15. Teen Pregnancies Have Plummeted, But School Sex Education Doesn’t Work—Huh? Conservatives credit abstinence-only school sex education.

Part 6 - What Everyone Should Know About Pornography

46. The Main Problem with Pornography: It Misleads Men About Themselves, Women, and Lovemaking It’s fine to enjoy pornography and self-sex to it. But leave it on your screen. For real-life sizzling sex, do the opposite of what you see in porn.  

47. The Deep Evolutionary Roots of Porn— And Another Art Form Many Women Love Porn reflects men’s evolutionary mission. Romance fiction reflects women’s. The two genres appear wildly different. Actually, they’re remarkably complementary. 

48. How Much of Porn Is Violent? Does Porn Contribute to Sexual Assault? Only 2 percent of porn is violent. It’s less violent than many TV shows, movies, and video games. Many people believe pornography contributes to sexual assault. If that’s true, then since 1996 when porn exploded on the internet, the rape rate should have soared. Actually, in the U.S. it’s decreased 58 percent, with similar declines in many other countries.   

49. Porn’s Impact on Adolescents Porn critics argue it promotes teen promiscuity and sexual irresponsibility. Actually, since porn flooded the internet, teens have become less sexually active, and if they are, more likely to use condoms. 

50. The Three Differences Between Women Porn Actors and Other Women Many believe that the women in pornography are disproportionately survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Actually, the best research shows this is not the case. But the women in porn and other women differ in three surprising ways. 

51. Men, Porn, and the Controversy Over “Sex Addiction” So-called “sex addicts” don’t watch any more pornography than other men. They just feel more distressed by it. Sex addiction is usually the result of upbringings that demonized masturbation, not the materials men use as visual aids while doing it. 

52. The Anguish Some Women Feel About Porn One-quarter of women feel dehumanized by porn. But 75 percent—three times as many— don’t. They may not love it, but they don’t consider porn a threat to their self-esteem or relationships.  

"Sizzling Sex for Life is the most practical, authoritative, and comprehensive sexuality guide ever written." —Eli Coleman, Ph.D., chair of the Human Sexuality Program, University of Minnesota, the nation’s largest sexuality training program.
