Is Porn Bad For the Single Adult? XXXchurch Founder Answers

text size A A A

It should be a no-brainer to know that pornography destroys marriages.

After all, habitually viewing pornography “sets up formidable walls between couples: guilt, unrealistic sexual expectations, addictive behaviors, and the erosion of trust, to name just a few.” Another words, as “The Intimate Couple” puts it, pornography can be a “barrier to intimacy.”

As a $14-billion per year industry in the U.S., studies show that an increased number of marriages are harmed by men and/or women viewing porn. Often leading to divorce, the affairs of the heart (and mind) include an addiction to cyber porn.

The reality of pornography inside a marriage is that “it introduces another person into a couple’s sex life,” as an article in MarriageToday states.

Another person? That is serious and that is more than sad.

MarriageToday properly attributes Jesus as saying that “simply looking at another person in a longing and lustful manner is equal to adultery.” The article continues: “Inevitably, we begin to compare our spouse’s body and sexual performance to the person or people in the pornography we are viewing. Also, we are making a very damaging statement to our spouse that they simply aren’t enough for us. Of course, when stimulated by pornography, no number of women or men could ever satisfy us. It is an insatiable appetite.”

However, what about porn for the single person? Is pornography that bad for an unmarried person? Can it be harmful for one’s dating life?
