Study: Porn Stars More Religious, Have Higher Self-Esteem Than Other Women
November 26, 2012 12:53 PM

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 researchers from Texas Woman’s University, Shippensburg University and Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation.

Here's a story idea for abc27 to run during sweeps. They can ask Shippensburg University if the study was funded with Federal grant money. That's the excuse state and local government organizations always use when they're caught pissing away tax money. :roll:

Ask them if tuition will increase next year.

Religion and Spirituality are two entirely different things.

Give me the topic and the money and I will have a study performed that will skew the results any way you want.
