Anderson was famed 20 years ago for her performance as a lifeguard on the popular TV show Baywatch, her torrid affair with rocker Tommy Lee, the highly publicized release of her sex tape with Lee, and her public struggle with Hepatitis C.

Anderson, who co-authored the piece with Rabbi Samuel Boteach, open the essay discussing the "repeated, self-sabotaging sexting" of former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, who was recently disgraced yet again.

"If anyone still doubted the devastation that porn addiction wreaks on those closest to the addict, behold the now-shattered marriage of Mr. Weiner and Huma Abedin, a breakup that she initiated, reportedly, in shock at the disgraced ex-congressman’s inclusion of their 4-year-old son in one lewd photo that he sent to a near-stranger," they wrote.

The essay blames the wide accessibility of pornography and argues that society needs "an honor code to tamp it down in the collective interests of our well-being as individuals, as families and as communities.”

"Porn is for losers," they write, "a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality."
