Be Aware: Porn Harms – How Does Pornography Affect Children?

Last Updated: February 20, 2014

Covenant Eyes Radio – Episode 107

[powerpress]

In this special series on Covenant Eyes Radio, we are addressing the harms caused by pornography.

This week we are talking about the ways children are impacted by seeing pornography. How does porn shape their sexual beliefs and behaviors?

Continuing from last week’s discussion, our three guests for our roundtable discussion are:

  • Noel Bouché, Vice President of pureHOPE, a national coalition that has spent 28 years educating the public about the impact of pornography on family, children, and culture.
  • Jan Meza, an ex-porn star who now is a part of the Pink Cross Foundation, speaking about the destructive nature of porn, both for the consumers and the performers.
  • Michael Leahy, a former sex addict, author of Porn Nation, and founder of BraveHearts, an international social justice organization that works to reduce consumer demand for the “products” of  sexual exploitation

Music for today’s podcast is “There is a Curse” by The Difficulty

    my husband haslooked at pornfor over 10 years. he doesn’t care if the kids wander over and see what he is looking at. I told him to please not look at it in the house, but he still does. iamnow in the process of divorcing him, but it will take time and I am afraid of how it is hurting the kids.

      @Kimberly – Thanks for your comment. It is sad to hear how stubborn your husband is being about this, not only because it is hurting your marriage, but because it is hurting your children. Unfortunately this is exactly one of the effects of pornography on people’s sexual beliefs. The more porn one views the more likely they are to think that children being exposed to porn is no big deal. Nothing could be further from the truth. Do you have anyone who could help you convince your husband about this?
