    I just had a thought. Does what porn we watch and masterbate to affect what we find attractive, how and why? Does it affect what "tail we chase"? If you jerked off to completely different porn, would it have a significant impact on your sexuality?

    I suspect its actually the other way around. Would you (or could you) jerk off to something you didn't find attractive?

    This is very interesting... Lately, I have had less desire to beat-off and when I try, I usually give up after a short period of time. I thought about it and I figured out that my desire started waning about the same time I joined LPSG. I don't know whether I am getting over-sensitized to porn or if I am enjoying the process less now that I have so many bigger guys to compare to.

    There's a very fine line between what you are repulsed by versus what you are not attracted to. The latter of the two I think can shift one way or the other depending on your experiences and any personal philosophies. Sexuality is fluid, and we have the control to play around with that. After all, one's sexual identity isn't defined by your sexual practices right? Don't you just LOVE sex?!? :biggrin1:

    I agree that sexuality is fluid and you can find yourself attracted to different things throughout your life. But I can't imagine jerking off to something that I didn't find attractive...I wouldn't even be able to get it up. Now if you find yourself mildly attracted to something and begin watching more porn of that genre, perhaps your attraction to it could grow along with your interest in trying it personally. But I think there would have to be an initial interest.

    I'd have to say no, not really.

    I've always enjoyed watching lots of porn with women in it, but that doesn't mean that I'm actually all that interested in exploring women's sexuality. When I watch it, I tend to focus on the guys participating rather than the women, and that girl/girl thing that straight guys find so fascinating does absolutely nothing for me.

    A long time ago I gave up trying to rationalize/reconcile/define my porn choices, because some things can clearly be over-thought. I'll never forget the horror of a friend I had in my early 20s when he exclaimed aloud (after a few too many cocktails, at a party, to a roomful of people) that he was forever ruined because he no longer found solos and soft-core erotic enough to JO to. I found the topic risible and told him so.

    Various affects (ˈa-ˌfekts) may be exhibited by pornography or experienced by those who watch it, but I believe that you mean to ask about its effects (i-ˈfekts).
    There you go.

    What if it's the pornography itself which was the original spark of interest, something you stumbled upon while going through the "normal" porn you usually watch?
    I think pornography could be an avenue of exploration, a tool we can use to explore the different aspects of our sexuality, not simply something we jerk off to without thinking about it. Sometimes I do watch porn without j/o, or I continue watching afterwards.
    In a world where speaking about sex is taboo I don't think we use porn to our advantage as much as we really could. Obviously, it would require effort to find the right kind of porn with good enough quality, but I think it'd be worth it; we have to search for everything else anyways. At least this way, we get practice at web-surfing (a valuable skill these days).
    I've watched lesbian porn before and am actually curious about watching more. It doesn't turn me on as much as "straight" porn, but I still find it a valuable experience.

    The more i watch porn, the more i find myself liking different things....
    i never used to be into trannys, but i found myself watching tranny porn more than normal porn.. and then that somehow turned into watching gay porn, which led to me really wanting to try these things in real life..

    I agree with grain. At first I liked tits, then I saw big cock in porn and liked that, but thought ass was nasty. Now after watching lots of anal I love a hot ass too.

    I probably watch too much porn, and probably should be finding partners to play & jerk off with instead, but what porn has done for me is opened my mind to different sexual positions and different types of men that I now find more attractive...and also, to play safe.

    I agree with the "bad porn" comment, to a certain extent too. There are some things that I will watch and masturbate to, that I would not want to do in my real sex life. Porn and masturbation is just another branch of my sexual lifestyle, and not a shadow of it, necessarily. Some straight couples will do anal once in a while, but not every time that they have sex. Sometimes I masturbate to porn that is outside of my usual realm of material, but it does not change what gets me hot. Although, as I get older I find myself more attracted to different things than I was attracted to in my youth.

    I find these days that my favorite porn is of things I won't be doing in my real life. Porn of one guy fucking one girl just doesn't cut it any more. LOL. I can find something in almost any genre that I can jack off too. I enjoy finding those new and different things that will get me horny.

    no matter how many times I look up the difference, I can't fucking remember! :irked: It's a little pathetic I know...:frown2:
    This is exactly what I'm saying! The same thing happpened with me and women as I watched straight porn a couple times out of curiousity! I feel like it gives you more information to work with which can significantly alter your personal perspective!
