5 Reasons Why Watching Porn is Good for Your Relationship

posted by LSB March 3, 2020 3 Comments

We are very much for watching porn in our relationship. That being said it isn’t a staple in our bed either. Like most things in life, moderation is key. I may be a sex blogger and review a lot of sex toys but they don’t live in our bed either.

Early on in our relationship, I wasn’t so keen I must admit. It is quite a long time ago now so I can’t speak 100% accurately but if memory serves me, I hadn’t watched it in other relationships, it wasn’t my norm. My OH had and back then, it made me feel rather inadequate that he wanted to watch other women. I know I am not alone in feeling that. Realistically though, it isn’t really any different than watching a sex scene on a movie – chances are the only difference is a lot of bad acting, on the porn movie instead!

Thankfully since then, the porn industry has changed quite a bit and the internet is full of decent porn. Ethically made and genuine orgasms. More importantly, nearly every topic that floats your boat is available. Watching Porn is good for your relationship.

 

5 Reasons Why Watching Porn is good for your relationship

 

Gives you new ideas

We enjoy watching porn for new ideas. I am pretty certain we have done nearly every position you can imagine, realistically though there is always some way to adjust a leg or an arm to change up sensations felt. When you are together a long time, think over 10 years or so, it is easy to get into a ‘routine’, good sex doesn’t magically happen, it takes work and new ideas can help.

Visually pleasing

I must admit that heading kinda made me grin. yes, 90% of the time it is visually pleasing. it isn’t always. Watching porn and finding content that is visually pleasing to you both will take time and in the meantime, there is a huge chance you will come across stuff that really isn’t for you. We are quite lucky in this regard as quite a lot of stuff that isn’t my yum, isn’t his either but to discover this, we watched quite a lot of different genres and spoke about it.

It is really important to voice opinions on what gets you off and ask your partner theirs, which bring me on to point 3

A reason to voice your thoughts

Say, for example, your OH is really into, erm I dunno, spanks during sex and you are kinda keen but aren’t sure. Use that as an opportunity to watch porn that features that and judge your gut feelings on what you see. It may take a few turns, but use it as a chance to see what it is all about and perhaps have a demonstration afterwards.

We both discovered very much we are not into gaggy blowjobs, yanno the spitty, choking on his cock kind. While it is something we enjoy doing together, very much not to extremes you watch, watching it on porn helped us voice thoughts on the subject.

Great way to help foreplay

Hellllll yessssssss!!!!

Watching folk getting it on certainly gets me off. It gets us both off. We both enjoy watching porn, as a couple and separately. It isn’t something we do regularly. We did, however, recently watch quite a bit of porn recently in preparation of this post and it has reminded us both much fun it can be, I’ll explain in my final topic why.

Sometimes with the stresses of everyday life, family and kids it can be hard to ‘get in the mood’. Throwing on some porn can help, encourage arousal. It can be sometimes hard, excuse the pun, to get in the mood – watching folks get it on helps.

Act it out

I am leaving my favourite reason till last because it most definitely my favourite way to watch porn. Before I explain, please try to remember that usually the people you are watching, this is their job, so please don’t feel disheartened if you haven’t got the stamina of a small pony, there’s quite a big chance there has been some form of sexual enhancer used to desensitize them or perhaps they work out to be that flexible and putting themselves into a crab is a regular to them as it putting the kettle on.

It isn’t a competition. It is a sexual aid. To be enjoyed. It should be fun.

We enjoy acting out the scenes and trying to keep up with the couple we are watching. It usually ends up with us tangled up in a ball, my foot in his face and us laughing. But it is fun! Of course, by act it out, I could also mean create your own, which we have also done and got off watching it back. Also, equally fun.

I wouldn’t really recommend that bit though unless you 1 million per cent have trust in each other because no one wants a revenge porn case against em.

So that leaves me with the question – Do you think watching porn is good for your relationship? If so, why? And even more so, if you don’t think watching porn is good for your relationship – why?

An online interactive porn site, that allows you to interact with the creators or ‘Swaggers’. Most of the work featured on there is by amateurs, who have profiles that allow them to create ‘stories’ similar to Insta and flix. The site uploads free content daily, however, you also have an opportunity to purchase your own customized videos too, using diamonds, SWAG currency! Diamonds can be used to buy longer Flixs and chat to other swaggers. One feature, we really enjoyed about SWAG was how secure the site is. Once you create a profile, a code is emailed to you, every time you access the site, meaning that no one can access your profile without having access to your emails. We hadn’t come across this before and found it really assuring our profile was protected when we weren’t accessing it.

I tend to watch porn when I masturbate, and when we watch porn together, we always use it as foreplay 😉
Great post!

Great post. Maybe we should try watching porn again. The “get in the mood” argument got me you know with having a job and a small mini-me running around all day. Lately we are getting into making our own videos which is also quite fun. Although watching them is sometimes rather hilarious than sexy 😉

I love watching porn with my man – it makes me feel included – sounds weird but it does and we compare the kinds of porn we both like – I have to say mine can be way dirtier than his lol
