Pornografic contents on internet and mobile phones: ineffectiveness of regulation

Education and Press
The article discusses the regulation of explicit pornographic contents on internet and mobile phones. In order to protect the children and adolescents, the regulation of explicit pornographic contents in Slovenia is still ineffective. The solution could be self-regulation with ethic code and code system followed by all operators. We found out that adolescents are conscious of the dangers and risks of internet, but the role of the school, parents and the legislation system seem to be important, too. Unfortunately there is no universal definition of the term pornography, in the social context it could be seen as dehumanization and exploitation of sex. Besides, the pornography is full of sexism, women are represented differently from men, mostly in the subordinated position.
