Is Porn Creating Low-Sex Relationships?
New studies suggest dirty clips affect real-life lovin'.
First, The Daily Mail reported that a shocking 25% of women in the UK over 35 "never" have sex, and that number reached 38% in Scotland. Now they are trying to explain it, and the answer is not good. Do we really have to blame porn for this?
"So, what is at the heart of this phenomenon? It has always been known that women's libido is a complex entity. Are stressful jobs and complicated lives sapping our desire to make love? Do women inevitably lose interest once they've had children?" the UK-based publication ponders.
According to The Sex Starved Wife by Michele Weiner Davis, they say, there's an actual trend in sex-- "the decline of male desire," and we've been looking the wrong way.
A study in the UK by a company called Relate reported a 40% increase in men who don't want to have sex with their partners. "Internet pornography" was cited as one of the reasons why men aren't feeling as frisky as they used to.
"Twenty years ago, pornography was something you had to search out and buy,' says Paula Hall, a counselor with Relate. "Now it's on every home computer, and more and more men are ruining their sex lives as a result, because they can meet their desires without their wife."
Funnily enough, besides porn, there is one other huge factor-- stress and job less. Sound familiar? "Huge numbers of men have lost their jobs, and many more are worried about losing theirs, or have to work extra hard to make up the work that used to be done by those who are now redundant," Hall continued.
Do you think that porn could have any link to low-sex relationships, or are they choosing an undeserving scapegoat?
