porn on the cob

i was having a delightful conversation (yes, i fucking said delightful) about porn choices out there...aneris essentially asked where was the line between naked people taking a video of themselves and porn...

hmm...well, it's all porn, i said...but she was referring to fantasy-based porn...and i quipped that the difference between a professional and an amateur is that the professional gets paid...old line, but there you have it...

thus launched a discussion in the porn that fuels our state of arousal...i, on the one hand, enjoy amateur porn...it can be both arousing and funny at the same time...i just enjoy the fact that it is real people...

aneris, on the other hand, wants her fantasy porn to be specific...so there was the naked line...professional porn (whether well done or not) is very specific to a theme typically...there is a specific purpose for the porn...amateur porn is, as aneris put it, naked people taking a video of themselves...

some people do want their porn to fuel something particular...they use it to evoke/intensify a desire for something...

amateur porn could do that as well, although it can be really hit or miss....you could go for long extended periods of time where you are going "okay...hmm"...and you fast forward or walk away for a while...plus...EVERYONE thinks they are jenna jameson...and they are NOT...

"pro-porn" cuts out a lot of the nonsense and gets to the goods right away...no long date before the happy ending fuck...the most minimal of expository fluff and then wham!...asses, dicks, cunts, and holes are spread for the world to see in high def...

where do you stand on the porn fence?...i would LOVE to know what a few of you might think...;)

It absolutely has to be amateur. I haven't watched pro 'mass produced' porn for so long, I don't think I'd be into it anymore. Obviously there is good, high quality porn - but there's also a lot of fake bodies and fake orgasms out there too. With amateur you can see some really hot people, having really hot - but most importantly pretty much real sex, and that is what turns me on.

@jake - yes...when you watch real sex...it can be incredibly hot...pro porn is more distracting to me than arousing...

Amateur porn is so much better..as long as the video is good quality (no shaking, plenty of lighting and good angles). Seeing a couple people really into it, and that have normal bodies to boot, is my preference by far.

I swore off porn for a long time after being scarred by the fakeness and directness and heavy fetish elements in professional pornography. GreenWoman turned me on to amateur stuff through her jingles and jiggles posts and I haven't had a scary moment since! Besides all that, I think professional porn promotes stereotypes of behavior and appearances that are killing American society.

Percy said...

I don't watch much porn, but prefer amateur, like others said.. not actors, real bodies.. in pro porn do you see the women's faces? they look like they are in pain..

Aneris said...

Cg, you knew what I meant. I do not like the truly artificial looks but I do like good lights and good production elements. It is hard to find sexy porn.

I look at porn in the same way I look at fashion. It is not real.

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

See...I'm all about being able to *see* everything that's going on, and amateur porn frustrates me to no end. I gotta go pro.

curiousgirl said...

@comfy - i dont necessarily feel that these stereotypes are killing american society...what is killing american society is stagnancy...(hmm...i will post on this topic in my curiosities blog)

@percy - lol...i would have thought you would have a whole collection of porn to wank off to..

@aneris - i know...i just skimmed over it a bit...thanks for clarifying for everyone ;)

@miss i - you bring up a very valid point...pro porn has a variety of POVs to make the viewer feel like they are in the moment...

I'll be really interested in the results here. Your experiance mirrors ours. I Love "real" (amateur) porn and a little something to the imagination from barn angles and poor lighting, where my wife, like Ms. Inconspicuous (wow there's a phrase I never anticipated typing!) prefers it pro to see the action in hi res detail.

fly said...

amateur is the porn that does it for me. if i'm going to be aroused, i need to be able to believe that the participants are enjoying themselves as much as i would be if i were in their situation.

sometimes pro porn can do this, when the stars are decent actors and not doing silly shit. but i cannot stand the pro porn videos that show all manner of fucking and sucking that ought to make a guy blow his wad, then the final scene is a cut to the guy jacking himself into her mouth. WTF!

I'm an all the way amateur guy, I think the women look so much better without the surgical alterations that seem to be prevalent in the pro stuff.

I've got plenty of both in my extensive collection. Some pro porn DVDs are better than others. Some amateur DVDs are better than others. I like different ones at different times--pro, like you say, is paced faster and works best when I have just a few minutes to get off. But all else being equal, I prefer amateurs . . . especially since, like most amateurs, I'm far older than "barely legal."
