Barely Legal or Barely a Turn-on?

I have a question for all my porn loving readers.

Does barely legal porn get hotter as you age?

If you’re 18, then you’re the same age as the models so it’s like looking at your peers (or at least someone pretending to be your peer), but if you’re 40, the models are technically young enough to be your children…

Or is there an age where barely legal porn is at it’s maximum hotness for you and after that it just feels creepy?

What about when you were under 18, did you even care about the age of the model?

Deep thoughts for a Monday, I know, but I was thinking about it in the shower this morning and I’d love to hear what you think.

In case I hadn’t already made it explicitly clear, in Barely Legal porn the models are 18 - it’s not pedophilia.

[weird side note - when I look at the picture above, all I can think is: man those socks look comfy!]

You could say that there are porn for everyone, lets take some examples: Ron Jeremy was an atlethic mate when he start in porn movies, later he became fat coz most of average poeple feel like him, also you could think about couples wich use porn to get in mood, personally I dont think its the porn wich makes you feel good/bad but the character you really think, like “wow that gal look just like that hot classmate” or “i could try that with my g/f at her apartment”, its not of the age of the porn but your own personal fantasy.

I’ve found that the older I get, the more attractive the older models get. The young ones are still nice, but I don’t actively look for them. I appreciate a pretty smile or a nice laugh more than I used to.

I realized recently that I passed that line where a “barely legal” model could conceivably by my child, at least chronologically. That said, it hasn’t made it creepy for me yet. In fact, I still find myself sneaking a peek out the kitchen window when the neighbors’ daughter has her cheerleader friends over. I think not having kids of my own makes it easier to not get creeped out. As soon as my own daughter is here (whenever that may be), I’m sure it’ll start to change. But then again, hot is hot, and if some teen hottie is doing her best to be sexy, I can’t imagine I’ll ever be totally immune. I’m just not that strong.

I that when I was 18 (or younger), I was looking for “barely legal” girls just because I was looking for women that were around my age. Now that I’m a few years older, I’m not really looking for “just-turned-18″ girls anymore, but rather women that are a few years or so older (college age). After I passed that “milestone” of 18, barely-legal girls just don’t really excite me like they used to. Sure, I’ll still take a look now and then, but the sheen has since worn off.

Side note: The picture, as always, is very nice. You collect just as many (if not more) anime/hentai pictures as I do! =)

I’m subscribed to your RSS feed, so I don’t get any of the pics. So, when I read your post, my first thought was “Yeah, I guess… But, really, 19, 20 -year-olds? Still *really* hot.” I’m 32. Then I came to your website, and saw that pic you posted… and the first thing I thought of was my just-over-1-daughter. Maybe it’s fatherhood, maybe it’s age… maybe it’s always been there but I’ve never noticed? After all, the image has no indication of age, and I’ve never been into child porn… but, for me, there was definitely a point where barely legally became a complete turn-off.

the way i see it, if they’re hot, they’re hot regardless of age. I think some prefer the barely legal because the girls are much more energetic and there’s the image of them being more of an insatiable nympho.

I’ve never been aroused by barely-legal porn. That has not changed in the least as I’ve aged. I’m a little over forty now, and tend to prefer erotica that is realistic (eg Comstock Films’ Matt and Khym, etc) to porn that features underage women who have hot pants. I think of barely-legal porn as a possible contributor to pedophilia and that’s what makes it far from hot for me.

farga - so what if your personal fantasy is doing’ someone younger than you? Will you always like barely legal porn, or will you want older and older models as you age?

Anon1 - That makes sense ^_^

JUnder - Haha!It’s nice to know that you won’t let down a young woman doing her best. ^_~

EvilD - hahaha!

Anon2 - So I’ve just turned you off 18 year olds as sex-symbols? oops!

HG - haha that’s definitely the image that they try to portray.

Anon3 - Whoa whoa whoa! We are NOT talking about underage women here, we are talking about women who are of age, but barely - as in barely LEGAL. I have to disagree with you on your barely legal porn = pedophiles connection.

shay - well it depends about the fantasy, once you manage to do your fantasy you will move to your next, as if you wish a menage a trois and after that you wish only to be with one girl again, it depends I dont stick to one fantasy, but answering your question: yes, if your only fantasy its only younger ones you will be after that kinda porn, after all there are all kind of porn.

Hi Shay. Great question.

I’m mid 40’s, and I’m definitely at the age of getting squeamish with barely legal porn. Oh, I’ve seen it. Enjoyed it. But yeah, it’s getting creepy. Give me some Inari Vachs or Sydnee Steele or other veteran performers. Hot.

It’s not just with porn. Take TV. I’m more likely to lust after Jami Gertz (Still Standing) than Amanda Bynes or Michelle Trachtenberg, let’s say.

I’m going to sidestep the question just a bit. I’ve always really liked the early Hustler “Barely Legal” series (say anything under the 20th one). And folks, it’s porn. I didn’t listen to the plot. I didn’t pay attention to the “Daddy’s out so I can fuck the plumber” bullshit dialogue. What I liked was that these were fresh faces with nice figures (both the women and the men) and the women had real breasts. And I’ve watched these with my lover(s) and they also appreciated not seeing the fake boobs, the fake fingernails, the bleached hair, the same old guys… Bad porn is actually counter productive. We sit there and make fun instead of getting worked up. So… Am I old enough to be this woman’s father? Red herring. I’m watching her having hot sex with someone else to excite me and possibly excite the woman I’m with. Give me the aesthetically pleasing option. Please.

Ok heres my take. When i was 15-30 (i’m 35 now) I desired a woman much older, for whatever unknown reasons. Now I understand the barly legal thing, it has to do with innocence for whatever reason. The best I can guess when I was young I wanted to be taught (and was on 4 different occasions) by women 10+ years my senior and now I guess I want to pass back the lessons. That can be the only reason because an 18 year old brings nothing to the table except enthusiasm

It’s been my experience such as it is that Barely Legal vids are barely tolerable. The “actresses” are less than acting such as that is… but, more importantly to me, their bodies are more like the bodies of twelve-year-old boys. I never did and don’t see the turn on of barely legal vids and as you mention I have a daughter who is 16. That point skeeves me out thinking about that as well.

I don’t know. I think for me the main thing is that as I grow older I’ve found older and older people attractive I haven’t really lost interest the kind of people I’ve been attracted to in the past.

I think “barely legal” as a concept is pretty sillly. But I also think it’s fine to be attracted to anyone 18 years or older.

If someone was *only* attracted to 18 year olds I’d probably have a conversation with them about what they were missing though.

I’m older, and that’s the way I prefer my lovers. I won’t say I could never be aroused by someone who’s “barely legal,” but I think only a few would have the experience and stamina to please me. Raw enthusiasm doesn’t make up for it!

gotta be so careful these days to get the age right. the younger ones of today look much older than the younger ones of my younger day. 18-21 ia a nice age.

I’ve never really been interested in the whole “barely-legal” stuff. Most of them were too “prissy, daddy’s girl” looking in most of the porn I saw that was dubbed as barely-legal.

I suppose the barely-legal appeals to a lot of men because of the whole “never been fucked” factor, or having some pouty-faced girl say how “it’s my first time”. But that has never appealed to me.

But I also hate the fakeness of some mainstream porn; bleached hair, fingernails so long they’re scary, fake breasts (pretty easy to tell they’re fake too) and fake everything else.

That’s mostly why I look at hentai now, at least it’s easier to find more natural looking stuff, though hentai is prone to exaggeration in the extreme.

I would also rather view porn with the females and males that looked more adult if I could help it. I can’t stand someone looking like a child if they could be a potential partner.

im new to this site and i think that a comment from a girl that is 20 would be a good contrast. i spend time on camsites and masterbate on cam as a way of meeting people with similar tastes and interests, and i often have people of all ages watching me and i have learnt deal with it. there is an element of unease when you find out the person watching is not “23″ or “25″ like they claim but “45″ or “55″ as they later confess to me. from the the other angle on this topic barely legal may have a fun aspect for the viewer, if the preformer is being lied to then hurt/disgust feelings can arise.

19 year old male here.
When I was 12 I was looking for porn with the youngest people possible, it was rather hard to find some. I have a young mother, and older people look disgusting, they remind me of my mother. How people think about innocence and experience in sex when looking at models I don’t understand, because you’re not having sex with them, you’re looking at them. All I want is a pretty face and a nice body. I think porn with young people should continue to proliferate and there’s nothing wrong with it, because young males wishing to look at naked young females which could be their peers can’t just come up to a classmate and say, ‘let me see you naked.’

I never really seeked it out per se and it’s not exactly a strong attraction for me. I’ve never really been turned off by it either. The only time when I’ve not found it particularly interesting is when the girl really lacks curves in the hips or bust, but this is technically a standard I tend to have for all porn.

Now the interesting thing is that at my age (I believe I’m the same age as you) my feelings about barely legal porn really hasn’t changed. However, my feelings about the upper threshold of what I find attractive age wise has changed and I can actually accept well taken care of women in their 4th decade as being attractive. I think going to the gym is the cause of this as you get girls in high school, college, grad-school, and quite well beyond at this particular gym.
