Porn

I feel like porn can be a terrible influence on the mind.

It's obviously great in the short run. You jizz, cum, get your rocks off, blow your load, or whatever other hilarious way you want to describe that fact that semen comes out of your purple-headed yogurt slinger. Gross, dude. I liked my dick before that analogy.

The problem actually isn't pornography per se.

Being a pedophile used to be chill, apparently

A sexual painting on a vase, a few nudie photographs or even a small box full of pornographic video tapes were all within the realm of what I'd consider "reasonable pornography". Now, however, we (not me, of course) can look up whatever crazy shit we can imagine and find a nearly endless supply of it.


Most of us had our first orgasm as a result of something pretty vanilla. My first homo eruption was to a picture of shirtless soldier dude with a six pack wearing cameo pants. Kinky! And yeah, I know one of you had your first orgasm to, like, some bro strapped in leather being fisted by twelve hippos or some shit. That doesn't even make sense. Exactly, man. Exactly. No one cares.

Most of us began somewhere pretty standard and probably still relied heavily on our imagination and real people to reach climax. This was partly due to lack of material, or at least lack of quality material. Today's interwebs are rife with sexy bro dudes looking all perfect and banging each other in unrealistic ways, for unrealistic amounts of time. Not to mention a baker's dozen of light and camera men making sure everything's glistening or not-glistening in the right ways.


The result is that people narrow their sexual fantasies to an insane degree. I was talking to one reader who said that he could only get off to watching two guys with perfect bodies having rough doggie style sex. And there are people out there with much more specific fetishes. Like hippos.

There's nothing wrong with having a fetish or being interested in some less traditional sexual stuff. At all. The issue arises when you fuck your brain into a state where you can only get off to watching niche porn. The same dude, and actually one other reader, was telling me that they sometimes find it hard to get off when they're with real guys because they aren't as hot as the guys in porn and/or the type of sex they have doesn't meet the same standards.

Personally, I believe that good sex is kind of like good porn. I also believe that having good actual sex is far superior to hand-porn-sex. I would concede, however, that bad sex or sex with someone that doesn't spin your propeller is basically a waste of time and you might as well let your handbro take care of business.

It's definitely a good idea to both cut down on the porn, and to try to reintegrate your imagination (i.e. your brain) into the equation. I know it's rough being non hetero sometimes, especially if you don't live in a city, and the time between bang seshes can be long as shit, but stay strong, y'all. It's hard to undo severe pornographic brainwashing.

Cuddle porn?


Hippos.



What's yours?

  1. I agree that too much porn does create too high expectations that all sex will be like a porno. It you ever saw how porn is made, it's a lot of stopping and restarting with lots of editing to make the scenes look perfect. As long as you go in with realistic expectations, porn can be useful and entertaining.

    Even though I'm totally gay, I have watched S8 porn, especially black guys. I know, I've fallen for the black guy stereotype that all of them are huge. It was when I was just starting out and I didn't know any better.

  2. I actually don't like pure-sex porn. I'd rather watch something like Latter Days or Boy Culture than porn pretty much any time. I tend to get off on making the other guy(s) get off. Most of my hot fantasy dreams would be pretty boring porn scenes if you filmed them - things like sailboats or sleeping bags in the woods or shit.

    1. No problem with liking niche porn.

      "The issue arises...where you can *only* get off to watching niche porn."

      Read.

      Also didn't say anyone "should give up porn". Suggested some on the aforementioned slippery slope might want to "cut down" and/or "reintegrate" their imagination.

      You do illiterate you, bro.

  5. Good post. Agree. I think that porn creates this unachievable standard in the minds of so many men. They've seen so many guys in porn that no real guy measures up. They judge everyone on looks and almost no one can meet the high standard. 99% of guys don't have 8" cocks, a six pack and massive chest. Porn distorts reality and keeps guys from having real relationships.

  6. Plus, porn can take up way too much time for something that provides only transient satisfaction. If your goal is sexual pleasure, it makes more sense to put your time and energy into activities that will lead to good, actual sex, like working out at the gym or going out to meet people.
