Talk 3: Porn & Me

Talk 3: Porn & Me

The problem:

The average age a child first views internet porn is 11.

PARENTS have learned to expect, and often dread, two sex talks with their children: the early lesson about the “birds and the bees” and the more delicate discussion of how to navigate a healthy sexual life as a young adult. But now they are wrestling with a third: the pornography talk.

Pornography is perhaps the world’s most underestimated drug. No one wants to come out and admit they have a problem. The shame and secrecy actually feed the addiction. It is a subject that no one really wants to talk about – yet 93% of boys and 62% of girls are exposed to internet porn before they turn 18 years old.

A solution:

The talks includes the following:

  • How exposed are South African high school learners to porn?
  • What is the effect of porn on our children. We share 4 case studies of South African teens that asked for help online.
  • What happens when I watch porn – the pathway to addiction?
  • We talk about the effect porn has on your sexual development, sexual functioning and relationships.
  • We talk about recovering from porn addiction – what does it entail?
  • We also talk about how to protect your kids against exposure to pornography.
  • How to talk to your kids about pornography.
  • A live demonstration of the solutions MOBIEG offers will also be done. It includes a free on-line  counseling service for young people.
