    I was with an experienced guy and was surprised to find he felt embarrassed talking about the types of porn he watches. Is this something a lot of men feel wrongly ashamed of and why?

    Because society tells us that watching porn is shameful and that we should be embarrassed about it.

    Sometimes we have kinks we're insecure about how our partner would react to them

    I'm not embarrassed to talk to my partner about it. I can understand why some people would be, especially the apprehension at first. It's great when you get to the point you watch it together, and better when she tells you what she has been watching.

    Today I watched a bunch of porn where hot girls get fucked by machines. It was really hot.


    I guess not.

    Today I watched a home video of a guy sucking himself off, AND I got off to it. I have to admit, it was really fucking hot.

    Obviously, much like SWGirl, I don't have an issue talking about these things. :)

    I like to call it erotica rather than porn. Erotica sounds cleaner and less guilty (not sure if there is an actual difference).

    Anyway, I'm not too ashamed of talking about it when the topic steers in that direction.

    I always thought of erotica as the artful presentation of sexual subjects. Porn would be the more in-your-face instant gratification type production for those who don't care to exercise their imaginations or take the time to appreciate a thing of beauty.

    I think many guys can be embarrassed because they feel it will be a turnoff to women.

    i used to brag about my porn collection. I have over 30gb of videos. I love porn. I told my parents when I was 14 that I wanted to be a director for pornography. They didnt like the idea :/

    I have no problem with telling someone about what kind of porn I watch if I really know them well and we share a deep emotional bond. But to women that I don't know too well, I would be uncomfortable although I don't know how we'd ever get on that subject anyway.

    It's just that some guys have fetishes or turn ons that they're afraid people won't think are normal.

    Softcore Erotica tends to turn me on a lot more than the hardcore porn does. As a figure model, I think the human body is artful and beautiful.

    Oral sex and kissing are huge turn-on's for me. I don't really enjoy watching masturbation, intercourse, and object insertions very much.

    I'll tell people if they ask but I don't make it an opening statement when I'm in a conversation with people. But any of the ladies on here can open that conversation with me anytime.

    Depends on who I'm talking to, but generally, no.

    A lot of lads watch the kind of porn girls would hate so that's probably why he's bothered.

    It seem the majority of women don't like to hear about porn, so I don't talk about it. More than one woman I've met would be "jealous" of the porn, and/or would wonder why I want to look at pictures instead of them. If I were NOT generally a nice person and generally attractive, then women would probably think I was a freak for looking at porn.
