I guess it's considered typical for a guy to be into porn and a suppose a lesser percent of females being into it as well. My question is what purpose does it really serve? It's really just selling an illusion with people swapping more bodily fluids than I care to imagine. It seems to be getting a bit more popular in the mainstream, too. So what do people really get from it?

Gee... maybe the chance to find the G spot? Or how about the big O?

Pornography is exciting for most people. I would say its purpose is to arouse and even a way to release sexual tension. Humans are sexual beings...otherwise we wouldn't be turned on by watching other people have sex.

In that respect it's like regular movies. When you go to a movie theater and watch a good movie, you don't really care that they're "just acting" and you get into it. Same with porn. Also like regular films, if you're watching a particularly bad porno film, it's painfully bad!

And yeah, there are definitely risks, but the actors/actresses are evidently more than willing to risk them.

What is the purpose of porn?

What is the sound of one hand stroking?

Hint: That depends on whether or not lotion is in use.

Porn doesn't much interest me, or repel me. But I'm given to understand that men are highly visual mammals, and looking at people doing mammalian things excites them. Women, more imaginative and literate, would as soon read about it. Thus, the remarkable success of the ridiculous "Fifty Shades" stuff.

Don't forget that they are getting paid for doing something that feels good. With no math involved.

They have to be prepared to be rogered by a variety of 'actors'. Hopefully the paycheck is worth it.

Rogered?

That reminds me...does '50 Shades' have pictures?

If not, publisher, if you are listening, put in some pics and watch those sales double!

What the hell kind of porn do you watch? Or are you simply using an extreme example because you have a problem with porn in general?

1. Masterbation.

2. For you and your partner to enjoy together and get in the mood.

Posted on Sep 13, 2012 7:16:03 PM PDT
The purpose, hmmm. Let's see. To make billions of dollars? To stimulate the sex drive? To enhance the lovemaking experience? To get your rocks off once in a while in a release of tension? To catch up on technique in case it's changed? To employ really mediocre actors in roles such as cleaning lady, strict teacher, pizza delivery boy, burly boss, and naughty cheerleader?

Not for nothing but it's been popular for decades, not just lately. But in this age of computers and the web, it's probably reached a peak.

Porn began shortly after the camera was invented. It started as nothing more than horny couples pumping(no pun intended) excitement into their relationship. A smart business man realized that people like to watch said endeavors and made a business out of it. Porn's purpose is to incite excitement and arousal in the viewer, nothing more, nothing less.

Q: What's the purpose of this thread?

A: To pique interest and see how many replies he can get. Nothing more, nothing less.

Oops. I just fueled his fire. Get this sheet off of our discussion boards.

They used to be exciting to watch , The Stag Film with No Sound because of the Prudish Attitudes of America. Now you watch them today and laugh. Overweight out of shape women with bushy pubic hair and skinny and sickly old men. Porn in the 70's was cheesy and had lots of production values. Porn in the 80's was basically stationary or handheld low resolution video tape. Today's porn is Bald Men with tattoos and body piercings and chicks with tattoos, shaved cleavers that are pierced or with round metal pieces attached.
