    Actress, activist and former Playboy model Pamela Anderson has teamed with a rabbi to speak out against pornography.

    An opinion piece by Anderson and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach published by The Wall Street Journal cites the latest sexting scandal involving former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner in calling for "an honest dialogue" about the dangers of pornography and "an honor code to tamp it down." 

    The essay calls pornography "a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness."

    “The ubiquity of porn is an outgrowth of the sexual revolution that began a half-century ago and which, with gender rights and freedoms now having been established, has arguably run its course,” the piece reads.

    It closes by saying "porn is for losers" and calls it "a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality."

    Rabbi Shmuley has authored dozens of books and briefly hosted a reality television program on TLC called “Shalom in the Home.”

    In addition to her modeling and acting work, Anderson has been a vocal member of the organization PETA, or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. She has appeared on the cover of Playboy 14 times, most recently in December for the magazine's final nude issue. She did not address her past modeling work in the op-ed piece.
