What’s something useful you've actually learned from porn?

Yes, I know porn is bad for everyone and no one should be watching that thing. Yet people will still do so, even 10-12 y/o will still watch that content. So, those who have watched porn before, did you ever learn anything from it?

  • I've actually learnt quite a lot from porn. I very much prefer to watch amateur porn and homemade videos that were filmed by the average person on the street and not a paid actor/actress. While porn (professional ones) often portray an inaccurate picture of real-life sex, one can actualIy learn a thing or two from porn. I rarely, if ever, watch porn featuring professional actors. I like to watch "how-to" educational videos on porn sites that do cover certain tips and tricks on how to finger a girl, last longer in bed with different positions as well as how to eat a girl out. While I often take what I see with a pinch of salt, I do take mental notes of certain tips that I often later research about and try out on my partner. I lost my virginity a number of years ago, yet the first time I ate a girl out and fingered her, she managed to orgasm multiple times. She refused to believe that it was actually my first time, yet most of what I did/knew was what I picked up from these so called pornographic educational videos. I don't wish to sound like a pervert but I do enjoy watching videos of female masturbation and orgasms (amateur) to pick up tips, tricks and visual cues. I personally believe that a girl knows her body best and watching these videos can be very eye-opening and educational. Hope this helps.

  • Actually, I have learned a lot about sex from porn. I mean "NOT" as far as to how to make "Love" properly, porn is not about love making. That a completely different skill set you that you got to master and work out with you partner, because every woman is different in that regard. You just got to figure it out with her, but the better you are at it in general the easier it to figure out fast with different women.

    I have learned how to get downright nasty with a woman, through porn. The positions, what it looks like to be with a woman that likes to get down, the things she is willing to experience... things to try I mean how to really cut loose and get into a heated sex session, and just use that leverage to really get into it, and just how to rail away on something!!!

    I mean you would be surprised how many women really love that shit, but not know it until they meet a guy that can seriously rock like a porn star.

    But guys, seriously... there is right way and wrong way to work up to stuff like that... you just don't jump into the next level sex stuff until you have laid the groundwork first. But once you have made her cum once or twice with just your hand, or tongue... yeah you go straight porn star on that shit... trust me its fucking amazing. Woman love that shit... and if they don't then you know she ain't all that she thinks she is, move on.

  • I learned how sex actually worked. When I got "the talk" at 10 years old because I asked where babies came from, I didn't understand the terminology of "sperm" or "uterus" or what it even looked like to have a "penis" go into a "vagina" because I grew up super sheltered. Porn taught me what that actually looks like.

    • Same

  • That much of it is fake, porn would have you think that 90% of people are having sex with a step father, sister, brother, cousin, etc...

    Not just that, but a lot of other stuff is fake with it too... and that its boring, I learned that much.

    • For real, they need to stop with that shit. The ones that irk me the most are those "First Time" ones. Like it's so obvious it's not their first time, especially if they've had multiple first times. That's why I like Lustery. Though even with that one, some of them are so over the top that it's clear they were pre-scripted/exaggerated for the camera. The moment you bring a camera into the mix, nothing is 100% genuine.

  • That i'm not a horny mortal. Also people like this kind of porn? Well I'll be damned...

  • I learned from watching other people watching it in public that it fucks them up. Of all things, watching porn is our priority..

  • Sex is part of us and normal.

    to stay away from porn.

  • I learned that every porn actor must have to have at least a 9" penis to shoot the video!

    • What about you?

  • Of course. What feels good to the opposing gender. It’s hard to get an idea of something ahead of time if you yourself are not that gender.

    • That’s my reason too. Trying to learn how to be a better lover..😉

    • Smart man.

    • I wouldn’t say old-school types are very educational though. lol Let me specify more modern and genuine forms.

  • Reproductive system... and how to do it.. 😂

  • I don't know if it counts, but watching "female-friendly" porn - which is a more realistic subgenre that focuses more on the woman's pleasure than the guy spunking everywhere and senselessly banging his co-star - helped me learn to work on different erogenous zones that are not the breasts and the vagina.

    That's something that my partners have always appreciated.

  • It did help me figure out the type of women I'm most attracted to in general.

  • The most useful thing I learned from it was that it is all fake. And I do get turned on by the good actors but it is all staged and it is all programmed and it is usualt doctored up a ton after the actors are done doing there thing so that they look more impressive or so that the timing is actually sexy. It is all together useless besides for a quick fix. And even then there are some better ways if you want.

  • That there are many people out there who just don't know how to act.

    • Dang Cassie ! 😂 i like that answer

  • This is a thought provoking question. I learned that everyone is different -- in looks and in likes.

  • to always check bathtubs first, for sharks...

  • Lots! Different positions, penetrations and partner possibilities. Most of my early sex education came from porn before i had much experience.

  • To never have sex like people in porn.

  • I never watched porn

    • That's cap & I'm not hearing that

    • @Fuentes naw it feels like it would be creepy, the thought of watching 2 people i don't know doing the do.

    • 🧢🧢🧢🧢🧢🧢 u can't tell me you never once seen it in your whole life?

  • What not to do haha

  • That the amateur stuff is 10 times better.

    • 100% agree!

    • @bananathunder If you pay me enough money, I will wash your car, vacuum your house and cook your dinner. Take away the money, and I'm staying home and watching Netflix. That's what I think about pro porn. Take the money away, and those ladies are going to stay home and watch scary movies on Netflix. To me that's the gist of it all. Amateurs do it because they like it. That changes everything. Pros are just going to the job they'd rather not be at. Having said that, there is a lot of amateur stuff that's crap. lol Why is the news on full blast? Why is the radio on full blast? Why is the dog watching? I've created vacation videos, and it takes time to do good editing, but it's worth it. Video editing software isn't even expensive. I don't know why people can't figure that out. I watched an amateur video that was beyond stupid. I couldn't stop laughing. Wifey is having sex with a guy, and she turns to her husband and says: "Let me know when you want me to moan." How in the fuck did he not figure out how to edit that out? Even a free Android app could have fixed that. lol

    • Yeah that’s true

  • First I don't think there is much wrong with porn. With most every movie there is some love interest in it - sex in high boots. And a lot of ads have sexual content. So sex is all around us and we seem to like it whether it is implied or explicit. Then there is erotica. Porn is mostly distinguished by being explicit visually.

    Do we learn anything from porn? Not much I would say as we all know the penis goes into the vagina then thrusting happens Or penis goes into the anus and thrusting happens. Or penis goes into mouth and thrusting happens (mostly from the girl in this case).

    What we can learn more about ourselves is what excites us. Having sex with a girl in a tutu is definitely on my bucket list. I do want a girl to pay a lot more attention to my penis than they normally do. I would like a girl to flick my penis around in a fun way. I would like a girl to do cosplay for me.

    So I think whats to be learnt is mostly what would excite us.
