Pornography and Masturbation

Ben: Yes, you're right. Porn wasn't a huge problem in the past. But things have changed.

Thanks to the internet, you can sit in the safety of your own home and watch real live girls talk, and move, and make love, in full colour and close-up. That simply didn't exist for our grandparents.

The problem is so bad that in 2012 the UK prime minister forced porn filters onto all mobile and broadband services. People must choose to opt in or out of porn.

Did you know that the idea of "paying on-line" by credit card was invented so people could pay for porn videos? And now porn is often free, instantly available to everyone. It even pops up by accident on your screen!

Today with a phone or iPad you can retire to the privacy of your bedroom and do whatever you like. You can even search for porn that fulfils your particular desires. And the world number-one porn search is for "step-mother" - Eeuuww!

You can send your own personal porn, too. On Snapchat or Instagram or Twitter. You can go to a chat-room and exchange intimate photos of each other.

The pressure of sex ADVERTS is so great that Google had to set up a total ban, strictly enforced for several years now.

Adam: Well ... surely most of it's very mild? Glamorous women in tiny bikinis, or occasionally topless. It's not that bad? Sometimes they look wonderful, God's creation!

Yes?
