What Beginners Need to Know About Watching Porn

by Beth Divine 7 Nov 2018

While most people have sneaked a peek at something salacious on the internet, there is a wealth of misunderstanding about porn: where to find it, how to choose what to watch and how normal are your tastes? Read on to learn more!

To start with the last: how normal are your tastes? Most of us have at least one (and probably many more) experience of saying ‘I like XXX’ and having one person say, usually loudly and dogmatically, ‘Ugh, I hate that! I can’t stand people who like it!’ When this happens, often the other people in the conversation will go suspiciously quiet and note really respond any more, leaving us with the impression that we are just weird, and that everyone is too polite to verbally agree with the loudmouth, but that they secretly do. Wrong! Products and services are made in response to demand, and if no one really ever liked the orange or strawberry Quality Street, would the company keep making them? No, they would not. But people do like those chocs, they’re just embarrassed to say so because it seems juvenile when Nigel from accounting is declaring that the only chocolate he really likes is a Madagascan dark enveloped around an Ethiopian coffee bean, glazed with truffle oil and wrapped in edible gold foil. If what you are interested in sexually is a common category on the mainstream porn sites, you are probably smack-bang in the middle of normal. No matter what Janice in Accounts says!

Where to find it, next. Well, easy. Internet. Okay, that’s a little flippant, there’s a great big internet out there. For your first forays, go to places like Cosmopolitan and browse through their ‘life and style’ articles with ‘porn’ as your keyword. They are dedicated to making sure that everyone enjoys sex, and there are a wealth of pieces that can ease you into watching porn without guilt. Cosmo will give you some places to start, and some of the jargon to use: anal, blow-job and straight are pretty straight-forward, but you may ask what does ‘machine’, ‘latex’ and ‘Latinx’ mean when it comes to porn? And will I like them?

What to watch

Browse through all the categories over time! Most people spend a mere six to fifteen minutes on a porn-watching session, and watching for too long can make it lose its thrill. Don’t worry too much about pop ups and viruses, which used to be a major problem in the early days of porn on the internet: porn is more mainstream now and sites are hosted by reputable companies. If you have never watched porn before, you might be horrified by the many explicit closeups, and being able to see body parts that you’ve only ever caught a mere glimpse of in a darkened room! Even if you are horrified you will probably also be turned on – this is very normal. Some categories will leave you cold, while others – even of things that you’ve never really considered before – might make you very excited indeed.

Porn can be a useful outlet and release of pent-up tensions, helping you to enjoy sex or to masturbate. It can also be addictive, so do monitor your porn usage, and if it ever gives rise to concern for you, seek help from a psychiatrist. Very few people will need intervention, though, for most people porn is a slightly shameful thing that they indulge in from time to time. Don’t be ashamed of it, our sex drive is a natural bodily urge that needs to be satisfied, just as hunger needs to be satiated with food.
