The Effects of Online Porn
The average age of first exposure to online pornography is 13 to 14 years old. Most of that exposure is unwanted.

The trick is to have an open line of communication so your teen can discuss things they’ve seen online.

Sex education doesn’t cover pleasure or anything beyond reproduction. Where do kids find this information? Online. The examples and information they find doesn’t give an accurate representation of reality.

Encourage your child to reduce social media usage and get involved in some form of physical fitness for the dopamine hits that social media provides.

Listen as Dr. Bryant Paul joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to discuss the effects of online porn on youth.
