Pubescent Girls Learning About Sex by Downloading Porn

Leslie Carol Botha: Girls getting messages from anywhere that ‘sex is power’ is morally wrong.¬† We need to be teaching our hormonal honeys that they have more value than what lies between their legs.¬† However, it appears that the porn industry is getting to them first. No wonder we are putting girls on synthetic hormone contraception at a young age. But remember, these girls are too young to advocate for condom use to protect them from STD’s – which is why Pharma is waltzing in STD vaccines.

Porn Before Puberty? Film Explores Childhood, Parenting in Sex-Saturated Culture

ABC Nightline

“Is this slutty?” Danielle, having just put on a skirt, asked her friend Winnifred. Lady Gaga’s “Monster” played in the background. “Just dance but he took me home instead,/ Oh oh there was a monster in my bed,” the girls sang along.

“That’s a good length,” Winnifred answered. “It’s short, but in a cool way, not, like, a slutty way.”

Full story on “Nightline” aired on October 25, at 11:35 p.m. ET

Winnifred and Danielle are modern-day 12-year-olds. But they’re not playing dress-up — they’re getting ready for a Lady Gaga concert.

Winnifred carefully curates her online profile, pushing her budding sexuality to jack up her Facebook “likes.”

The documentary “Sexy Baby,” which was featured at the Tribeca Film Festival, follows Winnifred’s adolescence from age 12 to age 15, and delves into the world of porn before puberty. Winnifred’s journey in the documentary reflects that of many pre-teens today, and through her eyes parents worldwide get a glimpse into the hyper-sexualized culture their children are facing today.

“I know I look like I’m down to f—,” Winnifred says in the film.

The film explores how much social media adds fuel to the hormonal fire. Winnifred posted a revealing picture of herself with her bra showing. Why?

“It’s awkward, and we’re getting messages from everywhere that are saying, ‘If you dress this way, you are going to be either treated well or you’re gonna feel powerful,'” Winnifred told ABC News’ Juju Chang.

Sex is power, and that’s how a lot of girls and boys seem to feel these days.

Winnifred’s mother, Jenny Bonjean, is a feminist who says she’s trying to raise an uninhibited, empowered girl.

“My message to my daughter is, sexuality is a wonderful, beautiful thing. You should embrace it. … It’s not the only type of power you’re gonna have. Unfortunately, it is in the culture the first power that they feel … where 13-year-old girls can have influences on grown men,” Bonjean-Alpart said.
