I don't know why porn would be particularly healthy, but I don't see what's wrong with it either. Have fun.

Meanwhile, I will be over here reading my romantic literature porn.

RE: Is watching porn healthy?
Recovered Catholic here as well.

Porn like anything is fine in moderation. For most of my life it was the only sexual realise I got.

In my Catholic years my mother was very prehibatent on it. She would turn over my room to make sure I didn't have anything provocative. And when it was found A long speach about shame, and saving oneself for marriage would follow.

My wife still a Christian has been rather sexual repressed. And has only started become ever so slightly more accepting of it.

When we started going out I couldn't look at a woman in a Bikini on a TV commercial without being scolded. She still shuns her eyes at the sight of a nipple, or people "having sex" on a tv show, or movie. Even when nudity or penetration isn't included.

I laugh, because she gets very juvenile when it comes to things like that. But for me i'm a little more Numb or maybe I can say more Mature knowing the diffrent sexual avenues people take.

Sex is part of life, we wouldn't be here without it. If you look to our animal cousins you'll see they don't go in private when they want sex. They'll do it right in front of the whole group. Yes it usually only last maybe a min a most but shame is not included.

Naughty images can be traced back as far as man has been making art.

oh what i forgot to say earlier.
Everything can be addictive. You can be addicted to a person, to food, to drugs, to a smell, to an object,... literally everything.

What I would expect, just with everything that used to be forbidden, that you will over-do it for a while until it gets old.
So this probably applies right now to many things in your life. For example allowing yourself to ask questions, masturbation, certain foods, certain behaviours, etc.
And the same will probably happen when you watch porn at first. If you like it, you might watch it a lot for a while. But that is not an addiction, that is just the fact that it was forbidden for a long time. It will get old or boring or normal at some point so the consumption will go back naturally. No need to worry unless it becomes the main focus of your life, as others pointed out before me.

Just enjoy your new freedom and spread your wings Wink

If porn were unhealthy I'd have been dead long ago. It's not my first choice, but the most really available alternative to going completely insane Tongue

RE: Is watching porn healthy?
Honestly, I think it's dependent on what kind of pornography.

My personal opinion is that most mainstream pornography harbours misogynistic, racist, homophobic, transphobic, and other problematic sentiment. In fact, I'd say that my general perception of the porn industry is that it has become increasingly founded on imagery of violence, trauma, and abuse. I understand that these things often come up in a fictional setting, but it portrays these brutal images as something people should be aroused by, and I think that's really frightening.

I'm also generally bothered by the obsession the industry has on fetishizing "teens" and "barely legal" individuals. That's always come off as "almost child abuse, but not really because they just turned eighteen last night" kinda thing.

I mean there's tons of porn out there that doesn't do this, but the overwhelming impression is generally from the violent pornography. And it's so mixed up within it that it's difficult to sort them from each other.

RE: Is watching porn healthy?
My female partner cannot get really into it sexually if she does not have porn going on on the TV while we get it on. I have never liked it that much. There are things I do like, but when I see any type of violence whiether during porn r not I have to turn y head. I have had a position for years that killing on TV shouldn't be shown, as far as sex most people in life are gonna do it, but very few people should kill others, but it somehow is OK to show killing on TV even to children, but sex no! have wondered why for 60 years since i was about 10 and saw my first cowboy gut shooting an Indian.

Depends on what kind of porn it is, and how often.

I have never understood the death porn thing here in the US. Show a tit, vulva or penis? Bangin

But wholesale slaughter? Crickets

Though I must admit that in the '60s, it was a bit different. A friend and I went to see a movie that was rated "R". The "worst" scene of the movie was where a rabid Collie dog was walking through town, snarling and foaming at the mouth. Bo-o-o-oring. Sleepy
