Many parents fear the day they would need to have "The Talk" with their kids about sex and other taboo topics. It's something some understand needs to be done while many others just let the kids learn for themselves. But there are those who not just talk about it but would also go a step further. Wahyu Setyaning Budi more famous as Yuni Shara is a famous popstar in Indonesia and also a mother of two teenage kids. She recently said in an interview she watches porn with them to educate them. In an interview with CNN Indonesia, she said her two boys think their mom was taking things too far. Shara said she asked them, "What do you guys think about watching together like this, is it cool?" They reply, "Mom, don't be like this." In another interview she said, it was "impossible" for kids to not watch porn these days.



 

 

Even if one catches them watching it she said it is best not to reprimand them. The 49-year-old said,  "My children also happen to be open-minded. "It's impossible for our children nowadays to not watch porn, whether it's 'anime' or any other kind that are available nowadays." And what do the experts think about Yuni's style of parenting? Agstried Piether a Youth Education Psychologist at Rumah Dandelion told Indonesian news outlet Antara News that Yuni was doing the right thing. Piether said, "That's right when you catch a child watching porn, no matter how panicked you are, you should not be angry because in the end, the child will only do it again in secret. Instead, ask the child what prompted him to watch porn? Curious? Through the discussion, parents can provide factual sex education, based on science, not based on pornographic films."

 



 

 

Ali Wentworth, actress and wife of television host, George Stephanopoulos recently said she was ready to "look at porn" with her two teenage daughters so as to teach them about sex and demystify the topic for her kids. She said that pornography was something that was more "performative" rather than realistic. "In porn, women have been conditioned to look and act a certain way. They are performing and it's dangerous to have boys see this as something women want," she told Bang Showbiz NZ report. The actress also has two teenage children. She added, "You can't stop them, so I would watch it with them. I would look at the porn with them that one time, like, 'They're performing'," while adding that she gives her daughters some perspective by looking at social media posts of them together.



 

 

Referring to talks with her daughter on the subject of sex, Ali spoke during an episode of 'Dissenters' podcast,where she said, "I say, 'Do you see this girl? There is a hole she is trying to fill.' ... I (also) use humor to try to converse with them and say things like, 'Did you drop out of school today. Did you get married today?" Wentworth has been very open open about her own sex life, something she has talked about in her 2018 memoir. She married Stephanopoulos in 2001 and recently highlighted they regularly have sex even at this age.
