pornography in a relationship Anonymous 55308

hi,
how do I cope with porn being present in my relationship? and to be clear- I’m not the one watching it. I know that being mad about it is childish, but I just can’t help feeling hurt. I know my partner is faithful to me, happy with me and loves me very much. Nevertheless, I can’t stop thinking about them watching other women’s bodies in those vulgar videos/pics…it seems so primitive to me… how to explain to myself that pornography isn’t the greatest evil in a relationship? literal me in the pic

actually, we had an enormous fight over this today. He said he’s totally satisfied with our relationship. That the love and connection is what matters to him. That he can’t understand that ‘some fucking pixels’ make me so angry. Then added that he isn’t going to search pornography anymore. I didn’t get an exact answer for why he does that. I’ll try again though.

Anonymous 55338

Explain to him the ethics and ask if he's willing to risk watching a child or drugged woman be raped no normal human would say yes, especially if they're in a relationship, he's a man though so he probably won't empathize anyway so there's nothing wrong with having boundaries ask him how he'd feel if you watched huge cock giga chads around him?

Press X to doubt. Based on the "pixels" comment he didn't make the slighest effort to understand or empathize with you. He only said he'd stop to get you to drop the topic, and is going to keep doing it, just way more discreetly. I've been through the exact same thing OP, the moid isn't worth it.

There's several ways this could go: 1) you mindbreak yourself into fully accepting his degenerate habit that inflicts great harm on literally every party involved 2) you don't, and just barely deal with him doing it as you feel your sanity and self-image eroding with each passing day 3) you convince him to understand your point of view and change his ways 4) you drop the motherfucker and don't look back.

1 and 2 are obviously shit. 3 sounds extremely unrealistic based on what we know from this thread, but if he's otherwise perfect, try reasoning him using porn critical studies and sources. If it were me I'd go straight to 4, though.

Anonymous 55362

>>55341
The fact that he's calling other real women (possibly even children) just a bunch of pixels is a red flag tbh. Pornstars and prostitutes are people. He clearly gets off to dehumanizing them. Which is pretty common for coomers and porn addicts, tbh.

Anonymous 55372

alright,
during the night I came up with a few thoughts: i love him and don’t want to break up, but instead to figure things out. He genuinely thought I was gonna leave him the other night. But I feel like there is so many things worth fighting for…If he says he’s not going to watch porn anymore- well, I guess that’s what a trust in a relationship is for. But I’m going to continue on observing and if he brakes his statement and my trust, I’m leaving.
Thank you for your point of view, I needed to know if I was over exaggerating and old-fashioned in a way or maybe I wasn’t the only one for whom it all just didn’t seem right. It’s my first serious relationship and my first experiences in many different ways, so it just stresses the fuck out of me lol

Oh honey. I’m dealing with this in my marriage.
99.9% of Reddit sucks ass but this sub actually helps.
Here: https://www.reddit.com/r/loveafterporn/
The resources are the most helpful part of this subreddit.
Also, reading other women’s experiences are helpful in knowing you’re not alone.

You’re not being childish.
Many women feel the same exact way as you.
I’m 33 years old. I feel exactly as you do.
My husband watching porn makes me feel betrayed, awful, and insecure about my body.
It kills his libido for me. It makes me feel like he has a Madonna-whore complex ie I’m his Madonna and porn is for his whore.
It’s tiring. We only have sex less than once a month. We’ve been married 7 years. It isn’t normal. I have less than normal libido myself but when I’m begging for intimacy, something is wrong.

I digress. This isn’t about my problems. Forgive me about going onto a tangent about it. It just cut a little to close to the bone since we literally argued about it this morning.
Look into that subreddit’s resources. It will help you understand betrayal trauma among other things.
And the comment sections are going to be littered with “just leave him” like here. Only you can make that choice.
Unless abuse (mental, physical, sexual, emotional, financial, spiritual) is present, it’s really no one else’s business whether you stay or go.
However I say only one thing though:
Watching pornography without your consent is a type of sexual abuse
FULL STOP
Hope everything gets better.
If you ever want to chat, I’m always lurking.

I'm pretty young and don't have my stuff figured out so I am only in this thread to try and understand others not to offer advice. But is the porn really the cause of the issue here?

It kinda feels like the main problem is men disregaring their partners well-being, wishes and insecurities.

Getting into multiple fights, only having sex once a month while he masturbates, those things sound like serious problems so are you actually working on them? Do you go to counseling or anything else or is it just a constant back and forth about porn?

It just sounds, for both the OP and you, that porn is a catalyst for way larger issues in the relationship.

it's the porn.

Anonymous 55409

There are two reasons why a man would watch pornography. First, He is seeking intimacy by fantasizing about relationships with other women. Second, he views women as sex objects that he uses as tools to get himself off. Most men fall into the second category. Both are equally bad in a heterosexual monogamous relationship.

Wanting to find intimacy from another women is basically the same as virtual cheating, and it's easy to justify breaking up with a man who does this.

For the second bit, porn objectifies and dehumanizes women. The men who view porn start seeing women as consumable items and not as people. When most men see women in even titillating clothing, the "tool use" center of their brain lights up. They lack empathy in a way most women just cannot comprehend. They don't care that most of these women are abused and had terrible lives. They don't care if their porn is "ethically sourced". They don't care about the woman at all, just what her body looks like, and how much "use" he can get out of it. I find it hard to justify being with a man who views and consumes women like products.

Porn is like a drug in that the cycle of use is almost the same. These men are constantly searching for content that recreates their first high, or in this case their first orgasm. To do this, they have to seek out more extreme/novel content. It seriously damages their brains and perception of reality, but most will never stop because they're so short-sighted or simply do not care.

Here's the sad part… men don't actually give a shit about any of the damage their porn use causes. They don't care about the entire industry that is based entirely on the abuse and exploitation of women, and they don't care that the women in their lives are upset about their use. They only ever start to care if presented with the fact that porn damages THEM in some way. By shrinking his brain, or making his dick broken. Even then, most of them will make the sacrifice to keep consuming these "pixels on a screen".

Try these OP, they might get through to him.

I have dealt with an addict before, and unfortunately after getting redpilled on porn… it made me resent him in a way I wasn't prepared for. Once you understand how the male brain works you start hating them, all of them. My bf ended up quitting but I still ended up emotionally distancing myself to him and I know a breakup is right around the corner unless he does something to win me over. I don't see that happening, though.

Men find it almost impossible to quit once they've started and there is nothing stopping them from escalating to the point of ruining their lives except their personal predisposition to form addictions.

>>55391
>But is the porn really the cause of the issue here?
What you need to understand is that the current generation of moids has been molded into addicts at the age of 11 of younger by multi million dollar corporations that profit off sexual exploitation. If it were any other habit - one that doesn't insidiously prey upon their most base and powerful instincts - a good amount of those moids might have been more inclined to consider their partners' perspective. But it's an addiction comparable to a dependency on cocaine, and like good little addicts, they'll get defensive. They'll scream, cry, rage, and launch an entire arsenal of manipulative tactics against anyone who dares make them entertain the thought of giving up their precious porn. There's a reason the subreddit you quoted exists and thrives but not LoveAfterGamingAddiction, LoveAfterWorkaholism or any other bullshit variation. It is only after the moid makes a conscious effort to understand how immensely damaging porn is that he can begin to heal. But most will never even get to that point. Out of the already very small percentage that do, most will end up relapsing, maybe one or two will succeed, and I guarantee you none will give a shit about their habits' effects on anyone but themselves like >>55409 pointed out. Their brains have already been warped beyond recognition at that point. They'll spend the rest of their lives chasing another cheap high, spiraling deeper into degeneracy, and suck life out of any non-equally degenerate partner like a black hole.

The reaction OP described reads like a textbook case of cumbrained addict of the lowest kind. She brought up an entirely valid concern - who wants to bet that if she were the one with a daily search history of big black cock, he'd already have stirred a shitstorm of an intergalactic scale? But alas, he is now going throw a tantrum and do his absolute fucking best to convince her she's an overreacting childish hysterical bitch before he so much as admits to himself he might be at fault. His next line is probably "BUT EVERYONE DOES IT". If no further drastic action is taken, she's going to end up exactly like the thousands of women on that subreddit. I don't wish that upon anyone which is why I'm strongly urging her to consider getting the fuck away, the earlier, the better, or at the very least offering an ultimatum. It is vital that women stop enabling this kind of behavior.

TL;DR Yeah it's the porn.

The chemical reaction of eating oreos is also comparable to cocaine, as much as I hate porn consumption, this seems to be a symptom of an even larger problem.

Anonymous 55417

Pretty sure if we want moids to stop looking at porn we just need to offer them something better, and no I don't think that's unrestricted access to sex. There's really no point in the majority of moids patterns and behaviors in modern society, so you'd need to actually incentivize them with something worth pursuing.

Also, you are going to lose almost every single argument concerning porn use if you use the "It's bad for your body!" since most men don't give a shit about their health in general. The "porn is unhealthy for you" has almost no effect on a high or low-functioning moid.

Anonymous 55418

Yet we don't have an epidemic of oreo cookie addicts prioritizing their chocolate wafers over close relationships and descending into madness as they seek out more and more exotic fillings since the regular flavor can no longer satisfy them. The reason porn is on a whole another level compared to other substances/behavior generally considered addictive like alcohol, junk food, and gaming is because it exploits the single most powerful evolutionary urge we have and takes much less 'rewiring' for it to become an addiction.

You could be the most drop dead sexiest woman on the face of the planet to him with the most amazing personality to him and if he has a porn problem. Nope. Libido is zero.
Now if he is also a sex addict that’s a different story.
But if it’s just porn?
Welcome to excuses and whenever you do actually have sex he ends up having limp dick because he literally can’t get it up because your not 2-D pixels and his hand.
My husband told me years ago jacking off was just easier than having sex with me because sex was hard and tiring. Like wtf. We’re like 29 at the time and we’re not super athletic but not like super out of shape either.

Anonymous 55586

Try to come from a concerned stance rather than a moralistic one. If he has so massive a cope as "fucking pixels," he's probably addicted. Say you're worried because porn addiction literally makes you depressed and you…don't want him to be depressed? He'll say he's not addicted, but you should tell him to drop all kinds of porn (softcore, hardcore, drawn–everything: he knows what porn is) for 30 days to see if he even can. It's a test for him and he'll feel your concern and he'll feel in control for dealing with this.
If he says it's not bad for you literally just google it. It's been demonstrated over and over again that porn is harmful.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but most moids would watch porn and still have enough libido.
If your moid went to a romantic dinner with you, had too much alcohol and couldn't perform, would you say he had to cut alcohol from his life?
If he watches so much porn that he doesn't find you attractive, what made him watch so much in the first place?
If he feels sexually frustrated, and knew you were unlikely to help, do you want him to find relief OTHER than porn?

I don't think you're childish. He's literally ogling other women's bodies. Is it really THAT different from cheating? Let's be honest, if one of these women walked up to him when you weren't around and said "let's fuck", would he really say no?

Having said that, I think the modern moid has a sex addiction that literally rules all of their thoughts and behaviors. So it may help you to see him as addict. If he wants to get better, I think you should support him and forgive him for missteps along the way. It's probably going to be a lifelong struggle.

Men watch porn with women crying and screaming and yelping because that is what turns them on, so much of male sexuality is all about hurting and exploiting women and girls. Fucking women, cumming on them, conquering them, these are all violent acts that impose on another being. Male sexuality is strange, the women they hate most are often the ones they want to fuck most. Male sexuality has nothing to do with love or tenderness, its about hurting and dominating and feeling power over another person.

Men are perfectly aware of how much porn hurts their wives and gfs, they use it as a weapon on purpose to dread women into submission while gaslighting them into how it doesn’t matter because love and sex are separate to them. Whether that is their feeling or not is irrelevant. That’s like a guy saying him cheating is fine because it’s just sex and he didn’t feel any emotion towards the girl. Its still unacceptable to any non cuck woman,

You should look at SM sites profile proportions.
Yes, most males are dominant, and yes most females are submissive.
But it's far from 100%.
Also, remember that most slaves just did physical labor, but people didn't condemn the physical labor itself, but the slavery aspect.
The same can be said about porn.
Yes there are people being exploited, but I'm pretty sure the majority did choose it willingly.
Quite a lot of Japanese porn artists are women, and I fail to see how could they get coerced into doing it.

Is there a term for masochism without submission? I feel that's what I have.

I think that’s just masochism. I know pain causes endorphins so liking it isn’t the weirdest thing in the world.

I know very few people on this board want to hear this but men can look at porn without it ruining their view of you or your sex life together. Looking at porn is pretty normal. If you are fixated on the idea that looking at porn is cheating… I don’t know how you are going to be happy in a long term relationship with a guy. Part of having a healthy sex life is being able to be honest with each other and if you’re forcing him to like hide looking at even the most vaguely naughty thing you’re setting yourself up for failure. If he feels like he can at least be honest w/ you about his sex stuff, that’s gonna make things better in the long term.

Also like… you only get so many major freak outs you get to have in an LTR before you just become too much to deal with (think about how you would feel if your partner had multiple meltdowns over something you felt like was inconsequential, like having lunch with a coworker). In a life long relationship you are going to have real struggles and problems where you need to ask a lot of him - it is not worth burning one of those slots asking him to stop doing something that’s relatively harmless.

I’m not saying your feelings are inconsequential here, just consider the possibility that you were raised in a society so obsessed with jealousy and monogamy that it’s convinced you porn is cheating when it just… isn’t.

Personally I'd argue that "part of having a healthy sex life" is finding someone who has the same values as you, so if your boyfriend is a porn-watching coomer then you should leave him then and there. He can look for a similar-minded female cuck. Monogamy is not an unreasonable "obsession", it's a bare minimum standard.

I told my boyfriend that I didn’t like him looking at porn and he quit completely. It was that simple

In a world where the definition of ‘cheating’ has been expanded to everything from maintaining any level of friendship with an ex, texting any female friend, or just looking at a picture of a boob ‘monogamy’ becomes impossible and meaningless. Have fun panic scrolling your partner’s social media, instead of enjoying your lives, I guess.

Women have been fed a steady diet of unreasonable cultural baggage about ‘cheating’ that sells everything from movies to music to social media addiction to unbelievably stupid self help garbage and if you don’t get that some exec is benefitting off of your misery to sell you stuff, maybe consider it? Or call me a cuck, lmao, it’s all good.

Lol mine current one just stopped when we got together without me even asking to.
This idea that men need porn to live and asking them to give it up is controlling is ridiculous. It’s a vice and it can be quit if they have willpower and something else to replace it. The problem is few men actually know how bad porn is for them and want to give it up.

Funny, that sounds exactly what scrotes say. Also, it's "normal" to look at porn, so, by your own definition, the scrote doesn't need to change because he's also "normal".

I’m not sure I understand the schizo tangent that your second paragraph delves into, but I for one do not consider that "maintaining any level of friendship with an ex" is equivalent to cheating. In fact, I don’t think watching porn is cheating either; it’s just gross, distasteful and demeaning—all things you should actively avoid in a partner. I would also avoid a man who has so little self-control that he can’t surrender such a worthless habit. And before you argue that porn is useful (or god forbid, necessary), I’ll add that any person who is unable to function without porn is not worth the investment.

"everyone who disagrees with me is a man" is one of the funniest copes on this board. As if having ovaries means inherently considering naked internet pictures a defcon 1 relationship crisis. Some of us are just over the age of 19, lmao

I guess if looking at any porn is an absolute deal breaker for you at least be considerate enough to tell the dude at the outset of the relationship so he can decide if it's worth it.

Yeah well. It still can be an issue in a relationship. When a dude won’t fuck his SO because he’s too busy jacking it to porn bc it’s easier to watch porn it’s a problem. Fucking duh.

I'm willing to believe quite a lot of the schizos here wouldn't consider having anal sex as sex, and as such they would protect their virginity for marriage or something like that.
Also, not all males have the same amount of libido.
Some would look at porn every other week in a relationship if they are feeling really pent up,
while others would be just fine holding on for a few weeks.
But if a male manages to not ejaculate for more than a month, he's either lying or lost his libido altogether.
If you think I'm lying, instead of asking about your SO, ask about your friends or friends of friends.
Your SO is very, very likely to lie to avoid hurting your feelings and the endless arguments about it.
It's pretty much impossible to catch them doing it if they actually don't want to be found.
All they need is a 5 minute break in the work toilet.

See, anything can become a problem.
Unless it's actually affecting your bedroom, you shouldn't worry.
Or is drinking beer once every Sunday a deal breaker as well?

If your boyfriend is always jerking off instead of having sex with you ever, you have worse problems than porn and fixating on his internet habits is just a scapegoat. Consider that you aren’t having good sex, or aren’t prioritizing each other’s needs. Ask him what he wants, and encourage him to ask you. Good sex is something you work at but once you’re having it, it adds a lot to a relationship.

If sex isn’t a priority for you or you don’t have much of a libido, being cool with him using porn and taking care of himself is doing yourself a favor - he’ll be less frustrated and there will be less pressure for you to do stuff with him when you’re not feeling it.

Yuck, this reeks of "it's your fault your bf has a porn addiction". "Good sex" like you said requires communication of both of their needs, but being addicted to porn is definitely one of the reasons for terribly bad sex. Porn isn't real sex. The things he sees being done to women in the videos are probably not things that actually bring pleasure to women in real life. He's probably desensitized because of all those images, and nothing she could do would bring his senstivity back (and she doesn't have to attempt to do it either).
Tell him to stop watching porn for a while and discuss what issues could be in the way of you two having sex. But porn is definitely an independent issue here.

Anonymous 58421

Probably, probably, probably. Porn can be a problem but it isn't always. It's one thing if he's wasting money on it, comparing you to the women in it, or literally constantly picking jacking off to porn over sex. It's another if sometimes he just isn't feeling like having sex with you. I do the latter to my boyfriend every once in a while and I don't even use porn. Sometimes you want to get off but sex is too much hassle. There's no lack of sensitivity. Masturbating just takes less energy than sex. You can spin that as being lazy I guess but the way people here view porn is a bit excessive.

>I discovered porn at a very early age, and I used to be convinced that despite that, I turned out just fine, which was obviously not true. Even though I think all that shit should disappear and people should have healthy interpersonal and romantic/sexual relationships again, I'm still into drawing and looking at pornographic drawings and I don't think that's going to change anytime soon. At least now I don't watch disgusting live-action shit or depraved hentai anymore so I think I'm making progress.

I'm sorry to ask a stupid question, but who is this mythical person that wasn't exposed? Some Amish kids? Like, who is the control group for all these analysis concerning porn exposure? Especially for men, or are we drawing post-hoc conclusions just based on general social movement?

Anonymous 58428

porn is bad and your bf shouldn’t watch that shit while in a relationship with you. it’s borderline cheating and whoever disagrees or encourages watching it is a degenerate, fuck off

My problem with any of these studies is you a need a control group. Without a control group you have literally nothing to go on because there's nothing to compare and contrast. Where is the mythical young man never exposed to porn? I suppose with equal scarcity, who is the mythical young woman never exposed to porn? If these people can not be brought forth in a control group, I can't determine how much of this is actually true, or for example here >>58425 how much of this comes from "porn addiction" specifically, and not, say, sex addiction, which was an older term for similar problems? How would anyone know the difference with no control group?

For me the insecurity comes from knowing my body doesn’t look as good as the girls in porn. People (especially scrotes) will tell you just grow up, get over it, stop being insecure etc. But literally everybody feels insecure when their partner is ogling and sexually fantasizing about other people who are more attractive than them, this isn’t just a female thing, it’s a normal reaction. I hate when men gaslight women into accepting being a cuck, and it’s hypocritical as fuck, as men are particularly insecure about their bodies and faces and dicks too. You will often see men seethe just at seeing a cute young pretty actor on tv or something. Seriously, boomer men bitch constantly whenever they see someone like Timotei Charmander or those BTS dudes on tv. And you know it’s pure jealously and insecurity. Young me are insecure as hell too. You can’t mention a singer or actor without them getting uncomfortable or bitching him out and why he’s such a fag or whatever. At the same time, those dudes have a right to be jealous, especially if their gf or wife makes no secret about how much more desirable those men are than him. I hate how men want us to just suck it up and be cuckqueans about it. But they can bitch and moan as much as they like just because I said I liked a song by BTS.
