“A Traumatized Generation” – Why the Internet Porn Problem Is Worse Than You Might Think

Imagine the scene: an interviewer sits down, one-by-one, with a  group of bright, shy, polite, even giggly middle-school students for an upcoming  documentary. One-by-one, he carefully asks the students about pornography on the internet . . . and one-by-one, the children display “an extensive knowledge of porn terms…that superseded that of every adult in the room” including a sex education consultant.”

That scene became reality, over and over again, in the lead-up to a new documentary entitled “Porn on the Brain”. It examines the breathtaking effects that widespread pornography has had on an entire generation of teenagers.

I strongly encourage you to read THIS ARTICLE from the Christian Post. It describes why Martin Daubney, a former “soft-porn” magazine editor, is now warning parents to protect their children from the effects of pornography.

Why? Check out these quotes from the article:

  • “Daubney was even more dismayed that much of the hardcore stuff that the students were watching had already altered boys’ sexual expectations for girls, leading to disappointment and revulsion when the reality of the girls’ bodies did not match that of the porn stars.”
  • “Daubney also studied the long-term effects of pornography addiction and discovered that many had lost relationships, jobs, and money because of porn.”
  • “Daubney said that the most vile thing he learned during his study was a leading anti-pornography campaigner’s assertion that pornography’s increased violence towards women.”

And the conclusion: “Pornography is sexually traumatizing an entire generation of boys.”

As a father of three kids between the ages of 10-13, this article definitely disturbs me, and it serves as a wake-up call, too. Isn’t it time for parents to take a stand against pornography? Isn’t it time for men to stand up and fight – for the sake of our children, our women, our own hearts.
