«The aim of the present study was to simultaneously examine the associations between each partner’s pornography use frequency (i.e., individual and partnered use), pornography use motivations (i.e., emotional avoidance, sexual curiosity, excitement-seeking, sexual pleasure), and sexual wellbeing indicators (i.e., sexual satisfaction, sexual function, sexual distress, and past-month partnered sexual frequency), using a cross-sectional dyadic design.» (p. 459)
«We hypothesized that men’s higher individual pornography use frequency would be associated with their own lower levels of sexual wellbeing, while women’s individual pornography use frequency would be positively related to their greater sexual wellbeing. Moreover, we hypothesized that each partner’s higher partnered pornography use frequency would be associated with their own greater sexual wellbeing. We hypothesized that women’s individual pornography frequency and each partner’s higher levels of positive pornography use motivations (i.e., sexual pleasure, sexual curiosity, and excitement seeking) would be associated with their own greater sexual wellbeing. We also hypothesized that men’s higher individual pornography frequency and each partner’s higher levels of negative motivation (i.e., emotional avoidance) would be associated with their own lower levels of sexual wellbeing.» (p. 459)
«A total of 265 adult couples […] were included in this study. Out of the couples, 259 were mixed-sex couples (97.0%) and six were same-sex couples (3.0%; one men-men and five women-women couples). As for relationship status, 17.0% (n = 45) of couples were not living together, 61.9% (n = 164) were cohabiting, and 21.1% (n = 56) were married.» (p. 460)

«Findings indicated that pornography use frequency and motivations might play prominent roles in couples’ sexual wellbeing and may differentiate between favorable and less optimal correlates. Men’s higher levels of emotional avoidance motivations were related to their own lower sexual wellbeing, while their higher levels of sexual curiosity motivations were associated with their own greater sexual wellbeing. Women’s higher pornography use frequency (partnered and individual) was associated with their own greater sexual wellbeing. Findings support the Antecedents-Context-Effects (ACE) model of pornography use (Campbell & Kohut, 2017), which suggests that the context in which pornography is used may play a crucial role in the associations between pornography use and its potential outcomes.» (p. 466)
