Does watching porn hurt your sex life?

Recent studies show that Americans are actually having less sex today as compared to 10 years ago. The statistics showcase a 19% decline on how often couples spend sexy time in the bedroom.

It is a bit surprising, since the present generation is said to be naturally more sexually liberated than the previous ones. The concept of casual sex translating into premarital sex which leads to the ever-increasing rates of teenage pregnancy.

One of the factors most relevant to the statistics is watching porn.

Over the years, porn videos have grown more popular for both men and women. Some people think of it as a harmless habit, but science shows otherwise.

Why would watching porn hurt your sex life, and how could it possibly do it?

  • You get used to the kinky images.

    Contrary to the popular belief that watching porn and other kinky stuff leads to a smashing sex life, it actually stops you from enjoying the real thing. Most porn videos are unrealistic and bordering on the extremes. This leads to unrealistic fantasies that leave you hanging when not satisfied.

     

  • Spending time watching porn means less, or absolutely no time for having real sex.

    This situation could be downright cruel to both parties. If you love watching porn and spend more time watching than doing it with your partner, you not only risk yourself to not having sexual desires anymore, but also cause stress to your partner.

 

  • Your sexual appetite is taken all by watching porn, leaving nothing left for the real thing.

    Porn sites today are like buffets with so many dishes to choose from. There’s just something for anyone, which can backfire when we choose to watch instead of making time for your partner. We use porn videos to destress, not knowing it harms our sex life in the process.

What should we do to make sure our habits wouldn’t affect our private time?

 

 

  • Lessen, if not cut the habit.

    It would be better to just go cold turkey and stop the habit, but if it not that hard to do so, make a conscious effort to lessen it.

 

  • Instead of watching porn, spend time with your partner.

    Spend time doing sexy time with your partner. Rekindle your relationship, set the mood, and create a sexy date only you can never do, and go from there.

  • If you feel like it, try watching it with your partner.

    This could be tricky, but some couples have proven how it could improve their sex life instead of doing harm. Do it together and see how it helps. If not, then relapse and get better.

Porn watching is not the only factor to consider why your sex life has been down the drain. There are far more reasons to know why, but it starts from there instead of nothing. Try your hardest to break the habit while it is not too late. Remember, great sex is one of every relationship’s strength. Make sure you make an effort to improve it and strengthen your connection in the long run.
