New Zealand’s first pornography report finds ‘problematic’ amount of coercion

More than a third of all pornography watched in New Zealand depicts non-consensual sexual activity, a study by the chief censor has found, in the first report of its kind into the country’s sexual viewing habits.

Government’s chief censor says storylines featuring male persistence would be adopted by younger viewers in their own sex lives.

Women’s groups in New Zealand say that extreme sexual acts are increasingly being viewed as normal by young people, mostly due to their popularity and prevalence in pornography.

Affectionate acts between partners was present in only about a quarter of the clips studied, and only 3% featured the use of a condom.
