Watching porn makes straight men more open to idea of gay marriage

London, Feb. 5 (ANI): Straight men, who watch pornography, are more likely to warm up to the idea of two people of the same sex getting married, a study has claimed.

Paul Wright, assistant professor of communications at Indiana University and author of the study, told the Washington Examiner that the effect was particularly marked in men who were less-well educated.

He said that the change in attitude could be because of pornography opening their mind for acceptance of non-traditional sexual situations - like those involving participants of the same sex.

He said that if people think that individuals should be able to decide for themselves whether to have same-sex sex, they will also think that individuals should be able to decide for themselves whether to get married to a partner of the same-sex, the Daily Mail reported.

Wright said that since a portion of individuals' sexual attitudes come from the media they consume, it made sense that viewers of pornography are going to have more positive attitudes towards gay marriage.

For the study, Professor Wright and study co-author Ashley Randall, of the University of Arizona, looked at data from studies of 500 heterosexual men over the past five years funded by the National Science Foundation.

The result of the study has been published in the journal Communication Research. (ANI)
