If Porn Is Sex Ed, What Does It Teach About Consent? A Content Analysis of 50 Current Porn Films
Description: We describe the types of sexual consent cues modeled in popular pornographic films. We coded fifty films from 2014-2015 for the consent cues used by each character in the moments preceding every sexual behavior. We found that pornography does not consistently model sexual consent being communicated before behaviors begin, largely due to rapid behavioral transitions between behaviors. Therefore, people may be learning that moving from behavior to behavior within a sexual encounter requires limited or no consent communication.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: identify different types of consent communication that is modeled in pornography.
