Researchers seek your experience with porn

Do you read or watch porn? Researchers Feona Attwood, Martin Barker, and Clarissa Smith are looking for participants in an online questionnaire about your experiences with porn. Unlike most research into porn consumption -- which is often concerned with the potential negative effects of porn -- this project is focused on the actual people who use porn.

Our project is concerned with the everyday uses of pornography, and how the people who use it feel it fits into their lives. Pornography is of course a highly topical issue, subject to many opposing views and ‘strong opinions’. And we are not saying that there are no moral or political issues. But we are saying that the voices of users and enjoyers have been swamped. In fact, there is very little research that engages with the users of pornography, asking how, when and why they turn to it.

The questionnaire is a mixture of multiple choice and open questions. It will ask questions about what porn you watch, how you find it, what you like/dislike, and how your porn consumption influences your feelings about sexuality. The questionnaire should take about 20-30 minutes to complete, and responses will remain anonymous. Go fill it out!

  1. I don’t read a lot of porn (depending on definition), but I’ll be glad to do the survey.
