Why Do We Need to Watch Porn?

Watching porn is a normal thing. It adds thrills to our lives.

It relieves stress

Porn is a great way to relieve stress. It is much better than, for example, drinking alcohol or smoking. Scientists have proven long ago that endorphin and oxytocin (hormones of happiness and love) are increased after watching porn films (thanks to getting an orgasm). Isn’t it nice? Agree that this way of getting a little happiness is pretty simple and enjoyable.

It teaches

Watching porn is the best way to deal with complexes and prejudices. Good porn may become a good teaching material for both men and women, and fundamentally change your attitude to sex. If you want to try something new but don’t know what exactly — get ideas from these films. Also, you can understand what kind of sex excites you watching different categories on the sites. For example, it may turn out that you are interested in BDSM or lesbian porn. Maybe it's worth trying this in life?

influence of pornIt is excellent prelude

It may be an excellent beginning of sex and an unusual prelude. But sexologists recommend watching porn for this purpose no more than once a week. Otherwise, you may get addicted and even depend on your excitement from watching porn. And it will be difficult to have sex without it.

It excites

Nothing excites us more than watching the naked bodies that have sex. If you want to get excited quickly or you can’t get a start for some reason, you just need to turn on porn and it will do its job.

It opens new opportunities

You can learn new poses and see how they can be organized when watching porn movies. Also, porn may help in organizing group sex, lesbian sex or threesome sex. You will see how a group of people can have sex at the same time and learn all the pros and cons of the various poses that you liked in the past. Porn will help you become a perfect lover.

It cheers up

If you get bored, you can cheer yourself up by watching a porn movie. Invite your girlfriend and spend the evening watching an erotic film. These films cheer up and excite. And you will have pleasant memories not only from a film, but also from sex.

It is like a drug

The more you watch, the more you want. And this is one of the most important things. While watching porn there is a burst of dopamine in the body (the so-called pleasure hormone) as well as during sex. So, the more you watch piquant films, the more you want to watch them again and again in order to achieve sexual satisfaction.

Although, there some negative effects:

It affects the brain

How does porn affect the brain? Pornography is an easily accessible pleasure and it is rapidly becoming a habit due to this fact. Scientists note that a person experiences pleasure during the achievement of the goal that is manifested through the hormone dopamine.

The brain understands that it is much easier to reach the culmination by watching pornography than by real sex when you have to think not only about yourself but about a partner as well.

porn watching It disorientates

Porn disorients us in sex. There are, basically, beautiful people with good bodies in a porn life. Beautiful women have big, resilient breasts and men are just handsome. After watching porn, women and men believe that only such people have to be their lovers. And they also try their best to be like porn actors. But it should be remembered that there are men and women who like absolutely different people. It is not necessary to be like a porn star.

It reduces sensitivity

Porn films are often not made for the faint of heart. You may become invincible to everyday sex after watching some types of porn. If you are excited only while watching movies of the BDSM category or group sex, then, in fact, there is a probability not to be excited during sex with your sex partner, because there is a certain habit in the brain of starting up only after looking at the crowd of good-looking women or men in latex suits.

It leads to dependence

Studies at Stanford University have shown that sex life of about 200 thousand Americans directly depends on porn. Indeed, if you are used to watching porn before every sexual act, then there is a danger that your partner will simply not excite you. This is how porn affects relationships. So don't let your imaginations carry you away. After all, sex is much more interesting in real life.

It turns sex into masturbation

Sex becomes a means of self-satisfaction. It is focused on your pleasure and ceases to be a means of self-giving and mutually satisfactory intimacy.

It becomes a reason of jealousy

A person who you like will not be happy when finding out that you regularly masturbate looking at other people. Your better half may begin to be jealous, may compare themselves with them, and may take offense at you for the fact that you spend more time on actors on the screen than on your lovers.

It may lead to a breakup

One researcher conducted a study of the behavior of men and women who are in the relationships. The age of the volunteers was 18-34 years and the specialists studied the number of quarrels in couples during the experiment, the satisfaction of partners in sex, and the probability of betrayal. It turned out that more than 76% of men and 34% of women watch porn alone being in a relationship. There are fewer quarrels and a lower probability of betrayal in those couples where no one of the partners watches porn videos. It is recommended to watch porn together with a partner if sexual satisfaction doesn’t come.

It should be noted that not all scientists say that adult films may become a problem in the couple's relationship. On the contrary, some suggest that it is necessary to watch porn when their own “sex drive” is lost. However, experts agree that frequent watching of pornography may become an alarm bell for couples and force them to reconsider their relationship and correct mistakes.

Why Do People Watch Porn?

health sex lifeThey need to satisfy sexual desire when there are no significant others nearby

Sexual satisfaction is one of the basic human needs. Harmony is necessary for both joy and health of the hormonal system. Any problems in this area may lead to a bad mood, neuroses, illnesses, and deterioration of external attractiveness.

They want to find new ideas

If a woman always knows what she wants from sex at the intuitive level, then a man can understand this only with experience. He learns new poses, ways of satisfying and role-playing games from porn. It is like he gets inspiration. If a relationship is normal, then he will implement all experiments in life. Everything depends on a woman in this situation — whether she can meet the wishes of her lover or not. It is proved that by supporting at least one partner's initiative, a woman will help strengthen relations and will make a man more open.

They want to prepare for a special event

Some women and men watch porn in order to get a playful mood for the upcoming event. Someone goes to the club with a definite purpose. Others wait for their lover at home and prepare a special evening. Someone prepares for an important meeting when a relationship moved to another level: a small dose of excitement received at home helps overcome the excitement and focus on the main thing.

They want to make their fantasies come true

It also happens that certain desires don’t find realization in the sexual life for various reasons: you hesitate to say something, your partner doesn’t support you, etc. This pushes some people to watch pornographic videos where these fantasies are realized by at least someone else.

They want to add spice to the relationships

Sexual life becomes boring after a long time of a relationship. And you will not improve it even changing the poses or furnishings. Therefore, some couples sometimes relax watching pornographic videos. Looking at other bodies, a couple (or a man and a woman separately) gets new emotions, new sensations that allow them to get a dose of completely new sexual excitement and, of course, share it with their partners.

They want to compensate for their sexual dissatisfaction

Sometimes our desires in the sexual sphere are unusual. Such deviations as frotteurism (the desire to touch other people's genitals under clothes) or voyeurism (the desire to spy on someone else's sex) are not just fantasies. People have to live with it. No matter how much society condemns this, the desire will unlikely decrease. And if such person is in a relationship, it is fraught with big problems not only in sex but in the relationships in general. Sometimes this is exactly what pushes to watch porn — sexual dissatisfaction needs at least some way out.

As you can see, there are different situations. Watching a porn film is not always connected with the wild perverted essence, as an ardent crusader against porn may think.

A person who watches porn is often judged. But it seems that a greater threat to society is a person with the suppressed sexual desire than a person who likes watching porn movies. In our opinion, the main thing is not to rush to extremes: don’t replace your sex life with this, and, of course, don’t compare yourself and your partner with porn actors. We don’t incline you to watch porn and don’t dissuade you from this. We want you to better understand your desires and needs, including sexual. And sometimes a porn film should be watched in order to understand that you really don’t like watching it, for example.
