Is Amateur Porn Better Than Professional Porn?

We all enjoy watching porn… I mean, what’s not to like? You get to be inspired by the fun and kinky things that they are trying on the screen, and you can fantasize about which of the things you will do when you get to meet up with your partner later. You can even pretend, as your hand sits on your cock, that you are there and making the woman moan and groan like that yourself.

However, watching some porn videos can leave you feeling really frustrated. Okay, so we all know that the acting in porn is pretty poor as it is. How many times has the woman started to moan and you’ve gone “that’s fake” because she started as soon as the guy touched her?

Amateur porn seems to be taking the fake away from that, giving us the chance to watch real people having real sex. No longer do we see the typical slim waists, big fake boobs, and fat asses that porn stars have. No longer do we have to watch the guy with a cock so big it could be used as a weapon fucking the girl. We see actual people, which is hotter, right?

What is amateur porn?

If you are to think about it quite simply, amateur porn is basically porn that has been shot where the actors in it haven’t been paid for their time in the same way that professional porn stars are.

For many, they want to watch porn that doesn’t have that polished look. Amateur porn delivers that, as it is often shot on a lower-quality camera that is in a fixed position, usually a tripod, or help by one of the actors to get a close up of the action.

The lighting, you will notice, is usually not as bright, as they use natural light or any indoor lights they can get their hands on. This usually makes the picture quite dull, which adds to the “amateur” look of it all.

However, one of the big reasons that people enjoy amateur porn is the actors themselves. They aren’t paid to have sex on camera, instead they do it for fun. This means that each sound they make is more likely to be real, and their bodies aren’t perfect. Again, this makes it all seem more realistic.

Not to be confused…

Stephen Yagielowicz said on XBIZ back in 2008 that there are few areas of the adult industry that “have shown as much persistence, profitability and longevity as has the amateur porn marketplace”, showing that we absolutely love watching it. However, people tend to get amateur porn confused with reality porn, and the two are very different.

Reality porn is quite similar to amateur porn, except this time the actors have been paid. It is pretty much a professional shoot, but they are hoping to achieve that “amateur” look about it make people watch.

The amount of people watching reality porn is on the rise. Look at those watching fake cops, fake taxi, and bad tow truck porn! They love the “hidden camera” porn stuff because they enjoy seeing these “real” sexy scenarios taking place.

However, as with professional porn, you can often tell that it is fake. The amount of people who would offer a cop a blowjob to get out of a speeding ticket is, we hope, not that high… as it can actually get you in way more trouble. Best to stick to the true amateur porn.

Why are we so bored of professional porn?

Professional porn gives us a lot of variety of things to see, but we are so bored of it by now. You might have noticed that it seems to be the same stuff over and over again with very little change. We see the same positions and same things happening on screen, usually with the same actors.

They start in the same way: with bad acting. Someone usually gets caught masturbating or seduces someone into getting their clothes off. The camera will take a good long look at the naked body of the woman and then we get down to business.

The guy might give the girl a little bit of attention with his mouth on her pussy, but it looks fake, and ends within a minute. Then we get a very long blowjob where the woman tries to choke herself on his cock, and then the sex starts.

Sex in professional porn is dull. They will either fuck in missionary, doggy style, or the woman will go on top. The guy might grope blindly at her tits but he won’t go near her clit, and on the rare occasion he does, she will explode in orgasm immediately… or should we say “orgasm”… before it all ends with the money shot. It’s easy to see why we’re bored, isn’t it?

Amateur porn vs. professional porn

Okay, so a fair amount of guys still seem to enjoy professional porn. They like the polished look of it and the predictability, as it means they will get to see the things they enjoy most on the screen… but the fakeness of it means that women tend to prefer amateur.

The fact it is more realistic makes it a bigger turn on for us to watch, and while it can be harder to find an actress we like and want to keep watching, we have a huge variety of people to look at. It also seems to be a lot more focused on the pleasure of the woman, which is something I can honestly say I enjoy a lot!
