ISHC Update: March 2018

Hello, hope you are all well.

Since the beginning of the collection of ISHC survey data, 10 years ago, we have asked questions of all students regarding how they spend their free time. We specifically ask, “On the most recent school day, in the hours you were not in class, how much time did you send watching pornography?” Our ISHC National Database (2014-16) of 23,445 students from 58 upper schools shows the following:

  • 20% (4,293) of them reported that they viewed pornography.
  • A little more than 1/2 of them viewed the sites for 1/2 hour.
  • The majority of pornography viewing was reported by boys (3,794) vs girls (461).
