Real Relational Leprosy

I just heard a pretty disturbing program on Radio 4 called Online Damage: Porn in the 21st Century.

It's available here (40mins) on the BBC iPlayer for the next 7 days, and will air again on Sunday 18 January at 5pm. It is well worth a listen or setting the timer to record it.

Most are now alert to the dangers of drugs and alcohol, but the relational damage we are exposing ourselves to online through pornography and the darker side of social networking sites is not yet well understood, by academics or by parents (who are mostly on the wrong side of the digital divide).
