Is Watching Porn Together Ever A Good Idea?

Sometimes, you need to do something exciting to spice things up in the bedroom. Some people choose to play some kinky sex games to add a little bit of a thrill to things, while others instead venture into the world of BDSM to do something different. One thing that a lot of couples swear by is sitting down and watching porn together.

Watching porn together is said to be incredibly kinky, and it also gives you the chance to show your partner what it is that you are interested in during sex. If you have had trouble talking to them about the kind of hot stuff you want to try, watching porn together is a great way to get the ball rolling.

However, there are also plenty of people out there who have said that watching porn together isn’t such a good idea… that it is great in theory, but not so good in reality. So, is watching porn together ever a good idea? Here on the Escort Norway blog, we take a look at why you should and shouldn’t watch porn with your partner.

Instantly share what you like

One of the best reasons for sharing porn with your partner and enjoying it together is that you can share the things that interest you most in the bedroom. Instead of having to take the time to sit down and talk through all of the details with them, you can put on the video and say “watch”.

If you were to sit down and talk to them about it, it would take a long time. You’d have to explain exactly what it is that you are interested in, and why it turns you on so much. You’d need to tell them how you want it to work, and it can often get very complicated.

A lot of the time, taking the time to instead sit down with them and share some porn is a good idea. They will see not only the act itself, but also how it works. This will give them ideas for how to incorporate your turn ons into your sex life.

It might be a bit much

Of course, if you watch a lot of BDSM and kinky porn online, you’ll know just how extreme it can get. For example, groups like The Upper Floor have plenty of great videos for you to watch, but if you are only just showing your partner that you are into this, it can be a bit much for them to see. The last thing you want is to turn them off with a video of a lady tied up and dangling from the ceiling as another slave gives her electric shocks while she’s fucked up the ass by the dom.

It can be a bit too much too soon for a lot of people, and while it does give you a chance to show your partner what you are interested in, it can also turn them off and leave them wondering what they have gotten themselves into.

This is why, if you do choose to watch porn together, you need to carefully select the video. Take the time to watch porn that you think will not only show them what you like, but also ease them into it. Doing a little bit of research is never a bad thing when it comes to watching porn together, is it?

Get ideas for your next session

If you are not interested in kinky sex, but are hoping to inspire yourself and your partner to try more interesting positions or acts in the bedroom, watching porn together is a good way to do it. You can watch a number of videos and see what others might get up to in the bedroom.

Not sure what type of porn to watch? Amateur porn is a good option. It not only gives you a chance to see what other real couples get up to, but a lot of women seem to prefer amateur porn. They feel that it is more realistic and that it turns them on much more to watch it.

So, if you want to really get your partner going in the bedroom, as well as inspire yourself, watching porn together might just be the way to do it.

Re-enacting the porno

A lot of men seem to prefer professional porn. They find that the lighting is better, so they can see a great deal of detail. The settings are more appealing, too, which can make them feel like they are really watching porn and not an accidentally leaked video.

The stars also know how to act in porn. They will let out moans and groans to let the male star know it is good, and it can get very loud. However, for some, this can be a problem.

If you choose to watch porn together, you’ll need to make it clear to your partner that you are not expecting them to make the same noises. Otherwise, the next time you fuck, you’ll find that they get loud. They might think that you want an exact re-enactment, so make it clear to them what it is about the video that turns you on the most.

Foreplay without touching

Of course, one of the biggest reasons to sit down and watch porn together is that it turns you on. When you watch porn on your own, you’ll find your cock getting rock hard. It will be the same for your partner, and when you watch it together, it is even better.

You will want to know how it makes your partner feel when the man puts his head between the woman’s legs and starts to lick at her cunt. She’ll want to know what turns you on the most when she gets up and climbs onto his lap to fuck him.

Watching porn together gives you the chance to share your excitement and begin foreplay without even touching each other. Tell them what it is that makes you want to fuck them as you watch the porno, and you’ll find that the film gets forgotten because you want to fuck each other hard and fast… so embrace it!

Watching porn together

That said, watching porn together can be uncomfortable and awkward, especially if you don’t have great communication skills in the bedroom. It can leave one or both of you feeling strange for sharing your interests in this way, or worse, your partner could see it as a criticism.

You need to explain to them why you want to watch porn together. Don’t simply suggest it to them and leave it at that, as they might see it as you going “I don’t like how we fuck”. Instead, explain that you have seen something you want to try and do it that way.
