Pornography is teaching Kiwi kids about sex – and it’s not pretty. We investigate the rise of online porn and the impact it’s having on young people.

A 26-year-old Kiwi songwriter shares how his life has been destroyed by a crippling porn addiction – and experts say he’s not alone. Porn addiction – fuelled by the chemical rush of online porn – is affecting many young men mentally and causing erectile dysfunction. But it’s not just about addicts. What happens if young people use porn as a key source of sex education? And how does it influence their views on sexual activity and consent? We also visit an LA porn set and interview the actors – what they have to say will surprise you.
