Porn hits the headlines again

ATVOD instructed market research firm Nielsen, to routinely monitor the general online habits of a volunteer panel of 45,000 desktop PC and laptop users across the UK. Over the course of one month and as reported by the BBC:-

“6% of children aged 15 years or younger had accessed an adult website
5% of visitors to such sites had been under-18
One website alone had been visited by 112,000 boys in the UK aged between 12 and 17-years-old
Of the wider population, 23% of those who had used the net over the month had visited an adult site
Visitors to adult sites spent an average of 15 minutes looking at them during each visit and typically clocked up two-and-a-half hours of time in total over the month.”

One thing for sure is that the above fugures were probably an overestimate. Most of our young people are growing up with porn and its becoming the norm.

Atvod should continue with its drive. Fine if you want to watch porn but provide a card or passport or ID to prove you are over 18.

Let those who want to watch it work for it.Â
