#HeSays: Why Guys Really Watch Porn

Far too many of us guys get a lot of hate or be judged by the women we know for watching porn. And it’s unfortunate because, ladies, just because we like those films doesn’t mean that we are sex addicts or pervs. Nothing of the sort - do believe us on this. We’re just regular human beings with regular sex drives, and porn is something that we just happen to like. Here’s why...

1. It offers sexual excitement without having to engage ourselves actively with someone


While finding sexual pleasure with a partner is obviously a brilliant thing, it’s also true that sometimes arousal is a deeply personal and physiological thing - which has nothing to do with another, real person. Porn offers us that - the ability to watch and be aroused, without having to engage with someone else. Also, unlike real sex, it costs us about zero energy.

2. To help us, uh, help ourselves


We’re mostly very visual creatures, and it’s not easy for us to imagine stuff - like most women seem to be able to do! And masturbation is something that is pretty essential - even habitual - for most of us. Regardless of whether we have partner with whom we’re sexually active or not.

3. It’s a safe outlet for things that our partners might not be willing to try


Let’s face it: there are plenty of sexual practices and acts that we would never in our lives imagine doing with or to the women in our lives. Not just because they might not be willing but also because they might be somewhat bizarre and practically unfeasible too (without being one half gymnast and other half robot with endless reserves of energy). Doesn’t mean we aren’t curious about them!

4. We might not be getting enough in real life


Even when we are in relationships, often our sex drives are not exactly aligned with those of our partners’ - we might want sex more frequently than they do. So what can we do, really, other than turn to porn? And this holds especially true for guys in relationships that haven’t yet progressed to the stage of physical intimacy, or if it’s a long-distance one. Besides, think about all the single guys out there too...

5. Because most of us will never have an orgy in real life (or realize some of our other, slightly weird fantasies)


How would we even bring it up with people, leave alone convince them? And then what with all the worrying about STDs and stuff - it’s just safe and easy to watch some porn and pretend we were there and get a vicarious thrill. It’s basically the same reason why most women who would never think about trying BDSM in real life have enjoyed reading 50 Shades Of Gray!

6. It sometimes gives us ideas too…


Most porn is totally unrealistic, but the thing is, it does give us ideas on occasions. A particular position, a different angle - something that might just enhance our partner’s (and our own) pleasure in real life. We’re never too old to learn, after all.

7. It is - to be perfectly frank - easier than the real thing


Considering how prevalent the norm of “creepy guy hitting on a girl” is, a lot of don’t end up propositioning the women we are attracted to. Even if they are women we are dating. The mating game is a complicated one, and we constantly second-guess what we should be doing, or don’t really even know how to start the conversation. Given how difficult those aspects of sexual activity are, porn is just…easier!

8. And sometimes we just want to watch something completely mindless (yet attractive)


For some people that’s a really silly action movie with Megan Fox doing a cameo, for some people it’s porn. It’s that simple, really. It’s not even about sex or arousal or anything - we just immerse ourselves in a plotless but “action-ful” hour of TV watching. It’s a pastime, nothing more.
