ABSTRACT
The article discusses the study regarding the effects and implications of pornography to an individual's mental health. Most of the scientific evidence is derived from the study of university students. The result indicated that pornography does little harm to mental health and cannot be held responsible for initiating anti-social sexual behavior in those not already so predisposed. However, pornography can be offensive and embarrassing to an individual, particularly if unsolicited or too publicly displayed.
