Watching porn is what narcissists love to do the most, a new study has found.

New York: Watching porn is what narcissists love to do the most, a new study has found, adding that the more Internet porn people watch, the more narcissistic they tend to be.

Earlier research shows that the more control narcissists have over sex, the more gratifying the experience tends to be.

"The use of internet pornography offers this control," researchers wrote.

For the study, researchers from the University of Houston, Clear Lake, tested narcissism levels on participants using a standard questionnaire.

They found that the higher respondents scored on the narcissism scale, the more likely they were to say they had ever watched pornography.

Among the people who watched porn, higher narcissism was correlated with more hours watching internet porn.

"The online-porn viewer is able to click around until he or she finds exactly their idealised sexual imagery," they concluded.
