How much evidence is enough when it comes to porn, children and harm?
What’s all the fuss about? I mean, really, does porn harm children? Does stumbling across a few nudes really impact a child and their understanding of the world? And if it does harm them, where’s the evidence?
Kids now live in a culture that is significantly different to even as recent as five years ago. The proliferation of mobile devices and broadband Internet changed everything and research is struggling to keep up. For this very reason, it’s important that parents aren’t lulled to sleep on the nature of online, hard-core mainstream pornography. Whilst I’m certainly not wanting to be an alarmist about this, if we truly pull back the covers on porn, we see that it’s most certainly not harmless nudity or a bit of slap and tickle.
