Porn Sex Vs. Real Sex

***Warning, this video and blog post might not be suitable for all people.  Lots of sex talk down there.***





The video above was published on YouTube by kbcreativelab with this note: 

"If you've ever watched porn, and if you've ever had sex, you know that the two are very different. But what are the differences, specifically? Whet your appetite and watch the video!"

It's a hilarious video, but I think they need to rename it "Professionally Produced Porn Sex Vs. Real Sex" because nowadays amateur porn is big.

I've written before about how surprised I was to find that, for me, looking at porn with my husband helped me understand that beautiful bodies come in all shapes and sizes and that I should not feel ashamed of my body.  In the same way giving up reading fashion magazines and tabloids has helped me stop trying to live up to some unattainable beauty standard, looking at porn has helped me realize that the fact that my abdominals don't show under my layer of belly fat does not make my body an abomination.

But then again, my husband and I look at self-published amateur porn.  I've tried to watch professionally made porno videos with my husband but I've never found one I like.  It's too much for me.  In the same way I prefer biopics and documentaries over fantasy films, I prefer self-published amateur porn over professional porn.  

The video above explains why in a funny, light-hearted way: because it's so ridiculously unrealistic.
