Public opinion research on sexually explicit videos

Public Opinion Research on Sexually Explicit Video...
01 Jun 2002

The Office of Film and Literature Classification with Helena Barwick again consulted with members of the public on their attitudes to sexually explicit material. Members of the public were asked to interpret the phrase degrading, dehumanising and demeaning as found in the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification Act 1993 and think how this applied to sexually explicit material.

While this research revisited ground covered in earlier research, in this project each consultation group was shown the same clips of sexually explicit material. The research findings compare different responses to particular clips and, for example, look at which clips the audience had a more positive response to.
