Pornography shows sexual behaviour in pictures, films, drawings or texts. People use pornography to get sexually aroused.
It is OK if you like pornography. Many people like pornography, others do not.
Pornography and sex in reality
Pornography is not the same as real sex. For example, in pornography people:
- always have slim bodies, a large penis or large breasts (which are often photoshopped);
- want and can have sex all the time;
- do not show any emotions.
Reality is usually not like this. Discover with your partner what you enjoy in your sex life.
Too much pornography
Watching pornography can become a problem if you do it very often without having it under control. If you feel you need it every day and you need it more and more, you can talk to a health professional about it.
