It was found that cadets were exposed to pornographic materials in forms like magazines, tabloids and films. Pornographic magazines and tabloids was the highest (m=4.47) because they were cheaper, easy to purchase and available to all. Cell phone pornography was least used (m=3.90) because not all cell phones have video functions. Cadets usually view pornographic videos secretly for the fear of being caught by the school authorities.

The effect of pornography on the physical aspect of the cadet's personality was their becoming conscious on good body structure as an attraction towards the opposite sex. "Looking macho is an asset for them" (m=3.89) and "looking clean and tidy" got the lowest mean (m=3.53) but still interpreted as high level implying that they become conscious to become better looking towards the opposite sex.

The effect of pornography on the emotional aspect of the cadet's personality was the strong desire to indulge in sexual activity which implies that pornographic materials awakened their sexual desires and that they become active as their bodily urges were very strong. On the social aspects of the cadet's personality, they felt socially accepted by their peers as they view pornographic materials. 

On the effect of the pornography on the spiritual aspect, result revealed that they were morally affected by their acts. Majority of the respondents had interest in becoming as acolytes (m=4.04) and to attend masses (m=3.91) to ease out their conscience becoming.

There were significant relationships between the level of awareness on pornography and the cadet's physical aspect and none with the emotional, social, mental and spiritual aspects.
