You have heard of a New York minute, but have you ever heard of an Internet minute?  In just one minute on the Internet, 204 million emails have been sent, 47,000 new apps have been downloaded, 1.3 million YouTube videos have been downloaded, and one of the most popular Porn sites has been visited 28,000 times.

By the time you have finished reading this article just one out of 4.2 million porn sites will have had over 100,000 visits; one of those visits could have been by your child.

According to attendees at the “Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation 2014” summit held in May in Washington D.C., there is a major public health crisis involving young teens. 

Anti-porn organizations are calling this outbreak a “porn pandemic.” This is not simply a trend or fad; it is causing psychological damage to young teenager boys and physical damage to women. 

By the time boys reach the ages 11-14, most of them having already seen porn; however, this is not “playboy bunny” porn that you find hidden under someone’s mattress. Just as the Internet has advanced, so has hardcore pornography. Today’s pornography includes graphic images and videos showing degrading acts of misogynistic violence.

At ages 11-14, a child’s brain has not developed or matured. When he views extremely violent pornography, he will not understand what he is viewing and his psychological development will be damaged.  It doesn’t stop there. As he ages and continues to view this kind of material, he will undoubtedly develop a strong aggressive attitude towards women.

The CEO of Dublin Rape Crisis, Ellen O’Malley, attended the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation summit and stated that over the last few years, they have seen an escalation in violence regarding sexual assaults. This is no question this results from easy access to severe pornography.

Not all teens go looking for these images. Porn producers and companies have targeted the younger teens and know how to catch them. By using tactics such as mildly misspelling a popular website, or using a misleading advertisement, porn companies will lure kids and hook them in less than a minute.

Whether your teen is looking for pornography or finds it accidentally, it can be developmentally damaging. Protect your teen with an Internet content filter such as Net Nanny that blocks explicit content. With Net Nanny, parents can monitor their child’s online activity and receive notifications when a child attempts to visit an inappropriate site.
