Is that porn your child is watching online? How do you know?
Pornhub is just one of thousands of porn websites so these figures help us to gain some idea of just how much porn is available online. So what are the chances of young children viewing porn online? Research from the UK last year shows about 6% of school-aged children actually seek out pornography online, including almost 3% of primary school children. But most young children who view sexual images or sexual activity online come across it by accident. One US study back in 2007 found two-thirds of 10- to 17-years-olds viewing porn had “unwanted exposure”, and the figure was rising. This is a big issue!
