Thoughts on Porn

Wicked Wednesday #19

Prompt #190 – Some weeks ago the prompt was ‘tentacle porn’ but I still want to talk about… porn… porn you see on television or porn you search for and find online.

Do you watch it? Why? Why not? Do you like to watch it? Why? Why not? Does your partner watch it? Do you mind when he/she watches it? Do you watch it together? Do you get anything from porn? If anything, what do get from it? Do you think watching porn is a good or bad thing, or are you totally indifferent to porn?

Porn is something that I watch sometimes, I look around at the free sites, sometimes I’ll find something I want to watch, mostly not. A lot of the time I just can’t find anything I relate to – I can’t watch it if I don’t connect with something in it and sometimes I’m just in the wrong frame of mind to enjoy it, even if I thought I wanted to watch some.

Sir watches it occasionally and I don’t mind, we have watched it together a couple of times, but again, it’s finding something that we both like.

As to what I get from it? I used to get orgasms, but now not so much. Sometimes I just want to watch it. Most of the time now I prefer to read a good bit of erotica.

I think it can be a bad thing, if young people are forming all their ideas of sex and relationships from it, but I think often they are given too little credit – they see others around them, friends, family etc. and most of them do know that porn isn’t reality. Some people can also become a little obsessed with porn, enough that they can’t have healthy relationships. There’s also the issue of ethics in porn, some of the free stuff available is probably highly unethical.

On the whole I have no objections to anyone watching porn but I think personally I’m just becoming a little bored by it.

  1. I think it’s about finding porn that is real. not the porn that is perfect and well lit and so staged and the girl goes oh oh oh and comes immediately and ja, KEEP IT REAL FOR GODS SAKE PORNOGRAPHERS. Saying that, a bit of porn can be good, reading erotica is the best thing ever. And, yes, kids today are exposed to porn from a very young age, kinda scary, but I think they learn to differentiate between what is real and what is not. i think on porn women always orgasm and we all know that is not true, during sex, for everyone, so can be dangerous too. anyway, this answer to you is what i often want to write about but am too lazy!!

    1. You’re so right about it being perfect – perfection really doesn’t exist. Real sex can be hilarious or downright ridiculous at times – how often do you see that in porn? But it’s like so much of the media today – very little is real.

  2. I think we don’t give kids enough credit actually. I think for most of them they are fully aware of the difference between fantasy and reality and in my opinion it is a parents job to talk openly and honestly about the roll of porn, including the ethics of its making and how it can be part of a healthy sex life both on your own and with a partner if your partner likes it too obviously. Sadly sex education is still terrible and so many young people are getting their ‘how to do sex’ guide from porn and that can clearly be a problem

  3. Agreed, most people know it’s paid actors pretending to get off. What bothers me the most is the monotony–everyone’s beautiful, the guys all have enormous cocks, women all got big boobs, everyone is bare between the legs. (And I get really tired of the men pulling out and ejaculating on the woman’s face or stomach. WTF?) What I enjoy the most is passion, and you don’t see much of that in MF porn–deep kissing, real affection driving the lust. When I watch porn, it’s lesbian porn. Yeah, they’re acting, but usually (not always) it looks real, they’re making out the whole time. When porn gets dull, as it so often does, I turn it off and curl up with some good erotica!

    1. I think it’s that whole perfection thing that gets to me too. I try and find actors who look halfway real and I agree with you about lesbian porn, it often looks more realistic.
      I think the ejaculation thing is to prove the man’s actually come who knows, he could be faking it otherwise! Can’t have that 🙂

  4. I think the point you make about preferring erotica is interesting. I’ve never encountered any ‘good’ porn (although there must be some out there), but there is plenty of excellent erotica, and it’s the details in that, weirdly, that gets me off.
