by Jane Wilson, Telegraph: “I know the other boys watch it, but he doesn’t.” An older friend was sharing her concerns over what material her 13-year-old son might – or might not – be viewing online. “I don’t think he has any interest in that stuff.” The likelihood is that she’s wrong.

The Pornographic Double Bind

Nov 2, 2015 by

By Mark Regnerus, First Things: Forty-three percent of American men (and 9 percent of women) now report using pornography within the past week. It’s not an adolescent thing, either, as data from the newRelationships in America survey reveals. For men, porn use peaks in their twenties and thirties before beginning to diminish slowly. Indeed, sixty-year-old men are only slightly less likely to have viewed pornography within the past week than men in their twenties and thirties. Among women,...
