Anyway, I do want to talk about the following articles:
but for now maybe I can just offer, in brief, the following bullet points:
- the ease of accessing an enormous variety of porn via the internet dramatically changes the path of adolescent sexual education and awareness
- the evolution of young people's behaviors regarding sex, in response to the porn-enhanced education, has a lot of obvious disturbing implications, as well as a few potentially positive ones
- the suggestion that a porn/masturbation combo is progressively displacing "real world" sexual relationships is probably overstated as a trend, but could also be seen as an obvious parallel development to the socially isolating/atomizing environment sponsored by Twitter/Facebook/IM/SMS*
*My thoughts on "social" networking webservices and communications (Twitter, etc) are complicated and unpopular in my own social circles right now. Maybe I'll write about it in depth soon
Also, I know I use too many colons and semi-colons in my writing; I can't help it and I'm not sure I want to stop anyway.
