  • 78% of women and 48% of men said “Yes, absolutely” or “I think it is”.
  • Men were twice as likely to say “No, it’s not”, 20% vs 10%. Adding in “I doubt it” 31% of men and 12% of don’t think porn use is adultery.
  • For women being more devoted to the Lord had a major impact on this. In the most devout group, 85% answered “I think it is” or “Yes, absolutely.” In the middle group, 72% gave one of these answers. In the saved but least devout group, only 13% gave one of these answers. (The one respondent who was not following Jesus said, “I’m not sure”.
  • Men also were more likely to say some form of yes if they were more devout. From most devout to unsaved the rates for the two yes answers were 53%, 40%, 20% and 20%.
  • The more porn a man had used in the last 3 months, the less likely he was to say porn use is adultery. 56% of non-users and one time users said it is. 48% of those who used once said it is. Only 33% of heavier uses said porn use is adultery.
  • A woman’s porn use had a similar but smaller effect, with 90% of non-users and one time users said it is.

  • 52% of women and 22% of men gave one of the two “yes” answers.
  • How serious a woman is about following Jesus had an effect on this. Yes answers, (“Yes, no question” and “I think so”) from most serious to least were 57%, 44%, and 25%.
  • Men giving one of the two yes answers from most devout to unsaved were 25%, 16%, 10% and 0%.
  • A man’s porn use affected this one – with half of those who use “often” saying “Absolutely not”.
  • Half of women who use porn often said “Absolutely not”, while 59% of non-users said ongoing porn use justified divorce.

  • Not surprisingly men were more likely to say porn use does not justify avoiding sex. Two-thirds of men but only a third of women answered in the negative.
  • One woman in five, but only one man in 20 said ongoing porn definitely justified avoiding sex.
  • A quarter of women and 18% of men were unsure.
  • Among women the “Yes, no question” answer was only given by women who are very serious about their walk with the Lord, with 24% of that group giving this answer. The two yes answers were given by 46% of the most devout women, 33% of the moderately devout, and none of the least devout.
  • For men there was no big difference on this one based on how serious they were about following the Lord. The most devout were more likely to say “Yes” than “I think so” but the totals of the two answers were very similar.
  • A man’s porn use affected this one a great deal. Rates of “Absolutely not” from most porn use to none were 71%, 52%, 48%, 38%, and 33%.
  • Female porn use also strongly affected this. Among women who use porn often or more than a few times, 88% said porn use absolutely did not justify avoiding sex. This answer was given by 45% of occasional users, and 27% of those who looked at porn once or not at all.

  • The number of men and women who said “no” was the same (84% vs 85%) but men were more likely to say it makes it understandable while women tended towards “and it’s not an excuse”.
  • For women almost all the “Yes” and “Maybe” came from the least devout Christians. From most devout to least the rate of a yes and maybe was 9%, 6%, and 63%.
  • The most devout women were the most likely to say “No, and it’s not an excuse”, at 58%. 44% of moderately devout and 13% of the least devout gave this answer.
  • The least devout men were far more likely to say yes or maybe, at 70%. 16% of moderately devout and 9% of very devout man gave one of these answers.
  • The more porn a man is using, the more likely he was to say “Yes” or “Maybe” for this question. From most porn use to none, the totals for those two answers were 28%, 21%, 14%, 10%, and 5%.
  • Women who didn’t use porn or only looked once were less likely to think sexual refusal justified porn use, much more likely to say it was not an excuse.

  • 29% of women and 69% of men have intentionally looked at porn in the last 3 months. These numbers are very close to what is found in large-scale surveys of this issue.
  • A quarter of the men and 7% of women looked at porn “more than a few times” or “often”.
  • Thirteen percent of both men and women looked once – most likely a “slip” from someone trying not to look.
  • For women being more serious about the Lord greatly reduces porn use. Those who said “No, not at all” going from most to least devout were 75%, 67%, and 25%. On the other end, “Yes, more than a few times” and “Yes often” rates from most devout to least were 4%, 11% and 38%.
  • For men being more serious about the Lord helps, but not as much as for women. “No, not at all” running from most devout to unsaved was 37%, 20%, 20% and 0%. On the other end, “Yes, more than a few times” and “Yes often” rates from most devout to least were 21%, 34%, and 50%.
