There Are Three Types Of Porn Watchers - And Only One Is Healthy

How often do you watch porn and do you think it's a healthy amount or are you compulsive?

Research suggests that not all porn viewers are considered equal and, in fact, can be split up into three types of porn watchers: Recreational porn watcher, compulsive and distressed

In this study, recreational porn viewers account for 75% of all of the participants in the study averaging 24 minutes of porn per week.  This group was mainly comprised of women and people in relationships.

Then there is the distressed group.  The distressed group watched porn for the least amount of time - 17 minutes per week, in fact.

As the name might suggest, the distressed group associate their emotional distress with watching x-rated material.

Then there is the compulsive porn watchers:  Made up of just 11.8% of participants in the study, but they watched porn for a staggering 110 minutes per week.  No surprise that men were more likely to fall into this category.

Researchers conducting the study say that the recreational porn watchers were the most healthy.  The study was based on 830 people and they were asked to report how often they watched porn, researchers then measured it against how compulsive their porn habits were and their level of distress while viewing porn.

Recreational users reported higher sexual satisfaction with their partners and lower sexual compulsiveness, avoidance and dysfunction.
