For control on pornography crime against children and adults, it is necessary to take an essential step, steps are followed:

  • It should be necessary that education about sex is made a part of the higher education syllabus.

It is considered as parental control and guidance will vary significant and useful for children they played a role like a teacher, guider and everything. Parents should all focus on their children’s guidance.
