PORN!!!!!!

dykehalo's picture

So most people look at porn... I know i do. However a lot of people view it as "wrong" or "dirty". I've been thinking about posting a forum topic about this for a while however i've been getting side tracked... But anyways that's not the point.
What are your views on porn?
Should it be kept to those above the legal age (18 ish most places)?
Who should be allowed to make porn and at what age?
Basically telll me what you think about porn.

Well...

I don't know how I feel about the viewing age since I'm still not 18 and well... As for makingn it I believe 18 should be the age.

Ride hard or stay home.

Do they react that way because of who we are or because of your personality?

Heh, it doesn't really

Heh, it doesn't really matter what the age restriction is because it's so easy to DL the stuff off of (deleted). Lesbians have it easy though, there's so much lesbian porn it's crazy.

(Note from Jeff: We can talk about porn on here, but let's not link to it.)

I won't lie, I look at porn... a lot.

I think the age minimum is right, though I would personally never get into it myself. I have more self respect than that.

i admit i look. curiousity

i admit i look. curiousity and hornyness comes over me time to time and it just sucks being...unsatisfied lol. but in some ways it's good that there's a restriction but other times it's not.

for the being part of porn part...nah i'd never see myself doing that and i hope any girl i get involved with never does it too. i think that although it's interesting to watch...i think that it's not worth doing. selling you body. but hey that's what i think just like underdarkness says "i have more self respect than that" and if anyone decides to get into the business...i'm not stopping you but just know what you're getting into and consider your decision wisely.

I remember at school girls

I remember at school girls used to always deny they masturbated, then you get a bit older and it all comes out as hog wash :P

I look at porn all the time. What can I say, I'm just one of those horny people. The vast majority are more interested in sex related stuff than people let on and the Internet has been a MAJOR element of releasing the taboo of sex. Suddenly all these anonymous people are able to find every sick and sordid fantasy without any/hardly any risk of being caught. It's not even an assumption, it's backed up by facts. Statistics of websites like Google and Wikipedia show how interested we all are in sex. For example, look at the top 100 viewed pages at Wikipedia. The top 100 includes Sex, Sexual Intercourse, Pornography, List of sex positions, Masturbation, Vagina, Oral sex, Penis, Anal sex, Breast, List of male performers in gay porn films, Nudity and human penis size. 13/100 sex-related. Admittedly, the page admits the data MAY be out/misleading, but by that much? I doubt it.

People do very interesting things when they think nobody is looking, you let a perfectly so-called "respectable" person alone in a room with the internet, and sooner or later they will look up porn or at the very least read about it. Sex is natural, we're all interested in it and it starts cropping up at an early age really. How many of us have looked up "sex" in the school dictionary and giggled with our 11 year old friends? Or was that just my sordid school? :\ Sex being a taboo causes much much much more damage/hassle in countries or communities where people are discouraged from talking about it. That's not to say I'm a slut of course, I'm not, and I wouldn't personally choose to be a porn star, but I mean I am very skeptical of anyone who says they have never been interested in porn or don't look at it (especially men).

i think it's good that you half to be 18 to get the real stuff. i'm not legal yet *looks guilty* but even i have looked a couple of times. not in a long time though, because i have to much respect for men and women to sit and see that anymore. i mean i don't know if it's wrong or anything, but for the "actors" to put themselves it those sort of situations....i dunno.

I look at porn. Often. Once,

I look at porn. Often. Once, Twice a day or more. I think that there is nothing wrong with it. I know that there are a lot of people who have hang ups on masturbation and porn and sex in general. I find a lot of these hang ups are completely unfounded and are just ways that society keeps it's comfort blanket on. I think that porn should be allowed for 16 year olds. Or something like that. I mean, fuck, I live in canada and people are allowed to drive @ 16. It makes no sense that people are allowed behind the wheel by 16 but they figure letting them whack off to porn is too much of a stretch. *meh*. I really don't see why people always have to freak out. It's just sex. I mean, yea, sex can hurt and it is a big thing, but I don't know why people have attached all of the negative stigma to it. I agree with campfire: attaching taboos to sex is what makes it such a dangerous thing. If we could be more open about it, it would make sex less dangerous--people would get eductated. People would use protection more. *jeez* I just don't know why it's such a difficult thing... But yea, there's my opinion.

Courage is contagious... be strong, and soon you won't be standing alone.

I... er... have, like, 10

I... er... have, like, 10 tabs open of really pretty erotica pics that my friend routinely sends me. I look at porn quite a bit. I'd say that the age limit on viewing should be c. 13 or 14: about when someone is old enough to actually be all horny and libido-y. Because, honestly, with the internet, it wouldn't make a difference if you forbade people under 100 to look at porn, they'd figure out a way to do it anyway. But I don't have time or awake-ness to really give an opinion on the objectification, taboo, etc... I'm off to look at more porn ^^

Life is short: make fun of it.

utter_insanity's picture

YES

I completely agree. I love porn/erotica, and I know that many of my classmates at school do too. I mean, honestly, why isn't it legal for horny middle schoolers to look at porn? It seems kind of silly to me that people my age aren't supposed to look at porn. The whole thing is all about "protecting" us from things that may disturb us, but the fact is, we can handle it. I think it's strange that the law is trying to protect us from things that many teens like to see.

Well, for the first time

Well, for the first time yesterday I watched porn. All types, too. I wasn't horny or anything, just curious. As pathetic as it may sound, I was seeing if watching porn can tell me anything about my sexuality.... Anyway, I discovered that I'm not too interested in porn. Sure, it does something, but only a little. But *shrugs* I think porn is okay. Some people really enjoy, and others like me think, "eh, that's something new." I think it's perfectly fine for those who like it, just as long as it doesn't control your life. Though, I have heard of people who do get addicted to it. Anyway, I would never make porn for the public. Others who choose to must think a lot about themselves to do all these things without shame. I just think sex is something very personal and should be shared between the participants, whether it be 2, or 3,.....

Porn

I don't think much of it one way or another. I've watched a few flicks, (Caligula was SICK!!!!!!!!) I've written a hell of a racy scene in the last section of my book, written some poems where I subtly made fun of it, I went through a Harold Robbins phase when I was 13/14, used a couple of porn shots for models for my own drawings, and I think age restrictions are pointless. I mean, I checked out Playboy mags when I was a young 'un, and duhhhhhh. It made no difference to me, or my evolution.

I'm pretty flat on it. Got bored with it, I guess. Most of it is silly, the standard flicks have the worst dialog, and I guess it's just another form of entertainment that I'm no longer interested in. (I like novelty, and there's only so much you can do, ya know?)

Hmm. Well, getting back to

Hmm. Well, getting back to the question about being age restricted (to 18 where I am), I agree that the age restriction is completely useless because of the internet. Most of the people I know (who are over 18), on their 18th birthdays, went and made the rounds - strip club, cigarettes, porn. Not because they were particularly interested in any of it, but because they could, you know? Really though, in an American high school, you'd be hard pressed to find a kid who had NEVER looked at porn. Point in case - the internet.
I don't have a particularly strong opinion on porn I guess, in much the same way that I don't have a particularly strong opinion on macaroni and cheese. It's out there, and sometimes, it's damn good, but you have to be in the right mood to enjoy it. Hahaha, I need to stop making bad jokes. The only actual serious thought I've ever had about it was that it's really obnoxious when internet porn gives your computer viruses. You're standing in line at the computer store, holding your poor, decrepit laptop, and it's all you can do to ignore the sheer irony of supposedly free porn causing hundreds of dollars worth of computer problems. XD

Honestly, I will admit to

Honestly, I will admit to watching porn a few times. Come on--I'm a teenager!
But also, I don't feel the need to do it frequently. Idk it's all a matter of choice, and seriously the age thing is stupid. Putting an age limit on something only makes it more desirable! Doing anything to discourage something is going to make it more interesting! It happens with swearing and drinking and smoking right? So really it's just doing the opposite of what you want it to do.

No one really follows the age restrictions anyhow, atleast not in NC, I'm 16 and I can pretty much buy anything, especially when it's gay porn because most of the times it's a little akward for the cashiers anyhow, so they don't ask questions.

i dunno

I've never really seen porn plus it doesn't interest me. I don't know I just don't care to see someone get laid, kinda boring.

raining men's picture

Meh

I never actually liked porn myself but I don't object to it. I suppose the age could be lowered to 16, but then again there is enough abuse as it is. The shittiness of the porno business is obviously bad, but then again banning it is hardly going to make it better

Yea

Yea, I've watched porn before it doesn't really do anything for me though. I could find something better to do. I think the age should be 16. At age 16 most teens have already seen porn. Hell, I caught my brother watching porn when he was 14 it was girl on girl so I took the video out and told him he's too young and then I watched it. Haha, I know he wasn't too happy I took it. I'm a bitch I know it:)

porn

i dont really get why there are restrictions to porn i mean every body does it anyway to there own pleasure and it releases stress for kids at school.
besides it is a great way to figure it out on your own it weirds u out and digustes you when your parents tell u. i myself look at porn its healthy too but we r all afraid of getting caught and sent to jail it may prevent ideas of rape. there will be less ideas of raping younger children of the opposite sex. why is it bad? people feel uncomfortable about talking about there lives beacause they feel guilty on what they do on teh internet. its hard to agree on things for example. for 4 years i have been talking to my freind about sex
and been making jokes about it. we get along fine but when talking to my less mature in sex freinds i have hard times talking to them cause i might weird them out gross them out people of all ages should be able to look and know about sex it gives an early educational remembrance. dont get me wrong i dont think that some kids should know this stuff without knowing the dangers without doing it carefully if they want to look at porn they need education on hiv and other diseases. for the safety. u all know this and know why people are doing stuff on the internet we r lonely we r shy we like others more than freinds. we know all of this so dont be afraid girls if u want relations with men go out there and ask them cause they might not know u like u men usually say yes to girls for dates its hard for them cause they dont know much about what u girls want and who u like.

I think it makes sense for

I think it makes sense for it to be 'restricted' for people under 16, I don't think there's anything so wrong with people looking, and nothing wrong with doing it often (I look but I don't erm... touch, which sounds weird but I never get so riled up as to do it), I don't think it'd be the greatest thing in the world for a person age 10 or under to see some of the freaky things out there by accident though.

The fact is that these days, any person over the age of 8 with a brain will look at what they want, if they want to. It's pretty similar to actual sex that way - if two 12 year olds have the compulsion to do it, they'll probably find a way - restrictions or not. Besides, once you realize that there's no scary cops or malicious people watching your every click or word typed on the web, it gets a lot easier to keep going.

I haven't been on here in a while...

but i decided to stop in a check out the topics, and whadya know. I was looking at porn when I got here.
I think porn is a great thing. It helps to release sexual tension for those who "can't get action". Also, I believe that anyone who is old enough to think will look at porn whether it be because they are horny, or because of curiosity. Age restriction is put in place for the protection of those not yet legal adults, but why bother? They will look anyway.

I'm happy that I am over the legal age, though. Now I can watch it all i want with no one to object.

Interesting... I just had to purge 40 PAGES of anonymous comments from the site (all posted in less than 24 hours). Many were in this forum, so I think titling something porn was like bait for spammers, once it got picked up by a spider, we got nailed, heh. Oh well, I shut off the anonymous comments. Adrian should beputting in a new system to let non-member participate, like typing in a string of characters or something. Logged-in users will be unaffected by whatever he does.

porn porny porn porn!

I don't think it's "wrong" or "dirty", because IT'S JUST SEX, and sexual activity between consenting people isn't wrong or dirty. I think that porn in which people are fucking animals, abusing children, or doing anything non-consentual is EXTREMELY wrong and disturbing. Generally though, porn is just totally FAKE, and that's what turns me off about it. I mean, everything from the actors' physicality to the dialogue to the crazy positions... it's just SO unrealistic. The laws restricting porn to 18 and up aren't too effective. I know that most kids watch it at younger ages, and if a kid wants porn, they'll get it cuz its just so accessible these days. The 'net, HELLO? For a lot of kids, porn is the first place where they learn about sex, which is kinda fucked up. There is way too much sex on TV and in regular movies, porn is just a more hard-core extention of that. Since I've actually had sex, I understand that porn does not accurately depict sexual relationships and the significant emotional impact that's a part of it. Porn is just like any other vice- drinking, smoking, weed, junk food, etc- in small quantities it can make you feel good, but it's easy for people to go overboard to the point where it becomes detrimental to their physical/emotional health and personal relationships.
If I felt like watching porn, it would be girl-on-girl, cuz I don't get excited about some dude hopped up on Viagra with an abnormally large cock fucking some chick up the ass and then jizzing all over her face... NO thanx. This might be cuz I'm a gay lady. If I ever get into a relationship with a girl whose into it, I would definetely like to film us making love. I've always been curious to see how I'd look on the screen. A lot of people probably have secret pornstar fantasies, I'm just comfortable enough with sex/my body that I think trying it out would be totally fun/HOT. I'm legal age, but I'd never put it out to the public or anything... it would just be for my own personal viewing! :o)

Oz/Tara? Seriously? I never heard of that before. O.O Dude, where do shippers come up with that? I thought it was made pretty clear in Buffy that Tara's gay all the way. What do people call that ship, anyway? Taroz? Ozra?

Faith/Buffy is awesome, though. Faith is so hot. Is it legal for someone to be that hot? :D Yeah, I saw Fuffy subtext, too. If only it weren't just subtext, and they could actually make out with each other on the show, instead of Buffy getting it on with Angel and Riley...

I actually remember seeing some Buffy/Willow subtext one time in the series. I remember there was this one episode where they were still in high school and were just about to graduate. They were sitting under a tree, and Buffy told Willow, "You know what, Willow? I think I kind of love you." I SWEAR, it was canon! I don't even remember what they were talking about (maybe something about their futures and what was going to become of them, etc. I really don't know), but at the time, my inner fangirl screamed, "SQUEE!" It was scary.

As for the age, for buying porn, it's not like the age thing really does any good because people can get it no matter what their age is. For being in porn, I agree with the age limit. Actors and actresses in porn films should be legal adults.

I figure anyone who wants to look at porn will--so I don't really have an opinion on the age thing. When it comes to making porn I definitely think the whole legal consenting adult bit should be in place, so in the States that would make people 18.

I don't really look at porn, but I've had lots of fascinating discussions about it at school--liberal women's college, I have classmates that have had get togethers with friends just to analyze it.

Personally, I prefer good literotica.

My older sister and I once made fun of crappy cable porn. That was amusing...Probably one of my best memories...Buuuut...Porn is porn and it always will be. I think that legal ages mean NOTHING when you've got the internet and cable T.V. There's porn "on demand" if you've got Comcast cable. I don't know if that's just a WA state thing. But HBO or some such channel has porn for free. And people who make porn...What ever makes you happy. Would I ever make porn? No. Would I make a racy sex video (Paris Hilton comes to mind) if I was in a long term commited relationship, maybe. But only if I was the ONLY one with the copy and it was under lock and key. I would not be one more chick with a sex tape all over the internet. BUT you should be of consenting age if you're gunna go all porn star. 18.

Y'KNOW WHAT?

porn was created for people to be creative whenever they have sex with somebody; it's like a food appetizer, y'know when the appetizer kinda tickles your palate? porn's like that too. but now, porn's totally distorted, it became a medium for women oppression cuz porn sees women as objects right? and that kindda leads to domestic violence and rape and all those stuff.
