A SURVEY IN the UK has found that the vast majority of adults think that dealing with pornography and sexting should be an integral part of sex education.

The survey comes following research in the UK which found that 13% of 11-to 16-year-olds reported having taken topless pictures of themselves.

It’s argued that greater education would help young people deal with the availability of sexual imagery.

Today’s poll, Should sex education deal with sexting and pornography? 

Poll Results:

Yes to both (10015)
No, neither (502)
Sexting yes (330)
Pornography yes (225)
