STUDY: Porn Makes Straight Guys Support Gay Marriage

By Daniel Villarreal

Many factors are influencing larger numbers of voters to support same-sex marriage. But it turns out that one of those factors might be porn. No, really.

When researchers looked over the last six years of studies funded by the National Science Foundation and found that the more porn a straight guy watches, the more likely he is to support same-sex marriage. They say this is especially true the less educated a man is.

Indiana University Assistant Professor Paul Wright said, "Pornography adopts an individualistic, nonjudgmental stance on all kinds of nontraditional sexual behaviors and same-sex marriage attitudes are strongly linked to attitudes about same-sex sex."

Here's the funny thing though. The authors of the study think the numerous lesbian scenes in porn intended for straight men might actually be what softens their attitudes towards same-sex unions. After all, if a woman wants to go down on her female friend, why shouldn't they also be allowed to go down to the courthouse and get hitched? Make sense.

Wright added that, "Since a portion of individuals' sexual attitudes come from the media they consume, it makes sense that pornography viewers would have more positive attitudes towards same-sex marriage."

Perhaps the Human Rights Campaign and Gays and Lesbians Allied Against Defamation should encourage more undecided male voters to watch such quality films as Cum Slutz Revenge and The Fisting Sisters Trilogy: Part Four as a way to covertly encourage straight guys to vote gay.
