Study Shows Couples Who Watch Porn Together Are More Committed

17% of American women watch porn.


Now here's something all you fans of porn might want to know: it's good for your relationship. Surprised?

A recent study found that not only do 45 percent of couples watch porn together, but it's a healthy way to bond. Not to mention all the tips and tricks you can learn from watching others get it on-even if the music is on the cheesy side.

The study, which was published in The Archives of Sexual Behavior, found that when it came to unmarried couples, their relationships were "more committed and sexually satisfying" than if one were secretly indulging in porn when the other one wasn't around. Let's be honest, communication about sex is a major component to a great relationship and if you can work a mutual interest for porn into your sex life, it's not only a learning experience, but can add some spice to those missionary positions that may be getting on the old side.

However, for some, porn is still a taboo subject. People also seem to assume that it's men-only behavior to get online and search for skin flicks. But in February of this year, a sex survey conducted by Marie Claire and Esquire, found that 17 percent of American women watch porn-or at least admit to watching it-and that "one in every four dollars spent on porn" is spent by the ladies.

In my opinion, it's about time us ladies step it up. One of the best parts about sex is exploring new avenues. So if you haven't watched porn or ventured into a sex shop, it might be time. Pick up some hardcore, raunchy fun on your way home tonight and a vibrator to match. Not only will your fella thank you, but so will your relationship.
