What does the Catholic Church teach about the moral implications of pornography?

Pornography involves exploiting the human body and viewing the body as an object. Of course, we know that the Catholic Church teaches that the human body should be respected, because of the dignity that Christ bestows on every person. We must understand the terrible reality of pornography in our culture today, so we can offer help to those who are suffering with this addiction.
