Abstract:

The study of pornography's potential influence on sexual aggression requires embedding this focus within a broader model that encompasses other relevant factors as well. This study tests a model of sexual aggression that incorporates general antisocial personality characteristics and factors specific to sexual aggression, such as sexual promiscuity, attitudes condoning violence against women and pornography consumption. Results generally indicate strong support for the hypothesized model. Regression analyses demonstrated that, as expected, hostility towards women and an impersonal orientation to sex interact to predict sexual aggression, and that pornography consumption augments this interaction. Structural equation analyses supported the hypothesis that general 'hostile' personality factors indirectly influence sexual aggression, and that this indirect relationship is mediated by hostility specifically directed at women. This research therefore successfully integrates factors common to sexual aggression research conducted in both the criminal and non-criminal populations, and models the role of pornography consumption within this broader integration.
