I have often heard people say that pornography is a terrible thing, that damages to men and women, while stunting its users’ ability to develop healthy relationships.  Research put out by the University of Monteral found that this just doesn’t seem to be true.  Most men have consumed pornography and most men are not sexually violent, deviant or devaluing towards women.  If watching pornographic materials could make an individual deviant, watching a heterosexual movie could make a homosexual switch their orientation.  When researchers first started looking into the effect pornography had on male sexuality, they looked for men who hadn’t consumed any.  None could be found.  Maybe pornography isn’t that bad of a thing to consume.  What do you think?
