13-Year-Old Boy From Blackburn Pleads Guilty to Raping His Younger Sister After Seeing Porn on an X-box

A 13-year-old boy from Blackburn (UK) pleaded guilty to raping his younger sister after watching hardcore pornography on an Xbox, a computer games console.

The little girl is the victim of rape and is likely to suffer for it in the long term. What she had to go through is horrible and anyone will agree that it should never have happened.

And that raises a question: how could it happen?

We find that there are two victims in this situation, and many other cases like this.

The girl AND the boy are victims of a predatory industry that will not miss an opportunity to groom children into its next generation of customers. The average age of first exposure to online hardcore pornography is 11 years old. At such a young age, and still at thirteen, a child is forming what psychologists call their ‘sexual template’.

Stop Porn Culture approaches this from a public health position. Given the research, We think this is just the tip of the iceberg. There have been numerous incidents similar to this one recently. In November last year a 12-year-old boy admitted raping his younger sister after he had watched online pornography at school and went home to copy what he had seen. Cases like these will continue to repeat themselves and get worse unless we treat this as a public health emergency.
