Porn as sex education porn effects on sexuality of teens newsweek Brian Shumway.jpg

Newsweek recently ran a story about the effect of porn on teen sexuality. The alarmingly titled article is PORN AS SEX ED: ONLINE SMUT WARPING TEENS’ VIEWS ON SEXUALITY. Newsweek used an outtake photograph from my Happy Valley series of a teen girl lying on a bed with clothes and whatnot piled on top of her. I’m a bit confused as to how the photograph relates to either porn or teen sexuality. It’s interesting, though, to see where my work is actually published and in what context it’s used.
