The internet is for porn

Yeah, I bet you read that title and are thinking I'm some kind of sick perv, or you're thinking I stole it from the song in Avenue Q.

Anyway, I did the pastime of thinking and came up with this query...what is porn? I'm not gonna sit here and look it up, but I've always known it to be something that we have pleasure viewing that is out of our league.

A good example is weather porn. I caught some highlights of the Pro Bowl from the other weekend and every shot they showed before they got the what was happening in the game was based on the beach, or the trees, or something tropical like that. For those of us that live in non-tropical places this can be considered weather porn, especially when its cold weather here.

Music is my porn by my definition (and the little woman). Wanna make something of it? Bring it on. lol Seriously, as much time as I spend watching videos, downloading, writing, listening, and playing music, I'm surprised I haven't desensitized myself to it...lol

I'm sure there are other forms of porn that we never realized. This just popped in my head this morning when I was looking through some music stuffs. The things I can come up with when I get to thinking, huh? lol

I'm pretty sure porn deals with penises and/or vaginas.

I know exactly what you mean. My husband might agree on the Music porn angle. He spends a great deal of time on his collection, and sharing it with all of us.

Here's mine: foodporn.

Anything everything food... I love cooking!

Being pregnant with cravings doesn't help... but it's always been there.

"weather porn"!! I'm gonna remember that one! I do tend to stroll through the tropical resorts online when it's miserable outside here.....

Food porn, too, is a good one. Tends to lead to the real thing though, which can be dangerous for the waist line (come to think of it, so can regular porn....)

Does game porn count? Spending endless hours playing spades against a computer opponent or going crazy on Word Whomp? Hmmm...

My husband Craig is definitely a weather porn kind of guy (probably the "traditional" as well).
But I'm more of a food porn kind of gal ...
You know what I'm talking about ... Top Chef, Bobby Flay, The Naked Chef, etc.
Now think about the "Naked" Chef -
Don't you think they knew the were marketing food porn there?
I know once in awhile I get into a little spoiled/crazy/rich housewife porn ...
The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Geez ... enough said!

Goddess- glad you like the weather porn. Regular porn can be dangerouis for the waist line?

Preston- if game orn does count, then i;'m guilty of it, too...lol

dawn- i know what you mean. Rachel Ray, Barefoot Contessa, Giada, Sunny Anderson...not to mention the stuff they're cooking....--drools--

My porn is domain name collecting.
I will hear or think up a cool phrase or word pairing and run to my laptop see if someone's already bought it as a domain name. If not, I'll get it. I have around 100 domain names right now.
Sometimes I like to open my registry account and just look at and admire this long list of domains, imagining the cool websites I'll build on various ones, or the big $$$$ I'll make selling this or that one in a domain auction.
I get really excited when I'm checking to see if a name is already taken or not, and if it's not, I scream out in glee and buy it. I always get a nice little high when I buy a new domain. Sick, right? LOL!

Well, that's my porn! :D

In fact, I think I'm gonna go over there and take a peek right now... ;)
