Q&A about The Porn Chat

Who does this content concern?

It concerns parents and other adults who want to speak with children about porn, computer games, screens and those who want to be a part of children’s lives & behaviours online.

Is it designed for parents with children at a certain age?

The content is not adapted to age, but sometimes we have special recommendations based on age, e.g. in Nina Rung’s short videos on how to speak with children about porn. We do hope, however, that all parents can benefit and learn from the information. 

What is the content and advices based upon?

The content is primary based on research, clinical experience, children’s testimony and conversations with parents. The advices are produced through interviews and workshops with multiple experts, such as doctors, criminologists, brain scientists and social scientists. A parental focus group of 50% dads and 50% moms from different parts of Sweden have given us feedback on the content and information. We have also talked with young people. The experts that have helped us produce the material are Nina Rung (criminologist and founder of Huskurage), Åsa Kastbom (chief physician at Linköping’s University hospital), Mikis Kanakaris (business developer and coach at 1000 Opportunities), Maria Dufva (criminologist and author), Sven Rollenhagen (expert in computer games addiction), Patrik Wincent (expert in computer games and screens), and Sissela Nutley (brain scientist, author and founder of Arts & Hearts). Our content is continuously updated and is therefore subject to alteration. 

Where does the information about porn, computer games and screens come from?

Part of the information comes from interviews with experts and the other part is gathered from the Public Health Agency of Sweden, the State Media Council as well as national and international scientists and media houses. In addition, we have included and recognized the children’s assembled testimonies in our content. We have also produced a SIFO-analysis.

Why do you write about computer games and screens too?

We receive a lot of questions from parents all over Sweden. These questions mainly concern children’s exposure on the internet, children’s behaviour online and how parents can limit younger children’s access to computer games with 18-year recommendation. We hope that The Porn Chat can give parents answers about screens and internet related questions. Furthermore, we hope parents take the opportunity to speak with one another about these subjects and come together with other parents in school, in the basketball teams and with parents of their children’s friends. 

Who is financing The Porn Chat?

The Porn Chat is financed through gifts from individuals and received funding from the Postal Code Foundation, which however ended in December 2019. The advertising agency INGO has contributed to our website pro bono. Thanks to everyone who has given us support and funding, we have been able to create The Porn Chat.
