Over18: A Documentary on Porn

November 23, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| Free

Over 18 is a clear-eyed examination of modern pornography and its effects on kids, teens, parents, and porn stars. The goal of the project to educate youth on the realities of pornography, help their parents understand the growing epidemic of hardcore porn usage, and propose solutions for preventing exposure and addiction in the first place.

Some quick stats:
-Over 90% of boys and 60% of girls have seen porn before the age of 18
-71% of teens hide their online behaviour from their parents
-Boys see porn for the first time by age 12, on average

The type of porn that exists today isn’t like the Playboy mags of old- it’s violent and degrading on a scale we’ve never seen. 83% of male minors have seen group sex online, and 23% of girls have witnessed sexual bondage.

Parents need to be equipped and aware of this issue in order to protect their children from these images and from addiction. This film is designed to open up the conversation between parents and their children to ensure the health and safety of the family. I know this is a topic people don’t want to talk about and maybe it’s not safe and fun for the whole family. But it is a way to keep families safe in the end. I hope you will consider promoting this event.
