14 Unrealistic Things That Happen In Every Gay Or Lesbian Porno

What's with the long fingernails and no lube?

Posted on

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community what things happen in every gay porno that really infuriate them. It's fair to say they had some strong opinions...

5. The wrong audience.

CBS Films

"Lesbians in porn are just so unrealistic. The way they're portrayed and dressed, it's so obviously aimed at men and men only, it's so frustrating."

—Anonymous

6. The apparently unaware third party.

"I hate the videos where guys are going at it in a communal area and then someone else walks in (usually a girlfriend or the mum) and they have a full on conversation while getting plowed/blown/rimmed and the other party doesn't notice that their significant other/son is having sex right in front of them, actually bobbing up and down or rocking back and forth from the respective actions."

–Ricardo, Facebook

8. The need for something phallic.

Netflix

"The way that lesbian porn almost always involves toys. Sure, sometimes women who have sex with women enjoy sex toys, but implying that women need something phallic for a satisfying experience is a major eye roll."

–Anna, Facebook

9. The male gaze and unrealistic expectations.

Netflix

"The majority of lesbian porn is made for the male gaze, making it cringe-worthy and unrealistic. I mean those long ass fingernails? *wince* As for gay porn, well the ones that show men going at it with no lube or prep whatsoever are presenting a really unrealistic portrayal of how anal sex works. You cannot just go at it, you need prep and you definitely need lube."

10. The racial stereotypes.

VH1

"The stereotypical roles reserved for black guys – thug, convict, gangster. Also, black guys don't always have to be the top in interracial settings."

–Taopheeq, Facebook

11. The OTT orgasm.

WWE

"In reality, lesbians don't particularly go for the typical straight people positions, like doggy style. And when it comes to porn in general, either learn how to fake moan realistically or please be quiet."

13. The award nomination snubs.

HBO

"The fact that performers of colour are generally snubbed at award events. I have a friend in the adult industry, and he's a very skilled latino bottom performer, but he consistently gets looked over for nominations in categories where every other popular white guy is included."

–Jordan, Facebook

14. The penis lengthening ads.

E4

"Lesbian porn in its entirety. It always looks like it's been written/directed by someone who isn't a woman that's experienced sex with a woman. The penis lengthening ads surrounding the video are a pretty solid indicator that it's not actually intended for women to watch. Ugh."
