Publication: The Witherspoon Institute
Author: Peter J. Smyczek, Kenneth Artz
If our military is to lower its rate of sex crimes, it must limit its members’ consumption of pornography and educate them about its risks. To extract itself from this sexual assault wash cycle, the Air Force, in which we serve, along with other branches of the military, must take swift action to recognize many […]

Title: Women's evaluations of and affective reactions to mainstream violent pornography, nonviolent pornography, and erotica
Publication: Department of Psychology at Scholarship at UWindsor
Author: Charlene Senn - University of Windsor, Lorraine Radtke - University of Calgary
ABSTRACT: Women’s reactions to three types of sexually explicit materials were examined. Ninety-six female undergraduates completed questionnaires measuring previous exposure to pornography, past history of coercive sexual experiences, attitudes toward feminism, hostility toward men, adversarial sexual beliefs, and rape myth acceptance. They were then randomly assigned to one of four conditions: (a) erotica, (b) nonviolent […]

This study used an experimental paradigm to examine the effects of a moderate alcohol dose and alcohol expectancies on women’s acute reactions to a violent pornographic stimulus. A community sample of female social drinkers (N = 134) read an eroticized rape depiction after […]
Repeated Exposure to Violent and Nonviolent Pornography: Likelihood of Raping Ratings and Laboratory Aggression Against Women (Research)
Title: Repeated Exposure to Violent and Nonviolent Pornography: Likelihood of Raping Ratings and Laboratory Aggression Against Women
Publication: Aggressive Behavior (Vol. 12, Iss. 2)
Author: Neil M. Malamuth, Joseph Ceniti
This study examined the relatively long-term effects of repeated exposure to violent and nonviolent pornography on males’ laboratory aggression against women. Self-reported likelihood of raping was also assessed as an individual differences variable that might mediate susceptibility to the effects of pornography and to ascertain whether it predicted actual aggressive behavior. Subjects were randomly assigned […]

But it wouldn’t be surprising if somebody’s mom is telling her son that right now — with good reason, if […]

But new research finds that looking at erotic movies can actually quiet the part of the brain that processes visual stimuli. Most of the time, watching movies or conducting any other visual task sends […]

Porn is becoming a new ideal and value for young girls. And women are responsible.
Women are consuming and endorsing porn such as ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ — a book recognized as ‘mommy porn.’ Poorly written, it is not a how-to-manual and it’s not poetic erotica.
Pulp/romance novels transformed into a new genre embracing porn as literature – explicitly sexual scenes featuring bondage/discipline, dominance/submission and sadism/masochism.
More than 20 million copies have sold in the US (40 million worldwide), and it is yet another example of the way porn is becoming more than socially acceptable amongst women. Moreover, it is becoming an aspirational target for women.
