UTAH PORN SCHOOL SAVES TEEN SEX ADDICTS




AMERICAN mums and dads are spending US$9,000 a month to save their porn addicted sons, by sending them to a desert boot camp designed to shake them out of their bad habit.

The Oxbow Academy, known as Porn School, opened seven years ago in Utah and now has 24 boys aged 13 to 17, said school director Stephen Schultz. He said some of the boys had gone from obsessive porn addiction to acting out fantasy scenes in real life and molesting other kids.

At Oxbow, the students are given a tough regime of daily chores, hours of therapy, lie detector tests, and all phones and personal computers are banned at the school. Each day begins at 6am. And although there are full-time catering staffs, the students have to do their own washing and laundry.

In the afternoon, the kids are bussed to a second campus for "holistic therapy" classes, which includes art, music and horsemanship. (We guess they've never seen Peter Shaffer's play, Equus.) There are "qualified high school teachers" on staff and the kids do the same lessons as they would in a regular school.

Every teenager has access to a computer for their schoolwork, which only allows them to open encyclopaedia pages. A school day ends at 9pm and the teens have one hour to lounge in a communal meeting room. And like ordinary schools, there’s homework.

The kids are also given therapy assignments to help them address their sexual issues. Parents are required to join their kids at one therapy session a week, via Skype, and they have to attend a two-day seminar together every month.

The school director likens porn addiction to heroin abuse. "Most porn addicts get agitated when they're deprived of their online sources," said Schultz.

"One boy from Chicago actually got the shakes like a drug abuser. He was in very poor shape when he arrived. He'd been on his computer 10 to 12 hours a day looking at porn. He wasn't eating, he was dehydrated, had poor hygiene. He'd done nothing but watch porn."

He added that teens that have indulged in "inappropriate sexual behaviour" have a sense of shame and won't readily admit everything they've done. "If the boys disclose something criminal, like touching a neighbour's child, we have to report that to the state where the offence was committed."

One student, John, was just 10 when he was first exposed to pornography. Now 18, he clearly recalls, "My cousin was babysitting and I came in when he was watching porn on TV. It was pretty hardcore stuff and I'd never seen anything like it. He let me watch, too."

"It became an issue when I was about 13 and around girls at school. I found myself thinking about those images and I started searching out online porn. We had a computer at home, but it was downstairs so I looked on my games console and phone. I watched threesomes, women on women. I wanted it more and more. Whenever I had a free moment, I'd find a way to be alone so I could watch porn. It seemed out of my control."

"At 15, I had a girlfriend and we started sleeping together. One day, she found some porn on my iPod and she was angry but intrigued. We watched it together. Looking back, it was really twisted. My concentration at school was affected, too. It degrades everyone, the people who make it and the people who watch it."
