ABSTRACT
The article provides statistical information on the number of Internet users ranging from 10 to 17 years old who had been exposed to online pornography. Higher rates include unwanted exposure involving teenagers who had been harassed or sexually solicited online or interpersonally victimized offline and those who showed signs of depression. Furthermore, these children tended to be teenaged boys who download images using file-sharing programs and chat online to strangers about sex.
