Dispelling Myths Created By Pornography

Dispelling Myths Created By Pornography

I support a person’s desire to watch pornography. However, it should not be used as a substitute for sex-ed. Today, people get the majority of their information about sex from watching porn, and there is a lot of miseducation happening. When porn is their only educational resource, people develop insecurities, low self-esteem, and body hatred because of the inaccurate messages about how sex “should” be, and how our bodies “should” be.

The video below is about dispelling myths created by hardcore pornography. Cindy Gallop talks about what she learned from dating and having sex with younger men.

The website, www.makelovenotporn.com, created by Cindy Gallop, is a resource for accurate information about sex and our bodies. However, it is very limited information. We need more websites with easy-to-access, accurate, beneficial information about real-life sex. We can’t leave it up to hardcore porn to be the leading resource for sex-ed.

Check out her video and then check out the website www.makelovenotporn.com. See how much of what you know about sex comes from pornography, and see how much is correct….

*The Feature image: Dale DaBone is a porn star I met in 2012 at The Museum Of Sex in NYC. I was there on a class trip with other sex therapists. He was at the museum with Sirius Playboy Radio, promoting a product. I asked him to take a picture with me. It seemed like an appropriate “feature image” for this post. For more info about Dale DaBone, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dale_DaBone
