Amateur vs. Pornstars

AngelicaU AngelicaU 03/14/2011

I'd like to know which people prefer and why. I personally enjoy porn from both depending on the porn itself but I'm wondering what other peoples opinions are. Do you prefer amateur because it's usually more realistic, or do you prefer pornstars because they know what their doing and you can see more from them..? Anything you have an opinion in the comparison of these would be great.

Definitely amateur or at least amateur looking pornstars. The idea that it is real life normal people is so much more appealing than people getting paid to have sex.

It varies. Sometimes, I like seeing the pros, but amateurs do it for me sometimes.

For general viewing I usually go for amateur. But sometimes you just wanna see the people who are in a nicely lit and filmed scene.

Mostly amateurs. I find pro porn shoots to be rather boring.

Either or both... it all depends on the content and whether it's hot and juicy enough to get me hot and juicy. I'd probably lean towards amateur just because it's less choreographed and "raw" and not as scripted. Saying that though... there are some hot pornstar scenes so again it all depends on the actual content and "heat" in the scenes.

I'd say that's sort of both. Some are more on the amateur side but I'm sure there are some who know what they're doing pretty well and more like a pornstar but I guess amateur is best to sum it all up lol

I'm glad quite a few people answered this. I agree with a lot of you. The non scripted, natural scenes are sometimes better because you know that the girl is actually coming rather than just saying the words because she's supposed to. But on the other hand, it is nice to see everything clearly when it's done by professionals. Thanks guys

It really depends on what I'm looking for at any given time. I usually go for amateur but not always.

The more real is better to me. Amateurs all the way. Professional porn does not really turn me on. I love visually surprising, and exciting bodies that are revealed in amateur porn.

I prefer women who have not succumbed to the pressures of superficial-based industries like pornography, i.e. no implants or other cosmetic surgery.

It does depend on my mood, but in general I am more fond of the amateur porn. I just find it more realistic, and sometimes the couple involved actually seem to be passionate about each other - not just going through the motions. The scripted stuff seems so goofy and fake sometimes, and that just doesn't really do anything for me.

I noticed someone said they like drawn fantasy porn and written erotica. I didn't even think of that to add on here. Does anyone else enjoy those too? Or hentai?

I like real women. By that I mean that I want to have a mixture of different people to look at. I don't want to watch porn where all the actors are like 5ft 6, weigh 110 pounds and have blond hair and a tatoo on there back. Thats cool sometimes but I like variety. Sometimes I want to see red heads, sometimes I want to see a girl that is a little voluptous, and sometimes I don't want to see it shaved all the time. And you cant beat watching sex performed by people that really want to have sex with each other, and not just doing it for the money.

Amateur can be hot, but I have had trouble finding good amateur gay stuff. Jerk-off videos, are everywhere, but if I wanted to watch that, I would look down. Then I have to find something that is long enough to be worth watching, but not so long, it takes 10 minutes to get to any nudity. I like this kind of slowness in real life, but for porn, I just want to look at some cocks while I get off. Add in the fact that I want the guys to be attractive, and I may as well go for professional.

I do like amateur better because those are real people, no saying the stars are real. It's just that in amateur porn the people arent all made up and perfect looking.. I like to see a fat roll and uneven skin tone. Yaknow what everyday people look like. But i do watch non-amateur porn also

Bugger. Pressed the wrong one. Anyway, I sometimes like pornstars for the production values, but they do go a bit over the top. And conversely amateurs just try to be pornstars, which puts me off them.

Amateur defIntiely. More realistic. Especially like wives with black guys including gang bangs. Cuckold type of stuff. Also females performing hand jobs and blowjobs that really are into it. As well as couples doing anal.

I prefer the stuff thats on the cusp. Things with Indigo Augustine or Ruby Violence. They've got DVDs out so they're techically pornstars but they still have a clips4sale store so they do a lot of amateur work as well but they do it with that professional edge.

Amatuers definetly get me going waaay more than Porn Stars. It could be overexposure, or the general fakeness- fake boobs, fake tans, samey hair and makeup, fake personality that turns me off. Not to say i still dont occasionally enjoy mainstream porn, just not as much as a good old homemade movie.

The amatuers could learn a thing or two about lighting and camera angles though.

Because of the gap in technical abilities between professionals and amateur productions, I like photos of amateurs, but overall prefer professionals.

Ideally, amateur/newer girls shot by professionals.

I almost always opt for amateur, but I do follow a handful or pros and enjoy their films. I generally like knowing a little bit about the people in the porn I watch ...and that includes the amateurs. In a weird way I'm a fan of particular people in porn just like other people are fan of certain authors, directors, or video game companies.

I like the less scripted scenes, I dont like when they are obviously working for the camera. For me to enjoy the scene I need to see that they are actually enjoying it. Like when the girls are obviously not really into girl on girl and cant eat a girl out to save their life that kills it for me. I need them to Actually cum. Some amateur is fake and not good either so either way porn stars or amateur it needs to be real and the people have to be getting pleasure from it.

It's hard to say -- porn and porn stars generally just take the 'brute force' method, which is mostly just to show you everything and at some level, it will probably get most peoples' juices flowing. With amateur porn, it's a lot harder to determine what will be sexy to someone, because you introduce more variables. Camera angles and tanned, toned bodies are not always the ticket, though, definitely.

Porn stars provide the best 'fantasy' aspect, depending on whatever you're looking for... Whatever your pique is at the moment, whether it be huge breasts, huge ass, tiny, huge... Everything is comically catered to. Before I met my fiance, I was in love with Gianna Michaels. Yeah, professional porn IS less realistic than amateur porn, but for me, it's all about the fantasy!

DeadIzzy DeadIzzy
I don't think it really matters to me if it's pro or not. It's more about how good does the girl look and does she really seem to enjoy what she is enjoy herself. Although sometimes it can be sadly funny to watch some amateur videos because they're funny. Like I saw one video of this dude was supposed to be screwing his step sister but he couldn't keep a hard on. He was constantly jerking off trying to keep his dick hard. You would think he would have taken a Viagra or something. hahaha

Amateurs are more fun to watch in my opinion because theres a better chance its 'real' sex (or lust or taboo or horniness or whatever) and not actors acting no matter how good they are. I get that production quality adds a lot and if I'm going to watch actors I like the 'HD' stuff thats coming out now. Slow, no BS story, just people enjoying sex. Maybe that's what it is, I like knowing that people are actually enjoying the sex.

I like the amateur porn because the women are more often extraordinary (both skills and appearance) and the amateurs don't practise senseless positions very often. On the other hand, the camera is usually very poor, so it sometimes unables to see anything.
