Please substitute "Romance Novels" for "Porn" in any discussion and you'll see how stupid the arguments are.

Romance novels take time and energy away from the relationship, they inculcate unrealistic expectations, it can be addictive (probably 8 hours a day for my ex-wife)...

It makes me feel insecure to know my wife is thinking about them instead of me, I don't have a face and body like those buff dudes on the covers, I have grey hair, I am not a prince, have no horse, etc.

Anything in excess can kill you. There is a Russian who died drinking too much water. Porn phobia is more of a problem than porn. But the men who put up with it in their own home have nobody but themselves to blame. Get a decent woman.

I was with you until the last sentence! You can't mean that. You know there are reasons that couples don't have enough sex for one or the other of the partners beyond a female not being "decent?"

I think he meant "get a partner without a porn phobia", though I think that's just as ridiculous of a statement .
