Yup, I'm quite exhibitionist. I did it simply because I enjoy doing it.

Quote:I'm not afraid of aging or death. I'm in excellent health and very good shape but the porn industry seems to think that the only people who have sex are in their 20's and narrow that down even further to only people who have bodies like an Adonis or Aphrodite. Walk down any street in America and you'll see people of all shapes and sizes and ages. These people are probably having sex but one hardly ever sees that represented in porn videos or if it is it's classified as kinda of an odd niche market. I reality the Adonis and Aphrodite is the minority.

OK I can see how it might seem like that, but I think I'd probably question wether these ideas about the porn industry are really true. Eg certainly "mature" porn is classified as a niche market, but are there any facts to support the claim that the porn industry itself classifies it as an "odd" niche?

I think "odd" sounds like a value judgement and I doubt the porn industry do value judgements, I think in general they are low ethic opportunists who will simply create whatever sells and makes money. Against that, I would say that commercial porn probably provides a reasonable reflection of "lowest common denominator" human tastes in such things since the porn studios are simply supplying what people demand.

It's certainly true that there are people of all sizes and ages having sex, but I would also say that popular porn stereotypes offer evidence that all other things being equal, the majority might prefer sex with an Adonis or Aphrodite.

Remember that sexual attraction is largely concerned with selecting a mate with beneficial genetics, e.g. physical attributes we typically class as "hot" are in fact attributes that from our perspective suggest a good capacity for physical survival. So from that perspective, a disproportional sexual attractivity of certain stereotypes is perhaps to be expected?

Mummy & Daddy listening to their children's ambitions when they grow up:

jonny: "I want to be an astronaut - to see the stars and discover new planets"
Jimmy "I want to be a doctor - to help the wounded and sick"
Jenny "I want to be a lawyer - to win cases and bring justice to criminals"
Jilly "I want to be a porn star - to fuck on TV and make people wank"

Mummy & Daddy: "Wow Jilly we will all be proud of you. "
Daddy:"I can now wank without Mummies help - just switch on TV".

A wise man proportions his belief to the evidence -

RE: The possible negative effects of Pornography
when I was a kid I decided that since my right arm is bigger and stronger than my left arm that I would only masturbate with my left hand. now if I try to masturbate with my right hand it's totally out of coordination , I cant do it as fast or I lose my grip on my penis, and it just really isn't that enjoyable and it's really hard to give myself an orgasm with my right hand. but that's the hand I write with but dont wank with.

Yeah, it really does boil down to whatever sells. But isn't the porn industry having problems these days? Now anyone can make a porn film and put on an internet porn site. I'd think that would cut into any profits from the more "legit" porn producers. If there is such a thing anymore.

I believe internet porn has made Playboy and Hustler magazine sales drop. My husband still gets Playboy but he's fifty and grew up with soft porn magazines however in the future I imagine that young men will not even know what Playboy was! That's a funny thought.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: The possible negative effects of Pornography
playboy has much better looking women than hustler. I think some of the hustler women are trashy compared to the Playboy women but I'm sure they have more skills.

Yup I think the industry is in terminal decline. The main problem is the amount of porn that's now freely available on the Internet, kind of reduces the incentive to pay for the stuff. Add to that the fact that as you say, the Internet makes it much easier for anyone to enter the commercial porn market so there's more competition.

And then there's the amateur porn thing. Quite a lot of people prefer it to commercial porn because it's not acted, the people in it are enjoying the sex and enjoying being filmed.
