One thought on “What’s Up with Porn?

    A few thoughts. The studies you site to support all of your claims have holes. Deep down I think you know it, but no one ever really analyzes these archaic and inaccurate studies that men use to make a point about this. For #1. This is clearly not true. A study at Washington University by Andrey Anokhin showed that women are just as stimulated and responsive to sexual images as men. Also research in Brain Research Journal showed the same but I don’t have the citation in front of me. For Men Like Sex, are you suggesting that the amount of masturbation is the only indicator of liking sex. Women LOVE sex. And perhaps there have not been more studies to prove it. We all love sex and just because you think me watch it so much more, the reality is that if more porn was available of naked men and so forth for women, it would probably be consumed more. Everyone just keeps telling women that they don’t like it or want it because society is so wrapped up in making sure men get what they want. But I also want to point out that what’s most important, is that this article contradicts what you say in your article about porn affecting relationships. I lost a marriage to porn addiction and there is no doubt in my mind that his porn use directly affected our relationship. I know men want to think they can have both because they want both, but in a committed relationship, it won’t work if both people are not on the same page with it, and there is nothing wrong if a woman does not want it in her relationship. Those people, typically men, who say that women need to get over insecurity or maybe he’s not as responsive to you sexually because you don’t approve of his porn watching, those arguments are cop outs.
