Porn and the impact on relationships

I’ve read and heard quite a bit about porn usage and fifo workers over the past two years of my research. In fifo forums across the country and chat rooms put up by the good people at fifofamilies questions are being raised about the issues associated with the use and sometimes the over use of pornography. One executive of a large mining company told me that some men change jobs and sites because there is no or limited access to online material. This he suggested was an issue of access to porn!

PIF-02

My research work of late has led me to investigate the impact that the new era of porn is having on families and our children. Of course this issue is not unique to fifo families but the difficulties of separation and distance make the issue of sexuality and how to manage it potentially more problematic for fifo families.

Here’s an article about the issue that might be of interest to some.

Do you have a story to share about this issue?

    as for the porn my husband says he dosent watch it, but I know he does I have heard him talking about it with his mates, If you cant go without it, you have a problem, u cant love someone and then go, I watched it cause there is nothing else to do, when there is so much to do on the internet. WHY are men obsessed with porn, it just proves that a lot of men have no respect for women, even in this day and age working away is no excuse
