Exploring the impact of pornography on young people

05 May 2017

We are looking for 16-21 year olds in the UK to take part in our research study looking at the impact of pornography (or 'porn') on young people. It will take 15-45 minutes to take part, depending on your answers.

Research so far tells us that some young people find pornography helpful or enjoyable, but other young people find it upsetting and it can affect how they feel and behave.

In this study, we want to understand why different young people have different reactions to pornography.
