'↓'who is affected?'↓'

Each year about 40 percent of
teens and preteens visit sexually
explicit sites either deliberately or
accidentally, studies here and
abroad show. In a study in the
February Pediatrics (Vol. 119, No.
2, pages 247-257), for example,
attorney Janis Wolak,
psychologist Kimberly Mitchell,
PhD, and Finkelhor, of the UNH
center, found that 42 percent of
a nationally representative
sample of 1,500 Internet users
ages 10 to 17 had been exposed
to online porn in the last year,
with two-thirds reporting only
unwanted exposure. In fact, the
incidence of unwanted exposure
has risen for this age group,
from about 26 percent between
1999 and 2000, to 34 percent in
2005, the team has found.
Perhaps not surprisingly, boys
are much more likely to seek out
pornography than girls, and use
increases with age, research
finds. In the UNH team's study,
for instance, 38 percent of 16-
and 17-yea-rold male Internet
users deliberately visited X-rated
sites in the past year, compared
with 8 percent of girls. Similarly,
Australian sociologist Michael
Flood, PhD, of La Trobe University,
reported in the March issue of
the Journal of Sociology (Vol. 43,
No. 1, pages 45-60) that 38
percent of boys and 2 percent of
girls ages 16 and 18 deliberately
accessed such material.
