Porn in the News

Porn continues to make waves on popular news sites in our country.  Here are my picks for the last week.

First, the Huffington Post has an article online today that raises the issue of porn-induced erectile dysfunction (PIED).  It outlines the issues and gives some advice to the scores of young men in our society suffering from this condition.  You can check it out here.

Secondly, The Age ran a story late last week about the cover up of sexual abuse perpetrated by a year 1 student in a Victorian state school.  It raises a bunch of issues that Freda Briggs mentioned in her submission to the Senate Inquiry on the harms of pornography.  While the article doesn't mention porn specifically, it is clear that as our society becomes increasingly sexualised and at younger ages we'll continue to see this kind of thing happen.  You can view the article here.

Lastly, Time Magazine recently had the issue of porn as their cover story for the week.  They've been doing some follow up articles on the topic, one of which is about the need for parents to talk to their children about the issue.  It gives tips for parents on how to go about that conversation.  You can check it out here.
