    I recently read some interesting comments from a guy involved in an 'adult' website that specialises in showing the female orgasm in detail. He was basically saying that most of the girls on the site were filmed in the UK and that it was difficult to find natural 'next door' type girls because so many here (that want to appear on such sites) think it's sexy to have extremely prominent tattoos and/or body piercings. He may have been thinking particularly of genital/nipple/tongue rather than belly piercings. He also said that they were intending to do some of their future shoots in Spain, where he hoped that it would be easier to find girls without these.

    The 'message' seemed to be that he felt that UK women were often conforming to a kind of stereotyped 'porn star' look that wasn't fully supported by what the customers wanted. I can identify with his sentiments because whilst fully respecting the right of anyone to have large tattoos or piercings, I personally find it a turn on if a woman does not have them.

    As a little 'market research' exercise here to test this, I'd appreciate it if guys could answer this question:

    In general, if you were looking a girl featured in erotic material, would you find the fact that she had prominent tattoos and piercings:

    a) More of a turn on b) About the same as otherwise c) Less of a turn on

    If you have prominent tattoos/piercings yourself, please say so as it will be relevant to the results, which I'll announce later if there's a good response. If you're a lesbian or bi girl that would look at such material, feel free to answers but please also state that you're female, and indicate if you have prominent tattoos/piercings.

    Make additional points if you wish, but please ensure that the survey question is answered.

    Thanks for all responses!

    Hmmm, I'm not sure they are conforming to a porn stereotype. Body mods are generally quite popular regardless.

    Personally I'm not in to them... I go through phases and think that would be sexy if .... etc but I also at times find them a turn off. So I'd go B.

    Haha...

    Bit formal!

    Do not like piercings, turn off for me.

    I guess one small tattoo wouldn't turn me on or off, but a massive one really would... Just not for me...

    I don't like tattoos on the lower back... I won't use the nasty name but they are just too common in my opinion.

    im a bi female

    but i will answer B

    its all about personaltiy for me to be honest. i dont mind if someone i find arractive has tatoos but theres obvious exceptions.

    if theyre really badly done, or rascist, defamatory or nasty it would be a turn off!

    Unfortunately I got one when drunk. The only real way to cover it up s to link all my ink together in a full Japanese back piece but that's a huge commitment. Anyway back to the OP question I think anything more than belly button and ear piercings and a small tattoo or two is too much for me. I don't see it as a feminine thing and it's a turn off to me to see piercing fanatics and female ink fanatics (This last part is really hypocritical of me but who cares).

    I may not have made it clear that the line about conforming to the porn stereotype referred specifically to women actually appearing in porn and not the general population.

    Sorry about the formality of the line you mentioned, but I know from previous experience on other forums that people can sometimes respond with interesting but complicated answers that can't actually be included in the results, which somewhat defeats the object!

    Hmmmmm, surely its the person you would find attractive and not the skin they are in? I have 4 tattoos one I hate which is on my leg and was a mistake, 1 on my forearm, 1 on by shoulder and 1 on my shoulderblade. They are not huge but I would like more. i dont like anything tacky but I also have my tongue pierced and would love to have my clit hood pierced. I do have problems with people openly voicing their likes and dislikes about personal tastes.... what if somone had a very large burn accros their body..... would that be considered hidious??

    Ermmmm is this again a formal questionaire? Thing is that when post are made then people often feel the need to make personal comments.

    I'd respectfully respond that whilst I'd agree entirely in relation to what makes someone attractive as a human being, the 'survey' is entirely geared towards testing the validity of the opinions of the guy quoted in terms of piercings/tattoos in erotic material - so it would be difficult to argue that skin is irrelevant in this context.

    I'm not inviting anyone to be disparaging about tattoos or piecings - in fact one of my dearest female friends has beautifully designed tattoos over substantial parts of her body!

    No worries about the formality! I just don't think a forum is the greatest place to get unbiased representative samples, especially not with the wierdos here!

    You might like the person or indeed love them but that does not make everything they do/wear/are sexually attractive, if Ad dressed as a Nazi (I've lost! [No, I'm not Max Mosely]) then I think it's justifiable if I don't find it attractive.

    I may not find a burn attractive, and that would be the general consensus, hence why someone might find it embarrassing or some suck... it doesn't mean it cannot represent something on an emotional level I may like.

    I did basically envisage it as formal questionnaire, but I didn't want to try and rule out further comments, especially as people tend to make them anyway! I certainly hope that it will NOT result in unpleasant personal comments; in fact before I started the thread I looked up another here relating to piercings, which gave me the impression that this is a broad-minded forum where that wasn't likely to happen. If I'm proved wrong, I apologise, and appeal to all to REFRAIN FROM MAKING ANY SUCH REMARKS!

    I'm sure you have a point, but to be honest I'm too reserved to randomly select people in the street, to ask them how they feel about large tattoos and body piercings in erotic material!

    Well it's possibly the gayest thing anyone has ever said to me... That's a start!

    I'll start practising with the buttplugs though, just in case...

    I don't have any tattoos or piercings, and generally I find tattoos on women a turn-off. Whilst I appreciate that a lot of people choose tattoos for more than just the fashion aspect, it's also the case that they are currently considered a fashion accessory. I'm not against the idea of tattoos full stop - there are some examples of tattoos that are undeniably beautiful artistic works, but they are the tiny minority.

    However, just to throw a small spanner in the works, I do find some piercings sexy. I couldn't tell you exactly what is or isn't - tongue piercings definitely are (though any amateur psychologists out there will doubtless tell me this is probably a perfect example of imprinting - the OH has a tongue piercing), and some lip piercings - not so much nose or other facial. Ear piercings - not really a turn-on in themselves, but nice earrings can complete a sexy outfit.

    Body piercings - not fussed one way or the other. I haven't had any particular experience myself, but I understand that people who choose to have body piercings more often than not do so for the way it feels, rather than the way it looks. I think I'd probably be a little apprehensive about going near a lady who was sporting jewellery 'down below' - not least from the self-preservation aspect - but if the effect of that jewellery was to increase sexual pleasure, then I'm pretty sure that would be damned sexy.

    Sorry if that spoils the survey - probably better put me down as an 'undecided'...
