The other day, I was listening to a podcast with Kevin and Melissa Fredericks called “The Love Hour” where they discussed the intersection of spirituality and sexuality. A listener wrote in with a series of questions, including whether or not oral sex was a sin and if she and her husband should film themselves having sex—to be used for themselves at a later date.

During the conversation, the Fredericks, who speak from a Christian perspective, mentioned that as long as you’re not bring a third party in your relationship or hurting anyone, then you should do what you can both agree upon, whatever enhances your sex life. In the discussion of third party, there was a reference to porn. And whether or not you should use it to make the sexual experience better.

I thought it was…interesting. Not entirely surprising from a Christian couple.

But apparently, the two aren’t alone.

DeVon Franklin, in promotion of his new book, The Truth About Men: What Men and Women Need to Know, appeared on “The Breakfast Club,” to share his similar thoughts on porn in the context of a marriage.

Angela Yee: I wanna ask you about pornography, ’cause you address this in the book. And you feel that pornography is harmful to relationships, and some people clearly do get addicted to porn – and that’s harmful. But, do you think that casually watching porn shouldn’t be done?

Franklin said, “I don’t think it should be done, ’cause in the book I have a whole thing about the one you feed. And so, within us, you have to feed the master of the dog. I call vice, dog food. I call virtue, soul food. And I would put porn in the category of dog food, because that’s what it is. It’s vice. You look at something that is not real. So it’s the equivalent of – you know, I’m a producer and I make movies. So you can look at the screen and say, ‘Wow! I wanna put on a suit and fly around the city!’ Right? And have these claws- and you can’t do it.

Charlamagne tha God: That’s right, DeVon. Tell ’em. Those big penises you see on pornos are not real, ladies! Okay?

Franklin: Right! You can’t do it! A lot of times you see these images and you say, ‘Oh, I learned some tricks.’ But what it does is it creates an unrealistic expectation of what intimacy really looks like.”

Personally, I don’t have a strong stake in this. Sexuality, like spirituality, are such personal elements in a one’s life, it doesn’t feel right to see what people should and shouldn’t do in the confines of their bedroom. Like with anything in life, you have to explore the limits for yourself. You need to determine if watching porn could present a problem by introducing unrealistic expectations or whether the new ideas make your sexual experiences that much better.
