They don't know what's good for them. Later on in life they will need a tutor on what to do and how to do it. Sex does not come with a manual.

They have no idea of the real world. Of course porn is not damaging and if they think it is they have been badly brought up

I think the internet is make teen think different about a boy girl relationship. She might view women control as what he wants by viewing thing not as a shy girl but as a princess. He the teen boy will view all the different role and fanitasy more and stare at her body be more will to ask her to do more thing that he saw. Yes America need to study the longterm effects that is like abuse to others from what they view and the anti family view of closet case human depression and mind game that young teen will show different view point in America furture leader.

The article wanders mixing porn with nudity. Porn is a separate issue. Young people are sexually charged by hormones. It is perfectly normal to titillate or be titillated. Porn is getting a charge out of watching others have sex professionally.

The answer is simple: Parenting. While you can't totally prevent your children's exposure, you can raise them in a way that it's not going to damage them, because you've taught them, you know, VALUES and MORALS. What a concept. *smh*

You can try, but kids ultimately become who they are regardless of your efforts.
