In January 2024, CEASE commissioned More in Common to help us understand the British public’s attitudes towards pornography.

Twenty-one per cent of parents of 11-13 year olds have talked to their children about pornography, despite 13 being the average age at which a child first sees pornography.

The same polling found 0% of the UK public think it’s appropriate for children to see pornography at the age of 13 or under.

Parents were most likely to talk to their child about pornography when they were 14-15 years old, by which time two-thirds of children have already been exposed to pornography.

However, the burden of protecting children from the harms of online pornography must not lie solely with parents.
