By Dolf Zillmann; Jennings Bryant | Go to book overview
promotes men's belief of being capable of committing rape. This effect is pronounced for normal men manifesting some degree of psychoticism; it is negligible for men with minimal psychotic tendencies.
2. Habitual male consumers of common pornography appear to be at greater risk of becoming sexually callous and sexually violent toward women than occasional male consumers.
3. Prolonged consumption of nonviolent and violent soft-core pornography has not been found to facilitate men's retaliatory aggression against women.
