Worried about watching porn?

A lot of people feel worried about their porn use, but we know most men who have sex with men watch porn.

It can start to feel like a problem if the porn overtakes the rest of their sex life and feels more satisfying and exciting than sex in real life, but there can be some really good reasons why people enjoy porn.

It can be good to recognise if you are feeling that watching porn is adding to your avoidance of sex in real life. This is because you are feeling too worried about having sex in real life, if you’re watching it as a way to boost your mood, or if you find that you are getting into habits of watching so much that it is interfering with your work or friendships.

If you are feeling this way about your porn use, come into the clinic and speak to one of the team. It might be that you could benefit from working out how you feel about your porn use and what function- positive or negative – it is serving for you at the moment.
