After having read several posts here on NoFap about how sex ed and porn can be related, I felt like I should do a post specifically on this topic. For any parents out there, please do your kids a favor, and teach them about what porn can do as part of sex ed. Although my parents did give me sex ed, they never taught me about what porn can actually do. Maybe it's because they didn't know, or maybe it's because they didn't want to talk about it. Regardless, you have the opportunity to do things differently. Look where I ended up as a result of not being taught, I'm seventeen and struggling to stay away from porn and it's probably changed my life forever. And guess what, porn isn't going anywhere, and it's just going to become more readily available and more extreme, so we have to start educating on it. If we don't, we're going to have a serious epidemic on our hands here really quickly, as if we don't have enough of one already. If I ever have kids, you can be sure that porn will be a part of sex ed for them. I'll tell them about the negative effects that porn can have on you, and how it can change your life for the worse. Masturbating I'll leave up to them, but I'll warn them not to let it become an obsession. I still believe that masturbating in moderation is a normal and natural part of sexuality as long as you aren't addicted like most of us here are, probably because of porn. Please, have some sense, and don't let your kids fall into the trap that is porn! Thanks for reading this long post. I hope it'll at least reach a few of you.
