Scientists find link between divorce and pornography

Scientists believe to have found between the probability of divorce and separation or one partner views pornography. “We are almost to the point that we dare to speak of a direct effect.”

In a period of eight years, between 2006 and 2014, asked researchers 5.698 Americans annually to their habits and living conditions.

1.681 participants said at the beginning of the period all pornography, 373 commenced during the period. On the basis of that data, saw researchers from the university of Oklahoma that the chance of separation increased as soon as people started watching porno when they previously have not done.

In men increased the probability of a separation of 5 to 10 percent. In women, growth was more significant: the chance of separation increased from 6 percent to 18 percent.


Women who start with pornography, but also stop to see the chance of a division will drop to 6 percent. In men, it has less of an effect: most of the men who participated had been looking at porn and only a few stop once they have begun.

In Science magazine tells psychologist and a porn expert, Ana Bridges, which is not connected to the research, that it’s going to be a solid conclusion. The scientists have, according to her, sufficient to take into account that there may be other factors also coming into play.
