What is to become of society when four out of five teens regularly access hardcore porn on the Internet? This is a question many leaders in England are asking after a disturbing new report finds that the viewing and sharing of hardcore pornography among high school students has become epidemic.
About 25% of young patients seeking counseling in the UK are there for Internet porn addiction. There are fears that the rise of Internet pornography is leaving teenagers unable to maintain normal relationships and even increasing their susceptibility to grooming by sexual abusers. The increased victimization of teen girls is among the most common of several concerns mentioned in the report.
As one leader told the UK Daily Mail, "This generation is going through an experiment. No one knows how they will survive this unprecedented assault on their sexual development. They are guinea pigs for the next generation."
