I don't watch much of it, because I don't like the "Oh, it's a porn" feeling. If there were more 'real' people just having a good time, I'd like it much more.

much more interested in reading my porn, actually. same with my partner. strangely, we find that live action porn comes across too fake for us, but reading about fictional sex gets us going more. can actually seem more real. but same problems there with finding quality work. luckily we went to writing/art school and have a bunch of talented friends who are also pervs

I totally agree about finding quality work (erotic stories) being hard. Sometimes the work is so amateur(very limited vocabulary or the story is just terrible).

I sometimes write erotic short stories for myself and my partner which I reread and masturbate to or use to get us aroused for a very heated love making session.

I will watch porn (and I watch a lot of it very often) mostly alone rather than with my partner (my partner is the same) and weirdly enough we are both shy when put in the context of being watched masturbating to our selected porn.
However, if we look at it together and I blow him or we engage in sexual contact we are totally comfortable. I think it has to do with being shy about choosing something that turns us on or the whole being caught masturbating thing but I am not too sure yet. I feel that we are very open and have good communication and we pretty much know what either one likes.
We mutually encourage one another to masturbate when we are not at the same libido level so it has nothing to do with shame associated to trying to hide sneaky masturbating sessions bcs one is not satisfied and wants to keep it from the girlfriend or wife kind of thing.

Weird but funny at the same time

Honestly we don't think watching porn is terribly healthy for anyone. So neither of us watches it, though we may someday video ourselves and wouldn't mind watching that. The same for erotic fiction - we'll use it if it's about us.

You're entitled to that opinion. I think it does benefit some people though, and in my opinion it's not in an unhealthy way.

I need to steer clear of controversial topics late at night - that probably came off more know-it-all-ish than I meant it. I don't think porn is helpful for my husband and me, and I've seen a number of marriages where it was hurtful, so I do tend to be wary of it. But I'm certainly not going to argue over the point or try to make you stop or anything like that.

And I am sorry if anyone was offended.

I totally understand where you're coming from.

I have nothing against people who watch porn, but it's really not for me... I use it on the rare occasion just to get excited, but not to get off to.

I *want* to like porn. But I'm not a big fan. Guy porn kind of freaks me out - I told my brother once (he'd jokingly asked if I'd include porn in care packages), that I would judge a man on the quality of his porn. A lot of it, to me, is weird or degrading towards women. It's why I can't walk into an adult store to search for porn. I end up completely turned off and unable to even think about sex. X(

The mainstream 'couples' porn has some of the same pitfalls of regular 'guy' porn. I'm just not a fan of overly large, augmented breasts swinging around in their unfluid-like way during sex. I end up distracted. Or breasts not moving at all. It's an aesthetic issue. And to date, I've only seen one porn star who *really* moved me. Jean Val Jean. Nice face, nice body, not over-the-top with muscles, etc.

Then there's chick porn. Candida Royalle has some fairly interesting movies, but I often end up with the same aesthetic issue. Looking normal is fine (Rebecca Love is a good example of a normal looking gal, though maybe a bit prettier), but that's rarely the case. Girls are either *very* good looking with a lot of work (make-up, plastic surgery, perfect body, whatever), or not good looking at all. Playgirl, imo, has to be the most boring porn ever. >_<

The best visual stimulation I've gotten came from certain Zalman King productions and a tv series from years ago called Bliss. That first ep of Bliss still sends my temp through the roof. Maybe I need believable erotic dialogue?

I admit, though, that I haven't tried lesbian porn. No reason, just never had a good recommendation for any.

I always do this but... Tristan Taormino. Her movies are pretty awesome.

Also, some of the stuff from Burning Angel.

I want to like the stuff from Burning Angel on principle, but for some reason it just doesn't do it for me. The last one I saw had an elaborate (for porn) plot about Joanna making soup and the guy having sex with her sister after sending Joanna out for oregano, and later for paprika. The premise was vaguely creepy to me and paprika in soup? It was weird and unsexy. But I have a couple friends who love Burning Angel productions, that's just my personal opinion.

There's no pattern to what visual porn I like, it seems to have more to do with how much the actors are (believably) into it more than whether it's M-F, M-M, F-F, etc. If the actors look detached and bored it's no go for me.

I checked that I watch porn alone and with a partner, but I feel I should qualify it.
I don't watch "mainstream" porn anymore. I did when I was younger, but it didn't do much for me because it just didn't seem like real sex. Now I watch things like from Pink & White productions. Those type of movies seem more real to me and don't make me feel ugly and fat like mainstream porn tends to.

You know what I really think would make porn appeal to more women? Taking a leaf from softcore's book.

I know that sounds crazy, but hear me out. When my bestie and I were really young, her parents had HBO, and I'd sleep over her house and--as children are wont to do--we'd watch the softcore porn they played in the wee hours of the morning. Softcore porn doesn't necessarily fulfill me, since there's no actual sex, but it DOES turn me on more than almost any other kind of porn out there...because there's actual foreplay! Because softcore can't show penetration or focus on genitals for long periods of time, the actors get to spend a lot more time caressing, kissing, and just enjoying each other's bodies.

It slows things down, and it's not something I'd want every day. But I honestly think that the way they have to "draw things out" in softcore allows the actors to be more comfortable and connected with each other, providing a more sensual and believable porn experience, and I think that's something hardcore could benefit from, rather than perfunctory foreplay followed by nothing BUT hardcore sex with very little chemistry.

I use to LOVE porn. Couldn't get enough. It started out just as something my husband and I watched together. And slowly built up. I soft core hard core fetish it didn't matter. But now I'm porned out. It does nothing for me anymore. If I'm going to watch porn now, I go lean more towards amateur. Mainstream porn just doesn't seam like real sex for me either.

Mainstream porn normally has me in fits of laughter because of the ridiculous crap storylines. Hardcore fetish I like. Erotica, reading I prefer over watching porn these days. I have watched porn with and without a partner, no big deal.

I watch a wide variety of porn, and I watch it by myself. I'd love to watch it with my partner, but while he's a porn lover he just can't bring himself to watch with me. He says that it's one thing he's too shy about to do in front of me, like he can't bring himself to jerk off in front of me.

I tend not to like porn aimed at women, because I usually couldn't care less about a storyline, though I love foreplay. I end up fast forwarding through the plot bits. I watch a wide variety otherwise. The only things I completely steer clear of are very intense BDSM and humiliation, amateur involving people my parents age or older, some fetishes, and lesbian (which is strange, because I enjoy watching just about any other grouping, from M-M and M-F to orgy).

I watch a variety of porn with my Husband. Mostly those with story lines. We usually find something we would like to try while watching, so it works out for me.

Thank god I'm not the only woman that feels this way. I know a lot of women like the story, and I can understand why, but I am always like 'Get to the reason we're watching, already!!!'

My husband watches as well, but interestingly enough, he'd never watched porn until I showed him one...

We often cuddle up in our evening sanctuary with a porn movie instead of watching primetime tv like most people do, but unless it has an interesting storyline or we're planning to review it for EF, it winds up as just quiet background noise that doesn't actually get watched all that much.
There's some that we've encountered that have been literally tossed in the trash within the first fifteen minutes though, and I'm much more likely to trash a movie than Alan is.

Love it alone or with a partner. Helps me focus and get creative.

I felt weird selecting "Eww, I hate porn!" because I felt like I was criticizing and labeling it as bad. It's just on something that we like to watch.

I selected alone and hardcore. I love porn, but my partner isn't into it or sex toys and actually doesn't like me owning them. Therefore, I try to take some me time for masturbation and porn.

Sometimes we watch porn, but pretty infrequently. We're kinda snobby about what we'll watch. Most of the porn we've ever found we weren't happy with. Sometimes it's the appearance of the porn stars, sometimes it's the plot.

Most of the time we hate the annoying sounds that porn actresses make when they are trying to pretend they enjoy it. I also hate spitting in porn. Like, really, I know there are all kinda body fluids going around everywhere, but is it too hard to keep a bottle of lube handy?

We usually opt for some hentai instead.
