Do guys ACTUALLY watch porn together?

Asked by shadling21 (6457 points ) September 22nd, 2008

If so… why? Isn’t it awkward? Do they (you?) get aroused?

I suppose I should also ask: Do any females do the same?

They do…I’ve seen/heard of it many times! I always thought it was a bit strange, too. Girls will look at porn together, but in a kind of “you have got to see this” kind of way, not watch to the conclusion.

My friends and I used to do this in high school.
It was a mixed group of guys and girls.

We’d put it on mute and make up our own dialogue.
It was a hoot. I don’t think anyone got aroused.
The only time people were rolling around
was because they were laughing so hard.

I’ve watched porn with a guy before. It was kind of awkward. For me more than him. He just gave me a look like “So.. you wanna do it?” and I wasn’t interested in him at all.

@Allie: Totally depends on the guy, and your relationship with him. In other circumstances than you describe, it can be loads of fun!

When I watch porn, it’s just me and my left hand.

I don’t want anyone as a witness.

@aug – I think 2 Girls 1 Cup is a prime example of the whole “You gotta see this” thing.
@Nimis – Sounds like a fun party game!
@Allie – I’d need to know a person really well to not be weirded out in that situation.
@Jack – Aha, we’ve got a lefty.

I don’t. Never have. Never will.
Porn is for my time.

augustlan and shadling21: I think I’d met this guy maybe 3 or 4 times before. It was quite awkward. The weird thing is I still know him, we talk. Turns out he’s a pretty cool guy, but that experience was a bit weird at the time.

I typically watch alone, however in high school I have watched it with friends for comedic value.

I am a righty personally, but ever since I had stitches in my right hand when I was young I’ve been a lefty when it comes to that.

I assume this would be a “Do straight guys…....” question. Cuz well yeah gay guys can watch porn together, but I don’t think that is the same kind of question. So assuming this is a straight guy question, I’m going to say I don’t know, but it is a plot line to many a gay porn ;-)

I only watch home made porn not the pretending professionals… that is so fake ..

iwamoto's avatar

ah, amateur porn, too bad the quality is the same,

sometimes i let some buddies watch the best scenes, but really watch it together ? nah, i remember watching together with my girlfriend but it didn’t really work out, i mean, it’s like movies, we all have different tastes

Magnus's avatar

I can watch it with others, but I can’t enjoy it with others.

I guess I never had a problem with it, my memory was good enough that I could preserve the imagery until I was alone. I think maybe it’s a sign of the times that this question would even be asked. I grew up in the 80s, in a small town…there was no internet and I lived too far out of town to even get cable, much less pay per view. There were no purveyors of porn in my community, so in order to get porn you either had to send away for it, or buy a video when you were in a bigger town. So for me and my friends it was like if you actually got hold of a porno tape, yeah you’d get together and watch it, why not? You could comment on the action or the particular girls and what you’d do if anyone who even looked a tenth as good as that ever gave you the time of day. At some point you’d be alone in your bedroom, the bathroom or whatever, just you and your memories. Nowadays if you have the internet, you can find porn, no need to get excited about it. Back then though, you’d get a porn movie, you’d have a friend or two watch it with you, then when THEY aquired a porno they’d let you watch it.

Then of course there is a social aspect if it’s like a bachelor party or something of that nature. I mean, no one questions that guys go in groups to strip clubs, it’s really the same things…last bachelor party I hosted, the groom to be really had no interest in having a stranger shove her pierced labia in his face, but he thought it would be fun to watch a couple GGW DVDs. There can be a social element to it where you make comments and sort of regress to a caveman mentality.

I have, but not so much like hot pr0ns to fap to, but rather the wtfs of pr0n like “holy shit dude you have to see this weird fucking porno i found, they are rock climbing and then hanging off a cliff fucking in mid air suspended only by their rope” or that time i found the live action pr0n with ET that was just bizarre

iwamoto's avatar

ooh jackson that was an instant classic indeed :D sometimes i watch it with friends and recite it later, like that german TP (that’s right, 3), one guy says “oh, ich glaube da ist noch ein pl├Ątsen frei”, meaning “oh i think there’s a spot left there”, and everytime i say it the others just freak

Allie's avatar

Haha.. the rock climbing one. That was pretty impressive.

lefteh's avatar

Gah, that was amazing.

augustlan's avatar

rock climbing bliss…

ninjaxmarc's avatar

Alone, in the privacy of my home please.

generalspecific's avatar

haha.. my guy friends always do this and I think it’s so weird.
I’ve gone over to my friends house before when a bunch of people were over, and some weird porn was just playing on the computer. Everyone was just going about their own business while this anime girl grew a penis and began having sex with this other girl. I was just amazed.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@generalspecific was it bible black??? i mean uhhhhhh wow thats crazy i never knew such a thing existed =P

iwamoto's avatar

bible black, my first hentai i think, or was it immoral sisters ? ah, this brings back fond memories :)

generalspecific's avatar

haha, i have no clue. I just know it was on and weird as hell and the girl had purple underwear on.

iwamoto's avatar

blond half cut hair ? the other had black hair or bunny ears ? im almost certain it’s bible black, good call jackson

generalspecific's avatar

haha, i don’t have THAT good of a memory.. it was like a year ago

El_Cadejo's avatar

w00000t go me. I believe the first hentai i saw was La Blue Girl. Ever see the live action version of that? I picked it up at an anime convention because of sheer curiosity, it was like power rangers meets soft core pr0ns. Another porn i watched with friends just because it was so horrible it was funny.

Marie123's avatar

This leads me to another question…..

If watching porn together is weird…why is it okay to watch strippers live with a whole bunch of dudes?

Same thing…no?
