The Reality Today of Teens & Porn

This month we want to focus on some great non-profits that we feel are extremely beneficial to our cause. Today, I want to introduce you to Culture Reframed.

Culture Reframed addresses pornography as the public health crisis of the digital age. They strive in educating the public on how to recognize and respond to the role pornography can play in sexual violence, unhealthy relationships, internet and sex addictions, negative self-image, sexual dysfunction, depression, sexually transmitted infections, injuries, and other health problems. They aim to empower participants to create positive and lasting change in families and communities harmed by the sexually abusive and hypersexualized media that marks the digital age.

Teens are watching porn like never before. Porn sites get more visitors each month than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined. It’s free and easily accessible, not to mention that you can also find porn on common platforms like YouTube and many more. Many of these kids are tech savvy enough to know how to clear their browser history so their parents have no idea. With so many kids having their own smartphones and the whole internet at their fingertips (many times under no supervision), it’s no wonder we’re having such a crisis.

Some warning signs include withdrawing from activities, shutting down devices suddenly and spending long periods of time in the bathroom. One of the things that most people don’t realize is porn can be as addictive as cocaine. You can help protect your teen by installing parental control apps and having open conversations with your teen.
