Dating sex marriage
However, as a site dedicated to strengthening marriages, we feel strongly that it’s a topic that needs to be more openly and candidly discussed and studied.That’s why today we’re tackling the (sometimes uncomfortable and awkward) topic of…Pornography is on the rise!Professors Jennings Bryant and Dolf Zillman have been researching the effects of pornography for more than 30 years and have concluded that when it comes to porn use “no rigorous research demonstrations of desirable effects can be reported.”Or in other words, in all the legitimate research they’ve studied over the years, they have found NO benefits to pornography- only damage. Jill Manning found that 56% of divorce cases involved one party having an “obsessive interest in pornographic websites.” Similarly, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers polled 350 divorce attorneys in 2003, where two-thirds of them reported that the internet played a significant role in the divorces, with excessive interest in online porn contributing to more than half of such cases.So, what is it about pornography that is leading to divorce? According to numerous studies, prolonged exposure to pornography leads to a diminished trust between intimate couples. After all, pornography and secrecy go hand in hand.Pornography leads to objectification rather than a meaningful interaction with another person. When men and women were exposed to porn, they were less likely to be pleased with their partner’s physical appearance, affection, and sexual performance.
We all have our own personal moral and religious views on the subject, but for the purpose of this article, we’re going to be mainly focusing on what scientific research, studies, and surveys have discovered about the link between pornography and marriage.Porn users may find that not only do they see their partners in a less than “satisfying” way, but they start to think that they themselves are less attractive as well.Men who viewed a lot of porn were likely to say that they became more critical of their partner’s appearance and lost interest in sex with their partner as a result.They wonder what else is going on that they don’t know about. Because a bonding hormone is released during sexual intimacy, it can be a wonderful and powerful way to feel closer to and connect with your spouse.
