    Once they reach middle school level, they should be taught about the potential for porn addiction the same way they are taught about the potential for drug or alcohol addiction.

    • Not sure how old middle school is? (I am assuming 15/16) I think a lot more needs to be done about porn, its not like when I was younger and you had to be about 6 foot to be able to reach the magazines, its now so readily available to everyone.

        Middle school around here is 6-8th grade. I believe that education before that should be age appropriate. They way you’d tell a child to stay away from a lit cigarette, you tell them to stay away from certain pictures on the computer and on TV.

        Once you’ve got kids in that 12-14 year old age group that is middle school here, especially the boys, I think sharing with them stories of 20 year old guys who can’t function sexually because porn has killed their dopamine receptors might be what needs to be done to bring down the scary statistics about current users in the 18- to 30-year-old age group.

        I don’t want to say they are a lost generation, but we learned what exposure to Internet porn and no educational component did for them…it’s time to look at the next generation and start taking care of these problems and not ignore them for decades.

      • I think part of the problem is that sex still seems to be a taboo subject, which makes porn even more tabooer (if that is a word) I personally think we should be having age appropriate conversations with children at a young age.

        Simple things like calling body parts by the right name, starting very young.

        The other really important part of porn discussion (I think) is making sure if people are watching it at a young age (16-18) they realise it is a fantasy and in no way realistic or an indicator for how sex actually is or how bodies generally look.

        I agree with you that like drinking, smoking and drugs those conversations need to happen early on.
