Online sexual abuse and harrassment were reported as a normal part of their day. The expectations of boys they knew were unrealistic and based on scenarios and porn actors seen online. Adolescent boys and teens from the same age bracket and older are demanding vaginal, anal and oral sex in exchange for open affection like kissing.

With the online availability of sex being ominipresent, with few affective prohibitive steps to keep it age protected actually working, the situation is becoming gradually worse and more prolific.

These are the words of Lucy, aged 15, one of 600 young Australian women and girls who took part in a just-released survey commissioned by Plan Australia and Our Watch. The survey, conducted by Ipsos, gathered responses from the girls and young women aged 15-19 in all states and territories.

In the survey report, entitled’Don’t Send Me That’ participants reported that online sexual abuse and harassment were becoming a normal part of their everyday interactions. And while the behaviour seemed so common, more than 80% said it was unacceptable for boyfriends to request naked images.

LYP says:

We are facing an unprecedented increase of sexual harassment in schools. Australia is not the only country unable to cope with the consequences of online pornography. Here in the United Kingdom a recent parliament committee report stated a third of girls are being sexually harassed in schools. The schools are not coping and are desperate for guidance and support. That is why LYP is providing prevention strategy tools to help schools and young people to fight the problem.
