Interracial Porn Tackles the Unknown, Badly

I have always been attracted to white women. I mean, I have always been attracted to most women, regardless of color. But if I had a “type”, a physical preference I would lean toward, it would be girls that are white.

It’s easy to claim that my attraction is the result of going to a predominantly white high school. But that wouldn’t be accurate. From the first day I realized I was attracted to girls (which was in kindergarten), I favored white girls over those who were black.

As a kid, this wasn’t a big deal. Children tend not to pay attention to color aside from casually noticing that not everyone looks the same (unless they are raised in a household where hate is expressed). But as you get older and realize that past standards of culture find interracial relationships to be taboo, pursuing people of another race becomes murky.

It’s hard to tell who is open to dating people of another race and who isn’t. You just cross your fingers and start chatting. I mean, shooter’s shoot, right?

Now I could get into a bigger discussion about interracial dating and society’s acceptance of it, but there is a reason why this blog is called Pornucate. We’re not here to talk about interracial dating. We’re here to talk about interracial porn and what its popularity says about us as porn viewers.

What is interracial porn?

On the surface, defining this category of porn seems SO simple. Interracial porn doesn’t follow the definition of interracial which describes couples and relationships where the individuals are of a different race. The most popular forms of interracial porn focus on individuals of two races: African-American and Caucasian, or as I will define moving forward, black and white.

Technically, any porn involving participants of different races should be called “interracial porn”. If an Asian actress does a scene with a white guy, that is interracial. But funny enough, we just throw that in the Asian category because how else would we have an Asian category.

Interracial porn is primarily focused on the sex black men and women have with partners of different races. And most of the time, the partner is white. The emphasis is on the contrast of colors, not necessarily that the individuals come from different cultural backgrounds. Doing that is too conscious and requires too much thinking, and there is little time for that when we are jerking off.

What ideas are conveyed in interracial porn?

It’s easier to ask this question than to ask why interracial porn is popular. I don’t think interracial porn itself is all that popular. What’s popular is seeing people of color have sex as opposed to seeing the same white faces over and over again.

We watch porn for a multitude of reasons, but there are two majors one I think carry some truth for all people. One, porn can depict sex and women well within our reach, giving us something realistic and attainable to watch. That’s why ebony porn is mostly searched in states with the largest relative black populations, and granny porn becomes more popular as porn viewers get older.

Two, porn depicts the sex and women we never see. If you have never had sex with a person of a different race or even know what their nude body would like, porn can visually take care of that. Porn doesn’t just cover the sexuality we don’t talk about. It also covers the sexuality we have no knowledge of yet are interested in.

We want to know how people of color fuck. We want to know the physical attributes they bring to sex. And the juxtaposition of watching them fuck the standard (aka someone white) only highlights the unknown even more. Porn, as a compelling and misguided form of sex education, teaches us about sex with people of color.

So what does interracial porn tell us? For starters, proper white girls having sex with black men is taboo. Not that some petite, pretty blond can’t have sex with a black guy, but if society was told about it, society would be caught off guard a bit.

This is something we envision the “ghetto white girl” doing. As Urban Dictionary puts it, this is the white girl that seems to identify more with black culture. She hangs around black people, she has picked up what the country sees as typical black dialect, and all the black dudes like her.

That’s not the girl shopping at the local boutique, spending her father’s money (see, stereotyping can be fun). As black men, we have always been told that this type of girl, shopping girl, is off limits unless we become doctors, or lawyers, or Ivy League grads. But if porn is right, and why wouldn’t it be, this type of girl actually desires black dick and will be a bit aggressive in getting it.

And about that black dick: it’s always big. Always. Like “the size of your forearm” big, or “Guinness Book of World Records” big, or “large enough to beat you with it” big.

You have to understand the type of men these girls have been sleeping with up to this point: white, normal, nothing special, regular size penises, regular sex. These girls want to get dominated by something large and strong, preferably packaged on a thug wearing Timberland boots, or a rapper, or an athlete. Because there is nothing more entertaining than the girl from Buckhead getting nailed by the guy from Bankhead. And if you’re not from Atlanta you totally didn’t get that line.

But the very things that interracial porn perpetuates are the same things that make it popular. It’s visually pleasing. It’s entertaining, sometimes in the most ignorant way possible. It’s the unknown. It’s different. It just works.

Which pornstars are well-known for interracial scenes?

Sites like Blacked and the Dogfart Network, and production studios like West Coast Productions have opened the door to a wider range of girls doing interracial porn. There was a time when interracial porn was just like anal, the niche pornstars get into when the time is right in their careers. Now it’s becoming much more common and kind of losing its luster.

Go back to the “ghetto white girl” types. They were the common choices for interracial scenes, girls like Kelly Divine, Flower Tucci, and Virgo Peridot. Now more girls are getting in on the action.

It may be easier to ask which pornstars are not known for doing interracial scenes. I’ll give you a hint: her name is Alexis Texas. But at least now you can add girls like Riley Reid, Amirah Adara, and Stella Cox to the list of pornstars doing interracial scenes on a more common basis. So someone like Alexis Texas not doing interracial porn isn’t a big deal or point of discussion.

And yes, I should probably bring up the black, male actors. But my gut tells me there will one day be a post on BBC. We can just wait till then.
