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.

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*

Amie
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,… Read more »

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.:)

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.

Gail
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.

Here is BelAmi’s address. They are a European site, very similar to Corbin Fisher and, as a matter of fact, I found them because they are doing an “exchange” program with CF this summer.

Thanks Gail. I’ll be sure to include this URL in the list of “safe” sites.

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… Read more »

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,… Read more »

Hi Cathleen

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!!!

Wave and Fae Sutherland, I don’t know if you ever saw that video with Logan McCree painting in the background (with clothes on) of “Just Cuz” – Kent James Bandhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7J_ax3s8-I&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fheroesnhunks%2Ecom%2Fwordpress%2F2008%2F10%2F17%2Fwhat%2Dpornstars%2Ddo%2Dwhen%2Dbored%2Dlogan%2Dmccree%2F&feature=player_embedded

Argghh. The stupid bracket at the end included itself in the link. Try again.

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.

Wave

Tam
The link didn’t work. Could you please check and re-send?

Kris
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

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)

As a bi man i too have some favourites

“@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??

I’m with Tam, I’d like some recs too! I’ve watched XTube before, but it’s just been a matter of pot-luck. So if anyone has some links, that would be great.

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… Read more »

Okay Wave, Canadian trivia, did you know gay porn star Brent Everett (SFW piccomment image) 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
Ozakie 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?… Read more »

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!

I’ve already had a life scarring experiencing. Do you KNOW what self-anal means? Ack! I have NEVER imagined that, although the phrase “go fuck yourself” takes on a whole new meaning.

Seems like the majority of the stuff on there is 15 seconds or 1.5 min. Personally, if you can do something significant in 15 seconds, you might need to seek medical help. 🙂 I didn’t surf around too much though, I’ll do that when I don’t have to be quite so discreet.

I’m up for recs, e-mail me some.
