Watching porn doesn't mean he's dissatisfied with his sex life.

If your desire is to have a true soul partnership, then no subject is "taboo" to discuss. When fear shows up within a partnership, walking through that paper tiger of fear and communication will create deeper intimacy every single time.

If you know your partner is looking at porn, and this brings up negative emotions for you, here's what we'd like you to do:

* Don't put your head in the sand and ignore the issue. Ignoring how you feel about the issue will only breed resentment. You cannot be in a committed relationship and not be able to express how you feel about what is going on in the relationship. That resentment will build up over time and could doom the relationship.

* Be sure to communicate your feelings to your partner without blame. Attacking or blaming language will only shut him down. Follow the template below when communicating with him about this issue.

* Find out from your partner about what he likes about looking at porn. Maybe that can give you an idea about what, if anything, may be missing from your sexual relationship. 7 Sex Positions Men Love

* Know that what you're feeling is about you, not about your partner.

Just because your man is looking at porn doesn't mean that your relationship is over or even that you have a problem in your relationship. It is imperative to the health of your relationship to address your feelings with your man so that you are both on the same page, however.

Porn can be addictive, and there are many great resources to help someone who may have this problem. To determine if your man has a real problem with porn, please click here.
