The porn we look for

I am suspicious of this “really want” stuff. It is well known that many women have rape fantasies without “really wanting” to be raped. Some of the men who fantasize about boys or sheep while having sex with women really want boys or sheep, and some really want to have sex with women while fantasizing about boys or sheep. It’s always more complicated.

Thanx to Metafilter

I found the link via the always-interesting Tyler Cowen, who commented, "Maybe you search for what you are curious about because you don’t have it at the margin, rather than it being your core desire."

Meh, when people look at porn, often enough it's for nothing more than mildly-prurient curiosity, and/or the lulz. I've looked at a ton of porn online, and none of it has been what I would consider sexually stimulating - some of it is beautiful and evocative, like the elf-slash on Ansereg but a whole lot more is squicky and hilarious, like the stuff on weepingcock.

Does ANYBODY "really want" Hogwarts Castle and the giant squid? Does anybody really fantasize about that while having actual sex with another human? I suppose it's possible, because humans are weird - I found a whole site once, of beautifully-rendered erotic drawings of dragons having sex with fancy cars. There is furniture porn. There is Smurf slash. Rule 34 for the Win!
