July 30, 2010, Newsletter Issue #315: "Just Looking"?

Tip of the Week

Forbes magazine estimates pornography businesses earn somewhere around $3 billion a year. Many adults enjoy viewing erotic or sexual images, and spend money and time on this pursuit.
In a marriage, porn can be a turn-on, if both partners are interested in the content and use it to get ideas for creatively expressing their desire for one another. Frequently, though, one partner uses pornography as an escape from his mate, who then becomes angry or hurt.
If porn is a problem in your relationship, begin by speaking to your partner about your feelings, and consider the help of a couples therapist.
In general, pornography is just like any other "addictive" activity (hobbies, computer games, television). It may be fun in moderation, but if it's taking away time that you should be spending with your spouse, it's time to cut back and work on changing your life instead of trying to escape from it.
