June 2023: Protect Kids from AI-Generated Pornography

Culture Reframed is the premier science-based, global organization working to stop the emotional, behavioral, and sexual harms of pornography to children and youth. Join our online community to receive updates on our work, announcements of upcoming events, and the latest news related to pornography and youth.

At Culture Reframed, we believe young people have the right to be the author of their own sexuality, free from the coercive and manipulative tactics of the porn industry. As we celebrate Pride Month, we recognize that LGBTQIA+ youth are disproportionately vulnerable to sexual exploitation, especially by the porn industry. Many young people, including LGBTQIA+ youth, turn to porn to learn about sex, and the consequences can be dire. What young people need is sex ed that is comprehensive, accurate, and inclusive.

That is why we are so thrilled about the upcoming launch of our new, porn-critical sex education curriculum, designed for educators and professionals who work with youth. This research-based curriculum aims to help kids develop a non-exploitive understanding of sex and relationships. By properly educating young people about sex and relationships using a porn-critical lens, we can counter the emotional, behavioral, and sexual harms of pornography on children and youth.

Learn more about our sex ed curriculum here, and below, explore new resources to help you understand the latest harms perpetuated by the porn industry and steps you can take to keep kids safe.

Fighting Artificial Intelligence with Parental Intelligence

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) technology has brought forth countless innovations and possibilities from medical research to self-driving cars. However, like any tool, AI can be misused, and its darker side poses significant risks to children. In this article, we explore the dangers of two types of AI-generated pornography —  deepfakes and pornography created by AI image generators — and shed light on the critical need for effective parental control solutions to safeguard children.

How to Keep Kids Safe From Harmful Screen Time This Summer

The arrival of summer brings a shift in family schedules. School’s out, which leaves weekdays open for new activities. For parents, keeping kids occupied for weeks on end can be challenging and can lead to fewer restrictions on screen time. While that may be an okay option some of the time, extended use — and engagement with the wrong content — can have negative effects. In this article, we offer a list of suggestions to keep kids safe on screens this summer.

Dr. Gail Dines Featured on Womanhouse Podcast

Dr. Gail Dines joined Lorna Nakell on the “I Am My Passion Project” podcast to discuss pornified culture and the pressures society puts on girls and women. In this illuminating conversation, Dr. Dines and Nakell discuss the public health crisis that is pornography and the dangerous effects it has. “Now is our time to be heard because the porn industry has hijacked the discourse around sexuality, and it’s turned it into a pornographic vehicle,” said Dr. Dines. “What we need to do is reclaim our sexuality away from the porn industry.”
