The Pornification Continues

Just a quick hit on the continuing pornification of our culture.

Consider this from Dr. Keith Ablow:

Ashley Benson, 23, knows what sells to America’s 12-year-old girls: sex, including threesomes. Together with Seventeen magazine, the actress is promoting her new movie “Spring Breakers” on the magazine’s cover, despite the fact that the movie is being hyped elsewhere for its steamy sex scene between Benson, actress Vanessa Hudgens, 24, and actor James Franco. The movie is rated R for strong sexual content, language, nudity, drug use and violence.  Seventeen targets an audience of females, aged 12 to 19.

The full article is here.

As a side note, i have to wonder: what’s the deal with James Franco? He’s definitely fascinated with sex and porn based on his other work, including a film about, a specific type of porn site.

Ablow later explains sexual acting out, including risky behavior, as a way we try to feel alive in the midst of a culture where actual, meaningful contact is declining.

i concur.  So many men i speak with — and my own story reflects this — run to porn to feel alive, powerful and satisfied. It never works, just ask John Mayer.

    Reblogged this on Escape From Porn and commented:
    This really hits home. Not only are they advertising this movie to young girls, but they will mainstream this filth to guys already struggling with addictive behaviors. In the addicts mind, “younger is better”. This will no doubt satisfy a new generation of up and coming addicts.

    Seventeen magazine and Ashley Benson should be ashamed of themselves…leave our kids alone to be kids…aim this at 18 plus not from age 12, that is just so wrong on so many levels. Thanks for bringing this to our attention international warriors.
