SIX YEAR-OLD PORN ADDICT

A far-fetched scenario featured on the Sydney Morning Herald homepage:

Liz Walker was only six years old when an older girl from up the street squashed in next to her on the school bus and excitedly whispered “Hey do you want to see something?” It was a Playboy she found under her brother’s bed and full of graphic pornography.

“I felt this sense of disgust, but also arousal,” Ms Walker remembers. “I was catapulted into an awareness of my sexuality I wasn’t ready for. In my six-year-old brain I though that’s what you had to do to get noticed.”

She started looking at porn every afternoon after school, and trying out the scenarios she saw on other children. Her early sexualisation saw her lose her virginity at 12 and have multiple sexual partners during her teens.

“I was seeking out those sexual interactions wherever I could because I had been conditioned to think that’s what women did,” Ms Walker recalls. “I had a reputation as a slut from a very young age.”

She ended up binge drinking and taking drugs to cover up her “emotional deficit”, and spent her late teens and early 20s in and out of psychiatric wards.

And she attributes it to that fateful morning on the school bus. “It was all because of seeing that porn once. Before that I’d had no sexual awareness, I had a healthy home environment, there were no other contributing factors.”

A life nearly destroyed by one look at a Playboy. Really. Now just imagine the mind-warping effect of readily available online pornography. Perhaps all parents should buy Walker’s books.
