Watching adult movies is thrilling, but it also opens our minds to a world of artificiality! This artificiality often lead to the development of fake ideas and ideals when it comes to your perception of the relationship. So, watching adult movies is good or bad for you?
Here are 10 facts that will answer your questions!
1.Watching adult movies increases your expectations
Adult movies are nothing, but enactment and dramatization. Often while watching such content the viewers consider them as the truth. This leads to the development of higher expectations from your partner and the act of making love, for eg. the timing, absence of foreplay etc.
2.It makes our brain associate arousal with inanimate objects, rather than our partner
The adult content makes us feel gratification by the act of viewing (images, videos, magazines), rather than of indulgence. Thus, the natural tendency and reactions of your brain while getting busy with your partner are hampered and are short lived.
3. Objectification of love or your partner
The adult movies hardly show any foreplay which is necessary for the real life scenario. This way, the emotional side of love making is neglected and the partner is considered as an object.
4. Loss of the tenderness of love
As the movies do not include foreplay, it reflects the process of love making as automatic. When this perception is applied in real life, it is obvious that your partner will show a different behavior. This difference is considered to be the partner’s fault or your lack of ability.
5. Generation of high expectations
The people in these films often have idealistic or unrealistic body images. When we watch such stuff, we assume that this is normal and we should somehow fit in these standards. This way we often doubt our or our partner’s role and body.
Researchers have suggested that people who watch such content often consider their satisfaction as primary. They hardly show any concern towards their partner’s satisfaction.
7. Though sometimes it’s positive as well
Sometimes, like when your partner is away, ill, travelling or unable to be with you because of any reason, watching adult movies help you to indulge in healthy s3xual activities.
8. The more one is exposed to it, the more normalized violence seems
People who watches such content are more likely to promote abuse towards the female gender.
9. It decreases the stability of relationship
Research shows that pornography use increases risk of infidelity and likelihood of divorce. Men who are expose to such content find their partners less attractive.
10. It increases loneliness
Dr. Gary Brooks who has worked with porn addicts for over 30 years says “Any time one spends much time with it, it can’t help but be depressing, demeaning and self-loathing kind of experience.”
As our list suggest, there are more negatives to watching adult movies than the positives. Other than that, they can be as addictive as drugs. So, let’s cut them short and enjoy our relationships in reality. Where’s the fun in virtual anyway? Eh?
