Is Porn Another Form Of Infidelity In Marriage?

Pornography is an ever-growing trend all over the world creating a poor stereotype in young peoples minds of what to expect from relationships Shibuya Kaho . Dress sense, body image and expectations are being programmed into everyday life and giving easily influenced people a totally wrong perception of what to expect from life and relationships. The average person, male or female, will find it hard to live up to these expectations.

Any person measuring themselves up against characters from porn are setting themselves up for a fall. People will change physically as the years march on, gravity takes its toll on some body parts while diet affects others. Hair changes color or disappears. Stamina and libido gradually decrease. Anyone expecting themself or their partner to continue to measure up to the “standards” set by porn is likely to be in for a disappointment.

Imagine then how your partners feelings are going to be affected if they feel they are being measured up against a porn star? Unworthy, ugly, lacking and hurt would be a pretty fair start. Imagine if you were the one being measured up against a fantasy? Do you think you would be filled with confidence in your own looks and abilities?

Many couples use pornography as a source of excitement in a relationship. Using the fantasy together for mutual benefit is one thing — viewing it in secret for your own sexual gratification is another thing entirely.
