. Psychologists from the USA found that viewing pornography at an early age makes a man likely to dominate over women and get acquainted with her at a later age turns them into playboys and «cauldrons». About the results of their observations they reported in the next meeting of the American psychological Association in Washington.

«We wanted to examine how the age at which men first view pornography and what they saw affects their tendency to two behavioral stereotypes – the desire to be dissolute playboy or authoritarian «macho». As it turned out, the earlier a boy starts to watch porn, the more often he gets macho and Vice versa – late watching porn often makes him a playboy,» says Alissa, Bachmann (Alyssa Bischmann) from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (USA).

In recent years psychologists and sociologists have become interested in how pornography and other kinds of sex-content on TV and in the global network affect the behavior of men and women.

For example, last year scientists from the University of Oklahoma found that involvement in pornography in couples is an indicator of broken relationships and indicates a high probability of divorce in the coming months and years. A little earlier, Danish researchers found that viewing pornography changes the behaviour of men and makes them more prone to discrimination against women in cases where they differed authoritarian mindset.

Bachmann, and her colleagues have discovered another unusual connection between porn use and behavior men, having studied the results of an anonymous survey that they conducted among students of the University. In total in it participated more than 300 young men and men aged 17 to 54 years, who agreed to tell scientists about the details of their sex life.

This survey led to several interesting results. First, scientists have found that the majority of students was first introduced to pornography at an early age – around 13-14 years old, and about half of them, by their own admission, did it by accident. What is even more interesting, about 17% of them have seen porn by coercion peers or elders.

Even more interesting was the discovery that the age of first viewing porn affect men’s behavior – the sooner they are familiar with pornography, the more they become «macho». Late watching porn, on the contrary, turned men into loving, but windy «playboys».

Both, as noted, Bachmann, was a big surprise for scientists because they expected an early viewing of pornography will increase and that and the other trend. Interestingly, the type of pornography and then, did they voluntarily, accidentally or by compulsion, had no effect on what became of the young man in later years of life.

Such communication, as scientists believe, should be considered social authorities and the authorities in designing measures that would help to reduce the level of sexual violence in society. In addition, it can help sexologists and psychotherapists to help their patients get rid of problems related to personal and family life.
