Monique Alexander PSA Asks Parents Not to Let Porn Teach Sex Ed

CYBERSPACE—"Nearly 90 percent of children have seen hardcore porn by age 11," AVN Hall of Famer Monique Alexander says in a new public service announcement spearheading a campaign launched today that encourages parents to get a jump start on educating their kids about sex before porn does it for them in a manner far removed from reality. Called "Give the Talk," the campaign was created by Celine Faledam and Rachel Guest of ad agency Mistress, Adweek reports, who chose today as its start date in order to coincide with International Children's Day. Further along in the PSA, in which male performer Ryan McLane also appears, Alexander advises, "Look, we don't want to be your child's role model. We think you are far more qualified to teach them the facts of life. Yes, it's going to be uncomfortable ... awkward ... but if you don't, we'll be their only lesson." Though the message—that the burden of proper sex education lies squarely on parents—is unassailably valuable, the campaign creators' views of porn may be slightly less than friendly. "We're not here to demonize porn," Guest told Adweek, "but it's clear the content is more accessible and increasingly graphic and even violent, especially toward women." The veracity of that statement aside, there's no arguing with Guest's point that, "It's disturbing when you think about hardcore online porn being a 9-year-old's first exposure to sex. A lot of parents don't realize we need to start the conversation that young." Read more about the "Give the Talk" campaign and see the PSA here.
