Watching Porn Is Good For Gender Equality! So Queue Up That BBW Milf Clip You’ve Been Saving For A Rainy Day!

By 10.01.15

A new study suggests that men who watch pornography have more egalitarian attitudes towards women than men who don’t watch pornography. What’s that mean exactly? Well, correlation doesn’t equal causation, but the findings in this new study published in the The Journal of Sex Research suggests that men who watch pornography on the regular think more highly of women than men who don’t watch porn. And I don’t want to jump the gun here, but I’m pretty sure this new study gives every man alive complete carte blanche to watch as much pornography as he wants (whenever he wants). Because with every BBW Milf clip you watch you are in fact making yourself into a better man, because those clips are transforming your world view into one that thinks more highly of women.

One of the authors of the study, Taylor Kohut, did a Q&A on ResearchGate.net about just what this study means for society and I’ve pulled some choice excerpts for you bros and included them below:


RG: Your hypothesis was that porn watchers weren’t into gender equality. What did you find out?

TK: You’re right, according to radical feminist theory, pornography users should hold more gender non-egalitarian attitudes than non-users of pornography. We tested this basic hypothesis across five variables pulled from American General Social Survey data and did not find any supportive evidence. In fact, pornography users were more supportive of women in politics, more supportive of women working outside the home, and more supportive of women’s access to abortion, than were non-users of pornography.


RG: Who watches porn, and who doesn’t? Do you think the people in your sample could have been scared to admit watching porn?

TK: That’s a tricky question. Research estimates have suggested that between 25-95% of men and 2-85% of women use pornography. So, depending on how we ask the question and who we ask it to, studies have indicated that virtually everyone, or almost no one uses it. With that in mind, there are some fairly consistent patterns that keep cropping up: men are more likely to use pornography than women and tend to use it more frequently; younger people are more likely to use pornography than older people; and people with more conservative social values tend to avoid it when possible. Are people generally unwilling to admit to porn use? Certainly some people are going to lie about, though the high figures reported in some studies suggest that lying is probably not widespread (or that people lie in both directions).
