    Its not a hard concept just some either are just trying to pick a fight or just dont get it although its pretty simple question. If you are ok with labeling these movies torture porn would you be ok with comedy porn or drama porn? Same concept really but I bet people who love comedies would not want them labeled that at all.
    I think we just got a bit of track. I personally don't think the word porn should be attached. It just conjures up images of people having very violent, torturous s3x. No. I think a new category or sub classification (on the horror genre) of torture needs to be introduced. I feel the term porn is more like a catch phrase fad. IyKWIM.

    ETA. I mean When the term porn is added at the end of another word. kind of the same as when someone refers to Facebook r@pe. I don't mean porn itself is a catch phrase fad.

    I think it should just be left as what it is. Horror. You pretty much know what your getting, and if it says R rating, you know its going to be worse than a MA movie....

    Default Torture Porn?

    Well I know it's not PC to not be liberal in regards to freedom of speech, but I think they SHOULD be banned. Rape, child porn, bestiality is banned, but sure you can watch people being tortured to extreme gratuitous levels then chopped into pieces. I'm sure this will offend but I reckon there is something a bit amiss with you if you enjoy that level of pain and violence. I don't care whether there is a plot or not. What kind of person enjoys that? I hope in never desensitised enough to be able to watch that kind of rubbish. And comparing it to love or romance movies is absurd. No one is being brutally murderded in a rom-com.

    Actually rape is not banned and there are many movies with rape in it, these rape scenes make me very uncomfortable and I have a hard time watching it Last House on the Left comes to mind, just the topic of rape in movies make me uncomfortable.

    You are welcome to think whatever you like if you think there is something wrong with people who like it that's just your opinion no reason for anyone to be offended. There are also rape fetish porn sites that are legal, wrong IMO but legal. Comparing them to child porn and bestiality isnt right because they are no where near that. None of these movies show children getting tortured.

    As far as what kind of person likes that maybe others will pipe in but I will tell you I do. I have 5 children, healthy relationship with no arguing, I love animals (did dog rescue for 10 years) and am very compassionate, I will help anyone that needs it even if I can. I once bought 3 bags of non perishable food and a bag of dog food for a homeless guy on a street corner. For years I went to the homeless shelter to feed the homeless every Christmas and thanksgiving. This is one of the types of people that like these movies. Hopefully more that like it will pipe in on what type of person like these movies. I am a very caring loving person in life.

    Personally, i'm a big fan off horror movies but human centipede should be banned - not sure if anyone has seen it but it takes disturbing to a whole other level ... they released the sequel to it but thankfully it was banned before it got released in Australia (the last i heard) the only reason i watched human centipede is because i was bet $20 that i couldn't sit through the entire movie - well, i watched it all but it made me

    Thanks for your response bracketed, what is it that you like about these movies, I know I must sound ignorant but I genuinely don't know and am interested to?

    I had heard it was banned here but video easy had it thats where we rented it, it was much worse and warped than the first. They had to convert it to black and white because it was making people ill. So you can get it, but if you have a weak stomach I wouldnt
