CAN PORN SPICE UP YOUR SEX LIFE?

Some people love it. Some people hate it. But could it be a valuable addition to your sex life? Let’s take a deeper look.

Pornography has had both praise and criticism. For those who criticise it, porn represents unrealistic expectations of sex. But for those who praise it, blue films represent a window into new possibilities and a kinkier lifestyle.

Whatever your view is, there are certainly both pros and cons of bringing kinky flicks into your sex life, which should be considered before getting the latest release.

The pros & cons of porn

Whether you and your partner should be using porn to spice things up in the bedroom is a personal choice that only you can answer. That being said, there are pros and cons that are worth thinking about.

The advantages of porn:

• It’s an opportunity to express and demonstrate your sexual needs to your partner. After all, if there’s something you really want to try in the sack, watching it together first can really help determine your feelings about it.

• It could also help you build sexual tension in the bedroom before letting loose on each other, which is a bonus if you’ve been struggling to kindle a fire between the sheets.

• Plus, it can serve as inspiration for you and your partner if the next step in your sexual adventure together hasn’t been discovered yet. You could create a playlist together and figure out what turns you on and what you’d like to see more of.

• Lastly, instead of music, you could play porn in the background during foreplay and sex to make the atmosphere more sexual and intense.

The disadvantages of porn:

• Research suggests that porn can become addictive in some instances. In this case, it is better to enjoy these naughty movies with your partner rather than alone. In this way, you can ensure that your tastes evolve together and that if any addiction is apparent your partner and they can support you early on.

• As mentioned, pornography is not always a true representation of real life. Couples should therefore take it with a pinch of salt rather than an exact way of how to do things in the bedroom. Or, instead, try to find a storyline that suits your fantasies and then treat it as a fantasy rather than reality, like any other fantastical movie experience.

How to introduce porn in the bedroom? 

As with anything that happens behind closed doors, it shouldn’t be a surprise. Discuss it as a possibility with your partner beforehand, laying down the reasons and leaving no expectations other than to have fun. Both partners need to be willing participants in the journey.

Then, you should try to find a website or video together, one that all parties will enjoy. This will help you avoid introducing something into your viewing nights that your partner isn’t into.

Another tip would be to look for quality content that may require a premium subscription with some websites. The storyline, if there is any, should at least match what you and your partner are both curious about. To help get the mood going, and make the atmosphere sexy, you could wear lingerie or dim the lights.

 After watching a great porno together, you can spend the rest of the evening experimenting with whatever you saw or simply letting all of your sexual desires play out.

A gateway to new sexual experiences 

Porn could become a gateway to new sexual experiences, but always first discuss bringing it into the bedroom with your partner. Also, talk about what type of videos you want to watch and let this guide your suggestions. If you want to find other ways to stimulate your sex life as well, you may want to consider some of these sexual stimulants, which you could also enjoy during your “movie nights”.
