What Makes Porn Porn?
“I just want to know how far a show has to go to be a porno.”
I can only assume that this question is from a reader who is desperate to participate in The S Spot Porn Experiment (which will be wrapping up soon!) but isn’t sure what he can watch. ^_~
I guess what qualifies as porn can be a trickier question than one might expect. I would say that what makes a porn a porn is the presentation of sexually explicit material (boobs, genitalia, masturbation, sex, etc) with the intention of sexually arousing the audience. So, just because you get a hard-on watching “So You Think You Can Dance” doesn’t make it a porn, because the intention of the producers wasn’t to help you get off. Similarily, just because you really do watch Baby Blues for the plot doesn’t mean that it isn’t porn.
But, you can consider the majority of the hentai that I use on my site porn, because these images were drawn (and I post them) with the intention to turn people on.
I hope that answers your question.
What do you think readers? What makes a porn pornographic?
