Porn Study Gets Scrapped Due To Lack Of Men Who Have Never Watched Porn

Every good study needs a control group. The control is the group that is essentially left alone to make sure that some outside variable isn’t causing the results of the study. So this Montreal University study wanted to see how porn affected the behaviour of men in their 20s. In order to do this they wanted to compare their behaviour to that of men who had never watched porn. The group that had never watched porn would be the control group for the study. It transpires, however, that they couldn’t find even one man in his 20s who hadn’t watched porn. Not one. They had to scrap the entire study because their control group didn’t exist.

Apparently in North America these days almost all men have, at one point or another, watched porn. Though they couldn’t go through with their study, the researchers did make a couple of findings about male porn viewing habits. Men, on average, first watch porn by age 10. Single men watch an average of 40 minutes of porn three times a week while men in relationships watched an average of 20 minutes twice a week.
