NEW YORK - Former Playboy model Pamela Anderson has teamed with a rabbi to speak out against pornography.

An opinion piece by Anderson and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach published by the Wall Street Journal cites the latest sexting scandal involving former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner in calling for "an honest dialogue" about the dangers of pornography and "an honour code to tamp it down."

The essay calls pornography "a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness." It closes by saying "porn is for losers" and calls it "a boring wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality."

Anderson has appeared on the cover of Playboy 14 times, most recently in December for the magazine's final nude issue.

This story has been changed to correct the spelling of Rabbi Boteach's first name to Shmuley from Shumley.
