Challenges to ban child pornography

  • The effect of pornography is different in children belonging to the lower class compared to children belonging to the high class. A single approach won’t be able to handle the issue effectively.
  • Lack of sex education courses and workshops in the school curriculum.
  • In India, sex is seen as negative (something which should be hidden). There is no healthy family dialogue regarding sex. It leads the child to learn this from outside which led to an addiction to pornography.
  • It’s very difficult for agencies to detect the activities of child pornography and monitor them effectively.
  • Availability of obscene content on regular websites and OTT (over the top) services make it difficult to differentiate between the non-vulgar content and vulgar content.
