The results also correlated the ready acceptance of the use of porn by younger folks by their ease in casually and openly discussing porn with friends and acquaintances.

Last summer, the Barna Group, the conservative Christian research and polling organization, was commissioned by Josh Mc Dowell Ministries, also conservative Christians, to research the observation and use of pornography in today’s highly sexualized culture.

“Our data suggest that other factors such as personal dispositions – specifically sexual sensation seeking – rather than consumption of sexually explicit material may play a more important role in a range of sexual behaviors of adolescents and young adults, and that the effects of sexually explicit media on sexual behaviors in reality need to be considered in conjunction with such factors,” said Gert Martin Hald of the University of Copenhagen.

In all, 4,600 individuals between the ages of 15 and 25 were recruited into the online survey.
