    The first internet porn I ever saw was on jerry springer`s website and it looked like it was filmed from inside someone`s closet. All you could see was some guy squishing a girl against the bed and his little nut-sack and it traumatized me for weeks. I still have a small fetish of catching other people doing it in public XD
