Is It Wrong To Enjoy Free Porn?

What is the best price for something? Many would argue that the answer is “free”. When you go out shopping and people are giving out free samples of things, you take them. So when we are choosing our adult entertainment, a lot of us are guilty at looking at the free porn sites.

Lately, people have been suggesting that we need to get rid of free porn… and not only to stop people from watching it who shouldn’t be. They believe that everyone should pay for their porn to support the industry, so here on the Escort Norway blog we ask: is it wrong to enjoy free porn?

Discovering a range of content

Porn seems to sit in that dark corner of the internet that a lot of people tend to avoid, or insist that they never visit, even though we know they do.

Free websites, like Pornhub, Redtube, and xHamster, give you the chance to discover a range of content without spending a penny. This is great for those times when you genuinely don’t know what you want to watch… or you simply want to try something new.

The sites let you watch a huge range of free porn, and if you discover a producer or a porn star that you like, you can then go looking for more content involving them. Sounds like a pretty good deal, right?

It costs money to make porn

When people look at porn, they tend to simply see two or more people fucking in front of a camera. They don’t get why people might want to get paid for something as enjoyable as sex, and they tend not to think about what goes on behind the camera.

Matthew Nolan, from the website Oh Joy Sex Toys, explains how many people get involved and just how costly a porn shoot can be: “there’s performers, directors, camera operators, editors, set rentals, equipment, taxes, websites, and tons of administrative stuff”.

He goes on to explain that “all of these people and resources cost real money and this isn’t even a comprehensive list!” Basically, there is a lot more that goes into making porn that we simply have not thought about when we are jerking off to the sexy people on the screen.

Paying for entertainment

Paying for porn seems like a great idea, but when there is free porn available, why should we fork out for it? Well, one of the simplest ways of thinking about it is that we pay for entertainment in all other areas of life.

If you are a video game fan, you’ll be more than happy spending money on a video game that will give you over three hours of entertainment. We will pay to go to the cinema and watch a movie with our partner. Many of us even buy books and magazines.

We are supporting the entertainment industry there… so why not porn too?

Is it wrong to enjoy free porn?

Personally, I think that using free porn is fine… as long as you are doing it the right way. Visiting those websites hosting the videos with the publishers permission is fine, as the views often lead to people seeking them out.

Downloading them from torrent websites, on the other hand, is not so good. If you have found an actress or a producer you like, why not simply pay for it and get it the proper way?

What do you think? Is it time that we started paying for porn, or is it perfectly acceptable to enjoy porn that is free? Let us know what you think in the comment box below.
