Hashtag Titty Tuesday

In 2018, a team of Australian and Danish psychologists recruited over 300 heterosexual men to analyse their porn viewing habits. They found that 94% of the men surveyed had viewed pornography in the last six months, 82% identified as regular viewers of pornography and the average frequency of their porn viewing was 3 to 4 times per week.

One popular porn website recorded over 90 billion videos viewed every single day by more than 64 million visitors. Almost 75% of which, were men.

Clearly men are watching porn, and plenty of it. But should we be concerned by this? We hear stories about the crippling effects of porn on men and their relationships, but is there any real evidence to suggest this is indeed the case?

While there is a correlation between porn use and an increased likelihood of a relationship’s failure, this is not necessarily centred on the use of porn itself, but how one party feels about their partner’s use of porn.

To varying degrees, porn has been a feature in the lives of the men you’ll hear on this episode. We talk about our first experiences with porn, and how it has shaped our sexuality throughout adolescence and adulthood. We also talk about why we watch porn, and the moral conflicts we sometimes struggle with as a result.
