Just wondering - how many hours do you spend consuming porn on the Internet each day?
Not a question you would really want to ask someone, and if you did and they were candid about it, perhaps you would be shocked.
The Actors Hub takes a confronting look at porn and addiction in its latest production at Fringe Perth – “The Innocent Pawn”. Being advertised as part entertainment and part education, I wasn’t sure what I was in for.
The actors kicked off the night’s proceedings with how this all got started, and how we have always had pornography in some shape and form throughout time immemorial - after all the human interest in sex does date back quite a bit!
Although in no phase of history has porn been as pervasive and easily accessible as our current times. There is a whole generation of young adults whose over consumption of technology and constant dopamine hits has reached the stage of de-sensitisation.
