So Enda Kenny wants to talk about porn. In a strongly-worded speech this week he said it is "clearly an issue that needs to be addressed" as part of "a better and caring Ireland".
I wonder if I am the only one who saw the irony in the Taoiseach's urgency and concern - given the speech came days after the Government's decision to boot a referendum on the Eighth Amendment down the road for another two years.
But that's a matter of urgency and concern for another day and another government.
In the meantime, back to the pressing issue of porn.
Enda fears that it is "ubiquitous as it is damaging".
I was 10 the first time I saw explicit sex.
A friend and I came across a VHS tape of the movie Basic Instinct and watched it on replay, enthralled. But rather than come away scarred - or "corrupted and tainted" as Enda fears - what I distinctly remember even as a child was being mesmerised by the power wielded by lead actress Sharon Stone. There was nothing negative in the experience.
Two years earlier my mother had bought me a cartoon book Who Made Me? It illustrated two people fitting together like a jigsaw puzzle. It introduced me to my first experience of sex as being all part of a healthy and loving relationship. I also felt I could openly ask my mom questions if I needed. Nothing was ever embarrassing or taboo.
The point of these two tales is that - in modern times - images of explicit sex have and will always be around.
Short of locking children indoors, they will stumble across it somewhere. In a friend's house, the school yard, on iPhones or computers, at some stage, children are going to see porn.
That's why early education matters. In the same way as most teenagers will be offered cigarettes behind the bike shed or a naggin of vodka at an under-age party or drugs at a summer concert - the earlier you get in with the facts, the better chance they have of making healthy decisions.
This is where you come in, Enda. Because instead of trying to demonise porn and block sites, it is imperative to look at the sex education in our schools. A recent Irish study has found eight out of 10 people feel the sex education they received wasn't adequate.
What's even more troublesome is that a separate study from the University of Bristol found that sex education can be negative and out of touch, with various schools even struggling to accept that some students are sexually active.
In other words, sex education alone isn't enough. We need to ensure the talks in our classrooms portray it in a way that is positive, empowering and devoid of shame.
And once those teens mature into adulthood, it is worth noting most porn is perfectly natural (cavemen drew porn on walls), it isn't shameful, shouldn't be feared and using it certainly isn't unusual.
Last year 96pc of Irish men admitted to watching porn and, if Enda is in the minority, he is missing out.
For starters, porn can raise sexual libido - last year, scientists at the University of California found that watching it increases sexual desire.
It can also be pretty useful during times you have urges and no partner to fulfil them. It might even help you get some pleasure without making a bad sexual decision that you'll only wake to regret in the morning.
Another positive is its ability to open up conversation (when else would you get a chance to ask: 'Hey what are you into?'), while aiding sexual fantasies - which help us to understand our relationships, our partners and ourselves better.
Porn also lets you shake off society's often inherited shame around sex - particularly useful in Ireland given our legacy of Catholic guilt and sexual oppression.
As one girl recently said to me, porn would rarely play while she and her boyfriend have sex but when it has: "It just helped me to let go. I didn't have to be the nice, coy girl any more - modest about my sexuality. Here was another girl in the background on the big screen with no inhibitions and I was completely able to let go too."
Feeling inadequate at the sight of the porn star's pert bum didn't come in to it, she told me, because she was confident enough in herself.
Studies also show married men who watch porn are less likely to cheat.
Data by illicitencounters.com on their users found 72pc of men said they watched porn regularly (one to three times a week) prior to engaging in an affair, compared to just 34pc since starting to cheat.
Think about that next time you come across your partner's internet history.
But perhaps porn is at its most liberating when you consider how it cuts through the concept that one size fits all.
Instead a diverse range of bodies of different sizes, shapes, colours, ages and genders are seen as sexy - just look at the top search terms.
Watching porn doesn't mean you can't have good soulful intimate sex with your partner - it just means you can have other fun experiences too - as long as you always make sure they're the star of the show.
