My response to a famous and well respected marital therapist who came out against porn:

This is extremely disappointing to see you write on something I have never seen or heard you talk about before. 

You say nothing here about gay and bisexual men and lesbians who do not have a problem with watching porn. For this population, nothing compares to the problems heterosexual couples have in terms of their reactions to porn. 

And that really is the issue as I see it clinically. It is not the viewing of porn--it is the reaction to a partner's viewing of porn that is often the problem. 

Gay men and lesbians talk about their porn. They watch each others porn and they are not threatened by what the other is watching. This is particularly true for gay male couples. 

Pornography isn't the threat, it is the lack of sexual literacy and conversation about porn that troubles individuals and couples.
