Women have impossibly high standards of personal hygiene, hence women's sport forcing huge upgrades of changing facilities because they're not prepared to use the hovels we used, I very much doubt they would jump into bad with a dude who changes his cheats every full moon or so.
Ha ha, wrong thread - although scent is very much a sexual thing too in terms of pheremonal arousal.

Amateur porn can be pretty good - showing men and women having real fun rather than pretending to have fun.

Yet a few months ago (in response to a handful of criminals among millions of people) Pornhub purged almost all the amateur porn on their site, leaving only a bunch of lame bad actors who make silly staged videos. With the simultaneous rise of Onlyfans, pure amateur porn that shows normal sex rather than staged weirdness is going the way of the dodo.

All this talk about protecting boys from porn is pissing in the wind. That horse bolted when dirty magazines came out decades ago. You have about as much hope of stopping teenage boys from watching porn as you have of converting the Pope to Islam. Boys instead need to be educated that degrading women in any context is unacceptable. Who is going to teach them though? Their girlfriends?

There was a real problem with the amateur videos being posted to Pornhub. I think we could all agree on a reasonable set of criteria for amateurs posting sex videos on the internet, such as:
- the participants must be adults (aged 18+)
- the acts must be consensual
- the recording must be consensual
- the publication of the recording must be consensual.

There we far too many complaints that violated one or more of those criteria, like secret recordings, or ex-partners posting old videos made in happier times as revenge, or rape videos, or rape videos of underage people posted to share with the world and further humiliate the victim as if just being raped was not bad enough on its own. PornHub were too slow to act and take down videos following complaints - until it became a political issue and they were threatened with legislation and regulation, then suddenly they took it seriously. There is an obligation on those who host such sites to make sure the material posted by amateurs meets these criteria. It is no good just shrugging your shoulders and blaming it on users breaching the conditions of use. The conditions of use need to be enforced and checked a bit a bit more rigour than that.
