    be done to improve the work environment, that's a no-brainer.

    But to say it will reduce sexual assault seems like a huge stretch (e.g., based on findings that easy availability of pornography tends to reduce not increase sex-related crimes, etc)

      There have been many studies on the subject, and the results have been very mixed.  There've been so many studies that there have been several metastudies.  More metastudies than not seem to suggest a link between porn viewing and aggressive sexual behavior, especially viewers of "violent" pornography, but even the metastudies are out on this one.

      Unfortunately, as with all science, many people will just latch onto whatever single study meets their preferred perspective and ignore everything else.
