the research group has published two online surveys, one for people with masculine gender and one for people with the female sex, where the voice mail may answer questions about what they think about how sex looks like.
There are also questions about what sexual habits the voice mail, how much porn he looks at and you are also requested to report the measure of sex.
the Goal: to create a picture of how unhappy or happy the swedes are with how their gender looks like, and whether there may be any connection to how much porn that the individual is looking at.
then came Christian Rück conducted research on the diagnosis of body dysmorphic disorder, so-called imagined ugliness, where the individual perceives herself as ugly, in a way that prevents a normal life.
– We then noticed that there were many who felt bad about how their sex looked like, " says Christian Rück.
He believes that in these cases it becomes more difficult for individuals to understand what is ”normal”, something that can make emotions harder to manage.
Right in this matter are very evident to a rather one-sided picture, and uncertain sources. It has not so much to compare with, and then we believe that porn can have a major impact on the perception of how male and female gender should look like, says dr Christian Rück.
He perceive that among men it is most common to find that sex is for small, while it among women is most common to worry over that the labia minora are too large.
men's sex has been around a long time. But with a surgical procedure to diminish the women's labia is something that has come later and is an activity that is becoming increasingly common, according to Christian Rücks idea.
"If we look two decades back, it was nothing that existed, while now it is enough to check around on the internet to understand that it is quite widespread," he says.
so Far, the research group received over 200 responses. It is hoped that before the summer shall have received thousands of responses and then be able to terminate the study.
the Weakness with the online survey, " says Christian Rück, is that it is not certain that an answer group that corresponds to the population. The advantage of the who want to can go in and do the survey, is prone to answer all the questions, which is not mandatory.
"I think anyway that we will be able to get an idea of porrens importance of this phenomenon," he says.
