If there was ever a reason to stop the deep dive into the dark and dangerous sea of watching pornography then simply watch the above video; in it Ted Bundy list’s in chronological order into what led him to become one of Americas most twisted serial killer.

Notorious Ted Bundy

Theodore Robert Bundy (born Theodore Robert Cowell; November 24, 1946 – January 24, 1989) was an American serial killer who kidnapped, raped, and murdered numerous young women and girls during the 1970s and possibly earlier. What began as a curiosity at a young age, began to spiral to the attraction to fulfil sexual urges through pornographic content ended up an obsession, then an addiction and eventually leading to killing in order to fulfil his twisted sexual urges.

The question is why bother writing about a serial killer of the worst kind?

The answer lays with the fact that the cause of his eventual end began with a hidden disease affecting many people, both Muslims and non, even among the most spiritually religious clique; Pornography addiction. Many of us have heard the religious arguments of the harms of seeking illegal sexual satisfaction whether it is from the Islamic, Christian or Jewish traditions, so much so for some people it may now fall on the metaphorical deaf ears intentionally blocking out the so called “ramblings” of lunatic religious folks. Whereas for others these religious doomsday warnings, punishments of the fire, the torments of the grave etc may not have the same appeal it once had leading to the demise of having fear factor of the afterlife the ahadith, verse of the Quran becoming numb to their ears.

If we leave aside religious teachings on the harms of unlawful sexual glances, relationships, pornography and think about the harmful effects of pornography only from a secular point of view it is clear from this point of view (and the above video) where pornography addiction leads to. 
Simply put, pornography is the MOST DANGEROUS DRUG out there far more destructive and catastrophic than coke, meth, molly, bath salts or any other drug or legal highs etc. A pornographic addict is always thinking about sexual fantasies, planning and scheming how to execute his devious and twisted sexual urges, whereas a drug addict will only be in a mental state of addiction when the “pull” to get high comes again and he loses his senses.   This post is intended to shed light from another dimension on the age old teachings of religious traditions; the harms a man is likely to face in breaking the social and moral compass which all religious traditions none more so than Islam inherently teaches people to adhere to.
