How Big of a Problem is Porn?

Pretty darn big. Tim Chester states:

In my forthcoming book, Captured By a Better Vision: Living Pom-Free, I describe the spread of pomography as an epidemic. Here are some stats that back up this claim …

    The USA produces 89% of these web pages, what a terribly sad statistic for America to be leading.

    Agreed fellow Steve. I also found the fact on the “average first exposure age and 80% of teens” very saddening. It’s hard to believe how much the statistics of middle-school aged kids having sex has risen in the last 15 years or so. Advertisement, entertainment media, and other such things are aging kids too fast these days. Perhaps also the fact that almost all of them have a cell phone is doing that as well. That’s something else that baffles me. But is it really society, or is it the parents allowing this to saturate into their youth’s lives? I remember my middle school days… kid-life was simple!

    Lord, help us be good parents! To think of my infant (not quite yet born) son in contrast to these statistics is a little discomforting. But I know if I follow the Lord, he’ll help me “train him up in the way he should go” and see our world through the right lens. What a frightening challenge to be a parent in such days. I think I’ll really be looking forward to the next “weekends are for kids” post after this. haha. Those are always encouraging and a highlight in my day.

    Thanks to both Steve’s. To add to this, I can say that the number 1 viewed TV show in the world is Baywatch. Another American export.
