A quantitative and qualitative examination of the impact of online pornography on the values, attitudes, beliefs and behaviours of children and young people.
This paper draws on data from the first national survey of secondary school boys and girls regarding their attitudes and feelings about online pornography, whether viewing it deliberately or accidentally.
This is the most extensive survey of 11-16 year olds regarding online pornography. The sample is representative of the four nations of the UK and includes boys and girls.
