Asexuals who watch porn: What kind?

Recommended Posts

timidcat

I usually view hentai and occasionally a few short videos with computer animation. I've never attempted to watch a live action porn video because it just disgusts me. It's weird because I never get aroused when I view this stuff.

Most of the porn I watch is tribbing aka scissoring. Honestly it doesn't turn me on that much? Their bodies look so.....fake.....and it kind of detracts from the hotness of it. But, I don't like anything involving dicks (penises weird me out a bit TBH), and cunnilingus isn't exciting enough. So scissoring it is. I sometimes have gotten off reading porn/descriptions of masturbation techniques but sometimes the writing style is too...overzealous, maybe? for me to enjoy it.

What actually turns me on (at least in my head) is making out, fondling chest/ass, kissing pretty much anywhere (especially boobs). But I can't seem to find any good videos that have that in it.

First of all, let me just get this out of the way. I don't watch visual porn. No matter what quality (amateur or professional) - and I haven't watched much mind - the sounds made are completely ridiculous. I mean all that moaning an groaning is just unreal. Possibly TMI, but I am a completely silent masturbator - rare though that it happens. Plus, don't get me started on the words/phrases used... Complete distraction for me. I remember giggling at the absurdity of it all. So rather than getting aroused by visual porn, I find it hilarious.

I'm sure the visuals are just as fake - if not worse - though I have no personal experience (inoperable ocular inputs). Yes, there's such a thing as porn with Audio Description, but the audio narration makes me giggle even more... It's not what was said - it was the tone of voice and terminology used. I mean even if I were sexual, it would still be a complete turnoff, and an article I previously read agrees with me. There's also an online adult comedy radio show's

. As far as audio roleplaying goes, it takes all the imagination out of things.

Sex scenes in general media: While I don't consider them to be disgusting or abhorrent, I do find them to be boring for the most part. Whether or not I skip past said scenes depends on my laziness level and/or if it is relevant to the plot. Usually I just sit through them just because they'll be over soon enough anyway, and the energy spent would outweigh the gain. Sample thoughts that may occur during such scenes: 'is that even physically possible?' 'how unrealistic is that!' 'how on earth did you contort your body like that?' 'isn't that radio distracting?' 'can you please have a coherent conversation?' 'Would you cut to another scene already?' 'Hmm, would the scene be long enough for a bathroom break?' 'What should I eat for dinner?'Kissing and making out? I could never understand the arousal value in that, even though I know about the erogenous zones and all that, so it's just boring. I also start thinking of the amount of germs being transferred, so it really isn't an enjoyable experience.

To finally get to the OP's questions though, what kind of porn would I read? Well, I like stories with a lot of introspection, so my taste in porn does reflect that also - porn focusing only on the physical is just boring. There needs to be written thoughts of what you're feeling - physically and emotionally - and as a bonus, questioning why you're feeling the way you do. The actual sex act is secondary - it's more of an emotional and mental exploration than anything else.

Most of the time though, I don't go looking for porn - sex and romance just happens to be part of the story. When I went looking for porn though, I liked erotic literature in which the frame of reference is foreign or alien to me - different body parts, psychic abilities, brain chemistry, outlook, state of mind, etc - the less human and preconceived notions the better. I have a better time relating to such stories - a complete contradiction I know. Yes, you're right: Having sex is already alien and foreign to me anyway, but a sex act between two baseline humans really does nothing for me. I initially started looking for erotic literature to see if I would become aroused by such things. The answer was an unequivocal no for normal sex, so then I started looking at different categories such as sci-fi and fantasy. Eventually though, I guess I started to condition my body to become aroused but such material, as to make masturbation a little less of a chore, but that's another topic altogether. Regardless, plot is always key. Porn without plot is really boring unless there's some really good introspection going on.

Reading sex acts from the point of view of the receiver is more enjoyable - gender doesn't matter. As I tend to immerse myself into the characters I read, it's more preferable to not be in the POV of the one initiating things, probably because I can't imagine myself taking part in sexual interaction in real life. Particular styles of writing lends itself better to such immersive experiences, but they usually have one thing in common - they are relatively well-written.

Things I dislike/can't read (in no particular order): Humiliation, masochism, vanilla sex between humans, body disfiguration.

Hope that answers your questions,
Fyren

I watch lesbian, straight, orgies, and threesome involving FMF. Over time, I see that male bodies and female bodies are starting to look the same.

Oh, and they should really get more real-looking females and males too.

I indulge in my fetishes. I doubt I could sit through a porn video more than two minutes long, so those ones with "storylines" are just stupid to me. Not to mention the bad acting. Pictures aren't bad either. I'm not very discriminating about porn, unless it contains something I'm averse to, and even then, I haven't ever been disgusted by anything. Humans are fine, furries are fine (though I don't really like human/furry interaction), pony porn, etc.. Whatever works, you know?

I usually go for anything vocal, though I have been known to watch hentai simply because it's not real and the story lines are just train wrecks. It makes me feel as though I'm not involved in any way while still getting what I need from it. I guess I don't feel the bizarre pressure that comes from feeling invested in the story if it's a cartoon and wildly unlikely to happen in the real world.

I usually just read smut. I have a specific type but I'm too embarrassed to say. Usually BDSM centered though. Porn is just too hilarious and makes me cringe. The bad acting, lighting, ugly and verging on scary looking porn stars get me from horny to repulsed real fast. I also read a lot of erotic literature or science fiction with a lot of sex. I need a backstory and actual content or I get bored easily. I also like artsy porn photography which I can used my imagination to create a story around it.

Ive read many a times that many asexuals masturbate and even watch porn.

What kind do they like?

Its said that a lot can be revealed about someones psyche by their porn tastes? What kind do you watch? What kind you dont mind or were seriously freaked out by?

 

I read and write pervy/romantic fanfics... Does this count at all?

(TMI warning for some graphic details)

My ‘interests’ have varied over the years. My DVDs would be of the Playboy type with a solo model or pairs ‘playing around’, no real sexual contact. For the longest time I enjoyed the ‘submission’ in Penthouse magazine’s Forum column. ‘Dear Penthouse, you won’t believe what happened to me on an appliance service call...’ I think most people figured the letters were the products of people with vivid imaginations. What ever they were the were a good source of stimulation.

 

The only fiction I purchased as an aid was Alan Moore’s The Lost Girls. It may be difficult to find but is entertaining for those of straight and lesbian sex.

 

In more recent years, I’ve been more interested in still images in a slide show on my laptop. Solo girls and pairs, Asian models. For sexual activity photos of couples and threesomes involved.

 

I’ll check out some porn videos on the 'net, both straight and gay, but more out of curiosity factor than for masturbating. Not sure but I’ve noticed that ‘facials’ don’t seem to be that prevalent in gay porn, mind you I haven’t specifically looked for oral sex, more on the anal side. Is this assumption true?

Have any of you had to change the subject matter over the years to achieve arousal? Did you start out with soft core/conventional porn and progress to more hard core or ‘dark’ content over the years? That almost sounds like some people that say that pornographic magazines are a ‘gateway drug’.

I like lesbian, bi & homosexual porn the most.  I generally like dark skinned black chicks & meaty latino bears; I doubt they'd ever mix in porn but that would be a sight for my eyes.  It still takes a lot to turn me on though.  Visuals to get me started, until I trance myself into a fantasy.

 

I get more thrills from my fantasy files; I'm working on one right now.  Titled "Marshmallows Dipped In Vodka"; it's about my fantasy man Scodeo Charles, the tattooed crimson haired, red eyed motor cycle gang; protector of LGBTQIA.  This is the third fantasy about him, the first was titled "Fire & Ice Cream" & the second was titled "the Ability To Do Things".  This one involves his asexual gang member & my metaphorical best friend in imaginary form.  It's hilarious!  But the end revolves around all five of us in a room; but not everyone is involved with everyone.

 

I don't think about sex a lot but I was on cam earlier today, the x rated way.  I'm usually on cam drawing & stuff but once my sleeping pill hit me & while I was working on the latest fantasy file, I was in a good mood.  Male cams are also a porn outlet for me but it's hard finding reasonably shaped bears.  Resonably.

Depends on my mood. If I'm just looking for something to relax with as quickly as possible, then I watch something that goes straight to the point, usually either straight or lesbian. No "setting the mood", no plot, preferably no even undressing or kissing or anything, just the act itself. However, sometimes I feel like watching something romantic and less "porny", more like watching a real couple. The only things I've really found satisfactory for those times are gay massage videos or some kind of kama sutra/tantra how-to -stuff, never anything involving women! I watch almost all porn muted, because however good or bad it otherwise is the sounds are always so fake they turn me off instantly. Japanese screaming can sometimes be an exception but pretty much anything else I'll mute 100% of the time.

I've always preferred m/m or solo. I think the m/m helps me satisfy my guy curiosity as a bigender person. Can't tolerate certain themes or visual stuff, though, and it would be hard to list all squicks. I like erotica fiction, but always prefer it when it's romance/strong friendship based. I get off on intensity of emotional connection more than the sex. Could happily read romance with kisses and cuddles and not long for anything more.

Yaoi. I don’t watch/read the vanilla ones though, they bore me.
However I don’t get any significant arousal from what I see and don’t masturbate. In fact I never masturbated in my entire life. I just happen to like to watch/read that stuff.

Yeah, same here. I only read yaoi, but I can't handle like the real version of it- if its drawn and or animated then I'm okay with it but actual people who are physically doing it is a no no for me.

I can handle the "real version" just fine. I’m usually not interested enough in it to seek it out to watch it though. I’m an otaku in general so I’m probably naturally drawn to anime and manga.

Reading.. lots of reading very harsh fetish porn. Literotica.com <3 lol. I just skip over the sex parts because it bores me unless there is plenty of detail about what they are saying or if it's really rough. Also I don't masturbate to porn. I don't really understand masturbation.

Simple vaginal sex. I tend to like amateur stuff because they don't pile on a lot of stuff. Not rough stuff, no oral, no anal. And just enough of it to get myself turned on to masturbate (which I mainly do as stress relief)

Okay... let's hope that the wrong people don't see this XD

 

I masturbate using my thoughts. That is all. No hands or anything. It is the easiest way. It usually takes me about 30 minutes to an hour to reach the end. Nowadays, I usually only do it a couple of times a month. I used to (about 3 years ago) do it almost every other day, sometimes up to 3 times on the days that I did it. If done more than once, I usually end up sore later. That is why I don't do it often anymore. That and because I don't have much of an urge to. Sometimes I don't use any arousing media to masturbate. I can say that the end result is much better when I don't. 

 

As for the porn... I like all types (isn't that a little surprising ;)), including erotic fiction (Literotica, Adult-FanFiction, M-rated stories on FanFiction and FictionPress, some DeviantArt posts, and some Tumblr posts). I've masturbated to things that many others don't find arousing or sexual at all.

PIV. I like close ups. That's all that really does anything for me. Oral, anal, hentai, gay/lesbian. None of that does anything. 

 

Also, I know this is really really really bad, but I like reading taboo FanFiction. Incest, bestiality, pedophilia, sexual slavery, rape, abductions, etc. I'll never watch it, though. That's where I draw the line. I read normal fanfics too, but the taboo ones are the ones that usually turn me on. :ph34r::ph34r::ph34r: I'm going to hell. Or jail. Probably both.

There are bodies that look very nice.  I even would call it lust... well, except for the fact that it doesn't and wont' ever lead to sex.  But most porn inevitably focuses on genitals and then eww ruined it.

I've tried, but I can't watch erotic stuff if there's a woman there. I've seen too much of women not seeming to enjoy themselves at all, and it all feels overexaggerated.

For me it's not about the act but more the situation. I have a fascination about being submissive so I'll usually watch stuff where the girl is helpless, mostly non con hentai sometimes ava. I like girls' voices in those.

 

I also like stuff where they do their business half dressed or with some bit of clothes on rather than fully naked.

That's a really good point.  I have no interest in genital interaction at all, so topless is fine if anything.

Scared

To be perfectly honest, for the longest time i watched whatever showed up in the "hardcore" section of pornhub, looking back i think it was because that seemed "normal" from what my friends talked about, that or compilation videos to "just get it over with" i don't particularly, like touching myself, but sometimes i NEED to.... That being said my actual favorite type of porn would have to be hentai. Usually stuff based on shows/manga that I've read, with characters that i know. It's like i want them to be together... so it just clicks?
