    I have read threads and posts where posters discuss that porn is unrealistic because it is acted, scripted and choreographed and it gives an unrealistic expectation when it comes to real sex.

    I want to discuss another unrealistic aspect of porn - the camera angles - whereby you can see the entirety of the participants. During real sex, you cannot see the entire body of your partner.

    For example in real sex, if you are behind your partner, you cannot see her face or her breasts. In porn you can, because the camera can record a frontal view. The camera can suddenly change to a side view, back view, close view, etc.

    Perhaps this may be a cause of PIED during real sex. The man wants to see T & A at the same time. Yet it is impossible to see the front and the back of your partner at the same time.

    Thanks for posting this.
    We have got to get educated on how fake and artificial porn really is. It's almost like porn addicts are lab rats and the porn producers are evil scientists trying to administer inputs to see what causes the most intense reactions. They definitely don't care about the rats, just the bottom line.

    So true! Also in real sex you dont usually see the pussy and penetration or any kind of close up that isn't your partner's face. And if the lights are out you may only see shadows. You gotta learn to feel the girl instead of watching.

    Mirrors and lights!
    I've mentioned a mirror but my boyfriend said he'd feel like he'd see his gut and think omg I need to work out. Haha

    This blew my mind and makes so much sense in fact now that I think about it I constantly think about my girls butt or her breast or try to think about how her whole body looks when we have sex cause I'm so used to that from p. Thus makes so much sense it's freaky I have been doing this so long without even thinking about it

    I do that too. Makes me wonder what would sex be like if I hadn't ever watched porn.

    Veritech is pretty smart with the points he brings let me tell ya.

    A long time ago, the only way to see more was to rent a motel room with mirrors on the ceiling. Some peeps started to install them in their bedroom.
    Now with P, there is so many angles you just can't see other wize, unless you got a giraffe neck!

    Another way to express this, is to say that all porn addicts are voyeurs. We get off watching other people undressing, posing naked and having sex with each other. :rolleyes:

    Yes, voyeur in the computer room. But I wouldn't never be able to have my wife having sex with another man...but I watched a lot of "husband watches/husband films...".

    I saw a discovery show about swingers and polygamy, and the individuals seemed all right with it. In such cases trust is an important factor, I guess.

    Wow.

    I'm happy to have started such an interesting conversation.

    I sort of had a gut feeling that someone would mention "mirrors". I did not anticipate that such a post would come so soon.

    But seriously...

    About 8 months ago, I decided that I had had enough of porn. I tried researching the issue, but I would alway get stuck and relapse. Why do I desire porn when I have an active and satisfying sex life?

    When I first started with the porn I was a virgin and had issues with my self-confidence with women. Since overcoming those issues and having an active sex life, the porn continued. Common sense and logic would say that after having good sex, the porn would vanish.

    After finding this forum, I started learning how my mind is working, how others are having similar struggles and the chaser effect. I am on my longest streek of no porn ever.

    But the ultimate question is how is porn different from real sex? What does it have over real sex that makes it so enticing?

    Then it hit me. Our line of vision as we view our partners is different in real life than in porn. We do not see the entire female body as we do in porn.

    So let's turn this premise on its face. With respect to what we see real sex vs. porn, what is missing in porn that can only be achieved with real sex?

    For example eye contact. When in porn do we see two lovers stare into each other's eyes? Never. If the camera came that close, it would bash the participants in the head.

    I am trying to make this a priority when I make love, to look into my wife's eyes. Only real sex can offer this type of arousal and intimacy.

    The more I realize as to what porn is lacking, the more I want to abstain from it.

    So interesting how hypocritical we as porn addicts are.

    We are not okay with watching our own spouses/partners and daughters having sex with others, but we have no problem watching other people's partners and daughters having sex with others.

    Hypothetically...

    If a video was released of someone (not you) having sex with your wife, you'd punch that guy in the face. However if a video was released of someone having sex with somebody else's wife you would likely have no objection.

    I am not following the relevance of orgies, swingers and polygamy.

    The "mirror" comment is humorous (in fact it's hilarious). I understand why the comment was made. Put a mirror in a certain place and you can see T & A at the same time.

    I also understand how the conversation has included the subject of Voyeurism and computer Voyeurism - watching people having sex.

    What do multiple partners and trust have to do with the visuals of porn vs. the visuals of real sex?

    Well if you're in an orgy then you can view T and A at the same time, albeit of different people. My comment was regarding that topic.

    I don't think it's hypocritical to watch other people have sex and not watch your loved ones have sex. Just as it's not hypocritical to watch other people wrestle on TV, but teach your kids against violence.

    yeah this is the big thing. When you make love especially on missionary. It's complete different thing. I close my eyes, and I dont see anything a lot. So it becomes much less in the flesh, and more in the spirit, the beautiful act." Porn just falsely trains your brain for maximum pervert exposure to sex parts... Not normal.

    Not just the camera angles, but the angles the performers hold themselves at to allow the camera to see the mechanics of what's going on are totally unrealistic. I don't remember what video I saw, but it was some performer talking about how when he thrusts it's more of a "side to side" motion instead of front to back because he has to open the hips up for the camera. And that does not sound like appealing or satisfying sex to me.

    @theGECK Can you imagine being a male prnstar? U would feel like such a filthcan. IMO male Pstars are worse than the girls. Taking advantage of them defenseless young vulnerable woman. Instead of being real men, enriching the woman, they give them herpes. I wish this entire industry to die.
