Two Reasons Why Kids Are More Vulnerable to Porn (and What You Can Do About It!)

PornProof Kids™

yellow neural networkA kid’s brain is wired to imitate the adult behavior they see and to accept it as “normal.” Here’s how they come to accept deviant, violent, hard-core porn as normal “sex education.”

According to a talk given by Sharon Cooper, M.D., of The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, a child’s brain is more vulnerable to the harms of viewing porn for two major reasons:

  1. Mirror neurons. A child’s brain has an abundance of mirror neurons. These neurons convince us that when we see something we are actually experiencing it. These neurons help kids imitate the behavior they see in their older siblings and in adults. Unfortunately, mirror neurons make pornography even more real to kids and helps them imitate what they see.
  2. Immature pre-frontal cortex. A child’s brain matures from the back (brainstem) to the front where the pre-frontal cortex resides. This area of the brain controls judgment, impulse…

Can Pornography Shrink the Human Brain?

PornProof Kids™

Can an addiction to pornography or any other sexual practice shrink your brain? It’s starting to look that way.

Scientists already have proof that cocaine, meth and even food addictions (obesity) are associated with brain cell shrinkage in certain areas of the brain. They also have proof that pedophiles and others with sexual addictions exhibit similar shrinkage.

An article in Psychology Today entitled Ominous News for Porn Users: Internet Addiction Atrophies Brain reported on evidence of brain shrinkage in people addicted to playing online video games, and makes a strong case that porn use also atrophies the brain.

All addictions involve similar chemical pathways in the brain.

In fact, less than a year ago, the American Society of Addiction Medicine revised their definition of addiction to include behavioral or natural addictions, such as pornography. They cite evidence that all addictions are basically corruptions of the brain’s reward system.

In essence, much of…

How to Create a Porn Addiction in 7 Easy Steps

PornProof Kids™

Family All Together At Christmas Dinner

Seven Steps to Addiction Start with the Reward System

There are seven steps to creating a porn addiction. And they begin with the brain’s reward system–a part of the “feeling brain” or limbic system that we consult for every decision we make, large or small.

The brain’s reward system is the reason you like to do the things that are crucial for your survival.

  • Eating is important for survival; eating is pleasurable.
  • Sex is important for the survival of humanity; sex is pleasurable.
  • Even the “natural high” you get from exercise is proof that the brain has a powerful way to reward you for doing important activities again and again.

Cravings and Appetites

How? Through cravings and appetites.

For example, the brain creates a strong hunger for food in order to assure that you’ll keep eating. The sex drive is constant and powerful. (If it weren’t, would any couple with two children ever…

Why Porn Escalates from Underwear Ads to Hard Core: What Parents Need to Know

PornProof Kids™

season2_characters_carson“I do not wish to take a tour of your revolting world.” So said the head butler, Carson, in a recent episode of the popular British series, Downton Abbey.

Unfortunately, while I don’t recommend “taking a tour” of pornography, I do believe it’s essential for parents, especially moms, to know what’s out there and how easily an addiction to viewing porn can escalate and intensify.

Recently, I talked with a mom about my upcoming book Good Pictures, Bad Pictures. She wanted to know what pornography actually shows:  photos of naked men and women, or are they actually filmed having sex?

Yes, yes and much, much worse.

Little boy with cell phoneI hate to do this. I know it’s ugly. But parents need to know what their kids can easily view on their cell phones or internet-enabled devices any minute of the day or night. Here’s a brief description of how depraved and…

Smallpox and Inoculation: A Model for Fighting Porn Addiction?

PornProof Kids™

The last known naturally occurring smallpox victim in the world. The last known naturally occurring smallpox victim in the world.

I believe that internet pornography is sickening humankind like the world’s most devastating diseases. So how have we overcome these pandemics in the past?

Through immunization of healthy young people before they got exposed.

That’s why I have such great hope that porn-proofing–educating children about the brain-changing and life-wasting effects of pornography addiction–will be a powerful protector for them.

Smallpox was a highly infectious disease that ravaged the human world for centuries, even millennia, until it was successfully eradicated in 1977. In fact, smallpox killed millions every year and changed the course of history when it took the lives of royals and decimated native populations.

Smallpox eradication began by first using inoculation and then by organizing an aggressive vaccination program.

In fact, smallpox inoculation was practiced by the Chinese as far back as the 10th century…

Rookie at the U.N. Part 1: Trek to the Big Apple

Mama Crossroads

I’m shivering. And I’m late. As usual. This time I can’t even blame my little ones. This time I’m heading to New York City all by myself. I shiver again.

Blasted rain!

I watch the drops bead down the truck window. I swallow hard. Try to breathe. Offer one more silent prayer before I throw it in reverse and spray gravel on the driveway during my big exit.

I arrive at the cramped Amtrak station. The train is late. It’s a tender mercy. I smile in spite of myself. I’m going to make it after all.

The railway ride is long. We are packed in like damp cattle. Some little ones scurry on the floor, spilling snacks and screaming bloody murder. But they’re not mine! I put in my earplugs and work on my laptop.

And then I am there. Standing in Penn station, with my bags and my bright…
