||The purpose of this research was to extend current research regarding the use of sexual explicit Internet material to the sexualization of the male body, since research thus far has mainly focused on the female body. Based on data from the LISS panel of CentERdata among adolescents aged 12 to 21, it can be concluded there is no positive causal relationship between sexual explicit Internet use and the sexualization of the male body. More specifically, my research tentatively suggests it is more likely that more sexual explicit Internet use leads to less sexualization of the male body. Analyses furthermore show that the reasons why people use the Internet and people’s insecurity are not significantly related to this relationship. When controlling for social desirable responses when measuring accidentally encountering sexual explicit Internet material, my research shows there is no significant difference between a 6-item scale ranging from 1 to more than 4 times and a 6-item scale ranging from 1 to more than 7 times. My research shows there is no significant difference between asking respondents for the past 2 or 6 months they viewed films or videos of naked genitals or people having sex through the Internet.
