Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

A commonly attributed cause of sexual body image dissatisfaction is pornography use. This relationship has received little verification.

METHODS:

The relationship between sexual body image dissatisfaction and Internet pornography use was tested using a large-N sample of Dutch respondents.

RESULTS/CONCLUSION:

Penis size dissatisfaction is associated with pornography use. The relationship between pornography use and breast size dissatisfaction is null. These results support prior speculation and self-reports about the relationship between pornography use and sexual body image among men. These results also support a prior null finding of the relationship between breast size satisfaction for women and pornography use.

KEYWORDS:

Body Image; Erotica; Genital Image
