You’ve likely heard it time and time again: watching porn can be addictive; it can harm relationships and cause the porn-watching partner to cheat.

But is any of this hype true? More and more studies are coming that that show the above allegations have no real proof behind them. Furthermore, they are proving that porn is actually good for you!

That’s right–your guilty pleasure doesn’t have to be guilty any more. All the mental and physical benefits of porn will make you a happier and more sexually satisfied person.



Men, grab your lotion and ladies, grab your dildos. We’re diving into the top reasons why watching porn is good for you.

1. It Opens Your Mind

Have you and your partner been rocking the same 4 positions since you’ve been together? Sure, they may feel great, but you’re bound to want to spice things up at some point.

Trying new positions, engaging in role play, and bringing toys into the bedroom can all be wonderful ways to take your sex life up to the next level. But how can you think of your next great bedroom adventure?

Watching porn leaves you with a whole slew of ideas. That foam sex wedge at the adult toy shop may not have sparked your interest, but watching how it’s used in porn can completely change your mind.

The key is to keep open and honest communication with your partner. Tell each other what interests you and don’t be afraid to set boundaries if you think you’d be uncomfortable with something. But once you start watching porn, your mind will be opened to a whole new world of fun sex stuff.

2. It Helps You Learn

Every sexual partner you have will be different. What your ex loved in bed may not fly with your new partner.

You know what feels good, but how can you figure out what pleases your partner? Watching porn will give you some ideas on what the opposite sex may like in bed.

Of course, this shouldn’t be a substitution for open communication. If you get a few ideas, try them out in bed and ask your partner what they enjoy. They may tell you to try something different or they may end up really enjoying that move you learned from porn.

3. It Helps You Explore Your Sexuality

Sexuality isn’t something that’s black and white. In fact, there are 29 different sexualities.

While there have been huge strides in the LBGTQ community in recent years, many people still struggle to understand and accept their sexuality.

If you live in an area or are part of a family where LBGTQ isn’t accepted, watching porn can be a safe haven. You can take solace knowing you aren’t alone. You can explore different sexualities through watching porn and do outside research to further understand your sexuality.

Understanding and accepting yourself can lower your risk of depression and give you the push you need to come out of the closet or move to a more accepting area to really be yourself.

4. You Can Improve Your Overall Sex Life

Remember when we mentioned how watching porn can open your mind to new ideas and positions? Trying these in bed can improve your overall sex life in two ways.

First, it helps you discover what you like, what you don’t like, and what you absolutely love. You and your partner will have an abundance of ideas to pull from to keep your sex life fresh and interesting, whether that’s trying new positions or checking out the Vegas BDSM scene.

Second, it helps make you more confident in bed. When you try out new positions and learn how to communicate with your partner during sex, you’ll be more likely to tell current or future partners what you want to improve your experience.

5. It Lets You Cut Loose

Sex doesn’t always have to be a serious or ultra-romantic experience. When you’ve been with your partner for several months or years, you’re bound to experience at least one awkward or uncomfortable situation in bed.

Maybe you accidentally sneezed on them or they accidentally elbowed you in the face trying to switch positions. These things happen! But if you learn to let loose and relax during sex, you’ll be more likely to recover from these awkward situations and continue to orgasm instead of letting it ruin the mood.

Watching porn with your partner is a great way to help you view sex as a not-so-serious thing. Let’s face it–some porn videos have ridiculous scrips, bad acting, or random pets running around in the background.

Being able to laugh at these things with your partner will help you loosen up. Plus sex may even get better when you don’t feel so stressed to ensure everything goes perfectly.

6. It Gives You an Outlet

Everyone has fantasies when it comes to sex. Sometimes your partner is on board with them, and sometimes they’re not. So, what can you do when the idea of a threesome turns you on, but your partner just isn’t down for that?

The answer: Porn.

There is a porn site for any fantasy or fetish you can think of. Whether your fantasy is common, like threesomes and dominatrix, or a little more niche, like clown sex, you’re sure to find videos that meet your expectations.

These videos give you an outlet, so you can enjoy your fantasy. You’ll be happy that your fantasy is being met, and your partner will be happy that they don’t have to engage in it if they’re not comfortable.

7. It Helps You Masturbate More

Have you ever tried to masturbate, but just weren’t feeling it? Maybe you couldn’t form a good fantasy in your mind or maybe your thoughts keep drifting to random things.

Porn helps you masturbate by giving you something more tangible to focus on. You don’t have to worry about coming up with the best fantasy in your head and trying to stop your mind from wandering away. Instead, you can just watch the fantasy unfold on your phone or laptop.

But why would you want to masturbate more? Well, the truth is that masturbating is actually good for relationships.

In most couples, there is one partner who has a higher sex drive. This can lead to frustrations in the relationship as either the lower-libido partner will feel pressured to have sex when they don’t feel like it or the higher-libido partner will feel unfilled when their partner doesn’t want to have sex as often as they’d like.

Masturbation is a great solution to this problem. It helps the higher-libido partner feel satisfied without pressuring the lower-libido partner into sex. In the end, both partners can enjoy amazing sex together and the higher-libido partner can get the extra satisfaction they need between sex with their partner.

8. You’ll Lower Your Risk of STDs

Of course, it’s not just those in relationships who need to satisfy their sexual desires. If you’re single, you may begin to feel frustrated without a consistent way to feel satisfied.

Besides masturbation, your only other option is to go out and find someone to sleep with. If you can’t find a regular sex buddy, you may resort to sleeping with multiple partners.

While condoms are a great way to prevent pregnancy and STDs, they aren’t 100% effective. This opens you up to the possibility that the condom will break, which will put you at risk for contracting an STD (or causing an unwanted pregnancy).

Instead, watching porn offers a safer solution. You can masturbate regularly to satisfy your sexual desires without having to worry about STDs.

9. It’s a Stress Reliever

Let’s face it–life is stressful. Between dealing with your mean boss, chauffeuring your kids around to soccer games and birthday parties, and making sure the house is clean, you’re probably in desperate need for some regular relaxation.

While exercising and meditation are both valid options, they aren’t your only choice. Sex can actively reduce stress and boost your mood. Masturbation and watching porn also have similar effects. So, the next time your feeling stressed, just turn on some porn and feel your body and mind relax.

10. It Can Promote Body Positivity

Do you ever get sick of seeing 6 foot tall, 105-pound models? Or male models who have an impossible-to-achieve 6 pack?

When the mass media is so intent on only showing a certain type of beauty, men and women both can begin to feel self-conscious. However, the porn world is different.

You can find plenty of videos featuring people just like you. This can help promote body positivity by proving that the world doesn’t only find those stereotypical models attractive–there are tons of people who find all different shapes and sizes attractive.

While porn does toe the line between representing and fetishizing certain groups of people, there’s no denying that there are plenty of videos that shine a positive light on your body type.

The Results Are In: Porn is Good for You!

If you’re looking for a way to improve your sex life, explore your sexuality, relieve stress, or enjoy any of the other benefits above, you can’t go wrong with watching a little porn. There’s nothing to be worried or ashamed about–porn is good for you! So grab your phone (or laptop) and hit the sheets!
