(As with all my posts about porn, this is not for you really young-uns. This site is for 14+ and this post is probably for older than that. If you’ve never seen porn and don’t want to learn more about it then do please (in the nicest possible way) go away!)
In this series of posts I’m going through some of the main ‘categories’ in porn so you don’t have to, or if you’re confused about what you’ve already seen. I’ll be providing information, general thoughts, discussion points and generally taking all the fun out of everything. (Remember the legal age to watch porn is 18 in UK).
Some porn features actual couples who have sex with each other on camera. Sometimes they are both professional porn performers, or sometimes it’s one porn performer doing it with their civilian partner. Some porn performers only have sex for the cameras with their partners. Much amateur porn features people who are couples who are just making their own sex tape.
‘Couple’ porn may also refer to porn which is made for couples. Some couples do watch porn – as a way of fulfilling fantasies, or exploring new ideas, the feeling of having sex with other people nearby, or just because they find it hot. However as so much porn is so designed to be watched by straight (and cis) men that it often a turn off for anyone who isn’t. People who make porn for couples try to counter-act this by:
- having the performers look at each other and not at the camera
- focussing the camera on both (or everyone) rather than on just one person (in straight porn the focus is on the woman)
- making the sex seem more intimate and real by featuring kissing, talking, smiling, giggling and some gentle as well as hard sex
This doesn’t mean that all couples find this sexy of course.
In virtually all porn with penises in, the scene ends when the penis(es) ejaculates. Cumshots are so common that I really don’t know why it has a separate category.
Ejaculation has to be very visual and this is a very important part of most porn. I would only be guessing as to why this is, but I suppose orgasms are very exciting to experience in sex and the only way to represent them in porn is visually and aurally – this means visual cumshots and very very loud screaming and moaning from women (which lots of young people confuse with screaming in pain).
So the cumshot has to be seen – this mean that it usually happens on someone (face, body), which the person being ejaculated on seems to like a lot. Occasionally it happens in someone, but even then it is shown on camera (this is called a creampie if ejaculation is inside someone’s vagina or anus).
Just like male porn actors have much bigger than average penises (and use far too much hair gel) they also happen to cum lots. Being able to cum a lot (and having a good aim) are the kind of things that a potential porn actor has to put on their CV. So if you don’t seem to cum like they do in films, try not to worry, lots of people don’t.
As with all things in porn, just because it’s popular on Planet Porn doesn’t mean it’s popular on Planet Earth. Some people like being ejaculated on some don’t. Some people like ejaculating over people, some don’t. Some think cumshots and orgasms are a big deal, some don’t.
Think about these questions and cumshots.
Do people have to have ejaculation and orgasms to have enjoyable sex?
Does sex always end when the guy ejaculates?
If porn was made by women for women, would it feature cumshots?
Are there other sexy ways that porn could make orgasms obvious?
It’d be great to hear from you below (in the comments).
