in my opinion, the problem with pornography in a relatioship is that if both partners do not feel the same way about it, this can cause serious problems. Pornography is a visual representation (not always realistic) of sexual situations. Sexual intimacy in a relationship is a very personal aspect of a relationship, and not one to be shown any disrespect. Honor and trust are two vital aspects of a relationship, and it is important that those two aspects are always considered. If one partner has an obvious issue about porn, then I feel that the other partner should respect that. Sex and intimacy are very deep, personal aspects of a loving relationship, and these should always be handled with the greatest amount of respect. An honestly loving relationship should never be put at risk for something like pornography. There are many ways that a couple can use to help spice up their relationship without the risk of feeling betrayed, or to have their self-esteem take a hit. A truly loving relationship is where both partners respect each other and how they feel. one partner would never intentionally do something that would hurt the other. Unless both partners are on the same page in regards to porn, other alternatives should be considered so no one gets hurt.View Thread
