Women Are Outnumbering Men Who Watch Porn

by simona-terron

It may seem shocking but according to a Vocativ and Pornhub study, women aged 18 to 24 are watching five percent more porn than men aged 18 to 24. So while men still for a bulk of the porn-watching public, women are increasingly becoming more comfortable with expressing their sexual needs. It’s just further proof that porn—among other things—is slowly becoming less taboo. Add to that the ease of access to porn thanks to the internet and on-demand viewing.

Plenty of relationship and sexual health experts are advising young couples to watch porn together as a way of communicating their sexual needs to each other. No more considered a sinful, shameful habit that men indulge in when alone, porn is slowly becoming a couple activity. According to New York City psychiatrist and sex therapist Dr Madeleine Castellanos, “Porn can really help you explore what your likes and dislikes are.”

So perhaps you should start small and take baby steps towards figuring out what you both like and what arouses both of you. Of course, you can use the excitement generated from your viewing pleasure to take things to the next level with your partner. Just remember not to judge each other and to openly discuss your thoughts if you become uncomfortable.
