In conservative Protestant areas have discovered many young lovers porn

The American sociologist found that young people aged 13 to 20 years living in areas with a large proportion of the conservative religious population, often watching porn. However, a closer examination revealed that the likelihood of viewing pornography for a living in conservative Protestant area of a person increases if the person is not conservative. Article published in the journal Deviant Behavior.

In the context of pornography sociologists, psychologists and anthropologists study how models affect people and Vice versa, which determines the interest in viewing them. For example, in a studyconducted in 2009, watching porn is associated with the traditional perception of gender roles. At the same time, work 2010 showedthat interest in porn lead to more uninhibited sexual behaviour.

Some people (in particular — deeply religious) their attitude to pornography is formed on the basis of religious views. The perception of sexual life among different teachings at different times has varied, but in General, for Protestant Christians characterized by the idea of modesty and moderation as the good and abhorrence of debauchery. Most conservative preachers (Protestants there is no single doctrine) insist that viewing explicit materials is a sin and harms of morality.

From this it follows intuitively that the more conservative religious direction adopted by the society, the less popular it must be pornography. Fanhao Or (Fanhao Nie) of Valdosta University in Georgia decided to check this assumption, which took several data sets. The author used the results of the national study of youth and religion, conducted in 2005. He took the data on two waves of the survey 3370 people, which twice in 13 to 17 and 16 to 20 years, respondents described the attitude towards religion, frequency of prayer, frequency of reading religious texts and other aspects of your life, including pornography. To assess the religious situation in the place of residence of the respondents, the scientist took the census 2000, and analysis made in 2012. Comparing the place of residence of people from the first research and data on religion in each district according to the census, the researcher calculated the correlation.

As a result, he found that the higher proportion of conservative population in the area, the higher the chances that the resident watching porn (p < 0.05). The correlation persists if we compare the chances between equal participants of the survey: diligent students with diligent students, children from wealthy families with affluent and so on.

From the editor

The conclusions of this article come from the sample 6740 people. This is not entirely true. Really 3370 were interviewed in person, but twice, at different ages.
