Cultural Quote #437: Why Pornography Is Intrinsically Wrong

But the primary reason pornography is wrong is because it takes an inappropriate attitude toward the human person. Philosopher Karol Wojtyla said, “The human person is a good towards which the only proper and adequate attitude is love.” Well, what do we mean by love?” Aristotle would say “To love is to will the good of the other.” And we might add “for their sake.” I love you if I want your good for your sake. I don’t my good at your expense. I don’t even want your good for my sake. I want your good for your sake. This is what it means to love.
