A majority of Irish citizens believe pornography is causing serious harm to society – with 81pc of young people believing it leads to more demands for violent sex, a new study from Women’s Aid reveals.

The study entitled “Time to Talk About Porn” released today includes statistics from a recent RedC poll which reveals that a majority of Irish citizens polled believe porn is linked to gender inequality, unrealistic sexual expectations, sexism and normalisation of requests for sexual images as well as coercion and violence against women and girls.
