1 In 3 Boys Heavy Porn Users, Study Shows
Study Shows Rural Children Access Porn More Often

Is your child watching to porn? You may be surprised.

According to a new study by the University of Alberta, boys aged 13 and 14 living in rural areas, are the most likely of their age group to access pornography.

The study found that parents need to be more aware of how to monitor their children's viewing habits.

Students were surveyed anonymously about how and how often they accessed sexually explicit media content on digital or satellite television, video and DVD and the Internet. Ninety percent of males and 70 percent of females reported accessing sexually explicit media content at least once. More than one-third of the boys reported viewing pornographic DVDs or videos "too many times to count", compared to eight percent of the girls surveyed.

A majority of the students, 74 percent, reported viewing pornography on the Internet. Forty-one percent saw it on video or DVD and 57 percent reported seeing it on a specialty TV channel. Nine percent of the teens reported they accessed pornography because someone over 18 had rented it; 6 percent had rented it themselves and 20 percent viewed it at a friend's house, according to a press release.

The study also revealed different patterns of use between males and females, with boys doing the majority of deliberate viewing, and a significant minority planning social time around viewing porn with male friends.

The survey results showed that girls reported more accidental or unwanted exposure online and tend to view porn in same-gender pairs or with mixed groups.

Though being curious about sexually explicit media may seem a "natural" part of early adolescence, porn is a major presence in the lives of youth, the survey said. The media environment in Alberta homes makes access to porn easy for teens and viewing pornography at a young age can set children up for problems later on, said Sonya Thompson, a masters graduate student at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, and author of the study.

"We don't know how we are changing sexual behaviors, attitudes, values and beliefs by enabling this kind of exposure and not talking with kids about it in any meaningful way," Thompson said.

Thompson, formerly a sex education teacher, said she is concerned about the health and social messages pornography sends. She said excessive early exposure to pornography may be harmful in terms of expectations going into relationships.

"What kinds of expectations will these young people have going into their first sexual relationships? It may be setting up a big disconnect between boys and girls and may be normalizing risky sex practices," Thompson said.

Almost half of rural youths in the survey reported seeing pornographic videos or DVDs at least once, compared to one-third of the urban participants. Thompson is unsure why rural teens access porn more on video and DVD, but suggests that parents may think distance acts as a buffer.

"Maybe they have a false sense of thinking they are far away from unhealthy influences," she said.

Rural boys also reported a lower incidence of parents talking with them about sexual media content. Urban girls were most likely to have had discussions with their parents. And while the majority of teens surveyed said their parents expressed concern about sexual content, that concern hasn't led to discussion or supervision, and few parents are using available technology to block sexual content, according to the study.

"Families using media together is no longer the norm, so parents need to know what their kids have access to in their alone time," Thompson said.

She also suggests that teachers also need to tackle the issue in sex education classes.

Retailers, government and the media industry regulators also need to work with parents to ensure they are educated about limiting their children's access to sexually explicit material, have strategies to talk with their teens, and that laws around the sale of porn to minors are enforced, Thompson said.

A total of 429 students aged 13 and 14 from 17 urban and rural schools across Alberta, Canada, were surveyed anonymously for the survey.

If the interweb had been around when I was that age, I know what I'd be checking out. Sure beats the water-logged Playboy/Penthouse mags I'd find out in the field behind the 7-Eleven store.

Anybody here remember Miss March of '74, Pamela Zinszer? She set my heart a'flutter, back in the day.
