Please Stop Putting Hot Gay Porn Stars In Stupid POV Porn Scenes, Thanks

Posted November 30, 2018 by with 31 comments

DtGN_JuU8AATj4DI complain about it every time I see it, as it’s pretty much always unwatchable (with maybe a few exceptions for a couple of minutes, here and there), and I would like to now officially ask gay porn studios to please stop producing POV porn, permanently. Thanks.

I need to see both gay porn stars in full view—not boring close-up angles of one guy doing something with the other guy’s body part.

I need to see both gay porn stars’ bodies and—most importantly—faces while they suck and fuck. How do we know if the other guy is enjoying this? For all we know, he could be bored and not even paying attention to the guy he’s fucking.

POV porn is (wrongly) believed to be appealing because it makes the viewer feel like he’s the one behind the camera, and therefore it’ll make him feel like he’s the one having sex with the gay porn star? I might be desperate and lonely, but I’m not desperate and lonely enough to need a dumb fantasy or virtual inclusion in someone else’s fuckfest in order to jerk off. The gay porn stars are the only ones who I want to be thinking about, and I do not need to be involved! Just show me the hot guys, please.

Like, what is the point of this.

POV porn is made all the more frustrating when a POV scene features two guys who are really fucking hot, as is the case today. We get to see them both, briefly, in a couple of the still photos for the scene:

DtH9lDfU4AIwI_K DtGN7BwV4AAeATfToday’s GayRoom POV scene features Mateo Fernandez (FYI: there is non-POV GayRoom porn with Mateo here, and there is non-POV bareback porn with Mateo here) and Max Marciano (a.k.a. GayHoopla’s Max Richie).

DtNIXfPUcAAk-ilGiven how perfect both of these guys are from head to toe, this would ordinarily be a must-see, scorching hot duo. Instead, I’m gonna have to pass on this one. We don’t even get to see Mateo’s gorgeous face in this trailer, which I find personally offensive, tbh. Trailer (watch full scene here):

[GayRoom: Mateo Fernandez Fucks Max Marciano]

There is no need and no desire from anyone for POV porn, so please stop making it. Thank you.

  • God of knowing…..

    i don’t mind it…. well that just me…

    • B.C.

      Ditto. It’s like a one man show, but better. I definitely prefer POV to solo action or service only scenes.

    • P-laudy

      Me too, I think not all the people likes POV, but in my case I really don’t care about the fucking expressions of the top…my point of view is always the guy who gets fucked, the penetration and his ass so thats perfectly fine for me.

    • Eric from Sweden

      I don’t mind it either, but less shaky camera would make it better.

    • Brian Sky

      This genre in gay porn is not that bad. There are many gay and staright POV scenes that I really find quite hot. I think it depends on your taste.

    • cluelesswitness

      I like POV blow jobs and doggy style fucking

  • Michael Lewis

    I really think the porn industry is the most out of touch with their consumers out of any form of entertainment.

  • Hari Kalyan

    This how I feel with ANY extreme and extended close ups during a scene. Like we get it: They’re fucking. He’s being penetrated. We don’t need to see that for 75% of the scene. Why does porn in 2018 still do this. Its to a point where I will skim a scene by randomly skipping to 5 or 6 parts, and if most of those are close ups I just know the scene is trash cinematically.

  • McM.

    POV. Created for straight men. Useless to everyone else.

    • Zachary Sire

      Yes! I think that is EXACTLY it. All the stupidest themes, sub-genres, “fetishes,” and other bullshit in gay porn comes from straight porn–because so many gay porn studios are owned by straight porn conglomerates.

      • David Thomas

        Super late to this post, but here’s why I love POV porn:

        – POV porn is made for tops.
        The reason POV porn works in straight porn is because the woman is the primary focus for men. Unlike straight porn, gay men are lucky to be attracted to all parties involved with a scene. That said, and speaking as a top, I actually don’t need to see two men fucking in order to get turned on. What turns me on is seeing the face of a bottom; I love seeing the pleasurable expressions bottoms have while getting fucked. That’s all I really need from porn. POV videos essentially strips away all distractions and gives me exactly what I want to see, which is a beautiful man I can focus on who takes cock and loves it.

        – POV porn puts more emphasis on ass.
        Gay porn tends to focus primarily on cock. Speaking as an ass man, through and through, this is irritating and gets old. It’s rare that you come across porn that truly focuses on butts. Ass worship is almost nonexistent in gay porn. The only site that I can think of that actually highlights ass on a consistent basis is the “Hot Ass”
        It’s ironic, but gay porn really doesn’t do a good job highlighting ass the way straight porn does…except in POV scenes. Almost all gay POV scenes put a spotlight on the bottom’s ass, and I love that. Booty is my favorite part of a man’s body, and POV porn is perfect for ass.

        Lastly, I get that you’re not a fan of the genre, but why call for a boycott and ruin the fun of people who do enjoy it? If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. There’s no reason to demand studios to stop producing this genre.

        Most models have one, maybe two, POV scenes in their entire career. It’s not like you won’t be able to see these models in normal porn videos. You’re mad that Max is in a POV scene, yet in this same article you link to a non-POV scene with Max. This is a subgenre and it’s not taking over mainstream porn. Keep in mind, your taste is not universal. There’s nothing wrong with variety, and I personally love studios who put out POV porn for guys like me.

    • Aaron Boone

      Nope.

    • Maximus

      Just like society in general!

  • Eclipse

    Max is so fucking hot. While I definitely agree with Zach, I can’t say no to more of Max and his perfect face and ass.

  • No_No_No_Yes

    I fucking HATE POV too, what a waste of talent. LOVE that Max has seemingly slipped the bonds of GH! But he can do so much better. Anyone else jump ship there this week?

  • Kevin Jones

    Agreed. I want to see the whole picture not a POV. It’s just annoying.

  • wdeee

    I actually like some POV scenes…. I had no idea they were this resented. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0aeef66bb6ab3703b8bcc52299abf54ea8565edf83088c46a3a5917eaa837eaa.gif

  • Hush-ins

    POV shots is not a problem for me when they come in still images or only in certain parts like blowjob scenes. They fulfill the sense of domination I can never be able to achieve.
    Speaking of which, this was what made Colt Rivers have a meltdown, wasn’t it?

  • Tempest

    POV and VR porn are just poor excuses to emulate straight porn, so.

  • Neil

    “How do we know if the other guy is enjoying this? For all we know, he could be bored and not even paying attention to the guy he’s fucking.”

    . . . his ocular lenses irising in and out to exact digital focus with his cold cyborg eye . . .

  • txgeek2000

    Didn’t realize POV was so hated. I actually enjoy POV, specifically when the perspective is a close up of a blowjob.

  • erexshawn

    POV is the new POS.

  • Ty Huber

    Fascinating thread. I’m mainly in Zach’s camp: just say no to POV. There should always be at least one camera operator shooting the whole scene. If another camera or phone is passed around as they switch-hit, that can be cool. But as the action nears completion, I’d like the models to be fucking hard without the added task of handling a camera. Related: With some studios (eg. BoyCrush/Bare Twinks) the “regular” direction and camera work are so terrible that the POV scenes are the only ones to capture good angles, but those scenes still usually suck.

  • DaveAtom

    Agree. I can watch POV takes in my porn, but not a complete scene filmed in that way. I like to see both faces, complete bodies, wide angles, etc. And esp kissing. Proper foreplay is never (obv) part of POV, and proper foreplay is essential for me.

  • Pinko of the Grange

    Like every thing else…It can be done well or suck.

    As stated elsewhere POV is better when used as part of the loop, but it can get tedious.

    Ideally it would make a great alternate camera angle that the viewer could toggle between. But then more people would have to actually pay for porn.

  • Philip Broad

    It will be interesting to see how the industry responds to Zach’s entreaty to stop making POV scenes. His willingness to put his own credibility on the line is admirable.

  • TruthTeller2020

    Welp! Another diverted Gayhoopla model. They clearly can’t keep their models.

  • Scot2313

    Like to fantasize the hot man is sucking me. So that kind of POV is hot for me. Think all men with dicks in their mouths are hot.

  • Aaron Boone

    Nah, it’s hot.

  • MM

    Id rather POV than all these onlyfans quality videos/angles

  • Sed

    It’s just like McM said. Now if gay people actually ran gay porn companies we might not have this problem. Why would gay men want to see a scene where only one performer was visible? But alas.
