The effects that access and exposure to pornography has on children and young people


This report from the Children’s Commissioner for England finds that there is a link between pornography and the attitudes and values of young people who see it. Pornography has been linked to unrealistic attitudes about sex; maladaptive attitudes about relationships; more sexually permissive attitudes; greater acceptance of casual sex; beliefs that women are sex objects; more frequent thoughts about sex; sexual uncertainty; and less progressive gender role attitudes.
