Porn in School

Prof Christian Graugaard of Aalborg University in Denmark is calling for porn in the classroom. He is seriously suggesting the pornography should be shown in schools. And I have to agree with him. We are treating younger people in highschool like they are completely unaware of sex and porn -- and nothing could be further from the truth. The average 12 year old in North America has already seen porn. By the time kids reach highschool...wow, I can't imagine that any have failed to encounter porn. Let's be generous and say, 5% of highschool students have not seen porn. Well fuck... the education system should teach them something, shouldn't it?

The point is, younger people are regularly consuming porn and yet we pretend that they are clueless. We pretend that 50% of 15 year olds HAVE NOT had sex already...when they
have.  I am suggesting that we are doing them a disservice by talking down to them so much.  Do we really need to put condoms on bananas and bore them to tears?

Well, a leading sexologist from Denmark thinks we should critically discuss pornography with 8th and 9th graders because this is pretty much the only sex education they are actually getting. If nobody tells them that, 'hey, you don't have to change sex positions 25 times in 15 minutes to have a good time' they will think it is fucking normal. You know, 'anal sex really requires some warm up and you just can't shove it in like they do in porn' might save many a virgin ass!!

And how about teaching kids valuable lessons about body image and how to critically assess different
types of porn? Porn can be feminist. Porn can democratize sex and porn can deal with gender issue and many many other valuable lessons. We all have sex (ok, asexuals don't but I am confident that 0% of asexuals follow my blog because they have completely different interests.) If we all have sex, let's stop this nonsense of pretending that it's wrong and should never be seen. We all have bodies too -- an there is absolutely nothing wrong with thinking bodies are beautiful. We are wired that way and anyone that denies it has issues.

By avoiding the topic of porn, we are sending a clear already include sex and porn. 
message to kids that sex is wrong and viewing sex is not for them and we should all be a little bit scared of sex. We are losing the chance to educate them about healthy sexual relationships, on how to be critical of the messages being portrayed in porn, and by pretending it doesn't exist at all, we are ingraining them with the powerful idea that all sex is wrong and should never be talked about.  And we are losing the opportunity for having constructive conversations and helping people make meaningful decisions in their lives. Their actual (imperfect, not ideal) lives which
