Porn Is Damaging Your Child’s Future’s Sex Life

Porn has always been a source of rift within families (with that in mind I guess they named the VR headset aptly,Oculus ‘Rift’). But as computer and screens have become omnipresent, so has porn. This has left many wondering how they should respond to the apparently perverse, yet a perfectly natural consequence of the tech revolution.

Unsurprisingly, people hold wildly different opinions regarding porn. Some consider it as an expression of human sexuality which shouldn’t be repressed, while others argue that it promotes deviant behavior and should be avoided.

But almost everyone resonates on the same pitch when porn boasts a ‘no child left behind’ motto. No one wants their child being exposed to the material at an early age.

When the mother of a 13-year old boy, Allison Havey learned her son was watching porn she remarks, “I was offended because I thought, why would he be doing that? It’s deviant behavior and he’s not deviant”, little did she know that the truth was far from it.

Sadly, eight out of every ten teenagers aged 13-18 years, have watched porn, according to a UK survey. Such early exposures often lead to a twisted sense of sexuality mirrored form their virtual sessions. As a result, it’s the teenage girls who have to pay the price.

The British Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) report that many females confessed “‘Pornography has led to pressure on girls and young women to act a certain way”.

By ‘certain way’ they meant engaging in deranged sexual behaviors to accommodate for their boyfriends’sense of sexuality.

Fortunately, the situation can be helped. The above mentioned mother Allison Havey, along with Deana Puccio, now runs an organization, the Rap Project, with the aim to educate society to face this predicament. Their advice: Parents should muster up the courage to get out of their comfort zone and confront their child on the issue.

Parents can and should play a vital role in letting their children know that porn is not a depiction of a healthy real world relation. Letting porn be the sole exposure to sexuality for your child and letting it play the roles of judge, jury and executioner on all topics sexual,is an injustice to your child in today’s world.
