I thank tvirus for the opportunity.

I will try to convince that porn should be banned except for legitimate uses like use by sperm clinics, use by couple counsellors for solving intimacy issues or any similar legitimate use.

Porn harmful for brain

porn addiction leads to similar changes in brain activity as drug abuse.MRI scans of test subjects who admitted to compulsive pornography use showed that the reward centres of the brain reacted to seeing explicit material in the same way as an alcoholic’s might on seeing a drinks advert.

Couples

Unfortunately, far too many individuals and couples lives are being negatively influenced by pornography. See links below

Porn and Depression
Nearly 30 percent report that they view pornography at least 3-5 times a week and over 25 percent indicate that they view pornography daily. Initially, I chose to keep these two groups together to see how they did on the depression scale in comparison to the general population. They didn't fair too well. The general population on this particular measurement score about a 6.5 on depression. When I looked at individuals who viewed pornography at least 3-5 times a week they averaged almost 18. According to the particular scale, this would equate to moderate depression. Next, if we broke the frequency down even further and asked
what is the difference between individuals who view pornography daily and those who view it 3-5 times a week. The answer surprised me. Individuals who view pornography daily scored in the severe depression range (over 21) while those who viewed porn 3-5 times a week averaged a little above 15--still not great but not severe depression.
Porn Leads to Crime

Read the following news article

porn also leads to violence against women
A study from 1984 where one group watched a lot of pornography, another group watched less and a third watched none. The group that watched the most pornography, for example were more accepting of rape — thinking rapists should spend 50 percent less time in jail than the group that watched no pornography.

The study Use of Pornography in the Criminal and Developmental Histories of Sexual Offenders examined the exposure to and the usage of pornography in the histories of 38 rapists and 26 child molesters. The study found that both groups reported exposure to pornography and were "significantly more likely" to use pornographic materials before and during 
their offenses. According to the study pornography was employed to relieve an impulse to act out. According to the study, child molesters indicated "significantly more" exposure topornography than rapists in adulthood.

Legitimate uses of Porn

I am not against legitimate uses of porn. For example

A sperm donor produces and collects sperm at a sperm bank or clinic by masturbation in a private room. Many of these facilities contain pornography such as videos/DVD, magazines, and/or photographs which may
assist the donor in becoming aroused in order to facilitate production of the ejaculate, also known as the "semen sample.
