In this chapter, the authors critically review the body of research on adolescents’ and emerging adults’ pornography use and its consequences. We start with a number of theoretical concepts—including social learning and comparison theories, sexual scripting, self-objectification theory, the confluence model, the value congruence model, cultivation...
Article
Rationale Although there is some evidence that religious faith may offer protection against sexual risk taking in adolescence and emerging adulthood, no attempts have been made to systematically quantify the association. Objective Using data from studies conducted in the 2000–2020 period, this meta-analysis aimed to estimate the link between relig...

In longitudinal studies of pornography use, selective loss of participants who may be more vulnerable to the effects of pornography than their peers is a serious concern. To explore the potential for such selective dropout, we used data from two independent large-scale panel studies of adolescents’ pornography use. Of the three types of attrition—e...
Article
Objectives: The study explored characteristics associated with the self-assessed effects of pornography use on one’s personal sex life. Methods: Data were collected in a probability-based sample of Norwegian adults (n = 4,160). Results: Most participants (41.3%) did not believe that pornography affected their sex life. More participants reported po...
Article
Although online pornography use appears to be a mainstream activity, there is little information, particularly outside of the USA, about how consumers perceive its impact on their sexuality. Considering increasing concerns about pornography use, this lack of evidence has sociocultural and clinical ramifications - especially because the recently pro...
Article
Jednostavnost pristupa internetskoj pornografiji izazvala je zabrinutost odgojnih stručnjaka i opće javnosti zbog negativnih učinaka pornografije na psihosocijalno i seksualno sazrijevanje adolescenata. Pretpostavljena povezanost između uporabe pornografije i rizičnog seksualnog ponašanja, posebice nezaštićenog spolnog odnosa, često se nalazi u sre...

Diljem svijeta vjerske zajednice i laička vjerski orijentirana udruženja potiču vjernike, osobito mlade, na aktivan angažman u promicanju i zaštiti religijskih vrijednosti. U Hrvatskoj se vjerski društveni angažman promovira i prakticira već desetljećima, no taj je iskaz religioznosti ostao posve neistraženim. U svrhu stvaranja pretpostavki za izuč...

Objectives Given the paucity of studies focusing on testosterone (T) and adolescent sexuality, and their conflicting findings, we aimed to empirically address two competing conceptualizations of the link between T and sexual behavior in adolescence: (1) the T as sexual motivator and (2) the T as competition-sensitive sexual motivator models. Metho...

Full-text available
The unprecedented accessibility and affordability of online sexually explicit material (SEM) has facilitated widespread use among adolescents and growing concerns over adverse reproductive health outcomes. Although SEM-induced risky sexual behavior is among key concerns, there is a paucity of longitudinal research addressing this issue. This study...

Full-text available
Nezadovoljstvo tjelesnim izgledom u razdoblju adolescencije rizični je čimbenik za razvoj poremećaja hranjenja, niskog samopouzdanja i depresije. Dosadašnja istraživanja ukazuju na zaštitnu ulogu obiteljske komunikacije i podrške spram nezadovoljstva tjelesnim izgledom. Međutim, manje je poznato kakav je odnos između zadovoljstva tjelesnim izgledom...

Full-text available
The contemporary technological and communicational context in which adolescents row up is characterized by easy access to sexually explicit material (SEM), which brings up numerous concerns about possible negative effects of SEM use on their psychosocial development. Regarding various unwanted behavioral and emotional outcomes, the protective role...
Article
Longitudinal survey design is the preferred method for the robust assessment of outcomes associated with socially undesirable or potentially harmful sexual behaviors. However, repeated measurement may induce the question–behavior effect (QBE)—the phenomenon where asking about a behavior changes the probability of engaging in the behavior in the fut...
Article
The relationship between adolescent religiosity and pornography use has been longitudinally tested only in the USA. Given the social relevance of hypothesized mechanisms underlying the association, this study offers a three-wave longitudinal assessment of parallel latent growth in the two constructs carried out in a South European country. Using re...
Article
This review analyzed longitudinal studies examining the effects of sexually explicit material on adolescents' attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. The review also aimed to provide an analysis of the limitations of the existing studies, as well as recommendations for future research. To be included, publications had to employ repeated measurements, inc...
