A survey by the Office of Film and Literature Censorship shows that film censorship in New Zealand is not working.
The survey has found that 9 out of 10 teenagers are watching movies and playing computer games before they are old enough.
The survey asked 507 people aged 16 to 18 for their views on the classification system with 89% percent saying that at some point they have consumed media they were too young for.
The study also found that young people want more information on censorship, and the content they are restricted from viewing.
Chief Censor, Dr Andrew Jack, said those who have younger family members are less likely to view explicit content.
He also said that young people want censor warnings on packaging to be more descriptive.
