Positive. Those who consistently watch violent porn are more likely to turn fantasy into reality. More violent porn stores mean that they must have customers to make sales profitable.

This finding is a positive correlation in that a change found in one variable also causes another change in the same direction. Therefore, the high cases of violence have cause the same aspect to influence pornographic industries.
