I’m Torn: Watching Porn

‚ By 

Porn Star ThreesomeWhile hanging out with some girlfriends this weekend, the topic of conversation kept coming back to porn. It wasn’t shocking to be discussing such a taboo topic (in graphic detail), but I was shocked to find out that I’m the only one who doesn’t watch it regularly.

“Dude, you’re single. How do you not watch!?” My friends looked at me in horror. They had favorite sites, saved searches and paid memberships!

I felt a little left out so I spent a bit of time “researching” last night. After a few hours of work I can totally see where the girls are coming from – some of it was quite…er…entertaining – but I’m just not sure if I’m a porn watching kinda gal.

Help. I’m torn.

Love It:
A girl’s gotta please herself once in awhile and the best way to get inspired is by watching other people being pleased, right? I mean, I guess you could just let your imagination run wild, but why should you when you’re just a click away from some really good stuff? You don’t need a boyfriend or a one-night stand; all you need is some porn and a lock on your door and you’re good. to. go.

And it’s also a really good learning opportunity. I consider myself to be an experienced sex-er, but there is always more to learn. There are positions and techniques that I didn’t even know existed until I watched – things the guys in the film really liked – which I will most definitely be trying out when this drought comes to an end.

Loathe It:
Even though I’m doing it in the privacy of my own room, watching porn makes me feel…weird. I’m not some horny 18-year-old boy, so it just feels wrong to bookmark porn websites on my computer. And while I love having sex, the thought of watching someone else do it makes me uncomfortable.

And don’t even get me started on all the inaccuracies present in most professional porns. The fake boobs, fake hair, fake orgasms;  the completely bare nether regions; the totally scripted dirty talk. I get so caught up in critiquing/laughing at half of these videos that I can’t do what I came to do.

And then the ick factor comes back. Seriously, watching porn makes me feel so gross.

I’m not really sure what to think. I want to like porn – mostly because I’ve been single since Palin was tapped to be McCain’s running mate – but I’m not so sure if I can do it. Thoughts?
