 UK Teens Surfing the Internet for Pornography a Record 87 Hours a Year
The average teen spends one hour and 40 minutes each week surfing the Internet for pornography, according to new UK research.

This mathematics equates to 87 hours a year spent surfing for porn.

A further hour and 35 minutes is spent looking at dieting and weight loss websites, the Daily Mail reported.

The study of 1,000 youngsters, which found the average teenager was online 31 hours each week looking at soft pornography, plastic surgery, dieting, family planning and emotional support, was conducted by CyberSentinel.

The alarming thing about this research is that it shows that teenagers are obviously exploring all sorts of topics as a result of modern-day pressures, the New York Daily News quoted Ellie Puddle, Marketing Director of CyberSentinel, as saying.

And for some reason they find it easier to go online to conduct their research than asking mum and dad for advice, she added.
