  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: pornography, attitudes, sexism, stereotypes

Pornography is the primary means by which young people learn about sex. This, combined with a generalized lack of comprehensive sex education, can contribute to fuelling negative attitudes toward women. This research aimed to examine social perceptions of porn actresses versus porn actors, based on the stereotypes attributed to them, considering viewer’s sexist ideology. In a sample of 306 individuals (53.9% women; Mage = 27.13; SDage = 9.35), results showed that pornography contribute to stereotyping women, with the discrimination that this entails. This research contributes to a better understanding of how discrimination against women is perpetuated in the realm of pornography
