Porn and my boyfriend
Me and my boyfriend are dating for 6 months now. I really love him and we plan a future together. We only see each other for now on weekends. When we see each other we do have quite allot of sex. I also send him videos and photos during the week as he sometimes ask for it to masturbate. So the problem now is he confessed to me that he watched porn and that it was an addiction before but is under control now. I really are proud of him for being honest with me, but still I feel very sad as I send him photos of myself and videos and thought he will rather watch it before watching porn. I know he will get very angry if I watched porn and dont even like if I have photos on facebook where my boobs show as he say men admire me. Will he ever really stop watching porn.....Please no nasty comments.

Of course, if he is committed to doing so. Sending him photos and videos is not wise though. I know it is you, but it is borderline porn and therefore can spark the temptation to access real porn - just a click away. Recovery from porn addiction requires abstaining from virtual sex and rather interacting with  real live person. So try and keep your relationship as real and alive as possible - phone sex with just voice may be better - as that will help him from returning to abusing porn.
