Studies show that males, on average, first view internet pornography between ages 11 and 14, though recent anecdotal evidence puts it even earlier, between the ages of 8 and 10. Most young people today access porn on mobile phones, through social media sites that are targeted to teens, and free internet porn sites. Today’s mainstream porn is hardcore and violent, and many parents are struggling to find ways to protect their children from the harms of pornography.  

 

 

In this presentation, Samantha Wechsler, Executive Director of Culture Reframed, will: 

Give a brief overview of the ways in which early access and repeated exposure to pornography undermines the healthy social, sexual, emotional, and cognitive development of young people

Debunk the most prevalent myths about kids and pornorgraphy

Provide tips for parents to help them build resilience and resistance in their kids to porn culture
