Podcast Episode: Does Pornography Increase Sexual Violence?

Does what we watch have an impact on how we think? Or what we do?

Alarming research is showing that pornography can shape the user’s sexual template around themes of degradation, ambiguous consent, and violence. A meta-analysis of 46 studies reported that the effects of exposure to pornographic material are “clear and consistent,” and puts one at increased risk for committing sexual offenses and accepting rape myths.

Tune in to the latest episode of the “Sexploitation?” podcast to learn about the links between pornography and sexual violence.
