The website PornHub has created an online wellness center offering sexual education videos to viewers, which is raising a few eyebrows.

“It doesn’t seem like a good idea to me,” ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says. “Learning whether [something] is good or bad is a click away, but a pornography website?”

Watch: Porn for Kids?!

Psychiatrist Dr. Domenick Sportelli worries about the studies that have found that kids who consume pornography are more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior that is riskier, along with how porn can contribute to a poor self-image.

“It creates false expectations for these kids,” he worries, but also admits that regardless of what parents do kids will find a way to access pornography if they want to.

Dr. Sportelli encourages parents to try and take the shame out of kids being curious about porn and keep an open dialogue about sex and any questions they might have.
