Dr. Janet Rosenzweig asks What’s the impact of
porn on kids? in her October 22nd blog for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Excerpt: If your children have access to a device with Internet access -- and it's a good
bet that they do -- it's an equally good bet that they've been exposed to
pornographic images. Sexually explicit images and erotic art have had a place
in almost every culture, so observing a sexual image is not necessarily
harmful. But it's all about context. Pornographic images are often reflections
of sex that have nothing to do with real life and young people lack the context
to know that. The very fact that such a private act is being shared with the
world obliterates the concept of intimacy, and intimacy is an important aspect
of sexual health and safety.
