Is Porn Using Yours And Your Partner’s Life In A Negative Way?

The topic of pornography and relationship can understandably be a touchy subject. Many people believe that porn affects sexual functioning in both men and women. Some even claim that porn leads to more promiscuity in men and a desensitization to sex for women. While much of this is probably true, there are also many benefits to porn and relationship that women report getting from their partner. In fact, porn can actually be a positive influence in a relationship and has been shown to help strengthen relationships. Here are some benefits of porn for women.

Women who have not had any sexual experience are especially vulnerable to being influenced by porn. While research typically indicates that men report viewing more pornography than women, it’s still very common for women to say that they watched porn at all, even if they weren’t actively having sex at the time. This is mostly because women are much more likely to view sexual material at a leisurely pace. Busby & Webber’s (2021) which surveyed over 800 women in the UK found that over half of them admitted to having viewed porn at some point, but the majority of them said that their viewing of porn was not to fulfill a sexual need, but rather to occupy time and create excitement for sex with their partner.

Over the last few years, Busby & Webber’s (2021 study found that porn use had an impact on sexual satisfaction for both men and women. The research did not look at the impact porn use had on couples in long term relationships. However, the author of the study did conclude that there was a positive relationship between porn use and dissatisfaction with sex among married couples. The results were supported by other studies including a study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology, in which nearly half of the participants in a sample of 1000 said that pornography was a negative influence on their sex lives. Of course, the majority of people will view porn in a very different light than the two mentioned above.
