    "Should porn be on the school curriculum?"

    So I glanced at the TV this morning to see this as the topic on the screen.

    I was not imagining it:

      Far too young to watch, surely?

      Children are now exposed to porn from a very early age, and it is nigh on impossible to avoid this. So it seems logical to me that schools should educate children in this area - teaching them about exploitation, respect, relationships...

      Porn normalises sex without respect, love, any sort of meaning beyond getting your rocks off. Surely it is better if children are made aware of something better, something more substantial?

      And there it is, in a nutshell. But watch it they do.

      It's a hard one...

      It's pretty vile when you're not in the right frame of mind, mind.

      It's too graphic for kids to be exposed to really, it could warp their minds, in fact it's been shown to do so.

      But what is telling them not to watch it going to do? Drilling in a don't watch porn ethic, much like the don't do drugs ethic may make more kids do the opposite in an attempt to rebel against the system.
      And if that happens it'll be the School's fault for telling kids about it, parents should put filters on their internet if they have kids, most do, some don't, some that don't understand it's their fault, others try and blame everyone else but themselves (twats).

      All very sensible, but surely this is part of sex ed so needs no tabloid approach on bbc sunday morning or even any time set aside by them to hold a high brow discussion?

      Ive noticed living in mainland Europe, plenty of sex shops with windows full of, well, all sorts of stuff, however, ive also noticed kids walking past them and not batting an eyelid. So, obviously they are used to it, and it is no big deal for them after a lifetime of exposure to it.. Im not sure I would have wanted my daughter having porn on the curriculum though. Nowadays, its probablly very hard for kids to avoid, since the internet revolution.

      I think it's a good idea. If they're taught early where to find the good stuff they'll get more out of it.

      There'd be some interesting subject matter: Giving amateur a chance, diversity and equal opportunities by watching interracial, DP day.

      Predicted press response to a serious issue. Makes sense to teach children about what they will encounter online etc.
