Porn is highly addictive, it does not use imagination, and does not have whole stories, it is most often uses the degradation of women to get men off. Completely different to porn and cannot be compared.
I just did a search on romance novels bad for marriages.
you might be surprised to learn that more and more evidance to suport that they might be just as addictive to woman as porn is to men with many negative consequences.
I even found a site for women on how to beat the romance novel addiction and women who posted on it how is screwed up there marriage because of the unrealisctic expectation that no man can compete with.
