Download "Generation Porno" Gelehrte Gewalt in unserer Sexualität: by Lisa Breunig PDF

By Lisa Breunig

Im Netz existieren heut zu Tage unzählige „Hardcore Pornos“, bei denen der Verbraucher zwischen
verschiedensten Arten von Fetischen, wie zum Beispiel intercourse zwischen Menschen mit Behinderungen und
Verstümmelungen, Sadomasochismus, intercourse mit alten Menschen, intercourse mit Farbigen, „Gangbangs“ und video clips
von intercourse mit Tieren, der sogenannten „Sodomie“, wählen kann. Abgesehen davon kursieren auch
weitaus „harmlosere“ Erotik- movies im web. Doch auch innerhalb der Mainstream-Pornografie
zielt die artwork der Darstellung hauptsächlich auf männliche Vorlieben, welche von vielen als respektlos
Frauen gegenüber empfunden werden. Ihre Rolle in Pornografie wird oft als erniedrigend, objektifizierend,
sexistisch und frauenverachtend interpretiert.

Eine rege Debatte innerhalb der Medien um die Medienwirkung und die Einstellung diesem Medienbereich gegenüber,
sowie um die Werthaltung der Jugendlichen im Allgemeinen, ist die Folge.
So wurde die heutige Jugend innerhalb der letzten Jahre mehrfach als „Generation Porno“ oder als
„verwahrloste new release“ betitelt. Außerdem wurde vermutet, dass die Jugendlichen, die in einer
Welt der sexuellen Reizüberflutung leben, die Realität nicht mehr von dem im Porno abgebildeten
unterscheiden können. Um nur einige Beispiele zu nennen, waren die folgenden Veröffentlichungen
von besonderer Bedeutung für den beschriebenen Themenkomplex: der Artikel „Voll Porno“ im „Stern“, d
ie Dokumentation: “Letzter Halt Sex-Kids am Abgrund” von Manfred Bölk, die im ARD übertragen wurde,
die Dokumentation „Generation Porno“ in der ZDF-Reihe „37°“ sowie das Buch „Deutschlands sexuelle Tragödie -
Wenn Kinder nicht mehr lernen, used to be Liebe ist“ von Bernd Siggelkow. Im Interview mit dem Stern schätzt Siggelkow,
welcher Gründer des Kinder- und Jugendwerks „Arche“ in Berlin ist, dass etwa five – 10 % aller Jugendlichen sexuell
völlig desorientiert sind und äußert:
„Sie beziehen einen wesentlichen Teil ihrer Bildung aus der Bildzeitung, von Porno-Rappern und aus Sexfilmen.“
(Stern, 17.09.2008)

Neben der Ansicht Siggelkows existieren jedoch auch davon abweichende Aussagen von Pädagogen und Wissenschaftlern,
die sich mit dem Thema befasst haben.
