an abbreviation for "point of view". In addition to its use as a device in literature (as described in a previous definition on this site) it has also become commonly used in pornography. With the rise of handheld video cameras and the spread of amateur porn on the internet, a whole sub-genre of pov porn has developed.

In a pov porn the man receiving sexual ratification holds the camera himself and aims it down at his genitals and the partner/s who is/are pleasuring him. This is in contrast to having a separate camera crew filming the action. The effect is to give the viewer the sense that he is experiencing the sexual acts he is watching as opposed to simply watching others as a voyeur.
I get so excited watching pov porn. I feel like I am really there and it's just me and the porn star!

In internet porn it means "Point of View" which means you are in the position of a man actually receiving the sexual gratification depicted in the clip, usually fellatio. Increasingly, however, it refers to the extremely intense and very erotic eye contact that occurs between the female giving the BJ and her fortunate receiver. Janet Mason is a fine example of a master of this genre, her big blue eyes penetrate your soul as she is swallowing your cock.
That bitch gives excellent POV blow jobs.

Acronym; 'point-of-view'. Describes a genre of pornography in which the sexual acts are filmed from the point of view from one partner (usually male) as they are performed with the other (usually female) partner. Often used to depict close-ups of penetration; as such, frequent depictions involve oral and rear-entry positions, including anal. Owing to it's cheap and easy-to-make nature, frequently appears in amateur and low-budget pornography.
Me and Jane watched a pretty hot P.O.V movie last night.
