Academic study of pornography concerns the study of pornography in accordance with the scientific method.

It became popular in American academia in the late 20th century. James Atlas was one of the first to point out the trend in a 1999 article on the subject, which included an interview with Linda Williams, who is known for an early study in this field, Hard Core: Power, Pleasure (1989).
