Models in skin mags: what do you think of them?Page 2 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
I don't think of them at all, I just look at the pictures.

I've had the opportunity to meet a very famous, though somewhat past her prime porno star. She's a very well adjusted and nice woman, who I wouldn't mind dating at all.

The girls who pose for these things come in all different types.
Some are perfectly normal, some are total wackos, just like regular people.

Models in skin mags: what do you think of them?
Posted: 6/2/2008 10:41:28 AM
They're people doing a job. That's about it really.

Would I date someone who's done that?
Yes, I have before, and I would have no problems doing so again.

Now, there is a condition however. Because, I'm only human after all. ;)

Basically, if they want to keep working in the industry, I can accept that, as long as all they're doing is posing.
I know it's "just a job"... but to me, making love to someone, is something sacred to a relationship. And while I don't care what they've done in the past... while they're with me, I wouldn't want them sleeping with anyone else. I know it wouldn't be anything serious to them, the men they might be with are just part of the job... but still... it's part of the ethics of the thing.

And the ladies who I've been invovled with from that industry respected that.
One only did modelling, and that wasn't a problem.
Another willing stopped doing sexual porn, and just did poses and spreads while we were together. Even though that was a huge paycut for her. But she respected me enough, and loved me enough to do so. And I loved her all the more for it.

Would I think such women are untrustworthy? Of course not.
Not unless they prove themselves to be so.

I know some men would object to their woman being in porn. They wouldn't be able to accept the idea of other men "enjoying" their woman in such a way.
But, as said, it's just a job. The woman looks stunning, has a great body... and is taking full advantage of that.

The job she does doesn't change who she is.
If she's faithful and respectful... then that's what matters to me.

In fact, I recently got the chance to meet a model who has been doing nudes for about 10 years. A wonderful Asian woman. And I've been "enjoying" her work for years myself... and now that I've gotten to know her personally... I'm all the more enraptured by her. Because she truly is a remarkable woman, inside and out.

I try not to think about who the person is when I watch porn. If I do, then I start thinking about what kind of woman would you have to be to subject yourself to such abusive objectification. it's a generalization I know, but I can't help but feel a lot of those models have low-self esteem, or not all there and like to be used/manipulated.

Sometimes I follow that train of thought and it kills the mood completely for me. It's part of the reason why I stick to erotic short stories. I know, I'm a weirdo, but I actually like sexy stories than watching some bimbo with a trashy pelvic tattoo and a clitoral piercing getting pounded

Yes, the ethics of the situation can vary greatly depending on the viewpoint.

Watching is fine... because they're with someone else. I have no problems watching two people going at it. That's fine with me.
Because, in the end, it has little to do with me. It's my enjoying something sexual someone else is doing.

But I wouldn't want to see MY lady with another man. It just wouldn't be right to me. No more than I assume you would want to see your man with another woman.

And yes, as far as I'm concerned, it is about ethics.
If you're with someone, then you should be with them alone. Simple as that.
If I see porn of two people having sex... then that's just fine... I don't know anything about those involved, and really, I don't care to. As someone else said, I'm not going to sit there thinking about them, because, that's changing it from simple sexual arousal, to considerations of personality, feelings, etc... porn is detached and unemotional.
Or at least, it should be.

Now, if the people invovled had someone in their life, and they're still sleeping with other people... I might not approve... but that's not my problem. They can deal with their relationships however they choose.

For MY relationship though, I wouldn't be comfortable with such happening.
I wouldn't sleep around on my lady, and I expect the same respect. Simple as that.


Does he enjoy seeing this stuff? Yet he didn't think it was 'right' for someone to do that, because it's unethical.

As I said... it's not that I thought that such things were unenthical. Just that they weren't ethical to me as far as someone in relationship doing them.
If a woman won't give up having sex with others for money, then that's her choice. I will respect it, it simply means that there's no chance of a relationship there.

I came up with the question when I watched a show where a man actually met the woman he'd lusted for in his magazine. He did not want anything to do with her. Why? Did he think she was cheap and unworthy of his respect?
.. or was it that, since there she was in person, he was confronted by his own interest in the material where she posed, turning him on? She couldn't turn him on as an actual human being?


What kind of show was this? It sounds like some ridiculous, B-rate movie one finds on Lifetime: Television for Women.

i'm sure we have all seen the show on E where six pasty silicone playboy centerfolds follow hugh hefner around like little lost puppy dogs (or maybe kitty cats -meeeeeeeeow) -i don't think there are very many guys who would turn down an invite to the hefner mansion for a pajama party. however when it's all said and done, i think the girl who really gets him is the girl next door type. -a grown version of the first one in a ponytail who threw rocks at him or stole a kiss when he wasn't lookin

Because if I met that girl I would know what she has done and not want to go that route. There are plenty of great girls out there (so I'm told anyway) so why even waste my time?

And I haev never shelled a dime on the stuff! :)

My 2 cents from a female perspect (I just had to, lol)......they are not real women. They are surgically enhanced and altered, the pics are airbrushed and cause men to have unrealistic expectations of their wives and girlfriends. Men compare models in skin mags to their own wives and girfriends thus putting pressure on them to look like the skin mag bimbos. This chickie will always be herself. Period. I figure if a guy doesn't like it he needs to hit the road


I just had to respond to this before I finished reading the rest of the thread...

I don't know where you concocted this piece of nonsense, but if you actually had the first inkling of a clue into the male mind, you would know, without a shadow of a doubt, that the statement that you wrote is completely and utterly false.

Being a guy, I have not met one other guy in my lifetime that has looked at porn (and off the top of my head, i don't remember any guy i've known that DIDN'T look at porn) and actually had it effect the "expectations" they had from the women around them. Men will always be fascinated with pornography and the female body, flawless or not, but we never have, and never will, take a look at a magazine, and expect every woman to live up to that standard of physical flawlessness. We are not that cruel, and we are not that stupid.

If you want to take a moment to blame anybody, concerning your low self esteem and sh1tty self-image, blame your mother, blame your sisters, blame your female friends. WOMEN are the reason that women feel inferior, NOT men.

What gets me is how so many women claim that a beautiful woman in a magazine is not "real"...they are real.I have seen them up close and they are very real...the opposite of them is also all too real.


I agree totally with this post. The women in mags are "done up" with make up and photo editor. But guess what so are the guys in those mags too. Let me give you an example. My family has been around and we are fortunate enough to meet up with some famous people. My sister met a famous rock band from the 80's in the 80's (not now). Well on "tv" and the rock mags the lead singer was "dreamy" and "hot" she meet him in person and he was the ugliest guy she ever meet and I'm not taking about attitude but looks. She said that she about died when she saw him. She couldn't believe that they could pull that off. That was then in the 80's before computers were mainstream like they are today. And the technology was far what it is today. So might I ask what is the difference?

Best of luck to everyone

Not getting your thoughts; men like models because they are good looking and sexy. Not getting your deep thoughts because its not deep. They look at porn because it arouses them and the women turn them on.

I think 80-90% are way better looking than any women I ever see when out and about.

Whoa! What site are you looking at? Most of the girls there look like shit. Either that or the girls in my city are gorgeous.

to the OP, they are often air brushed to remove imperfections and to honest are about as appealing as barby dolls are to kids

porn actors are simply actors doing different stuff, the role they have in the movie is often nothing to do with their real life

guess if I bought porn mags to stimulate things, then would not really think all too much about the person, they are just pictures :)

LMAO, so sluts in skin rags who are fake after having tons of surgeries and been overly airbrushed are 80 to 90% better looking than any women out and about? If you believe those tramps are better looking (those chicks ARE NOT real women) then you have no concept of what a real woman is. You've clearly been spending too much time looking at whores in skin mags. You need to get out more.


Well, that is actually not what he said.

He said: "I think 80-90% are way better looking than any women I ever see when out and about." He is talking about his own personal experience where ever he lives, I assume.

Really smart people get jobs where they can use their 'smarts' to make money.
Really strong people get jobs where they can use their strength to make money.
Really skilled people get jobs where they can use their skill to make money.
Really beautiful people get jobs where they can use their beauty to make money.
Really sexy people get jobs where they can use their sexiness to make money.
Exactly what's the difference? Each person uses the abilities and qualities that they have to make a living. Now, since I really like beautiful, sexy women, why would I have any problem with that? Hundreds of millions of men the world over that have no female partner available get at least some happiness from looking at those actors and models in 'p0rn'. Only the puritanical, who hate the thought of anyone having enjoyment without pain or punishment of some kind to go with it, would have any problem with that.

How would you know that these things apply to all or most magazine models? I know a few women who did some modeling as a part time job to earn some extra money. They were just as attractive in person as they were in their pictures. They were also "real" women with great personalities.

I know they are real. I mean why aren't they. Oh photo editing, let's see "anyone" can do this now. With new computers and technology. Oh they've had plastic surgery. Well I know a girl that her mom paid for her "new boobs" on her 18th b-day. She is the most attractive girl I know where I work. She could model. She did it for her self not because of a man told her to or to make it big in modeling. But because she wanted to. And trust me she is far from fake.

Best of luck to everyone

Models in skin mags are .,..............models in skin mags !!!!!

Look we think about sex more than the next 3 most important things (food,sleep,beer)
Its who we are, what we do, why we are here.
Skin mags make thinking about it that little bit easier, thats about it
Im sure most skin models are married with kids, fair play to them for having a body worth sharing
I THANK THEM !

Imagine for a moment that you lust over some actor... he always plays a certain kind of character. Then you meet him... and he's well him. He's not the person that you saw him as. Same thing.


..they are not real women. They are surgically enhanced and altered, the pics are airbrushed


Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I for one find the surgical enhancements and the photoshopping to be a turn off or just boring. That is not unusual as far as I know. Some Playboy images might as well be paintings or cartoons as the case may be. That said, there is much that isn't more than simple makeup and good photography.


cause men to have unrealistic expectations of their wives and girlfriends.


Either you are saying men are so dumb they don't know when images are extensively altered or that large numbers of women can't look great with well done makeup and good photography. Not exactly sure who should feel insulted here. Maybe both :)

One could also equally say that the men in movies, TV, magazines and other media give women unrealistic expectations of the men in their lives. Some women have a problem with men looking at boobie pictures and the like (or porn) because they feel men take it the same way they do. That since they create expectations in their lives from the media they feel men do as well. That may be true for some men, but I hardly think it the majority.

As far as having an opinion of the actual people behind the images... well there are people who do certain things for a living that I couldn't have in my life. A porn actress is one of those. Now a woman who just posed naked or something that just showed off the female form... I don't think that would bother me. Everyone has their own line.

Too easily answered Classified

It's not JUST skin models either. Regular guys think, rightly or wrongly, that all types of glamour girls are absoloute beeches with king sized attitude problems.

And the greatest turn off for the guys, isn't actually an ugly girl. It's an attitude problem.

1missblueeyes you've got to be kidding. I mean is there a woman over 18 that has their true hair color? How many women dye their hair for a "fake" color that isnt theirs, or gets botox injections, or gets liposuction. When does it end? Women's looks are all fake to a point.

I think its jealousy. Many women have no problem looking at hot guys in magazines or in movies but when guys do it these women are fake. lol; you can't have it both ways.

Do some men look down on the porn star as immoral? If so, do those men view themselves as immoral for enjoying the porn?


This is a great question. I do look down at porn stars. I think its a sleazy lifestyle. The U.S. has become very sleazy and they are almost looked up to by some.

I dont enjoy porn. I get off on the real thing. I never got how looking at a fake person on the tv is that incredibly hot. I dont buy porn videos or magazines; never have; never will.

Do I like looking at pretty girls? sure; do I love porn? no; I never wanted a women with a lot of hands on her and I think its kind of sick.

On a slightly similar subject I got to have a look at the original Marilyn Monroe 'Red Velvet' 8x10 chromes, the ones that were made into the now famous calendar. The soles of her feet were black, she had veins all over the place and was a bit more chubby than you see in the very retouched image that appears in your mind.


So are the women in porn 'real'? well yes, they just happen to entertain in a way that most of us do behind closed doors.


As for looking down on them...well, I'm sure they could find a conventional job if they wanted but most don't because they want/need the money .....and since no-one has ever even asked me I can't imagine I would do it myself ;-)

No I don't see it as immoral. And I do not see myself as immoral for enjoying it.

Do women see themselves as being immoral for lusting over a hollywood hunk or rock star, country star, soap opera actor, etc?

Best of luck to everyone
