- "Of all activities on the internet, porn has the most potential to become addictive” say Dutch neuroscientists. To date, every neurological study (over 55) offers support for internet pornography fitting the addiction model including seven showing causality. In other words, remove the porn and the symptoms decrease or remit completely.
- Porn-induceret erektil dysfunktion: The more porn, the higher the risk of erectile dysfunction. Around 23% of men under-35 who responded to the survey had some level of erectile dysfunction when having sex with a partner.
- Forskning by the British Board of Film Classification has found that in the UK 1.4 million children a month watch pornography. Fourteen years or younger was the age that 60 per cent of children first saw online porn. And 56 percent of 11 to 13-year-olds would like to be protected from ‘over-18’s’ material online.
We appreciate the value of journalists to make the wider public aware of the risks around the use of internet pornography especially for children. We are happy to help wherever possible to provide research, interviewees and context for stories.
Our main focus for now is the impact of internet pornography on mental and physical health, relationships, educational attainment and legal liability, particularly as regards children and adolescents.
