    LM Memoirs

    no new content just thought I'd revisit his previous posts.

    Welcome to the Panel
    Well here you are. This is the last step, isnít it? Itís alright, we understand. Weíve been through it all before. Your picture collection is starting to rival the population of the earth and your bookmarks folder is starting to attract publishing deals. Youíre going into debt to pay off the credit card bills for all those subscriptions and there isnít enough time in your life to physically watch the amount of movies you just downloaded. Maybe, just maybe, youíve even braved the funny looks from the cashier lady at that shady shop down the back street. Oh, and that extra hard drive you just bought? Yeah, we know what thatís for.

    But it wasnít enough, was it? There was one last barrier to break down, nagging at you in the back of your mind. One last foothold to miss on your spiral into addiction. You came to a hentai blog. God knows youíve done everything else with the stuff. Guess itís time to try thinking about it.

    Welcome to the Hentai Panel: An in-depth examination of all topics relating to the creation, consumption, and culture of everyoneís favourite pastime. Or the random ramblings of an amateur artist with too much free time. Same difference. Iím your host, linemarvel, the extra ordinary hentai artist. Stay tuned for weekly updates and feel free to leave whatever deranged comments you might have.
    Don't Feel Too Bad
    There's always someone weirder than you.

    (and if that's as disturbing to you as it is to me, be careful what you click on in this post)

    Chances are if you are reading this, you've just come from the land of tentacle monsters, bucket loads of semen, and girls having their internal organs stretched to extremities. Chances are that to you, weird is familiar. Weird has been conquered. Weird bows down to your psyche as its supreme commander.

    But high atop the proverbial throne of oddities you neglect to see the hidden faction of weirdos, lurking deep in the dark recesses of the net, poised to overthrow your rule. It would appear, in fact, that the title of weirdest hentai fetish is much sought after. Much sought after indeed.

    As it turns out, you really don't need to dig deep for this kind of stuff. Although that's arguable. What is weirder, after all? Girls sucking on giant tentacles or their own giant penises? Does a picture become stranger if not only is a woman having her womb expanded but you can also see a cross section of the process? At what point does getting aroused by armpit hair go beyond the level of strangeness that tank crushing mammeries have?

    Can any of this even be quantified?

    I say it can (and I'm an authority, didn't you know?). But it has to be done in steps. Systematically dissected and analyzed. After all, trying to directly compare lolicon robot sex with eye socket fucking is not recommended. It has been known to cause brain combustion.

    But can you believe that to this day no one has properly documented this process? For shame, hentai community, for shame. Luckily I'm here to rectify the situation. It'll just take me a week to do it.

    And if you'd like to weigh in on the matter in the meantime, leaving a comment or email is a good way to do it.

    Is this like, a nostalgia thing? Or am I missing the point.

      well members as old as me remember that the reason this site originally existed was because of these blog posts. LM can stay in his hiddy hole but the intelligent discussion about taboo has laid low long enough. i figured we could work through the posts about the "spiral" over the next some. talk about the intricacies of taboo.

        Should we start with something specific?, I find this a topic of interest.

            Re: LM Memoirs

            Well let's start with something basic, the worst of the lot, There's gore,
            and scat, I think it's safe to say that those are round about the top tier for taboo these days, Stuff like Swap.avi and such, how does somebody start getting attracted to things like that? And how does it start, progress, and eventually end?

              I'd really like to participate in this since I find the psychology behind fetishes really fascinating, but I have no inclinations to either gore or scat. I really don't understand either one.

                conversation has not started, next post...
                Why Real Women Are Ugly
                ďWho the hell gets off on cartoons? Why donít those freaks look at real women?Ē

                Sound familiar? Thatís what I hear every time the subject of hentai comes up in a real life conversation. And about as many times as I hear those words, Iím smiling and nodding and agreeing with them. Does that make me a liar? Sure, but Iíll be damned if conformity doesnít make my life so much easier.

                But thatís a topic for another day. For now, letís just deal with the questions:

                Q. Who looks at hentai?
                A. Me, you, and most of Japan.

                Q. Why donít I look at real pornography?
                A. There is very little porn that has real women in it. Or rather, as I like to say, ďI used to like porn before I learned to use PhotoshopĒ.

                First off, a picture of a real woman is not a real woman. Itís a picture. Itís ink on a page. Itís pixels on a screen. Whatís the difference between a picture of a real woman and a cartoon woman? Trick question. Theyíre the same thing.

                Secondly, pictures of women are almost always photoshopped to hell and back. Ever seen a porno mag? Itís a bunch of paintings, not photographs. The women are super-deformed. It looks grotesque. Women donít have pencil thin waists, flawless skin, gravity defying breasts and perfectly sculpted hair. Thatís called ďspecial effectsĒ, not reality.

                Third, even in real life the average porn star is not a ďrealĒ woman. Sheís usually half plastic. Breast implants, lip implants, coloured contacts, several pounds of make-up (covering the entire body), tricky lighting schemes, buckets of hairspray, etc.

                In fact, the entire process of making porn is based around making the women look ďbetterĒ than reality. The problem is, we know what reality looks like. Ever heard of the uncanny valley? If not, look it up. It applies. Altered women arenít hot, theyíre gross. They offend my sensibilities. They just are not sexy*

                So how does this all not apply to hentai as well? Hentai is fake from the start. Itís accepted that youíre dealing with fantasy from the moment pencil hits paper. There is no trickery, there is no uncanny valley, and there are no unnatural alterations. Itís just fantasy, not altered reality, and fantasy is hot.

                *Of course Iím generalizing. I do look at ďrealĒ porn, but itís got to be tastefully edited at least. Videos suffer less from this problem, but it doesnít stop the women from looking freakish a lot of the time.
                It's hard to take the high ground when you're making a mountain out of a mole hill.

                  Ugh, the number of people that I've tried to explain hentai to. It always comes back to the same thing - people are weirded out or intimidated by things that they do not understand.

                  The most efficient way is to just say "Hot steamy novels can be hot right? Especially for girls? Well it's just like that, but adding an illustration of your fantasy to the mix. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words. In porn your fantasies are limited by the capabilities of the human body and the acting capabilities of the porn stars. In hentai, anything is possible."

                    Re: LM Memoirs

                    Maybe it's just my unique experiences, though I doubt it since everyone has obviously had their own life experiences. I've never had to explain to people what I liked or why. So I've never felt that much connection to what LM said on his forum.

                    Actually since I've been into hentai I've yet to find anything that repulsed me, I don't know maybe I've already convinced myself that I've seen the worst humanity has to offer. It may be true though since I've straight up been accused of not caring anymore bu people that I honestly trust.

                      Re: LM Memoirs

                      So why do I enjoy hentai more than I do regular porn... I guess it's the surrealism that gets to me. Just like the way people like video games, I like hentai because it's alright to think the way you do when you see it. You can enjoy thinking about rape and you're not a psychopath for doing that. I had a debate with a friend of mine who thinks me looking at hentai is stupid. The basic layout of the conversation went like this:

                      Spoiler

                      And then at that point he stopped using logic and the debate turned into a stupid banter that you probably wouldn't care to see. Of course, the conversation was nowhere near as neat as this and involved a lot more of my friend calling me a faggot(?) for liking hentai and me constantly poping up guro to make him squirm.

                      Anyway, the point of that overly-lengthy conversation is that the only reason why people think hentai's sick is because 1) It's Japanese and Japan's got the "weirdo" reputation. 2) We're nowhere near as desensitized to sex as we are to violence. 3) I didn't mention this in the conversation, but it's also because nobody wants to be the guy who's so socially inept that they fantasize over impossible things to do to others rather than just go out and meet them.

                      ... Wait, what was the main point of what I was saying?

                        Ahhh now I remember why I liked LM so much.

                        He reminded me of myself.

                        Or something like that

                          The friends I have that don't look at hentai, I have tried to explain it to a couple of times, but I have given up, since they think ALL hentai is tentacle/rape/tentacle rape/weird stuff that you would never see in a 'real' porn.

                          A couple of them tried to use that whole 'you're masturbating to something somebody drew LOL' thing, until I pointed out that they both got stiffies any time they saw a female Night/Blood Elf in WoW.

                          Personally, I like hentai because, like Dark said, it's surreal. The characters can get put into situations that never occur in real life. I mean, honestly, when's the last time you saw a girl taking her pet tentacle monster for a walk when it suddenly got 'frisky'?

                            I don't know if I could honestly put a finger on why I like hentai compared to normal porn. Maybe it's just that I have more imagination than most people who don't like it.

                            If they say that masturbating to something drawn is wrong, then how do they explain the looks of any superheroes. I mean why else would someone dress up in spandex to fight crime.

                              Normal porn- a girl paid to moan and groan as someone with a half-stiff thingy groaning like he's been hit over the head with a herring for 30 minute. It's very rare you find a person (or persons) that'll put up a hot enough preformence to make it seem 'legit' and not purposefully breaking the fourth wall to get at the 'viewer'

                              Hentai- Usually has a storyline that rivals the normal porn, but is at least logical in it's pacing and information. Some hentai actually has storylines that rival anime in conception, with artwork quality to match. Sure the subject may involve gangs dragging girls to be sextoys, tentacles taking over the world, or a superhero that gets stronger via gettin raeped, but is in essense another way to try to get rocks off. Probably more successful as you can feel like you're there and yet not, and it's just a cartoon char so no 'permament' harm done.

                              Guess another thing that's semi related to this would be newbies to 40k saying that Slaanensh is nothing but the god of 'carnal' delights, whereas actually they go for any sensation, thus why they got troops.
