Usted me ha cambiado mi vida, sir Wilson, desde 2012. Nunca lo olvidaré. Siempre será parte de mí. Gracias infinitas por su vida. Descanse en paz.
I just want to say a big THANK YOU to the late Gary Wilson, his TED talk really opened my eyes on the effects of pornography on the brain and the YBOP website is an excellent resource!
I am truly grateful for all his research and wish his family and friends the best.
I wouldn't have been the same man without you, THANKS!
Thank you for raising the awareness of this issue so early on and as a legacy to your work i hope that we all continue to educate and challenge ourselves further and that we make others aware of the destructive nature of porn.
He was ahead of his time, and has undoubtedly saved many lives by bravely shining a light in such a dark place. I'm sure that many more lives will yet be saved by the legacy he leaves.
We were so utterly gutted to hear of Gary's passing. Gary touched both our lives, not just in a professional capacity but also in a personal way, both through his compassion and his knowledge.
If it had not been for Gary's help when we reached out, our film and our work would not have been what it is. Thanks to Gary, his input and his help connecting us with others, we are now educating parents who are taking active steps to protect their children from the harms that can arise from exposure to online pornography. He has helped to protect each and every one of them. We are eternally grateful for having met him.
And we are honoured that we were able to spend time with him, Marnia, Arion, Noah & Gabe in Oregon in 2019. We enjoyed getting to know him personally and had a lot of fun and laughter playing mini-golf, axe throwing and eating good food.
Gary's work and his dedication have been fundamentally game-changing for so many. It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to someone so badly needed in this world xxx
No other person's work has been as helpful and educational for me in my own work on pornography than Gary Wilson's. He paved the way for having science/research-based conversations about porn's harms, that transcend ideological boundaries. I'm so very grateful to him for everything he's accomplished in his lifetime.
