Which are the most unrealistic in their portrayals of reality and thus most damaging in their influencing of expectations?

Rom Coms are the most realistic. Everything works out and everyone are always happy in the end.

Equally, I guess, not being an expert at porn.

Rom coms.

I think for the most part people are inclined to think of porn as unrealistic.  If anything, it might give you an idea of a new position to try (as long as you hit the gym on a reasonably regular basis.)

Rom coms on the other hand, try to position themselves as 'emotionally realistic.'  99% of the male characters in a rom-com are technically just stalkers.  If you try to pull off almost any act in a rom com you could wind up in jail.  At least anything you see in porn you know you already have to be in a relationship to even try.

Though it may end up in a very embarrassing trip to the doctor.

Porn is largely responsible for an epidemic of insecurity: males feel their own dicks are too small and women are all rushing to the plastic surgeons for a reduction of their labia minor,  a surgery that should be banned IMO.

What about the concepts of love at first sight, monogamy, and "True Love"?

That is not restricted to romcoms.

Why do you think they are unrealistic?

Because love at first sight doesn't exist, monogamy is demonstrably not inate to the human condition, and true love the work of years of investment.

Or is Disney bang on, and everyone simply has a shit life?

Because it doesn´t matter whether you believe in or expect true love etc., it will probably overcome you anyway at some stage in your life. Thinking your fanny or your dick is misformed is another matter.
