Do You Watch Gay Porn?

22,908 Views

It’s been a while since I posted a poll and I thought this would be a good way to start off the new website.:)

I couldn’t sleep last  night and was reading some of my “saved” articles and came across one that I had set aside  a few months ago  because I wanted to do a poll on this subject. So here’s the question. Do.You.Watch.Gay.Porn? Many of you will lie through your teeth and say “no” while your nose grows longer. :) However, I know that some of us do watch gay porn and will continue denying we do until we drop and go to the happy hunting ground, where we can watch even more gay porn.  :) You might be part of this group of deniers. If so, you don’t need to read any further because you’re not interested in the topic. Right? However if, like me, you admit to watching, why do you do so? Is it the kink factor? Personally I love to see two hot men getting it on, and the guys in gay porn are usually buff, not like those in regular porn whose only attribute is having the biggest dick in town, never mind the pot bellies and skinny legs.

The next question is – Do you think that gay porn is an extension of reading M/M books or gay fiction? Some of the books are pretty raunchy and if you like to visualize (most men prefer pictures to words) you could probably imagine yourself starring in a movie with the protagonists in an M/M romance or gay fiction book. It seems that women don’t watch a lot of straight porn because they are obviously made by men for men and the women in those movies are creepy looking with fake boobs that are so big they threaten their balance. But gay porn is much richer and better quality stuff and some straight women and lots of gay men find it more enjoyable I’m told. According to the latest research, some straight couples as well as straight men now admit to watching man on man action between the sheets.

Do you think that the recent explosion of gay porn is directly connected to ease of access? You don’t have to go to your neighbourhood video store any more to purchase a DVD  and have the store clerk recognise you. Now you can just order online and download your purchase or watch free gay porn because anything is available on the ‘net.

In an article posted by Metro.co.uk the author, Lisa Scott, tried to explain this trend

brokeback-mountain-posters“Watching Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal rolling around in a tent in Ang Lee’s groundbreaking Brokeback Mountain had knees trembling all over the world. Many of those lustily quivering weren’t gay romantics but women. ‘Who knew man-on-man action could be so beautiful?’ they cried.

Although some women have been in on the secret for a while (Japan’s female population lap up boy-love comics while slash fiction, which turns two male characters from cult TV shows into lovers, is mainly for women), us British girls have been lagging behind. Until now.”

‘Which is where male gay porn comes in,’ says Prof Clarissa Smith, author of One For The Girls!, a book about women’s fascination with porn.’It’s a holiday in someone else’s experience,’ explains Smith.

Leading gay fiction author James Lear, … named Writer of the Year at the prestigious Erotic Awards, has seen a sharp rise in British women getting to grips with boy-only sex. His first book, The Back Passage (ahem) was more popular with women than men and his new novel, The Secret Tunnel, looks like it will repeat the same success.

‘As one female fan put it: “One penis is good, two even better,”‘ he explains. ‘They fancy men, they’re turned on by men and so they’re even more turned on by men with men – it’s like “man squared”.’

Asked to explain this phenomenon of women watching gay porn, Lear said It’s even more basic than that. ‘Female readers don’t need a central female character to identify with; they get off on men as men get off on women, appreciating their bodies, enjoying graphic descriptions of sex and objectifying men. They love the idea of a randy gay man seducing other men.’

Brokeback Mountain opened all kinds of doors to women in terms of identifying with male/male characters in romantic relationships in movies and since then the market for gay movies seems to be in the stratosphere, with movies like Shelter which has a huge following. I want to be clear, these two examples are not gay porn movies just gay movies (my gay movies don’t have pretty pictures on the package):)

Is it mostly women who are buying and watching gay porn or do gay AND straight men get off on gay porn as well?

Back to my original question. Do.You.Watch.Gay.Porn? Guys and gals, gay or straight :) especially those of you who make up my large contingent of lurkers, I would appreciate your comments if you’re brave enough to admit you enjoy this dastardly pastime. This is just a fun  poll to see how far we’ve come, or not.

    Wave,

    I can’t believe I missed this poll?! Where have I been? LOL..Aww it was so awesome to read the comments! Its like hearing pervy men talking about the porn stash, but its wonderful WOMEN *sniffs wipes tear* Aww the progress of women’s lib! Yall have come so far. I wonder if Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan ever thought one of the benefits of women’s lib was that finally women can freely disclose their love of gay porn! LOL ;-)

    Okay, Im going to say this, and as a gay man I know I may have to revoke my gay card, but I’m actually more into straight porn. I just starting to get into gay porn. I know shockers, but heres the reason. My first taste of porn was Hustler, Penthouse, and Playboy. I became acquainted with straight porn stars. Straight porn was simply the only thingn available. Many gay men first encounter straight porn so its not a stretch for them to be more acquainted with straight porn or view it more often than gay porn IMO.

    What is also interesting that many of you pointed out things in gay porn that also irritate me are 1) The sex is so mechanical. Yes K.Z. I so agree with you on that. I love passionate sex, not insert penis here. I actually like a little kissing. This may be TMI, but I like sex that is a little shall I say “roughly passionate” and I have that in more straight porn than gay porn. I KNOW its out there I guess I got to dig and investigate more further..;-) 2.) Mrs. Fae Sutherland hit it DEAD ON THE NAIL for me I think the biggest pet peeve of mine about some of gay porn: the flaccid bottom. WTH? I dont know if there even words for me to describe this oxymoron. Along with being flaccid, how about the bottoms who just LIE THERE like first base. WTF? I mean cmon when some HOT top guys like Logan Mcree, Diesel Washington, or Michael Lucas is giving you “ass-pounding goodness”, why on earth is the bottom just lying there sometimes not even making a sound??
    Enjoy being there like Brent Corrigan. Cmon
    betas/bottoms! Enjoy the ride (Dont excuse the pun i mean what I say figuratively ;-P ) But I will say Im watching more and more gay porn so I dont think I have to revoke my gay card anytime soon! ;-)

    I laughed so hard I almost peed myself. I wondered where you were. I spent a great deal of last night writing this damn post and you were nowhere to be found today.

    Now you have new best friends in the porn business and I know the names of the stars of gay porn movies. I can’t believe this! I just hope I don’t have another inspiration like this at least for a couple of weeks.

    These guys had a real party on the site exchanging information on websites and movies. What did I start with this damn post? It’s great to have you back Ozakie and please don’t let these women spoil you.

  3. Tam

    Okay Wave, Canadian trivia, did you know gay porn star Brent Everett (SFW pic http://tsjfmj.net/info/pix/brent_everett.jpg) who is not to be confused with cutie Brent Corrigan, is from Moosejaw, Saskatchewan. HOW do I know this? Ummm, I forget why I was searching for him and found it on wikipedia. LOL

    Oh and he as actually filmed with Brent Corrigan so you have a festival of Brents out there somewhere.

    Wave,
    It’s funny you should bring this up now because I am just finishing up the edits for my next M/M book for Loose id, The Lost, so I’m in a M/M kinda mood. Yes, I know most readers of this blog are ALWAYS in that M/M mood but for me, I really have to be feeling it to write or read M/M.
    Anyway, on to your question. I prefer gay movies with some sex and lots of plot to actual gay porn. But that is for the same reason that I can’t find hardly ANY straight porn that I like. I WANT PLOT. Not just bump and grind and bow-chika-bow-bow. And no, the repairman showing up at the door to fix something doesn’t count as plot. I want a good, juicy story line and characters that have a hard time getting together. Don’t just say “I’m gay and you’re gay so I guess we should have sex.” Ugh, I hate that kind of thing! Gay or straight it needs a plot but unfortunately no one has notified the porn industry of that.
    The other reason I don’t watch gay porn is that I don’t really want to see what those in the porn industry call “plumbing shots.” That is–the pole going into the hole, to put it crudely. (sorry.) It’s just too much and too graphic. It’s hot to write and read about it but when I actually see it I feel overwhelmed. lol, I know, crazy, huh?
    My favorite gay thing to watch still remains Queer as Folk. I really loved the drama and angst and the hot almost-kind of sex where you see two guys grinding against each other without actual penetration. I say, leave something to the imagination, please. So while I like to read and write very graphic M/M novels, I find that I only want to watch R rated gay movies and shows. Does that make sense?
    BTW, if anyone can reccomend some good gay movies along the guidelines I mentioned above, please list them. I am always looking for more inspiration and I am currently working on a new M/M book that is only about 1/3 done.

    “@Jen, I wonder why you feel the need to say it´s not Kris *g*”

    I wanna know what that means too. Bloody hell. You make me sound like a pimp when I’m clearly one of the ‘innocents’ amongst the rest of you lot.

    I’ve never been a porn watcher/viewer, gay or otherwise. *shrugs* Just doesn’t float my boat. I’m more into reading erotica or porn as well as comics and manga.

    I think for me it’s more about my imagination being stimulated with the fantasy as opposed to everything being laid out visually before me. Does that make sense??

  7. Cathleen

    A little late to the party, but at least I showed. Gay movies not often, but I have/do. There are a few I liked. I like “Gay Hot Movies’” site if I want to watch any m/m porn. You can watch certain scenes & save them as faves (if you want to come back). You don’t have to watch the entire movie.
    Yes, to gay porn. That would be why I am so familar with the Corbin Fisher & Blake Mason sites. ;o)

    It does make a lot of sense. Most men are into pictures while women are at the opposite end of the scale – they prefer the written word so that they can use their imagination. But the beauty of all this is that as human beings we don’t all run true to type in terms of the way we’re hard wired, which is why the responses here are all over the map.

    I wonder what Jen meant?:DDD

  9. Jenre

    I only meant that people know that Kris and I are internet buddies and I didn’t want people to think she was the one who sent me the porn! You see I *know* she’s all sweet and innocent on the inside and I wanted to save her blushes.

    btw. I love Brent Corrigan too. He’s twinky, but very cute.

    The party is still going on apparently. I’m now getting emails with suggestions.:)

    Thanks for the pics BTW – one of them made it into tomorrow’s Friday Guys.

    Yeh to Corbin Fisher and Blake Mason!!!

  12. Wave Post author

    Evangeline
    I totally understand where you’re coming from. Many women are not hard wired like men in terms of just going for the sex, therefore any kind of porn turns them off, gay or straight. It’s like reading PWP (porn without plot) – it’s mainly men who buy these books, although the number of women is now increasing with the ability to order online.

    I don’t think porn was ever intended to tell a story with great characters and a HEA, which is why the audience is limited primarily to those who access it with a specific purpose in mind, if you get my drift.:) These movies are mostly forgettable but I enjoy them and so do lots of other women and men.

    I can understand why you can write about the “plumbing shots” but don’t want to actually see what they look like. Again, it comes down to the way some women are hard wired to prefer just reading about it and imagining what the sex actually looks like rather than having it front and center.

    I’ve been interested in m/m romance since the mid-seventies when I first read The Front Runner and then the Gordon Merrick books. It wasn’t easy to find for a long time, but every now and then I’d find a gem and read it over and over. Now, with Amazon, Loose-ID, Dreamspinner, and others, I can order e-books and have them in a few seconds. Wonderful!

    The internet definitely makes it easier. I would never have the nerve to go into an adult store here in my home town (if my home town HAD an adult store) but here in the privacy of my own home, I can enter my credit card info and it’s right there on my computer in HD.

    I’ve been a member of Corbin Fisher almost since the beginning and dabble in a few other sites here and there when something, usually a particular kink, catches my eye.

    There are a few things that really ‘float my boat’ that I’ve worked up to convincing my husband let me do and now he asks me for. Not bad for a conservative straight guy.

  14. Wave Post author

    Hi Gail
    Thanks for commenting.

    It’s amazing the freedom that the internet has given to mainly women (but some men as well) who wouldn’t even think of going into an adult bookstore or video store because they’re afraid of being recognized. The internet has also spawned thousands of porn sites, most of which are relatively virus free, and Corbin Fisher is certainly a favourite. I hope to list a few sites on this post by tomorrow which other bloggers have sent in, so if you’re interested you might want to check by in a couple of days.

    Your husband sounds pretty open minded.:)

    1. gail

      The amazing thing is that my husband isn’t really that open minded at all. I keep working on him, though :)

      I’ll be sure to check back tomorrow for the sites. Has anyone else mentioned BelAmi? Another of my favorites.

      1. Wave Post author

        I don’t believe that anyone mentioned BelAmi so if you want to leave the link either here or email it to me that would be great.

    Wave, you have a big thank you from me for starting this dialog! I have to admit to not having been a big porn fan, mostly due to the poor quality of the acting. It’s hard to be turned on by someone who is obviously not enjoying themselves and/or is being degraded. Disappointing since I’m both visual and aural as much as I am a reader. I did follow some of the recommended links and, oh mamma! What a difference; sign me up twice!

    I have gone into our local adult mega-store. If I go alone I get perved on, if I go with the hubby sometimes we both get perved on and we both get uncomfortable with being stared at continuously. I’ve also found that the clerks push specific items that are on a sell list, not based on quality or personal enjoyment, even if they do say that they love this product. I’ve bought several items based on an enthusiastic employee recommendation that disappointed, weren’t as advertised or broke. Being able to read a review is invaluable. The smaller stores are so sleazy that I don’t go in them after trying one or two, and some of them are definitely NOT safe to go into. Go internet!

    Amie
    Glad to help:) However, as I said on the post, there is no guarantee that any site is absolutely virus free, because viruses can emerge at any time. So far no one has indicated that they have had any trouble. The Internet certainly seems to be the way to go.*g*

  17. Wave Post author

    As promised, here’s a list of sites provided by your fellow bloggers.

    It’s my understanding that these are safe sites, but if anyone gets a virus, adware, spyware or any other bad stuff, we’re not liable. Just getting that out of the way, so now on to the fun stuff! *g*

    Some of the links, such as this one
    http://community.livejournal.com/the_gloryhole/
    are veritable open sesame to additional sites. If you have any problems accessing any of the sites it may be because there’s a membership requirement which I believe is free in most cases.

    http://dailyslab.blogspot.com/ A real gold mine.

    Also, some nice stuff in the archives of Gay Porn for girls:

    And if you’re into gay orgies, check out the trailers on this page:

    Many sites with gay porn ask for a membership. A lot of the M/M fans at The Phade are into Corbin Fisher and Menatplay.

    I’m a gay man and I love gay hardcore porn. Occasionally I will watch bi or shemale, but I’m watching the men. A few companies that I prefer are Titan and Raging Stallions and Colt. And an amateur site is Sean Cody. I get most of my videos free through google or yahoo groups and rapidshare.

    But even though I have 5 external hard drives and 3 are full of porn, I know, how much is enough? It’s NEVER enough! There is always a new video with a new star with a big dick or hairy chest and so fuckin’ hot I gotta see it! Ok, back to the ‘eventhough’, I still like written porn best. I have been a collector of the old gay paperback books from the ’70′s and 80′s since after my college days in the 80′s. I’ve got a couple hundred that I like and have been through hundreds more finding the ones I like. You definitely can’t tell a gay porno book by it’s cover. Craig Esposito sure knew how to draw hot men! And these books are very explicit.

    When I masturbate, I don’t fantasize myself in these roles, I change the action in my mind. The hot shot quarterback that fucks the team towel boy in action in a book, becomes a 3 way with the coach and the trainer fucking the quarterback, in my mind. And lots of other combinations, imagination is a wonderful thing. grin

    I like reading online as well. When I got my first pc in 1998, one of the first websites I found was nifty.org . And there are many others. Lots of authors have their own yahoo groups where they release their new work first before posting it at nifty. And some of these authors have gone on to write for profit.

    And for the longest time I thought that only men authors could write gay porn. Chris Owen shattered that myth for me with Bareback. And now my most favorite author is M.L. Rhodes!

    Thanks for a great topic.

    I should have included nifty in the list because I have visited this site often in the past and I know that many authors such as Bobby Michaels got their start at nifty.

     
    You mention Titan, Raging Stallion and Colt but you didn’t give us the links. Would it be possible for you to post these links here so that other bloggers can access the sites? Thanks so much. Just doing a public service here. I’ll add nifty to the list myself since I know the link.

    I love gay porn when it is done right…

    That being say, straight porn often has no plot and is just sex – bad sex at that. Gay porn can be the same way, but neither have to be.

    Good porn is like a good book. A gentle mix of plot, sex and imagination.

  24. Wave Post author

    Hi Morana
    It’s too bad that most of the directors and producers of gay and straight porn don’t use their imaginations more. However, things may change in the future as more women get into this business and they target their films to other women..

  25. John R

    Morana–

    I suggest the movie “HOMOgenized”. I had to watch it twice in a row. The second time, fast forwarding through the sex, just to watch the bits with the plot.

    Might be hard to find, but it’s an excellent mix of sex and plot.

    Am I brave enough to admit you enjoy this dastardly pastime? Dastardly pastime? Really?

    I love gay porn. Not ashamed and not hiding it. Don’t talk about it at work, but that is because it is unprofessional. Don’t talk about it at church or in front of my mother, because that is just tacky.
