Using Porn Together: Is Your Relationship Ready?
Pornography has been around for decades and usually has a negative connotation to its name. You may think porn could cause damage to your long-term relationship, influence unrealistic expectations of how sex should be, and that your porn watching habit should be kept private.

However, some doctors are thinking porn isn't so bad; it just depends on your relationship. Some experts think that by watching porn together, you and your partner can actually become closer through sharing an intimate fantasy.

So, do you think your relationship is ready for porn?

Marty Klein, PhD, discusses what the positives and negatives are to watching porn, as well as if your relationship is ready.
