A new study has found that the viewing of pornography at work is at unprecedented levels and is causing a raft of issues for individuals and businesses.

Study co-author Melissa Lewis-Western said: “Pornography is often framed as an issue affecting only individuals and relationships outside of a business context, but businesses are made up of people, and people make decisions, and businesses function off the decisions people make.

“If you have a societal phenomenon that a lot of people are participating in and it negatively impacts individuals’ decisions, that has the potential to impact organizational-level outcomes.”

Watch an interview below with pornography addiction recovery coach Noah Church who explains why pornography is causing problems for men today:

Other authors of the study, professor David Wood and graduate student Nathan Mecham, say because porn consumption causes dehumanization, the incidence of sexual harassment or hostile work environments is “likely to increase with increases in employee pornography consumption”.

“Organizations should be mindful of those risks,” said Mecham, now a Ph.D. student at the University of Pittsburgh.
