Internet porn – the ultimate educator for normalising abuse and violence in our relationships

Sex education could be fundamental in developing intimacy and loving relationships, and appreciating and understanding our body. But the reality is that thousands of young men and women are caught up in daily internet porn consumption that has become about abuse and violence, portraying a degrading way of viewing our bodies. The constant bombardment and stream of porn has already proved to cause serious health issues, such as anxiety, depression and addictive behaviour.

“What kind of society do we live in, that endorses violent and degrading visions of women’s and men’s bodies and presents this in such a prominent and pervasive place on our screens and in our media?”

… and then, expect our kids not to take this on?

Are we resistant to admitting the fact that we live in a society that encourages men and women to de-value themselves and each other, engendering a sexuality centred on a highly reduced form of sex which we call ‘normal’?

While we may ask what kind of society we are living in today, it is down to us as individuals to shape the society we live in. So who are we allowing to shape it?

Why do we promote sex as a consumer good that you access, get your release, and that’s it? Sex has become a commodity.

Are we going to continue to leave sex education to the mercy of the internet and do we really want the porn industry to set the standards for ourselves and our children?
