Why Some People Like Porn Pictures More Than Porn Videos

Porn watching has gone on for almost as long as humanity has existed. Porn consumption has passed through many phases. Beginning with medieval times, people would often watch live shows of a sexual nature on stage and in theatres. Magazines and paper collections of hardcore sex took over in the 20th century. Fast forward to the present and you can watch all kinds of porn online with just a click of a button.

However, for all the appeal and ubiquity of porn videos and productions, some individuals prefer porn pictures to actual video shoots!

The reasons advanced by proponents of porn pictures are persuasive. For starters, some people take exception to the making of porn videos. They state that more often than not, these videos feature terrible or downright unflattering angles for most of the duration. You can imagine a man grunting in orgasmic ecstasy or a female whimpering in pain during anal sex.

Again, it may seem that male porn stars make porn videos unflattering. In many productions, male porn stars are often fixated on showing their athletic strength by mercilessly thrusting into their female partners making their actions go fast and turn blurry. Some of these videos also celebrate, even if uncannily, the use of brute force in sex. Other commentators believe that porn videos often contain brazen excesses in the performance that turn the act into an uninteresting fiasco.

With pictures, the picture is different (pun intended). The stills are meant to capture the best bits of the action for maximum arousal and engagement. A professionally taken photo will lay great emphasis on the beautiful details of the female body. In another context, a pornographic picture also gives the viewer a chance to fill in the blanks and create his or her fantasy with a useful visual aid.

You can let a picture ignite the power of your imagination in building preferred sexual fantasies and fetishes. This leeway is absent when watching a porn video as you view all scenes, with little or no room for surprises.

In the end, we must respect the fact that people have different tastes, wants and experiences, even in their choice of pornographic content.
