Due to Covid-19 male youth spend an increasing amount of time in the internet, including legal porn sites with violent content and degrating sexual prectices against females. These images have an increased influence on their own perception of sexuality and the view of women. Girls are exposed to sexual degrading language and strong expectations how to look and what is considered to be sexy, suggesting how they have to dress to be sexually attractive.
