Presenter: Mary Anne Layden PhD We know that with the advent of the Internet, pornography is now pervasive and easily available. But do we know its impact? Research indicates that it affects the attitudes and behaviors of men, women, and children in a scope of outcomes from sexual callousness to child molestation. These outcomes can devastate individuals and relationships, damaging marriages and families and ultimately society. Understanding of these outcomes is the first step to setting us all free from these catastrophic consequences.

  • 153. Father’s Advice Don't Follow Your Peers If your friends try to talk you into coming along with them to a strip club, please say NO. These places only serve to objectify women. The men who frequent those places consider women as property and not individuals with needs and feelings. Also, it may seem funny when your friends talk about "banging" women as if they're a piece of meat, but I assure you it's anything but funny. Capturing a woman's heart is a valuable and appreciated skill; treating her like a "conquest" is an immature fantasy.
  • 154. Father’s Advice Beware Of What You Allow Into Your Eyes And Mind Men are visual creatures, and nothing arouses men more than pornography. Some might say it's harmless, but the truth is, the more you watch or read porn, the more you'll be desensitized to the actual physical experience of making love. It will blind you to the real wonders of a woman's body. Nothing on this earth is more amazing then the real touch of a woman who loves you and wants you.
  • 155. Father’s Advice Don't Accept A Cheap Thrill One-night-stands may seem exciting in the moment, but you're usually left with a ton of regret in the morning. You'll be tempted to sleep with as many women as you can because you'll want to "prove" something about yourself. There's nothing to prove. Although your friends and the media will disagree with me, it's more of an achievement to sleep with one woman a thousand ways than to sleep with a thousand women
  • 156. Father’s Advice Make Love, Not Sex Nothing really compares to the mind-blowing experience of making love with the one special woman you deeply care about. When you are fully present physically and emotionally, that's making love. Sex is just a physical experience. Having sex may feel good, but making love is heaven on earth. Take time to nurture a relationship. Be friends first and foremost. It will be so worth it.
