A University of Montreal study looked at the porn watching habits of men. As the researchers could not find any 20 year old males who didn't watch porn, they focused on those who did. They found that men, both in relationships and single regularly watched porn.  (Source: Alltop)

Another new study says that a third of people "sext" -- send explicit picture messages. Half of those who do it think its normal and healthy, while the others think it's sick, but do it anyhow.  (Source: Gizmodo)
The sexual revolution continues with the help of the internet and modern technology

The "sexual revolution" began in the 1960s when oral contraceptives saw FDA approval for the first time, reducing the risk of unwanted pregnancy.  Since then society has struggled to keep up with a variety of sexual changes, such as growing acceptance of fetishes, alternate sexual orientations, and sexual entertainment.

Two new studies examine how technology has impacted the tail end of the sexual revolution, which is occurring today.  The first, looks at the pornography viewing habits of males in their 20s.  The study wanted to compare males who watched porn to those who didn't indulge.  However, the researchers were unable to find a man who had not be exposed to pornography.

Professor Simon Louis Lajeunesse a researcher at the University of Montreal and leader of the study, comments, "We started our research seeking men in their 20s who had never consumed pornography.  We couldn't find any."

Undeterred, the researchers thrust ahead, and examined the habits of men who did watch pornography, which, as former presidential candidate Sarah Palin would say, was "all of them."  Of the 20 heterosexual males who participated in the study, the average age for the first time viewing porn was 10 years old.  Approximately 90 percent of the porn viewed, by the participants' estimations, came from online sources, while 10 percent came from old-fashioned adult entertainment stores.

There were slight differences between the viewing habits of single men and men in a relationship.  Single men indulged for 40 minutes, three times a week, while those in relationships watched it 1.7 times a week for around 20 minutes.  The study found that the porn did nothing to alter the men's sexual preferences, as they quickly discarded material they found offensive.  Comments Professor Lajenesse, "Not one subject had a pathological sexuality.  In fact, all of their sexual practices were quite conventional. Pornography hasn't changed their perception of women or their relationship, which they all want to be as harmonious and fulfilling as possible"

Another intriguing study was performed by MTV, who asked participants a variety of questions on the growing practice of "sexting" -- sending explicit pictures of oneself or others to friends or significant others.  Of the participants, one third said they sexted at least once.  Another interesting tidbit of information revealed by the study is that approximately 1 in 6 (17 percent) of those who received sexts forwarded them to someone else.  Also interesting was that half of those who sexted thought the practice was normal and healthy, while the others found it disgusting and wrong, but for some reason were doing it anyways. 

Those looking to jump on the emerging sexting sexual revolution should beware as they may find a sticky legal mess on their hands.  Sexting with underage individuals, even if you are underage yourself can result in you being charged for sex offenses.  Several teenage boys have been labeled as sex offenders, been kicked out of jobs and colleges, and found their futures destroyed after being caught sexting and charged.
