Pornography: Research Advances and Policy Considerations

By Dolf Zillmann; Jennings Bryant | Go to book overview

of media that include pornographic material has grown, and many new media that offer pornographic content have not been systematically analyzed. Researchers have shown more interest in studying the impact of pornography than in analyzing its contents. Many investigators of pornography's social and psychological impacts seem to assume that everyone knows what consumers of pornography are consuming. In most instances, that assumption is somewhat premature.
