    THIRD of children have seen online porn by the time they are 10, shocking study reveals | Mail Online

    That first stat disturbs me. The second doesn't even surprise me at all, but makes me laugh about what a joke it is with all the laws trying to stop kids from seeing porn.

    Many porn sites have no age screening process, and for many of those that do, it's a complete joke. And often they show you porn before you even tell them what your age supposedly is. Not to mention the sites that you can find accidentally, like the time my brother's elementary school teacher went to a .com website instead of a .gov website and showed the entire class a porn site...

    That doesn't surprise me anymore.
    Over here, you can see kids watching porn in every internet center. I used to be shocked, but unfortunately I'm trying to ignore it because there's nothing I can do.

    They lie to their parents saying they want to play a game, but instead "play" with porn sites. Most of them are no older than 11.

    1/3 of kids see porn by age 10
    8/10 have by 14-16
    80-90% have figured out which sites don't have viruses by age 16+


    I remember I saw porn in the fourth grade. It was more of a curiosity thing because my friends and I were just learning words like sex and other profanity. Internet search engines were starting to become more sophisticated so we searched up everything we could think of. :lol:

    Nothing has changed over the last couple of decades...
    When I was teaching after hours activities in a school, there was one 8 y/o who wasn't participating because he was busy googling porn words :sigh:
    I don't get it.
    In another class I taught (12 y/os) there was one boy in particular that all he could think of was porn in any possible method. I was teaching them 3d animation. So what did he do? he created boobs in 3d. :rolleyes:
    Another time when I was teaching the same class stop animation he decided to reenact a fucking scene with fuzzy wire brushes which he made to look like female and male. He was so graphic about it that he didn't forget the ejaculation :-/

    Since then, nothing surprises me about young kids and porn.

    God, that is disturbing...(re: third of children have seen online porn by the age of 10), but, it does not surprize or entirely bother me that young teens watch some porn / look at pornographic material because that is usually around that age when they become sexually curious and begin to experiment, etc.

    Anyway, if parents of young children don't want their children to view porn sites all the have to do is adjust the parental controls; of course with older children it's a bit difficult because usually they have their own computers or know how to adjust the parental controls.

    Porn shows sex in unrealistic ways and fails to address intimacy, love, connection or romance. It doesn't mean every young person is going out to rape somebody but it increases the likelihood.'

    In all honesty, I think Disney movies are just as bad for kids regarding love. Both porn and these ridiculous love movies showcase ridiculous scenarios that never happen in real life. Also, these stats support something I've been saying for a while and that's that parents need to be able to teach their kids as soon as puberty begins maybe even a year or two before about how the human body works. For some reason in this country, we seem to think a little boy seeing a tit is going to turn him into a sex-starved degenerate with a permanent hard on and a penchant for rape.

    This country is undergoing a change in how we accept and view sexuality in a way that is more open which is great because it will stop a lot of sex crimes and probably a lot of mental health issues people develop in this country. Also, plenty of these sites have age filters but there's nothing difficult about passing through them. That's why other sites don't bother because an age filter doesn't do anything. It barely even passes on liability from the site to the user.

    Looks like I'm in one of the statistics, I saw my first porno when I was 10, at my aunt's house secretly watching the Spice channel.

    I'm not surprised. I've seen some porn sites or even sites that are not porn but normal video sites - except every now and then, someone would post a sexually explicit video.

    Aside from the fear of exposing kids to sexual acts that we don't want them to do until they're mature enough...is porn really any worse than exposing them to the daily news on TV, cartoons (not sure if anyone noticed how violent they can get in the guise of being "funny" like someone getting hit by a house falling from the sky, but hey, no blood), etc.

    Do we live in a Utopian society where Sex is still this disgusting sinful thing?

    To the Parents I ask... Whats more offensive... Having your child see two consenting adults having sex... or being called every derogatory term known to man in one match of Halo 3?

    I had to laugh... The other night I was told a statistic that cracked me up. Apparently you're more likely to be called a Faggot in a single Game of Halo than at a Gay Pride Parade.

    But hey, violence and sex are whats ruining the kids right? It has nothing to do with the Sheltering that Society wants to establish.

    I say fuck it. Worst case scenario... you educate your youngsters about Sex and the Repercussions of it.... Thats what My parents did, they didnt shelter me from Sex or Violence. Instead they openly explained them when I asked. Now look at me... 6 years in a Relationship that originated in my Teens and I still dont have any accidental children. Wonder how many people can say they've pulled that off.

    I say Educate... dont Shelter. The more you shelter the less the kids learn. Its like Alcohol and Tobacco. You put an Age on it (18 and 21) it becomes this Taboo thing teenagers all strive for. But in reality... there isnt much of anything special about either of those activities other than not being able to participate in them before the restrictive dates.

    Alcohol and Tobacco dont appear to be as much of an issue in the countries that don't have those Age Establishments... could it be because the Taboo Curiosity doesn't exist there? Or are the people just inherently more responsible?

    I blame Religion.
