A new ‘Time To Talk About Porn’ report shows 75 per cent of people agree it makes children and young people vulnerable to requests to share intimate images and videos.

The statistics also highlight the majority of the public believes pornography is contributing to violence against women and girls.

CEO of Women’s Aid Sarah Benson says pornography can change how men view women.

‘ In pornography, women are invariably displayed in degrading often violent and coercive situations that can often be described as dehumanising and unfortunately that is playing out then in terms of sexuality  education and development , expectations , sexuality stereotypes, so we see pornography as actually contributing to all of these in a really negative way. ‘
