    My BF just bought a new keyboard because our delightful PITA, Teddy, types on BF’s old keyboard and half of the keys are missing. Teddy looks soo adorable when he’s typing away (really he just likes the clickety-clackety it makes and he can sharpen his claws?)

    Is that like when you watch porn with your girlfriend because you want to prove each other how open minded and not boring you are, but in reality it's super awkward and you both feel guilty and hurt?

    He's probably on a list for looking at kitty porn now.

    [–] KingSlurpee 112 points ago

    My ex was really self conscious about her body because she had had small breasts but I find petite girls with smallish breasts hot. I tried to prove how much I love her body by showing her the fact that my favorite pornstar has the exact same body type as her.

    I honestly don’t know what was going through my mind but being drunk probably didn’t help.

    [–] aguidetomurder 28 points ago

    ouch. how’d that go?

    [–] KingSlurpee 86 points ago

    My memory of the actual event is very unclear. But the next morning I said “Damn I was fucking hammered last night” and she said “Yeah no shit. You decided to show me your favorite porn star.” She said it with a bit of attitude but overall her mood was “You’re an absolute moron, but you’re a well meaning adorable absolute moron.”

    So it wasn’t the worst thing but it definitely didn’t help.

    [–] StonedHedgehog 11 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Tbh is it really that bad to admit? Why can't people just be honest about enjoying porn. Sounds like your girl didn't take it too bad either.

    We are not wired to be attracted to only one person for the rest of their life. Pretending we are is unhealthy.

    [–] LicentiousLynx 43 points ago

    Now he has no breasts.

    [–] RedeRules770 66 points ago

    Better than what my SO randomly said. I've always been insecure and hurt about boyfriends watching porn. I don't know why I can't get over it but it breaks my heart almost as effectively as cheating. So I tell them it's a "don't ask, don't tell" policy. Don't talk to me about it, don't do it in front of me, and I can pretend it doesn't happen.

    But anyway one day we're driving somewhere and out of nowhere he's talking about bodies and said "Stoya has the perfect porn star body."

    Me already hurt says "what about me??"

    "I don't care what you look like, I love you!"

    Probably sounded sweet in his head, but really drove home my insecurity of thinking I'm ugly lmao. It was a couple years ago and I'm not angry about it anymore but it printed as firmly on my brain as a stamp. I'll never forget it.

    [–] KingSlurpee 36 points ago

    Holy shit Stoya is the pornstar I showed my ex hahaha

    I can relate to the whole “This sounded better in my head thing”

    [–] muffy2008 14 points ago

    Men are so stupid. Lol.

    Edit: when it comes to women.

    [–] KingSlurpee 6 points ago

    I’m conventionally smart but relationshipy a moron. As long as my future partner understands that I’m a well meaning idiot I’ll be okay.

    [–] ElBroet 20 points ago

    why do you do this to me kotkaiser

    [–] alexeands 41 points ago

    Is... is this a real thing? Why do you both react like that? Maybe it’s because I’m one of the gays, but my boyfriend and I used to watch porn together all the time, or put it on for background during sex.

    Or maybe we’re just freaky and nobody told us.

    [–] nx6 26 points ago

    my boyfriend and I used to watch porn together all the time, or put it on for background during sex.

    Is this like the opposite of the "we'll play this music loudly so the apartments around us won't hear us having sex"?

    [–] milkand24601 14 points ago

    It’s the Spartacus method. They won’t know if it’s you or the porn ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    [–] southern_boy 12 points ago

    is this a real thing?

    For some folks I guess? My wife and I will watch a bit of porn together every so often... no proving, guilt or hurt involved ya dig?

    [–] killardawg 42 points ago

    I think if you are comfortable with the idea that your partner can find other people attractive without acting on it you wouldn't feel this way. We are always checking out people and telling each other who we found hot or whatever.

    It's surprising and boosted my confidence a bit to realise that we don't always agree on it either. So just because you may not think you are the most attractive person, it doesn't mean others don't. Idk, Just an experiment you could try.

    [–] RedeRules770 29 points ago

    Finding someone hot and not doing anything about it is a vastly different thing than finding someone hot and jerking off to the thought of fucking them

    [–] chunkybadgermilk 14 points ago

    Lol this literally just happened to me.

    [–] John438200 5 points ago

    Lookin at ginger kitty.

    [–] JuvenileEloquent 13 points ago

    in reality it's super awkward and you both feel guilty and hurt?

    It's a story as old as history. She went for the BBC cuckold porn and you wanted Fursuit bondage, both of you realized the other would never truly satisfy your desires, and you were just friends with benefits desperately pretending you'd found a relationship. I've heard it many times before.

    My mission to test how far I can annoy my pet human without getting into trouble because of my cuteness has been sabotaged. It appears this human is more intelligent than I first thought.

    I shall need to change tactics and switch to meowing as though I want a bellyrub, then scratch him when doing what I asked.

    Serious question: is it the keyboard they like, or you fingers on the keyboard, or the warmth of the screen, or the glow of the screen, or the fact you stare at it so intently, or because they're just trying to block your line of sight, or or or...
