Why can I watch porn no problem, but get shy at scenes of affectional sex in movies?

Can philosophers help resolve the real problems that people have in their lives?

And did I tell you about our Hyundai Pony? We could never drive it to the mall. It was so horny, if it was parked anywhere near a Ford Mustang, it kept fornicating with it like a VolskWagen Rabbit.

Cars are only humans too.

I can't watch sexual displays of affection in movies.
how about couples porn aka 'women friendly' porn?
I must have watched a million of those. But I can't actually tell from here what you mean by "women-friendly". How can you tell if a porn piece is women-friendly? Because I can't believe that the only criteria to be "women-friendly" is couples making out. There must be other stuff that delineates a w-f movie. I mean, 99.9 percent of porn involves at least one man and at least one woman.

So... what's the clincher? The thing that makes porn women-friendly? Please explain.

well a lot of porn basically is lots old in-out

but there is some where the participants actually kiss and talk and laugh and generally seem to enjoy it - you get that in good girl girl porn as well

I am not a girl, by any stretch of imagination, but those are my favourite kinds. The close-up of genitals turns me off. I like to see skin. Not creases or rods. But they are extremely rare. I think the porn movie industry leaders figure people want to see skin and want to see genitals, and therefore the bodies of the actors get contorted into seemingly impossibly uncomfortable poses. I much rather watch a kissing, moaning couple who are doing it in missionary style, than the same or another couple doing kalysthethics, or calisthenics, in order to satisfy the inbecilic director or producer who figures this is what the masses want.

But you just gave me some insight. If I don't mind affection even in porn, why do I mind it in movies? Because of two possible things: either I find it unwarranted in movie scenes; it is not lead up to that point logically enough. Or else it is too true to reality, and an affectionate porno clip has no extra frills or baggage of emotion-driven drama.

If the latter case, then the emotion may be a distractant.

If the former, then I find it hard to suspend my disbelief, because it takes too much brainpower to build the shield that makes it possible to disregard the lack of suspension of disbelief.

IMO - after the internet became accessible to all - sex and nudity became redundant in movies and TV. I find those scenes annoying too!

Before the internet - they served a purpose! To get more viewers! Now: None.

I especially mind mindless sex. Like the movie starts with a married couple in bed, kissing extensively and touching. It's their private time, there is nothing illogical about it, but nothing surprising either.

I still like some scenes of sex or other expressions of physical tenderness and loving, where the PLOT directs you to see it. Like a girl and a boy fight some evil spirit, to stay on the very basic level, and they independently lose an arm each or something, and they hook up after defeating the monster. That'd make sense to show. But married people and gf-bf that are a given, without the plot bringing them together, I don't like.

There is that classic movie, a la Tennessee Williams, where a mother keeps her somewhat retarded daughter as a slave, and she berates her daily, and eventually she winds up with a superboy marrying her. That was good. I do
