Everyone has their own definition of cheating. Yes, some even consider watching porn a form of adultery. That can definitely cause some issues within the relationship. Well, all it will probably cause is misunderstandings. 

So, we’re here to tell you all about how watching porn isn’t cheating on your partner at all. 

Porn Is Still Stigmatized

Watching porn still isn’t normalized. There’s a lot of stigma surrounding it and the industry it comes from. Some people praise it, while others say it can’t get worse than that. Whatever the case may be, some people believe that watching porn is cheating. 

How is that so? We assume that simply viewing other people having sex in videos is cheating. The problem is probably in people themselves. Some might be insecure and start thinking that their partner likes porn stars more than they like their significant other. 

We’re here to tell you exactly why you’re wrong. Some people just need a little something to get off while they’re alone. You know, masturbation still exists as a concept. Unless you believe masturbation while in a relationship is wrong too. That’s a whole other topic, though. 

Here’s why watching porn is not only good for you as an individual but can also help your relationship thrive.  

Solo Sex Is a Thing, and You Don’t Own Your Partner

We did mention masturbation, and now we’re going to talk more about it. Masturbation is a form of self-love. Not only that, but some people use it to relieve stress. There are multiple reasons why someone would engage in it. Being in a relationship, even having sex regularly, sometimes can’t replace it. 

Not everyone has a wild imagination. So, when they masturbate, they like to find porn to watch. It can help set the mood, help them get off quicker. You and your partner might be in a relationship, but you aren’t in charge of every aspect of their lives. Some things you’ll just have to deal with. One of them being the fact that they will sometimes masturbate, whether they let you know or not. 

It’s Not Cheating

Come on now. Let’s talk about what one might consider cheating. We believe there are two types of adultery — emotional and physical. Emotional is when your partner falls in love with someone else and acts on those emotions. Physical, on the other hand, is when your partner finds someone attractive and acts on those emotions. Which type would watching porn fall under? None!

That’s because viewing porn isn’t cheating. Even if your partner was into voyeurism, that’s a kink, which doesn’t make it cheating yet again. Think of it this way — you aren’t always in the mood to have sex. On top of that, you won’t always want to help your partner get off. That’s totally understandable. However, you should let them have some solo fun, with or without aids when you aren’t available.  

It’s a Great Relationship Tool

So, how do you introduce porn in relationships? First of all, why would you even do that? Surprisingly, couples find that it helps them with intimacy. Besides, you can get a lot of inspiration for new positions or things to try. 

We know watching porn with your partner might be awkward for some. There are some people having sex, and there you are — just watching. Well, you don’t have to simply watch. Make it a virtual orgy! 

Some couples find being intimate difficult. Maybe they’re naturally shy or have other reasons why they can’t open up. Watching porn can help you let loose because you can see how readily porn stars have sex. Now, we know you are no porn star, but sex is a natural thing that shouldn’t be stigmatized. 

How Do I Overcome the Feeling of Being Cheated On?

This is going to sound too simple — all you need to do is communicate. We know it takes some courage to be able to bring up a conversation like this. Your partner might start feeling bad that you even thought that they’re cheating on you. Don’t worry, though. Everything will be resolved quickly. 

Once you bring up your feelings, you’ll find out why your partner watches porn in the first place. You’ll discover that this doesn’t lessen his emotions towards you. Plus, they’ll probably let you know that they imagine you instead of the porn star they’re watching. 

When the dust settles, this is the perfect opportunity to talk about watching porn together. Your partner will probably bring it up, making this your chance to just give in.

Conclusion

Watching porn is fun when you’re having a solo session. If you don’t believe your partner or us, you should try it yourself. It might feel wrong at first, but don’t worry. You’ll soon realize exactly why your partner did it. Who knows, maybe you find new things you want to try.
