The Facts

There’s such different information about porn and young people…

If you’re looking for some helpful facts, typing ‘porn’ into the search bar may not take you to where you intended 😊…

So we’ve reviewed heaps of research articles and have summarised them for you here: Research. And here’s a quick summary of facts for adults (Porn: The Facts for Adults) and  for young people (Porn: The Facts for Youth).


This is new research coming out every year, so we try to update our content regularly, but please be in touch if you have any queries

“In our digital age, it’s a matter of when not if our kids will see porn – and it’s more important than ever that we’re prepared. This means knowing the facts, knowing how to have the conversations, and understanding porn as it is today. Being naive is no longer an option.”
