University of New Hampshire researchers found that 42 percent of Internet users between 10-17 years old said they've seen online porn in a recent 12-month span.
Of those, 66% said they did not want to view the images and had not sought them out. The researchers' conclusions appear in the February issue of the journal Pediatrics, due out today.

Pornography was defined in the study as images of naked people or people having sex.
