Young girls face the consequences of young men's unfettered access to hardcore porn;
We discovered that alarming numbers of girls are pressured into highly explicit acts. The results of our poll of 2,000 young people aged 16 to 21, which was carried out by Survation, uncovers the shocking toll of porn culture in our schools. We wanted to see how easy access to thousands of online clips showing brutal, dehumanised sex was affecting our young men and women and their attitudes to romance, intimacy and consent. Our statistics are backed up by a damning new Ofsted report which found that nine out of ten girls experience sexist name-calling and are sent unwanted explicit pictures in school. And our survey revealed further disturbing facts — for not only do girls often have to run a daily gauntlet of sexist and misogynistic behaviour, but the way they first experience intimate acts has utterly changed in just a generation.
