‘Notion that men don’t look at porn is absurd’

Okay ladies – maybe you should earmuff it for a while. Because the truth may hurt…

I will be the first to admit I am not their target market but this week I found myself reading a laughable column in an Irish girly mag (my colleague gave it to me, honest) about porn written by a female journalist who is, quite simply, deluding herself. 

I’ll spare you 99 per cent of its content, schoolyard puns and poor attempt to be shocking and offer you this nugget: “I would be very hurt if I found out my boyfriend was using it behind my back.” 

I’ve no idea who he is but he is either one of a kind or else he is absolutely lying to you. 

This notion that men don’t look at porn is absurd – and women who believe in the mythical mantra are simply kidding themselves. 

The guest columnist in question set the scene for her personal tell-all article by explaining that she watched porn with her fella in a hotel room once but that it didn’t do anything for either of them.

Eh…you think?

I guarantee you if you had left the room for a few minutes he would have had a ball.  

Anyway girls, even if you find the one man on earth who currently doesn’t dabble you should know that researchers have found that he is likely to be having an affair. It’s a science. 

Data by cheating website IllicitEncounters.com proved this week that men who don’t cheat on their partners, watch much more pornography than those who do.

The site surveyed 1,400 of its male members and found that 72pc admitted they watched porn regularly (between 1-3 times a week) prior to engaging in an affair, compared to just 34pc since starting to cheat on their partner.

So by my calculations the writers of Irish girly mags would do their readers a better service by telling them to be relieved instead of hurt if porn is their fellah’s hobby of choice.

Fact.
