I know, I know. Shock. Surprise. Gasp.

It’s just never done much for me. I don’t dislike porn, I just don’t understand what the craze is about.

Now, look, every once in a while one comes across an image or something late night on HBO that she doesn’t mind staring at and using later, but actively seeking pictures or movies has never been something I’ve put my time into. Not because I’m not a sexual person, not because I’m embarrassed, and not because I think it’s “wrong” for girls to enjoy pornography.

I just don’t like it.

For one thing, the guy is never attractive. If he’s not hairy, he’s fat. If he’s not fat, his face looks like it got run over by a truck. A big dick doesn’t make you hot. It just means you’ve got a big appendage attached to and ugly face. There’s nothing less fantasy-worthy than a good-looking girl getting rammed by a gross dude—at least for a woman. It just reminds me of all the mistakes I’ve made.

Secondly, I find hard-core pornography disgusting. There’s nothing gross about the sexual act, but there is something unappealing about a 10-minute close up of a blow-job. I already know what that looks like, thanks.

Thirdly, I can’t stop thinking about what the “actors” are going through. Are they having fun? Do those girls really enjoy spending hours and hours with a guy old enough to be their father? What about their dreams? Is this really what they saw themselves doing?

…Okay, so maybe I’m over-thinking it. But just because something is arousing doesn’t mean my head shuts off!

And why is everyone completely shaven? Why do all the girls have hand-drawn eyebrows? Why is every porn director ugly? Are the male “actors” required to slick their hair back with inches of grease?

What do you think, lovelies? Are there any other girls out there who don’t dig porn? Why don’t you like it?

And if you do like it, are you watching something I’m not?
