Capn (28) I don't honestly think I have made one with it really.

Apart from joining the odd disappointing site from time to time.

Being a regular here helps, but I think you still get burned on occasion.

Cap'n. :0)

pat362 (373) I picked lost it but that's not really the truth. I actually threw it away. That is what I reggret the most because I had some really great classic porn movies that no longer exist. Of course I also happenned to have some now illegal stuff so that not such a big loss. The illegal stuff would mostly be movies with Tracy Lords. I know she was 15 when she started doing porn but I had no idea that she was and she certainly didn't act 15 in her movies.

rearadmiral (384) Back when my porn collection was more bulky and not comprised of a bunch of ones and zeros that live on a discrete box, I accidentally left a drawer unlocked and my stash was discovered by a rather prudish girlfriend.

I'm much more careful these days even though I can leave an external drive sitting on my desk.

I had to toss a lot of my collection too, mostly because it got hard to hide hundreds of VHS tapes. That's the bad news. The good news (for me anyway) is that I've been able to find a lot of it on the 'net over the past while. Some of it is pretty poor quality, but then it was poor quality when I had it. It was often a dub of a dub.

About a year ago I concentrated on finding a lot of my old favourites and was surprised at how well I did. I'm still finding a few too. Two nights ago I was downloading and watching some old Buttman stuff and stumbled on a title that I didn't even remember but one of the thumbnails looked familiar. It turned out to be a favourite scene that I had completely lost track of and it would have been hard to find since the girl only did three scenes in her short career. (It was the last scene in Bend Over Babes 1 with a girl named Chantelle.)

As for Traci Lords, I had one of her 'early' titles too. I can't remember what it was called, but you can be sure that is one I won't go looking for!

pinkerton (39) For me it was 1, 2 and 4
Girlfriend found a gangbang site in my browser history, my laptop's hard drive crashed and lost all my files (long long time ago) and I did manage to delete the wrong files but luckily recovered most of them.

badandy400 (103) Pretty much all the above.

I have spent so much money on it. I could have bought a nice car with that money.

I have had it found many times. Do not even care anymore. Wife knows it is there.

Lost a bunch about 6 months ago. About 5 TB down the drain when a Raid volume got messed up. It was there I just did not know it. Recovered about 10 TB of the 15 in that volume, the reason was gone, I think the volume was too large for the recovery software but really not sure. That was about 7-8% of my collection, so not a huge deal and fortunately I have a file with all the file names in it from a directory logger. So if I want I can go back and try to redownload it.

I may not have found all the movies I once had but at least I have found some streaming sites like hot movies that still have a few of them. of course it's not the same and it's also not cheap to stream an entire movie. My biggest problem are the European movies that I had which cannot be found anywhere. I think those are the ones that I miss the most because I simply can't find them anywhere.

I agree that it was getting hard to store all those VHS tapes but I still wish I had kept them all.

graymane (33) Spending too much time on it rules...... evidenced at it now being near the 4:00am hour whilst showing little chance of breakin away from the screen and going to bed.

BadMrFrosty (56) Spending a, quite frankly, ungodly amount of time organising my huge collection almost to the point of OCD.

slutty (111) I once accidentally deleted a bunch of stuff I was sure I copied to an external, but I hadn't. That was pretty irritating, but oh well.

Hmm... lost 5TB, which is about 7-8% of your collection, so... :O

My mind is officially boggled. You must have all of the porn :)

rearadmiral (384) REPLY TO #10 - pat362 :

I agree with everything you said. I should have noted that some of the movies that I was able to relocate cost me a lot and many have some DRM limitations. That's frustrating, but there's really nothing I can do about it so I'll just have to live with it.

I also wish that I had looked at more options for storing the tapes, even if it was renting a small storage locker. That just wasn't feasible though. But when I started to go all digital (first stored on CD, then DVD and now external harddrives) I vowed to never delete anything. Storage now is small, cheap and discrete so I just won't delete anything.

As for European movies, I understand that. I wasn't a big collector, but I had one title from the L'il Women series (from Germany I think) that I'd love to have or see again. I can find some titles from that series, but not the one I want.

I like your answer better than the other choices. If I had turned more to porn and not spent all my money chasing women in my youth I would be a very wealthy individual today. The pursuit of women is the most expensive hobby there is (not even counting alimony and property confiscation in divorces).

I'm only well off now because I haven't chased women for nearly two decades (and was lucky to settle down with one good woman who I don't really deserve, but whom I appreciate).

Thanks - I didn't really mean it in the sense of a complete substitute for the real thing, but I guess you didn't either.

I think more I meant that browsing for and looking at smut is a fun pastime; I don't spend too much money or time on it, but when I do look at porn, I enjoy it and wish I'd been able to admit that to myself sooner.

It sounds a bit odd - perverse, even - to put it this way, but I see porn as good clean fun :)

The majority of my European movies were from the Marc Dorcel studio.
The company is still in business today and still releases new titles but somehow none of those original movies are offdered.

Porn is good fun. Not sure about clean, but then I don't mind getting a little dirty.

When I was younger I devoted way too much time and money to chasing women because it was fun. It was, however, a great way to throw money around with little return. If there's a worse way to get nothing for something, it can only be drug or gambling addictions.

gaypornolover (38) I regret spending money on some porn I turned out not to enjoy, but that's no different to regular movies, or buying a book I turned out not to like, or clothes I don't end up wearing.

I don't regret anything specific to porn itself - I love it and I'm glad it's there!

Drooler (220) Pretty much what gaypornlover said. I took risks -- for the PU community sometimes -- and found some sites to be duds. And sometimes I just got too eager to rejoin something only to find it pretty lacking and being beneath expectations. It was money down the drain.

But I have only myself to blame.

Ambition (15) I used to subscribe to porn way easier, especially when I was horny, so I picked "Spent too much on it" as I did regret joining several sites in the past.
