Did you know that 59% of Muslim youth view porn? In case you missed it, last month we released “Silent Struggles: Preliminary Findings on Pornography Among American Muslim Youth.” We decided to take it one step further and translate the report into an informative infographic.

This resource is meant to be a conversation starter about porn use among Muslim youth. To help reduce stigma and get the conversation going, pass this infographic along to friends and family. To provide help and hope for those struggling with porn, share The FYI’s Porn Resources here.

*This data represents pornography consumption rather than addiction. Pornography consumption refers to the viewing of pornography, in which the urge to watch is not compulsive and does not impede one’s life. On the other hand, addiction refers to compulsive viewing of pornography that negatively impacts one’s life, and users experience withdrawal when they go for extended periods without viewing it. The urge is never satisfied and interferes with one’s daily routine, ultimately changing one’s brain functioning and affecting other behaviors (Orford, 2001). The data analyzed did not provide sufficient information regarding pornography addiction. Thus, we focused on pornography consumption.

The infographic is based on data from the following research studies:
