Five reasons why the real thing is better than porno

Pornography can be enjoyable for a quick masturbation session, but nothing beats the real thing. While some people may argue that watching a video or flipping through a magazine is enough to satisfy one's sexual needs, we've compiled a list of the top five reasons why nothing tops an in-the-flesh sexual encounter.

1. You can share it

The number one reason why sex with another person is better than watching it on your computer is because you can share the experience with another person. Nothing brings you closer to your lover than a good roll in the hay, and watching porn, either alone or alongside your partner, just doesn't bring such a deep connection.

2. You can talk about your needs

Face it, no matter how much you talk to the TV or computer screen, the actors in a porno don't take requests. However, talking about sex with your partner is easy and allows you to let your lover know what turns you on.

3. It's healthy

Sex burns calories, stimulates the brain and encourages positive attitudes, so turn off the tube and bust out the lube.

4. Foreplay and after-play

When you watch porn, the whole thing is usually over in just a few minutes. But with sex, the time you spend getting your lover excited, and the enjoyment you share after the deed is done, are just as valuable as the actual time making love. You can't take the porn stars out for dinner.

5. It's sex

Maybe we don't need to point this out – but sex is sex! Watching porn can be fun, but everyone knows that sex is one of the best things we humans can do.
