The legality of pornography and its effects on viewers has been a topic of debate for decades in the United States. The purpose of this study is to identify the relationship of pornography and its effects on sexual aggression toward women. This research quantitatively analyzed this relationship using data from the National Health and Social Life Survey. The sample consists of 3432 English speaking respondents between the ages of 18 and 59, located in the United States. Unlike prior research the present study found little connection between forcing sexual contact on a woman and pornography use. The implications and limitations of these results are discussed.
