Romantic films strengthen the relationship between couples, but they do not always depict the truth. The pornography industry is also often lagging behind. What movies about love and passion do experts recommend watching?
Most often, in the film industry, erotic scenes are portrayed in a very artificial way: sex lasts all night, and in the morning the heroine wakes up with a flawless hairstyle and makeup. And disputes, as a rule, end in stormy sex. Even realizing that cinema does not always correspond to reality, we are reluctant to ask ourselves, “Well, why isn’t it in my relationship?”
And let’s not talk about pornography at all – you will agree if we say that there is little credibility in it. But it’s not just white or black – pornography can also have a positive effect on relationships. Research shows that watching two hours of porn a week increases a partner’s sexual desire. In addition, pornography seems to legalize our erotic fantasies (we see that there are others) and helps to get rid of complexes.
However, if you are tired of everything artificial, we offer you to look at the list of movies that reveal the theme of sexuality with a different perception and expression.
