    he is obviously addicted to it, who would watch anything except for the news before going to work?

    is it normal? Ofcourse not
    it is a problem.

    if he prefers watching porn over having sex ,then this is a dilemma.

    let him get rid of this addiction by going to a therapy to something, it will destroy your relationship.

    The fact that he does it before work sounds a little obsessive? Also if you are not turning him away from sex, then I'm not sure why he would want to watch so much porn? In general I think it's ok for men and woman to watch porn as long as it's not interfering with their life or upsetting their partner. In this case it sounds like you may have a little problem that needs fixing.

    The fact that he watches it before he goes to work kinda suggests to me that he may have a problem with porn. It may be the very early stages of pron addiction. Perhaps you should ask him about it. If you notice his porn consumption escalating you may want to talk to him about seeking help. Just like with any addiction, porn addiction can interfere with one's life and it is better to catch it early than to let it progress to a point where it is harder to treat.

    or more likely he is like alot of men who wake up with a boner, he might not have time in the morning too have full sex, because having sex might take 1 hour, spanking the monkey will only take 5 minutes, so he chooses this option so he is not late for work.

    if it bothers you just ask him why he watches it every morning?

    I would sit down with him and ask him why he does it. If you guys are still having a normal sex life, I wouldn't consider it a problem unless it bothers you, or if he stops showing interest in you sexually. The best thing to do if it's bothering you is to calmly talk to him about it, ask him why he does it, and explain to him why it bothers you and take it from there.

    Exclamation answer

    I see this is old but I just found it so lets simply answer the question from a man's view:

    zoezoe is right. Its faster, easier, less effort. Also, men are naturally in their mind not monogame. They always look at (or, worse, out for) outhers. Porn is a easy way to satisfy this needs without cheating.
    If the sex with you is still alright, dont bother!
    It is not a problem as people here said! This is ridiculous! If you have no problems in your relationships he doesnt have a problem! This is why I registered in this forum right now. You cant call anything you dislike a "problem"! Its his need. It doesnt harm anybody. Ergo its not a problem!
