    Default Por.nography and relationships

    How does/has/would p.ornography affect your relationship?
    Does your partner watch it & you don't mind? or watch together. Or does he hide it from you?
    How would you react if you found out?

    I've recently found out my partner has been watching a lot and it's given me such low self esteem and made me feel unattractive. I asked him about it but all he could go on about was me going through his phone. It sounds silly because most men probably watch & it's no big deal but it's really hurt me & I don't know if I can get over it. Any advice?

    I don't buy the "most men watch it" mantra.

    I wouldn't be cool with it at all. Because of my understanding on the se* trade, pornography and its preying on vulnerable women I could never see it as an acceptable past time.

    Thanks, I did tell him how it makes me feel, but he just brought up other issues. He's FIFO so haven't heard from him since he left Wednesday.

    It's understandable that he'd be on the defence as he probably felt his privacy was invaded. I'd say give it some time and talk rationally when he gets back.

    If he's FIFO I don't really blame him to be honest. If his beautiful wife isn't within reach for weeks on end then he probably uses porn to clean the pipes.

    Apologise for going through his phone and give him a hall pass for non personalized p0rn while he is away on FIFO.

    Thanks for the replies. He's only away for a week at a time, 1 on 1 off and he doesn't usually want to DTD with me when he is at home. 😢
