The Consequential Pleasures of Pornography

Decent Essays
The first central question investigated in this study is focused on how the male's rate and intensity of porn consumption in a relationship, has a negative correlation with the self-esteem of the women and their perception on relationship quality, and sexual satisfaction. The second central question investigated in this study questions whether the women's self-esteem can reveal a connection between the male's rate and intensity of porn consumption with the relationship quality and sexual satisfaction in the relationship. The third question is similar to the latter question where the length of the relationship is the factor reveal the connection between the male's rate and intensity of porn consumption with the relationship quality and sexual satisfaction in the relationship. The method of this study is an online survey of 308 participants, that was the final amount after the original sample of 330 that was reduced because of participants' failure to meet the validity check. The final sample consisted of female college students in the age range of 18 to 29 years. Stewart and Szymanski suggest that this is the ideal population for the study because this is when people are exploring their sexuality and have more access to doing so in the college environment due to the absence of parental restrictions. However, the survey itself can create a response bias because there are students who are only doing this for a school credit or the chance to win a $100 raffle prize. Stewart
