Porn is in the eye of the beholder. Seriously, Porn is all in your mind, and my mind, and every ones mind. :mrgreen:
Each individual defines it differently. So asking for a "yes" or "no" answer to a "shades of Gray" question is kind of .... well, useless.

That scene embodies Hisao as "the guy who only downloads KS because it's cripple porn", because in that scene, he was only interested in getting his dick wet.

And because of this, there's a distinct lack of censorship in said scene, because that fact that Hanako had a working snatch is the only thing Hisao was concerned about.
Shit, and if only there was a massive cumshot scene as well as a bloyjob scene after and before the intercourse, "the guy who only downloads KS because it's cripple porn" would have had a field day!

Honestly, given that people have different morals and view on sex in media, I do not think there is no solid yes or no/wrong or right anwser to this one.

no, i wouldnt call that a "Porn". more like a natural hentai (mainly because all of the "end" parts are mainly showing the upper parts naturally, so i wouldnt really call that a hentai) ant its more of an ecchi to me to be exact. since the whole parts are mainly long and more like a book (thats why this game is more of a visual novel than a hentai game). so no, i wouldnt reallt call it a "Porn" nor a hentai (kinda).

plus, id literally flinch when i hear someone saying a type of natural ecchi and hentai, a porn thing (and if i happen to know them i would just smack them to the head and rant about it all day and night)

I can't fap to it, so no, KS is not porn. :twisted:

Seriously speaking, Katawa Shoujo can't be porn, because your average porno contains at the minimum:

- Blowjobs (KS has none)
- Explicit genital shots before, during and after coitus (Hanako path only)
- Cumshots (KS has none)
- Anal (Emi only, non-explicit, played mostly for giggles)
- Profanity (Very little, mostly from Emi, even then nothing in the vein of the usual "fuck my pussy with that big cock" porn talk)
- Masturbation (pretty tame, Lilly and Rin only)

And on top of that, Katawa Shoujo comes with an honest to God good plot (times 5) where the sexual elements are only about 10% of the whole content, which is something you'll never see in a porno, where the sexual elements are well over 80% of all content. If KS needs to be classified, I'd say it's just a mildly erotic picture book.

When I got to the scene in question, I was so soulshocked and identityappalled that I instantly projectile vomited bilgeblood through the screen, into the virtualworld megamatrix, out through the monitors - and straight onto the laps of fellow KS players.

I wish they would've had the common courtesy to censor Hanako's scarring.

I was wondering what that squishy feeling on my crotch was.

Defining porn is like defining art, everyone is going to have a different opinion on whether something does or does not qualify. Just as someone could photocopy their own backside and call it art, someone would read Katawa Shoujo and call it porn. In fact, I know several people, personally, who would classify it as porn because it includes sexual content.

In my own opinion, however, I would not classify KS as porn, for the same reason I wouldn't classify Lolita as porn, the sex takes a backseat to the story. Yes, there is erotic material to be found within, and no, it is not censored or downplayed in any way, but it is handled with taste and style. And that, I think, is what separates art and literature from blatant pornography. Porn is meant only to titillate, art and literature are meant to provide us with something more, whether that something be awe (The Sistine Chapel, Odysseus), fear (Dante's Inferno, The Garden of Earthly Delights), love (KS, Jane Eyre), and just about any emotion in between.

The purpose of porn is to sexualy arouse right? Then i would say it depends on certain conditions.

So far Emi, hanako and Shizune are the only routes i have completed so far, and i gotta say, Emi and Hanakos H-scenes did not excite me what so ever.
It was magnificent pieces of character development and only made the story better. I gotta say i was quite shocked of the explicitnes of Hanakos H-scene, but it makes sense in a way. She was the one who was hiding her self away, so for her to open her self up like that only enhances her resolve. I nearly cryed when her H-scene unfolder before my eyes. It was just, wrong in a way. :cry: *kudos to the amazing writer(s) btw*

With Emi i just smiled and laughed during the lemonlubescene which gave the her som extra depth in my point of view.

Shizune's H-scene is the only one i think i might did get a hard-on off, but that was becuase I wasen't as emotionaly attached with her as I was with Emi or Hanako. I really cared for those 2 girls. Shame their stories are over :(
So i might call Shizune' H-scenes borderline porn, but that up to each and everyone to decide for himself.
