“Pornography is the theory; rape is the practice.” (Kutchinsky B. 1991) The word ‘pornography’ acquires and bears a constant negative connotation, the word itself encapsulates the abhorring behaviour of exploiting women’s rights and rape fantasies. With a long history, from the beginning of Playboy in the 1950’s (Sanburn, 2011), pornography has progressed hugely and is becoming more normalised and accepted.

In pornography the woman is shown as a commodity, "deprived of mind" sexual toy.

(J Homosex, 1991) When youths grow accustomed to media portrayals of sex without protection or consequences, and when these portrayals are not balanced out elsewhere with examples of what prevention looks like, the concern is that young people will belive such risk taking is expected and appropriate, and applying those norms in their sexual lives.
