Thank you Khan and Rick and to everyone who replied in support.

I'm sorry if anyone was offended by this thread but it's not easy being one of the very few gay users on the site and to see that kind of username every time you log on to the site.

EverNight, I appreciate your point of view, but ultimately this is supposed to be a safe site where everyone who is into porn can feel welcome and discuss something that yes, many in society would object to - but that's entirely my point.

People who don't like porn wouldn't come here - but for people who do, it's a place where like-minded people can come and discuss something that may be taboo in society and isn't easy to discuss in day to day life.

I think everyone should be welcome here to do that. The site allows gay listings, and there's been discussions before on how few women and gay users there are on the site - this kind of thing goes part of the way to answer why.

As for censorship - this site already does that - it doesn't allow links to certain types of site for example - many users who have tried to link to sites which don't meet the sites policy have found their links deleted. So the site already sets its own community standards about what they will and will not allow - I think that's pretty standard on most web forums.

On a site which is concerned with sexuality, I do think it's sensible to have a policy which doesn't allow users to pick usernames which criticize a sexual orientation which is well-represented on this site.

I'm not gong to go on some neo-Nazi web forum and complain about a username like that - I'd expect it, and I wouldn't go on that kind of site.

However, this isn't a neo-Nazi site. It's a site which is about discussing pornography, so whilst nobody would take someone seriously for complaining about someone using a sexual or vulgar username on a porn discussion site, it seems fair to take issue with using a username which is abusive to people with a certain sexuality.

Would we allow a username like "PornIsEvil" or "PornLoversAreSinners"? No, because it's against the whole ethos of the site. People who want to campaign again porn, as is their right, can create their own web-forums to do so and to discuss how wrong porn is.

If I go on a discussion site about kittens, would they let me use the same username I use here? Probably not - and of course I wouldn't use that username there. I don't use this username on any other site - it's only appropriate for this site. I don't see any issue with that.

This cartoon deals with the issue of freedom of speech on the internet well - and bear in mine this user hasn't been banned, nor have I asked for them to be banned - I just don't want them to use a username which is like a slap in face to gay users when they see it.

NoFagsHere indeed... I'm off!

I'm sick of being on a site which allows a user to use the name "NoFagsHere".

I have discussed this with the site management/admins before and I thought I'd could cope with it, but nope, I just don't want to come onto a site when the first thing I see after some time away is "NoFagsHere".

So - there'll be one less fag here, because I've had it.

Bye all - thanks to everyone who has been kind and welcoming to me, but I just don't feel comfortable on this site anymore. Edited by Staff on Jul 12, 2014, 09:47am

Funnily enough just managed to join another site which uses CCBill, which is good - but I guess they'll be implementing it soon enough.

Damnit! Now can't pay for porn with UK debit card!!

Any other British users come up against this problem?

I tried to join a porn site today and it repeatedly declined my card.

This happens quite often as because the processors are usually overseas and charging in US dollars, it looks like a suspicious transaction and the bank blocks it.

Usually though I get a call almost immediately from the bank, go through the security checks, confirm it was genuine and then they give me the go ahead to try again.

This time - no call. So I called them myself and they said there was no record of the request even going through and they hadn't declined my payment!

I e-mailed Verotel and they said it's some new UK law - because debit cards are issued to under-18, they will now be rejected for porn purchases!

Apparently I now need a credit card!

I am so mad - I don't want a credit card - I've never needed or wanted one, but if I want to go on buying porn it looks like I'll have no choice. A pre-pay card is no good as they're debits too and often aimed at under-18s.

Any other British users had this issue?

Hey guys

Took a break from PU for a few months - disabled my account and wasn't expecting to come back... had an issue with the site which I won't go into here but which has been resolved to my satisfaction.

Anyway I missed you guys too much and just wanted to say hi x

I will never understand the big problem people have with condoms in porn.

If you want porn to have a future, I think it's time for condoms in all porn.

I LOVE real CFNM because the guys are the focus and end up naked, but the women stay clothed. Real CFNM sites, where the women remain clothed throughout, seem popular with gay men from what I've read on their forums.

I like to see straight models used for pleasure with the focus on the man - the fact it is clothed women using them "proves" they are straight and adds an extra frisson for me. I get to see men used as sex objects with no distraction of naked women.

Hard to explain but I love it - though many CFNM sites are nothing of the kind as the women end up naked and it's just standard porn then with a slightly different build up!

Can I ask a further question here please fellow porno lovers?

I've decided to use my external drives purely to store porn on, and not worry about system backups.

I store my porn pretty simply just using folders in Windows 7 - each porn studio/website has its own folder and I order it in date of download - I always download the oldest stuff first.

So if I transfer, say, my CMNM.net porn folder onto my hard drive, is there a way that I can later transfer any new files I put in that folder on my laptop onto my external drive without duplicating things?

So for example, let's say as of today (7/23/13) I have fifty films in my CMNM.net folder. In three months time I rejoin CMNM.net and download three months worth of new stuff. I now have seventy files in my CMNM.net folder including the twenty new downloads, but on my external drive I still just have the fifty I had on 7/23/13. Is there a way of having my hard drive download just the new files it doesn't have already without me having to do it manually? Could it detect what files it already has in that folder and just download what it can see it doesn't already have?

No site which wants my business can charge one cent for previews. Previews are just that, I don't pay to see previews of regular movies and TV shows. They are supposed to be the bait which gets me to join a site, and they often do.

Self-defeating if you ask me... I won't do business with any site that does this and I urge others not too as well - that will soon finish off this stupid idea and ensue it doesn't become too widespread.

We porn consumers have a lot of power and it's time we used it - I am sick of being treated as anything less than a paying customer. In no other industry do people tolerate such lousy service and we shouldn't either.

Porn customers are entitled to respect, but we'll only get it if we demand it!

Not really of interest to me personally but as I enjoy CFNM (Clothed female, naked male) and CMNM (clothed male, naked male) sites I wondered if there were CMNF (clothed male, naked female) and CFNF (I think we all get the idea by now!) sites... and sure enough there are but you don't seem to list them...

Of course I'm still curious which actual porno was shown in the episode "The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers," which Kyle's dad claims "is the single most vile, most twisted piece of porn ever made." The clip is clearly a shot of Evan Stone, but beyond that it is any expert's guess.

OK who can answer THIS one?

I need to know!

In the episode "Probably" in "South Park", Saddam Hussain and Satan are watching gay porn and you see a clip of an actual gay porno movie.

It looks so hot but all my attempts to find out which movie it was has been fruitless!

Anybody know?

If even tried to find out on the South Park forum but no dice.

Anyone know how could I could contact the creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker to find out?! Surely they'd tell me?!

Thank you for that. I'd be happy to pay a 10 initial charge as with the Spanish bank charging me 1.50 per transaction at the moment I'd start saving after a few subscriptions.

I suppose I always wondered if these cards worked OK for such subscriptions, as they're usually in dollars or euros... do I have to get a version designed for travel and use of any currencies? Do they make any extra charges like the bank does?

I always wondered if some porn sites wouldn't take them as they wouldn't be able to rebill you on them as easily as a credit or debit card...

It sounds quite simple - can I just buy one at Phones4U and then top it up as and when?

To be honest it could be useful generally as I try to use PayPal as much as I can for my regular net shopping and more and more vendors take it - so I could use the prepaid card for my porn and any other purchases where they don't take PayPal and then I'd never have to enter my main debit card details on the web again, which would be great as I've twice had internet fraud on my account.

Yup exactly the same here - same bank debit card.

I don't have a credit card and I don't want one.

I did look into pre-loaded debit cards but I found them very complicated and they have their own charges - also had to decide which ones were genuine as they all seemed quite unknown companies to me.

Great idea for a thread!

As you'll see, I have very unusual tastes in men, as I'd like to see...

John Boehner (let's face it his last name sounds close enough to "Boner" so he's halfway there already!)

Billy Gardell from "Mike and Molly" - so much man to love!

Billie-Joe Armstrong from Green Day - had a crush on him since I was a teen and he "came out" as bisexual some years ago too!

Matt LeBlanc from "Friends" and "Joey".

and finally

Ed O'Neill from "Married With Children".

That would be one hot group scene!

A useful idea, but I was put off as I'm sure I read somewhere that if you send credit card details over a VPN, a unscrupulous VPN operator can intercept them, so I'd be worried about security.

Hi Cap'n - yes I'm afraid it seems to be the latest new charge banks and credit card companies are introducing!

I've noticed them appearing on my bank statements lately on my debit card.

They're not super-high but they do add up.

I wish more sites would offer the option to pay in local currency, it would make it so much easier.

Another problem I have is since I had fraud on my account, my bank is super-sensitive to any suspicious transactions. That's great of course but it also means when joining a porno site, I'm often paying in dollars or euros and the payment is usually processed off-shore, which looks suspicious to the bank.

So the payment is usually declined and I have to go through a security call from my bank to confirm it was genuine and then do it all again.

I appreciate the security but I wish there was a way to do the security procedure first to let them know I was about to do it - at least that way I'd only have to go through the payment process once.

It won't stop me buying porn but it is an added expense to buying it and something porn studios should bear in mind - even British ones which will ultimately have to convert the dollars into pounds at their own expense usually only accept dollars. It means they pay more and so do their customers.

I guess the payment processes don't make it easy to accept anything other than dollars.

Still anything that adds to my overall porno bill means I will ultimately buy less porn, which is bad for everybody.

At a time when they're whining about tube sites and illegal downloads, they don't always make it so easy for honest people to actually pay for their product!

If only porn studios would treat their paying customers with more respect they might find piracy is less of an issue!

As it is, they sometimes treat paying customers so badly they probably drive some into piracy! Edited on Dec 12, 2012, 07:46pm

I don't want to sound like I'm sucking up here, but I've found PU such a wonderful site that I'd like to remind everyone that when you sign up to a new site, always do your best to try and join up via the link from PU.

I presume that way PU gets the commission and they can keep this site going and continue to pay out those great raffle payments!

Just a thought...

Raffle winnings! Careful!

I first of all want to say a big THANK YOU to the site after another $50 win this week. I've won $600 now in less than 18 months and the money has come in very, very handy and helped offset my porno budget! I usually don't win anything when I enter prize draws or competitions but I've done very well on this site!

Just a warning though - the first few times I got the prizes no problem but the last couple of times Hotmail has decided the prizewinning notifications look "very suspicious" and I almost lost my vouchers having them sent to the junk folder!

So check carefully on the site each week and if you've won but have no e-mail, or have the e-mail but the actual voucher code e-mail hasn't arrived yet, check your junk mail folder!

Thanks for your contribution Cybertoad - you were one enterprising young man there! Wow! I can just imagine how I would have felt coming across such a treasure trove! Heaven!

Thomas - tell us a little more! You were lucky that you could get magazines with the models you wanted - I would have killed for gay mags back then but hey, at last I found them!

A pity you don't have your first mag any more - I find they really can bring back some powerful memories and the feelings that went along with them.

It's difficult for me to describe how I felt after so many years of waiting - and it wasn't just seeing the naked pictures either. For me, just having confirmation that there really were other men out there just like me was incredible. I kind of knew that, but somehow it was difficult to believe emotionally - and there was absolute proof!

Not only that but it was a British magazine, so it meant I knew that they really were other young men like me - the models in one of them were as young as 18 so they weren't much older than I was. Knowing they were only a little older than me and British really brought it home - especially when the model bios told me they came from ordinary places in the UK, not just London!

Finally, they had readers letters pages so I could see ordinary people were into men too, not just models... oh memories!

I think you should be ruthless - delete any porn you haven't watched more than once, or haven't watched for a set period of time, like a year.

If you're honest with yourself, you'll find there's a lot of porn which realistically you'll never watch again, so why keep it?

The porn nostalgia thread!

This idea got some support on another thread I started, and I decided it would be a good one.

This thread is to discuss porn nostalgia. Tell us about your earlier memories of porn - where did you first see it? How old were you? How did it make you feel?

My own porn story starts when I was very young and found a porno mag in an abandoned house I was looking in! I must have been about 12 and just starting puberty and to have sexual feelings. It was a straight porno mag, but it got me very excited just to know such things existed! I looked at it there but didn't dare take it home!

I didn't see any more porn until I was older, but in the meantime I used to look at the underwear sections of my mom's home-shopping catalogues! Sometimes I'd look at the men then turn to the women just before I came - to try and convince myself that's what had turned me on and I wasn't really gay! I wasn't kidding myself though!

When I got to be about 15 or 16, I'd buy the odd straight porn magazine in my local stores. I didn't know gay porn even existed, and I hoped some of the mags might have some men in them having sex with the women. Most didn't - I tried looking at the women but although the sexual and "dirty", furtive nature of the magazines excited me, really the women did nothing for me. One magazine featured a series whereby a reader was chosen to pose with a model - you never saw his cock but it was better than nothing!

I was lucky to be able to buy porn mags - you had to be 18 but I bought my first when I was 15 or 16. I was never challenged - I just looked older than I was.

Then I found some men's bodybuilding magazines, which featured the models just in g-strings. They were the closest I could get to gay porn so I bought them for a while.

I still had no idea gay porn existed until I was 16 and we went on our final family holiday together with my parents and sibling, and I saw gay porno mags on display in a department store - this was Amsterdam, and they are much more liberal about these things! It blew my mind, and I was so frustrated I couldn't buy one, but at least I now knew gay porn existed!

It was around this time (about mid-1990s) that softcore porn mags for women were launched in the UK. I went to town one day and found a newsagent (I don't know if they have them in North America - a small store which sells newspapers, magazines, tobacco and sweets/candy) in the city centre which sold gay porn mags! I was so excited! I went into town but I was shocked to find the magazines cost 4.99 (probably about US$8-9)! I'd assumed they cost the same as the straight ones which were less than half that price. I didn't have enough money! I'd only got 5 but I needed bus fare home and it was too far to walk! The frustration was incredible!

So I got a copy of "For Women" magazine, which was about 2.99 I think - I had just enough. The assistant was a kind middle-aged lady who looked kind of surprised at my choice, but after a few seconds she recovered from her shock, wiped the shocked expression from her face, and made a big effort to be nice and even offered to put it in a paper bag for me! I'll never forget her or that little shop - sadly gone now - but it was a really nice moment and she was kind to me.

That magazine was a revelation - it only had about 3 models in it and very softcore - no erections, just naked men - they tried to make it seem like the nude pics were just incidental and the rest of the magazine was just normal women's magazine articles. I still have that magazine and I wouldn't part with it though it seems tame now, as it means a lot to me and brings back memories!

Anyway I still wanted proper gay porn, so I waited till my 17th birthday and spent my birthday money from relatives (sorry, grandma and aunties!) on TWO gay porn mags, costing the grand total of 9.98 - a lot of cash to me! I had to go to a different store - no kind lady in this one! The assistants were male and obviously not gay-friendly, though of course they were happy to take gay peoples money! I waited around until the store was quietish, but it was never entirely quiet being in a busy city centre (downtown?!). They gave me funny looks and I knew they were talking about me as I left, but I didn't care - I had my first real GAY porn!

That was nirvana - one of the magazine had stills of two men having sex with each other - it's hard to describe how incredible that was! Still pretty softcore - in those days even gay mags didn't show erections in the UK so the sex was suggestive - you didn't actually see a cock in a mouth or an ass, but it was enough for me!

I hid my porn underneath my dresser draws - there was a space in the bottom if you pulled the bottom drawer out.

Finally they started selling softcore gay porn in mainstream stores like HMV - record stores which also sold videos. I'd buy these VHS tapes - they cost about 19.99 on first release but you could sometimes pick up older titles for as little as 4 - 5. Again I wasn't 18 but nobody ever challenged me! I still have and remember which was my first softcore tape.

Although they sound lame, the lack of explicitness did mean the directors had to be creative, and there was a lot of slow stripping as once the guy was naked there wasn't much more you could show - so in many ways the videos were more erotic than hardcore porn today, which has no build-up - everyone is naked straight away, so some of the sexiness and teasing element has been lost which is sad - and why I can still enjoy the occasional old softcore video even when I can watch much harder stuff with real sex in it!

This was back in the olden days of porn - in the UK censorship laws were so strict you still couldn't show an erection, so again all sex was implied - fucking and sucking was filmed from behind so all you saw was an ass going up and down, never the actual cock going in.

Frustrating, but still pretty strong stuff for me and it just meant a lot to see men having sex with each other, implied or not - I now knew I wasn't the only one who wanted this and other men really have sex with each other!

I forget when hardcore porn was legalised in the UK. They introduced a new "R18" video classification I think the in the late 1990s. This classification can only be sold in licensed sex-shops, and still has some restrictions you don't see in other countries porn, but it allowed erections and full sex to be shown for the first time.

They seemed to be very cautious at first, allowing R18s to be released for a limited period, but the early R18 porn was over-catious - they'd show erections but only briefly, and oral sex but only for a few seconds - and anal sex was still implied rather than fully shown. I guess they were testing out what was possible.

Then it seemed to disappear for a while, then the law was clarified and the first full-sex R18 videos came out around 2000.

Technically these can still only be sold in licensed sex-shops, but European Union law means you can order them online via another European Union country, usually the Netherlands, so you get websites which sell them marketed direct to the UK, but despatch them via another EU country.

Of course the internet has made video classifications almost irrelevant, and since broadband was introduced at decent speeds, you can now enjoy internet porn from around the world. I rarely buy porn DVDs now, though I occasionally still do if it looks hot and it's reasonably priced - the price has come down a lot thanks to the internet. I also like to support the gay sex stores as I don't want them to disappear.

Whoops, this turned into kind of a novel! Hope I haven't bored everyone!

Tell me about your first porn experiences and any funny stories around them... let's take a porno journey into the past. Especially interested in our older contributors who will remember even before VHS videos.... Edited on Sep 23, 2012, 10:17am

Thanks for all the helpful replies! It's funny - looking at some of the earliest tapes as quite nostalgic for me because I can clearly remember which were the first ones I bought - until I was 16 I didn't even know gay porn existed, and it blew my mind when I first saw it - especially as I was still coming to terms with being gay.

So I guess some of the content actually has some emotional significance to me - it reminds me of when I was very young and seeing men do what I'd wanted to do for years really meant a lot to me - I really wasn't the only gay men and lots of other men really did do all I'd dreamed of - there was the visual proof!

I can remember how nervous I was buying it, and which stores I had to go to, to get it!

This makes me want to talk about porno nostalgia - think I'll start a nostalgia thread!

I do want to keep the content on quite of a lot of the videos. Some I remember as being crappy so I won't bother with those - but it could be a fun project one day watching them again to double check!

The ones I do enjoy I think I will see about copying somehow. I'd forgotten about combined VHS/DVD recorders - you don't see them in shops so much now but I'm sure I could get hold one of one, secondhand if required - I'd only need it for one big operation after all as I won't be buying any more VHS tapes in future. If not, I might try and put the content onto my computer. I still have the video player and it's a reasonably up to date and decent one so I'm sure it would have the necessary outputs to go onto my PC.

It's funny - I hate the idea of downloading in general - still prefer CDs and DVDs generally - and of course real books not e-books, but I don't care so much about porno being downloaded! I guess because I don't care to have the cases on display like I do with non-porn DVDs and CDs!Plus I have so much more porn than I do non-porn DVDs and CDs put together and I only have so much room (though I easily have more books than porn - I love reading!).

As for getting rid of them well I think most will end up in the garbage - it's true I can just put them in a heavy-duty trash bag - good idea!

I might see if anyone I know might want them - I find gay men are generally quite open and unashamed about using porn! I remember when I went to Brighton several years ago you could sell your old porn to them, but I expect they wouldn't want VHS tapes either now. Craigslist would let me place an ad I'm sure.

I might just keep a handful of the very best tapes for the cover and the memories they invoke - a bit of nostalgia. They'll be curios by the time I'm an old man, and I can show them to young queens who won't have even heard of VHS!

If not, copy the good stuff and then junk the lot I think! I'm off to shop for some heavy-duty garbage bags! Edited on Sep 22, 2012, 08:00am

I hate streaming-only sites and don't understand their appeal at all.

Streaming is fine for a quick preview to help me decide whether I want to download it, so I am happy to have streaming as an option on a site, but streaming only? Forget it!

I think the one thing I heard about streaming-only which I kind of understood was that it kept the stuff off your hard-drive - some people are paranoid about that kind of thing and of course it does take up a lot of space.

I guess just accessing it whenever you want, and being able to clear your browsing history, cookies etc. makes some people feel more secure.

Still, it annoys me when a site is streaming-only - I was only caught once and that's when I didn't realise such a thing existed! Fool me once - I've never joined a streaming-only site since - no matter how hot. I check first on PU or TBP and if it's streaming-only I don't even check out the previews - not interested.

I guess people are used to the idea of streaming from tube sites, but those are free so you don't expect to own the content.

I guess it's more akin to renting a DVD instead of buying one - but then renting one was always cheaper than buying it, and it tended to be for something you only saw once.

Streaming sites are often just as expensive as download sites, so there's no saving.

I suppose if you only watch each movie once or a couple of times and don't intend to watch it again it's okay, but I can watch the same movie over and over if it's hot enough, and I still like to own what I pay for.

Plus I find streaming frustrating - it's rarely fast enough for me so I often get stutter, out-of-synch audio, slow downloading etc. etc. At least if I download something then however slow it was, and however long I had to wait, once I have it I can skip through it without any issues.

I do understand why some studios are reluctant to allow downloads with piracy being as it is.

One thing I didn't think might be an idea as a compromise between the two would be a sort of "cloud" site whereby you joined for free, got a username and password, paid for whatever content you wanted, and then that available to stream whenever you wanted permanently. You'd have to pay for new content as you wanted it, but content you'd already paid for would remain permanently available to stream but not download.

Although I'd still prefer a download option, I would consider joining such a site - though it would have to be very hot, and I'd still expect it to be cheaper overall than a download site. Edited on Sep 20, 2012, 10:51am

Old VHS porn - do you still have it?

I was clearing out some of my old stuff today and I was kind of amazed at how much old porn I had amassed over the years!

I'm only in my 30s but I've been buying porn since I was about 15, and I started getting VHS tapes when I was around 16 or 17. I was too young to buy them of course but always looked younger than my age!

Anyway I seem to have hundreds of old VHS tapes. Some of them I remember as being hot and I so I still want to keep them.

I still have a VHS player.

Still I don't have a great amount of room, so I don't know what to do. I guess I should sort through the tapes and get rid of old ones I no longer want, but it seems kinda awkward to know how to get rid of them.

I gave a load of non-porn VHS tapes to my local charity shop (I think my North American friends call them goodwill stores) and they seemed happy enough to take them though I don't know how many people would buy them now. However, I gave those away because I now have them on DVD.

Some of my old porn was never released on DVD so I want to save them. I guess eventually my VHS player will die so I should maybe buy a kit to convert them into a computer file or something, though I'm not sure about this. The technical and also the legal side - is it okay to make a backup copy? If so, do I have to keep the tape to prove I bought a copy legally or can I then dispose of the tape?

The ones I don't want though - what do I do with them? Just throw them away? I can't give them to a charity shop, and even freecycle seems kind of inappropriate!

I did wonder about a Craigslist ad - they allow personal sex ads so I'm sure they'll allow that too. That way I could make sure whoever picked them up was over 18.

Ebay don't allow them to be sold and I can't think of any other way of getting rid of them.

I also feel kinda nervous about putting out all those tapes for the bin men (garbage men?!).

Anyone else have old VHS porn? Ever watch it? Will you keep it and if not, how do you propose to get rid of it?
