Statistics show that seven in 10 children have accidentally accessed pornography on the internet.

Reason 2

Once they hit age 13, 49% of teenagers accidentally encounter pornography at least once per month.

While many younger children are accidentally exposed to pornographic content at some point, it becomes a monthly issue once they become teenagers. Teens spend more time in corners of the internet like social media, Reddit, and Discord where inappropriate content is hard to avoid. Many adults who describe themselves as addicted to pornography report that the habit began in their teenage years.

Reason 5

Pornographic content regularly features unsafe sexual behavior and demeaning attitudes toward women.

Consumers of pornography are more likely to engage in high-risk sexual behaviors, such as casual sex with strangers, lack of condom use, and a higher number of sexual partners. These behaviors have been linked to poor health outcomes, such as an increased risk for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).1 In a poll about violence in sex, more than 39% of women surveyed reported that they were the victim of unwanted violence (slapping, choking, etc.) during consensual sex.2
