Hardcore porn vs. Romantic porn

Hardcore porn vs. Romantic porn

Humor4Fun Humor4Fun 06/25/2011

There is a lot of demand for hardcore porn, people just having sex all over the place.

Personally, I (and my girlfriend) are much more interested in watching romantic porn, where we are introduced to some characters and given a reason to like them, then the music/acting build sexual tension and then they break into sex. But it is meaningful and erotic, and not just people fucking.

If I'm looking for porn, I do hardcore. I enjoy movies with romantic sex scenes, but that's not what I want when I'm ready to get off.

We both use Porn as a "background" to our activities and if they start talking too much..it is more of a distraction then enhancement. We have a couple of "romantic" porn DVD's, but they collect more dust then attention.

Hardcore for me. If I want romance, I could watch a romantic comedy.....but I don't. (I detest Romantic comedies, if I never see Vince Vauhn, Jennifer Aniston, Elizabeth Hurly, Julia Roberts and their ilk ever again, I'd be happy.)

I'm not much of a Romantic in any way. I do like when My Man does sweet things, like brings me flowers or candy or simply touches me in a romantic way in a random moment. But, I hate things associated with what I call "expected romance." When we watch porn, we want to see people fucking as well as everything that goes with it.

Porn is a tool and it serves a purpose. For us, its adding to a certain mood. We like to get into that mood fairly soon after starting the movies and plots and "romance" simply take up more time than we want to waste on it.

I really don't care for porn with a plot, or with character development (it's porn, why would you care?) if I want a plot of any kind, I prefer Indie movies, and My Man and I watch a lot of those.

I don't know if I'd break mine into "hardcore" or "romantic". Basically, I need a porn that has a decent story to it. It drives me insane when the sex scenes don't fit into the storyline. If that happens to involve romance to get the plot, I'm fine with that. If it doesn't, I'm okay with that too. I just find myself much more attached to characters if there is a back-story to the characters involved.

We are kind of in between. I prefer more hardcore, and my wife prefers more romantic. We therefore watch romantic when we watch together.

If we're watching it to get off or set the mood, then hardcore, no real plot. Otherwise I'm fast-forwarding through it all.
Some of them are watchable as movies, and I've enjoyed them, but then we're watching to watch, and not to really get off to the sex during the movie.

I can't stand porn that tries to have a plot. I just want to see sucking and fucking. I watch porn to get turned on; if it has a cheesy plot I'll just start laughing and it kills the mood.

New Sensations puts out a series of romanticized porn. You might like Almost Heaven. We recently reviewed it with Porn Club. For those who like romance this line might be the ticket.

Hardcore because we wouldn't make it all the way to the end of a romantic porn movie with a story.

Personally, I love porn with a plot; unfortunately, I worry that I rate porn too harshly when I review it. We watch porn like some people watch action flicks (with popcorn and everything...well and lube too). We love Manhunter, Desert Stormy, Layout and our all-time oldie-but-goodie favorite, The Puppeteer.

Yeah this is how I feel, if I'm going to watch porn I want fucking. I also realized I do not like to watch porn where the girl looks like she's having fun, so yeah no romantic porn for me.

Hardcore.
If i wanted "romantic" porn.. regular movies are so much better at setting a mood for me. Especially if I'm more interested in the characters.


Romantic porn usually seems too cold and rehearsed.

I can appreciate both; although I prefer porn having a romantic component. If anything it's just to fill up the void that is the performing lot's character. I dig storylines. It can involve great amounts of kink and dirtiness, just aslong as it is in any way crafted to have some depth.

I can only really take romantic porn, or at least something with a bit of a plot line. I've even tried writing porn before. Ha, the back story ended up being so long that I stopped writing it and put it on the shelf.

I wish there was an "other" option.

I generally don't want a story if I'm watching porn. That being said, I'm not the biggest fan of hardcore porn. I want to see people having sex, but I don't want it to be in the form that the porn industry wants us to watch people have sex. I don't like the pattern: a little bit of diddling, she chokes on his cock, he fucks her too hard, she fakes her orgasms, he cums on her face. It's a caricature of what good sex should be.

I generally read erotica for this reason. I've had better luck with finding things I like more in reading it. Occasionally, I have found clips I really like, but they're usually from alternative sources, featuring real people having sex and really enjoying it.

I don't care if it's romantic or whatever. I just want it to be genuine, not forced in the name of the almighty dollar.

it depends on what the show is about. if its too soft and slow its kinda boring to me... if its all only about sex yes its a turn on but I also want a mix of both really. I'm not too big into plot since I dont want to watch some girl getting dressed for 20mins in a skimpy lingerie that they could have done before hand! Yes she is hot and it looks good but I would like to see it coming off not on LOL

I've never actually seen romantic porn. I'm quite content with my hardcore porn, though. A lot of the time, if I'm getting off, I just want to get off. I don't want to have to sit through a bunch of storyline to get to the sex. I just want the sex.

Definitely hardcore. It is sometimes nice to have some brief scenario for the scene but full plot based is not necessary. Too much story and romance has a negative effect on the replay value for me.

Romantic, but to me that's not the same as draw-out stories and 'bad acting'. I prefer the type of porn that's got romance & seduction in it, even if it just leads to a collection of hardcore scenes. Does that make sense?

But if it's something I'm reading, like a short story or novel, sometimes I do like the element of romance.
