I'm not anti-sex worker. People should have the right to do what they like when they like with their bodies so long as it's consensual, and I don't want to talk bad about that. However, nothing is working to get my kid to stop looking at porn.
A lock on the computers turned into a lock on my phone turned into a lock on the television because of the searches he's doing with anything that will search. I have to lock him out of the computer completely because even safe searches didn't work, he is well versed on the internet. He's not looking at playboys or old 70s stuff either, you know what the internet is like now. I'm concerned about it damaging how he views sex/what turns him on later in life.
I've told him this. I've told him these images can damage his brain. He's too young to process this stuff. That does not affect him. I don't want to be anti woman or anti sex worker, but I'm running out of things to say short of the negative side of the industry. There are sex workers who aren't as consensual, who use drugs or whatever so they can get on camera and do the kinds of things pornography is demanding of them anymore. I don't think they're all like that, hell I know they aren't, but is it okay to present the negatives to him since he just won't stop?
He does not like the idea of women being hurt, he does not like the idea of drugs, he does not like that sometimes sex is forced on people, I know all this from other conversations. I don't want to turn him into a republican thinking he needs to protect women from themselves, so is it okay to talk about the less consensual side now, and address the right to do what you want with your body, even if it seems unsavory, later?
