Question
 

Is it permissible for a married couple to watch pornography in order to boost their sexual life?

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer

 

Watching pornography is not permissible under any circumstances.

Allah says in the Quran:

”Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do. And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment…” (Quran, 24:30-31)

 

There are also many Ahadith and Quranic verses in addition to these verses.

As for watching pornography to boost sexual life, it will not be allowed as well.

The couple should instead seek halal ways to help them in their marriage.
