Boys as young as 12 are so ­addicted to online porn they can’t make it through the school day without fulfilling their “need” to see explicit images, top teachers and academics have warned.

One teacher from an elite Sydney boys high school has compared the scourge to “smoking, alcohol and drugs”.

He warned it was even ­becoming an issue among primary school students.

“I deal with adolescents every day who have an addiction to internet pornography,” Redfield College science teacher David Youl said.

“Many of these young men find it difficult to fulfill their normal daily duties (including school work and spending time with family or friends) due to a ‘need’ to access internet pornography for excessive amounts of time.”

Mr. Youl said the issue was also affecting how boys treated girls socially.

“We’ve also seen an increase in the prevalence of primary school students who have accessed porn,” he said. “They’ve shown it to other students on their phones.”

Research claims up to 95 per cent of 16-year-old boys are now regular users of porn and children as young as six are exposed to it due to its availability through online devices.

Mr. Youl — who is one of hundreds of concerned teachers and academics who wrote to the Australian government and warned of the harm internet porn was having on children — he said “many parents” were blind to the danger.

“In the same way that parents and governments try to protect children from the ­potential damage caused by smoking, alcohol and drugs, it is imperative the government take steps to minimize the harm that pornography is causing to many young people,” he said.

Christine Kuhl, a mother of three daughters, was one of the many increasingly concerned parents.

“I do not know if (my daughters) access pornography online, but I do know boys they may befriend are statistically very likely to,” she said.

“This concerns me a great deal, as I think that it will affect my daughters’ experiences of sex — possibly making it a ­violent experience between adversaries, rather than a beautiful one between equals.”


Research shows that young people are as likely to see online porn accidentally as they are to actively search for it. That means that with the amount of porn that’s online today, it is actually easier for a kid to stumble across it then to search for it on purpose. And for almost 2/3 of the children, this first exposure to porn happened right in their own home.

Another unsurprising finding goes to show the escalating nature of porn viewing. Children described how their feelings towards porn have changed over time. 27% surveyed reported feeling ‘shocked’ the first time they viewed it, but follow up work revealed that just 8% remained shocked after the first time they watched it.

Citing this research, an incredibly in-depth survey by The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (click here to read the full report) shows the massive role that porn is playing in the development of young kids these days. What they’re learning is skewed perceptions of sex and harmful attitudes about their natural sexuality. By being educated and raising awareness on these findings, we can hopefully spare the next generation of the many harms that are sure to come due to this pornification of our society.

  1. Are we sure that it is not the teachers ?
    When I was in grade 5, the make teacher would pin the girls up against the wall one by one & feel their titties.
    When I was in grade 6, that male teacher would frequent the homes of the latch key kids in his class at lunch time – mummy & daddy were at work all day you see.
    At highschool year 8, the history teacher would keep a student in after school every now & then.
    It could be the teachers, covering up their own extra carricular activities with the students.

  2. By the way, the ABS system has crashed – how did I know – may wonky crystal ball is worth it’s weight in gold mate / or the whole system is so dodgy that it ia a miracle that it works at all / or maybe the bludgers forgot to turn on the power.
