Let’s unpack this in a little more detail. For most of Western history, sex was not viewed as a recreational activity.

Revenge porn has skyrocketed during the pandemic, with a recent survey showing one in three people had experienced at least one form of image-based abuse.
Hardcore pornography is one-click away, video games are designed to be addictive, and boys and young men themselves are increasingly asking for help because they don’t know how to regulate their own use of these and related technologies.
However, even if they recognise their own struggle, because of the new difficulties facing young men in this changing, uncertain world, many are choosing to isolate themselves in a place where they have control over outcomes — where there is no fear of rejection and they are praised for their abilities.
“We’re not asking to do something that we don’t already have on our devices,” she said. “We’re just asking to have those filters turned on, to just make it a little bit easier for parents and safer for our kids.”Read More
