For quite some time I’ve been struggling to understand how so many people can seem to prefer animated pornography to live action pornography. Now, I don’t condone the viewing of either, but the appeal to the latter at least makes sense to me. The former, however, doesn’t make any sense at all. How can somebody find a drawing sexy? Well, science may actually provide the answer. This post will have two sections.

The first is scientific fact and the second is a conclusion I’m making based on these facts which can be verified by a multitude of internet and written sources on your own time. The second is a theory of mine. I’m deducting a conclusion from the scientific facts. Okay, so here’s the first part.

Although nurture can certainly influence our sexual preferences nature also plays an undeniable role. Men and women are both innately designed to identify and desire certain biological characteristics in the opposite sex which signal reproductive health.

Men are biologically programmed to find large eyes attractive in women. This is because the female hormone which promotes reproductive health in females, estrogen, also hampers bone growth in the brow. As a result women with large portions of estrogen, and thus a healthy reproductive tract, also tend to have larger, bolder, and more prominent eyes. Women with wastes significantly narrower than the hip are also attractive to men because fat deposited on a woman’s body is also controlled by estrogen and this shape results from the ideal portion of estrogen.

Women are drawn to prominent brows and angular facial features. This is because these attributes are caused by large amounts of testosterone. This is also why many women find prematurely bald men attractive, because early balding also signals a large portion of testosterone.


Now for the second part.

I think that animators intentionally take this into account to make their characters more sexually attractive.


In this image you see a female with eyes that are not only exaggeratedly large in ratio to the rest of the head, they’re also intentionally given an odd color to make them even more noticeable. As mentioned before prominent and large eyes are a biological signal DESIGNED to tell the male body that a viable mate is nearby.



Hentai girls are also typically drawn with extremely large breasts and prominent hips. This creates the perfect hour glass contour characteristic and once again men are designed to be aroused by these signals of biology.




As you can see in this image, the animated male specimens have sharply angled chins and noses and lage foreheads.

It is therefore my deduction that people are drawn to hentai because it uses biological signals to excite the system. In other words, there’s a real biological reason why some people may prefer hentai to real life women.

lol well this is better than those typical religion threads here~

OT: I've been kinda wondering the same thing why people like looking at a cartoon vs. a actual human being. maybe a animated character satisfies their perverted desire or something. like the way they draw these female characters in hentai is what they're attracted to.

Yes this breaks the mold of the typical threads here anyways I believe when a guy knows what a guy likes. So yea your right when they draw the cartoon characters they draw the pretty eyes, nose, body in the most attractive way. Lets be honest we are guys if we see something attractive either it be animated or real it is a turn on. Lol how many guys was attracted to Lara Croft from Tomb Raider when she first came out on the playstation? I also think this comes from watching too much anime as well as most artist draw the majority of their girls pretty which nice bodies. I dont "pleasure" myself to anime but I can see where it comes from.

I think this has more of an effect on men the women as we are attractive to anything that looks good. Although many women have their preferences but the majority of guys dont give a damn as long as the figure and face is nice we will "jump on it". Dude even a racist who hates black people would sleep with a black women who looks good. Why you think those slave masters was having sex with some of their slaves. I think it is because of our "third leg" we get attracted to things such as this.

I have to disagree with you. Hentai isn’t actually a turn on for me. Really, it can be a turn off since I view it as bizarre. This being said, it certainly can get my mind in the gutter and THAT can turn me on. But, if I were to fantasize about a woman she certainly wouldn’t be a drawing. She’d probably be Selma Hayek:



Joking, although she is essentially an amalgam of ever positive attribute in the spectrum of human characteristics. So, yeah. Suggestive drawings can put me in the mood it’s not a direct thing. It’s just that I’m a man and it’s easy to get my mind on other things. But, really, I don’t find anything attractive about the anime itself. Actually, I find most of the drawings to be poorly done. Then again, the MGS game certainly comes close to getting me going...

hentai can please anyone's sexual desires and fetishes because since the characters are animated, they can look perfect to how viewers want to see it. there aren't many porn stars with ginormous boobs(i'm talking about abnormally large breasts), they can't magically grow penises(this fetish really makes me shudder), and they're most likely not going to be tentacle raped or having sex with aliens; now there might be some pornos that have that, but i think the majority doesn't...correct me if i'm wrong. i don't watch porn on a regular basis.

basically, hentai is anything you want that real life porn stars don't have. hentai can be as graphic and vulgar as you want it to be. i'm not saying one is better than the other, i'm just discussing the possible appeal for hentai.

I think some hentai titles is more of like a child pornography so that's why people tend to get drawn with it than actual porn stars

I love my anime porn lol and still have over 3 gigs worth of anime porn and dojujins and sue me if i like it . Real women always hurt me in the end and most 3d porn is just plain boring, I love the tentacle rape loli, shota and yuri.

^Lol if it floats your boat nothing wrong every guy on CR has watched hentai and probably has some on their computer so dont feel bad.

How was everyone first introduced to hentai? Well my story was in the 9th grade back when DBZ was extremely popular. In fact I think it was DBZ that opened up the world of anime to the west. Anyway some kid bought a picture he printed on the bus as a joke of Bulma giving oral to Vegeta. I had no idea people would draw cartoon characters doing this activity so to further my curiousity I searched the internet and in there I found pokemon hentai, sailormoon, lol the simpsons and a whole bunch of viruses and spyware made its way on my computer.

i agree with jamfoxs too. i first learned about hentai in high school actually. a friend showed it to me, & i was grossed out. i know the saying, "to each his own," but how can anyone just sit & watch crappy cartoon porn or even live porn? i really think it's for lonely &/or pathetic people's entertainment.
