A Planned Parenthood website for teenagers is promoting pornography to young people, Cybercast News Service reports.
A 2007 article on the Planned Parenthood-sponsored Teenwire.com website advises pornography use as a “lower-risk form of outercourse.” "Many couples can read or watch sexy stories or pictures together," the article states. "They can also share or act out sex fantasies.”
Another advice piece, “Porn vs. Reality,” warns that it is against federal law for anyone under 18 to view pornography. The article then says “however, not everyone follows the rules, and you may run across some porn before you turn 18.” The article says that many people enjoy pornography “alone or with a partner.” It continues, “People have different ideas of what is arousing, and there are many different kinds of porn that appeal to people's different interests."
On the website’s “Ask the Experts” page, one writer assures a student concerned pornography use will affect his grades that “there is no correlation between using pornography and getting bad grades in school.” The writer assured another teenager that masturbation and pornography use did not constitute cheating on his girlfriend.
