You, Me and a Porn Star Named Christie.

Apparently the most visited sites on the internet are porn sites. Consider this from Internet Filter Review;

Internet Pornography Statistics

Pornographic websites 4.2 million (12% of total websites)

Pornographic pages 420 million

Daily pornographic search engine requests 68 million (25% of total search engine requests)

Daily pornographic emails 2.5 billion (8% of total emails)

Internet users who view porn 42.7%

Men admitting to accessing pornography at work  20%

US adults who regularly visit
Internet pornography websites 40 million

Adults admitting to Internet sexual addiction 10%

Breakdown of male/female visitors
to pornography sites 72% male – 28% female

Adult Internet User Demographics –

Age18-24 13.61%

25-34 19.90%

35-44 25.50%

45-54 20.67%

55+ 20.32%

The use of porn appears to be a large and growing industry with the proliferation and ease of access the web has provided. And many people are struggling with the use of porn by their partners, if they are even are aware of it. 41 percent of surveyed adults admitted they felt less attractive due to their partner’s pornography.  How does all of this affect our relationships? Our desire for our partner? I for one would have a problem if I found out that my husband was spending a lot if time viewing porn. I guess even though I personally do not find porn the least bit interesting, the fact remains that many men and some women do. So how to you negotiate porn use within your relationship? Do you forbid your partner from viewing any porn or do set limits? And when does it become an addiction?

I would love to hear from other women on this subject.

  1. I haven’t ever written on one of these, but I wasn’t surprised to read the statistics on porn use. I found my husband the other night viewing porn and I was furious. Especially since he hasn’t been showing that much interest in me lately. He told me that I was overreacting and that it was normal for guys to view porn. That is was me who had the problem. I feel that since we are a couple, if I have a problem with him viewing porn then WE HAVE A PROBLEM.

    It made me feel unspecial and dirty…like he saw me the same way he sees those women on those porn sites.

    We are going to see a marriage counsellor next week and I am going to bring this subject up with the counsellor. Are their any other women out there who feel as I do

  2. I feel the same way. I found out that my husband was viewing porn on the internet. It makes me feel as if I have been cheated on.I have been having a problem with the trust issue ever since. He thought it was ‘ok’ because he was looking at “normal women” instead of the professionals. It actually made me feel worse. Those women that post on the internet are degrading themselves.

    • I can completely appreciate what you mean by feeling worse about “normal women”. It feels more threatening because they are real women who you maybe feel that you compete with on some level. “Professionals” are more like fantasies…like you telling your husband you have a thing for Brad Pitt. Never going to happen…but a whole different story if you have a thing for the guy down the street.
