My first lessons about sex didn’t come from sex education lessons, but were filtered through pre-pubescent boys, who received their information from porn. A 2008 report into youth exposure to pornography, carried out in the US, found that from a pool of 5,000 undergraduate students, 93% of boys and 62% of girls had been exposed to internet porn before the age of 18.

If a man did some of the horrible violent sexual acts I have seen (regrettably) in “porn,” he’d hopefully be locked away in prison! But because these acts are in pornographic magazines, this makes it okay?? Think about it!
