"83% of British kids have seen porn by the time they are 13!"

The rise of smartphones. Having the Internet in your pocket has its dangers.

FenellaFellorick Thu 06-Aug-15 21:06:38

sadly that's probably true.

I have really good parental controls and STILL discover things have slipped through that I find unacceptable.

That is scary. Porn is a public health crisis and is having a negative effect on adults and children. I feel so sorry for those children who are introduced to sex by porn and think that's what sex is.

I work with children and I just hadn't realised it was that high. It all makes sense. Plus, we really need to do more about this!

Just watching it now. The teenage boy who said he'd dump a girl if she had pubic hair! So so sad and wrong. Love the idea though of there being a GCSE IN sex!

Lavenderice Thu 06-Aug-15 21:15:29

Love the giving them razors idea!

Very sad to hear what the kids are saying, i like the idea of the lads shaving it all off down there thou, itchy !!

Psycobabble Thu 06-Aug-15 21:17:21

I'm quite shocked watching this !!! I only left school 13 years ago and certainly don't consider myself naive or a prude but oh my God !! I'm shocked about what the teacher is going to be talking to them about !! Is it really necessary ?!?!

Lavenderice Thu 06-Aug-15 21:20:22

Psychobabble it clearly is, we are the worst in the west for teenage pregnancy and STI's .

AuntieStella Thu 06-Aug-15 21:20:55

How was porn defined for that survey?

And also 'seen'?

Not gratuitously nit picking, but there 's a world of difference between someone searching for and watching, and someone who has accidentally seen a still.

Lavenderice Thu 06-Aug-15 21:22:14

Oh I have no truck with consensual porn for adults, it's just interesting to see how it influences kids

QuestioningStuff Thu 06-Aug-15 21:22:55

I think it's a brilliant idea. And so so necessary. I'm sadly not shocked at the ridiculous attitudes these boys have. Freely available porn is ruining our society.

Psycobabble Thu 06-Aug-15 21:23:05

How will learning about pleasure and giving kids sex toys going to do that though ?!?!

I'm genuinely asking because I'm shocked !!

Awholelottanosy Thu 06-Aug-15 21:24:01

Sadly I think it's very necessary.Young people are getting a wrong and damaging message about what's 'normal' in sex and if it isn't countered by correct information, men will just see women as sex objects and just there for their pleasure. Anal sex and 'gagging' is portrayed as everyday and something that is enjoyed by all women. What about the woman's pleasure? What about sensuality, respect, pleasure?

Psycobabble Thu 06-Aug-15 21:24:41

And after a quick internet search it appears teen pregnancy is at an all time low ?!

Lavenderice Thu 06-Aug-15 21:24:52

Because it's making it normal and teaching them to understand it all, rather than them making it up as they go along.

paulapompom Thu 06-Aug-15 21:25:18

A child I taught asked if I had seen a particularly nasty internet clip. (Which I had but wish I hadn't ). She was a lovely girl but peers had shown her this clip, she didn't want to tell them it made her feel sick so she tried to laugh it off. (I followed safeguarding btw). Lessons that show porn is unrealistic and sometimes harmful seem a good idea.

QuestioningStuff Thu 06-Aug-15 21:25:40

'If she can give me consent to shag her I'm sure I can come on her face'

Jesus fucking Christ I'd weep if that was my son

Lavenderice Thu 06-Aug-15 21:26:16

it's at an all time low FOR THE UK.

Psycobabble Thu 06-Aug-15 21:26:19

And yes I agree regarding the men's attitude towards women's part absolutley ! The way they are talkin about women at such a young age is really awful

WorzelsCornyBrows Thu 06-Aug-15 21:26:40

Well it might teach them about mutual joy and respect. These kids need to learn there's a difference between good, mutually enjoyable sex and porn sex.

Just out of interest, how do you know that porn is truly consensual. There's a lot of exploitation in the industry.

Lavenderice Thu 06-Aug-15 21:28:02

If you do your research into the actors then you know.

WorzelsCornyBrows Thu 06-Aug-15 21:28:05

Maybe teen pregnancy is at an all time low because if these boys are representative, they're preoccupied by jizzing on faces, oral and anal sex.

Awholelottanosy Thu 06-Aug-15 21:28:11

As an adult woman I've definitely noticed a difference in what men expect sexually from when I was younger, which totally comes from porn, including the demand that women are hairless.
