    Hi guys.

    In my life I've meet lots of people, and unfortunately they have a conception of love way different from reality ( especially guys ).
    Most of them think that the only reason to have a gf is to have sex, just because they have seen tons of porn movie and they think they can do in real life what they have seen.

    The sad part is that they think there are no others interesting thing you can do with a girl.
    Most of these guys were in contact with NSFW content before they can fell in love in real life, so I'm aware they do not understand the importance of a love relationship.

    What do you think ?

    Porn can ruin relationships, depending on how it is viewed in the relationship. In mine, it hasn't and won't ruin it. But for others it is a source of jealousy or misconceptions about sex and therefore does cause problems.

    It's not about this, it's about the fact that porn can change the way how people interact with other-sex people.

    Your title asks if porn will ruin relationships. Therefore I answered that question.

    No. If you allow porn to influence the way you interact with women then you're dumb and impressionable. Porn is porn. Reality is reality.

    Perhaps people with a porn addiction or social recluses who never speak to women will be influenced. But that's not porn as having a false reality ingrained into you.

    It definitely does ruin it, at least it did in my case. I started watching porn when I was about 11/12 and when I started secondary school, anytime I found a girl attractive, I would become erect, [quite disturbing now that i'm older] but it took me 3 years to realise that when I found someone good looking, my mind would go straight to wanting to have sex with them because that's all I used to see men and women do since porn is the only thing I would watch that there are couples in as well as movies and tv shows always somewhat doing the same thing.

    But i'm fine now, in a relationship. Learn't to talk to girls without having to think about having sex with them all the time. I would say it's more about the maturity you're at when you watch porn. Because i'm 100% sure if I had started watching porn at a later stage, I wouldn't have thought it was as realistic as I did as a 11 year old going through puberty.

    I'm pretty sure porn has made guys think all girls will feel pleasure while having anal sex. I think porn stars mostly do anal to prevent pregnancy as they don't use a condom. I also think porn has influenced some guys into not wanting to wear a condom because porn stars don't. I also agree with you, WiSi, that some guys think the only reason to have a gf is to have sex.
