The "entertainment" has always been an infamous subject matter that many shy away from discussing. Even with today’s generation easily exposed to adult content, it is still believed to be something that should be left in the shadows and only talked about in the constraints of close friends or spouses. The numbers are staggering when it comes to this type of content. Researchers say that 30% of web traffic is adult related. Furthermore, nearly 64% of young adult males and 18% of females use adult entertainment each week. With numbers this high one would think p**nography would be acceptable to discuss and be labeled as a normal thing to watch. Nevertheless, many are opposed to watching adult entertainment and considered it an immoral act. For others, it is simply considered as human nature.
This brings us to the article at hand. The hushed subject matter is also not particularly mentioned in Hollywood. The wrong slip up could be problematic to one’s career, especially with the way mainstream media can turn a story around to deliberately damage a celebrity. Several stars are for the idea, much like any other non-famous individual they enjoy exploring their sexual fantasies. Though, there are stars who oppose the idea as well, citing that adult films give individuals unrealistic expectations and can be destructive to a relationship. Whether they are pro or oppose the idea, it is interesting to see how these celebs feel about the matter. Here at 12 celebrities who watch adult content.
12 Amanda Seyfried
Amanda Seyfried appeared in the film Lovelace which was a biopic of former adult star Linda Lovelace. While doing promotional events for the film, it came to no surprise that Seyfried was often asked about her views on the adult film industry. Her views on the matter were more conservative, although she did admit to watch it at a very young age. In an interview with GQ, Seyfried admitted to watching adult films at six years old: “It was the first time I’d ever seen a p*nis, and I remember it being very graphic, and I remember when he came it was so terrifying.”
11 Ryan Reynolds
The often comical Ryan Reynolds gave people an insight to the brand of adult entertainment he enjoyed as a child. On Conan, Reynolds discussed his activities staying home from school: “I always found that so bizarre, that the worst thing that they could do to you is make you not go to school. Like I’m 15 years old, as though sitting at home all day mastur****** to Spanish soap operas is supposed to teach me a lesson.” Many teens can relate to what Reynolds had to say, however a Spanish soap opera is a weird choice to say the least.
10 10.Aubrey O'Day
As a celebrity you can make several friends in many different industries, and one of them can also be the adult entertainment industry. Singer Aubrey O’Day befriended Jenna Jameson, and their friendship has grown and the two are now considered best friends. However, because of this newfound friendship, a dilemma arose and O’Day had to change the adult entertainment content that she watched as Jameson was in several of the movies she enjoyed: “I watched Jenna Jameson before she was my BFF, I don’t watch her anymore, I was mastur****** one night to, like, A*** Sex Compilation #3 or whatever and she was in it and I was like, ‘Oh no!’ I had to turn it off, it was horrible.”
9 Juliette Binoche
Juliette Binoche shares the opinion of individuals that are opposed to watching adult films. Binoche related the act to that of animal lust. For women, according to Juliette, sex was an intimate thing that had feelings and intense connotations attached to it. Though, when men used it to express raw desire, especially how it’s shown in adult movies, it was something that women could never understand: “Lovemaking for me is related to feelings, and sensations with feelings, and so when you don’t have feelings it becomes animal-like because you’re not in touch with your heart.” In addition, Binoche said she would be irritated if her husband would watch adult content.
8 Lily Allen
Never one to shy away from controversies, it’s no surprise that Lily Allen enjoys adult entertainment (she has also made the public know about her love for it). With the hectic travelling schedule as a musician, Allen spends a lot of time away from home. While abroad, she admitted to watching adult films. Moreover, according to Allen, Japanese adult films is the most perverted of them all: “When I travel around the world there often isn’t anything to watch on TV. Especially when they don’t speak English. But watching p*rn is fine as it doesn’t need words. It’s sort of universal. I watch a lot of it and in my opinion the p*rn in Japan is very sick and twisted.”
7 Amy Poehler
The former SNL star has admitted to watching adult entertainment on Howard Stern’s radio show. Like numerous other times on Stern’s show, the topics got steamy, and Poehler revealed she is pretty wild in the bedroom and was currently watching several different adult films: “I like my p*rn like I like my comedy done by professionals, women who are at the top of their game.” After a decade of monotonous monogamy, Poehler divorced actor Will Arnett. The newly single Poehler gave insight to her dating life by explaining her date with Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor John Stamos, though, she stated she blew the chance to sleep with him because she was unprepared for the occasion.
6 Scarlett Johansson
Co-starring in the 2013 film Don Jon, Johansson gave her thoughts about p**n and how it can be healthy and productive in a relationship: “If I found out my boyfriend watched that much p*rn as Jon, the lead character in the film 'Don Jon' does, I would be totally flabbergasted, for sure. But I think p*rn, like anything else, can be enjoyed. It can be productive for both men and women." Johansen clearly has taken a frontward view on this type of content and has accepted it in her relationships compared to other celebrities who think twice about speaking about the scandalous matter.
5 Joseph Gordon-Levitt
As the film Don Jon was mentioned above, Joseph Gorden-Levitt created and starred in the film. The movie portrays how individuals can be changed by modern mass media, and Levitt’s character was influenced heavily by p**nography. Gordon’s personal view of the matter is subtle: “I certainly don’t watch p*rn like the character does. I won’t say I’ve never watched it. But, personally, I’ve been much more heavily influenced by romantic movies than p**nography.” Gordon’s view is one that many individuals can relate to, as at times adult films can be ludicrous compared to reality, whereas romantic movies provide a more realistic element of sex appeal.
4 Miley Cyrus
Shockingly, Miley Cyrus is actually opposed to the idea of watching adult content. With Cyrus having the perception of a wild “bad girl”, fans were stunned about where she stood on this subject matter. Cyrus believes watching adult entertainment causes men to develop unrealistic expectations about real life sex. Once men enter relationships they don’t enjoy the sex due to the adult stars they imagine. Cyrus also explained how women are equivalent to men in their expectations from watching romantic movies. Women build up unrealistic expectations that no man can live up to. Cyrus went on to say, “Guys watch too much p*rn. Those girls don’t exist. They’re not real girls. And that’s like us watching romance movies. That’s girl p*rn, because, like, those guys do not exist.”
3 John Mayer
Even heartthrob John Mayer is an avid adult entertainment viewer. In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Mayer explained: “I am the new generation of mastur*****! I’ve seen it all. Before I make coffee. I’ve seen more butt holes than a proctologist does in a week.” Mayor also revealed that his fame has contributed to getting him rejected by females, several of them like to exploit the fact to their friends that they’ve rejected one of the best looking celebs out there. In addition, Mayor also stated that these rejections usually make way for him to end up on RedTube before his night is over.
2 Justin Timberlake
As one of the best looking actors in Hollywood, it came as a shock when Justin revealed he hated doing sex scenes and felt awkward acting out such intimate scenes. However, Justin has no problem watching others get steamy in the bedroom (like most guys do). In an interview while doing promotional work for the movie Friends with Benefits, as you might expect many questions were asked about bedroom affairs. Timberlake confessed about watching adult content bluntly: “I’m a guy, so I like p*rn and sex scenes.” This is an answer that most guys give when this question arises. It may be in a sense stereotypical, however, for the most part it’s the truth.
1 Cameron Diaz
Unlike some other Hollywood starlets who hide behind a neurotic fixation, Cameron Diaz isn’t one of them and is very open with her pleasure for adult content. Diaz has openly revealed her love for it on Jimmy Kimmel, saying: “I love p*rn. You know what I love about hotels? How discreet they are. They always give you that little thing at the bottom - 'Your room will be charged the same as any other room. Titles will be used.” Diaz has taken a positive view on the matter, and her comments could have gotten her in hot water in Hollywood, though instead, it seems to have made her more desirable.
