Sexual mind programming: Over half of boys think pornographic sex is realistic


Boys who view online pornography believe it's a realistic depiction of sex, according to a study of British high school students by Middlesex University.

The research, which was commissioned by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), found that out of 1,000 pupils aged 11-16, 53 percent said they had viewed online pornography. While some searched for it, many were likely to have come across it accidentally, often through pop-up ads.

Indeed, 53 percent of boys who had viewed pornography said they thought it depicted a realistic impression of sex, while 39 percent of girls thought the images were realistic.

Some 41 percent of boys and girls who viewed porn for the first time felt 'curious,' while 27 percent said they were 'shocked', 27 percent 'confused,' and 24 percent said they were 'disgusted.'

X-rated sites were accessed for the first time on a mobile device or tablet by 33 percent of those surveyed.

One girl, aged between 11 and 12, told researchers she "didn't like it because it came on by accident," the Guardian reports.

"I don't want my parents to find out and the man looked like he was hurting her, he was holding her down and she was screaming and swearing," the girl added. "I know about sex but it didn't look nice. It makes me feel sick if I think about my parents doing it like that."
