Barb Brents (Sociology) co-authored the article "EXPOsing Men’s Gender Role Attitudes as Porn Superfans," which recently was published in Sociological Forum. The authors found that pornography fans were no less supportive of gender equality than the population as a whole and actually more supportive on a couple of questions. The results are explained in The Conversation, "How Male Superfans Really View Women."  Co-authors are Crystal A. Jackson, '03 BA Psychology, '07 MA Sociology, '13 PhD Sociology, now of John Jay College-City University of New York; Aleta Baldwin, '06 BA Women's Studies, now of the University of Texas, San Antonio; and Paul Maginn of the University of Western Australia.
