Pornography

by KidsSafe on August 28, 2012

Like the, old but more true now than ever, saying goes: sex sells. Pornography is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world and it shows no signs of stopping. This business is a multibillion dollar one that keeps growing. As of 2012, pornographic websites are the most viewed sites online. The online pornography market has come to the forefront in regards to how people watch and view pornographic videos and pictures. People no longer have to go to an adult store to buy these tapes and magazines.

This takes away the embarrassment factor that would stop many people from viewing the pornography. However, in today’s technological society, anything can be found online and this has lead to a massive influx in the amount of porn that is viewed. Unlike in the adult stores, where you had to be an actual adult, the Internet allows anyone and everyone to view pornography.

A study held in 2002 stated that 9 out of 10 children aged between 8 and 16 had seen some type of pornography. This scary statistic means that more and more children are viewing this potentially harmful type of adult entertainment. Every single second almost 29,000 Internet users are viewing pornography.

It can be argued that pornography is just a form of entertainment and that may be the case for many people but one must be extremely carefully with it as online pornography can often be a dangerous game. Unfortunately, there are people out there that are paedophiles and are using online pornography to full their desires.

Every day, there are 116,000 searches online for “child pornography”. This means that there are a lot of paedophiles out there that are actively looking for these sick images and videos.

If you are going to view pornography, then be careful at what websites you choose to do so. Whether pornography is good or not is a personal choice that each individual has to make but if you are watching pornographic videos please make sure that they are professional done and that everybody taking part is of age.
