What are your views on Hentai?

Postby Apollo » Wed 05.31.2006 2:00 pm

Well I've heard many things about all kinds of hentai and all that, and I was wondering what you guys think about it. I know that there's PG-13 Hentai where there's no sexual interaction involved and so on. But yah, what are your views on Hentai? Please...if you do like hentai...please don't post any on here...@_@

So... what's your definition of hentai here? I thought anime people considered hentai "anime-porn"?

I also thought hentai was always sexual.

I can't really give an opinion because I haven't seen any myself, but I've heard the content can get quite strong.

Oh, and this isn't an off-topic discussion, is it?

I also always thought it was always sexual. like たぬき-さん i have never seen it but i think all forms of porn are just pointless and disgusting. And what is the point of wathcing anime-charecters have sex?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?.

well it kind of is like yaoi and shonen-ai right?

yaoi is full on, where as shonen-ai is basically just either hugging and kissing or 'implied' relationships

what about yuri? (girl+girl)

Yeah....never was into that....Iz is alwayz jokin' with my friends by saying they're hentai, when they're not but that's different....

Anyways...yeah...never seen, never care to. (And what jinksys said above just shows how sexually obesessed and hentai guys are...grrr.....)

My thoughts: it can be sick and gross and way out there, but ...to each his own i guess?

ecchi is the pg13 stuff. Hentai is all out raw and often uncensored. I actually linked a scholastic article that encouraged students to read hentai if it kept them motivated enough to read Japanese.

So if there is something about hentai that keeps you comming back for more and makes you interested in the words, as well, more power to you.

I'm finding out more and more though that most of the artists so many of us respect and point at, got their start in doujinshi and hentai. Oh! Great, just as one example, who is mostly known for Tenjou Tenge also does hentai, I've seen some Hentai from him dealing with snuff and rape themes.

Personally, I don't think there is anything wrong with it. Even when it depicts things that offend me, it's not real. So as the caption often says, "No animals were harmed in the filming of this movie"

No people were degraded either. It'll keep the STD rate down among porn stars I guess.

I'm still curious as to exactly what Apollo is talking about. A lot of "normal" anime has full nudity and fairly graphic sex scenes (as much as a rated-R hollywood movie, if not worse).

As for people's interest in it... take a look at the cosplay thread. Some people get into anime so much, that they start getting physically attracted to the characters. Wanting to see them in... other... situations is a progression of that I guess.

no i am a guy!!!!!
Hentai is good because their is no transfer of STI's and STD's and no degrading. Also people dont have to be in strange situatuions like their parents buy porn and find out that their kid is an "actor" in the film.
But still i find all forms of porn disgusting. i think its only for people that dont take the time to go on a date.

However if you people are going to watch porn choose hentai over real, it's less degrading..........

ya.... anime can show a lot of sex without going over the "R" rating.(a lot more than a real show can.

The only kind of pornography/hentai I am against is child/lolicon. Kiddie porn is rape/child abuse, and lolicon might as well be training videos for perverts.

I have the best view on hentai which makes me laugh everytime I think about it. I want you to clear your head and think of this image:

30 japanese guys are in a meeting room together, they're all about 20 to 30 and are making a new hentai...One guy says "hey guys, wouldnt it be a good idea to stuff a snake up her vagina?". Another one adds "yeah with lots of fluids!!!". The other guys are all happy with the new idea, so off they go animating with the hands down the pants.

Thats what I think how hentai is made :D By sad sexually-distressed men.
Good luck with studying everybody and I hope one day I will be able to pick it back up.

Until then, a nice goodbye from me to you ;)
