    please explain the sentence

    Hi,
    I'm reading a material for work. But there's a sentence I don't understand clearly:
    " E
    ven if many people think porn is stereotypical and boring, it’s those very clichés that some people find extra exciting."

    Can teacher help me to understand the word " those" after " it's" stands for which word? and can you explain the meaning of the sentence for me?

    Many thanks!

    NOT A TEACHER.

    I don't think the sentence makes a ton of sense.

    As I understand it, many people find porn stereotypical and boring, while some are "turned on" by its stereotypical and boring nature. On a broader level, the author may be saying that those looking for a touching story shouldn't criticize a porn movie for not delivering one because that's not what porn movies are meant to do.

    I think it would've been better to write that porn is predictable instead of boring.
