Respected academics Clarissa Smith, Feona Attwood and Martin Barker have set up “to understand the patterns of use of porn by ordinary people”.

Their website is a call for contributions. “In the past, pornography has overwhelmingly been assumed to be a ‘problem’, and the only really important questions to ask about it are – how much do people (and especially children) encounter it, and how great is the ‘harm’ that it does?  This research is different.”

Dr Smith and Professor Attwood have acted as expert witnesses in several successful s63 cases instigated via Backlash. We encourage you to submit your insights to and ask others to do the same.
