Anderson and a celebrity rabbi penned an anti-porn op-ed for the 'Wall Street Journal.'

Model and actress Pamela Anderson, who got her start in Playboy magazine, is speaking out against porn. In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, co-authored with "celebrity" Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Anderson calls porn a "public hazard" and blames porn for Anthony Weiner's recent texting scandal.

From our respective positions as rabbi-counselor and Playboy model and actress, we have often warned about pornography's corrosive effects on a man's soul and on his ability to function as a husband and, by extension, as a father. This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays.

They end the article by stating, "Porn is for losers—a boring, wasteful, and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality."

The article has ignited pushback from the internet, with commenters drawing a connection between Anderson's own past posing nude to her current no-porn stance.

Still, Anderson is entitled to change her opinions and has some supporters.
In 1995, a sex tape between Anderson and then-husband Tommy Lee was stolen from their home and distributed by Internet Entertainment Group. The couple filed a $90 million copyright infringement lawsuit in 1998. In 2002, a judge ruled that Lee and Anderson were each owed $740,000 from the company. Anderson also settled with the same company over a sex tape with Poison frontman Brett Michaels.
