Distorted moral comp: Children learn valves at this age which guides them in their life - when introduced to adult choices children develop distorted moral compass that would make them offbalance while making critical choices in life.

I have worked with male clients who regularly saw pornography before age 11 and this overstimulation causes problems in adulthood (e.g. compulsive use of sex, porn, hard time having sex with a real human partner vs. .the image in the porn movies). I have also seen that psychodynamic therapy (and other types too I suspect) can help with this over the long-term.
