BAUMEL, Cynthia Perovano Camargo; GUERRA, Valeschka Martins; GARCIA, Agnaldo  and  ROSARIO, Alini Gusmão. Pornography Consumption and Romantic Relationships: a Systematic Review (2006-2015). Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.1, pp. 1-19. ISSN 1983-8220.

This systematic review aims to investigate pornography definitions used by researchers and the effects of the consumption of this material in romantic relationships. We searched for theoretical or empirical papers published in Brazilian and international journals indexed in the DOAJ, SciELO and Scopus electronic platforms, which contained, in any part of the text, the terms "pornography" and "relationship" in Spanish, English or Portuguese. This search resulted in 433 documents that, after application of the inclusion and exclusion criteria, resulted in 45 papers. Within the sample, sexually explicit material seems to be the most accepted definition of pornography. Regarding the perception of negative aspects of pornography consumption on the relationship, the following categories were listed: health damage, relationship impairment, violence against women and social and cultural aspects. In relation to the positive aspects, the categories surveyed were: sexuality, personal development and benefits to the relationship. The possible impacts of pornography consumption in relationships are still quite vague and ambiguous.

Keywords : Pornography; Relationship; Couple; Sexuality; Review.
