Young Girls Warned of Imitating New Sex Acts from Internet
Young girls, who have just touched puberty, are imitating sexual acts they see in internet pornography, believing they must be normal, a child psychologist has claimed. According to Dr Michael Carr-Gregg, many teenage girls had participated in group sex or anal sex - acts which they wouldn't have done without seeing it online.

"Girls have new sexual practices. We've found that when they view that stuff they feel compelled to copy it," quoted Dr Carr-Gregg, as saying.

"It's causing young women to do things they wouldn't have done but because it's online they think it's normal. We are talking about girls who have just come into puberty," he added. He cited a survey on cyber-bullying run through Girlfriend magazine, according to which 41 per cent had been asked to post a naked or semi-naked picture of themselves on the internet.

Calling the trend illegal, Dr Carr-Gregg said that such activities promoted, manufactured and distributed child pornography. "That's incredibly high, and it's against the law. If you take a picture and send it, you are manufacturing and distributing child pornography," he said.

"Kids don't understand the seriousness of what they are doing, or that whenever they send something to cyberspace, it can't be taken back," he added.
