from www.thecourier.co.uk – Sandy Brindley, national coordinator of Rape Crisis Scotland, said the instant availability of degrading pornography online has created ”a timebomb waiting to explode”.

She was speaking after a survey of 500 teachers revealed more than a third (36.7%) believe the majority of their pupils regularly view hardcore pornography, while three-quarters believe it is harming their pupils’ development.

Ms Brindley said pornography is teaching young men to associate arousal with the humiliation of women.

”It is not depicting a healthy sexual relationship — it’s depicting violences and humiliation towards women,” she said.

She added there is already evidence the proliferation of pornography is leading to an increase in sexual violence by teenage boys.

Figures released in August revealed the number of boys under the age of 16 charged with sexual assault doubled from 71 to 142 in a year. There were also 58 boys charged with rape in 2011/12 — more than double the total the number just two years before.

”We are already seeing an increasing number of young men under 16 charged with rape and we think this is down to the message they are getting from pornography that there is a link between arousal and the humiliation of women,” said Ms Brindley. ”It’s like a timebomb waiting to explode.”

She added: ”I think it’s important to look at how we can support teachers and make sure there is a space for young people to be able to discuss what is a healthy sexual relationship.”

The survey of teachers, carried out by the Times Educational Supplement, also revealed teachers’ fears that children as young as 11 are becoming over-sexualised and are ”under pressure to perform sexual acts”.

One teacher said pupils were using derogatory sexual language and that watching pornography had led to ”awful” behaviour of boys towards young women.

Some told the poll that girls as young as 11 were dressing like ”inflatable plastic dolls” and described pupils who ”couldn’t get to sleep without watching porn”.

The poll found that the majority of teachers (67.3%) do not think that sex education has kept up with technological advances.

There were also concerns about pupils becoming obsessed with body image as more than half of respondents (55.8%) said they had taught pupils who wanted to undergo plastic surgery. There were reports of girls whose schoolwork was being affected by an obsession with make-up and tanning, and boys who were using protein shakes in the hope of getting a perfect body.
