One of the basic components of a scientific study is the control group. For a study about the effects of pornography on men’s sexuality, the control group would be composed of men who haven’t consumed porn. These men don’t exist.
So this researcher at the Interdisciplinary Research Center on Family Violence and Violence Against Women in Montreal was trying to study “the impact of pornography on the sexuality of men, and how it shapes their perception of men and women.” But they couldn’t find any non-porn-addled guys to use as a control group. Said the researcher in a press release.
“We started our research seeking men in their twenties who had never consumed pornography. We couldn’t find any.”
