Core Practices

Life Changing Practices

In Healthy Porn Watching, there are two pivotal practices that can offer you a whole new porn-watching experience. These practices are not difficult to learn. The first is to stand up and move as you enjoy the porn. This simple shift of body position allows you to move more easily while at the same time interrupting limiting habits. Some individuals struggling with compulsion have been surprised that standing to masturbate is more beneficial than abstinence.

The second involves bringing your attention to your body every so often. The intention of this practice is to pay more attention to your pleasure-filled body as you masturbate to porn. These two simple practices can dramatically change how you experience sex.  Could standing to watch porn be that powerful and pleasurable? There is one way to find out. Go for it.

Practicing Porn Watching 

Healthy Porn Watching was developed over the last fifteen years by Sexological Bodyworkers. Most of the individuals in the videos on this site are professional Sexological Bodyworkers. According to these somatic sex educators, profound embodied learning takes place when you repeat a practice mindfully over time, as individuals do in traditional yoga practice. This yoga model of practicing is central for erotic learning. Conscious repetition is how humans learn sex. 

Your erotic growth and learning from Healthy Porn Watching takes place during and after your own personal practice sessions. Watching the demonstration videos on this website can inspire your practice, but the most powerful learning occurs while you are doing the practices with awareness. The practices are simple and require little effort.

 

Stand and Move

Standing and moving as you play is called a leverage practice because this small shift from almost motionless sex to standing and moving produces astonishing sexual benefits both in our solo sex and in our sex with partners. When we say Stand and Move, we are not suggesting any specific movements, but only that you allow your body the freedom to move. Your movement could be as simple as swaying from side to side and moving your weight from one foot to the other. Perhaps you’ll be inspired by the rhythms of the sex you are watching. The more relaxed and playful your movement becomes, the more your body can vibrate with feelings of joy and pleasure. 

Pendulum - Playing with Attention

This practice is simple but powerful. Bring your attention away from the porn to your own aroused body for five breaths. As you breathe, scan through your body, noticing the places of most pleasure. The Pendulum can take us on a journey into what is going on inside of our body. Be sure to watch Jack explore his inner landscape in Body Scan to Integrate Arousal
