This week we are tackling a very taboo topic. Licensed clinical social worker Mark MacDonald and I sit down to talk about pornography. Mark began his private practice about 20 years ago just as high speed internet was coming into homes and he saw his business immediately boom as people struggled to get out from under pornography addiction. Mark and I discuss the science behind porn use, common myths about pornography and some ways to protect your kids from inadvertently accessing it.
