COMMENT: We need a comprehensive national plan to address the harmful impacts that pornography can have upon young people.

I don't know if you've visited Pornhub.com recently. Given that New Zealand ranks 13th per head of capita in Pornhub's list of most porn-watching nations, I suspect some of you may have.

I have to confess that last week I was one of those Pornhub-visiting New Zealanders, as I visited the site to conduct some research for a talk I was giving on the impacts of pornography on young people. And yes, I was there for research, not "research".

And boy.
