Re: Sex: myth busters!

I think porn sex is completely different to real sex but I think we still think of porn sex as a good indication of real sex... I don't think we do seperate them as much as we should x

Re: Sex: myth busters!

Yes we definitely hear a lot from young people that it's part of where they learned about sex! Especially if they can't get the info from anywhere else!

Here is the first question friends!!!

1. How do you think porn sex compares with real sex?


I think porn sex is completely different to real sex! Porn is staged, set for the camera, and essentially an act. In real life, people look and act differently (especially in bed), and sex is definitely not always as perfect or clear-cut as porn might make you think. It can be awkward, fast, people can fumble... but that's all part of the real, human experience.

Re: Sex: myth busters!

I agree Gail, porn is a movie it is staged, just like the fast driving and explosions faked in movies, porn sex is faked and those "explosions" are also done by and for paid actors

Re: Sex: myth busters!

Absolutely Gail. It is staged, which makes it quite different to sex in real life. It is set up to be 'perfect', to turn people on and to look sexy at the angle it's taken. Sex in real life is a lot different!

It can certainly set up unrealistic expectations of ourselves and each other....

Haha explosions! Yes, surely they probably even has CGI in porn these days...

Re: Sex: myth busters!

Sex scenes in movies are often quite fake too. When do you ever see any awkwardness? Or questions about consent?

Re: Sex: myth busters!

mhmm I think there's a lot of real life sex stuff that porn doesn't portray at all... you know important things like communication, consent! Those things that are SUPER important in real life, but are left out of porn!

Re: Sex: myth busters!

That's a great point Anna, movies influence our culture and selves so much - imagine all the positive change that could come if movies suddenly showed all these great conversations about people navigating consent!
