Generation Triple X – Responding to our ‘Pornified’ Culture

March 13th, 2014 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

By John Stonestreet, Breakpoint

Even the secular world is worried about pornography. But without the worldview to fight it, they’re at an impasse. This is where the church can help.

We’re not in the age of Playboy anymore. Teenagers and children once had to stumble upon a friend’s magazine stash or face a convenience store clerk to get their hands on pornography.

But these days porn is available at the tap of a finger—on computers, smart phones, tablets, and cable television. So much so that even secular consciences are prickling.

A survey by the Public Religion Research Institute found that only 29 percent of Americans believe consuming pornography is morally acceptable. A full 77 percent of women condemn it, and despite the fact that roughly half of American men are hooked on it, 65 percent of them say they disapprove. Deep in their hearts, most Americans just know it’s wrong.

But without appealing to Christian morality, justifying their aversion to pornography is a challenge—although they have come up with several interesting theories.

Many experts are treating porn addiction like a disease. Writing in the Daily Mail, British psychotherapist John Woods describes how many of his young patients spend hours a day indulging their obsession at the expense of schoolwork, relationships, and jobs. They end up in his office after their habits take them beyond the limits of what’s legal—and police come knocking at the parents’ doors.

What would pornography lessons look like in practice?

March 11th, 2014 Jill Posted in Children/Family, News, Pornography, Sex education Comments Off

From Family Education Trust

Family Education Trust lifts the lid on precisely what the nation’s most influential sex educators want children to learn in school

According to advice jointly published by Brook, the Sex Education Forum and the PSHE Association, over four-fifths of parents want schools to provide lessons addressing issues surrounding pornography. But whether the majority of parents want teachers to subject their children to kind of classes advocated by the sex education lobby is quite a different matter.

In an opinion piece published on the Daily Telegraph website, Family Education Trust director, Norman Wells, goes behind the sophisticated language employed by sex education campaigners and discovers that the type of lessons they have in mind are much more graphic and explicit than might at first appear.

Mr Wells reveals that the advice, which is intended to supplement the government’s statutory guidance on sex and relationships education, recommends resources which advise teachers that ‘pornography is hugely diverse – it’s not necessarily “all bad”’ and that pupils merely need help ‘interpreting’ it.

Another recommended teaching resource is an article on TheSite website entitled ‘Porn vs Reality’. After briefly addressing six ‘porn myths’, none of which could be printed in a family newspaper, the article advises young people: ‘Sex is great. And porn can be great. It’s the idea that porn sex is like real sex which is the problem. But if you can separate the fantasy from the reality you’re much more likely to enjoy both.’

Norman Wells asks:

Do parents really want their teachers to help their children enjoy ‘real sex’ and ‘porn sex’? Is this what they have in mind when they say they are in favour of pornography being addressed in school? Do schools that provide such education merit being regarded ‘safe spaces’?

The advice, which professes to have the support of government ministers and luminaries from the worlds of education, health and child protection, is due to be commended to schools by the Department for Education. But the vast majority of parents would be deeply disturbed if they were aware of the fact that the guidance takes a thoroughly relativistic stance and completely divorces sexual pleasure from the context of marriage and the family.

Schools ’should have porn lessons’

March 9th, 2014 Jill Posted in Children/Family, Pornography Comments Off

From Herald Scotland

Schools should give lessons on pornography to teach pupils that it shows a "distorted image" of sex and relationships, according to new guidance.

Youngsters need to learn that pornography does not reflect real life, often showing "'perfect' bodies and exaggerated sexual prowess", it says.

The document also calls for students to be told about the dangers of 'sexting' – sending explicit text messages – and sharing sexual photos and images.

The new guidance has been drawn up by sexual health charity Brook, the PSHE Association and the Sex Education Forum in a bid to give schools advice on how to teach pupils about the topic.

It comes in the wake of a number of reports warning that sex and relationships education is not up to scratch in many schools and growing fears that children are increasingly exposed to pornography, sexual images and sexual bullying, which could leave them open to exploitation and inappropriate behaviour.

A report published by Ofsted last year found that sex and relationships education (SRE) needs to be improved in more than a third of schools and called for secondary school pupils to learn more about issues such as porn, relationships, sexuality and staying safe, rather than just the ''mechanics'' of reproduction.

Teachers have also spoken out about the issue, with one survey suggesting that schoolchildren are increasingly having sexually explicit conversations with each other after being exposed to pornography. The poll also found that some teachers report an increase in sexual bullying at their school or college.

The new advice, which has been welcomed by ministers, says that schools should teach about the impact of pornography, arguing that there is widespread support from parents for this.

Things You Didn’t Know About Porn: 3 part video for kids

February 3rd, 2014 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

By Gary Wilson, Yourbrainonporn.com

It's an unsettling fact that by age 11 most boys have been exposed to pornographic images. Yet few materials on the subject address such a youthful audience. If you're a parent, it can be surprisingly difficult to find a good way to discuss pornography. You don't want your child to see sex as "forbidden" or "dirty," but no matter how sex-positive you are, you sense that porn isn't the best way to gain a sex education.

"Things You Didn't Know About Porn" was developed with the assistance of a dad who teaches science. It helps kids, parents and teachers become knowledgeable about the potential negative effects of pornography use. Scientifically based and non-religious, "Things You Didn't Know About Porn" describes some potential pitfalls of porn use in simple, easy to understand terms. It draws a parallel between junk food and porn, and explains why these activities have the potential to "train" the brain, and become unhealthy habits. This lets youngsters make more informed choices about all potentially addictive substances and activities.

A Healing Journey out of Porn Addiction and Same Sex Attraction

January 26th, 2014 Jill Posted in Healing, Homosexuality, Pornography Comments Off

from JONAH

As we begin the year 2014, I look back and realize how 2013 was a true turning point in my life. It was the year when I finally determined to put an end to a certain misery I had actually grown quite attached to: porn addiction. It was also the year when I realized that I probably would never be able to conquer my addiction on my own.

By nature, I am a very independent person. I like my space, and I like to do things my own way. I like to have freedom of choice. Yet, my perception of “freedom of choice” is what inevitably led me into my comfortable misery; a place of secret sadness and longing whose origins I didn’t understand, but a place I found I could escape—if only temporarily—through the euphoric pleasure of sexual activity.

Don’t get me wrong, my addiction (fortunately) never dominated by life. I was still able to work a job, raise a family, and do most all the other things that the Average Joe might do. However, the urges of my addiction were never far beneath the surface, and I would often feel compelled to arrange my daily schedule so that I could squeeze in some “free time” along the way for looking at porn and masturbating. Oddly enough, it seemed like whatever amount of time I allowed myself for indulging in porn, it was never enough. Once the internet came along, there was an endless supply of porn available and I would sometimes lose myself for hours, just surfing from one image to the next; from one phallic adrenaline rush to the next. Too often, scheduling time for my addiction was problematic. Family responsibilities or work would intrude and demand more of my time. My porn viewing would get eclipsed, and my natural response was to get angry; angry that I couldn’t find enough “porn freedom.” So, this balancing act—between family, work and porn—became my comfortable misery; a porn addiction integrated into my day-to-day life so seamlessly that I was able to have the best of all worlds. Or so I thought.

Calm down, freedom squad: Cameron’s ‘porn filter’ is hardly blocking anything

December 24th, 2013 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

By William Foxton, Telegraph

I'll be the first to say that government-mandated web filtering is a terrible idea, fuelled by dangerous ignorance of what the internet is and how it works.
However, it's only worth getting angry about things that are actually happening. Over the last few days, a series of hysterical articles have appeared, claiming "they" – David Cameron – is blocking practically everything.
 
Cory Doctrow is terrified the government is blocking access to open internet group the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Martin Robbins in the New Statesman has claimed the O2 filter is blocking Childline, the Samaritans and battered women's charities.
 
But this has nothing to do with the Government's plans. It all flows from an O2 website that lets you check if your website is blocked. On the highest setting, "Parental Control", it does indeed seem to block practically the whole internet.
 
However, the Government didn't order this imposed – it's one of the rubbish mobile filters that has existed for years and has nothing to do with O2 home broadband (which is now owned by Sky anyway). The reason the O2 "Parental Control" setting is so harsh is it's intended as a way to give a phone to five- to eight-year-olds. It's hard to get a non-smartphone these days, and this setting blocks practically everything. It blocks O2's own website; it blocks the BBC CBeebies website.

How porn is destroying modern sex lives

December 12th, 2013 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

From Mailonline

Feminist writer Naomi Wolf has an unsettling explanation for why Britons are having less sex

  • Couples are having 20% less sex than they did just ten years ago
  • Wolf connects this to the rise of pornography
  • Porn poses health problems…
  • It desensitises those who watch it and has long-term consequences
  • As a result, it has a negative effect on sex and relationships

These days, I am rarely surprised when, after a lecture or book signing, someone will try to talk to me about their addiction to porn and ask where he or she can get help.

As an author and feminist social commentator, I often discuss my work at events and meet a wide spectrum of people who talk to me about sex, relationships and, more increasingly, the impact of pornography on their lives.

There is no stereotype of what this person will look like. A man in his 60s has asked me if I think his porn addiction accounts for his current impotence.

A lovely young mother of three boys asked sadly how her husband, in an otherwise happy, sexually fulfilled marriage, became 'lost to porn' to the point that she had to leave him. She now wonders how to protect her sons.

A bright, male college student confessed that he is worried about what he calls 'the kink spiral' – the term he uses to describe feeling trapped by his need to see more and more extreme porn to get aroused.

Sign our petition – End the use of trafficking to fuel Pornography

November 29th, 2013 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

From Voice for Justice UK

When many people think of pornography they imagine a Playboy bunny, with a winning smile and fluffy pompom tail. In this day and age, the reality is far darker and more violent. In what is termed hardcore porn, women are routinely subjected to multiple, simultaneous penetration, and are deliberately and coldly humiliated and abused. Many suffer extreme physical damage as result, such as anal and vaginal tearing, prolapse, tearing to the throat, as well of course as the routine contraction of a variety of STIs, including AIDS. Very, very few women, when they agree to take part in these films, have the slightest idea what they are signing up to. But some are not given the privilege of choice. These include child victims of abuse, women – and sometimes boys – who have been trafficked.Human trafficking is increasingly being revealed as a major problem worldwide. Here in the UK, we are slowly waking up to the fact that it flourishes in our cities too, like a many-headed hydra, which is extremely difficult to destroy. We know, for instance, that it forms a major part of the sex industry – but what many have not realised is that it is the victims of this abuse who are used for the production of the more extreme and degrading forms of online pornography.

Let’s make no mistake, the pornography industry (tastefully branded as ‘adult movies’) flourishes because it brings in huge financial return. It’s big business – no longer the preserve of grubby men in brown macs, creeping round the back streets, but driven by highly organised crime syndicates, who are entirely ruthless in ‘growing the market’. And who care not one jot for the wellbeing of their performers.

The average shelf life of a young woman caught up in this industry is 6 months. At the end of that time she is usually too physically wrecked to continue. Sometimes these girls never recover. Effectively, their lives are over before they’ve begun.

But the damage done is more far-reaching than this. Pornography is now known to be addictive – it alters the brain, changes behaviours, and wrecks the ability to form and hold normal relationships. In the US, it is shockingly claimed that 40% of all divorces are result of porn addiction. But it gets worse. Children are apparently accessing these videos online – not, initially, because they want to see such extreme portrayals, but because they want to learn about sex: what to expect and how to do it. And they are learning the lessons only too well, with the result that young boys now believe sex is not only violent, but that women enjoy it that way. Is it surprising we are seeing ever increasing numbers of rape? Is it surprising we are seeing growing numbers of violent sex attacks between children, with boys of eleven raping their eight year old sisters? A few years ago this sort of thing would have been unheard of, yet now it’s becoming commonplace. Because our society is not just overly sexualised, but has become acclimatised to perverted sex, stoked by pornography.

Petition asks U.S. government to make access to pornography ‘opt-in’ for internet users

November 19th, 2013 Jill Posted in Internet, Pornography Comments Off

By Kirsten Andersen, LifeSite News

A new WhiteHouse.gov petition is asking the federal government to require internet service providers to block access to pornography by default, following the introduction of a similar policy in the United Kingdom.

“We are asking that people who are interested in porn should have to seek it and choose it,” the petition reads. “They should have to ‘Opt In’ for it by making arrangements to receive it with their Internet Service Provider. Everyone else should be free from it and assumed ‘Opt Out.’”
 
The petition’s author, “M.G.” of Greenbrae, Calif., echoed the concerns of frustrated parents nationwide who struggle to shield their children’s eyes from porn in a world where Internet access is available to many kids 24/7.
 
“The average person, even children, can type in the word ‘cat’ or ‘home’ or ‘soup’ and instantly be inundated with offensive and disturbing pornographic images,” the petition states. “Parents and individuals have to go to great lengths to install Internet filters that often don’t weed out all porn. We are asking for greater protection and responsibility from Internet Service providers and our country.”
 
As of this writing, the petition has been active for three weeks and has garnered roughly 35,000 signatures. It must reach 100,000 signatures in the next five days to become eligible for a response from the White House.

Pornography: Loaded Questions

November 18th, 2013 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

From Youthworks

Last month, we were all captivated by Channel 4’s Porn on the brain documentary. The show followed Martin Daubney, former editor of Loaded, as he explored the impact of online pornography on teenage brains. Through the course of the investigation, it was proved for the first time that regular use of pornography can have an addictive effect, similar to that of alcohol or substance abuse. The programme also highlighted one teenager, Callum, whose addiction was shockingly severe. Martin spoke to Youthwork’s Jamie Cutteridge.

What was the inspiration for you to get involved in this project, bearing in mind your background in this industry?

I left Loaded three years ago. I struggled with being a father and being the editor of Loaded. It was difficult to be a dad and a lad. So, I went from managing multi-million pound budgets to managing a toddler. It really was an awakening. I had a moment of clarity where I just sat down and realised that all the time I’d been at Loaded I had been just playing a role. And fatherhood was absolutely pivotal to that because I got to a stage where I thought, ‘Do I want my son to know that I’m doing this? Do I want my son to see that I’m working for a magazine with half-naked women in it?’ So, I wrote an article for the Daily Mail and it exploded really. Suddenly the Daily Mail article found its way towards Channel 4, and Channel 4 had been looking for a way of doing a porn documentary.

How did the project start?

We had to literally go around the world to find an academic with gravitas who was prepared to be attached to the project. I think people were extremely nervous that the opposite would be found. If we’d found that porn was completely harmless I think that would have been a lot more damaging, because then we’d have serious academics being placed in the realms of case studies for ‘pro-pornographers.’ Nobody ever wanted that and we had several academics withdraw from the project. So we were delighted that Dr Valerie Voon had the fortitude and courage to see it through, because without that, I think it would have just been another chin rubbing romp through what porn does. What I really hope is that this is now going to be taken more seriously within the realms of academia.

Online porn: Can schools keep pupils safe and innocent?

October 28th, 2013 Jill Posted in Children/Family, Pornography Comments Off

By Judith Burns, BBC News

Concerns about children's exposure to graphic sexual images online have led to calls for primary pupils to hear about the dangers of pornography. So how should schools broach the subject and what is the right age to start?

At Castledyke Primary in Barton, North Lincolnshire, head teacher Rosie Pugh has adopted a robust approach to building children's resilience to any explicit material they may see online and is in no doubt that it needs to start early. 

She fears there are children vulnerable to abuse among her pupils and describes some of the stories she has heard from families as "eye-popping".

Her views echo fears voiced by Ofsted earlier this year in a report which found that a lack of quality age appropriate sex and relationships education in more than a third of schools risks leaving children vulnerable to inappropriate sexual behaviours and sexual exploitation.

The BBC sat in on a session for seven- to nine-year-olds at Castledyke run by Lynnette Smith, who teaches sex education and trains teachers in the subject in North Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.

The New Narcotic

October 9th, 2013 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

By Morgan Bennett, Public Discourse

New neurological research reveals that porn is as potently addictive as heroin or cocaine.

[...]  But what if I told you that the internet “is the greatest drug dealer in the United States?”
 
A growing body of research supports such an assertion as it relates to a new “narcotic”: internet pornography. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health estimated that in 2008 there were 1.9 million cocaine users. According to the Central Intelligence Agency, there are an estimated 2 million heroin users in the United States, with some 600,000 to 800,000 considered hardcore addicts. Compare these numbers to the 40 millionregular users of online pornography in America.
 
Neurological research has revealed that the effect of internet pornography on the human brain is just as potent—if not more so—than addictive chemical substances such as cocaine or heroin. In a statement before Congress, Dr. Jeffrey Satinover, a psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, physicist, and former Fellow in Psychiatry at Yale, cautioned:

20% of boys in late teens ‘dependent on porn,’ UK study finds

October 7th, 2013 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

By Ben Johnson, LifeSite News

As pornography pervades the culture, porn addicts are getting younger and younger. According to a new survey in the UK, 20 percent of boys in their late teens say they are “dependent on porn.”

According to the University of East London, one-fifth of boys said they could not become sexually stimulated without watching pornography.
 
In all, 97 percent of boys and 80 percent of girls who responded to the survey said they had viewed porn. Nearly a quarter of boys and eight percent of girls said they have tried to stop watching pornography but could not kick the habit.
 
The study involved a survey of 177 young people between the ages of 16 and 20.
 
Psychologists have known for years that repeated viewing of hardcore porn floods the brain's ventral striatum with dopamine, producing a euphoric effect similar to drug addiction.
 
As with drug addicts, in time the viewer requires harder and harder material to get the same “high.” Of those surveyed, 13 percent of boys and 10 percent of girls said their online habits became "more and more extreme."

The Porn Factor

September 27th, 2013 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

By Judith Reisman, Salvo Magazine

The Path from Playboy to Sex Offender Is Well Traveled

In December 1953, Playboy magazine was launched and immediately began normalizing a new world order of autoerotic sexual fantasy. Hugh Hefner (until reading Kinsey in college, a virgin like most single young men) pledged that his "romantic" magazine would turn his "Playboy men" into skillful lovers, readying them for lifelong marriage. Yet his monthly magazine ridiculed virginity and marriage while glamorizing adultery and rape and showing consumers ways to trick women and children into illicit sex.

By 1969, millions of Playboy users, struggling with their unexpected, porn-induced "diminished arousal response," began eagerly embracing the amplified stimuli offered by Penthouse. This gave us another generation of intimacy and potency challenged men.

By 1974, millions of Penthouse users, struggling again with a diminished sexual response, turned to Hustler for help. Hello to yet another generation of arousal–challenged pornography addicts, millions of whom became pushovers for internet pornography.

Experiment that convinced me online porn is the most pernicious threat facing children today

September 26th, 2013 Jill Posted in Children/Family, Pornography Comments Off

By ex-lads' mag editor Martin Daubney, Mailonline

[...]  As the presenter of a Channel 4 documentary called Porn On The Brain, airing next Monday at 10pm, I'd been invited to sit in on a forward-thinking class led by sex education consultant Jonny Hunt, who is regularly asked into schools to discuss sex and relationships. To establish what these kids knew about sex – including pornography – he had asked the children to write an A-Z list of the sexual terms they knew, no matter how extreme.

Most of these children had just hit puberty and some were clearly still children: wide-eyed, nervous, with high-pitched voices.
 
Some of the girls were beginning their first forays into make-up. Several wore braces on their teeth. Everybody was smartly turned out in school uniform, and the most anti-authority statement in the room was a tie worn deliberately short. A One Direction pencil case lay on a desk. These were clearly good children, from good homes. So far, so very, very ordinary.

But when Jonny pinned their lists on the board, it turned out that the children's extensive knowledge of porn terms was not only startling, it superseded that of every adult in the room – including the sex education consultant himself.
 
Martin was shocked by what the teenagers said
 
'Nugget, what's that?' asked Jonny.

'A nugget is a girl who has no arms or legs and has sex in a porno movie,' chortled one young, pimply boy, to an outburst of embarrassed laughter from some, and outright revulsion from others.

The adults in attendance were incredulous at the thought that not only did this kind of porn exist, but that a 14-year-old boy may have actually watched it.

But the more mundane answers were just as shocking. For example, the first word every single boy and girl in the group put on their list was 'anal'.

When questioned, they had all – every child in a class of 20 – seen sodomy acted out in porn videos. I was stunned they even knew about it – I certainly hadn't heard of it at that age – let alone had watched it and as a result may even have wanted to try it.

New study: Porn activates the same addiction centers in the brain as alcohol and heroin

September 26th, 2013 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

By Kirsten Andersen, LifeSite News

A soon-to-be-published Cambridge University study of compulsive pornography users seems to confirm that porn use can become a physical addiction.

Cambridge researcher Dr. Valerie Voon studied 19 men aged 19 to 34 who had tried to quit pornography and failed, even after losing relationships and jobs because of their porn habit.
 
Voon scanned the men’s brains as they watched erotic imagery and found that they displayed the same addiction responses as those of alcoholics shown ads for booze, or drug abusers shown images of dealers.
 
“We found greater activity in an area of the brain called the ventral striatum, which is a reward center, involved in processing reward, motivation and pleasure,” Voon told the Sunday Times. “When an alcoholic sees an ad for a drink, their brain will light up in a certain way and they will be stimulated in a certain way. We are seeing this same kind of activity in users of pornography.”
 
Similarities between the compulsive behaviors of porn users and those struggling with chemical addictions have long been noted by the mental health community, but Voon’s study is believed to be the first of its kind to study the actual physical signs of addiction in the brain in response to pornography exposure.
 
Previous studies have shown that porn use leads to decreased sexual response over time, along with short term memory loss.
 
Voon’s study has not yet been published, but will be part of an upcoming British documentary called “Porn on the Brain” that will air September 30 on the UK’s Channel 4.

Hotels and the Pornography Plague: An Example of Moral Responsibility from Scandinavia

September 4th, 2013 Jill Posted in Pornography Comments Off

by Robert P. George and Hamza Yusuf, Public Discourse

While many American hotel executives refuse to rid their businesses of pornography, Petter Stordalen, owner of one of Scandinavia’s largest hotel chains, is leading the way forward.
 
A bit more than a year ago, we made public here on Public Discoursea letter we had sent to the chief executive officers of our nation’s largest hotel chains, respectfully asking them to stop offering pornography in their hotel rooms. We said:
 
We are, respectively, a Christian and a Muslim, but we appeal to you not on the basis of truths revealed in our scriptures but on the basis of a commitment that should be shared by all people of reason and goodwill: a commitment to human dignity and the common good. As teachers and as parents, we seek a society in which young people are encouraged to respect others and themselves—treating no one as an impersonal object or thing. We hope that you share our desire to build such a society.
 
Pornography is degrading, dehumanizing, and corrupting. It undermines self-respect and respect for others. It reduces persons—creatures bearing profound, inherent, and equal dignity—to the status of objects. It robs a central aspect of our humanity—our sexuality—of its dignity and beauty. It ensnares some in addiction. It deprives others of their sense of self-worth. It teaches our young people to settle for the cheap satisfactions of lust, rather than to do the hard, yet ultimately liberating and fulfilling, work of love.
 
One hotel chain, Marriott, informed us that they were “phasing out” offerings of pornography in their hotel rooms. Another, Hilton, defended its participation in the pornography business by appealing, dubiously in our view, to libertarian principles. Others, so far as we can tell, have ignored our plea.
