    I was driven to create this poll after a discussion with my brother, who claimed that "all guys watch porn," and accused his ex of being super sensitive when she had a problem with him watching porn while they were dating.

    So, how often do you watch porn? And do you watch it if you're in a relationship with someone?

    I've included voting options for females, in case they want to vote too, but this is primarily for guys.

    I watch it freely. So does my girlfriend. We watch it together sometimes. It makes for an interesting night. :)

    She doesnt care if I watch it alone or with her. She knows shes the only girl for me, and I love her more than anything in this world and will be faithful to her always.

    Look but don't touch and I'm fine. :)

    Where is the option: occasionally watch porn, even while in a relationship?

    But really, I think men watch porn because it fills some void of what they think they should have. Women have similar voids ... fwiw.

    You are correct- that void is called "variety". While we may be hard-wired for that, we don't need to necessarily fulfill that instinct.

    I've only watched a porno once on my own convictions and that was with some of my girly friends (minds out of the gutter!) because one of the girl's boyfriends was watching it and we thought one of the girls looked like someone we knew. It wasn't...

    In relationships, I don't really care if a guy watches it by himself. I SHOULD be enough for him but whatever, guys will be guys. I do take issue when it effects the relationship or if the guy brings up some weird fetishes. I'm all for some kinky stuff and dressing up but even I have my limits. I mean, I'm all for using it as a educational tool but pornos fulfill a fantasy and thats what they should remain: a fantasy.

    EDIT: Neglected the how often part...rarely. Last one was the Obama/Palin one which was more funny than erotic.

    Jessica, it doesn't seem as though you voted though, as there is nothing regarding a females answer yet...

    This is very true. Thats why my girlfriend is ok with me watching it (from time to time mind you. I'm no porn addict. lol). She understands I'm a guy. Unspoken as a boyfriend: Faithful as all get up. Unspoken as Male: Wishes there were no sexually related consequences to sex and could have sex with all good looking women.
    However this is reality and love is more important than sex.

    Exactly- and I'm making no judgement here. I don't see it as good or bad. It's just a fact that men like variety.

    I was looking for the download option, then realized it was just a poll

    There is no "occasionally, even while in a relationship" option, because the point of this poll is to determine how many males (or females) will watch porn while they are in a relationship. I could have narrowed it down to three questions: "Never watch porn." "Watch porn but not in relationship." and "Watch porn in or out of relationship."

    Give me the option that applies and I'll vote. Read my post ... perhaps that could be. :rolleyes:

    Well that is stupid tbh.
    Some watch while in a relationship but not often. If you're going to poll people don't give them options based on what you believe should be the answer.

    I'll never tell.;) Actually, I haven't gotten any. I think everyone already knows where to go for that.

    Either that or your massive (functional) collection of swords keeps them away

    Do you watch porn while you're in a relationship with someone? If so, then select that option in the poll. It doesn't matter how frequently or infrequently. This is about whether or not you would watch porn at all, while in a relationship.

    Male, not in a relationship and watch it only because I need visual stimulation to do a certain activity because I don't have that good of an imagination....... :eek: Other then that, I don't watch porn and probably won't watch it once in a relationship that is sexually active.

    If it doesn't matter how frequently or infrequently then why do you state it on most other options?

    Exactly!

    OP, you should either go very simple and basic, or you have to cover ALL the bases

    If not, you will constantly have people without a true option, and the poll becomes meaningless (not that it honestly has much relevance to begin with)

    Okay okay, you guys are right. I screwed up the poll options.

    However, what's important to me IS there. There are the two very clear options "I watch porn whether or not i'm in a relationship" and "I never watch porn." What i'm most interested in is the relationship between those two numbers.

    However, if I could fix the poll, I would.

    Then I rest my case. You cannot expect results from a poll when all of the answers are answers you deem appropriate only to you.

    A mod or an administrator can possible do so
    Use the Leaders Page and contact one by PM

    I would suggest Wild Cowboy or Doctor Q
