    loving6 and Pinkzy, you are absolutely right. Many kids learn from what they see and hear from pron and their friends. I know I had zero education from my parents.

    And the type of pron that is easily accessed and freely available at any time of the day to our children is very concerning. It is completely unlike what was available when I was 11. The times have changed and we need to update our response accordingly.

    My girl has known about sex since she cold understand anything....born and bred farm girl.

    There's a video and articles avaliable for teen boys and girls about pron and body image from my Women Against Feminism group, so they'll watch them at an age-appropriate time.

    I'm certainly not going to tell them that watching and enjoying pron is evil and will turn them into women-haters and whores, that's just another rung on the ladder towards making them sexually numb in adulthood.

    I had no "the talk" from my mum (single parent) but I imagine that it must of been a difficult topic to bring up with your son. Unfortunately, I too learnt a lot about s.ex from porn. Fortunately, I'm one of those who listened to my partners and didn't impose any preconceptions once I was sexually active.

    Damn, I could hardly figure out where to put the damn thing! At 18, who knew it was so difficult to find?!

    unfortunately DP started young 11 so he doesn't understand why it's so important to me to raise my children differently. He has also been watching porn since a young age and I believe has a few issues that relate to this. He honestly sees no issue with the industry or the things it teaches our children . I'm hoping my son and daughter will feel differently and I don't believe just one 'the talk' will achieve this but hopefully over a few conversations and with good guidance I can help them to see these things themselves which will hopefully be far more effective. If my son turns out like you I think I'd be pretty happy , and I am hoping I won't have any trouble talking to him about these topics (though that's probably a little naive of me)
