How Our More Permissive Attitudes Toward Porn May Impact Marriage
With free and unfiltered pornography continuing to expand its reach into our homes and everyday lives via smartphones, streaming services, and other devices, it is not a huge surprise that more Americans today view porn as “morally acceptable” than in the past. But a recent Gallup poll shows that the percentage of Americans who say porn is “morally acceptable” has reached the highest level since Gallup first began asking the question in its annual Values and Beliefs survey in 2011. Although our attitudes about porn have been changing more slowly than other issues over the years, the percentage of Americans who believe porn is morally acceptable increased from 36% in 2017 to 43% in 2018.
