John Van Arnam, Executive Director, SME, BA


John has an 23-year advocacy protecting children from viewing Explicit Adult Material, and a passion for real-world practical solutions. To be clear, there is no amount of online pornography that could be considered ‘safe’ for children, or ‘just part of growing up.’ John sees our young people viewing explicit adult material as an avoidable challenge. He and his team raise critical awareness about the dangers of young people watching this content, and they have created real-life solutions and conversations that allow the parents to discuss these dangers with their children. His team teaches parents and children how to have the pornography prevention conversation, which he has called “The Third Talk™.”

John has surrounded himself with great people who share his passion for protecting kids.
