Pornland: How the Porn Industry Has Hijacked our Sexuality

The average age of first viewing porn is now 11.5 years for boys, and with the advent of the Internet, it's no surprise that young people are consuming more porn than ever. And today's porn is strikingly different from yesterday's Playboy. As porn culture has become absorbed into pop culture, a new wave of entrepreneurs are creating porn that is even more hard-core, violent, sexist, and racist. Proving that porn desensitizes and actually limits our sexual freedom, "Pornland" argues its omnipresence is a public health concern we can no longer ignore. (2015, 35 min)
