Today porn is more widely and freely available via the internet than ever before, and therefore more easily accessed by kids at younger ages than ever before - in a society where we continue to have difficulty speaking honestly, openly and realistically about sex. It was direct personal experience of what this means that led Cindy Gallop to launch her website at TED 2009. She talked in detail about her own observations, the extraordinary response MakeLoveNotPorn has received subsequently all around the world, the less understood and realized impact and implications of porn as default, stand-alone sex education, and why the real issue is not porn.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
