Do all men love pornography? How does porn affect the average man’s relationship? Glamour recently asked over 100 men about their “dirtiest little habit.” Here’s what the fellows had to say.
If your girlfriend had a problem with your porn, what would you do? Glamour posed this question to 101 men and the results are reassuring (from a woman’s perspective). 38% of those polled said they would respectfully step away from the computer, while 53% would try talking to the girlfriend about porn and help her understand it isn’t a threat to her. On the flip side, 9% said they would reconsider dating a woman who has a problem with a guy’s porn.
Do guys cut down on their porn viewing when in a relationship? Yes! 77% of the men Glamour polled said they view porn less frequently when they are in a relationship. It seems the real thing is better than the watching it on a screen.
On a similar note, 96% of the men surveyed are more turned on by a decent-looking woman in their bed than a perfect-looking woman on their computer screen. 4%, however, preferred the perfect woman. Good luck to those fellows.
So, how often do fellows view porn? 17% of men view it at least once a day, while the majority of men, 43%, view it a few times a week. 23% of the men Glamour polled view pornography a few times each month, while 8% check it out every few months. A small minority of men, 9%, almost never look at porn sites or DVDs.
While porn is important to many men, it doesn’t trump everything. 68% of men would rather give up porn than sports and 72% would rather forgo porn than beer.
Nearly half of the men polled, 49%, have viewed porn with a romantic partner who also enjoyed the titillating footage. 44% of men have never viewed porn with a love interest.
