College Student Attitudes toward Pornography Use
O'Reilly, Sarah; Knox, David; Zusman, Marty E.
College Student Journal, v41 n2 p402-406 Jun 2007
Data from 305 confidential anonymous 50-item questionnaires on pornography were completed by students at East Carolina University and analyzed to provide the basis for this study. Over 90 percent (92.4%) reported ever having looked at pornography with over forty percent (43.1%) reporting doing so between one and two times a week. Significant gender differences included that men viewed pornography more than women, that men approved of pornography more than women, that women who viewed pornography were viewed as "loose," that women were more threatened by pornography than men and that women were more likely to agree that looking at pornography was OK if one was not fantasizing about others while doing so. Limitations and implications of the data are suggested.
