#Mindsoak: Pop Songs, SexEd, and Porn Edition

Once again I had the pleasure of writing for Jon Filitti’s MindSoak blog–this one focuses on female-power pop songs masquerading as revolutionary when they are, in fact, judgy and reductive of the broad spectrum of differences that make up womankind.

I was also lucky to be interviewed for Jon’s regular Psychobabble segment–where he and I nerd-out on the latest Social Science research–and this time we tackle sexual education, pornography and its effects on sexual development, and online safety, with special shout-outs to Peggy Orenstein‘s insightful and informative book, Girls and Sex.  In my humble (developmental psychologist’s) opinion, it’s a must-read for any caregiver, regardless of the age or gender of their child(ren).
