why do men use porn

Until 1980, people (i.e. men) interested in porn had to visit the few thousand adult theaters peppered around the nation's cities, suburbs, and rural areas. People talked about "trench coats" and "dirty old men." Then home video arrived, and soon every rental outlet had an adult section. Viewing soared. Some men's spouses became alarmed and a new term entered the lexicon, "porn addiction ."

Since the late-1990s when the Internet took off, porn sites have become one of the top destinations. Today, more than 25 billion Web pages present every type of X-rated fare imaginable for free 24-7-365 on everything from desktop computers to smart phones. And today, many people (mostly women) consider "porn addiction" a major problem.

Is it? In my opinion, no. A small fraction of men watch so much so compulsively that it is a problem. They need therapy . But the vast majority of porn viewers are guys who enjoy a little X-rated action while masturbating. Is this "addiction"? No.

Who views porn? Overwhelmingly, men by themselves. According to Adult Video News , the pornography trade magazine, 71 percent of X-rated media is viewed by men alone, 19 percent by heterosexual couples, 7 percent by gay male couples, and 2 percent by women (by themselves or lesbian couples). Men who use porn solo account for almost three times as much as all other users combined.

No surprise there. Men become aroused visually, while women become aroused by touch. That's why men love women in skimpy outfits and lingerie (they view it) while women prefer bubble baths and spa treatments (they feel it). In addition, pornography celebrates men's erotic fantasies , a world where women are perpetually horny, available, enthusiastic, and happy to service men endlessly while ignoring courtship, intimacy, marriage , birth control, infection prevention, and their own sexual satisfaction.

What turns women on, we are told, is men doing the ironing. Men taking the bins out. Men emptying the dishwasher. Maybe while shirtless.

The truth is far more interesting. Because, while 'lesbian porn' has long done a roaring trade among straight men, it seems a growing number of women are turning to man-on-man action to get them going. Indeed, there's an entire subculture of women who believe that, in the words of one online viewer, “there's nothing better than watching two handsome guys f******.”

In a world where straight women from Judy Garland to the fictional Bridget Jones are painted as the gays' best friend, it's a little surprising.

“Most male/female porn focuses on the woman”, says erotica author, and fan of gay male porn, Kristi Hancock. This is less likely to appeal to straight women who, let’s face it, can get their fill of objectification elsewhere.

Hancock is blunt about what caught her eye. “I like that the porn is penis-focused. That’s where the hot guys are.” She also admits that gay porn introduced her to “more creative sexual positions” and that she’s found it more useful in her sex life than advice aimed at straight women. “The techniques work.”
