This study examined how the viewing of pornography has affected the relationships, attitudes, and trust for both men and women. Participants included 625 participants, all from Boise State University. Participants completed questionnaires online. The questionnaires had questions about if the participants watched pornography, relationship problems because of pornography, and how often they viewed pornography. The results concluded for this study that there is a difference in gender usage, pornography does impact relationships, attitudes toward pornography are more open, and pornography causes a lack of trust. The discussion explains that pornography, in this sample, does have an effect on if the participant views pornography and how it affects their attitudes and relationships with others.
