Hi Violet,

Do you remember the article (I think published within the last year) describing a study that explored negative attitudes towards women held by men who use porn? I have been searching various blog archives, but haven’t been able to come up with it.

This sounds vaguely familiar, but I really have no idea. Anybody?

    The original article was at *Newsweek*, but I can’t find it anymore. (The link to *Newsweek* from the above *Daily Beast* article doesn’t work for me.)
