KEY FINDINGS
  • This nationally representative survey found that 1 in 4 18-24 year-olds surveyed identified pornography as the most helpful source for learning about how to have sex. Additionally, this study found that adolescents who had healthy discussions with parents about sex were less likely to report that pornography was a helpful source of information about sex.
