Teenage boys used to sneak a peek at their dad's Playboy. Now they're watching all the hardcore pornography they want to on their smartphones and laptops. Access to porn has grown steadily -- and dramatically -- over the last 30 years.

But how has porn changed? What's the long-term impact of exposure to porn? These are the central questions of a new CBC Radio Ideas documentary, Generation Porn. (Listen to a podcast of the show.)

The man behind the documentary, journalist and novelist Hassan Ghedi Santur, joined Live Online host Lauren O'Neil for a live webcam chat, joined by two other special guests, Gail Dines, professor of sociology and women's studies in Boston, and Carlyle Jansen, sex educator and owner of the store Good For Her in Toronto.
