10 Perks To Porn In Your Relationship
With porn use a form of pleasuring, for some, what could be better than a pleasure doubled?

In depicting a wide array of people, situations, and sex acts, porn has practically something for everyone. And with that, pornography can help individuals, like those who are questioning their sexual orientation or bi-tendencies, to feel okay. Porn provides them with a safe, confidential outlet and opportunity to learn about all sorts of attraction and to feel perfectly normal in their attractions and experiences being okay.

 

7. It can positively impact your sexual attitudes and experiences.

Pornography can make for more enhanced sex for some people in some cases. Case in point: research published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior indicates that women get more out of porn that previously thought. Not only did participants report enhanced sex, but heightened attitudes toward sex and life in general. New sexual knowledge, experimentation, and increased arousal and ability to fantasize were the main reasons why.

 

Not surprisingly, research has also found that women often bring what they’ve seen in porn back to a relationship as a way to feel sexier and encourage sexual exploration. Some are into the idea of trying new things once they’ve seen pornographic images. For some, a whole new sexual persona is born.

 

8. It can help lovers get to a better place.

It isn’t unusual for a sex therapist or counselor to advise a couple to incorporate porn use if the aim is to redefine their sex life. In such cases, porn becomes an important tool for jumpstarting a struggling relationship. It may aid a couple longing to rekindle desire and become more imaginative in the bedroom. In being permission-giving, it can further act as a tool for inspiring sexual expression, if lovers are feeling challenged in this way.

 

9. It can provide illusions of a group sex experience.

While you may never want to go out and actually have a threesome or more-some, having sex while watching porn can create some of the feelings that can come from group sex. For some individuals, this can be exhilarating in feeling taboo or freeing. Some may even just like that porn provides an outlet for checking out other people, without inviting the same troubles and jealousies such attractions can cause in other situations.

 

10. It can be a celebration of the human body and sexual expression.

Some forms of pornography are a bit more erotic and sensual in their presentation, like films by Andrew Blake, capturing the beauty of the sexually active form. Others, like Candida Royalle’s flicks from Femme Productions, have story lines that focus more on the seduction and even romance of sexually engaging another. The plot aspect of such soft porn efforts, involving more realistic characters and sex in more loving relationships, can have couples relating to erotica in a whole new way.
