Why Do Men Watch Porn? 3 Reasons He Likes It
I remember back in my youth, there were ads in the local papers, along with all the current blockbuster movies that were playing. These ads showed women in sexually alluring poses, and even my pre-pubescent mind understood that this was adult stuff.
I even remember my mom calling them “dirty movies” at the time.
The XXX feature at your local seedy downtown cinema has been replaced over the years with VHS, satellite TV, and now the Internet. In fact, it’s been understood that many fledgling industries – and technologies – were driven forward by the demand for porn.
(The second boom of the credit card industry is largely driven by this, in fact.)
Most women have a very awkward relationship with porn.
Some say that it’s a terrible thing – responsible for abuse, maligning women, ruining marriages…
And there are others that say it’s something capable of being good – if guided by morals….
I believe it is a little of both – but whatever you may believe, it’s here – and it’s here to stay.
Yes, there are some men who develop an unhealthy reliance on the medium of porn. But “addiction” is not as much of a threat to your relationship; not understanding how and why it can happen is.
The primary demand for adult entertainment like this is men.
However, women’s use of porn has been on the rise in recent years.
Here are some shocking statistics for you:
According to a study published in the Journal of Adolescent Research, about half (49%) of young adult women agree that viewing pornography is an acceptable way of expressing one’s sexuality…
About 1 in 5 women (18%) use the Internet for sexual purposes habitually—every week...

More and more frequently, women are finding themselves involved in consuming a lot of adult videos and movies.
But we’re not here to judge or look for reasons to point the finger of blame. I want to help you understand WHY men watch porn – even if they’re happily married.
And yes, that’s the conundrum…
The dilemma is this: How can a man who is happily married (or in a loving relationship) watch pornography? Isn’t that a contradiction?
In other words:
If he were really happy, why would he need anything else but me?
It comes down to recognizing that a man’s reality is not a woman’s reality.
A woman has a very single-minded focus when it comes to her primary relationship. She’s driven by the need to attend to the strength of her connection.
There are many evolutionary reasons for this – going back to the need women had to ally with a strong man who could ensure the success of her children and family. The strength of her bond with her mate meant the difference between surviving – and NOT.
Men view sex differently than women do in several ways…
Before I dig into those reasons so you can understand why men watch porn, I want to share a few things with you.

Why Do Men Watch Porn?
so what do you do when your husband watches teen porn?? so should one assume he wants to sleep with teenagers in a world without consequence? lets also say that its his preference of choice. lets also say he has a two daughters. so... this husband wants acceptance and needs to feel adequate? interesting. good video, although its still infuriating.
i hate when men watch porn there is always a "male" reason and that we need to "understand" why they do it. men always get a free pass. if women were watching porn, ruining marriage, making our spouse feel terrible for not having a big shlong, and fantasized about choking and beating teen boys... we would NOT have the convo like this.
This is sad for me, especially the 3rd reason. I am very willing and accepting of my husband during sex. I am not at all unattractive, I'm in shape and I like sex. I don't nag him, I complement him and praise him.
Governors: senators (or knights) who ruled the provinces of the Roman empire.
The first Roman province, Sicily, was conquered after the First Punic War (241 BCE), and the Senate decided that it had to be ruled by a praetor. This meant that civil (not military) law was applied -at least under normal circumstances- and that the new territories were governed by magistrates who served a limited time. The Romans never did change these principles, although other types of governorship became more important: the propraetor and proconsul were, as their names suggest, former praetors and consuls who stayed in a territory they had recently or not yet fully conquered. The revolutionary politician Gaius Sempronius Gracchus legislated that these promagistrates were to be appointed by the Senate (123 or 122).
The governor of any Roman province always had four tasks.
To start with, he was responsible for the taxes. As the Senates financial agent, he had to supervise the local authorities and the private tax collectors, the notorious publicans. To facilitate things, a governor could mint coins and negotiate with wealthy institutions (e.g., temples) that could advance the money. His second task was that of accountant: he inspected the books and supervised large scale building projects. Next to these financial tasks, the governor was the provinces supreme judge. Appeal was not impossible, but the voyage to Rome was expensive. He was supposed to travel through the main districts of his province to administer justice in the assize towns. Finally, he commanded an army. In the more important provinces, this could consist of legions; but elsewhere, there were only auxiliaries.
Under the late republic, the number of provinces rapidly increased, and therefore, Pompey the Great proposed a new law, the Lex Pompeia de provinciis , in which former praetors and consuls were obliged to become governor five years after their term in office (53). At more or less the same time, he had himself elected as governor of several provinces, which were not governed by himself, but by his representatives, the legati .
The emperor Augustus copied this idea when he changed the empire, until then ruled as a republic, into a monarchy. He was made governor of almost all provinces with legions, and used legati to rule them. At the same time, the rest of the empire was governed by proconsuls. So, there were two types of governors:
Proconsuls. In fact, these men were not former consuls, but former praetors. They governed the senatorial provinces and typically served twelve months. Only the rich provinces -Asia and Africa- were entitled to a proconsul who was indeed an ex-consul. Legati Augusti pro praetore. These men served in the emperors provinces with the armies (the imperial provinces ). Usually, their term in office lasted thirty-six months, although the emperor Tiberius preferred longer terms.
There was a third group of governors. In several unimportant provinces, prefects were appointed. Usually, these military men governed parts of larger provinces. The best known example is Pontius Pilate, who governed Judaea, an annex to Syria. Prefects were not senators but knights. Egypt was also governed by a prefect, not because it was unimportant, but because it was the emperors own possession. When Septimius Severus conquered Mesopotamia, he used the same construction.
After the mid-first century, the prefects were gradually replaced by procurators (except for Egypt). The only difference is that prefects were soldiers and procurators were fiscal officials. It tells something about the success of the Pax Romana .
