The Effects Pornography has on Dating and Gender Norms
In this paper, I plan to review the research and findings on how pornography influences gender norms within society and how this has a positive and/or negative impact on relationships and intimacy. During my review, I will explore the different aspects of how pornography influences dating and intimacy, and gender norms within our society. I hypothesize that due to the overwhelming rates of aggression, violence, and objectification of women in mainstream pornographic videos and the surging rates of users viewing these videos on a consistent basis, pornography has a negative influence on dating and gender norms.
