You might be thinking.. okay, I could get on board with all the sex stuff. But come on, porn? What do you have to say about porn?
Well, there's a lot. Like how the average age kids see porn for the first time is 8 to 11. Or how 70% of students your age would say they've been exposed to it when they weren't looking for it and didn't want to see it.
We know a lot of people who watch porn, and so do you--actually 64% of people your age watch it at least once a week. Maybe just watch our intro video to find out what kinds of things we'll cover.
Watch McKenzie's story about her friend and intro to what you'll be learning & why it's important.

There's an organization that we really like called Fight The New Drug. They have a collection of videos. These videos share really important information and stories about porn and how people have been impacted by the porn industry.
Watch three of the videos down below and then right a repose. If you want to explore more of their videos check out: https://fightthenewdrug.org/ftnd-media/videos/
Four Day Plan:
FTND also created an awesome documentary series called Brain, Heart, World. Information for that is also down below. You'll click "Watch Now," and then you'll have to login. Feel free to use your own email to create your own account, but we've also created an account you can use to view the documentary.
The Brain episode is about the individual and the effect of porn on the hormones and chemical structure of the brains of the people who watch it.
The Heart episode is all about relationships and how watching porn can change the way that people see each other and the quality of their relationships.
The World is about the many connections between the porn industry and others like sex trafficking and sexual abuse. It sums up the other episodes and offers hope for healing from porn addiction.
