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.
