Study Links Internet Porn Use to Child Abuse

 

A study of men charged with Internet child pornography offenses shows that the men also have committed hands-on sex offenses against children.

The vast majority of the 155 men convicted of possessing, receiving, or distributing Internet-based child pornography, 85%, admitted they had sexually assaulted a child at least once!

The study, by clinical psychologists Michael Bourke, Ph.D. and Andres Henrnadez, Psy.D., was published in the April JOURNAL OF FAMILY VIOLENCE (Vol. 24, No. 3).
