AN INTERACTIVE & AGE APPROPRIATE PRESENTATION

Why it’s critical to educate students on the harmful effects of pornography—even if it’s not part of the curriculum or considered taboo…

Although the negative effects of online pornography are well-documented, few realize that one demographic is especially at risk. Studies show that most young people have been exposed to porn by age 13, British Board of Film Classification. (2020). Young people, pornography & age-verification. BBFC. Retrieved from https://www.bbfc.co.uk/about-classification/researchCOPY  and according to a nationally representative survey of U.S. teens, 84.4% of 14-18 year-old males and 57% of 14-18 year-old females have viewed pornography. Wright, P. J., Paul, B., & Herbenick, D. (2021). Preliminary insights from a U.S. probability sample on adolescents’ pornography exposure, media psychology, and sexual aggression. J.Health Commun., 1-8. doi:10.1080/10810730.2021.1887980COPY  Because the brain is not yet fully developed during teenage years, young people are particularly susceptible to the potential harms of pornography.

Unfortunately for students, schools have few—if any—resources dedicated to preventing addressing this issue in effective ways. This is especially concerning considering all the research that shows how pornography normalizes sexual violence and unhealthy relationship dynamics. Wright, P. J., Tokunaga, R. S., & Kraus, A. (2016). A meta-analysis of pornography consumption and actual acts of sexual aggression in general population studies.
