Some women have serious problems with pornography use, but the percentage is small, suggests a recent study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
The study involved 485 German women who ranged in age from 18 to 77, with an average age of 26 years. Most were students.
The women answered questions about their pornography use and their sexual experiences.
About 88% said they did watch pornography, and over half said they did so for less than 30 minutes each week.
Three percent of the women were considered to have "highly problematic" pornography use.
