People who watch more porn becomes more religious: Study

NEW YORK — Although watching porn is not in religious , a new study has claimed that watching adult video may really makes men and women more religious.

“As pornography viewing increases, people may find ways to rationalise their behavior or even turn to religion to try and overcome the behavior that is making them feel guilty,” study author Samuel Perry of the University of Oklahoma noted in a paper appeared in the Journal of Sex Research.

According to Perry, who is also an assistant professor of sociology and religious studies, exposure to pornography may inspire guilty feelings, especially if a person is violating the rules of their religion. Perry says this could be down to people compensating for guilty feelings with prayer.

Perry analysed data from more than 1,300 Americans over a six-year period to find out how watching pornography affects religious belief over time.

It found 39 per cent of American adults have viewed some sort of pornographic material in the past 12 months, with three times as men viewing racy material compared to women.

It also revealed women tend to be more religious than men on each dimension of religiosity, except for religious doubts.

Further analysis revealed the relationship between pornography and religious is complex.

While scholars typically assume that greater religiosity leads to less frequent pornography use none have empirically examined whether the reverse could be true, the authors noted.

“The findings suggest that viewing pornography may lead to declines in some dimensions of religiosity but at more extreme levels may actually stimulate, or at least be conducive to, greater religiosity along other dimensions,” Perry explained.
