    Girls and Guys, why would you ever buy porn when there is so much free stuff online?

    I don't buy it. Back in the College days I bought Penthouse, Playboy and at least a couple of Hustlers. That was a long time ago, but between then and the beginning of the Internet I didn't even buy those. I guess the very occasional sex I got was enough to hold me. Now that everything except Hi def is free, I look at it on the Tube sites. But my favorites remain the still images of pretty women in alluring poses on the thumbnail posts. In fact that's the name of my favorite one.

    I have considered paying for the HD videos, but I'm too careful of getting my bank account attacked, so I don't. And it's more money than I consider it to be worth. I suppose if they worked through PayPal and it was only a few dollars for a year of HD, I might buy one subscription, but there aren't very many videos that feature the natural sex that I like to see.

    I went into a sex shop with my best friend, the DVD's were ridiculous, 50 bucks for Behind THe Green Door, 50 or 60 bucks for a regular DVD, 20 bucks used, It was fun to go in and see this WALL of porn covers, but i can't fathom paying for it.

    i never have and never will. i enjoy porn but not enough to actually spend money on a dvd of it. plus, ive found that when i watch free streaming movies online, there's a lot that i dont like (in the same movie), so id rather just watch the sequences i do instead of paying for stuff that i dont really want to watch.

    I bought a couple of VHS tapes on Ebay. They were OK (that was before so much was available free on-line). I would not do it again.

    Me too, I use the fast forward button a lot. In a 30 minute video, I usually watch about ten minutes of it

    These days, I do not see a reason to. I recently read several articles on how the porn industry is being impacted by the U.S. economy and all the free porn available, and especially the noticeable interest in the desire for non-professional amateur porn. Thy are trying to figure out what advancements they can come up with that people are willing to pay for (e.g. "3D" porn, more direct virtual/interactive porn similar to ride simulators, etc.). Much like the newspaper industry, they need to come up with a much different business model. It will be interesting to see if they can.

    For the types of things we sometimes watch, there is no need to pay. And since we mainly watch ourselves instead of porn, that is always free. :)
