Online, Pornography Education

According to recent study by CyberTruth, kids are watching porn as early as the age of 6 because of easier access to the content on the Internet. However, while blocking the content is one method, others argue for more education and awareness about pornographic content.

"The answer to everything that worries people about porn and its impact on life and sex is not to shut down, clamp down or block -- the answer is to open up the dialog," Cindy Gallop, founder of MakeLoveNotPorn, a site that creates porn that it says does not objectify women.

Gallop said parents need to have a different conversation about sex with their children these days.

"The conversation we need to have with children is 'We know you are online and you might see porn sites, but not all women want to be tied up or dress like sluts,'" she said.

Cameron also said he believes in education, but of a different sort.

"That doesn't mean teaching young children about pornography, it means sensible, age-appropriate education about what to expect on the Internet," he said. "We're taking action on how children access this stuff, on how they're educated about it and I can tell you today we are also taking action on the content that is online."
