The sexual arousal model emerged from research, predominantly controlled

experiments, on the immediate effects of viewing pornography. The studies reached the

unsurprising conclusion that sexual arousal was a common outcome, although the sex

of the viewer and the subject in the pornography were significant variables (Donnerstein et

al, 1987; Knudsen, 1988). More recent research has demonstrated that the form of

depictions have an effect on how arousing the pornography is – for example men are

more aroused by representations of coerced sex which suggest that the woman is enjoying it – and that a significant minority of men are aroused by sexualised images of

children (see Weaver, in Itzin 1993). Whilst the fact that pornography is sexually

arousing is not disputed, profound disagreement continues as to the meaning and

consequences of this fact. The positions range between arousal having direct that sexual access to children and young people is used as a power resource between

men; to promote economic, political and social interests which either they already share

in common, or which may be a direct outcome of the provision of children/young

people to abuse. Some forms of sexual exploitation of children, therefore, involve the

sexual use of children as a medium of exchange between adults. The children and

young people involved mayor may not be aware of the multiple uses to which they are

being put. If prostitution is defined purely in terms of economic gain then many of these

contexts in which sexual access to children and young people is used as a medium of

exchange between adults will be excluded.

fathers.

 

 

In the case of pornography and prostitution, it is feminist perspectives which have

focused on exploitation and harm. The competing frameworks have predominantly

drawn on the concepts of arousal, imitation, catharsis and fantasy.
