Study: Porn Stars More Religious, Have Higher Self-Esteem Than Other Women

November 26, 2012

HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — Stop thinking that all porn actresses are “damaged goods.”

A new study finds that female porn stars are more religious and have a higher self-esteem than other women.

The study, which was published in the Journal of Sex Research, concluded that these women do not fit the “damaged goods hypothesis.”

“In terms of psychological characteristics, porn actresses had higher levels of self-esteem, positive feelings, social support, sexual satisfaction, and spirituality compared to the matched group,” the study titled “Pornography Actresses: An Assessment of the Damaged Goods Hypothesis” concluded.

The study compared 177 porn actresses to a sample of women based on age, race and marital status.

According to the Toronto Sun, researchers shot down the ideas that women who work in porn came from broken families or hostile backgrounds.

The study also found that women working in porn tried more drugs, had their first sexual experience at a younger age and had more sexual partners than those in the sample group.

The study was conducted by Rresearchers from Texas Woman’s University, Shippensburg University and Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation.

If they're more religious, then they're damaged goods.

I agree with r2. "More religious" does not mean more psychologically healthy: quite the contrary. The prison inmate population is "more religious" than their non-incarcerated counterparts. Countries that are "more religious" are also breeding grounds for violence and oppression whereas secular countries are more peaceful and progressive. Who the fuck really thinks "more religious" = better?

As to all the porn actresses who sport such high levels of self-esteem and positive feelings, I'd like to see a study that examines the prevalence of those traits in has-been porn actresses (ie, once they hit age 33 or so and can't get work because girls half their age are queuing up for the roles).

More religious = more stoopid Higher self-esteem = higher self-delusion.

As usual, they think all porn stars are women. In hetero porn, the men are just props.
