In this post, I want to share the dangers of pornography to couples and their marriage.
There have been so many controversies about the effects of pornography in marriage, and how it affects couples’ sexuality too. Some said it’s good, some also speak against it.

Some sex therapists have also advised couples to watch pornographic materials to boost their sex life. According to Dr. JessO’Reillyly, she uses porn on her clients when she wants to enhance their intimacy or get than talking once more about their fantasies, likes, and dislikes.
The question is: Does porn help a relationship succeed or kill it? That’s an important question.
As I was researching for this article I came across a quote from Dr. Samuel Perry.
“People who don’t connect their sex life to religious or other moral values may simply see porn as something that gets either one or both partners in the mood. As long as both partners agree to its use, it doesn’t seem to be that damaging,” Perry said.
“A problem arises when there isn’t agreement about porn use, or when one partner becomes hurt by another partner’s use,” he told Global News.
That quote came after he conducted a study on 2000 American couples. He concentrated on couples who have not used pornographic material before and later started and also people who stopped using porn.
He found out those who started using porn are prone to divorce than those who quit.
Perry also found out that the effects of porn were more on women than men. And really, men can use porn any time and still feel okay, however, when a woman does, it shows that things are not right.
My take on this is that pornography destroys a marriage more than it saves it.
And here is why.
10 Swift Dangers of pornography to Couples.
Pornography is an Addition:-
Every addiction is bad, so if porn watching is an addiction, then it’s bad for everyone and marriage also.
Although so many researchers didn’t see it as an addition. However to me, whether you use it as an addiction or you use it infrequently, it is a serious deal, and it can have a great impact on your relationship if not handled carefully.
