A new study now reveals that women who watch pornography tend to be happier.

The study found that women scored higher “life satisfaction” ratings than those who never viewed X-rated material.

 

On the contrary, scientists found that men watched porn when lonely or in an unhappy relationship.

However, women were more likely to enjoy it as part of a loving couple and turned to friends instead when feeling low.

German researchers quizzed 2,527 adults — average age of 49 — about their internet porn habits.

They found 27 per cent of men watched it, compared to seven per cent of women.

Speaking about the findings, Dr Mathias Weber, from the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, said, “Women use sexually explicit material more when they have a partner. This implies it is part of sexual practices.”

He further added that women seek help among friends when dissatisfied, while men prefer escapism.
