you cant censor body fluid it would mess up the art work too much since its usually over other body parts and faces.

with pixels you at least get a sense of the thing even if its obscure.

@Requal: any Japanese pornography especially bukake has pixelated areas or bars, thats what japan does. in fact alot of real porn does. heh but not the ones i know ;)

Kind of a weird question, but I'd rather go with the bar. It usually covers less than the pixels, and the pixelation just looks way too weird to me.

Seriously, though, I see that a lot more than either of the other two!

Although I must admit that all of my hentai intake comes from yaoi, which might be a part of it.

I like it best when the male genitalia is just invisible and outlined by fluids. lol

But seriously, I don't understand the attempts at hiding what's going on. They're not fooling anyone.

Pixels. It doesn't stand out as much as thick black bars, in my opinion.

Lmao xD
Yeah, times2

But out of those choices, pixelated.
I don't mind pixelated at all, but the black bar frustrates me.

That's because the Japanese porn industry sucks. They should follow real porn like American porn.

I honestly never really watch Japanese porn because of this, though most of my hentai favorites are unlicensed/censored. In the end, yeah it's a stupid rule on their part.

You can blame the postwar American occupation for this one.

I must be one of the few that prefers the black bars. In the yaoi I've seen, the pixels are so horribly overdone and huge that it doesn't even look like a penis was even there at all; just a flesh colored mosaic rectangle. The black bars or white bars I see are usually tiny and you can still easily tell what's going on. Sometimes I don't even notice the censorship at all when they use white bars.

I prefer white or black bars. It's harder for me to see past the pixels.
