Ask yourself - What messages does porn teach about sex? How might this affect sexually inexperienced young people?

 
Internet porn sends a message that males have entitlement over females bodies and that females should just 'take it' or do what ever he wants. It is not a matter of 'if' but 'when' your child will view such internet pornographic images.
  • Porn sends a message that porn sex is real sex and that if you speak up about it or disagree, then you are a prude or not interested in sex.
  • Porn has replaced intimacy & pleasure with penetration & performance.
  • Porn sex is overwhelmingly degrading, violent, fake and harmful to normal human sexuality function.
  • Porn sex is inaccurate. The two main sexual organs of the body are the brain and all of the skin, not just genitals, anus and mouth. Outercourse not intercourse gives humans the best sexual pleasure.

It is never too late to start these conversations. Nor is it too early conversations about safe technology use; these conversations need to start when children have access to the internet.

This just shows that so many people are seeking out porn. So before your children develop their own understanding of porn and have that impact their journey exploring sexuality, start these conversations and get them thinking about the reality of porn and the importance of consent and respectful relationships.
