What Happened When Three Women Watched Porn For The First Time

The first time can be so awkward -- and hilarious.

Women who have never watched porn view adult film classics like "Deep Throat" and "Debbie Does Dallas" in this BuzzFeed video.

Their reactions range from amusement to disbelief -- "that's got to be fake."

The video cites a study indicating that just 8 percent of women have seen pornography online.

But perhaps the other 92 percent should reconsider. According to a small social media survey of its followers by sex toy company Ann Summers, couples who watched X-rated films together said they felt more committed. And 85 percent of women said porn helped them escape.

If sexual release is the goal, there's more good news: Dr. Lauren Streicher, an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northwestern University and author of "Sex Rx: Hormones Health And Your Best Sex Ever," says masturbation helps women sleep, de-stress and be more comfortable with their bodies.
