I’m trying to gain some insight and understanding, are there any men out there that consider their partners sexually enough? Or is that just a false fantasy ?
I know we can all find people outside our intimate relationships attractive, but that doesn’t mean (for me anyway) that I’d ever even think or want anything sexual with or from them.
This also includes porn and sexual content in general, I have nothing against masturbation and everyone has the right to their own bodies, but when you mix that with porn it’s no longer just about self satisfaction it’s about sexually desiring another person outside your relationship. If a visual stimulation is required why wouldn’t photos or videos of your partner be enough? I guess it’s really difficult being in love and not feeling completely comfortable knowing your partner engages with such content (yes we have had open discussion about this) but it’s still an issue, I really wish he only wanted me in every way, that’s the way I want only him

Sexual economics theory analyzes sexual relationships in economic and market terms.



Women can offer sex or exclusive sexual access to men in exchange for resources.



Women compete by enhancing physical appearance and denigrating rivals’ reputations.



Men compete both individually and in groups to amass resources to exchange for sex.



Because men can compete as groups, male competition is less zero sum than women’s.

I just read an article on the sexual economics theory, it makes sense

The article discussed the exchanges both parties take is to gain something of greater value (a loving loyal relationship to speak in context of the question) wouldn’t that be of greater value to a man than self indulgent pleasure?

I really am trying to think outside my own perspective, but I really just can’t fathom

In short, can a man find his partner alone sexually adequate without engaging in porn and fantasising about other women
Is one, “their one” ever just enough

Ah okay. They should be able to. They don't need to watch porn or have sex with other women. I believe it's choice / lack of self control and not a need, if you have a healthy and fulfilling sexual relationship with your partner.

Yes in this society I don't blame you for thinking that way or needing comfort, glad it makes you feel better. Are you having this problem with your current partner?
