I think that we need more information about the study to see what the control group was, what the variables were, and the types of porn clips that were used. I say this because if they used ones that portrayed women in a more positive light it would influence the way the viewers perceived women.


Obviously the study wasn't conducted by guys in white coats showing test subjects porn clips and then asking them if they think the porn stars are whores... oh my god haha.

It took about 2 minutes to find the information, Nymph... With very basic researching skills.

Data Source.
The data for this study were drawn from the GSS (Smith et al., 2011), a large-scale, random-probability, personal interview survey that has been conducted in the United States every one to two years since 1973. Since 1975, each residence in the United States has had an equal probability of being sampled, with adults within each household also having an equal probability of being interviewed. The interviews were typically conducted face-to-face, though phone interviews were employed when participants were unable to meet in person. In an effort to reduce participant fatigue while still including a large number of questions, the GSS has contained a set of core questions that were asked of everyone surveyed, but has also contained other questions that were asked of only a portion of parti-cipants or were asked only in certain years. Since 1973, the GSS has had a reasonable response rate, ranging from 82% in 1993 to 70% in 2000. The data used in this study were collected between 1975 and 2010.

Across all of the survey years used in the current study, 10,946 American males and 14,101 American females responded to questions concerning pornography use in addition to questions concerning at least one of the following sets of measures: feminist identification; attitudes toward women in positions of power; attitudes toward women working outside the home; attitudes toward abortion; and attitudes toward the traditional family. Of the total available participants, most were married (53.94%; n¼13,511), White (82.58%; n¼ 20,683), female (56.30%; n¼14,101), politically moder-ate (38.90%;n¼9,001), Protestant (60.58%;n¼15,124), and had a mean age of 45.37 (SD¼17.59) years. Further demographic information can be found in Table 1. The actual number of participants used in each analysis differed for each dependent variable that was examined, as noted in the following section.

Pornography Use.
Pornography use was assessed by asking participants if they had viewed an X-rated film in the preceding year. Response categories were dichot-omous (Yes=No). Across the entire sample of available participants, 22.82% (n¼5,715) of participants indi-cated that they had viewed a pornographic movie within the past year. Recently published research using these data suggests that the prevalence of pornography use has increased slightly since in the 1970s, and individual-level analyses have indicated that pornography use within this data set is correlated with being younger, less religious, non-White, and holding more liberal attitudes toward sexuality within both men and women (Wright, 2013; Wright, Bae, & Funk, 2013). In recent years, the GSS has included a frequency measure of online pornography use over the past 30 days. Unfortunately, this item has not been asked of participants who responded to items about nonegalitar-ian beliefs and attitudes, precluding its use in the current study. Surveys conducted in 2000 and 2002 asked a subset of participants to respond to both metrics of pornography use. Of the participants who indicated that they hadnot viewed an X-rated film in the previous year, only 6.89% (n¼21) in 2000, and 7.14% (n¼10) in 2002, indicated that they had accessed a pornographic Web site in the previous 30 days.

Feminist identification.
Feminist identification was assessed with a single item that asked participants, ‘‘Do you think of yourself as a feminist or not?’’ Response options included Yes, a feminist; Don’t know; and No, not a feminist. To clarify the interpretation, Don’t know responses were dropped from the analysis presented in this section, as only 46 participants selected this option.3 Data were available only for survey year 1996

Women holding positions of power.
Attitudes toward women holding positions of political power were assessed with three items: ‘‘Do you agree or disagree with this statement: Women should take care of running their homes and leave running the country up to men’’; ‘‘If your party nominated a woman for president, would you vote for her if she were qualified for the job?’’; and ‘‘Tell me if you agree or disagree with this statement: Most men are better suited emotionally for politics than are most women.’’ All items had three response options, eitherAgree=Not sure=Disagree orYes=Don’t know=No. Responses to these scales were averaged, with reverse-coding where appropriate, to form an aggregate variable that could range from 1 (indicating a positive view toward women in politics) to 3 (indicating a negative view toward women in politics) (M¼1.49; SD¼0.65; Cronbach’s a¼.70). Analyses concerning attitudes toward women holding positions of power were restricted to the survey years 1975, 1978, 1983, 1986, and 1988 through 1998

Working outside the home.
Attitudes toward women working outside the home were assessed with seven items using 5-point Likert scales that ranged from 1(Strongly agree)to5(Strongly disagree). Example items included: ‘‘All in all, family life suffers when the woman has a full-time job’’; ‘‘A woman and her family will all be happier if she goes out to work’’; and ‘‘Both the husband and the wife should contribute to the household income.’’ Responses to these seven items were reverse-coded where appropriate, and averaged to create an aggregate variable that could range from 1 (indicating a positive attitude toward women working outside the home) to 5 (indicating a negative attitude toward women working outside the home) (M¼2.85; SD¼0.70; Cronbach’s a¼.70). Analyses concerning attitudes toward women working outside thehomewererestrictedtothesurveyyears1988, 1994, and 2002

Attitudes toward abortion were assessed with three items. These items asked participants if they thought that it should be possible for a woman to obtain a legal abortion under different circumstances, including pregnancy as a result of rape, pregnancy when the woman is unmarried and does not want to marry, and abortion if the woman wants one for any reason. Response options included Yes, I don’t know, and No. Responses to these scales were averaged to create an aggregate variable that could range from 1 (indicating strong support for abortion) to 3 (indicating no support for abortion) (M¼1.90;SD¼0.76; Cronbach’sa¼.78). Analyses concerning attitudes toward abortion were restricted to the survey years 1978, 1980, 1983, 1984, and 1987 through 2010

Traditional family.
Attitudes toward the traditional family were investigated with 10 items that assessed the extent to which participants believed the institution of the traditional family either benefited or hindered its members. To this end, participants were first provided with the following definition of the traditional family: ‘‘In many married couples, women take the main responsibility for the care of the home and children, while men take the main responsibility for supporting the family financially.’’ Participants were first asked whether men, women, children, everyone, or no one benefited from this arrangement. They were then subse-quently asked if the same five groups were hurt by this arrangement. Response options to these 10 items included Yes, I don’t know,andNo. Responses to these 10 items were averaged, using reverse-coding where appropriate, to create an aggregate variable that could range from 1 (indicating a negative attitude toward the traditional family) to 3 (indicating a positive attitude toward the traditional family) (M¼2.3; SD¼0.45; Cronbach’sa¼.71). Analyses concerning attitudes toward the traditional family were restricted to the survey year 1996

This makes me feel like this study is pretty bogus... Would you like me to find the Data Analysis method used for you too?

I think porn degrades women, plus it sets a standard most women can't meet. These plastic porn stars that are grinning from ear to ear while being pounded with cocks the size of baseball bats is not real. Treat a woman as a porn actress and don't expect a relationship.

I think porn is a healthy thing for many reasons... But like you, when I think of the negative aspects of it, I think of the way it warps the minds of the inexperienced. There are young women now who are scared of sex and young men who would rather watch porn than have actual sex. The expectations it creates are ridiculous. To people who didn't grow up with the Internet the way modern day teens did it may be hard to understand. Teens are exposed to some of the most ridiculous sex acts ever now. A lot of them are totally desensitized. They are watching this shit everyday from very early ages. Preteen ages. When a lot of us were growing up we'd look at a magazine we found somewhere or an old tape in our dad's closet or something like that. It would spark curiosity but it was nothing like the endless porn kids watch today. I've read things written by prostitues and heard it on interviews with them who talk about young clients who have a hard time finishing or even getting started. Young clients who need porn playing in the background. Young clients who just can't cum unless they jerk themselves off. Porn addiction will actually change the chemistry of the brain in a similar way that drugs and alcohol does.

Haha Jesus fucking Christ, sensitive much?

Okay not in the most explicit way but I did raise the point about a lot of people seemingly jumping to conclusions about porn damaging boys' perceptions of girls without any real basis other than assumptions. "It can be sexually aggressive so it's bound to be detrimental."

I took leaving a link and a brief comment to be a "do you agree? Discuss?" Thought some sex research would be an interesting prompt for discussion in its own in this place.

Nobody's crying but it sure seems like someone's about to have an aneurysm. Chill the fuck out, man. No need to be personally insulting.

Oh boohoo someone insulted you on the Internet. What I find the most funny is that you went back to change what you originally posted to be more like what Buz, Dani, and I said. You changed it to make it seem like you too question the accuracy of the findings which makes me wonder what the point of posting the article was if you think it's bogus...unless you just changed your mind after you got a few replies.

Your attempt at intellectualism is a joke.

Your thread is a joke.

And you're a joke.

Maybe wrong place to post an article where a reputable researcher is talking in a perfectly scientific way about their perfectly reasonable study and acknowledging their own biases and highlighting them as interesting points for future discussion and as potential flaws in their own study... I mean if people are just going to say what the researcher themself said in the damned article...

Well then maybe you should learn how to create a proper discussion thread instead of acting like a bitch when you don't get the replies you were looking for. Instead of pouting, grabbing your toys and going home you can summarize the article more clearly, to the point of not needing the article as anything more than a source for your thread. You can ask some questions of the thread readers to stimulate conversation as well. It goes, summary then points of interests then some further questions. You will find that threads you create will have many more responses when done properly instead of just posting a link with some vague commentary after it. If you still think the thread needs further intellectual stimulation you can quote people and ask further questions or just post more questions of your own. It's your own fault that your thread sucks. Anybody can start a thread like you did... Anybody can cry about it when it doesn't turn into a stimulating discussion. Don't be a bitch about it. That's it.

I'm neither agreeing or disagreeing with the study but I would imagine that 99% of men with access to a computer watch porn. What I am getting at is, how did they get their data? If it's a survey or done at a college I would also imagine that those who participated are more enlightened than the common man. I mean just to be willing to participate in a study like this would make me feel the participants felt like they had nothing to hide or maybe even something to prove. Not sure if that makes sense but I think a study like this has way too many variables to be accurate.

Topic Romance stories...
Posted 29 Sep 2015 14:29

No, it won't. As long as you convey some real emotion between the characters before, during and after the sex it will stay very much romantic. I wrote a story where the male character initiates the sex by choking the female character before continuing to rough anal sex. The comments I received for this story were variations of, "this was unexpectedly romantic"... "I had an awww moment" ... "They longed for each other" etc. As long as the hardcore action makes sense between your characters and the world you create it shouldn't diminish the romantic aspects at all. It might even elevate the romance.

Who in the fuck asked you? Don't like my opinions? Then USE 'EM FOR SUPPOSITORIES you sorry anally enchanted nimrod. Those women you speak of in WW II were doing NON COMBAT jobs to free up men to do the fighting. Your WEAK ATTEMPT at logic and reason is once again a FAIL! Now try for once to focus your tiny attention span on the ACTUAL OP rather than finding yet one more reason to be a pain in my ass. I don't CARE HOW MUCH you WANT IT you'll NEVER get it! SUFFER BITCH!

Do you think I care if you asked me or not? Assume that whenever you post your idiotic sexist opinions, that you are asking me because I will remind you how stupid you are every time. Every single time weavindreams.

Factory work was not traditionally something women did. What world are you living in? Because those women were given the chance to step up and step into roles that were not traditionally filled by women we were able to win the war. It was our industrialism that won that war because our tanks weren't as strong as the german tanks and our planes weren't as fast as the japanese ones. But unlike them we were able to keep producing ours. British intelligence, soldiers, and our industrialism won that war... And guess what? Two out of those three things the Axis didn't have.

On a side note... The assumption that I want your ass is a very gay thought you are having.. Just strange that your mind goes there.

(NO, I'm NOT even slightly concerned with the feminist ergo PC train of thought on this. Mankind has developed as a species and certain traits have been predominantly distributed along gender lines. That fact among many others has contributed to not only our survival but our thriving as a species.)

Feminism is not some politically correct notion. Yeah, mankind has developed (evolved) as a species. Back in your times, men would bonk women over the head and claim them like property. As centuries went by we evolved out of that. In several hundred more years thinking like yours, might even be nonexistent. To choose an example your narrow minded military fellating brain might understand... WW2 historians credit american women for being one of the essential factors for us being on the winning side of that war. Those women were certainly not sticking to "traits that have been distributed along gender lines". The countries that treat their women the most equal to men are the countries that have the best quality of life in the world.

Step away from your computer and go put your head back up your filthy ass.

Another girl butting in here! Sorry! Couldn't his motives just be that he's a talker and strikes up a conversation with the first person he sees, even in the shower room, without a thought about sexual implications? I'm noticing a pattern here, where all the guys are territorial and defensive, while the girls see no suspicious intent. When I was in college, I lived in an older dorm that had open showers, and girls just line up next to each other and start talking! I'm not straight, but even straight girls did this without worrying about whether the girl next to her was bi or lesbian. The other thing I noticed, is how guys seem to be so averse to the prospect of being hit on by other guys. We girls have to deal with getting hit on all the time by people we have absolutely no interest in! We're used to it! If I'm on a lounge chair at the beach, and there are 50 other empty lounge chairs, half the time the first guy to come along is going to grab the chair next to me, and start flirting. More than half the time it'll be some ugly jerk I don't want bugging me, but until he gets obnoxious, I try to be nice anyway. Why are guys so afraid of the prospect of the guy next to him being gay? Get USED to being treated as a sexual object, so you know how WE feel!

Lol please... It's annoying when women do it too. You think men can't handle rejection? You should see how women act when they flirt with a guy who isn't in the mood or not attracted to them. Sorry but not every guy will fuck anything that moves. Women get defensive and call men gay more than other men do.

The reason I wouldn't shower in a public setting is of the gross factor. I think of all those germs and other people's grossness. Just ew. I'd rather shower, that's all.

Yeah well going to the gym and then getting into your car dripping with sweat everyday is gross... Your car would start to stink pretty quickly. A quality gym will have towel service and very clean showers. I'm not talking about 24 hour fitness or something like that.

Women think differently than men. Most of them aren't creeps like men are.

Men are aware of what fucking creeps we are so we don't like it when another dude decides to piss right next to us in an empty bathroom. We don't like it when there is an entire empty park and some dude decides he needs to sit on the same damn bench. We don't like it when a guy needs to stand right next to us and use the same pole to hold himself up in an empty subway car. And we especially don't like it when we are trying to wash our balls in peace and some guy decides to use the shower right next to us when it is totally not necessary. It's an aggressive act. If I wanted to start a fight with a guy I would do something like that actually. It's irritating.

Not really. I wouldn't be paying attention to anyone else in a public shower. Not that I'd ever shower in a public showering. I'd rather do it at home, but that is just me.

Sorry poppet but that doesn't make much sense. If you wouldn't pay much attention in a public shower then why the hang up about being in one. Big empty shower and a guy choosing to shower right next to you would definitely get your guard up. Wether gaying off is the intent or not (if you were a guy), it's a very strange thing to do and experience regardless.

I'm sure that was the last thing on his mind. He simply wanted to shower... like you wanted. The reason he showered near you? Who knows. Does it matter? Is it that big of a deal? No. Men all have the same items, gay, straight or bi. Even if he was on the off chance of being gay, it doesn't mean he wanted you. Just because someone is gay, doesn't mean they want all men. As a straight male, do you want EVERY woman? I'm going to assume no. That you, like a gay man, has tastes and what he finds attractive. I would try to calm down on worrying about silly things. It was just a shower.

If you were in a unisex shower room and there are 9 empty shower heads and some dude came in and decided to shower right next to you, you wouldn't think that was weird?
