Actress-model Pamela Anderson has branded porn as a public hazard.

The former Playboy playmate whose sex tape with former husband Tommy Lee was stolen in 1995 before being made available for webcast with their agreement, is concerned at how freely graphic sex footage is available and warned that the situation is becoming incredibly serious, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

In a joint op-ed with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach for the Wall Street Journal, Anderson wrote: “This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays.”

The 49-year-old actress, who has sons Brandon, 20, and Dylan, 18, with Lee, and Boteach believe it is too late for legislation to restrict the “Pandora’s box of pornography” but urged people to talk more openly about it and teach their children that accessing such materials is done by “losers”.

“The march of technology is irreversible and we aren’t so naive as to believe that any kind of imposed regulation could ever reseal the Pandora’s box of pornography,” they said in the article.

“What is required is an honest dialogue about what we are witnessing — the true nature and danger of porn — and an honour code to tamp it down in the collective interests of our well-being as individuals, as families and as communities.”

“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,” the column read.

The pair wrote the piece in the wake of disgraced politician Anthony Weiner’s latest sexting scandal, in which he was caught sending a raunchy picture in the presence of his four-year-old son.
