What is hentai Porn and why is it so popular?
Among the thousands of messages we receive, many are from people who say they are struggling with a different form of pornography, one that they say is just as addictive. Although almost everything we post deals with hardcore sexually explicit images and videos of people having sex, there have been many who say that they are struggling with a form of porn that doesn’t include real human beings at all.
Hentai porn is a relatively new wave of pornographic material that has become extremely popular over the last decade. The word hentai is a word of Japanese origin which is short for hentai seiyoku—a “perverse” sexual desire. In Japanese, the term describes any type of “perverse” or bizarre sexual desire or act. Internationally, hentai is a term used to broadly categorize the genre of anime and manga pornography.
Cartoon porn, particularly hentai, has become increasingly popular and is now one of the most searched terms of internet porn. According to 2019’s Pornhub analytics detailing the most popular search terms on their site, hentai was the second most popular category on the entire site. This is huge, considering how Pornhub received 42 billion site visits last year. Needless to say, this genre of porn is part of the mainstream, now.
The animated porn depicts highly exaggerated sex acts featuring characters with impossibly large body parts and specializes in featuring disturbing fetishes like animal tentacles, children (particularly little girls), and incest. It is common for monsters, demons, animals, giant insects, and plants to rape cartoon women. Women and girls in hentai look like a mixture of adult and child with rosy cheeks and all. The categories of woman and child are blurred because neither is off sexual limits. A consistent theme in hentai is a type of “sexy innocence.” Adult women, teens, and children are fused into one. The large eyes, childlike expressions, and hairless bodies with tiny, petite frames are combined with massive breasts and exaggerated sex acts.
Many hentai fans argue that this type of porn is safer and more ethical to view. After all, they reason, it’s not exploiting real human beings and is not linked to issues associated with real porn like sexual exploitation and human sex trafficking. They claim that because it’s just animation, it is not harmful to the viewer. And while we understand why people have this perception, allow us to offer a different perspective.
