Young Adults' Experiences with Sexually Explicit Internet Materials Open Access

Though young adults today have been exposed to sexually explicit internet materials (SEIM) at young ages through easily accessible platforms, little is known about SEIM’s influence on sexual self-esteem. This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between these variables for heterosexual and gay men, as well as heterosexual females, a vastly underrepresented population in research involving SEIM. Participants completed an online survey through a Facebook link posted by 10 recruiters. The typical length of SEIM viewing sessions was found to be negatively correlated with heterosexual males and females’ sexual self-esteem.
