A couple of years ago, big butts were making the buzz on the porn scene and millennials were crazy about them. However, the new trend in porn is surprising, as it looks more like Spongebob and less like Nicki Minaj. Statistics have revealed that millennials are beginning to love cartoon porn. PornHub reported that millennials watch hentai now at about 144% more than our parents did. In case you’re wondering, hentai is the Japanese word for cartoon erotica.

There are several reasons why millennials have a peculiar interest in cartoon porn. A psychologist, Dr. Leon Seltzer, shared that porn shouldn’t be limited by the constraints of reality.

Certain fetishes that used to be dangerous and impossible have suddenly have an outlet. There are various types of hentai, which cuts across nearly every porn category possible. The extreme hentai includes – woman growing penises abruptly, anthropomorphic animals, BDSM, and erotic game adaptations.

There are several artists and illustrators that work within the hentai community. DOXOlove, a hentai artist, said that people that enjoy cartoon erotica love it because they consider real porn “boring”. It could also be that videos of real humans having sex, no matter how appealing they seem, doesn’t satisfy someone’s particular sexual desires.

In hentai, there are no limitations and the only boundaries are those set by your own imagination.

Stephen Snyder, a New York-based sex therapist, observed that cartoon porn is mainly about taking the novelty ante up a notch. He pointed out that regular, guy/girl porn is leaving millennials jaded and they are starting to opt for kinkier options.

It might no longer be as exciting to watch a video of people having sex. People are using their imaginations and technology as leverage to foray into unchartered grounds in the erotic frontier.

Don’t think that cartoon erotica is only about impossible situations, its thrill also includes impossible bodies. Cartoons and hentai allow for men and women with unbelievable genitalia sizes. These huge body features will make it practically impossible for such a character to function properly in real life.

Additionally, it is a known fact that people often go crazy with nostalgia, and the hentai industry has capitalized on this. Most cartoon porn is based on characters that were famous when millennials were younger. Many millennials still have the hots for their teen and childhood obsessions. Hundreds of popular fictional characters have been featured in cartoon porn. The biggest names include The Mario Brothers, Doug, Superman and Wonder Woman, and even good ‘ole Harry Potter.

In case you enjoy watching cartoon porn, don’t feel weird about it. You’ll be surprised by the number of your friends who are secretly into hentai as well. It could even be your partner. Consider these the next time you check out your Simpsons porn.
