Storyline

From tiny tots strutting bikini-clad bodies in beauty pageants to companies marketing itty-bitty thongs and padded bras to 9-year-olds, images of ever-younger sexualized girls have become commonplace. Add to that: ever-younger boys with 24-7 access to hard-core Internet porn. It saturates their lives - from skate parks to the school bus - 80 percent of boys 10 to 18 are watching porn on smart phones. Toss social media into the mix: and kids not only can consume X-rated images, but produce them. Sexting has become a grade seven right of passage. The powder keg that is porn culture has exploded in our kid's lives. The often-devastating consequences are explored in the new film Sext Up Kids. Sext Up Kids exposes how growing up in a hyper-sexualized culture hurts our kids. Teens and pre-teens show and tell what they are doing and why they are doing it.

Scary look at Social Media and Teens
6 December 2017 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

12/6/17. If you are wondering what teens are doing today, watch this. Or, maybe not if you don't have a strong stomach. Because of social media, tweens and teens are being exposed to way more sex-based media than they should be, and way before they can handle the material in a rational way. This exposure is causing them to indulge in sex and sexual fantasies way before they are capable of dealing with the emotional fallout, thus the current mental health crisis engulfing young people today. If you have a tween, teen or even younger children you should watch this just so you can develop some parental oversight of what your children are being exposed to through social media. They really do need your love and guidance.
