Porn and teens : A documentary

http://www.theguardian.com/film/2013/sep/08/beeban-kidron-inreallife-interview-teenagers

Ryan proved articulate and unembarrassable enough to give Kidron, and her camera, a guided tour of his world. It was a place dominated by his anytime free access to hardcore pornography, via one screen or another, a place he and his friends appeared to know just as intimately as their own neighbourhood. What Ryan knew of relationships, and of women, he had mostly learned from his daily immersion in adult videos, picked from a menu to suit all conceivable tastes, none of which any longer held much curiosity for him. He acknowledged a sadness in himself about all this, but he was addicted all the same; it appeared abnormal not to want to watch. When Kidron followed Ryan back out on to the street, and on to the tube, he appeared to carry everything he had seen with him. “I’ve ruined the sense of love,” he tells Kidron at one point. He approaches potential girlfriends in the same manner he surfs his favourite websites, always restless, always looking for the excitement of the perfect transaction, always vaguely disappointed.
