Porn Should Not be a Teacher

How old were you when you first saw porn? I am sure that all of you have watched a porn at least once. Many people start watching it because they are curious. Then, wouldn’t it be possible to solve the curiosity by a better means? How about portrayal of sex in the drama? Prime time is 8-10 p.m. when all the family members watch TV together. What would happen if there is a sex scene on the prime-time drama? Most countries specify R-rated media, and have it broadcast after midnight.

Sexual portrayal include R-rated film considered harmful to children and teens. But they can access to those film after a certain age which means they’ll have access someday. Age is just a number. Because humans are different from machines, not everyone changes at the same time. Children are curious and interested in sexual things, but most adults are reluctant to explain to them. But if those things are approached naturally through television, it can be a means of breaking down the barrier.

If television deals with sexual things, teens don’t have to find other means to solve their curiosity. These days number of porn is increasing, and it is harmful and unethical. But if television portray the sex scene, the rate of people watching porn will be lower. Also, young children and teens won’t be start watching at their young age. Moreover, by watching TV with their family members they will be able to talk and share the ideas of those sexual scenes. And this would make them to realize sexuality is not something ashamed of.

Portrayal of sex could also lower the sex crime rate. Early education is important. As children are exposed to sexual thing at early age, they are given the opportunity to have right sexual stereotype. And in a lot of sexual depictions, children should be able to judge what is right or wrong. To distinguish between ideals and reality is the important thing for the young, so they could be able to make the right choice when they grew up.

The last reason television can be a medium for learning about sex. Children and teens are reluctant to ask directly to elders. By watching it through television, there will be conversation naturally. Also, teens are able to have information through television. There are many teens who are pregnant due to lack of basic information on contraception and they feel ashamed visiting the hospital for sexual reasons. This is because they do not have the right knowledge. If television treats this, they will have an indirect experience and will be able to respond wisely when they are faced with such a situation.

Many people who disagree with portrayal of sex on television claim that for some contents, they couldn’t even able to describe during the family hour. I think the reason for this that contents are containing cruel, dirty, and immoral thing, but children and teens should know which is wrong and which is not. They need to set a standard for judging right and wrong.

 

The biggest problem is that the older generation is speaking ill of sexual problems and cutting it off. They avoid talking with the young about this. It does not suddenly become harmless when children reach a certain age. They need to be educated, and they need a change of perception. There is no media as good as TV.

If influential media such as television cut off sexual depictions, children will continue to be ignorant. In the information age, it is not difficult for them to approach pornography. If porn becomes an educational tool that teaches sex to children, it will eventually lead to problems such as sex crimes.
