Pornography Consumers of Color and Problematic Pornography Use: Clinical Implications

Pornography Consumers of Color and Problematic Pornography Use: Clinical Implications Purpose of reviewThe purpose of this article is to utilize a problematic pornography use (PPU) framework to review the nascent research on Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) consumers of pornography.Recent findingsAdolescent and adult BIPOC research participants, and Black Americans in particular, viewed pornography more or in greater frequency when compared to their White counterparts. BIPOC adolescent consumers often preferred pornography that featured performers of colors, which frequently contains problematic racial stereotypes and aggression. Findings suggest that pornography can influence sexual scripts of BIPOC consumers and increase the probability that they will develop PPU, which can take the form of relationship aggression, sexual risk behaviors, and permissive attitudes toward sex.SummaryPornography may shape the sexual scripts and sexual interactions of BIPOC pornography viewers and set the stage for PPU. Service providers should consider providing pornography literacy programs for adolescents and assess PPU in the context of relationship distress and intimate partner violence. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Addiction Reports Springer Journals

Abstract

Purpose of reviewThe purpose of this article is to utilize a problematic pornography use (PPU) framework to review the nascent research on Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) consumers of pornography.Recent findingsAdolescent and adult BIPOC research participants, and Black Americans in particular, viewed pornography more or in greater frequency when compared to their White counterparts. BIPOC adolescent consumers often preferred pornography that featured performers of colors, which frequently contains problematic racial stereotypes and aggression. Findings suggest that pornography can influence sexual scripts of BIPOC consumers and increase the probability that they will develop PPU, which can take the form of relationship aggression, sexual risk behaviors, and permissive attitudes toward sex.SummaryPornography may shape the sexual scripts and sexual interactions of BIPOC pornography viewers and set the stage for PPU. Service providers should consider providing pornography literacy programs for adolescents and assess PPU in the context of relationship distress and intimate partner violence.
