By Daily Mail Reporter. Girls as young as 12 who are posting images of themselves online wearing lingerie, because they want to ‘feel sexy – like Megan Fox,’ have become the subject of an award-winning new documentary.
Sexy Baby: A Documentary About Sexiness and The Cyber Age, opening in U.S. movie theaters tomorrow, reveals how a generation of children now gets their sex education from online porn, thanks to Facebook, smart phones and instant access to the Internet.
Following three young women, aged between 12 and 34, the film sheds light on how technology and pornography are shaping the sexual identity of young girls, something the filmmakers, former Miami Herald journalists Ronna Gradus and Jill Bauer, hope will be a ‘conversation starter’ for parents.
The film, a first for the two women, had its world premiere earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival. It has been labelled ‘troubling’ by parents, who agree it ‘brings up important topics that require mass discussion,’ as said by one New York mother, Hedi.
Manhattan resident Winnifred, 12, features in the documentary and strives to emulate her musical idol, Lady Gaga by wearing fish-net stockings and midriff-baring tops. Read more from this story HERE.
