What You Need to Know About Kids and Porn: Culture Reframed


(piano music) – We all want to think that our kids are not looking at porn. I perfectly understand
that desire to think, “Not my kid.” What we know, from study
after study, without question, if you have a son, then you should assume, especially by the age of around 13 or 14, that he has looked at porn, whether he has chosen to look
at porn, or it’s come at him through PornHub, Snapchat, Instagram. And I think what a lot of people don’t get is that mainstream is hard core. – We were recently in a
classroom with a group of seventh graders, and the
question that all the boys had was, “Is it true that girls
really like to be tied up?” – The reason we think about pornography and hyper-sexualized media
as a public health crisis, is that it is not an individual problem. It is a societal problem. Asking a parent to prevent
their kid from seeing porn is like asking a parent
to prevent their kid from breathing polluted air. It’s just not possible,
given how pervasive hyper-sexualized media
and pornography are today. – What we know from
studies and from speaking to young people is that
pornography has now become the major form of sex
ed in the Western world. – Another thing that the
porn culture is teaching them is that aggressive forms
of sexual behavior towards girls and women is completely normal… like it’s not criminal.
It’s not even problematic. – As a parent, you’re constantly looking for valuable resources
that are going to help you do the best you can for your kids. And that is absolutely what I
found with Culture Reframed. I was impressed by the parent program and the continued research
that the organization is doing. It is fully comprehensive. It really takes you from
the point of education, which then gives you a sense of urgency that you’ve got to have this
conversation with your kids, and then guides you
through that conversation. – Culture Reframed is
designed to empower parents with knowledge. And then to give them
the tools they need to not only teach their own children this important information, but to make sure that their children then create a circle of
knowledge with their friends, and that the parents speak to each other and create a community of
understanding and awareness because that’s how change happens. (piano music fading)
