how to choose porn

With over 11,000 porn films released each year in North America, it's hard to know how to choose porn. While there are very few porn films you'll ever watch from start to finish, there are many titles that offer moments of lusty delight, and the trick is finding out what works (and doesn't work) for you.

Here are some things to consider when choosing porn:
  • Do you want porn with storyline?
  • How explicit do you like your porn?
  • Are you looking for big budget porn, indie, or alt porn?
  • What sort of sex do you want in your porn?
  • Porn from what decade?
  • Are you looking for adult educational films or the dirty stuff?
  • Are you looking for porn directed by women?

storyline or no-storyline? that is the question

  • Some people find plot, characterization, and acting enhances the porn experience. Keep in mind that with very few exceptions (Paul Thomas films, and Classic porn are two examples) porn actors can't act very well, so you need a sense of humour when browsing our Sex and Storyline porn section.
  • If you can't stand the acting, and fast forward through any and all dialogue, you might want to skip the storyline and go straight to the plot-less features from our Hardcore Sex section, which do the fast forwarding for you.

How hard do you like your hardcore?

How hard do you like your hardcore? While most porn looks the same on the outside, on the inside there is a surprising variety of explicitness. Think about how raunchy you want to go with your porn viewing.

Do you like Hollywood blockbusters, or independent films?

Thinking about what kinds of non-porn movies you like can actually help you find porn that works for you. As a general rule, the bigger budget films tend not to be the raunchiest. But there are big exceptions to that rule, including the bestselling Fashionistas and Catherine. If the Hollywood thing is a turn off, check out our selection of Indie Porn, which tend to be made with smaller budgets but creative minds.

Straight porn, gay porn, lesbian porn, bi porn? Who's doing who?

One of the greatest misconceptions is that people only watch the kind of porn that represents the sex they have. After eight years of helping people choose porn we can promise you this isn't the case. Straight women watch gay porn, straight men watch lesbian porn, gay couples watch straight porn, everyone watches bi porn (now and then). Don't be shy to experiment. Watching it doesn't mean you'll end up doing it, but the fantasy material can be surprising. Peruse our selection of gay, lesbian, bi, queer and trans porn.

Modern versus Classics

If you're tired of hearing about the 'good old days' you're not alone. There's plenty of amazing porn being made right now, in the twenty-first century. But we still respect our elders, and truth be told, there was some amazing porn made back in the day. From Debbie Does Dallas to Too Naughty to Say No and Aunt Peg, the golden age offered less plastic surgery, real bodies (with actual body hair) and a sense of fun that is definitely lacking in many porn films today. Check out our complete selection of Classic porn.

Educational or Erotic?

This may seem obvious, but you may want to consider what educational videos have to offer. While they aren't produced with the idea of titillating, many still offer genuine sexual situations, and you get to learn something along the way. There are also those cross over titles, like the Expert Guide series, which manage to both educate and arouse.

Porn by Women

One of the most common questions we get is whether we have porn made by women. Our first word of caution is that not all women direct porn the same way. Some of our women directors (like Belladonna) are raunchier than the raunchiest men. Other directors, like the groundbreaking Candida Royalle, set out to produce porn that will appeal to women who are looking for an alternative to the all-anal-all-the-time mindset that can dominate so much of the porn world (not that there's anything wrong with that!)
