Girl-- your guy is going to watch porn... Get over it.

Thatsamazing

This shouldn't take too long.

So something I've noticed with mind-numbing frequency while here on GaG

is how often there are posts from females where they elucidate (poorly) their concern that their husband/boyfriend/guy is watching porn, or has watched porn, or porns all over the porned porn. Porn everywhere. Porning the place up. And they think that porn is bad. These questions are usually finished, al terminado, with "What should I do?" or some similar variant.

Girl-- your guy is going to watch porn... Get over it.

...Yawn.

Um... you don't *DO* anything, other than get over yourself.

This is part of a really unhealthy mindset whereby people think they are supposed to, or are even allowed to, own their partner and what their partner wants, does, and desires. Even sexually.

Girls... your guy is going to watch porn if he wants to. It really doesn't matter if ahead of time you let him know that you don't like it "and he did it anyway." Again, refer back to the ^ last paragraph. You don't own him, or his eyesight. Your personal insecurities are not his fault. If it's really that big a deal for you, yes, PLEASE break up with him, please dear God, so that he can find a different girl who is not batshit crazy and overbearing and controlling.

It's normal and natural for people to want to have sex with, and be sexually attracted to, many other people rather than just one, and yes, that often is why we watch porn. Get over it. It's human nature. YOU may not feel that way (though many girls do also watch porn), and bully for you. Obviously, if he's watching porn, he doesn't feel that way.

And accept the obvious truth: You aren't going to find a guy who actually allows you to dictate whether he watches porn or not. Enjoy being alone, if you do think you can do that.

Girl-- your guy is going to watch porn... Get over it.

    I honestly don't see the issue of watching porn that some people have... I mean, so long as they aren't excessively doing it to the point that it is either preventing them from getting things done, or ignoring the significant other to watch it, then why not? It's just entertainment for the most part, an eye appeal for a momentary bout of pleasure. I'd actually much rather have my guy watch porn then go to a strip joint. At least this way he isn't physically tempted from an attainable being to cheat. Heck, I'd still watch porn if i was dating. Maybe even invite my guy to watch with me. To me, it's really no different then when you're watching a movie and a sex scene happens. What? Are you going to rush to the remote and fast forward? No! Because it's not a big deal. And if he gets his rocks off watching it? Eh, at least we can laugh about it lol. Most people feel that watching porn means that their significant other is emotionally cheatijng on them. When in actuality, whether male or female, the person watching isn't even focused on the individual their watching really, but the action of sex itself. It's hot! I don't care if big-boobed Barbie or Hugely hung Harry is on the screen, but their Amazon position thrusting is fucking amazing! Of course, this often gets me directed the dark side of pornhub, but that's another story lol. All in all, people need to relax with this issue and find that If they worry about things as little as watching porn, then maybe their relationship isn't as solid as they think. Maybe some soul searching is due...

      So, just how many 'porn-widows' show up here on GAG? Their man is jerking off to porn instead of doing her? Oh, it's still all great then, huh? Let us know how this works out for you.

    • @Brownseye57 As I stated in my post, it's a matter of convenience and control that makes it fine. I mean, any partner is going to have days where they may not be in the mood, busy, or too tired. Maybe said other is off somewhere else even. So if the scenario permits it, why not? But like I said again, if their watching is causing riffs in the relationship or is taking too much of their time away, then it becomes an issue. Sex is natural and fun, and watching it behind a screen is nothing. So if one wants to watch it go ahead. Much like when people like thriller movies. Doesn't mean they're going to go off robbing banks anytime soon. It's the same with porn, so long as you're not a preteen monkey about it, you're good. Doesn't mean their about to go off looking for big titted betty either. Anyone in a strong relationship isn't going to be so insecure enough to demand the other not watch porn. When in reality, porn is just entertainment. Now if said other is abusing it to be a creep, or goes out and cheat, then that's a whole new issue. And the relationship was doomed to begin with. But if you and you're partner are grown ass people, and communicate properly, have fun with it! Maybe even find tricks to do with each other to keep things spicy. Or watch it together. If I don't want to have sex when my partner does, or I'm too busy, I'd hate to have them feel pent up. So if he needs some material to get off, good on ya. Of course not everyone is ok with this, but I was only talking from my perspective on it. I even watch it, so where's the shame in him doing so to? But again, that's just me. If you're a guy who doesn't and you're partner doesn't either that ok too. Go at it! Or don't, that's up to you.

    First of all: Not all men watch porn.

    Secondly: Women watch porn too. I know that for a fact as a woman who's recovering from years of porn addiction. So it isn't just a male problem.

    Thirdly: It sounds like you're only using this rant to justify your jerking off to watching other people have sex.

    Fourthly: Porn isn't healthy, for any relationship or for any person. Again, speaking from experience.
    No one should make excuses for their behavior when they watch porn, or try to jusify it in any way. Men need to grow up, take accountability for their actions regarding porn, and seriously work to change. The same goes for women too.

    And lastly: I think you need to #getoverit

    The point is the balance and their behavior after that toward us or how we are treated even if we are liberal minded.
    What if some women are held to porn star looks and standards by an obsession.

    Otherwise realistically let me tell you women enjoy it more than you men. We replay it again and immerse ourselves in it.

  • TarrAva
    I have absolutely no issue with him doing it and watching porn. Actually, I endorse it. That way, I don't always have to be the victim of his fantasies whenever it suits him.

    However, where I have a major issue is when I do watch porn myself while playing with my various body parts alone and not asking him to participate, then I get the full offended attitude and pouting behavior.

    It seems that what is good for one is definitely not for the other. Women are still being stigmatized and judged for daring to watch porn without consent of their S/O, boyfriend or husband/partner. Why is that?

    So guys, watch as much porn as you want but let your girlfriend do the same without making a fuss about it or pouting and calling her a whore for imitating you. It is widely accepted that you do it, so grow up and don't judge the stronger gender for doing it too.

Proof that someone is stupid-- and the likelihood I will let them know that they are-- is if they use nothing but ad hominems and straw man fallacies to do it.

    I completely agree with you and seriously don't understand the girls who believe their man is cheating because they watch porn or that they shouldn't watch porn lol porn is literally just actors fucking in front of a screen lol the majority of people watch porn. Male and females. Masturbation is a very natural act and is good for you. And sometimes, you need to watch porn to help you with that lol i watch porn and so does my boyfriend. We even watch porn together when we are bored. Seriously not a big deal. Those girls who are against their boyfriend watching porn are just very close-minded and I agree, deserve to be single lol

      People who watch porn don't masturbate to the naked bodies or else they'll just look at pics. They masturbate to the act of two people having sex. If that isn't your cup of tea, then that's your choice and opinion. But I disagree, I watch porn and so does my boyfriend and trust me, we love each other deeply. Porn has nothing to do with love.

  • Under_Maps_OF_twigs
    Women who don't like men viewing pornography should not have to deal with it and vice versa.

    Relationship are like games. There are rules in it. However, relationships are not games.

    • ... No, relationships are not like games, and no, there aren't rules in them. If that's how people think about relationships, that is negative and damaging. "Women who don't like men viewing pornography should not have to deal with it and vice versa." Cool, then like I said, they can magically find guys out there who legitimately don't like it and don't watch it, which is less than 10% of the population.

    • Good because nobody should have to settle. Let them find the 10% and cheat on your women and see what happens. One of the rules is don't cheat. There are rules.

    • No, there aren't. Relationships aren't contracts. Or board games. No one determines this shit.
