The participants in this study are males aged 19-24 years old. The experimental group made up of 20 individuals who are shown 10 minutes of food porn everyday for two weeks; the control group, also 20 individuals, is shown 10 minutes of bland images of food for the same period of time. Everyday five minutes after the exposure of images the participants rate their likelihood of stealing food using the Food-Steal-O-Meter scale. The study shows that after exposure to the food porn, young males are more likely to steal the food than the control group.

http://www.birdsong-peanuts.com/Methods and ProcedureForty young men aged 19-24 were randomly selected and divided into two separate groups. One being the control group and one the experimental group.

Both the participants in the control group and the experimental group were individually placed in identical simple white walled cubicles. There were no windows in the vicinity and the air was filtered. No scents were permitted in the area and electronic devices were asked to be turned off. The cubicles contained only the chairs of the participants and the computer screens were set to the experimental videos and images. The images and videos were shown to each participant for 10 minutes everyday at 3pm for two weeks. At the end of the two weeks the participants filled out a Steal-O-Meter survey.

The experimental group was instructed to watch the visually appealing images and videos of food(i.e. food porn) on their computer screens.

The control group was instructed to watch images and videos of bland food on their computer screens.

What acted as food porn for some, wasnt appealing to others. This could be due to social class, ethnicity, or cultural predisposition.

http://www.riverfronttimes.com/slideshow/food-porn-at-taste-of-st-louis-2009-28522415/In todays society imagery plays a huge role in advertising; the impact on society and the individuals exposed to such advertising is still fairly new and unknown. However, as a result of advertising and exposure to images of food in such a way that makes it look attractive, research showed the likelihood of young males committing acts of deviancy towards others foods is significantly increased. This is shown through the increase in individuals willingness to steal the food of others after being exposed to Food Pornography on a regular basis, while the control group showed significantly less likelihood to steal food after being shown images of less attractive images of food. No one likes g getting their food stolen.Summary
