          Objective To explore the association between mothers’ reactions to adolescents’ exposure to intimate shots and pornography use of junior high school students, and to provide references for family communications on sexual topics in similar scenarios.

          Methods A total of 1 760 students from grade 6 to 8 in three junior high schools in a certain district of Shanghai were selected by cluster sampling. Self-filled questionnaires on tablets were used to collect data.

          Results The proportion of junior high school students who watched pornography was 26.36% (464), and that of boys (29.83%, 270/905) was higher than of girls (22.69%, 194/855). Most junior high school students believed that mothers’ reactions to adolescents’ exposure to intimate shots would be “taking the opportunity to educate teenagers not to do this” (30.54%) or “avoiding adolescents watching intimate shots” (42.24%). The results of multivariable analysis showed that comparing with junior high school students who believed that mothers would “watch together without making any comments”, students who believed that mothers would “take the opportunity to educate teenagers not to do this” ( OR=0.43, 95% CI=0.29–0.64) and “avoid adolescents watching intimate shots” ( OR=0.56, 95% CI=0.39–0.80) were at lower risk of viewing pornography ( P<0.01).

          Conclusion There is a significant correlation between junior high school students’ pornography use and mothers’ possible reactions to adolescents’ exposure to intimate shots. Family sex education and parental monitoring should be emphasized, and parents’ awareness of communicating sexual issues with adolescents should be strengthened.


          【摘要】 目的 了解母亲对青少年暴露于亲密镜头的反应情况及其与初中生观看色情片的关联, 以期为类似场景的家庭 性话题交流提供一定参考依据。 方法 整群抽取上海市某区 3 所初中六至八年级 1 760 名学生, 采用平板电脑自填问卷。 结果 初中生观看过色情片的报告率为 26.36% (464 名), 男生 (29.83%, 270/905) 高于女生 (22.69%, 194/855)。大多数 初中生认为母亲对青少年暴露于亲密镜头的反应为“借机教育青少年不能这么做” (30.54%) 和“避免青少年观看亲密镜 头” (42.24%)。多因素 Logistic 回归分析结果显示, 相较于认为母亲会“一起观看并不作任何评价”的初中生, 认为母亲会 “借机教育青少年不能这么做” ( OR=0.43, 95% CI=0.29〜0.64) 和“避免青少年观看亲密镜头” ( OR=0.56, 95% CI=0.39〜0.80) 者观看色情片的风险更低 ( P 值均<0.01)。 结论 初中生观看色情片与母亲对青少年暴露于亲密镜头的可能反应存 在关联。应重视家庭性教育和家长的监管作用, 加强家长与青少年进行性话题交流的意识。
