Where are our kids getting their sex education? Their smartphones? In this digital age, it’s critical for young people to have trusted adults to help them build resilience and resistance to hypersexualized media and porn.
Culture Reframed is the first organization to address hypersexualized media and pornography as “the public health crisis of the digital age.” Founded by internationally renowned scholar and activist Dr. Gail Dines, Culture Reframed is supported by a multidisciplinary team of experts and scholars who are helping to build the public’s capacity to deal with 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. Our research-driven parent 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, habitual use of porn, negative self-image, sexual dysfunction, depression, sexually transmitted infections, injuries, and other issues.
