Most people know at least one person who watches porn ‘religiously’.
But a new study has found that watching pornography more than once a week can cause people to hold stronger religious beliefs than those who only occasionally watch x-rated videos.
And researchers say this could be down to people compensating for guilty feelings with prayer.
Samuel Perry analysed data from more than 1,300 Americans over a six-year period to find out how watching pornography affects religious belief over time.
“Those who used pornography at the highest frequencies seemed to be more religious in terms of prayer frequency and worship attendance than those who used pornography at more moderate levels,” Dr Perry told The Independent.
Some people who watched pornography might have turned to religion for repentance, he theorised, while in some cases compulsive behaviour towards both religious participation and pornography use might be the cause.
But the result was more likely to be down to compensatory action, he said – or possibly because some people have watched so much porn that they no longer feel guilty about combining it with religious pursuits.
