Watching Porn Can Lead To Three Relationship Issues

Despite being almost outlawed in some states…porn is still very popular. But watch out if you are in a relationship!

Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, Utah and Virginia have all outlawed Pornhub…but it is still the 10th most visited site visited in the US and Canada.  When it happens, there is a surge in demand for virtual private network (VPN) services.  Texas alone had a 234% increase the day after a new state law took effect. Porn has been around for thousands of years and before a mass produced bible, there were massed produced naughty pictures. Some 66% of men watch vs 39% women, leading it to be another male centric industry.  But, to much watching porn can lead to three relationship issues.

Porn has morphed significantly in the last 20 years. From print and “in person” video places and strip joints to online.  And since 2019, OnlyFans, where anyone can not only upload homemade videos, they can monetize it.  The era of “authenticity” is here including all body shape and interests. While there has been significant research on the effects porn, a study reported from Psychology Today argues when porn is pervasive or becomes key in a person’s life, it could produce major  problems.

Sexual Satisfaction

According to a study, the more someone view porn, the more they need to be satisfied. Surveying over 1,500 young adults, it concluded despite the outside factors and gender, even infrequent use of porn leads to some sexual dissatisfaction. Consuming large quantities can create false expectations for everyone involved, making them think actual, in person sex, works just as it does in porn. To help with this, limit the amount of viewing.

Loneliness

Loneliness makes people turn to porn, and porn makes people more lonely, creating a two way relationship in which, no matter the order, each factor influences the other. A research that surveyed over 1,247 participants found porn use was significantly related to loneliness. Single men watched more porn than any other group, and loneliness could lead to porn addiction. These people who feel lonely turn to porn, which offers momentary relief but that later reinforces their feelings of being alone.

Relationship Stability

Another study conducted over 2,000 married individuals showed results suggest porn is capable of causing relationship breakups. People who started watching porn after entering a relationship had an 11% chance of a breakup compared to the 6% chance of non viewers of porn. These rates were much higher for younger people, where half of the 20 year olds ended up splitting.

Of course, all of this information is correlational. You can’t say with certainty watching porn means you’ll face all of these problems, but studies prove there’s some form of relationship between porn and stress, even if they can’t pinpoint the cause. It is always key to approach this with clear understanding between reality and fantasy.
