The Impact of Pornography on Young People: Research, Practice, and Solutions

November 2023


The average age of first exposure to pornography is between 9 and 11 years old. What happens to young people when they watch pornography? Their attitudes and behaviors are shaped by what they see — most of which is degrading, misogynistic, and violent.

Culture Reframed’s 2023 virtual conference addressed the many harms of pornography to children and youth with a focus on child sexual abuse. Experts from multiple fields — including doctors, psychologists, and front-line child protection professionals — shared emerging research and first-hand experience identifying pornography consumption as a driver of this abuse. The event also explored the growing trend of adult men who develop a sexual interest in children due to porn habituation.

Attendees from across the world — medical professionals, child advocates, concerned parents, and more — gathered to learn how we can work together to spread awareness of the growing dangers of the pornography industry and help to prevent the harms of porn on young people.

Pornography and Prostitution: Connecting the Dots

December 2022


In 2022, Culture Reframed’s virtual conference explored the inextricable link between pornography and prostitution and their harmful impacts on women and girls.

In the 1970s and 80s, feminists argued that prostitution could not be separated from pornography, or, as Andrea Dworkin so vividly put it, “porn is prostitution with the camera rolling.” With the migration of the sex industry to online platforms, Andrea Dworkin’s prophetic words are undeniable.

Over the ensuing decades, there has been a highly successful public relations campaign by the porn industry to distance itself from other aspects of the commercial sex industry as a way to legitimize pornography. This disguises what porn really is: filmed prostitution that is coercive and abusive for the female performers and closely linked to other parts of the sex industry in both its practices and societal impact.
