Yes or No to Tentacle Porn

Tentacles are weird, shocking, threatening, powerful, and a little ‘ewww’. Carrying that aura of repulsion which is always close to lust. The possibilities multiply with each tentacle. Tentacle pornography erupted into popularity after the second world war, largely as a way to avoid censorship and obscenity laws that banned penises and pubic hair. But it’s older than that, one of the most famous examples is The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife (1814) which depicts a woman being pleasured by two octopi. The consensual-non-consensual of tentacle porn is present in this image, and much tentacle erotica plays with this – seducing, poisoning or just overpowering women/men so the ‘creature’ (vine or sea like) can ‘invade’. The pleasure overpowering so the subjects pass out, or with a chemically induced high so strong they are drawn back to the site over and over… In popular press tentacle porn is associated with misogyny because the erotic allure is seen as one more way of controlling and violating women this time with a hyper penis that leaves nothing untouched. As Colours of Passion writes, the tentacle porn scenario opens the way for fantasy and experience of multiple penetration without the necessity of framing it within gangbangs. It offers total possession in all orifices without the need to deal with male bodies. But male bodies do operate in tentacle erotica as victims and sacrifices too, their bodies also wrapped, bound, squeezed, pumped, squirted, and penetrated by phallic, or robotic, or animalistic, or creepy moving tentacles. Imagine every part of you sucked at, pulled at, bound, touched, penetrated, by one being who feels you, all at once, overwhelming you. For some it is the ultimate in surrender for a Wicked Wednesday.

 

Tentacle porn… when I think of it, I think ‘ewww’, but at the same time I am intrigued. To say the least, I have mixed feelings about it. I have frequently shared images from konachan.com and for this post, I will do the same.

The following two are images that immediately make me go ‘ewww’:

Why? Because of the slime or whatever else the gooey-looking stuff is. It looks messy and just yuck. Furthermore, I am scared of octupi and especially in the second photo, the tentacles look too real. These are the kind of images I immediately click away.

The following images, however, are images that I tend to look at and they make me feel… interested.

Again the question: why? Why do I like these two images more than the first two?
In both these photos the tentacles look like penises, which I like more than the real-looking tentacles. In the image on the right, the girl willingly gives herself to the tentacles and it looks like she’s enjoying it too. I like that. In the one on the left, the girl has her hand around one of the ‘penises’ which again makes me think she’s enjoying too, but I also like the way her one leg is held by a tentacle, like she is in bondage. I think another thing that pull me in with tentacle porn, is the double penetration. I have never experienced double penetration and it’s something I would really want to experience at least once.

Then I want to share another image with you:

Of the five photos I have shared, I like this one the best. Yes, there’s a lot of those gooey-looking stuff in the image and the tentacles don’t look like penises. Still, I like it. Why? I have no idea. Is it the fact that her legs and one arm are ‘bound’ by tentacles? Maybe. Is it the fact that she’s penetrated vaginally and anally? Maybe. Is it the way she lies, as if she has surrendered to the ‘treatment’ of the tentacles? Maybe.

If I just forget about the tentacles for a moment and think about… being restricted, surrendering to whatever happens, double penetration, pure sex, available, used… yes, then tentacle sex sounds interesting, as long as it’s not too messy, that is.

    thank you for looking and trying and I loved the images. Also Zelda’s link to not penis, and Simina’s points about ‘not human’ I can totally get that, and also the humanising attempts by Melina have me interested at how we all read something different into pictures and erotica 🙂 thank you. xxxxx

  2. The messy doesn’t bother me as much. And like you, I take away the tentacle aspect of it and think of being used, feeling full and sensations everywhere, and then it’s hot to me.

    I love how you used picture comparisons, why didn’t I think of that?

  3. I had a running fantasy when I was younger involving a tentacle monster, partially inspired, unsurprisingly, by an old cartoon that depicted the main character being caught by a giant octopus and spanked with a tentacle. So the bondage, spanking, and DP aspects of tentacle porn have always fascinated me. I think it was useful in my fantasies when I was younger because it wasn’t a person. I didn’t fantasize about people, I fantasized about being acted upon and a tentacle creature fit into the faceless aggressor motif of my fantasies.

    When I watch porn, it’s generally hentai, and some of it is like the images you posted.

  4. I’ll be honest, I found this prompt really difficult. Like Molly, tentacles just don’t do anything for me but, having said that, not having an affinity with them DEFINITELY created an interesting challenge when it came to writing my post this week. (It’s good to push yourself!)

    I’m not sure that I like any of the first four pictures more or less than each other but I’d have to agree, there’s something more appealing about that last one. I think, for me, it’s because the tentacles are more rope-like and therefore more ‘bondage’ and less ‘creature’.

  5. I love your analytical approach to this prompt. It really is a fascinating question. This has to be the topic of at least a chapter in at least one PhD’s dissertation, don’t you think?

    My favorite pic is #4 (going from top to bottom, left to right). I agree, she looks most in control. (And she has pretty breasts & vulva). I would really like pic 5 *if* the woman didn’t appear so spent and drugged. She looks sad to me.

    I was surprised in writing my Wicked Wednesday that this was the first prompt I found myself wanting to build an emotional bond between the lovers. Perhaps I had a subconscious need to humanize the creature.

  6. I went through a tentacle porn phase as a teen specifically because they DIDN’T look like dicks… Trust a sheltered teen from Iowa to find penises scary but tentacles A-OK 😛 Love your perspective on this– you do such a brilliant job of breaking down the genre!

  7. It really just does nothing for me. It is interesting reading your thoughts here on the different pictures as no matter how much I look it just does not move me sexually
