Sex in the News: Your Boyfriend Watches Porn

I don’t know this because I saw his Internet history or his collection of Girls Gone Wild: College Edition DVDs. I know this because new research shows that all men do. Let me repeat that: All men watch porn. And that includes yours.

Researchers at University of Montreal set out to compare frequent viewers of pornography with those who have never seen porn and were UNABLE TO FIND A SINGLE MAN WHO HADN’T WATCHED PORN.

Now, if you’ll come to terms with that news, consider these five facts taken directly from the study:

1) Most men started watching porn around 10 years of age.

2) 90% of pornographic viewing consumption is online and 10% is purchased from stores.

3) Although single men watch more porn than men in relationships, their spoken-for counterparts still yield to this activity weekly.

4) Single men watch an average of 40 minutes 3 times a week, whereas taken men indulge for an average 20 minutes 1.7 times a week.

5) Men are found to prefer “conventional” sexual practices and tend to avoid anything they deemed offensive. Researchers found that “pornography hasn’t changed their perception of women.”

So go ahead and appreciate how cultured and sophisticated your boyfriend is, but we all know the truth. As annoying as pornography is, it may be something that as girlfriends, we all need to learn how to accept …and who knows, maybe it is something that we can enjoy for 40 minutes 3 times a week as well.

      This is all mostly common knowledge surely?

      Well this isn't a bias article at all! So what if they watch porn? I'm a girl and I watch porn. Is that a major shock? I think if they did the same study on women, and the women were completely honest about it, you'd be in for a massive surprise.

      Cool article since it's controversial, especially for conservatives, but it's one sided and out-of-date. The title should read "Guys and girls watch porn, more than you think" or something like that

      I'd say most of the porn watching is all healthy except for the fact that– in most porn made for heterosexual men, women are portrayed as submissive animals, sub-humans, rape victims. I find it gross the way the men yank the women around by her hair. That's sad, egotistic, and problematic for me and I have never known a women who mentioned liking sex like that, being thrown around for the sole objective of male orgasm. What does this tell us about those who like to view this type of porn? And it's not just "porn", we can also find softened-up versions of these images on tv and hollywood films. Images are powerful because they unconsciously make our ideas, preferences, desires, and general knowledge, and this type of female representation–as submissive disposable animals–is the worst possible way a woman could be represented. I wonder why some men like that…?

      It's interesting if you take a look at porn made for heterosexual females. It often portrays men as morally and intellectually equal, as humans, as warm and loving!

      Honestly, I'm super tired of this generalized statement. Yes, most men do watch porn. But guess what? Some don't! Some don't find it stimulating at all. How do I know this? My husband does not watch porn. And before you tell me that I'm jaded – I'm not. I am the one who WANTS to watch porn and he's entirely against it. It makes him feel uncomfortable.

      I'm not sure why it matters one way or the other or why we need to keep bringing it up so much. It's not really a big deal either way!

      Haha this is pretty obvious.. “all men have watched porn” how about all adults have watched porn… But for some reason my boyfriend is old fashioned and thinks it’s gross to watch porn, but maybe that’s his way of getting more sex out of me instead of watching it :P ha

    6. Ariana says:

      Samantha I feel the same way girl…. My man doesn’t Iike porn either
