WATCH: Teacher claims 'Porn can be good for kids'

"It's about being more aware of the beautiful ways that porn was invented to be this fantastical, wildly unrealistic tool we can use to explore our emotions and our bodies in ways that aren't represented in mainstream media."

Justine Ang Fonte, a consultant who runs a "pornography literacy" program for adolescents, was recently on a panel discussing her work and said "porn can be good," and compared it any other artistic medium.

"I believe my co-panelists will agree with me based on what we do and how we do it around porn literacy, that porn can be good," Fonte said.



Twitter user Inside the Classroom shared the video and wrote, "Justine Ang Fonte, a sex education teacher states: 'Porn can be good if sex ed is good.'"

Fonte suggested that because it's impossible to eliminate "everyone's router," it's best to think of porn like R-rated films, and that the issue of judging porn is one of "artistic liberties."

"But there's also artistic liberties. So we want people in the creative world and specifically in the entertainment industry that is pornography, to have the ability to exercise," she said of those liberties.

"It's on us to create commentary and discourse around it," Fonte added.

Fonte specializes in "intersectional health education" according to her website, but her work almost exclusively involves the sexualization of children. She previously worked as the director of Health and Wellness at New York City's elite Dalton school. She received public backlash for her "porn literacy" workshop which was taught to juniors at Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School in 2021. Its title was "Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn."

Justine Ang Fonte taught that workshop about the topic to over one hundred students without parental consent. Her junior high school workshop ​​included a list of the most popular searched pornographic terms of 2019, including "creampie," "anal," "gangbang," "stepmom" and more. In addition, students were shown slides of different genres of pornography including; incest-themed, barely legal, consensual or vanilla, and kink and BDSM.

At Dalton, she taught first graders about explicit masturbation through cartoons. While she no longer works at Dalton, she defended her classes in a Pix11 interview and said she was "passionate" about working with kids.

"If we're in a sex-negative world, yeah, porn is going to be bad because kids are defaulting to that to learn about their bonds," Fonte said in the digital panel, explaining that it's best if kids are best exposed to sex first through her and those like her.

"It (porn) is an entertainment industry, and we need to remind young people it's not an education industry," Fonte said.

"And when, you know, people are just thinking to just ban porn, and 'it's always bad,' 'it leads to addiction.' These are very big generalized statements that people are making. It's about managing. It's about understanding, being literate," Fonte said.

"It's about being more aware of the beautiful ways that porn was invented to be this fantastical, wildly unrealistic tool we can use to explore our emotions and our bodies in ways that aren't represented in mainstream media," she added. 

"And now mainstream porn is taking off on its own. But just like any other film that we're looking at, there are many genres and there are some really good movies out there. And we know there's some really bad movies out there." Fonte said, noting that kids have more access to the bad quality porn and that her work can teach them what is bad porn versus good porn and "how there are ways to understand your body in a lot more holistic, comprehensive, intersectional safe ways."

"So I don't want this to be a discussion on anti-porn, because frankly, that's not my stance," she said, explaining that kids and partners are going to see it, she just hopes she gets to educate them her way first.
