A third of pupils aged ten view pornography on the internet

Daily Mail (UK) 23rd November 2010
One in three children is accessing a ‘tsunami’ of explicit pornographic images on the internet by the age of ten, a study has revealed. Four in five teenagers regularly look up unsuitable photographs or film on their computers or mobile phones, it also suggested. Campaigners warned that exposure to these images inflicts ‘serious mental harm’ on children and prevents them forming healthy adult relationships in later life. The average age of a child first exposed to pornography is just 11.  …. The figures were compiled from polls by YouGov, research in America and a study by child behavioural expert Tanya Byron.
