Porn
Dear Cybershrink,

I'm in a very loving relationship and I'm happy,but there is just one little issue that concerns me.My BF is 27...he was single for a very long time before we got together.We have been together for 10months now.He didn't sleep around while he was single......the way he handled himself was by watching porn on his pc and then obviously masturbating.

Now that we are together and have an absolutely earth moving sex life......I still find him doing it when we are not together(HE'LL ACTUALLY TELL ME THAT HE'S DONE IT)....especially during the week when we are not able to see each other.

I don't know if I should be worried.........we are really happy and satisfy eachother completely,but he's got a very high sexdrive and we can't see eachother everyday!......it does however make me feel a bit uncomfortable.........how should i handle it without compromising the relationship..........?he is a gr8 lover and i know he'll never cheat on me or anything like that..........i'm really confuzed.......plz help......

Dear K,
Check the archives of this Forum, as we've discussed this very issue so very often. There really is nothing whatsoever wrong with anyone having a continuing interest in internet or other porn, as a SUPPLEMENT to their sex life when they are in a relationship, rather than as a substitute for the realationship they're in. So he's a great lover, and won't cheat. Why not either ignore this, or join in if it interests you --- ti doesn't need to be a problem. Don't consider it as any insult to you --- he obviously enjoys his sexual relationship with you very much indeed.
Many men and not a few women, do this, and have lovely relationships with their partners. He might read Car magazines, but that doesnt mean he's going to buy a new luxury car each week.
