“Children watch porn when they haven’t even had their first kiss, which will affect their future relationships”

According to recent studies, the contact of minors with pornography begins at the age of 9, “when at 10, 11, 12 …, a child has not normally even given his first kiss,” he says. Juan González-Anleo, one of the authors of the report “Young Spaniards 2021. Being young in times of pandemic”, from the SM Foundation, and a doctorate in Political Science and Sociology from the Pontifical University of Salamanca.

He explains that one of the reasons is that a third of children have a mobile phone at age 10 and at 12, 79%. “There is a lot of talk about parental control; However, 5 months ago a wonderful system was launched to control that minors under 18 years of age did not enter this type of content. An experiment was done to see how long it took a child under 15 to deactivate it. Exactly 2 minutes! They are the digital natives and the ones who know how to do things. Adults, in many respects we are behind, “he assures.

It is true that they have a mobile phone at younger ages, but how do they get to porn at these ages when they don’t even know what it is?

They hear their classmates talking and are curious. The porn comes through the screen with suggestive images that incite them to click. The contradictory thing is that they visualize it before giving their first kiss, of knowing what sexual relations are and the most aberration is that the contents they see are not only about a relationship between a man or a woman. They are watching bukake (group sex, where a series of men take turns ejaculating on a person, either male or female); gang bang (a type of orgy in which someone has sex with three or more people of the opposite or same sex); zoophilia (sexual relations of a person with animals), among other practices. What’s more, there is a web page that offers visualizations of sex by categories: with aliens, monsters and vampires …, but also with wheelchairs, pain, screaming, mutilations, kidnappings, rapes, torture, necrophilia, strangulation …

What impact does seeing these images have on minors?

It is necessary to consider which are the learning models because children observe and everything that is successful, they repeat over and over again until it is recorded in their mind. The young person normalizes these contents and practices that he considers “normal” because he has no other reference. When the time comes, he demands it from his partner, and there come more problems.

Why? How does it influence your first sexual relationship?

Because they not only want to have a relationship with their partner, they demand a series of very diverse acts, among which violence and humiliation stand out. These pornographic videos promote the objectification of women, who are used. Not even your pleasure is important. The problem is that there is no adequate sexual education in parallel. UNESCO speaks of a broad spectrum sexual education, to which it is added that neither in schools nor in homes is this education received.

Is it still a taboo subject today?

Yes, it is still taboo. Little is said, sometimes children can comment on something with older siblings, but it is still taboo.

What should parents do if they see their child viewing pornographic images?

Talk with them. Banning them from seeing it is impossible, especially at that age. If it is prohibited, they will be more interested in seeing it because that is how children and young people work. It is essential to take the bull by the horns and talk, not only about putting on or not wearing a condom, but also about giving him a broad spectrum education, as requested by UNESCO.

And how does the bull grab by the horns?

With sex education, first at home, and then at school. In addition, I believe that censorship is necessary because necrophilia, strangulation, torture, mutilation … That should not be seen by anyone, least of all children. In France, several pages on the Internet have already been closed, but from the State. In Spain it should also be regulated by communities or by the State. There must be a political and social consensus. Later we are surprised when cases like that of the herd happen. We put our hands to our heads, but what has happened is that young people repeat actions that they see on the internet and they cheer each other on as a group. They imitate behaviors and if from the age of 9 they see these contents they normalize them, they get used to them.

More and more young people are also encouraged to show their body and seduce on social networks. Why?

There is more and more entertainment society. One becomes an information product and on the pornographic pages content produced by the consumers themselves are broadcast and, even, they see that their own videos have many visits. So they are encouraged to post more videos. There are web pages that go a step further, they post material and the public offers money to buy more clothes. It is little money, but many people giving little money is quite a lot in the end. This is linked to the precariousness of young people, because many can get an extra 600 euros per month. As long as the bull is not caught by the horns, the situation is going to overwhelm in a very short time.
