Should him watching porn be a turn off?? Watch

    I have got really close to a guy in the past couple of months. We talk every day, flirt quite a lot and he sometimes drops hints that he would like to go on a date with me.
    We get along so well.

    However, I overheard him a couple of weeks ago talking to his friends about how he watches porn as he has been single for a few years. I don't know why, but this made me feel a little uncomfortable.
    The women in those porn videos have huge boobs and curvy hips, neither of which I have. I'm worried that by watching porn, he'll have got unrealistic expectations of women and therefore of me...

    Is this something I should be concerned about, or do guys who watch porn still appreciate normal girls for their natural bodies?

    I'd suggest you refrain from engaging in any pre-martial relationships and focus solely on your studies.

    You do not know what kind of porn he watches. He could very well be a type of guy who likes your body shape so he might watch some type of porn related to this. You shouldn't judge at all because as a guy I can tell you I like every type of girl even though most women in the porn industry have large breasts and whatever. So it's upto you now!

    I'd hope he is intelligent enough to realise that very few women look like those in porn. If he only wants a woman like that, then you don't deserve him and someone else will come along who wants a woman like you.

    Him watching porn does not mean he won't be attracted to you. Don't overthink.

    Okay I am just concerned that he will be more turned on by the women in the porn videos than me... I guess if he is then I'll just tell him to slide into their DMs instead and date them, see how much they care about him outside of the bedroom...

    I just think porn is quite gross... I mean you are essentially watching other people's intimate moments and getting off on them. It's no different to looking into your neighbours window at night and watching them have sex whilst ******* to it. That would be creepy as hell. But for some reason, watching porn is not creepy?!?!

    Women in that industry are just viewed as sex objects, pieces of meat... I feel bad for them that they feel exploiting their body is the only way they can get money.

    Women in the porn industry are actually very well respected and if anything, they make so much more money than male actors in this business. I know you don't watch porn, but for those that do, they could most likely list off far more famous female porn stars than any male ones. For a lot of them, they enjoy it. I understand that you don't like porn, but just because you don't like it, doesn't mean that the women are being forced to do it.

    And for your original question; no, you shouldn't be concerned. However, since it is your relationship and such, if you feel uncomfortable, it's well within your right to tell him that you don't want to be in a relationship with him and what not. But just because he watches porn doesn't mean he is a brainless idiot and thinks all women look like those actresses.
