A number of studies conclude that pornography is demeaning to women and harms adults who consume it. Now we are learning about the harm pornography does to children who are exposed to it at an early age. Even accidental exposure to explicit sexual images can warp a child’s view of sexuality and taint relationships well into adulthood.
According to a survey of divorce lawyers, pornography is a factor in almost 2 of 3 divorces. Many of the marriages may have been doomed from the start because of a damaged view of sexuality formed as a child. Daniel Weiss of Focus on the Family Action says children accept the reality that they are presented with.
"This possibly violent, very degrading image or depiction of sexuality becomes the normal depiction of sexuality in the child’s mind."
