Watching porn with my partner

My girlfriend has said she would like to watch a bit of porn with me. I think this would be quite nice for us. Neither of us are into anything weird or 'ewww' in porn.

Can you tell me what sort of thing I should get? I know you'll say 'ask her what she likes' but she says 'surprise me with something/you pick'.

It's a new relationship (2 months) so I don't want to ruin it by picking something she finds off-putting.

I'm just looking for general categories which you think would be a safe bet or definite no-nos - obviously from your point of view.

Would you be offended by lesbian porn? Or should I just stick to a fairly simple 'man + woman + normal sex' thing?

Thanks.

Badinage I think you are right about the other threads, particularly one big one.

I consider myself a decent woman, but occasionally I watch porn. With and without my husband. These things are NOT mutually exclusive, and I'm offended by the implication that they are!!

I think it's more about the fact that it's OP's first post... plenty of regular posters ask for sex tips and these threads are well received.

Also I think a lot of people look at porn, but unless you're specifically seeking out "ethical" stuff you'd probably be horrified at the reality of it. That's why people are implying it's a horrible industry to support - the mainstream porn industry is.

The mainstream porn industry is pretty horrible, phoenixrose - maybe do some research if you're not aware.

My reaction to the OP was more the distinct unlikelihood of a young man (ooh!) coming on and asking a bunch of ^Mums for porn recommendations. grin

I mean, seriously. No disrespect to the likes of all of us. But really, would, you? As a single bloke? Ask some Mums?!

Just doesn't ring quite true. Where is Tom, but the way?
