However, when couples watch pornography together, some studies have shown that it can have positive effects. In one study conducted by Staley and Prause (2012), when couples watched a sexual film, they had an increased arousal, desire to be close to their partner, and positive feelings. However, these same couples also had increased negative feelings after the film (Staley & Prause, 2012). Unfortunately, there is not enough research that studies how watching pornography as a couple affects the relationship. Since the literature in this field is lacking and conflicting, more research is needed to draw a firm conclusion on how watching pornography as a couple affects the
Moreover, media influence has played a huge part in promoting the hook-up culture, as it tends to have a lot of sexual content. Hence, media becomes a vital part in today's development of sexual behavior in the youth. It's been said that at least 70% of television that is being produced and watched by the audience involves sexual behavior or sexual talks. (Peters, Sara Jean) However, the content doesn't necessarily show the consequences of spontaneous sexual activity. Many studies have shown that due to the heavy use of media, the sexual ideologies portrayed in them plays a heavy influence on the audience's actual views on sexuality and their expectations.
But most importantly, does pornography that sexualizes aggression translate to real-life aggression? Does it translate to viewpoints on gender roles that diminish men or women? A reasonable person would probably allow for the possibility that repeated exposure to violent imagery of any sort could translate to real world aggression, though confounding factors abound. In mainstream movies, we’re comfortably removed from reality, therefore we can relish all manner of scenarios that would normally horrify. We can be entertained by the idea of someone being shot in the head or slapped in the face while understanding that it’s
Despite pornography is much criticized by society, religion, and moral ground, it still has its own advantages that are attributable to married couples, especially to those who are often have problem concerning to lack of sexual desire in their partner or low libido. By watching pornography, they can explore their own sexuality and interest in sexual intercourse thus, helping them to trigger their own desire in sex. They can spend more intimate time by watching pornography together and drawing them closer to each other. There are a lot of reasons of having low libido or lack of interest in having sex such as they might lack of sexual creativity in bead room.

The child matures at a young age and understands not only sex but the consequences of the act. Children who witness violent pornography will start to believe that is normal. When a child views pornography it can lead to premature experimentation which can then result in teenage pregnancies. Sex crimes and their victims become more common as a result of this mistaken sense of acceptable behavior. The victims of the acts may have also been subjected to pornography of a violent nature which causes them to relapse in their
There are attitudes of pornography. Flood (2009) mentions that initiation and consumption of pornography by males is higher than in females. Pornography is mostly used for sexual arousal, masturbation and males generally have a more supportive attitude towards it. The view that males are more supportive towards the consumption of pornography is not limited to the possibility that females could also be accepting and supportive towards it as well. The major difference is that males are more vocal about it, and females are forced to conform to more passive roles of followers.
Media containing sexual content is harming teens all around the country and making the overall status of the United States of America worse. Sexual media overall could be considered an epidemic along with the epidemics of teen pregnancy, drug use, and unprotected sex. Going further in time, it should be strongly considered whether or not sexual content in media is good for adolescents, and said media should be properly
As cited earlier, one of the driving motivational forces for explaining male pornography use and abuse is the need to humiliate sources of beauty and sexual objects and persons of affection - that in reality - can never be realized. In fact, in this type of case scenario, pornography use and abuse is a coping mechanism for unresolved anger and social rejection. In many cases, sexual fantasies that seem to assist with anger reduction and coping with social rejection are those fantasies that humiliate the sexual object of affection. Moreover, some males will go to extreme measures in order to experience the ultimate orgasmic highs associated with applying humiliation upon the sexual object or person of affection such as: viewing males or females
On pages 176-183 in Chapter 10: Increasing Porn Literacy and Sexual Intelligence for Therapists, Doctors, and Clergy, the text talks a lot about how porn watching is still treated like such a taboo thing in couples. It is shocking to read how many health professionals will devolve down to ostracize porn watchers in marriage counselors and just work under the assumption that ‘this must be the main cause of all strife and unhappiness’. Clearly the therapeutic field needs an update on sexual education so they can start saving more marriages than they are helping destroy. In this day and age, it is foolish to assume that no one watches porn, when in fact most everyone watches porn. Sure there are some habits of watching porn that might need to be addressed in therapy sessions, like confirming that the client knows that porn doesn’t imitate real life and other factors like that.
Men are more comfortable discussing client sexual concerns including Internet pornography use than are female counselors. Ayers and Haddock (2009) found that therapists’ personal attitudes about pornography have an effect on the treatment approach they use with clients. The authors called for more continuing education opportunities to be available to clinicians in order to help change preconceived thoughts about pornography addictions. 3) What do counselor educators with expertise in process addictions related to sexuality view as
