Generation Porn: How technology is taking our children’s innocence

Video games and the internet have given a new generation unprecedented access to the most extreme pornography.

Statistics say that your teenager probably watches it.

This weekend the Sunday Independent talks to Generation Porn and finds out what happens when the links between sex and intimacy are severed?  And how long before we begin to feel the effects of this emotional timebomb?

Psychotherapist Joanna Fortune explains that the march of the internet and smart phones has created a new world where young people never have to take responsibility for the consequences of their comments.

Emily Hourican asks Mothers what can be done to protect children from the worst of the explicit material on the internet, while Joyce Fegan speaks to teenagers and finds out that schoolboys are frank about their weekly porn use while girls are having sex from a younger age.
