Watching Porn Together: Why All Couples Should Try It

Let's face it – porn can be a bit of a taboo topic among people in relationships. The thing is, it doesn't have to be. Part of the reason that people object to their partners watching porn without them can be a kind of relationship FOMO: fear of missing out on intimacy that you could engage in together.  

This is why watching porn together is something that all couples should try at least once. If it's not for you and your partner, then at least you'll know. If you find you enjoy this together, it could open up a whole exciting new chapter for the two of you.  

Before you start 

If you think you and your partner could benefit from watching porn together, then there are a few steps to take first. If you've never watched porn together before then, you should ensure that this is something you are both comfortable and happy to do. Have an open talk about what you want to watch, and make sure that you are both in agreement that if either of you gets uncomfortable, you stop.  

Deciding what to watch can be tricky. Everyone has different tastes and fantasies. No two people are the same, so it is unlikely that you will automatically agree on the same type of porn to watch. It could be helpful to start with something simple rather than jumping straight into the more adventurous adult content.  

Sex-positivity 

Watching porn together can help to increase feelings of sex-positivity. Sex and intimacy are not wrong or shameful. Engaging with open discussions on porn and watching sex-positive porn can help ensure that you remove any feelings of worry and insecurity.  

It is also important to note that porn is not a realistic representation of intimacy. While it can be helpful to encourage a more positive attitude towards sex, it should not be used as an accurate representation of how intimate relations should be.  

Removing concerns about pornography 

Many people in relationships have concerns about their partners watching pornography. Though the stereotype goes that it is usually women who feel this way, it can happen to anyone of any gender. This can stem from many reasons, including feelings of insecurity or jealousy. Watching porn together can help to alleviate these concerns – especially if you find that you both enjoy it.  

Adding some adventure to the bedroom 

If you are thinking of being even more adventurous, you could even consider trying something a little more interactive. Cam girls are an excellent way to bring some variety and excitement to the bedroom.  

Some people may have concerns regarding cam girls, as they think that they may not appeal to their tastes and preferences. While this is understandable, it is also not necessarily true. Cam websites have options for people of all preferences. As this article on Babe Station shows, many also offer other entertainment like football and opportunities for a vast range of tastes.  

Bringing you closer together 

Watching porn together can help to bring you closer. It is another activity that you can do as a couple, and for many couples, it can bring new life to their intimacy.  

Even if you find that watching porn together is not for you, it could still be an exciting experience. This shared experience can lead to greater intimacy in all areas of your relationship and greater honesty around other aspects of your relationship.  

Creating opportunities for discussions Of intimacy 

You could consider using your shared decision to watch porn as an opportunity to discuss your feelings around intimacy in general. After all, you will need to find something to watch that you will both enjoy.  

Watching porn together could be the perfect vehicle to explore each other's likes and dislikes. Open discussions are one of the most vital elements of a healthy intimate relationship, so using porn as a way to kick-start a conversation could be ideal. Just as you would when deciding what you want to watch on Netflix, you could have an open talk about how you feel about different aspects of intimacy.  

Increase confidence and creativity 

While porn is rarely an accurate depiction of intimacy, it can help to inspire you and your partner with new ideas for activities in the bedroom. You could both discover things that you never realized you enjoyed while watching porn together, and this can be a fantastic way to promote intimacy and excitement in your relationship.  

Many couples turn to porn as a way of reigniting intimate relations when they feel they are stuck in a rut. Porn can help to give you confidence in yourselves and your relationship, particularly if you watch some of the more sex-positive pornography out there.  

Alternatives to watching porn together 

If you've decided that watching porn together isn't for you, but you still want to find new and exciting ways to be intimate, there are plenty of things that you could choose.  

If visual porn isn't for you and your partner, you could consider reading erotica together. This can be a gentler way to introduce pornography to your relationship. 

You could also experiment with different positions, locations and props. There are many other options out there for anyone wanting to find a new way to bring intimacy to a relationship – all you have to do is find the one that works for you. 

Conclusion 

Watching porn with your partner can have a lot of positive effects on a relationship. It can help to reignite intimacy and encourage confidence and honest discussions about sex. It can be great fun for couples who find it works and does wonders for spicing up your relationship as a whole.  

It is important to remember, as with anything involving intimacy, that watching porn should only be done if both of you are entirely comfortable. There is nothing wrong with deciding that regular viewings of porn are not for you as a couple – the important thing is to experiment and find what works well for you.
