In the golden age of the Internet, it is pretty easy to come across a screed telling why you need to give up watching porn or why it might ruin our kids, culture, relationships, health, and lives. So, in other words, you can blame literally anything on the adult movies, from the devastating shortening of our focus spans to constantly rising divorce rate.
And while we might not see pornography treating cancer anytime soon, anyway it isn’t always as bad as all that this anti-porn frenzy suggests and, in fact, it actually comes with surprisingly unexpected benefits for porn fans. While so many experts have covered the real dangers of pornography addiction, there is worth in discussing some of its major benefits and Romance Compass is here to uncover some of those advantages of watching porn.

1. It can be healthy
Despite the fact way too many experiments and studies used to claim that porn is just bad for your brain, organism, and relationships, there is a number of studies stating that it does not actually cause any irrevocable harm to a person’s brain or his sex life. Moreover, it may even be kind of healthy for you! In this way, two Danish researchers concluded from a study of 688 adults that viewing porn materials did not result in any negative effects. What’s more, they discovered a positive correlation between the tested individuals’ porn viewing and noticeably increased sexual satisfaction, as well as other self-reported improvements in some other aspects of their lives.

2. Sometimes it may be better than the real thing
All those anti-porn may suggest that you are using your personal time in order to create erotic fantasies of your own, escaping into some sort of your own Blue Lagoon drawn by your sexual imagination, but that’s not exactly the point of porn. Porn is really great for when you wish those fantasies to be created for you, simply because, let’s be absolutely honest, many people are not always that creative.

We are not trying to say pornography can be a replacement for real sex, rather than encouraging a totally healthy masturbation plan can actually make you a better sex partner. In addition, it is also a way to make sure your sexual needs are met outside of bed, even for those people in relationships.

3. It relieves stress
You may agree that life is a stressful thing. So, viewing some porn can help you find your center, and just like having sex, porn decreases the level of stress too.
When you feel stressed your brain tends to release cortisol blocking problem-solving and the ability to think fast and clearly. In this case, watching porn can be a totally accessible method, and it is always great to end a truly stressful day in the comfort of your home with some fine erotica if you feel it!

4. You can learn a thing or two
Of course, porn videos are by no means a manual on how to have sex in real life. However, it doesn’t just give you the useful skills to learn how to please your romantic partner, porn also helps you by giving you skills for how to please yourself better. Chances are, by watching porn you can learn enough about yourself and your own needs to be able to ask for those in bed, what will ultimately lead to a whole lot more satisfying sex with your partner.

5. It can benefit your real-life relationship
Watching porn alongside your lover can open your minds to fresh sexual ideas. Trust it, as long as both you and your romantic partner keep setting practical guidelines and new boundaries, both sides are bound to stay completely satisfied. And when both sides are sexually confident within their relationship, they are way more committed and less likely to start growing apart.
