Men are no longer the only ones watching X-rated films online. Women are also tuning in, and they're reporting some pretty interesting benefits. According to a new survey by UK sex toy and lingerie store Ann Summers, 58 percent of women who watched porn with their partners said it had a positive effect on their relationship.

More than half of these women also said it gave them the confidence to ask for what they wanted in bed. As for women who watched porn solo, 85 percent reported watching it as an escape, while 23 percent said it helped them relieve stress.

So the next time you feel slightly ashamed for watching porn as your guilty pleasure, know that there is absolutely nothing wrong with you, and that there are many, many, many women out there who are just like you.
