I recently finished this article in First Things and found it was brilliant and powerful.  It is about the pornography’s proliferation in our culture and how it has became mainstream.  It is everywhere you look, younger generations (including myself) are exposed to it constantly. One of the concluding paragraphs is brilliant on its solution:

For starters, we could use a campaign that might promise to do to pornography what was ultimately done to tobacco—a restigmatization based on the evolving record of fact. What’s needed is nothing less than the kind of leadership that turned smoking, in the course of a single generation, from cool to uncool—one eventually summoning support high and low, ranging from celebrities, high-school teachers and principals, counselors, former users, and anyone else who knows they belong in the coalition of the willing on this wretched issue.

Pornography must be discussed in the open and I highly recommend that you read this article.  It is well worth your time!
