Ha! It's funny because that's pretty much the world's view on male masturbation, every guy in the world does it apparently. And if you don't to them your just lying. I do, but still that's a pretty shitty view to have especially when you know there are guys out there who don't.

I do sometimes, it just kind of aids in the process. I don't get physical symptoms per say, but I do notice that it just seems to release tension or kind of de-hyperizes my thoughts.. Kind of like there's a bit to much built up energy, or to much of... that certain kind. So it can be a relief.

porn actually taught me what sex looks like.. now I know it's not a realistic depiction, and I'm pretty sure I knew how the parts worked all along but it was still something beyond my comprehension. So I saw like 2 minutes, had my moment of education and then realised how fucking boring that stuff is.

PS it's still beyond me how some porn videos are like an hour long. Honestly whether you're ace or not you'd think you could do your business before then, cos at least for me it's the equivalent of listening to the same two notes of a song on repeat for an hour straight

Not that I hate on the stuff or anybody right, I mean whatever floats your boat eh. Just not my style. And don't think I've had anyone judge me or start awkward comments cos of it

On occasion, but it's fairly rare for me.

And yes. An hour is way long. I just like to get in and get out. As it were...

I actually completely agree, I don't see how anyone would want to go that long. Especially since "going solo" is more of a get it done kind of deal.

I watched porn for the first time at 26 out of curiosity. Also watched a bit with my partner after that, but it did nothing to me so I don't watch porn now.

No, I don't watch it. I've looked it up in the past either out of curiosity or for the express purpose of laughing at its ridiculousness, but I haven't done either in ages. My curiosity has been sated, and there's not much to laugh at anymore, as it's all more or less the same thing. I have zero inclination to want to watch it for the sake of becoming aroused.

i was thinking about adding more options, but thought rather at present in life, do people watch on a regular basis, whether its just watching or otherwise!

I want to put sometimes but I always watch it while 'relieving' myself. I don't watch it for any reason beside that. I don't really have a problem with porn but there is stuff I like and don't like.

I can't differentiate between yes and sometimes. I answered sometimes because I'm not constantly glued to my computer 24/7.

I have in the past, but it's not that appealing to me. It doesn't keep my interest. Admittedly, sometimes it's a bit arousing, if I'm already...you know...but not usually. It always ends up being a waste of my time.

No. Not any more.

Used to, very occasionally, more as a curiosity than anything. I generally find "standard" commercial hetero porn very boring though (and usually kinda misogynistic and offensive).

I've never understood what the point is with the whole "facial" thing. Why does just about every hetero porno end like that? It's just weird to me.

When I discovered amateur porn, I actually appreciated it more at one point. But again, as a passing curiosity more than something I really got into. Porn seems to set me off almost entirely in a kind of "vicarious relating" context. In a similar way, overhearing sex tends to do that to me too. Hence why amateur genuine porn works much better than fake, highly scripted commercial porn. If I'm witnessing what seems to be a genuine act people are genuinely enjoying, that sometimes flips a switch for me. Regardless of how the people look or even what gender they are.

I think it's more of a "well, where else are you gonna put it?" Instead of an eww that's just gross why would you do that. Idk, some people end it, or finish inside of a condom, which seems more appropriate to me rather than on someone, especially their face.

I don't. Like someone said before me: I just don't see the appeal. (Also, even if I could see an appeal to it, being caught would be ridiculously easy in this house. So I wouldn't want to risk it anyway-saving myself from embarrassment.)

I don't watch it myself. I have in the past, but I felt either apathetic or even a little repulsed.

imagine that conversation with a male...

'you don't?'

'no?'

'oh, you're gay.'

'no'

'you don't have man parts?'

I have had this conversation, it's horrible. I would stress that not all heterosexual males watch porn; I tend not be very good friends with those that do, because of conversations like this.

But yeah, people can make you feel really inadequate when they want to.

Yes I do, but some years I have passed w/o it.

After thinking a lot of it, as my sexual organs apparently works normally and get aroused within the expected frecuency, I have decided to regullarly masturbate.

Until we can overcome our physical limitations, we have to take care of all our organs, because they are connected. I have envy of the people that don't never have the need to masturbate, but be carefull that might not be a medical problem, first discard it, seriously.

And then, if the need is there, and I don't want to have sex, the only way I see is to regularly masturbate, like 1/2 a week, I used in the past to try to past months w/o doing it, but now I see as a way of repession so I don't do.

Just to say, first I think: I need to masturbate, or I have an erection, and then I watch the porn.

The porn itself alone does not usually arouse me if I don't have first the idea in the mind. I find the sexual organs really not nice, so sometimes I have to stop watching it. The parts that help my more are those with more movement, it helps the somewhat "heavy" process of having to masturbate, but I see it like doing exercise, it personally helps my health. Would be a problem if I masturbated because I can't satisfy with other people my sexual desire, but as long as I decide is a personal issue of health, I don't have conflict.

What trully causes me a conflict is that I hate the industry of porn and their desire to extend their roots to every single branch of Human activity, and also saddens me that the most powerful and amazing tool we have ever built, the Internet, is that much used just for Porn, really a lot of amount of human time lost making those films, and watching them.

I don't watch actual porn (repels me), but I look up erotic drawings from time to time.

No, is the domination part of sex, like saying: "you are my "bitchy", take me into you. Really, man thinks so of woman that do it, but at the same time want their sexual partners to do that to them.

Porn is bizarre to me. I have seen pictures out of curiosity but my reactions tell me I would definitely not want to see anything more. I actually have "porn" and "nsfw" blocked from showing up on my Tumblr dashboard because it startles me. I also don't trust porn sites - I have the worst luck with viruses.

Same. I've seen some erotic fanart I like but it's not really porn and I like it for the characters, intimacy, and art style.

No i definitely understand that, and it's one of the biggest reasons sex has been misunderstood for me. I always saw it as a domination act. That's not to say that EVERY time one has sex that it's so one-sided, but for the most part yeah i get where you're coming from on that note.

Eh. No. Not really. I went to the Erotic Heritage Museum here in Las Vegas for a class assignment once, and that was the first time I had ever seen porn of any sort. They have a room on the upper floor with historical porn flicks playing, and part of the assignment was to go in there and look at the changes over time. Fun stuff. :blink:

There was one section of the museum that played home movies of people who seemed to genuinely care for one another ... It was a weird experience watching that. All the other porn flicks and photos were very lewd and in-your-face, but seeing these very intimate, private home vids that didn't even have a lot of sex in them is what actually made me blush and look away.

After that assignment, I glanced at youporn once or twice while I was still in that class. I haven't watched any since then.
