Am I weird? A poll about porn.

OK, I am getting on to being middle aged, (a woman does not have to specifically tell how old OK) and I have only ONCE seen a porno movie…and that was when I was a mere chicken of 18.

After reading heaps of threads/posts about movie-type porn, I started to wonder whether I am missing out on something, or whether I am somehow ‘strange’ in that I haven’t checked any out in so many years.

Are there any others out there who are as ‘innocent’ as moi?

Maybe it has nothing to do with innocence but interest, choice or preference. I view certain things as “do I want to be a spectator or a participant?” So I’d rather do sports than watch them. I’d rather travel to foreign countries than watch armchair travel shows.

I’ve only seen three.
They were provided to me as a ‘gift’ when the SO was pregnant.:smiley:
I had to watch them one (each).
I don’t think you’re innocent, I think you may have discriminating taste and a desire for storyline rather than simple action.

Well, from what I understand, many pornos have some sort of storyline. It’s just painful to watch people who aren’t being paid for their acting ability try to act.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a whole porn. I’ve caught bits and pieces over the years, but I’ve never actually rented or bought one myself. I find the thought of a single guy renting/buying a porno to be depressing. And sitting around with a bunch of guys and watching one is just plain weird and uncomfortable for me.

So no, I don’t think it’s strange.

I was waiting for a closed-captioned one to come out, never did.

I’ve never seen a porn video. I’ve had ample opportunity since I started college, but I’m just not interested.

Nah, it’s not that I’ve actively avoided watching such a movie…I don’t have a particular opinion about them one way or the other really. It’s more that
a) It has never occured to me (until NOW) to see what the fuss is about, and
b) I’ve never been in the situation where I had to make a choice about whether to ‘view’ or not.
What I’m wondering is whether others have had such little exposure to such fillums. (BTW, I’m not really ‘innocent’ either!!)

Nah, I don’t think you’re that wierd. I’ve never seen a porn film either. Nobody’s ever invited me to and I really have no desire to seek them out on my own.

I’ve glanced through porno mags and found them alternately amusing or disturbing, but not arousing. Don’t get me wrong, I love sex, but unless I’m one of the participants, I don’t particularly want to watch it.

Don’t worry about being so “innocent”, kambuckta. My debauchery will more than cover for it. :wink:

If it wasn’t for the group of friends that I am inclined to hang out with I would be as “innocent” as you are kambuckta. I guess not everyone is blessed with friends who really enjoy the stuff.

Say…there’s an idea: Porn actors/actresses fluent in ASL!

I always wanted to see what, “Uh, uh, ahh, ahh, mmmmm, ooh ooh oh oh oh Yes YES YES!” looked like in sign language.

Never saw one either, except for little snippets on cable, when we had cable. Wouldn’t even know where to get one. Prefer the real thing to watching others.

Count me in. I have never seen a full porn, maybe ten minutes of one that my boyfriend at the time was watching with one of his guy friends. Call me a prude if you will, but watching two people get it on makes me feel like I’m invading their privacy in a weird way.

Yes, kambuckta, you are most definitely weird. :slight_smile:

But what does that question have to do with porn?

:d&r:

BTW, I find many R-rated movies which scrren on free to air far mroe erotic than the X-rated crap people may mega-bucks for.

I’ve seen lots of them… I think they are hilarious. Even when my husband and I use them to actually…uh…well for their purpose… we still end up bursting out laughing quite frequently over something stupid in the video.

I’ve caught softcore-HBO/Cinemax type porns occassionally, at slumber parties where we would watch out of curiosity and start giggling.

Most of them were incredibly lame and stupid. I don’t know, I think porn is kind of dumb.

I like a good, romantic old-fashioned drama. YOu know, with Gregory Peck, Omar Sharif, Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, Clark Gable, etc. They didn’t have to rely on super manufactored pecks and oil and lots of skin. All they needed to be sexy was a slow, smoldering look, or a simple kiss on the hand…

Is it getting warmer in here, or is it me?

I don’t know about in the US, but in most of the X-rated movies we get here the women appear to be wearing the same tacky shade of purple nail polish - which cosmetics manufacturer is supplying them (and can we arrange a boycott, it’s a truly awful colour)?

The only thing I have ever learned how to say in ASL is “I want to take you into the sack.”

Don’t ask.

Even better, what would a porn movie that employs Descriptive Video Service be like? (DVS is the addition of an audio track that describes the action and allows blind people to follow a movie)

(female voice) “Mmmmm, oooohhhh, ah ah ah ah AHHHHH!”
(DVS voice) “The scene is a hairy bobbing man-ass.”
