The Facts

Helpful facts from recent international data and academic research

Hi there and welcome

There’s so much different information about porn and young people on the internet now and if you’re looking for some helpful facts, typing porn into your search bar may not take you to where you intended…

So, we’ve reviewed the most recent international data using academic research articles and put the findings into two user-friendly facts resources for adults (Porn 101) and young people (Porn: the facts). We’ve also created a reference list of key research relating to porn exposure and use amongst young people and the potential impacts of porn on their attitudes, beliefs, behaviours and mental health.

This is a growing subject area with new research coming out every year, so we’ll continue to learn and update our content as this happens. 

A resource created for adults with an overview of the new porn landscape and current research on the potential impacts of porn on young people.
A youth fact sheet with the lowdown on the new porn landscape and the most recent research on porn’s messages and impacts.
A reference list of research articles relating to porn exposure and usage amongst youth and the potential impacts of porn on young people’s attitudes, beliefs, behaviours and mental health.

In our digital age, it’s a matter of when not if our boys 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.
