  1. Great work! What an interesting topic. I wonder how women’s consumption of violent pornography can impact their mindset. Have you found any research on that front?

    1. Thank you for your comments and your question. The most prominant pieces of information I found on how consumption of violent pornography can impact a woman’s mindset were about the rise of violent fantasies, the so-called “fifty shades” effect. A 2012 study by Bivona et al. of 355 young women found that, overall, 62% of the women reported having had at least one fantasy about a forced sexual act. The study then went further to investigate why women have rape fantasies at all. Two explanations they evaluated in this investigation were 1. sexual blame avoidance, and 2. sexual desirability. Long story short, the women were found to either be sexually repressed or expressed wanting to feel sexually desired.

  3. What a great topic, Anya! I agree with your arguments. More conversation about the effects of violent pornography and sexual violence needs to be done, along with discussions around women’s rights (imo!).
