HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Stop thinking that all porn actresses are damaged goods.
A new study finds that female porn stars are more religious and have a higher self-esteem than other women.
The study, which was published in the Journal of Sex Research, concluded that these women do not fit the damaged goods hypothesis.
In terms of psychological characteristics, porn actresses had higher levels of self-esteem, positive feelings, social support, sexual satisfaction, and spirituality compared to the matched group, the study titled Pornography Actresses: An Assessment of the Damaged Goods Hypothesis concluded.
The study compared 177 porn actresses to a sample of women based on age, race and marital status.
According to the Toronto Sun, researchers shot down the ideas that women who work in porn came from broken families or hostile backgrounds.
The study also found that women working in porn tried more drugs, had their first sexual experience at a younger age and had more sexual partners than those in the sample group.
The study was conducted by researchers from Texas Womans University, Shippensburg University and Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation.
Thanks, but I'll wait for a second opinion.
Lots of other evidence indicates that these women hate what they are doing and most of what they do on screen is fake and repulsive to them. Interviews of those who have left the “profession” for a normal life.
I’ve got to find the church where they all worship.
I dated a Hispanic gal for a while but, I became suspicious that she was seeing someone else.
She would shout out “Oh Jess! Jess!”
Women who work in porn have more sexual partners than those who don’t? That’s amazing. Who would ever have suspected that?
I dated a girl who is an Internet porn star. She doesn’t know it yet.
I’d need to conduct personal interviews to be convinced.
A trumpeter is hired to play two solos in a movie. After the sessions he is paid handsomely and promised by the director that he will be notified when the movie is released to the public.
Three months later, he receives a notice that the movie will make its debut in Times Square at a porno house. The musician enters the theatre wearing a dark raincoat and shades. Unaccustomed to porno flicks, he sits in the last row next to an elderly couple.
The film has explicit sex scenes: oral intercourse, anal intercourse, golden showers, sado-masochism and near the end a dog has intercourse with the leading female character. The musician who is immensely embarrassed turns to the elderly couple and whispers, “I wrote the score and I just came to hear the music”, to which the elderly woman whispers in reply, “We just came to see our dog.”
That was a boring movie. Kind of like being married.
Not to mention the sets are never cleaned, they film for hours a day, injuries to female sexual organs are common and include things like bleeding, tearing, and herniating. Drug use is rampant, as is STDs.
I broke up with a girl. Called her on the phone and asked what she was up to, she told me she was relaxing on the sofa with an afghan. I couldn’t believe she would cheat, much less with the enemy.
I thought so too, but the image with the article can’t be posted on FR...
I am totally shocked and disgusted by your vile and reprehensible attempt at humor and what's worse is I'm having trouble typing this because I'm ROTFLMAO :)
Who exacly was in the control group? Crack Whore Prostitutes?
This study was conducted at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library, no doubt.
Up is down, down is up. Placating to the godless.
Ive got to find the church where they all worship.
Church of Hot Addiction....
“Someone should tell these researchers that screaming “OH MY GOD I’M COMING” is not an expression of religious fervor.”
No need for me to post you summed it all up in this one sentence!
Jesus did hang out with prostitutes, criminals, and murders for a reason, if anyone makes it to heaven first, it will be the worst of the worst! Jesus said “a sick man needs a doctor not a well man!” He also said “the first shall be last,” God bless the porn industry, Jesus loves you despite others who try and cast the first stone!
This just in from the Lupus Institute, more wolves released into the wild actually decreases ranchers’ herd losses...
Having Self esteem and being religious (at least Christian) are completely at odds..
Also Planned Parenthood just came out with their own report saying all their clients who had abortions returned to a state of virginity.
i wonder how much time they spend in their church on their knees.
i wonder when they’re down there if it feels too much like being at work.
yeah that one got me, too. kinda like farmers get more dirty at work than secretaries.
And to these people he said go and sin no more...
Not... “hey whatever floats your boat”
He recognized what they were doing *as sickness* and called it such. In our society we call it harmless fun and get upset when people judge it..
Harry Reems married a Christian woman, found God and is now a real estate agent.
[her prayers sure got answered]
Jesus loves porn?....really?
The above statement kind of contradicts most of the article. Doing drugs, having sex at a very young age and having a sh** load of sex partners doesn't fit the "more religious" statement made early on in the article.
That wouldn’t apply to the she types.
But anyhow, what SORT of religion? Several flavors of paganism would lend themselves handily to this sort of vocation.
Studies also show kids with the highest ‘self-esteem’ in High School are gang members.
There’s something about being narcissistic AND totally out of touch with social norms that make for high self esteem.
No, Jesus doesn’t watch porn, He just wants to help and save as many sinners as possible, the way to the Father is through Him, Porn stars are sick and they need His help too, so are criminals, porn stars can be saved, Jesus is very forgiving, Jesus sacrificed Himself for our sins, for we are all sinners, we are all flawed, yet Jesus loves us all the same, take care!
I never said porn was okay nor sin, Jesus wants us to fight sin, yet that doesn’t mean He won’t forgive us for stumbling in the darkness in search of His light, we are all sinners: “He who is without sin cast the first stone!” I’m a sinner, so I can’t judge a porn star nor can I cast the first stone, Jesus is the only One who can judge the spirit of others. I think people are going to be surprised who makes it into Heaven first, Jesus wants everyone to be given a chance to find His truth, even porn stars!
The study also found that women working in porn tried more drugs, had their first sexual experience at a younger age and had more sexual partners than those in the sample group.There is the Leftist goal. Break down traditional values so that it becomes legal and the norm for children to do drugs and have sex. This is where Leftist "progress" is taking us. We are suppossed to be OK with raising prostitutes because they are the most spiritual and happy.
Yea, no bull - "the most spiritual and happy".
I never said porn was okay nor sin,You said:
God bless the porn industry,
Im a sinner, so I cant judge a porn star nor can I cast the first stone, Jesus is the only One who can judge the spirit of others.I am a sinner too. I can have an opinion of people on their bad behavour and Jesus will judge their spirit. Jesus wants us to know right from wrong so we don't go around spreading wickedness by saying "God bless the porn industry".
The kind of arrogance that one would have to have to be willing to engage in that kind of lifestyle could be misinterpreted as *self-esteem*.
On the contrary......
Christians know their value to God and have NO reason to have poor self-esteem. They know who they are and what they're worth to Him.
They're worth enough for Him to come to the earth and die an excruciating death for.
No, they are not sick. They are sinners, like the rest of us.
Sin is a choice, not an illness one catches and can't do anything about.
