Eye opening & crucial film for young adults & parents alike

This documentary follows British and American college students on spring break. The media and pop culture’s influence on young people and their mindsets and sexual behavior is revealed through deeply insightful and at times uncomfortable footage. The messages society tells young men and women about their sexuality have a profound impact on their sense of identity and the dark path this cultural narrative can lead to, as revealed through this documentary. What does it mean to be a young man, a young woman, a human being in today’s world? What leads to rape culture? A unique film with footage that helps the viewer ask crucial questions and consider the culture which leads to casual sex and male entitlement to women’s bodies. I would recommend older teens and above watch this, and every parent with kids in college or soon to leave for college. It may lead to much needed conversations. It doesn’t help our young people to not have these important honest conversations and be aware of the issues and pressures they are facing in today’s world.

A Culture Pornified

I'm not gonna write down a speech but I think its the bitter reality of today's pop culture. Highly recommended for anyone and everyone with a desire to understand the meaning of LOVE.
