    • What types of inappropriate material do young people encounter, and how do they come in contact with it?

    • What is the potential impact on children of viewing sexually explicit and other forms of inappropriate material in the media?

    • Is impact dependent only on the type of material or also on the source (e.g., static image on the Internet, picture from a magazine, active images from television)?

    • What are the limits of this research, and to what extent can we make comparisons among the effects of viewing different types of inappropriate material (e.g., sexually explicit vs. violent vs. hate speech)?
