For eight years, Martin Daubney was the editor of the British lad mag Loaded—very similar to Maxim or VHM in the US, except with more nudity.
Daubney had heard some of the hype that porn might be damaging the minds of young people so he set out to investigate it for himself.
By the end of his exploration, his mind was forever changed. He writes:
“Like many parents, I fear that my boy’s childhood could be taken away by pornography.
So we have to fight back. We need to get tech-savvy, and as toe-curling as it seems, we are the first generation that will have to talk to our children about porn.
We have to tell our kids that pornographic sex is fake and real sex is about love, not lust. By talking to them, they stand a chance. If we stick our head in the sand, we are fooling only ourselves.”
“We are the first generation that will have to talk to our children about porn.” Chilling words, but right on the money!
How To Do It
So how on earth does one begin to broach the topic of porn to their kids? Here’s an amazing resource that will help with that, It’s called Good Pictures Bad Pictures: Porn-Proofing Today’s Young Kids.
I was sent this book a few weeks back by Kristen Jenson (one of the authors) to review.
I began reading it with the intention of endorsing it. After the first page I forgot about that and began reading it for my own edification.
It’s terrific. It’s an easy and effective way for parents to begin an empowering conversation about the dangers of pornography and give their young kids a specific plan of action to use when they are exposed to it (that’s right, when, not if, when).
[learn_more caption=”Read More About The Book”] It only takes a few taps on a mobile device for a curious young child to find an endless supply of deviant, hard-core, and addicting pornography—all for free.
Unfortunately, many young kids are being exposed to pornography without the slightest clue that it can damage their developing minds. Good Pictures Bad Pictures is a comfortable, read-aloud story about a mom and dad who teach their child what pornography is, why it’s dangerous, and how to reject it.
Using easy-to-understand science and simple analogies, this ground-breaking book engages young kids to porn-proof their own brains. The 5-point CAN DO Plan teaches kids how to avoid the brain-warping images of pornography and minimize the troubling memories of accidental exposure that often tempt kids to look for more and lead them into a dark and destructive addiction.
To stay safe in the digital age, kids must install an internal filter in their own brain. Good Pictures Bad Pictures shows them how. Parents will appreciate this resource to porn-proof their kids because it makes a difficult discussion easy and empowering.
How? By teaching kids simple concepts about the brain and the process of addiction, and by giving them a specific strategy for keeping safe from the poison of pornography.[/learn_more]
I was so impressed that I wrote to her, thanked her for writing it and asked if she’d like to do a giveaway on my site? I was expecting her to say, “sure, how does 5 copies sound?” Instead she said, “Do you think 50 would be okay?” “Ah, yes. I think 50 would be okay!” Learn more about the good work Kristen and Gail are doing by visiting and subscribing to their site.
