It is a situation on the brink of becoming extremely dangerous, a culture that has exploded in the lives of our children, the online explicit film industry. This documentary takes a look at the devastating consequences of a hyper-sexualized world we have created.
From tiny tots strutting bikini-clad bodies in beauty pageants to companies marketing itty-bitty thongs and padded bras, images of ever-younger girls have become commonplace. To make the situation worse, teenage boys are gaining 24/7 access to these explicit videos online. To a point where it is saturating their lives – from the school bus to the local skate park – by the time they’re eighteen, most teenage boys will be watching these videos online. Throw social networks in to the mix and not only can these consume explicit images, but they can now produce them.
The film reveals how today’s hypersexualized culture is a having a detrimental effect on our kids. Teens featured throughout the documentary talk about what they are doing and why they are behaving the way they do.
