Abstract:

The pornography industry remains fast growing and lucrative, producing 13,000 adult video titles every year with annual sales of 12 billion dollars. This current study analyzes the content of the most popular pornographic videos, with the objectives of updating its depictions of aggression, degradation and sexual practices and comparing its results to both previous content analysis studies and the survey reported in The Social Organization of Sexuality (1994). The authors argue for a sampling method that can collect videos that are representative of mainstream, popular pornography on a national level, and for a definition that can best capture the sexualized aggression portrayed in such pornography. The current study indicates an unequivocal rise of aggression in pornography in both verbal and physical forms, compared to previous studies. The majority of the perpetrators are males; females are almost always the victims and they most often show pleasure after being aggressed against. When compared with the survey results reported in The Social Organization of Sexuality, our content analysis reveals that pornography frequently portrays sexual practices that are rare in real life and are desired by neither men nor women.
