Porn use makes teen girls five times more likely to have group sex: study
LifeSiteNews ^ | 12/22/11 | Ben Johnson

Posted on 12/22/2011 4:25:03 PM PST by wagglebee

BOSTON December 21, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – One in 13 girls aged 14-to-20, or about 7.7 percent, who participated in a recent study from Boston University’s School of Public Health said they have engaged in “Multi-Person Sex” (MPS), reports the Daily Mail. Researchers believe imitation of pornography is a leading cause.

The study involved 328 girls from underprivileged areas of the city who had visited a neighborhood clinic for sexual health issues. However, economic status did not appear to be determinative of risky sexual behavior.

The study found more than half of the girls who had engaged in MPS had been coerced into having group sex by a boy or forced into a “gang rape,” and one-third of participants had used drugs or alcohol before the encounter. In 45 percent of MPS encounters, at least one male did not use a condom.

The average age when girls began having intercourse with multiple partners was 15.6.

Researchers said the use of pornography – by either partner – was a primary influence. “Girls were five times more likely to engage in MPS if they or their boyfriends had watched porn,” said Emily Rothman, an Associate Professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences at the university. “Out of those who engaged in MPS, 50 percent did things their partners saw in porn first. Porn may be influencing the sexual behavior of these teens.”

The researchers findings give further credence to the conclusions of Canadian filmmaker Sharlene Azam, whose 2009 documentary Oral Sex is the New Goodnight Kiss documented girls as young as 11 going to sex parties and having intercourse with multiple partners. Azam attributed teenage hypersexual behavior to porn consumption.

Patrick A. Trueman, President of Morality in Media, told LifeSiteNews.com, “While the [Boston University] report is shocking, it is not altogether a surprise because…we know from scientific studies [pornography use] leads one to engage in the same activities that are viewed in the pornographic film.”

A 2005 survey found,  “Unwanted porn found its way to 17% of 10- to 11-year-old boys, 16% of girls 10 to 11 years old.”

Trueman, the former Chief of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section of the Justice Department, said that pornography distorts an underdeveloped part of teenagers’ brains known as the prefrontal cortex, which is “the home of good decision-making and reasoning.”

Scientists and psychologists have concluded this has a lifelong impact on growing boys and girls. “While masturbating to porn, the adolescent brain is being shaped around a sexual experience that is isolating, visceral, and completely void of any love or compassion,” wrote Alexandra Katehakis of Psychology Today. “This has the potential to lead to great problems in sexual compulsivity and sex addiction throughout the adolescent boy’s life, because his brain gets shaped to expect the ‘heroin-like’ porn dopamine rush from all of his real-life sexual experiences.” This expectation will lead the teen to “seek out riskier and more visceral experiences that resonate with his early porn use.”

A 2009 CyberSentinel poll claims 13-to-16 year-olds spend almost two hours a week viewing pornography. The average age a child is first exposed to internet pornography is 11.

According to Psychology Today, a 2010 study of 73 Swedish teenagers aged 14-20 revealed that teenage boys who viewed pornography accepted the notion that “women are there solely to satisfy the men’s needs…more or less uncritically.”

1 in 13 girls. . .

who were in “underprivileged” status AND visiting their neighborhood clinic for STD, birth control and abortions no doubt. . .

HARDLY a representative sampling.

I am sorry for the girls, though.

I think most of the things women do in bed are because men want it, not because women do. I mean... so many of the things that people do are just utterly bizarre to me. Group sex is one of those things. Why? Seriously, why do people want to do this? I have never, ever been able to figure this out.

Correlation does not imply causation. Common sense would suggest that more sexually active girls would be more likely to engage in group sex and also to watch pornography. This does not mean that either one caused the other.

that’s easy... you find someone else besides your current partner attractive ... and want to have sex with them too. So you talk your current partner into letting you.

I agree with your post.

Right after Clinton said oral sex wasn’t sex, the act became almost required in dating, young girls started doing it as common practice. Along came tongue piercing, Tramp stamps, Homosexual class’s in school.Divorces increasing.The attacks on Church,Christanity, and the lack of morality in old and young these days.

There are a lot of reasons young girls and boys turn to sex and sex with multiple partners,including peer pressure.

I am certain pornography adds to the problem, and porn is so easy to find. Of course people,especially young people act out what they see in these films.I say pornography adds to the problem, but it is by no means the only problem.

Young people today are forgetting how to love, and that love is not fornication.

Years ago after extensive interviewing, Masters and Johnson reported on serious research data about sexual fantasies, gathered in pre-internet days. You would be surprised to know the favored sexual fantasies of women vs men.

In order to have group sex with teen girls you have to be in the same room as the teen girls. No thanks!

When people kept bashing Perry about GARDASIL I posted links showing that Junior High kids were freely engaging in oral sex nowdays and HPV can be passed that way.

It’s worse than many parents realize. I even had one Freeper father tell me that ‘his daughter would tell him if she did’ and THEN he would take her for the vaccine..... Imagine that!

Most? I find that a little hard to believe. An interesting tidbit that's confounded a marriage counselor I know for decades, and I admit I have no answer: The couples that come to her that have been involved in swinging were almost universally initiated by the man. However, for the confusing part, once into the lifestyle, the men were also the first to want to give it up. The women were more apt to report that they missed it.

I've got news for you: It was common practice well before Clinton. It was a near 100% certainty under Reagan, when I was dating.

I think porn falls under freedom of the press. The applicable part of the First Amendment is,

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press;

Where in the First Amendment does it say, except for porn?

Group sex has been happening since the dawn of mankind.

Exactly how do you think we all got here?

Monogamism is a hopeful wish of the female of our species..

It is an admirable idea and goal, but unattainable by and large.

I don’t even know where to start. The sample is screwed. I might as well go to an AA meeting and then write a book on American drinking habits.

Then there is the whole cause and effect thing. Sexually promiscuous girls watch more porn. Who’d a thunk it? Worse, who decided that porn was the egg and promiscuity was the chicken? I guess cause and effect are just convenient words, and not real principles that make for good science.

“I think most of the things women do in bed are because men want it, not because women do.”

I would disagree. Women however typically abhor ‘casual’ sex, and men will typically be drawn to and prefer precisely such a lack of commitment. This article indicates that the porn tends to make young and impressionable females similarly callous. Predatory homosexuals also use such an approach on the young and vulnerable.

My first marriage ended due to this activity. I wanted to give it up and settle down and just be a normal family, find a church and seek forgiveness.

She didn’t. It was not I that initiated us into the ‘lifestyle’ but I did fully participate and enjoyed almost all of it.

Then I grew up. I realized after 12 years and NO std’s that I was one of the lucky ones. I wanted to stay lucky.

I’ve been walking with Christ for 6 years now and do not look back.

Well, in his defense, I have a teenage daughter living at home going to college. As near as I can tell, she never shuts up. If she has female friends over, it sounds like crickets chirping at any distance beyond her door. I don’t even think they’re communicating, but just making noise together.

Just confirming what I already know. It’s confused my shrink friend for years, and I don’t begin to understand it. You’re not alone though. It seems women are much more comfortable with that lifestyle once they’re into it than men are.

Keep in mind that twenty years ago rap music was primarily listened to by people from underprivileged areas.

Go to any mall in America and you will see kids who are clearly from privileged families behaving like they belong in the inner city.
