    Watching porn isn't cheating, and if you think it is... remain single. Just because I'm with some one does not mean every orgasm I'm to have from the start of the relationship is now exclusive to that person. Masturbation is healthy and self discovery, and me being with someone is not going to slow me down from that.

    There’s nothing wrong watching porn movie together sometime.. But not every day.

    Jordan, you've clearly not heard about the NOFAP movement. Regular porn use (and what usually goes along with that, aka, "fapping") means an individual is castrating life's possibilities. Simple as that. My argument isn't a moral one or even taking a partner into consideration. Regular dopamine releases change the brain, not for the better. Dopamine down regulation means an individual's all around motivation drops *considerably* and life loses its color. I'm talking about being able to appreciate the small things in life, like a nice sunny day... or the big ones, the person you tell the world that you love. Look up the topic of sexual transmutation. In addition to the latter, regular dopamine releases, e.g., porn use (and dissipating), hook into a person's hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis and anxiety ramps up. The latter is bad in general but the older you get, the more the stress hormone cortisol is released by the adrenal glands as the HPA axis continues to get skewed. Excessive cortisol can have very negative physiological effects, never mind the psychological and the short changing of one's life. In short, things will continue to slide for the individual, like the frog that is being boiled alive... one degree at a time. Fapping is like junk food, the more you do it, the more you will suffer, even if you don't know it.

      So then what is the difference between stroking off every day and having sex every day? Absolutely nothing, as dopamine levels are released either way. So you're really suggesting to have LESS sex.

    I see no reason why someone would still be watching porn when he or she has someone to share the bed with,... Except the significant half is starving the other of sex. Who would prefer virtuals to real life sex?
