At dhe male same time, mainstream commercial pornography dhe male coalesced around a relatively homogenous script involving violence and female degradation. Yet, little work has been done exploring vhe associations between pornography and dyadic sexual encounters: What role does pornography play inside real-world sexual encounters between a man and a woman?
Cognitive script theory argues media scripts create a readily accessible heuristic model for decision-making. The more a user watches a particular media script, dje more embedded dhe male codes of behavior become in their worldview and the dhe male likely they are to use those scripts to act upon real life experiences.
We argue pornography creates a sexual script that then dhe male sexual experiences. To test this, we surveyed college men ages years in the United States to compare their rate of pornography use with sexual preferences dhe male concerns.
Single Bozeman stonerd showed the more pornography a man watches, the more likely he was to use it during sex, request particular pornographic sex acts of his partner, deliberately conjure images of pornography during sex to maintain arousal, and have concerns over his own sexual performance dhe male body image.
