Teach Schoolkids about Porn, Says Labour MP

Children as young as five should be taught about pornography, a report has said.

Classes on relationships, online conduct and the dangers sexual abuse should be “compulsory” for those aged five to seven to help combat grooming, it adds.

Launching to ‘Dare2Care’ report, Sarah Champion, Labour’s Shadow Women and Equalities Minister, said children are “regarding porn as a lesson in how to have sex”.

“It is natural for children to be curious about sex, but without good statutory education, children do their own research through online pornography,” she said.

“Children are regarding porn as a lesson in how to have sex, without the context or the understanding to view it as a fantasy, promoted by an industry that normalises violence against women and girls.”

The report calls for schools to teach “resilience and relationships education” during the earliest years of primary schooling.

However, Sun doctor Carol Cooper slammed the proposal, saying: “Pornography is classified as unsuitable for children for a reason.

“It’s exposing them to overly sexual messages — and often very violent messages — and deviant sex.

“Children don’t need to know about sex, they need to know about relationships.”

The report comes just weeks after a BBC presenter called for schoolchildren to be shown porn so they can analyse it like a Jane Austen novel.

Jenni Murray, who present’s BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour, told the Cheltenham Literary Festival: “We give our kids Jane Austen to read and we say, ‘OK let’s analyse it’.

“We might show them a news bulletin that has been on television the night before. Why not show them pornography and teach them how to analyse it?

“You put boys and girls together in a class and you show them a pornographic film and you analyse it in exactly the same way as you teach them to read all the other cultures around them.”
