Are you dependent on porn?

Are you dependent on porn?

christyfuntime89 christyfuntime89
Porn addiction is often labeled as "the number one addiction no one's talking about." It seems most people in my age group (the around 30 crowd) especially, can't enjoy their sex life without it. They not only depend on it when masturbating, they need it when having sex with a partner. Some of them even watch it on their phones at work!

Do you feel porn has taken over your love life? Do you see it as an absolute necessity for arousal, climaxing, etc. or is it just a "once it a while" type deal? Or perhaps you don't need it at all?

Sometimes I love some good and inspiring porn to accompany my solo session - not all the times, but when the mood is right, it works like a charm.

We talk a lot about the porn we're watching, for example, this month - it's a flirty and playful conversation and a fun way for us to find out what's on each others' mind.

We've wondered who it'll feel like to watch some porn together, but we've never tried yet. We like different genres, which, I'm afraid, can be a bit of an issue. I'm guessing because I have no idea

BTW, there's also a concept about porn I find amusing - the post-porn "shame". I've had it many times, and I'm sure I'm gonna have it again. It's a feeling of shame - even shock - you experience after you're done masturbating and have an orgasm, but the porn video goes on and you glance at it. The "horny blindness" passes, and you see clearly what kind of crap you've been watching. And then you start questions yourself - am I really this gross? Why are they making these faces? How did I get here? Ah, this spiral gets me almost every time.

In my opinion, porn can be inspiring and help to improve sexual life. I watch it from time to time and sometimes can derive there new ideas, moves and techniques to spice up and diversify my sexual activity
I don't see anything bad in watching pornography until it doesn't create negative effects or become life-altering addiction.

I wouldn't say that I'm completely dependent on it. We've watched some porn together a few times, but it's not necessary for us to get it on when we're together. I'm a lot more crazy and into porn than she is, and I most definitely prefer it when going solo !

Oh yes that post-porn shame is all too real for me. And I've been watching it for a very, very long time! Sometimes I think I've become too dependent on it though. I try a solo session without it and nothing ever comes of it.

It's always so interesting to me that a lot of times what we watch in porn we would never think of doing in real life. But I guess that's thing of it-porn is fantasy. A lot of it isn't meant to be a reflection of real life or attempted in real life. The very few people I knew who decided to act on their porn fantasies greatly emphasized the disastrous impact it had on both their lives and relationships.

I agree that there's nothing wrong with watching it, provided it doesn't create negative effects, etc. But I have noticed that so many people can't go without it, and it looks like it's starting to cause problems in people's lives. For me, being as I've never been in a relationship or had sex before, I worry that it has skewed my idea of sexuality, and maybe that's why I'm partially afraid to resume dating.

That's good to hear you don't need it to be together. I love hearing that. I've met couples who can't get aroused unless they're watching it. There's nothing wrong with that of course until you're each watching something different and become so engrossed you forget the other person is there. Kind of defeats the purpose of being intimate with someone IMO.
