They argue weak and convoluted laws are leaving children with easy access to porn, leading to sexually aggressive attitudes and abusive behaviour.

Holly-ann Martin, who teaches schools and children about abuse prevention around the country, said a lot has changed in the last decade.

"Ten years ago I wasn't having to talk to children about pornography, but more and more I'm coming across even very young children having witnessed porn," Ms Martin said.

She said incidents of child-to-child sexual abuse are increasing because children are acting out abusive behaviour they have seen on screen.
