Think about it: When was the first time you were exposed to sex? Chances are, it probably involved a half naked pizza delivery man and a scantily clad woman who just happened to invite him inside.

(Or, you know, something else that was just as strange.) With everything being just a Google search away, porn is more accessible than ever—meaning “the talk” has no doubt evolved over time.

And as cringe worthy as it is for both parents and their kids, the “birds and the bees” discussions of the digital age aren’t anything like Jim’s dad pulling out a copy of Hustler to make note of things like the female form and foreplay in American Pie.

That’s why "Give The Talk", a new campaign launched by sexual health education site AMAZE, is having porn stars give parents “the talk,” which encourages them to be open and honest with their kids about porn.

Why does it matter? Porn isn’t exactly realistic and can even promote unsafe sex practices.

When you’re young and uneducated about sex, this may effect your sexual health and relationships.

In the first video of the campaign, adult film actress Monique Alexander states: “Nearly 90 percent of children have seen hardcore porn by age 11. Even more troubling? No one’s explaining to them that porn is a fantasy, like an action movie or video game.”

She makes it quite clear that it’s not about if your kids are watching porn, but talking to them about sex before they’re exposed to it.

“Look, we don’t want to be your child’s role model. We think you are far more qualified to teach them the facts of life,” she says.

Young children and adolescents aren’t the only ones affected by what they see online.

While porn can actually expand your bedroom repertoire, continuously fixating on what happens in X-rated flicks can also limit how you experience sex.

It’s all about spotting the difference.
