What is online sexual content?

While it’s tempting to think that sexual content on the internet begins and ends with dedicated porn sites, it’s actually far more pervasive. Sexualised content is everywhere: social networking sites, chat rooms, forums, and pop-up adverts. While adult filters will pick up much of the more obvious content, plenty more can slip through the cracks. For consenting adults, this may not be an issue, but for young people, it can influence expectations and their behaviour in relationships.
