Young adults and Pornography

Today, young adults are more familiar with pornography then previous generations.  A study was conducted amoung college age students and the findings are interesting.  According to the study, young women are less likely to look at porn daily, and don’t see it as a problem if someone does.  In fact, they state that it’s an acceptable way to express sexuality. The author of the study states that we are living in the age of “pocket porn,” where porn is always available. 

This is an interesting study as it shows us just how normalized pornography has become in our culture.  Sex Addiction Los Angeles. Take a look:

How to find good sex education

People ask me how they can find good sex education for their kids and when they will know if the information is good information.  I think the most important factor in deciding whether the information is good is if the information is age appropriate.  Making sure kids feel comfortable hearing the information can make a difference in whether they can take in the information and use it constructively, or feel shamed about it.  Shaming can shut them down at best and traumatize them at worst.  Sex Therapy Los Angeles
