Study: Porn doesn't much affect sexual behavior.

I don't think anyone here is very surprised at something we already knew: Watching violent movies doesn't make us act violently, watching porn doesn't change our sexual behavior and playing Pac Man doesn't making us eat glowing dots and chase ghosts.

Watching porn may influence sexual behavior in young people, but not as much as some doctors and parents might have thought.

Researchers in the Netherlands determined that teens who use pornography are not significantly more likely to engage in risky sexual behaviors. However, they did find the amount of pornography young people watched was a significant contributor to differences in teen's sexual behaviors, but one of many factors that could influence their sex lives.

The study was published this week in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

"Pornography is not as big and bad a wolf as we thought it was, and maybe we should focus on other factors," study author Gert Martin Hald, a clinical psychologist at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, told HealthDay.
