The Real Reason Guys Watch Porn!

Ladies, don't judge us. We don't watch porn because we're pervs. No, not because we're addicted to sex either. There's a little more to it than that. If you've ever wondered why guys watch porn, here's us trying to address that question.

First and foremost, it's easier than the real thing! No, we don't mean porn-star level sex - for that we'd have to be half gymnast, half yogi and also blessed with scarily large, er, endowments. But the act of watching sex (since we're not real-life voyeurs here, the screen is all we have) is sometimes just easier than the actual act of getting laid. Especially if we're single and not seeing a girl who's willing to jump into bed with us all the time. Can you blame us for settling for a little visual pleasure instead, and maybe, um, helping ourselves along?

It's also about the fact that sometimes we can be randomly horny. Not because of a specific person we find attractive, but generally. Just because our minds and bodies are at that point aligned towards arousal - and what can we do at that point but just engage in a little porn-watching? We can't exactly walk up to people and say “Hey, do you want to have sex?”...can we now? Besides, it's not like we actually want to hook up with the first person we see - it's neither safe, nor very satisfying. Porn helps to quell those moments of sexual interest and energy - we can just watch and enjoy ourselves without having to actively find someone and engage in sex.

Also, let's not forget about fantasies. Most of us are not going to be participating in orgies or threesomes - in this lifetime or the next. Plus, some of the things we may have idly thought about may just be so very out-there that we’d never actually say them out loud to our significant others. From practically unfeasible to bizarre, we’ve all had some downright crazy fantasies. Porn is a pretty safe outlet for that kind of stuff - without creeping you ladies out!

Finally, of course - and here’s the most important reason - we’re probably not getting enough! No matter how often we get to sleep with our significant others, we kind of want to do it more. Or if we’re single or in a relationship that hasn’t gotten physical yet...just imagine our plight. And those of us who are in long-distance relationship and can’t access our partners… :-(

What can we say, most guys have a healthy sex drive, and sometimes we just need an easy way to deal with it without going bonkers!

P.S.: Also, sometimes we just watch porn because we are tired or bored and want to watch something totally mindless - and porn is just a bit more visually appealing than re-runs of our favourite sit-coms or action flicks. :P
