"Moneyshot" said ...Something like this. I like learning new stuff. I have a shit load of hobbies, this is just one of them. Weirdly though I leave it off my resume. "What do you do in your spare time?" "I animate on SFM. I take lewd, naked models of Harley Quinn from Arkham Asylum and make her suck cock in a bunch of different positions. Sometimes I make her titfuck. I'm working towards getting her drenched in cum, too."
I do all the stuff in SFM because I have an artistic side that needs to come out and play. I see this as a challenge, another profession to become good at. And if I get good feedback and praise, I see that as progress and will work more on becoming better. And when I enjoy and become better at something, it's fun!
"Soraku Fett" said ...I'm not so sure I'd say that we're necessarily "not normal" for what we're doing. Rather, I would say that we're more proactive than others. I feel pretty confident in saying that most people have, at least one time in their lives, wanted to write / direct / star in at least one pornographic film. What's stopping them, then? Stigmata? Money? Resources? Inconvenient location? Lack of proper contacts? Shyness? I would argue that for most people, it's a combination of all of those things. And for most people, they see these roadblocks, and they just give up. But some people are so interested in their ideas, for whatever reason, that they continue to pursue it, looking for alternative avenues to realize them. And some of those people wind up in places like here: computer-generated porn. Here, we don't have to choose to be either a writer, or a director, or a cameraman, or a casting team, or any one thing, on a pornographic set - we get to be all of those. We get (near) absolute control over every aspect of realizing those fantasies that I am certain most everyone has had one time or another. To get there, though, required a bit of proactivity on our end - we had to spend time looking into it, and discovering that these alternative exists. I would elect that is what separates us from the grain - not necessarily "not being normal", but being aware that alternatives must exist and being able and willing to find and investigate said alternatives. Now, whether or not those fantasies that drove us here, as individuals, can be considered "not normal" is an entirely separate issue. I've certainly seen some things I wouldn't consider to be "mainstream deviancies". :P.
I do this because it's unusual. Let's face it, anyone who is here is CLEARLY not a normal human being. But when we have the chance to come together (no pun intended) and share our creations and ideas, we seem to be able to accomplish quite a bit. I don't know about you, but I rather like being one of the odd ones out in society.

I am talking about social stigmata, aka shame or guilt. Stigmata is a plural form of stigma."LordAardvark" said ...I would really hope not, otherwise said person would have bigger problems.
"Soraku Fett" said ...That is exactly what we are... normal. We just openly enjoy our hobby. But there is another norm out there, and that is to not admit that you like porn and even better, be able to make it your self by posing or drawing. Not all got the talent or the stamina to learn it. But make no mistake. Your neighbour or your boss are no different from you what this issue is concerned. They are juts to afraid of getting a bad rep from other people who likes to watch porn but are aslo to afraid of getting a bad rep. Ironic isn't it?
Let's face it, anyone who is here is CLEARLY not a normal human being.
