    For those of you that don't like it because of the industry and are worried about the source of it etc can I ask how you feel about amateur porn? ( couples/individuals who have filmed themselves and choose to share it on the internet. Usually pretty tame and from a single stationary camera view).
    I think amateur porn is fine. They usually look like normal people with realistic bodies and don't do over the top acting. I hate the idea of teenage boys thinking all women are hairless with boobs that don't move. And you just have to enter them and they climax....yeah right. So I think amateur porn is the better option.

    Im fine with my husband watching it. However I wouldn't want him to watch anything illegal (obviously involving children or animals) or anything violent. Also I don't think it's an issue unless it takes over your life, which it does for many men.

    Im going to admit to being ignorant to "the dark side". I'm not going to do a google search as I'm a little sensitive to things like that.

    Yep. That they are all lying, coniving, sneaky smut watchers doesn't sit well with me either.

    Default Does your DH/DP look at porn?

    I'm really interested in what you mean here by "the influence of gf wife etc"
    I'm not sure whether you mean his partner encourages and participates in watching it
    OR
    His wife/gf withholds sex for whatever reason and he has to use porn for his sexual satisfaction?

    I dont think she means either of those, I took it to mean that most men who have an issue with porn came to their conclusions with encouragement from their spouse instead of on their own

    Yes. Sorry. I misread it. I took "a problem with porn" meaning an addiction etc
    But I see now that she meant an issue with porn ie - doesn't like it for various reasons.

    I still struggle to understand the point TBH. My DP has influenced me on a lot of things (I ate my very first deli pie when I met him, for example) as I have had some influence on him. Pretty hard to be in a relationship and not discuss values and morals and pick up some habits/routines from a spouse.

    Yeah thats what I got from what Jagamoe said. Kind of like the reason why our partners dont watch porn is because we kinda force them not to. We are stopping them from doing something they actually want to do? If thats the case....yeah nah one of the first things DH said to me when we got serious was that he does not watch porn; he said he used to but 'got over it'...that was before he knew how I felt about it.

    I like to think I didnt force DP to stop watching it. He knows it makes me a bit squirmish, but he says that Im his porn now lol I like that!

    That's like thinking all clothing labels use child labour, yes, some do and it's a horrible thing, but they're not all the same.

    Porn companies like Digital Playground are decent. It's a company run by a woman who stars in her videos and she LOVES her job and the industry. It's not all doom and gloom.

    Just food for thought. It seems harsh to tarnish an entire (ever growing) industry over some dodgy doings. I'm not saying people have to like watching it though!! I know it's still not a lot of peoples cup of tea
