Bundy è ricordato come un uomo affascinante, tratto che sfruttava per conquistare la fiducia delle sue vittime. Era solito attirare la loro attenzione fingendo di essere disabile o in difficoltà, oppure impersonando una figura autoritaria, per poi aggredirle e stuprarle in luoghi appartati. Talvolta ritornava sulla scena del crimine per avere rapporti sessuali con i cadaveri in decomposizione, almeno finché la putrefazione non era tale da rendere questi atti impraticabili. Hadecapitato almeno 12 vittime, conservandone le teste nel suo appartamento come trofeo. In alcune occasioni ha semplicemente fatto irruzione nelle abitazioni delle vittime bastonandole mentre dormivano.
Fu inizialmente incarcerato nello Utah nel 1975 per sequestro di persona con tentata aggressione, e successivamente fu sospettato di diversi altri omicidi irrisolti in molti altri stati americani. Di fronte alle accuse di omicidio in Colorado, progettò due fughe per poi compiere altre aggressioni, tra cui tre omicidi, finché non fu nuovamente catturato inFlorida nel 1978. Ricevette tre condanne a morte in due processi separati per gli omicidi in Florida.
Morì sulla sedia elettrica il 24 gennaio 1989 alla Raiford Prison di StarkeFlorida.
La sua biografa e conoscente personale Ann Rule lo ha descritto come "un sadico sociopatico che traeva piacere dal dolore altrui e dal senso di potere che provava verso le sue vittime, sia quando stavano per morire, che dopo".[1] Si è definito "... il più gelido figlio di puttana che incontrerai mai".[2][3] Il procuratore Polly Nelson, uno dei membri che aveva il compito di difenderlo in tribunale, scrisse che "era la precisa definizione del male".[4]
