SOLVING THE PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS OF THE DIGITAL AGE

Founded by internationally renowned scholar and activist Dr. Gail Dines, Culture Reframed is the first organization to recognize and address hypersexualized media pornography as “the public health crisis of the digital age.” We are a multidisciplinary team of experts and scholars helping to build the public’s capacity to deal with pervasive mainstream hardcore online pornography. Culture Reframed is a tax-exempt, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Culture Reframed responds to the pornography crisis by providing education and support to promote healthy child and youth development, relationships, and sexuality. Our research-driven programs teach parents and those in the helping professions how to recognize and respond to the role pornography can play in sexual violence, unhealthy relationships, internet and sex addictions, negative self-image, sexual dysfunction, depression, sexually transmitted infections, injuries, and other issues. We aim to empower participants to create positive and lasting change in families and communities harmed by the hypersexualized media and mainstream hardcore online porn that marks the digital age.
