OP:

I'm no Dear Abby, but I gotta tell ya that the best defense in your situation is a strong offense. Tell her you're watchin' porn to make up for what's missin' in your relationship. After all, that's better than you findin' a gf on the side. Amirite?

One of two things will happen when you do this.

1) She'll get mega-pissed and accuse you of being a pervert; then beat you down every time you you do something she doesn't like by reminding you of your "transgression." IMHO, this kind of woman isn't worth living with because you'll be walking on eggshells and dancing to her tune, yet getting nothing but the occasional obligatory lay from her when she feels like it.

2) She'll understand that being a prude isn't in her best interest. Then you can teach her how not to be.

This is supposed to be the single most important person in the world to you (don't know if you have kids or not) - and your most important relationship - if you believe that - then act accordingly.

People (and men) survived for hundreds upon hundreds of years without needing to have porn at their fingertips 24 hours a day - you'll be just fine.
your advice is probably correct, but you really think there wasn't a substitute for porn for hundreds of years (know you probably mean thousands/millions)

wife is an attorney so she will go on the attack and put it all on me. i'm considering the strong offense. i don't want to hurt her obviously but i'm not gonna sit by and be labeled tiger woods for doing what 95% of other men do

getting "caught" by your wife watching porn sucks for all kinds of reasons I didn't imagine before it happened. i envy you guys with spouses that would be cool with this kind of thing

Re: beat...literally.. wife busted me.. interntz porn history

yeah probably true but (some, if not many) girls don't accept that as an excuse. they really do believe that somehow you can shut off your porn if you are in love. wtf fml

Likely conversation:

Wife: So - I want to talk more about the fact that you're watching Porn - you know I don't like that

You: Honey, come on. Everyone does it.

Wife: I don't care what everyone does - I care what my husband does - and I don't want that going on in our house

You: ............


You're going to end up sending a message that your watching porn is more important than your wife's wishes. That doesn't lead to a good place.

Secretly video tape yourselves having sex. Let her catch you beating off furiously. Show her what you were beating off to. When you're both laughing start humming the theme music to some sitcom. Roll credits.

Re: beat...literally.. wife busted me.. interntz porn history

That study used a very strict definition of having watched porn -- it is very different than what OP and apparently most of 2P2 does which is chronic mass consumption of porn.

I actually think wife is right to be upset.

Thank you for the pity.

So - you are striving to be the type of man who does what he wants - when he wants - with no regard for the people who are important in your life?

Good luck with that.

I don't envy your spot, OP. My wife wouldn't be cool with me watching porn either- unless she was watching with me. I'm fortunate that the best porn I could ever watch happens to be with me as a participant.

That said, you've reached a crossroads of sorts with the wife. You're engaging in a behavior that she doesn't approve of because there's something lacking in your relationship with her. Maybe it's time you two had a serious chat... but I'll be so bold as to tell you that I'd do it unapologetically.

No offense meant, but you're a lousy negotiator. Address the fuqqin' problem. (No pun intended.)

Maybe you should find out why it bothers her? Like, the real reason.

You know, have a conversation like you're both adults

I think Leo makes some good points as well.

If you're watching the porn because your sex life sucks - now is the time to talk about that.

If you're watching the porn because you've been in the habit of watching porn for however many years - then look into changing your habit.

Either way - intentionally doing something that hurts your significant other, in the long run, leads to only 1 place.

But seriously, WHY does you looking at porn bother her? The answer to this question informs your response 100% of the time.
