With porn use a form of pleasuring, for some, what could be better than a pleasure doubled? Still, despite its benefits to a sexual relationship, some couples struggle with what kind of role porn should have in their pleasuring, if any. Often, the value of using pornography for pleasure is lost in the great “is it right or wrong” porn debate. Yet, there are plenty of perks for those who are willing to “go there,” with porn occasionally or regularly eroticizing sex for secure, adventuresome couples.

 

1. It can put you in the mood.

The right kind of erotica can be an aphrodisiac for those needing a little something extra to boost desire. In focusing one’s attention on sex, body parts, and arousing activities, porn can have couples absorbed in a shared sexual experience in no time. Even those who are initially uncomfortable with porn use will have trouble denying the instinctual reactions one has in seeing such, with one’s senses immediately activating the sexual response cycle and wanting more.

2. It can boost sexual arousal.

The goal of porn is to arouse. Seeing others engaged in sexual pursuits can enhance your own sexual arousal, increasing blood flow to your genitals and having you more easily aroused. Testosterone production is stimulated as well, with males producing 10-15 times more of this hormone than females. In fulfilling almost every desire, porn can offer a new and exciting component to sex.

 

3. It can provide stress relief.

For those under time pressure or simply wanting a quickie, the sexual stimulation porn provides can lead to immediate gratification. With that, the body can relax and unwind.

 

4. It can be educational and empowering.

While certainly no substitute for a quality sexuality education class, lovers can learn ‘tricks of the trade’ from porn, relating to the sexual activity. Whether viewing a new sexual position, technique, or role play scenario, couples can feel more confident in gaining a little bit of know-how and in feeling that they’re being given permission to engage in said sex act. The porn actors make it seem okay.

 

5. It can play on your voyeuristic tendencies.

Porn allows couples to safely and legally observe others having sex while still feeling a bit naughty. The illusion of power and control, namely in the materials being easily attainable and porn users feeling like they ultimately have an upper hand in what will be enjoyed, are other elements that lovers can get off on in becoming voyeurs of sorts.

 

6. It can be sexually reaffirming.
