I'm sure most CHristians would say no, you should focus on each other, porn creates lust, which is adultery in the heart, some would argue it leads to adultery. I think you'd be hard pressed to find many Christians who think porn between married couples is ok. I could be wrong though.

Homemade porn? I don't see why not. I have trouble imagining why Christians watching other people have sex with each other would be considered "fine", married or not.

This.
From a Christian point of view, any lust directed at someone who isn't your spouse is adultery.

I think you'd be hard pressed to find many Christians who think porn between married couples is ok. I could be wrong though.

There's undoubtedly a very, very small number of Christians who'd openly admit that watching porn with your spouse is a sin, but I'm sure that many privately think it's okay and secretly do it. Which is a great, you gotta have some things that you share only with your significant other. Having a little secret makes the relationship more special, I think.

No
Watching porn is lust no matter what.
You're just better off having sex with your spouse.

I'm curious… what about animated porn (hentai, CG, etc.)? Technically it can't be lust because the characters aren't real people, right?

Edit: Just realized the irony of my sig.

I see nothing wrong with it as long as they are not desiring after one of the participants. Lust gets thrown around too lightly in recent centuries. Watching pornography doesn't mean you truly desire to have sex with the participants any more than watching Saw means you want to brutally murder people.
