Porn Survey: Parents are in denial or largely unaware
Parents are oblivious of the extent to which their children are watching pornography, according to a rare in-depth study of teenagersâ€™ viewing habits that shows adult material has become a normalised part of young Britonsâ€™ lives.
The reportâ€™s authors concluded that parents of 16- to 17-year-olds were either in denial or largely unaware of what their child viewed online, with the parents of teenage girls the most likely to be unaware their children were watching pornography.
The research, conducted as part of the governmentâ€™s troubled attempt to introduce age-verification services for online pornography, found that children were often disturbed by being accidentally exposed to material at pre-teen age. But it also found that it provided a significant way for older gay, lesbian, and bisexual teenagers to understand their sexuality....
I was recent thinking back on some old music and was reminded that the "old copper kettle" had been the trap for many a poor young man. What alcohol has been, pornography is much more and much more accessible. It's not the moonshine but the smart phone. May the Lord cause us to rise up against this destruction! And it's likely a reason that there are older teenagers exploring their sexuality. Nonsense. It's called sin.
