Use of Porn among Québec Men

In her doctoral thesis, psychologist Anik Ferron tried to evaluate the influence of pornographic sites in the conjugal dynamic. Here are a few of her conclusions:

– Men have a net preference for more hard-core scenes detached from all emotion and sense of attachment;

– Most visual pornographic products are non-violent in nature and are more focused on vaginal and anal relations between men and women;

– About 10% to 15% of all pornography consumed includes violence, fetishism, bondage or sadomasochism.
