Young people and porn…….

An interesting article in the Guardian shows what many young people feel about porn.

“Almost eight out of 10 young women said pornography had led to pressure on girls to look and act a certain way, while 66% said “it would be easier growing up if pornography was less easy to access for young people”.

Most young men and women in the Opinium poll said viewing pornography had become typical when they were aged 13 to 14, although 10% of respondents said it was common among children as young as 11.

When asked about sex education, 61% said adults were out of touch with the relationships of young people and 56% said adults found it hard to understand or help with on-line issues.”

We’ve recently developed our pages around pornography -based on what our Relationship & Sex Education Youth Council have told us is needed. The RSE Youth Council will also be involved in the development of a new RSE programme for secondary schools, being piloted next academic year.
