7 Reasons Watching Porn Isn’t A Bad Thing

It’s obvious that watching porn is a pretty controversial topic here on Gurl. It seems like you guys either love porn (you watch it, you don’t mind if your BF watches it), or you’re totally against it (you think it’s demeaning, you think watching it could be considered cheating). But truthfully, guys, porn shouldn’t be your enemy. I can totally understand feeling uncomfortable with the idea of pornography (I used to, too!), but in reality, there are a lot of good things about watching porn.

We’ve discussed “porn for women” before, but I’ve always thought it was a stupid concept. Why does there have to be porn made specifically for women? Can’t women enjoy porn just as much as men do without the stereotypes? Porn star and actor James Deen agrees. He recently discussed his thoughts on porn for women with Refinery 29 and I thought what he said was pretty great: “My theory on porn for women is it’s just porn. Why is there porn explicitly only for women? By saying there needs to be porn for women, you’re basically isolating women as a gender and saying, ‘This is how women should think. This is how their sexuality should be.’ It’s counterproductive (from what I understand) to the equality movement. Who says that one woman’s take on sexuality is the right way to think?”

That being said, here are 7 reasons watching porn isn’t a bad thing. If you do it, don’t be ashamed! If you want to try and you’re hesitant… let these reasons be your motivation.

Do you watch porn? Do you think watching porn is okay? Would you be cool with your BF watching porn? Tell me in the comments!

    These are all weak points when they are compared to the cons of porn. Yes, the people below have mentioned that it ruins relationships. But, if you are not in a relationship or not married like me there are other big problems. First off, porn does not make you relax, the orgasm affect does. The images get stamped in your brain and they flash like memories before you go to sleep. It damages your libido. You can’t get it up or ejaculate without porn if you have been doing it for years. Most women off camera have troubled lives, just do some research and you see how mistreated they are! The cravings and creativity get worse and worse to the point you watch the nastiest of the nasty porn. I never spent a dollar on it but it did hither my confidence in bed and in life. I started to look at women as potential sex mates rather than friends, etc…The only times it was a good thing is yeah it can be fun watching it with your girlfriend and that’s about it. Anyway, I’m glad that I put it behind me and now I am more confident, focused, driven and a better person. Screw you porn.

    Okay here we go. First off all the ladies who say “it doesn’t matter” “every guy watches porn” “you’re over reacting” UM. Just stop. The women who defend this obscenity should be ashamed of them selves. First off us women need to stick together so obviously if it bother one of us enough to ask the question if they should be worried about porn, other woman’s answer shouldn’t be justifying that bullshit. That’s disgusting. Not one person can explain how you’re suppose to be okay with you’re boyfriend/husband/whatever looking at another woman touch her self in order to get off. This is the most pathetic act men have yet to do. They have wonderful loving spouses who satisfy them and if they don’t and there’s issues with there sex life that can’t be resolve maybe the resolution is finding someone else you respect enough to not drool over disgusting pictures/videos of other woman in order to “satisfy” your self just bc your not getting what you want from the person your with, obviously if that man really cares about you he wouldn’t need to turn to another woman just to get off. If you are not satisfying enough then it’s time to move on and I know what you ladies are thinking.. How can you say this.. To break up over porn. FUCK YES. Bc if your “man”, let’s call him that 😒 needs to turn to ANOTHER WOMAN. Yes ladies that is another real woman who exist, breathes the air you do and walk, talks, and laughs just like you and he’s fantasizing over HER while your there in person for HIM?! And you’re still there willing and having sex with him!!! How is that not a red flag that you obviously don’t mean enough to him that he can’t even have that much respect for you to not fantasize about another woman, that’s just you not being good enough! Worse part, and really think long and hard about this one. SHE DOESNT EVEN KNOW HE EXISTS AND HE STILL TURNS TO HER RATHER THAN YOU!!!! That’s the most pathetic part of it all! While you’re beautiful selves are there worrying about looking good and pleasing him he’s there in a corner touching him self to a woman that could carless if he died in a hole tomorrow. You need to really see your self worth and ask your self how little he must think of you that he can so easily turn to another woman bc he’s not “getting what he wants from you” fuck what he wants! What about what we want??! What about wanting an honest loving man who only has eyes for you and desires you enough that if he has needs he will turn to YOU! And if you are not in the mood the love between you two should be enough for this “man” to wait till your ready!!! Respect your self women. Don’t be those nasty whores your men watch. Be the strong, beautiful, self respecting woman you want your daughters to be. We need to take the advice our mothers have always given us about self respect and meaning more bc ladies you are worth so much more than that. You will find a man who desires you and only you and would never disrespect you ESPECIALLY for another woman. Those men are just proving to you that you will never be good enough, he will NEVER appreciate you. you decided whether or not you want to live that way and be viewed in such a worthless way.
    -I’m just turn 18 and starting to see how blind people are to the world. PLEASE READ. And I’m always opened minded if you feel you can explain to me other wise tell me PLEASE.

    I watch Porn 1 every 2 weeks just to Help erection and comfort. But people who 24/7 will cause it to take over and when you find that special person I’m sure they won’t stay long. However watch Porn. Not for the sake. For enjoyment. And even for tips on sexual positions.

  • Excessive porn watching Pornstars Sex Videos makes dudes terrible in bed a breaks their
    wieners. Anything in moderation is fine, but too much porn will break
    your penis and make you really lame in bed.

  • Well this is my opinion, it is not advisable in anyway to watch xnxx porn,I’ve watched porn for a some years now,trust me.
    life is not all about sex as we have made it look like and so are relationships not all about sex.We have to admit that Satisfaction as a man or woman cannot be found in sex or porn or anything sexually oriented.Satisfaction and fulfillment can only be found in Christ Jesus,yes i said it,Christ Jesus.I don’t actually get why we are always doing our best to run away from him just because of pleasure and yet we know deep within our hearts how much we are empty,you need Him,and He wants and Love you more done anyone or even you can.
    Please don’t criticize yet,Why don’t you just give Him a chance,Maybe just a week or two or better still a month,I know it will be worth that time,just try Him out.That is all I’m asking.
    Just ask yourself why i stopped watching porn after all the pleasure I got from it to follow Jesus,I really loved porn but I still gave it up for Him.What do you think I saw in Jesus?
    Please Just give Him a chance,it wont hurt.

    There are many pros to watching porn. First and most importantly, when you satisfy your sexual needs by masturbating to porn, the whole issue of unsafe sex is a moot point. Secondly, enjoying porn in the privacy of your own home enables you to avoid all the dangers you might encounter by going out late at night, sitting in a niteclub or sleazy movie theatre, or dealing with God only knows what by picking up the wrong person who could harm you in some way or steal from you. Third, you save a lot of money watching all the free pron available on the Internet and getting yourself off rather than spending money on drinks at a bar, people you meet, or gas to get there. Finally, you won’t find as many young, well hung, gorgeous guys anywhere else but on porn sites. This not only ensures a great deal of sexual eroticism, but may serve to inspire you to lose weight and get in shape so you meet guys like this and maybe even look like them someday (at least in your dreams Lol).

      Well, why don’t you just not do one night stands? lol What you’re saying is that either you watch porn, or you go have sex with a stranger, but this doesn’t have to be an “either or situation.” So your argument there is not too strong!
