This year was the biggest, most globally-reaching #NoPornovember in Fight the New Drug history and all of our Fighters around the world made it possible!
Each year, the #NoPornovember campaign serves as a reminder that this movement is alive, growing, and making a real impact. This campaign has a much larger purpose than debuting brand new Fighter gear—the purpose of #NoPornovember is to spread the facts on the harms of pornography and be a bold voice for change online.
We want to help our Fighters change the conversation surrounding pornography by providing them with ammunition to spark a discussion, and this month accomplished that in very real ways.
Let’s look back at all the amazing things that happened this month and look ahead to what’s next.
To anyone who wants to take part in the challenge to give up porn for 30 days, you still can! Have you ever thought about giving up porn for good? If you missed #NoPornovember, or if you did it and want another challenge, try it this month for 30 (more) days to see what can happen.
Feeling like you need some support to accomplish it? Our affiliates at Fortify can help! Fortify is an online recovery platform dedicated to helping individuals find lasting freedom from pornography. Learn, connect, and track your recovery journey. Plus, it’s now free to use! Try it out, what do you have to lose?
Brain, Heart, World screening day
As the world has spent more time online in daily life, there has also been an increase in pornography consumption across the globe. Campaigns like #NoPornovember give us the opportunity to band together as Fighters to educate ourselves and others on the harms of pornography.
Given the ever-growing body of research, it can no longer be denied that repeated porn exposure has a tangible effect on consumers, and is connected to declining relationship satisfaction as well as various forms of exploitation.
This isn’t a moral argument, it’s simply something to consider given the facts. Our three-part docuseries, Brain, Heart, World, exists to provide people with the opportunity to make an educated decision regarding pornography by highlighting its documented neurological, relational, and societal harmful effects.
Even though we could not all physically be together in all places, we still banded together as Fighters to educate ourselves and others on the harms of pornography. This is why we hosted our annual Brain, Heart, World virtual screening day on November 13th!
If you missed it, you can still watch our three-part documentary on the harmful effects of porn for free by visiting BrainHeartWorld.org. Happy viewing!
Limited edition Fighter gear launched
Each #NoPornovember we release new Fighter gear to commemorate our activism and encourage our supporters to spark conversations about real love wherever they go.
Looking back to some past limited edition #NoPornovember Fighter gear, in 2015, we released a teal “Porn Kills Love” colorway. In 2016, we launched a charcoal and metallic gold design that sold out in one day, and then brought it back for good in 2017. In 2017, we introduced our first ever 80’s/90’s inspired PKL design. In 2018, for the 5th anniversary of our “Porn Kills Love” classic red tee, we released a special edition blackout tee.
In 2021, we released not one but five exclusive limited PKL tees that have been in our Fighter Club Secret Store! Check them out:

There are limited quantities of some of our seasonal and Secret Store items, since we dropped them on November 1st, they’ve been selling out!
International #RepTheMovement Day
We celebrated #NoPornovember with a global event called #RepTheMovement Day. We had Fighters on every continent (except Antarctica) show their support for the cause and send in their awesome stories of how the movement is spreading through the simple act of wearing a tee and sparking a conversation.
It’s an undeniable fact that this movement is over 6 million strong, and growing by the day. This year was big, and next year will be even bigger.
Looking ahead to what’s next
Thank you to all our Fighters for making this the best #NoPornovember yet!
November may be over, but this fight for real love and this fight to raise awareness of the harms of porn has only just begun. Keep sharing this massively important information, and no matter what month it is, always fight for real love.
And as we look ahead, what’s next?
Even though we educate all year-round on the harmful effects of porn and highlight the benefits of giving it up, we recognize that some people need a little extra motivation to try giving up porn for themselves. This is why #NoPornovember is such a great opportunity for some people to take a leap and try giving up porn, though we stand by our continual message that everyone can benefit from a life free from porn in all months!
