The powder keg that is adult movie culture has exploded in the lives of our children. The often-devastating consequences are explored in the documentary film Sext up Kids.
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.
While, young boys are being saturated with access to 24/7 hard-core adult material online. From skate parks to the school bus, by the time they’re eighteen, 80% of boys are viewing adult movies online. Toss social media into the mix and kids can not only consume X-rated images, but can also now produce them. Sexting has become a Grade 7 right of passage.
In Sext Up Kids, teens and pre-teens show and tell what they are doing and why they are doing it. Experts reveal startling new research, tracking how the pressure to be sexy is changing teen and sexual behaviour in alarming ways, as “anal becomes the new oral.”
Parents and educators struggle to help kids navigate puberty in a world where the line between pop culture and porn culture is increasingly blurred. For every parent who thinks, “that’s not my son or daughter,” this documentary film is your wake up call.
