I had already a porn problem by the time those classes started. And maybe not only me in that classroom. If someone had come and presented to me things that I find on YBOP, it would've shaken me right there. But another 10 years had to pass by before I've discovered myself. And that's the problem.

What age do those classes start in your country? In mine we had our first one when I was 10 years old - certainly young enough to put some fear into us regarding porn. I think such classes need to start before high school because that's when there is a huge chance of exposure to sexual content.

If those classes start when they are teenagers, it does matter. Sexual education is important but staying away from porn is also very important. Both could fuck you up if you know nothing.

I think people will change their views on porn eventually. I read things on reddit.com/r/nofap and nofap.com all the time that give me hope. In my case I'm actually glad I dealt with porn addiction, since it taught me about sexual conditioning and the nature of addiction and habit-forming.

I like the underlying positivity of what you are seeing here. And I do believe that when the science backing up the idea of porn addiction becomes more and more "mainstream" people's views will change. There is already a lot of movements are starting to question the perception that porn brings to real sex and sexuality, especially when it comes to younger people. More and more young people are getting the sex education from porn. As you can probably guess, this is starting to have noticeable negative effects. Not just with porn addiction, but with how young men are seeing women etc.

Wow!  I never thought this conversation would take off the way it has.  Amazing!  I just wish I could be as optimistic as everyone else.  All I see at work is unmarried people swiping left and right on a stupid smartphone app, with no end in sight.  All I see at home (from abroad on the internet) is sex being pushed into our faces.  I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if statutory rape is dropped from law.  I see the promotion of lowering sex ed via the media, unleashing sex games to kids.  Pretty soon parents will have no means to raise their kids.  Which is basically the plan.  We will be forced to let our kids "be free".  I feel very afraid for the next generation, and for the kids my wife and I want to have.  Pretty soon giving "the talk" to your kids will be hate speech.  But hey, at least our population will likely go up. [Sarcasm].

I'm sorry about getting political, but I feel like you can't avoid it when discussing this topic.  It is completely and unavoidably a political topic.  You either feel that sex is a beautiful, private matter that should be enjoyed by consenting adults (over 18), or you believe that it is something that should be freely enjoyed, uncontrolled, no rules attached.

How do you you run a country without rules?  How do you regulate anything in a world where kids can be sexual?  How do you raise children? 

I feel like we are seeing the giant, ugly grin on the face of the far left, finally, as we lose our ability to protect our children or privately raise them.  It is a sad time to be a parent.

Suffice it to say, I can't help but think that we are going to lose and the porn corporations and businesses, with the help of SJWs will keep porn alive forever.  But at least this site is here to help those who want a way out.  May that always be the case.
