"I was a good girl. I always had been. I had never fooled around with boys, and boyfriends never got below the waist."
7th grade girls are asking questions about bondage and S&M. Many of them have seen "50 Shades of Grey," and wonder if a boy wants to hit me, tie me up and stalk me, does that mean he loves me?
As a 25-year-old college graduate, I have been battling pornography for just about half my life. The fact is, more young men and women than ever are growing up with this same struggle against pornography. I decided to write a letter to myself, a younger version of me, sharing some of the things I wish I had known when I first started looking at pornography and what I’ve learned in the past 10 years.
