Porn stats on the Brain

1. According to a recent University of East London survey among 16 to 20 year olds, 97 per cent of the boys and almost 80 per cent of the girls had seen sexual images. Both sexes are reported as similarly comfortable with viewing such imagery. However, nearly three times as many boys than girls felt their use of porn was impacting on their relationships or becoming a dependency. The survey also reports that over seven per cent of the boys felt their viewing was getting out of control.  (Source: http://www.uel.ac.uk)

2. According to the 2013 survey of teen porn habits conducted for the recent Channel 4 programme Porn on the Brain  12 to 16 year old boys were far more likely than girls to have viewed sexual images. Nearly 80 per cent of boys had watched people having sex online while for girls the figure was 33 per cent. Whilst some girls had never watched porn, all the boys surveyed claimed to have done so. 51 per cent of boys reported looking ‘quite a few times’ and 27 per cent reported looking a lot. (Source: www.uel.ac.uk)

3. It appears that teen interest in online pornography might be fairly level as a 2006/7 survey estimated that 80% of 15–17 year-olds had been exposed to hardcore images. (Source: Jerry Ropelato, http://internet-filter-review.toptenreviews.com/internet-pornography-statistics.html)

4. 80% of 35–55 year-old compulsive users of hardcore porn reported that their life-issues got worse once they had a broadband Internet connection that they could access porn through. The general view was that they used increasing amounts of porn to self-medicate and hide from their real life issues. (Source: Duncan E. Stafford, therapy-space Cambridge)
