Study: 10 Minutes of Watching Porn is Equivalent to an Hour of Couples Therapy

Love fapping to some good, hard-core porn but hate the guilt of feeling that it’s hurting your relationship with your significant other? This news will make your day.

Research conducted by the University of Alberta in Canada has found that the benefits of angst release often associated with viewing pornography are similar to those a couple can expect from a typical relationship counseling session.

Wanking off to some hot MILF or barely legal pornography instead of enduring 60 painful minutes of forced introspection and communicating suppressed emotions? Now that’s something we can definitely get on board with.

According to lead researcher Jason Dyck, these findings will particularly help those who are unable to sit in a room with some stranger while thinking and talking about nothing else but their relationships. Post-porn relaxation was seen to reduce tension between partners in much the same way it is lessened after a joint consultation with a licensed couples therapist.

These findings will particularly help those who are unable to sit in a room with some stranger while thinking and talking about nothing else but their relationships.

“I think masturbating to adult films could help those who want to improve their relationships but are physically incapable of seeking professional help,” Dyck says. “Post-porn relief and amity could mimic counseling for them or amplify the modest amount of therapy they can endure.”

Discussion over the benefits of porn viewing have been well-documented. Studies have revealed that those who spank it to porn once a day are less likely to develop involuntary erections at social gatherings, that it helps to prevent testicles from exploding, and that it can make a person more pleasant to be around.

And now there’s research backing the fact that it improves close relationships? This is literally the best thing ever.

Though, let’s be straight here — this is all in moderation. It only applies to watching non-extreme porn, and the university study was carried out on people who are capable of achieving masturbatory climax.

Still, if you want to make it work with your partner, try some amateur POV, gonzo, interracial, and movie spoof porn. Remember, a balanced hard-core diet is everything.RedShtick-Top-ColumnStop
