Does porn put you or your partner in a perpetual state of fantasy.

There is something primal and raw about porn. It either brings out the carnal erotic/sexual needs, or makes you feel like all those super cool, amazing, highly-skilled moves you have perfected throughout the years … are not that amazing after all. Women are more likely to watch porn these days, as it has pretty much integrated itself in our everyday visuals. Whether it's a movie on Lifetime or a music video on MTV, porn and its effects on our society are everywhere. Girls dress skimpier, singers emulate sexual acts in their performances, and you cannot go to a club or bar without experiencing those chicks that pretend to be gay and make out with each other for attention. And trust me in L.A. that happens everyday in a bar or club, hell it probably happens at the mall, library, market, shoe store, school … OK, I'll stop. Back to the topic at hand … Here is the question of the hour: Does watching porn help or hinder your relationships?

Porn can have many effects on your relationship. It can be a teaching tool, it can be a mood enhancer, it can be an inhibition breaker, it can be fun, erotic, and sexy. But porn can also put you or your partner in a perpetual state of fantasy.
