Do You Watch Gay Porn?

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.

I LOVE GAY PORN. Being first introduced to gay romance when reading Anne Rice’s “Armand” when I was 13, I’ve been a huge fan of gay porn/yaoi/BL/ m/m- whatever you want to call it- since then. Even though I’m a bi (recently changed to pan) female, and I have a girlfriend of seven years, I can’t stand watching lesbian porn. Heck, I can barely watch straight porn unless the girl is being done up the butt. There is just more appeal to it, I guess.I can’t really explain it. All I can say is that I didn’t like Brokeback Mountain… Read more »

Ooo, this discussion was made for me! I absolutely watch gay porn! In fact I have a larger collection then some gay friends. I left curiosity years back and now watch it for the reason it was made. I sometimes veer into Bi porn and rarely watch straight porn. Though what straight porn I watch comes from gay sites. (It seems as if the gay porn sites are realizing they are starting to have a large straight girl audience and are trying to cater to them. From what I understand it’s a fairly newish phenomena…though I could be wrong.) And… Read more »

I’ll admit I do. I’ve always thought I was in the minority when it came to women watching any porn at all because it’s always been something I’ve considered as viable foreplay. I’m very visually oriented, and I got over any squeamishness I might have had when I was in college and worked at a video store that rented it out. When you’ve had to watch a few hundred videos because a customer claims it’s faulty, they lose their power to shock after a while, lol. Frankly, gay porn is the same as straight porn for me. I do watch… Read more »

Yes. One of the highlights of my visits to Sydney a few years ago was visiting the Tool Shed. I’m not ashamed about watching gay porn, but I haven’t told my Mum. My daughter knows though.

I’ve looked at clips of gay porn online but have never seen a complete porn movie.

I am wildly curios but no. I am to afraid of getting all sorts of trash on my computer like viruses and such.

Teddypig posted a few bloggers not too long ago who were into gay porn. I looked at those blogs and looked at some clips. Does that count?
