"Liberated: The New Sexual Revolution," which debuted on Netflix on Feb. 1, was created by Exodus Cry to explore the "normalization" of sexual exploitation among millennials and the effect of the porn industry on them. The documentary, which was prompted by the #MeToo trend, follows the spring break experience of college students in Panama City Beach in Florida, The Christian Post detailed.

"The recent #MeToo revelations have drawn our attention to an insidious and historically unseen underbelly of our culture — rampant sexual harassment and violation. But why does this epidemic exist?" director Benjamin Nolot explained to the Post. "With college spring break as the backdrop, Liberated boldly explores the cultural underpinnings that shape our conceptions of gender and sexuality. We feel that this is a critical part of the conversation about ending sexual violence."

In addition, Nolot said "Liberated" aims to spread awareness and spark transformation among millennials. The film also aims to expose the dangers of a society that sexualizes women and grooms men to use them for sex.

In an article on World Net Daily, David Kupelian explored the reason for the sudden surge in incidents of sexual abuse in a post-Christian culture. He said this situation was what leftists have been dreaming about and demanding, as they want total sexual freedom where they will never be labeled as immoral, predatory or sinful.

Kupelian lamented the substitute of morality for consensuality in post-Christian America, saying it was already considered acceptable if there is mutual consent. He added that this situation can only be remedied by adhering to the biblical laws and Christian values instituted by God.
