It is not going to go away.
It is too big for be left to the ‘sex educators’.
Article like this paint a sobering picture: http://www.collectiveshout.org/growing_up_in_pornland_girls…
SEX and LOVE have become divorced. I’m not talking about ‘now he is going to be with me forever’ love, I’m talking about basic dignity. I’m talking about love as a very real kind of FELT CONNECTION between two humans.
And its not just women that are affected, although they may be better at articulating what is going on...
Porno-consciousness is a disease and 100% of young people growing up in today's world will be exposed to it. Probably long before they even reach puberty.
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS THIS NEEDS TO BE TALKED ABOUT?
As horrible as this reality is, we need to get it out in the open and deal with it. There is no point hiding this festering wound and pretending that it isn't there.
Condoms are not going to stop this disease from spreading.
This is more contagious than the bubonic plague.
Kids are getting exposed to this younger and younger.
Most ADULTS are going to be adversely affected by watching porn, whether they realise it or not.
So what effect do you think its going to have on a 12 year old? How about a 9 year old?
The porn 'industry' is not going to go away overnight.
The internet is here to stay.
Parental controls! Are you kidding?
The emotional landscape is toxic. Kids are under attack. The innocence of their sexuality is being polluted daily.
There is no point arguing about WHOSE FAULT IT IS. We are too late for that... Its like being sad about the devastation of the Amazonian Rainforest to feed human greed and burger addiction...
No, what we need to do is to somehow find a way to create something new out of this toxic wasteland. It is time to reunite SEX with LOVE. To start to explore the mystery and discover what is possible between human beings. Time to create a NEW NORMAL for sexuality. And it begins with YOU.
Are you ready to bring the magic back into your sexuality? Are you willing to reject all that is not loving?
Imagine what would happen if women everywhere started to just say NO to ALL pornography-polluted interactions. Just NO. I am not going to demean myself. I am not interested in disconnection and acting.
Sacred sexuality is real. It is not common but IS potent. If your heart has been touched just as deeply as your genitals then you will know it.
I repeat: PORN IS NOT GOING TO GO AWAY
With a vacuum of wholesome sexuality, pornography has become perceived as ‘what is normal’ by a whole generation of kids growing up online.
We need something better. Something to fill the vacuum.
Something real and substantial to educate young people about their full potential as living, breathing, growing sexual beings.
It is not good enough to attempt to deny that kids have sexuality. OF COURSE they are going to explore it.
But what if we could role model something more beautiful?
Something so potent that it makes porno look like the cheap C-grade acting that it is?
Its a big call, right?
And I want to be honest with you. I’m not there yet.
Something in me still gets pulled about by porn images.
I don't see them out but they still affect me...
There is power in sex for sure. We have to be discerning.
I want to PURIFY my sexuality. To strip out all that is polluted. All that is FAKE and make believe.
In the face of this epidemic there are SO MANY opportunities for those who have the courage to explore them.
What if women everywhere began to reject EVERYTHING that didn’t feel good in their bodies?
What if young boys took a stand and began to seek out some high quality content on sexuality?
What if we actually made it easy for such materials to be found?
Imagine a World where kids attempting ridiculous porno style manoeuvres just got LAUGHED AT.
Its a big call. We have a long way to go.
I don’t know HOW but my heart has no choice but to begin.
I begin in the only place that I can.
I begin with ME.
