I remember first coming across porn in the form of some Playboy magazines I think in the 3rd or 4th grade. When I was around 10 my friends and I would shoplift Playboy magazines and take them out to the woods to look through them. We kept them hidden out there. I would return to look at them all the time.
I think by 15 or 16 I had a pretty good collection of adult magazines stashed under my bed and in my closet. I think by 17 or 18 I had several hundred stored in duffel bags under my bed and in my closet. Pretty much every family member stumbled across them at some point. My mom was cool, basically she said “Whatever, just make sure your brother doesn’t find them” He probably did as well but I didn’t know about it. Any other family member who stumbled across it just acted like they weren’t there.
When I turned 18 I was able to rent pornographic movies. I would sometimes buy them but they were pretty expensive when you had a part time job and college. Those were the days of VHS. I saved up and bought a 2nd VCR. I would then rent porn movies from the local video stores, and copy them for my personal collection. I started to get really efficient with it by just copying the “good” parts for my personal collection. So I was able to fit several movies on each video tape. I would buy the 8 hour tapes and use the lowest quality setting to get the most porn onto the tapes. I was able to accumulate about 30 – 50 file boxes stacked 3 deep with 8 hour VHS tapes of porn. I really like facial cumshots so I would record and rewind those so it would play 3-5 times in a row. I also took advantage of many of the video stores going out of business and selling their movies for cheap. I think all told I had several hundred 8 hours VHS tapes, several hundred high quality VHS adult movies, and maybe 100-200 adult DVDs.
Coinciding with the middle to late period of my VHS and DVD movie collection I also started collecting internet porn. I came on board to that in the late 90’s starting with dial up modems, CompuServe and AOL. I remember waiting 10 minutes or so for pornographic pictures to come up on my screen. It would take forever for pictures, and especially movies, to download. Sometimes your modem connection would drop and you would have to start the download all over again after you reconnected. Internet porn really began to get good with DSL modems. I remember how wonderful it was to just click on a thumbnail and a large picture pop up on the screen in all its erotic glory. I’ve collected thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands pornographic pictures and movies. I store them in external hard drives. I recently upgraded to a NAS and have about 4 TB of porn copied onto it and counting. I am estimating about 6 – 8 TBs of porn total. If I watched all the movies I had back to back it would take me years to watch them all. But I love the feeling of owning and possessing the porn. I am a collector.
I usually rotate through several monthly memberships to the porn sites I like. I then download the videos to my various external drives for later consumption. I love porn. It’s been a part of my life for over 30 years.
