College women’s exposure to pornography is growing nationwide. A limited amount of re-search exists documenting the negative effects of pornography on women’s attitudes and be-havior related to sexual assault. The present study surveyed sorority members at a Midwest-ern public university on their pornography use, rape myth acceptance, bystander efcacy,and bystander willingness to help in potential sexual assault situations. Results showed thatwomen who view pornography are signicantly less likely to intervene as a bystander and are more likely to believe rape myths.
