28 per cent of 11-to-12-year-olds report seeing pornography and by 15, children were more likely to have seen online pornography with 65 per cent of 15-to-16-year-olds reporting seeing pornography. Children were as likely to stumble across pornography as to search for it deliberately...Although 27 per cent of children felt shocked when they first viewed pornography, that decreased to only eight per cent in relation to their current viewing of it. 31 per cent of the boys and 15 per cent of the girls reported that they continue to see pornography after first viewing it.
