There is no delicate way to say this: Exposure to pornography softens opposition to same-sex marriage among the largest group of naysayers, heterosexual men.
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.
"Our study suggests that the more heterosexual men, especially less educated heterosexual men, watch pornography, the more supportive they become of same-sex marriage," Indiana University Assistant Professor Paul Wright told Secrets.

I beg to differ. I watch lots of porn and do not support same sex marriage in the least.
lipstick lesbians make the best hot mamas?
Lack of morality. Not hard to figure out.
Liberals say “It’s progress, it’s the future.”
3,500 year ago the Jewish prophets wrote about the same kind of moral decline - homosexuality, tree worship, godess worship, people following their own morals. There’s nothing new about it.
And in other news going on lots of dates makes men taller and more handsome...
Well put. If this were one of our “raise the level of discourse” threads, we would need the Latin for the journalist’s error: “Post hoc ergo propter hoc” - after this, therefore because of this - but you made the point better.
I believe a lot of men watch Lesbian porn. I doubt many watch male gay porn. For some reason many men wonder what women do that attracts them to other women.
The answer is nothing a man cannot do better.
I like your post due to it’s shortness. And awesomeness.
Needs spun round the other way. People who watch lots of porn have more libertine views on sexuality and are more likely to support gay marriage (along with a lot of other things).
I had a friend, who, in another lifetime, handled IT for a porn site. Thankfully, he only handled the computers and stayed away from the front of the camera (shudder....him posing would have single-handedly ended the entire porn industry overnight...) This was back in the mid-90s, when the Internet was just firing up.
He said that he learned two things....what is presented as porn, and what porn is, are completely different. He said that a photo shoot is about as sexy as going to the bank and making a withdrawal. 100% business, and that's it.
AND, he said that when two women are together, if a guy jumps into the mix, he just gets in the way. :-) "It ain't what you think!", he said, approximately.
