Whatever I am going to talk further doesn’t just apply to a teen, it is something everybody should know, irrespective of their gender and age.

It was porn that introduced me to a naked woman for the first time. I was a teenager and wasn’t mature enough to analyze anything. I just saw a perfect woman, having perfect sex with a perfect man.

I believed in whatever I saw. But what needs to be known is that nobody, and nothing, is perfect!

You don’t find a “perfect woman” just like the one in porn, in the real world. 

The breasts are not always perfect. They go through surgery to achieve that. The vagina isn’t as fabulous as it looks in a porn. They put on a lot of makeup. Hair might be everywhere. From underarms to thighs, around hips to the vagina, they are everywhere. In porn, the lighting, the makeup, and the editing make a woman flawless.

In the same way, a man isn’t as perfect as he is shown in a porn movie.

That muscular body isn’t the standard. Six packs are not something every man possesses. Men are hairy. Like really hairy. And on a man’s body, they are almost everywhere. The penis is not as perfect as it is shown. It has its own flaws. And yes. Men don’t last that long. Male porn stars take pills or sometimes injection on their genital to have that erection last longer.

Sex isn’t as exciting and wonderful as it is shown in a porn.

Sex is highly overrated. Sometimes you just want to end it as soon as possible. Sometimes you feel like stopping it in the middle of the session. The most of the positions that are shown in a porn movie are nearly impossible to perform in a real world.

The moaning of a female is acting. Things might be totally different in reality.

In porn, they act like they are having sex. Just like any other regular movie, they fake emotions. Just like any other regular movie, everything is shown beautiful and perfect. But that’s not the truth. Reality is totally different.

Don’t set your expectations high about your partner based on porn. It will destroy your relationship and your life, both.
