Kids, Sex, and Video Games

Sex education expert Amy Lang talks about how video games can actually help you talk to kids about sex. We believe in that! Amy talks about how she uses video game content like Grand Theft Auto to talk to her 15-year-old son about things like sex work. She’s also learning to play Far Cry 4 (yay, Amy!) and talking to her son about gender roles in that game. For younger kids, you might try broaching the subject of sex using a book Amy recommends “It’s Not the Stork.”

When it comes to online friendships, Amy recommends talking to kids about their online friends. If you’re open and calm about online interactions, kids will be more likely to tell you if there is something uncomfortable going on.

Look for Amy at her website or on Facebook.

About Linda Breneman

Linda learned to play video games as a way to connect with her teenaged kids, and then she learned to love video games for their own sake. At Pixelkin she wrangles the business & management side of things, writes posts as often as she can, reaches out on the social media, and does the occasional panel or talk. She lives in Seattle, where she writes, studies, plays video games, spends time with her family, consumes vast quantities of science fiction, and looks after her small cockapoo. She loves to hear from people out there. You can read more about her at her website, Linda or her family foundation's website,
