Erotism X Porn

There’s a very thin line between erotism and porn.

To me erotism is instigating, suggestive and allusive, and due to of all of that, very interesting.

In some of the erotic books I’ve read, like some tales of Marquis de Sade and Lolita from Nabokov, everything is very erotic and intense, and there isn’t a single dirty word. Though the narrative is rich in details. I like it that way.

But I don’t like explicit porn. It turns me off. That’s how I am.

I think porn is mostly produced for pleasing men that seem to be most of its public.

I also think knowing it helps to understand men a bit better. No one can tell what is right or wrong about other people’s  sexuality. No one can set a limit.

I’m usually very open minded to understanding and respecting other people’s opinions even when I totally disagree with them or dislike their preferences. But sometimes that’s not enough to avoid some conflicts.

That’s why I get so upset when somebody becomes judgemental with me.

I was talking to a guy I met recently, circumstances don’t matter now, and he changed the subject to hardcore porn stuff. I told him I don’t appreciate that and I was trying to explain in a friendly way that I like watching and reading erotic material but explicit porn is not what turns me on. Before I could explain myself he said I was acting hypocritically about that because either implicit or explicit stuff in the end they all refer to the same things.

That’s a shame because I was a bit into him and I think it’s okay if I prefer erotism and he prefers porn. The problem and also a really turn off for me is that he doesn’t think the same way.

I think it’s okay if he prefers women who are into explicit porn. And there’s nothing wrong with me if I’m not one of them and I must not get into it if I dislike.

Well, c’est la vie.

P.S.: This blog has never had so many hits in a day [and it’s not its pretension]. All due to the search of the tag “porn”. Interesting, huh?  😉  I’m sorry for disappointing the expectations.

    Hey Mimulus,

    My mom also used to say “Erotic is what you do, porn is what your neighbor does”.

    I believe you’d agree with her, wouldn’t you?

    Cheers

  2. mimulus Said:

    I sure disagree with her, my dear. I refer only to material: books, movies, photos. I’m not referring to life.

  3. Piraboy Said:

    Well, well, well…

    Life is in books, movies, photos.

    I keep my point of view 🙂

    Bye

  4. mimulus Said:

    Well, my dear,
    I didn’t expect you to agree with me, just to understand me.
    Anyway, the problem didn’t happen with you.

    Kisses
