Pornography is shaping children's attitudes towards sex and leading to increased child on child assault, research reveals.
This week, the Chief Censor is set to release NZ Youth and Porn, a study of 2000 teenagers identifying how and why young New Zealanders are viewing pornography.
It comes as another NZ study reports teachers are finding 13-year-olds had been exposed to porn; and anecdotal evidence from school nurses that teenagers were increasingly suffering sexual-related injuries as a result of porn.
NZ Youth and Porn
We surveyed more than 2,000 New Zealanders aged 14-17 for the research project NZ Youth and Porn: Research findings of a survey on how and why young New Zealanders view online pornography. This page provides a summarised version of the key findings.
