9. He Blogs Less

Fox News -- We Report, You Decide: FOXSexpert: 8 Signs Your Partner is Addicted to Porn:

Many people are completely in the dark that their partner likes porn, much less has a serious relationship with it. Ignorant as to any issue, they trust their lover unconditionally. They assume their partner understands that using porn, at least beyond a magazine like Playboy, is the equivalent of having an actual affair. This ignorance, combined with the great lengths to which a porn enthusiast will go to hide erotica, can leave a partner in the dark for months or even years.
Guys, take a piece of advice from me -- Throw your porn in your girls face. Don't give her a choice. You're a man, a man that likes to watch a rooster get fucked by a German Frau with a strap-on. Don't let her tell you that it's "weird" or "disgusting", or totally "inappropriate" to watch on the train. After all, she'll be gone in a few months, but the German chick and the rooster? They will always be there for you..

Now, on to the "8 Signs that You're a Fat Cow and You're Husband Would Rather Watch Teeny Porn Instead of Fucking You":
2. Your partner lacks interest in sex or is sexually unresponsive.

You’re noticing a decrease in physical affection and non-sexual touch. If you have sex, it’s because you are the one initiating it. Your partner is having trouble becoming sexually aroused (for example, achieving erection or having an orgasm).

Furthermore, your partner needs more and more stimulation to get turned on and release. He has developed a strong interest in sexual practices that seem a little out of left field. No matter what, both of you are feeling largely dissatisfied post-sex.

3. Your partner is being uncharacteristically demanding or rough during sex.

You’re feeling pressured to engage in sexual activities that are either physically or emotionally uncomfortable to you. Your partner is using atypical sexual language. He seems to be objectifying you and he has no qualms about it.
I'd like to know what this Sexpert considers a "little out of left field". Something tells me her left field is around my pitchers mound. Or home plate. Either way, it's interesting that if a guy talks a little dirty to his partner, wants to love her good and hard, and maybe wants a dildo up the ass every other Saturday that he should be considered a candidate for a porn addiction. Because that just sounds like a healthy sex life to me.

7. Your partner is practically wed to the Internet.

He spends an excessive amount of time on the computer, often demanding privacy and/or changing his bedtime ritual. As a result, he has eye problems from spending long hours on the computer. He may also complain of back, wrist, neck or shoulder pain.
Uh..Timeout for a Rob moment here. Sweetie? Yeah...You know how I spend a lot of time on the internet and complain about back and neck pain? That has nothing to do with porn. It's all research for my blog. Political stuff that you just wouldn't get...

In conclusion:
If there is a problem, it will surface sooner or later. Whether a partner finds actual evidence, the user confesses, or somebody else – unintentionally or not – spills the beans, the one who has been wronged finally realizes what she’s dealing with. It is a horrible, powerful experience that rocks one to the core. Stunned, overwhelmed and confused, many do not know what to do. The longer and more intimate the relationship, the harder it is to process this news.
Can I add one more sign that your partner is watching a lot of porn? You're reading for relationship advice.
