Abstract

Sexually deviant pornography is available across many mediums but most specifically, the internet. A type of deviant pornography, “snuff porn”, or videos depicting murder for the purpose of sexual gratification, was examined. Two groups of 42 control participants solicited from a college campus and a test group to Mathematics Skill, Knowledge, and Concepts By: Emily Crocker The focus of this study is to address how elementary and early childhood pre-service teachers rate their mathematics confidence based on their past experiences and attitudes towards mathematics. By examining data from five semesters of survey distribution to pre-service teachers at a small state university, the author was able to study how mathematics confidence is correlated to several different categories of mathematics understanding, including mathematics skill, knowledge and concepts. ~~~ Sexually Deviant Pornography: Effects of Prolonged Exposure and the Presence of Sadistic and Psychopathic Traits By: Victoria Dansereau Sexually deviant pornography is available across many mediums but most specifically, the internet. A type of deviant pornography, “snuff porn”, or videos depicting murder for the purpose of sexual gratification, was examined. Two groups of 42 control participants solicited from a college campus and a test group of 58 men who responded to an online survey posted on snuff pornography websites. Participants completed five self-report questionnaires assessing empathy, perceptions of love and sex, rape myth acceptance, sadistic tendencies, narcissism, psychopathy, and Machieviellism. They also reported their preferred pornography websites and genres. Results indicated that snuff porn users reported lessened empathy and viewed pornography with sexually violent themes. These results suggest that that viewing snuff pornography could affect men’s empathy overtime or that the snuff porn market is attractive to those who lack empathy in general.
