3 Young people’s experiences of inappropriate content 10 year old girl: “Some of the pictures, on images, are very haunting, scary or rude pictures in wrong categories.” 12 year old girl: “Seeing things that are inappropriate or scary by mistake, such as watching a mislabelled YouTube video.” 14 year old girl: “when your on a movie site and porn pops up AWKWARD”

4 Role of parents and carers “When I was 5 I had a friends’ older brother show me and my friend porn. That’s how I learned about sex, as my mum had to talk to me about it at age 5 and be like, “what you saw was this”... I don’t think it was a scarring experience at all but I think it was how she talked to me about it after that made it okay.” “If you don’t provide the answers at home, children will search to find the answers elsewhere. Children are curious and it’s important for them to learn. And frankly, porn is a widely available resource for them to see some sex if you don’t know anything about it.” “I think one thing you can start off at the beginning is to start pointing out the things you would point out in porn but in everyday life, as this whole world is kind of pornographic in a lot of ways. You see in advertisements all the time, women in lingerie, that you can easily talk about like – “You know, women don’t really look like that” - Young ambassadors from Brook
