A new study suggests that exposing heterosexual men to pornography increases the likelihood that they'll support gay marriage.
A new scholarly analysis suggests that the more straight guys, especially those who are less educated, watch pornographic videos, the more they warm to same-sex marriage. The reason: Porn opens their mind up to accepting non-traditional sexual situations, like gay sex.
The authors used studies of approximately 500 straight guys over the past six years that were funded by the National Science Foundation . Their findings were published in the Communication Research journal. They also speculate that the popularity of lesbian pornography helps warm the heterosexual men to the idea of same-sex marriage.
Of note, the authors suggested that since lesbian porn "is quite popular among males," the change seen in the men toward same-sex marriage suggests "a change in males' attitude regarding male-male marriage." [Washington Examiner]
