THIS Type Of Porn Is The Most Horribly Misogynistic, Says Study

Sex, Self

New research has found how women are treated differently in porn.

A new study published in Journal of Sex Research involves a content analysis of 100 of the most popular videos from each of the four of the world's most popular porn sites. Only the first scene of each video was analyzed, and the findings showed that women are definitely not portrayed as equals in adult films.

The results showed that women were more likely to be portrayed as sex objects than men. This means more close-up body shot and more sex acts that were aimed to please the male actor. But they were just as likely to initiate sex as men.

So what is the power play when it comes to porn?

Pretty much what you'd expect it to be. Men and women were equals socially and professionally only 1/3 of the time. Half the videos also showed a gender difference when it comes to sexual dominance. Men were more likely to have the dominant role while women were sexually submissive. This includes women more likely to be the recipient of spanking and gagging. The researchers also noted that it was rare to see women responding negatively to these acts.

So what kind of porn is the worst when it comes to how it portrays gender? Shockingly, when you leave it to the amateurs things get VERY misogynistic!

The study found amateur porn contained more gender inequality than porn that is produced from the industry. Women tend to initiate sex less, they're less likely to have sex to be pleased, they're more sexually submissive, and they're more manipulated into having sex.

That's strange since we typically blame the media as being the cause of all the sexism towards women. It looks like viewers (who like to shoot their own home movies anyway) are a big part of the problem!
