A study looks at controversial expressions related to pornography and feminism.

In short, some researchers feel there should be ongoing studies on the subject or pornography but with attention to sensitivity.
A study reviewed sexual habits and sexual behaviors of men who have sex with prostitutes. Researchers collected a wide variety of information to learn more about why men engage in sexual activity with prostitutes. The concept of someone selling their body for sexual pleasure or money is usually the subject of discussion. Yet, researchers who conducted this study felt the emphasis on why men engage in this activity is not explored much as it should. The idea of the study is to get a better understanding in the role of men, why they may do this and if they have elevated sexual tendencies (sexual wants and needs getting met).
Researchers conducted a study that includes reviewing men’s success in seeking a same sex partner through online dating sites.
