Growing Desire - Teens and Pornography

By Stephen C. Schultz


Pornography is an ever increasing concern for teens. The static, printed soft-core magazines of past generations are not the norm today. Video and the interactive media of computer games provides a whole different exposure to young developing brains. I see requests for help from parents everyday whose sons are involved in compulsive computer use. These families are worried about their sons school, friends, motivation and social competence.




For those who may not have seen the Texas CBS 7 series on teens and pornography, I have included the link below. Oxbow Academy is featured in this investigative report.



Teen Porn Addiction 2


This is always a difficult topic to discuss and one that society has yet to get a grasp on. If you are a clinician that works with teens, you may have seen an increase in these issues among your clientele. There is help...there is hope!

Have you seen, also, the movie Don Jon? with Joseph Gordon Levitt. It does an excellent job, I thought, of portraying exactly this, how warped a young man's view of sexuality can become due to overconsumption of pornography.
No Gurukarm, I haven't seen that particular movie. Society seems to look at this issue from a moral perspective, and yes there is right and wrong. However, many of these kids get exposed to porn as early as 4 years old now days. This then becomes more of a developmental concern and neuro-plasticity issue as they reach adolescence.
