Researchers suggest link between Internet pornography and sex offences

Recent research has pointed to a “causal link” between the rise of deviant pornographic images on the net and sexual offences committed in the real world.

So claims an article in the Telegraph which cites Dr Tim Jones, a Senior Lecturer in Cognitive Psychology at Worcester University and “other psychologists” (including Britain’s leading criminologist Professor David Wilson).

They’re saying that the continued rise in the volume of extreme explicit material on the net has allowed like-minded individuals to share their thoughts online and make them seem more normalised.

Dr Jones reaches the conclusion that: “The internet is fuelling more extreme fantasies and the danger is that they could be played out in real life”.

    Events qualified with the weasel-word ‘may’ are speculation, not news, no matter how often they might appear in The Torygraph or this website.
