London: Internet porn has been available to millions of viewers on a daily basis on almost every corner of the world and while pornographic websites are starting to give sex education, the adverse effects of porn on sex life of men, to the extent of causing erectile issues, have also been documented.

But a shocking effect of online pornography has been revealed in a case from the UK involving an 11-year-old rapist who has admitted to attacking seven boys under the age of 13. He told the court that it was watching too much internet porn that pushed him towards sexual assault of the children.

 

The boy’s mother also said that she gave birth to him as a teenager and had a hard time parenting. It was also mentioned that the boy has been diagnosed for ADHD and the court gave him a referral order considering his age at the time of offences.

This grim case stands testimony of the psychological effect that easy and unrestricted access to pornography for almost anyone can have on children, and comes at a time when UK is gearing up to place regulations that prevent access to porn for children.
