Mayes, Peyton, "How Pornography Consumption Affects the Consumer and a Biblical Response to the Temptations of Modern Sexuality" (2022). Senior Honors Theses. 1207.
It has been shown that 93% of boys and 62% girls prior to age 13 have been exposed to pornography (Sabina et al., 2008). Only in the last decade has the ability to view sexual content been made available to almost all groups of society, regardless of wealth or social status. This paper will address this issue by reviewing literature on the neuropathology, sexual dysfunctions, and violent content associated with pornography consumption. Although a significant amount of research has been done on the impacts of pornography, there is relatively little discussion on possible interventional methods. This gap in knowledge will be addressed by exploring a relevant biblical response to the topic.
