Men who viewed a lot of porn were likely to say that they became more critical of their partner’s appearance and lost interest in sex with their partner as a result.Today we’re talking about a topic that isn’t as fun as our usual creative date ideas and romance tips.And I’ll freely admit, we’re a little nervous to venture into these unfamiliar waters.Our intent is not to get on a soapbox or start a debate, but to really look at the effects pornography has on relationships and, specifically, marriage.We all have our own personal moral and religious views on the subject, but for the purpose of this article, we’re going to be mainly focusing on what scientific research, studies, and surveys have discovered about the link between pornography and marriage.In just the couple of months that we’ve been researching and preparing this post, we’ve been amazed at the different, opposing information that is being shared online. I don’t think anyone wants to put their marriage in jeopardy.The truth is, what society is telling us about pornography is totally different from what research is telling us. Here are just a few examples of what social media, magazines and newspapers have to say about porn…However, as we looked at the real research and studies done on pornography, we found very different information! In fact, we’ve heard from several readers that the only reason they “allow” porn in their marriage is to try to save or enhance it.Interestingly enough, twice as many women reported that their porn-watching spouses became more critical and that this criticism made the women less interested in sex.Researches have found that porn consumers eventually compare their spouse or partner and themselves to images of porn models.Sex tends to be impersonal, rushed, and “forced.” There’s no foreplay. Results showed that the more porn a man was exposed to, the more likely he was to prefer that women be submissive and subordinate to men. Research has proven that just two sessions of one-hour exposures of R-rated sexual entertainment change men’s attitudes toward women.They begin to objectify women and no longer see them as individually unique or valuable because of the demeaning manner in which women and sex are portrayed.
