US Navy Moves to Rid Workplace of Porn

Ad Feedback

Secretary of the U.S. Navy Ray Mabus is taking steps to rid the Navy and Marines of racy or pornographic images.

Mabus wants all images cleaned up in workplace areas and is requiring the same at Navy exchanges where pornographic materials may sometimes be sold.

Morality in Media is applauding the military branch for taking steps to remove offensive and degrading images. The Air Force took similar steps last year.

The military has been under fire in recent weeks over reports of widespread sexual assault and harrassment.

"It is no surprise that the Pentagon sees an increase in sexual assaults when it allows the prevalent use of pornography on bases and even allows the sale of pornography in its facilities," Dawn Hawkins, executive director of Morality in Media, said in a press release.

"Research overwhelmingly demonstrates a link between pornography consumption and increased sexual violence and objectification of women," she said.

Morality in Media is asking Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to block access to pornography on electronic devices at military bases worldwide.
