Teen Porn and Pregnancy

Teen boys admit watching a lot of online porn  and some post their own schoolgirl porn – what does this teach them about respect for women? Schools spent a lot of money purchasing infant simulators but the attention showered on these girls for nursing such ‘fake infants’ meant that more actually fell pregnant …

These links clearly advocate reasonable factual sex education is needed and it seems that both families and institutions are failing in this area. Yet Australia did a TV series,  Luke Warm Sex which is available online, that did just that! Awkward but frank it is much-needed education – NO explicit material!

What solutions would you suggest?

  1. Once fear became the response to control joy and respect went out the window. research also suggests that it is the power (consumption, ownership, possession, control) aspect that feeds into porn. Sad.

  2. I don’t know the answers either. When I was young, sex was a mystery and some teens got pregnant because they didn’t really understand exactly how to prevent and unwanted pregnancy. These days, the information is out there and abortion is legal in the US, and yet teen pregnancy is still a huge problem. In some cases, having a baby is considered a way to show your love for you boyfriend, in others the young woman wants someone who will love her (the baby) and in others, there is pressure to have a child for the welfare benefits. I don’t think there’s just one cause for this problem, which probably means there’s not just one answer either. But it is sad, because children are being born into situations where they can’t possibly be cared for properly and they suffer because of it.

  3. No simple solutions. 😦 And I don’t think parents today (who think they are so enlightened) are any more enlightened or honest or helpful than parents of past generations. 😦
    I “liked” some of the comments above mine…because they shared things I was thinking about, too.
    As for porn and it’s availability online to even little children ( 😦 ), I think those who invented the internet didn’t think before sharing. It’s like they “opened the barn door” and then said, “OOPS! all the cows got out!” 😦
    Great post, Kate!
    HUGS!!!

  4. There are no easy answers. Sex education, goes without saying, is a must. But the free access to social media which contains all kind of content, early puberty, lack of parental control are also some reasons for it being rampant.

  5. It will be a long journey, but community and cultural values need to turn toward the attitude that sex should be an expression of monogamy, love and commitment, and not simply a source of pleasure.

  6. What about the realities that if you are in a long term committed relationship of adults with stable living conditions and pre pregnancy health prep; both parents, the child and any subsequent children will have a much better life. When I went to schools to show my baby to teens in child care classes I emphasized how my husband and I could share tasks and support each other and how important spending months getting your pre pregnancy health right was. With my girls I emphasize how difficult sharing a child with an ex partner you don’t like can be (from TV & friends) and the only time to have a child is when you really know and can trust the child’s other parent.

    • Great points, glad you can help educate at schools and your own children – well done!
      Here is oz 67% are single families … so we certainly needed you over here to teach!

  7. This is an extremely important subject, I have no answers. We have a problem here in the UK with young girls having babies. Once is an accident, two/three/four or more are not yet you see this here, its not a case of sex education with some of these girls, its a case of well “I get benefits” – our Benefit system has been abused by those that don’t care. The NHS is collapsing for lack of funds. The answer to youngsters not caring for their bodies or each others?
