Habits of Consulting Material with Sexual Content on Internet in a Sample of University Students. Internet has shaped a new framework of socialization that affects sexuality and interpersonal relationships, especially in adolescents and young adults. The overall aim of this study was to describe the access and display patterns of online sexual material among university students and to analyze inter-gender differences. Participants were 486 university students, 71.4% female, aged between 18 and 30 years. A questionnaire developed specifically for the research was administered to explore the patterns and habits of use of sexual material through social networks and the internet. We found significant gender differences in age of onset viewing sexual content material, time spent, the reasons for access and preferences for specific platforms -i.e., a gender-differential pattern of use and consumption of sexual material on the internet. Males starts earlier than females, spends more time viewing this type of material and shows a greater preference for specific platforms. Knowing the patterns of use and habits of this material is fundamental to be able to prevent situations of misuse and abuse, as well as to design preventive programs on the risks of sexual behavior in young adults.
