    I understand that you are separating the adult content to allow for people to easily find what they like, and that is fine, but why are there so many gay-themed threads in the straight section.

    I mean, if you are going to the effort of making the distinction shouldn't the threads reflect that? Like the "Gay Torrents" sticky, the "homo-erotic themes" thread, or the "flashing cocks" thread, etc?

    I, personally, don't see the need for the separation, but if you are going to do it...

    the separation was requested by many members. but you can't expect it to be 100% just one or two days after changing it. ;)

    If you find content in either forum that you believe should be moved - please feel free to send me a PM and I will do my best to get it done.

    There have been several changes "behind the scenes" that are also being worked on at this time, but as Flamey says, if anyone feels the need to lighten the load (oh that was badly worded) and send me a PM with a list of links to threads that need to be moved, it would speed things up a great deal.

    If however you don't feel the need, please continue viewing/wanking to your hearts content :biggrin1:

    Where does shemale sex go? If it is a shemale with a woman, is it straight, but with a man gay? How about girl/girl? That isn't straight is it? Then there is bi-sexual.....

    I wish the homophobes hadn't won this one.....

    You know... I hadn't even thought of that!!

    I don't know, and if I'm completely honest, I don't want any part in making that call. I don't think I or anyone else should be making the call on behalf of individual shemales as to which sexuality they identify as.

    As for girl on girl, I say we put that in the gay section, I mean two women fisting each other is hardly the straightest of activities around and it might annoy the homophones you speak of :biggrin1:

    Since your trying to make your members happy by seperating the straight and gay content I'd like to request a bisexual section. Put the straight and gay topics all together. That way those of us who are not offended or who dont feel the need to be dramatic can view everything without doubling our efforts.

    I was wondering about this too. Ultimately isn't makng the distinction between "Gay" porn and "Straight" porn totally redundant in this situation? I mean the number of so called "Straight" threads which seem to focus on male admiration or sexual arousal at images of other men's cocks or other homo-erotic turn-ons in a "heterosexual" context is pretty big.

    And where does Bi-sexual porn fit in this new scheme of things?

    I mean if the only clear distinction being made here is that porn where only men have some kind of sex with other men is separated into a different section it seems to be at least tacit acceptance of some kind of discrimination.

    Now I'm sure some guys and girls are happy that they no longer have to go to the enormous effort of searching for Man on Man only threads and I'm sure some guys and girls are relieved not to have to ignore threads they're not interested in any more, because we all know what a chore that is :rolleyes:, but is it OK to ask what exactly the reasoning behind this completely arbitrary seeming distinction is ?

    The change was made by the owner after at least 1 very long thread came to life demanding better organisation of this section of the site.

    Now I'm not saying the distinction is perfect as it is, and obviously bi and shemale porn are troubling until the current sections (no matter where we put them, someone will disagree)

    We are listening to all the comments and discussing them though, and I'm sure we'll get it all worked out eventually :smile:

    Can we maybe have an anything goes section? Where shemale and bi videos can be posted.

    I was posting the girl/girl to show how difficult this could become, because most of the people who will watch it are straight guys.

    Edit: The anything goes would also allow for other things, like the Ultimate Surrender vids where girls wrestle girls and then sexually dominate them.

    So don't click on the threads you aren't interested in. Duh. Separating things into different threads just makes it more likely you'll miss something you might have been interested in.

    +1. Maybe we should get really ridiculous and make 20 different sections labeled "100% Gay/0% Straight" "90% Gay/10% Straight" 90% Straight/10% Gay" etc.

    Well at least the "amatuer" section is gone now though.

    Funny, everyone who doesn't want to see gay porn is a homophobe? In my opinion people who really think that are even worse than the real homophobes.

    Hud, homophobes fear gays, people who find gay sex distasteful are not homophobes. Just as many 100% gay people find the thought of straight sex distasteful, 100% straight people are entitled to their opinions. Not everyone is a homphobe if they disagree with gay lifestyles or gay porn. It is just not for them.

    But why don't you just go past the threads that you don't want to look at?

    I don't care to look at gay porn (or a lot of other types of porn) either, but I don't need thread titles containing porn I'm not interested in hidden from me. You could make a different section for every "taste" out there.

    Should we have a "shemale" section also? How about "cock and ball torture" section? I don't care for either of those, and I'm guessing you don't as well. So should we protect ourselves from having to read threads that might contain those things?

    My point is putting every different thing into different section creates a disorganized mess that makes it harder to find what you DO want to look at. All just to protect people from having to look at a thread title that will contain some content the viewer might find distasteful.

    Also it creates more work for the moderators who probably have better things to think about than deciding if a threesome where two cocks brush up against each other belongs in the "gay" or "straight" section.

    EDIT:
    I'm certainly pleased that I no longer have to go to two different sections to find something I might want to check out based on whether it was deemed "amateur" or "regular" by someone. Thanks for changing that back mods!

    Not to mention the fact that THIS website is devoted to cocks! And some men who come here are "too straight" to be comfortable being exposed to thread titles suggesting gay content. LOL

    What about it there were "heteroerotic-scenes-in-gay-porn" thread. Where would that go? haha.

    Dude, your funny but it doesn't make any sense at all what you're writing.
    First of all he can't go past the "gay" threads because 90% of the time the title doesn't say "gay". While I have no problem with opening such links, some may have. Doesn't make them a homophobe though.
    Next thing is you compare small niches to gay erotic? You know how offending that may sound to gay people?
    And as mentioned above no one cares about reading thread titles that contain stuff you don't like. The problem was stupid thread titles that didn't give any hint what you'll find clicking that link.
    Now the question is why do YOU complain? The separation in 2 subforums is no big deal. But you make a mountain out of a molehill.

    I'd say threads pretty much say what they are about. I have been coming here for quite a while now and have never "accidentally" clicked on a video I didn't want to see.

    I'm just going to extremes to make a point. As others have pointed out there are plenty of "iffy" categories out there; girl-on-girl porn, someone mentioned, is that "gay" or "straight"? how about bi porn? How about big-small comparison thread? There are picture in there with just guys and guys and girls. Where does that go?

    As far as "stupid threads" that mislead, like I said I have yet to see any. Could you post some examples of threads that might mislead a straight person into gay content. That would help me understand why this is even an issue.

    Hey I don't care that much either way, I'm not making a mountain out of anything. I'd argue the people who made an issue of having to be exposed to threads with gay content are making the mountain out of the molehill.

    I'm just piping in on a thread that is talking about the pros and cons. I'll still come here and check stuff out either way. Just the way it is now, I might miss something that I'd be interested in seeing because someone decides a threesome video or something is "gay" and is therefore going to be in the "gay" section which I won't check out. That seems kinda dumb and counter intuitive and lame, so I'm voicing my opinion on the matter.

    For example I notice you've posted in the "measured porn stars" thread. Is that a gay thread? If it were in the gay section you would have missed the thread all together.
