Porn Watching Teens

Teenagers who watch pornography are more likely to become a sexual predator, research suggests. 

Cutting their access to sexually explicit content could prevent them from becoming rapists, scientists claim.

But despite the easy access to pornography, other methods could also help to cut down on sexual abuse cases.

Improving sex education at school and teaching youngsters to respect their future partners could prevent deviant behaviour, experts say. 


Researchers from the University of Melbourne asked 14 teenagers what could have been made different in their life to have prevented their sexual abusive behaviour.


Of the participants, three directly attributed their behaviour to their pornography consumption.

While they also highlighted the need to improve sex education as a way to promote respectful relationships.

Researchers also asked six psychologists to reflect on their insights, allowing them to come up with three main prevention techniques.

They were: making home and school relationships safe, reforming sexual education and managing pornography access

It was found that more knowledge of meaningful relationships could counter the distorted messages they see in pornographic content

Study author Gemma McKibbin said the findings made it clear that more needed to be done in sexual health policy for youngsters.

She added: 'The access that young people are having to pornography, as well as our collective "turning a blind eye", is akin to a kind of cultural grooming of children.'


'We can't on the one hand say we don't want to talk with young children about sexuality, while on the other hand do nothing about the multi-billion-dollar pornography industry and the telecommunications industry that is enabling access.


'Pornography can't be seen as the sole responsibility of parents or schools because it has gone way beyond that. 

'We probably need to engage directly with the pornography industry and the telecommunications industry.

'Consistent, protective sex education needed to be introduced as soon as children started school, if not before.'

Previous studies have shown that about half the victims of child-on-child sexual abuse are under the age of six, while the children who abuse are themselves likely to be aged just 12

While a study published in JAMA Psychiatry in 2014 found regularly viewing pornography seemed to dull the response to sexual stimulation over time.

And German researchers found men who watch pornography may be shrinking their brains

The striatum area of the brain, linked with the motivation and reward response, shrank in size the more porn a person viewed




study by the UK’s Institute for Public Policy Research surveyed 500 18-year-olds about the impact of porn on their lives. Most of the respondents reported that accessing pornography was common throughout their school years, began in their early teens and had a damaging effect on their sexual and relationship lives.

Dr. Anthony Jack, a researcher and neuroscience professor at Case Western Reserve University stated that recent studies show “…widespread rates of sexual dysfunction… such that approximately 50% of late adolescents of both sexes report sexual dysfunction of clinical severity”.  (See “Your Brain on Porn” by Gary Wilson)
Another study by researchers in the US found that among a sample of over 900 emerging adults in college more frequent porn viewing was correlated with a greater number of sexual hook-ups and one night stands.
Other recent studies of the brain activity of chronic porn users have begun to show detrimental effects such as:
Less gray matter and reduced reward center activity while viewing sexually explicit imagery, i.e. desensitization.
A weakening of nerve connections between the reward centers and the higher brain centers thus increasing impulsiveness and impairing decision making.
Porn induced erectile dysfunction
As one of the researchers put it, “…regular consumption of pornography more or less wears out your reward system.” And clinicians here and abroad are seeing many more young adults and teens who can achieve erection and ejaculation with porn but not with a real person.
Treating the young porn addict: three models
The current crop of very young addicts have some special characteristics. The pre-teen brain is not fully mature and their emerging sexuality programs them to react powerfully to sexual stimuli. Getting hooked on porn at an early age can be damaging in at least three different ways. These in turn require interventions very different from the years of addiction treatment and relapse prevention that are appropriate for most adult addicts.
I. The drug-driven model
Jeff’s addiction appears to have come about through the habit-forming nature of porn itself in the absence of any other obvious psychopathology.
At first I thought Jeff was just like any other sex addict client, only younger. He had been watching porn on his computer since he was 13, and at age 18 he realized he had begun to fixate on child porn. Fortunately this scared him enough that he came clean to his parents who put him in a 6 week residential program for sex addiction.
After the residential program Jeff saw me for therapy for about a year. He also attended weekly Sex Addicts Anonymous meetings. He was an attractive, sophisticated kid with a sunny disposition, but at 20 he was still a virgin who had never dated a girl. While he was seeing me he began dating a very appropriate same-age young woman and eventually began a robust sexual relationship with her. Although that relationship ended he never returned to porn use that I know of. I am as certain as I can be that he had no residual attraction to children.
What is striking is that although Jeff went along with the usual program of sex addiction recovery, what seems to have worked for him was just getting away from porn! With abstinence, it seems his young brain rebalanced and in a period of months he was able to resume normal sexual development. He became more outgoing and began college with the ambition to become a filmmaker. Jeff needed a structure that would allow him to stay away from porn along with some outside support to get his life back on a normal track.
II. The trauma model
Brad discovered internet porn at 12 and became instantly hooked. He reports that his use escalated very rapidly as did his sexual tastes. He was binging on porn very heavily every day. While still in his teens he says that he quit, primarily out of exhaustion. His sexual interest diminished to zero and as of his mid 20’s he reported that his libido seemed to be permanently gone. He attributes this result to a kind of virtual sexual trauma.
There is some research that would support the idea that very early exposure to sexually explicit material can have effects on the developing psyche similar to actual sexual assault. The young mind is not ready to deal with the shock, adrenaline and stress of the hyper-arousal caused by porn. It thus constitutes a violation which can leave lasting sexual scars. Brad correctly sought out treatment with a specialist in sexual trauma rather than sex addiction.
III. The hybrid model
Ken is a happily married man in his late 20’s. He entered treatment for an addiction to porn and masturbation dating from childhood. He had no other sexually addictive behaviors but he had significant early trauma. His father died of a cocaine overdose when Ken was a toddler. Ken became the “man of the house” at age 3 and soon after had a serious illness requiring months of hospitalization. He had an unhealthy relationship with his narcissistic, demanding mother. Also as a child he witnessed his teenage sisters being molested by an older cousin.
After about 8 months of abstinence from porn and with the support of group therapy Ken has shifted gears. His relationship with his wife whom he adores is going well and he is comfortable with a new-found intimacy with her. In fact Ken no longer presents as an addict; he does however have issues that he knows he needs to work on. In particular he knows he has never fully understood or worked through his early childhood experiences and he is working his way out of his enmeshed relationship with his mother. He is appropriately seeking help for these problems and appears to be at zero risk of relapse into porn addiction.
So the good news is that the youthful porn addict’s brain can recover and resume a more normal developmental trajectory. And given that their only addictive behavior is internet porn and that their total time of usage relatively short, they do not have to overcome addiction as a pervasive and deeply entrenched coping style. They can get cured and stay cured. The bad news is that there is as yet so little awareness of the risks to children and teens on the part of the medical profession, the academic community, schools and the public at large. As with so many public health issues, prevention and education are sorely needed.
