What Kids Are Learning From Online Porn

What kids are learning from online porn. This week on Mondays With Marlo, Dr.

Teenagers aren’t too proud to use words like “peekaboo” and “crush” when talking about their mutual sexual fantasies with each other. That’s kind of what happens when you feed the internet an endless supply of porn, be it from a regular naked photo from a stranger, an adult film starring an actress 11 years older than the camera-shy teenage boy she’s chatting with online, or a 15-year-old’s own porn sex tapes.

Those are just some of the findings of a new study by psychologists at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, who gathered detailed information from 1,000 current or former pupils aged between 12 and 18. It wasn’t necessarily surprising to see that quite a few of the teens that would talk openly about viewing explicit, sexually explicit content had a shocking connection to pornography. The kids in the study admitted that they access it mostly through a smartphone, or a combination of the two. About 60 percent of participants brought up specific sexual content on their phones when speaking with the researchers. Some even used a tip from Facebook or WhatsApp that way.

That said, it’s important to point out that the study didn’t touch on video games or explicit sex content on the web, so the researchers just wanted to investigate these specific forms of sexual content on a hypothetical scale. It’s also a pretty neat study, and it provides more clues to these young teens than just the facts, reports The Guardian.

Plus, there’s just something about porn that is so freeing and incredibly empowering. Everything they’ve been doing with their penises, and their sensation receptors have been becoming more and more aroused by watching others get it on. Even people with a low sexual desire who’ve never masturbated feel more comfortable if they view porn.

“How do we know that these children haven’t just watched it so long that it’s hypnotic? It’s like watching a movie,” Dr. Sara Mulle said. “When they’re 15, they’re viewing 3x a day, but they’re getting good at what they do.”

They’re mastering the skills to be able to make up their own sexual images and fantasies, which are often based on very real footage with people who are actually actual men and women. However, just like when a person over-impressionistic on their face, the porn audience often doesn’t know what they’re looking at.

“Their primary concern is the privacy of the images,” Mulle said. “I think their real worry is that they think they are going to see the school uniform-wearing boyfriend, or they can’t really imagine that someone would be attracted to their dad. But they really are, because they’re the only people they have ever seen with breasts.”

So what are they learning from this online porn? The researchers say that students are learning tolerance. For example, they use nicknames and themes that are typically reserved for horror or other more taboo related material. And that’s something that is infinitely easier and less intimidating when you’re masturbating to images that look like an over-dramatic bald European man performing lewd acts on a naked woman.

On the other hand, the researchers also say that students are learning to be more comfortable around their peers and each other. This is good in a lot of ways because as long as each classmate has never seen porn or is a part of the study, they can learn to overcome their insecurities and “be themselves.”

Here are some further findings from the study, which appears in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking:

“At the present age, internet use, particularly adult content, may be more normative than we might expect,” the researchers wrote. “The values associated with pornography could be more like those associated with appearance in advertising. As a result, frequent pornography viewing may improve body image, because it emphasizes body image in a different way.”
