Watching porn makes people closer to God

Samuel L. Perry, the professor of sociology, has provided a research according to the results of which it is possible to make a conclusion that the more porn people watch, the oftener they pray. Perry used the data from the Portraits of American Life Study which collected information on how often a thousand American adults watched porn, attended religious services, and prayed. Comparing the data over six years – 2006 to 2012 – Perry found that people who watch porn are found to become less religious over time, as he had predicted.

“Because of the guilt and shame often associated with pornography use, especially among devoutly-religious Americans, I expected that using pornography at all would predict lower levels of religiosity over time,”

However, the trend is actually the complete opposite for those who watched the highest amounts of porn. People who watched porn once a week or more – regardless of age or gender – became steadily more religious over the six years.

Alternatively, the sociologist suggests that the trend may be due to differing personalities.
“Some personality types tend to be compulsive about religious participation and these same folks may also be compulsive in other areas of their lives like pornography use.” And for some people, Perry claims – its all just part of their daily routine. “It no longer makes them feel guilty and they just do it daily, like getting dressed or brushing their teeth,” Perry said. “This allows them to be very religious while using pornography at the highest frequencies.”
