Original Abstract
This study applied the theory of planned behavior (TPB) to investigate the psychological determinants of using sexually explicit material (SEM) in sex therapy. Self-report data regarding perceived advantages/disadvantages, injunctive and descriptive norms, motivation to comply, self-efficacy, facilitators/obstacles, and intention to using SEM were measured among 59 Belgian sexologists using an online survey. Multiple linear regression analyses showed that 51% of the variance in intention and 41% in SEM use were explained by the model, with perceived advantages and descriptive norms representing the main determinants. The results highlight the need to consider various types of SEM for treating different clinical cases.
