"I watch porn when I'm alone in the house because it turns me on. Is this normal, or bad?"
My partner watches porn regularly and I have started watching it when I’m alone in the house because it turns me on too. Is this normal, or is it bad?
Alex Comfort – the author of the infamous sex bible The Joy of Sex – says pornography is ‘the name given to any sexual literature somebody is trying to suppress’. He goes on to say that ‘most normal people enjoy looking at sex books and reading sex fantasies – which is why abnormal people have to spend so much time and money attempting to suppress them’.
I’m inclined to agree with him. I’m assuming you’re female which is why you’re effectively asking for permission to be turned on. After all, everyone knows that men love porn but ‘nice girls’ are supposed to be disgusted and horrified by such ‘vulgar’ sex, right? Wrong.
After numerous bizarre tests, which involved wiring people’s genitals to machines, scientists have officially declared that women get as turned on as men by reading or watching sexually explicit material.
Truth is, uninhibited, liberated women have always been turned on by watching or reading sexy things. It’s just that we’re often not really into that hard-core stuff that he favours.
I’m not sure what type of porn you’re finding appealing but assuming it’s the bog standard stuff, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with getting turned on by it or using it to masturbate to. It’s normal so stop stressing and enjoy!
