SGB and other interested parties... How do you go about choosing porn?

Branching out, trying new things etc, but when faced with an array of titles on tv/internet we realised we have no idea what we are doing

How the hell do you go about choosing porn?

Neither of us have watched it before (well, DH has seen dodgy 70s stuff), so how do we know what we want? All we are certain of (from far too many repeated clips on one of the channels) is that we don't want gay men.

The pros and cons of the industry really aren't the debate atm. Pretend I a choosing steak - if you're veggie then just close the thread wink

(Sorry for this on a Sunday lunchtime blush)

ok well you need to know what sort of things are going to turn you on.

Whilst im sure you Dh will love a lot of clips showing a man recieving oral sex im sure it will do very little for you.

also if you've not seen it before are you sure you want to? do you think you will find it a turn on? if not then don't bother.

I would find a freeview webpage (like redtube.com) (not that i would know as im pure and innocent) and have a look around. see what sort of stuff gets you going.

once you have decided what sort of films you want you will need to either look online or visit an adult shop.

don't get any of the soft ann summers stuff as its really quite pants. its all very soft. its a bit like mills and boon to music.

good luck and have fun.

Take a look at worldsex.com blush A friend told me, honest!

TryingNewThings Sun 30-Aug-09 12:19:34

It was seeing the very soft stuff on a film channel last night that made us think it could be good, if it wasn't as crap as that iyswim

Good to see the pure and innocent MNers coming out wink (Only name changed because DH whinged the other day about other stuff I have shared in the past....)

Go to Ann Summers together??? they have some porn directed by women.

Dominique07 Sun 30-Aug-09 12:25:43

oh sorry i see we don't like ann summers as its porn is too soft! mock shock

But its better than some hardcore porn aimed only at male viewers.

better listen to someone more experienced then! grin

Mamazon Sun 30-Aug-09 12:27:19

the problem i find with the soft stuff is that its sofake its off putting.

OurLadyOfPerpetualSupper Sun 30-Aug-09 12:31:51

You might actually find reading rather than watching stuff is what does it for you - in fact, I think I recall reading somewhere that women respond more to written words than to images.

Erm a friend of mine tells me Love Boudoir can be quite good - some of the blogs are hilariously bad but some do the trick (so she tells me).

I'm sure there are loads more if you search.

Violet Blue is a sex educator and expert in this field - you will find loads of information on her website here.

TryingNewThings Sun 30-Aug-09 20:20:17

Ooh thank you for the replies!

Reading works for me, but not really a shared activity iyswim (I can't see me reading aloud to him...)

porn follows a tediously similar script.

man meets woman.
woman strips off.
man takes top off.
man goes down on woman who begins oscar winning moaning and writhing.
15 seconds later, she jumps up and undoes his flies.
He then gets oral for 5 - 10 minutes (spot the unfairness there!)
then he penetrates her.
She does some more OTT yelping and panting and he does some half arsed grunting.
Then he flips her over and they carry on.
Then he pulls out and goes up her arse.
Then back in the front again (how bloody unhygienic! yuk)
then you lose the will to live as the thrusting and grunting go on despite it not looking like he's doing much of anything interesting.
Then they orgasm - together of course, get dressed and bog off home.

Tres dull.

ooer, how did that happen? sorry

ilovemydogandmrobama Sun 30-Aug-09 20:30:51

nominate as quote of the week wink

QueenOfFuckingEverything Sun 30-Aug-09 20:34:41

Not all porn follows that script - I had an ex who had this dirty novel with the loosest of plots about ghosts of all things hmm and they did not get dressed afterwards iirc.

Beautiful double posting there though grin

muggglewump Sun 30-Aug-09 20:35:09

It depends what you want to see.

I use the free sites out there but I have a type I want to watch, so I choose that on the sites.

I don't watch what Hecates does!

muggglewump Sun 30-Aug-09 20:36:45

Oh, and I just re-read and see you don't want gay men, so I can't really help.

Gay men is my thing.

HelenHighwater Sun 30-Aug-09 20:42:59

Worldsex.. thanks dizzymare wink

I ahve been known to nosey at the likes of redtube - you can fast forward to the bits that 'interest you'. Dp refuses to share porn with me and acts strangely coy when it's mentioned.

I've seen Debby Derrier on TV, it was aimed at teenagers about the illusion of porn.

dizzymare Sun 30-Aug-09 21:09:41

Welcome helenhighwater, my friend tells me if you scroll right down to the bottom of the homepage, there's different theatres to chooseblush

HelenHighwater Sun 30-Aug-09 21:12:55

My notebook and pen are out. Soo many suggestions, so little time...

Different theatres.. I see what you mean. Your friend is very well informed

muggglewump Sun 30-Aug-09 21:29:40

Redtube, or Porntube.
Both have a variety so you can choose whatever you want.
89.com, for quick clips is not bad too. Huge variety on there, though it is quick clips, not a long video.

Literotica is good for reading material.
