Sexual exploitation is a global plague fueled by pornography. Thankfully, we now have decades of prevention science and new research into why kids “hire” porn. Protect Young Minds is utilizing this knowledge to develop a wide range of prevention resources and strategies. After all, an ounce of porn prevention is well worth a pound of cure for addiction and exploitation.
