When it comes to sex and the Internet, the news headlines aren't the half of it these days. A Department of Homeland Security official was arrested this week for soliciting what he thought was a 14-year-old girl online. Then, there is the California teenage boy who made hundreds of thousands of dollars performing sexually on the web.

The real story is much larger — a world, a nation now awash in 24/7 hardcore sex, always there, always on. Shaping young minds. Messing with marriages. Moving sex from the bedroom to the pale glow of a computer screen.

Hear about sex and the internet — the unprecedented ocean of porn and possibilities now at our fingertips, and how it's effecting lives and society.
