Abstract

Personality differences exist between consumers and non-consumers of Internet pornography, but limited attention has been given to the differences in nondeviant (adult-only) consumers and deviant (adult + deviant) pornography users. A recent study found individuals who consumed both adult + deviant pornography reported a significantly younger “age of onset” for adult pornography use compared to adult-only users. The current study investigated whether age of onset for adult pornography use and individual differences discriminated between adult-only and adult + deviant pornography use. 272 respondents completed an anonymous Internet-based survey; 46 respondents were non-pornography users, 165 respondents were adult-only pornography users, and 61respondents were adult + deviant pornography users. Results indicated that adult + deviant pornography users scored significantly higher on openness to experience and reported a significantly younger age of onset for adult pornography use compared to adult-only pornography users.
