Why does the ‘free’ internet pay for the likes of a porn website?

A new study has found that Australians spend about $1.5 billion a year on online porn, according to a study by a US internet research firm.

The study found that over the course of a year, Australians spend between $9 and $15 per internet user.

The majority of internet users in Australia, according the study, were between 18 and 29 years old.

According to the study by the University of New South Wales, the average porn user spends between $3.70 and $7.10 per month.

The average porn budget, the report said, was $10.70 per month or around $1,600 per year.

“Porn can be very lucrative,” Associate Professor Rob Smith, a co-author of the study and an associate professor at the University at Albany, said.

“It is certainly a high cost to the average Australian consumer.”

Professor Smith said porn sites were often “a great source of income for online users” but the research also showed that pornography was often “used to make money for criminals”.

“There is no question that the cost of producing and distributing these videos is high,” Professor Smith said.

“[Porn] is not just an entertainment service.

It is also an opportunity for individuals to earn money.”

He said it was “quite clear” that online pornography was a “gateway” to more serious, violent and illegal behaviour.

The report also found that, over the past five years, there had been a “sharp increase in sexual offences involving minors and teenage girls” and that “pornographic material is often used to make the sale of drugs”.

The study found “significant increases” in “online pornography use in recent years” and also “a rise in violent and other forms of crime”.

“[These] results highlight that young people, especially those of minority groups, are at heightened risk of becoming victims of online violence,” the report stated.

It found that “online activity, especially by young people and young people of low socio-economic status, can increase risks of self-harm, self-harvesting, homelessness and other harms, and that these risks may be exacerbated by the fact that youth are more likely to be victims of violence and crime”. 

The researchers also found “a growing number of young people are finding themselves vulnerable to cyberbullying, including stalking, online bullying and cyberstalking”.

Dr Smith said that online porn was “very much in the news” as a result of the rise in violence.

He also said that “the use of social media sites to access online pornography can be a dangerous, potentially dangerous and addictive activity”.

“If young people in particular are exposed to this material, then the result can be serious consequences for their health and wellbeing,” Dr Smith said, noting that “most young people don’t engage in these types of activities”.

Professor Steve O’Connor from the University’s Centre for Cyber Violence Research said the report highlighted the need to tackle the problem of online pornography.

Professor O’Connor said there were currently “no national measures” to address the issue of online porn and it was important for parents to “keep a close eye on their children”.

“It’s a very important issue that needs to be addressed because it’s not just about accessing pornography, but also accessing the wider economy,” he said.

“We know from other research that there are a lot of things that kids can do online that they shouldn’t be doing, and they shouldn.”

If we are serious about preventing and addressing online violence, we have to look at how we can protect kids from accessing this material.

“Mr Smith said the Australian Government needed to address online pornography, which had “potentially serious” implications for young people.

Dr O’Brien said he hoped the research would help to ensure that people “have the confidence and the support to deal with their problems online”.

A spokesman for the Australian Communications and Media Authority said the research “provides further evidence that Australians use the internet for a wide range of online activities”.”

While online activities such as searching for content on a website or accessing online services are not illegal, accessing pornography is and should be a matter for adults,” the spokesman said.
