For a Married couple to watch porn together? Is it part of a "healthy sex life"?
Why of course !
I don't like how your question is worded.
It'd be like asking "Is Choclate part of a healthy lifestyle?"
No clear answer.
Is consuming chocolate a detriment to a healthy lifestyle?
Is watching porn harmful to a married couple's sex life? That what you are asking?
You don't feel as if it cheapens sex?
Instructional sex videos, maybe. I've never seen one, but that's about where I'd draw the line.
there's not much cheaper, less full-filling, un-productive sex than 'lifeless' sex. The Cheapest sex is when one spouse begrudgingly 'allows' the other to 'get off'. If watching Pr0n gets a couple intensely excited about eachother than pr0n is okay. Contextually, sure.
See? Catholics got it wrong. Sex isn't for 'just procreation' - Sex is THE bonding action which drives a man's spirit to join with the soul of the woman. Sex is what bonds and nurtures and heals.
Sex is a SYMPTOM of something deeper. A man and Woman (should) have sex because that's the natural result of how they FEEL towards eachother. A Man and Woman (should) have sex because sex is the perfect expression of the uniting of their hearts, minds and bodies.
OF COURSE sex happens just cuz somebody 'needs some' - but HELPING your spouse with that need should NEVER be a chore; if it IS a chore, I'd bet something is'nt right - or at least not as wonderfual as God intended a marriage to be.
So? My answer?
Cheapens?? You mean degrades it morally somehow?
While I agree that sex in marriage can be emotionally unfulfilling, porn is not the answer. Porn just gets the couple excited about other people, not about each other.
This is exactly right, D.
I think it also depends on the type of porn, too. If it's ultraviolent or weird stuff, I don't see how that could possibly help ANYONE in any circumstance have a positive, healthy view of sex "as it's meant to be."
That's true. There is definitely an element of privacy in "sacred sex."
