I think one of the side-effects is sexual predators. And that leads to kidnapping of children, which usually leads to their murder. Rape is another.
I believe pornography contributes to the objectification of females (for the guys anyway) and can increase violence tendancies towards the opposite sex. Not sure about that last part, but that's what my friend, who is a psych major, told me.
I routinely watch hardcore porn and I don't think it has negatives effects on me, I don't go out and rape women anymore than than I go out and kill people after watching a war movie.

Tennis elbow for males and carpal tunnel for the females. Also social dysfunction if the person spends too much time looking at dirty pictures.

For the porn addict, sexual passion is not the problem. Sexual passion is merely the drug being used to medicate the real problems – those wounds from the past that don’t go away.
Perhaps the most obvious injury from pornography occurs in the mind. Once porn is downloaded into our mental hard drive through the portals of the senses, it works like a computer virus, corrupting our thoughts about sexuality. The contaminated files include our thoughts about being male or female, what we believe about our sexuality, how we plan to behave sexually, and whether we have the capacity to remain faithful in marriage.
