Does pornography use affect a couple’s sex life? By Anne Bercht

What do professionals say about pornography?

Recommendations among professionals regarding pornography use and its effects on a marriage vary. Some experts claim that pornography use can, in fact, benefit a relationship, because it can lead to more open discussion between partners about what they like, as well as serving as a stimulus.

However, more recent research has shown that pornography use, especially where one partner masturbates to pornography, can hurt a couples’ intimacy, connection and sex life.

One of the most respected experts in the world when it comes to relationships and marriage is John Gottman. More than thirty years of research done by Gottman at his famous “Love Lab” in Seattle provides us all with principles that make marriage work. Gottman takes a scientific, rather than a moral approach. In the past, the Gottman institute stand was that soft pornography when mutually consensual could perhaps enhance the marriage. However, their extended years of research is now showing that this is not the case. Pornography is detrimental to a couples’ sex life, and thus to their marriage.

I unfortunately, have experienced this in a past relationship, and I could not agree MORE! It is a killer of the relationship and intimacy in so many ways. 

Thankful, Grateful & Blessed! To NO longer have to deal with a porn addict!
