"When I got into this business, the only people who were open about watching porn were almost like pseudo-serial killers,"

LOL

I don't know why anyone's surprised. At a conceptual level, porn is a pretty bad thing to try and make money off of. Watching it doesn't prevent anyone else from using it and it's still there after you're done. The only reason there was ever even a 'porn industry' in the first place was because of how hard it was to produce and distribute back in the day. Those problems are obviously gone now with the advent of smartphones and the internet. Any bitter ex-boyfriend/girl with daddy problems can make their own porn and put it on the internet easily.

That's also why I think it's gotten more violent lately too. Anyone who's in it because they want to pretend like they're having actual sex is browsing the free amateur stuff, which is pretty white-bread. The ones who want to see women get degraded are the paying customers for the industry since they can't really get that elsewhere.

jeanna fine story time? She appeared at a Deja Vu in Kzoo way back when. Picked up my expensive non-alcoholic beverage, poured it down her nude body and into my mouth. Best 5 dollar can of coke ever.

I still pay occasionally for a porn membership, but damn you can't beat the free tube sites for having tons if content and porn stars, some of whom I might have ever seen if it wasn't for the streaming videos.

Indeed, Lexi is fantastic. The only porn star I know of that cleaned herself UP after getting into porn. She was far less mainstream in her earlier stuff and high school apparently. Now she's the All-American Girl.

Yeah, I never understood the "spitting for lube" thing. Not only is it gross, but it also is an admission of failure from the man, who could not get her girl wet enough.

Wayne 985: Speaking of porn, is it just me or has most of it gotten kind of gross over the last few years? I mean in terms of action, not performers. I was looking at some of the porn "tube" sites and most of them seem really angry and vile. Choking, slapping, ejaculating in a woman's face are almost universal.

I don't like throwing out words like "misogynistic", but it kind of is. Porn itself is great, but good lord... I want to see people having sex, not one person degrading another.

As someone who spent most of his academic life in the social sciences, and as a man who may have accidentily peeked a porn a thousand times ( a day), I find this contrast between the "new" porn actress and the "new" porn consumer very interesting. An equal part promising and disheartening. Social media has become such a necessary tool for the performers, combined with the more mainstreaming of porn and the access of reporters and such, has lead to a breaking of the mystique, and I'm not sure how I feel about that, especially after reading this article and others like it. Before they could be seen as a hyper-sexual being or some dirty, trashy other. Now the implication that the image has be come more professional, more humanized has lead to a lessening of them is one I hope doesn't hold true. Too be honest, I just woke up, and lost a lot of energy when I read the word Stoya on the first page soooo........kungfu jesus with a side of lime:

Well, that's an awkward sentence now that I look at it. No, if you look around, some of her photos from High School yearbooks and all that are floating around, and she was all hella punk and all that. I don't know of any, ahem, material from high school.

Ooba Tooba: About 12, or so years ago my childhood friend Smurf (he's a short fella) dragged me to the strip club to see a still young Jenna Jamison perform. She came out in a baby doll dress holding a lollipop and swinging her pigtails. On her way to the stage she greeted a few fans and came up to us and my friend tells her I am going through a divorce. She threw her arms around my neck and danced slowly against me for a few minutes, caressing my hair and telling me how things will get better, that I was handsome etc...all the while everyone in the packed club was anxiously watching us, and waiting for her to perform. She led me to the front and during her performance every time she came by me she would rub those beautiful breasts in my face. Csb


Jenna Jameson was not young 12 years ago.

Im assuming your an inexperienced guy, or a chick.

See every girl is different. Not all women have a goo fountain down there. Some women have a hard time lubing up when drunk or on drugs. Sometimes a quicky happens and penetration is spur of the moment.

A little spit goes a long way when properly administered.

It's one of the oldest dodges in the world to say "I read dubious mags for the articles", but that particular article was excellently written. It's like putting Jane Austen to work on Kirk/Spock fanfic. "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a human in proximity to a Vulcan during pon farr must be in want of yoga stretches."

TommyymmoT: fusillade762: They seem offended when I don't get up and give them a hug

CSB time:

I got a hug from Jeanna Fine at the Good Vibration awards in San Francisco many years ago. She was topless except for pasties. My GF at the time got one, too.

[actormunder.com image 250x450]

/csb

I just erased a massive tome about her, that I couldn't finish properly due to too much beer.

tl:dr:
I used to live with her, pre-porn, and she is one of the most compassionate, nicest persons that you would ever want to meet.
When I lived with her, (early 80s) she was a demure, early 20s shy blond girl.
I respect her greatly, but was repulsed when I later on, I learned that she had dyed her hair black, and got a massive boob job.

I'm going to sleep, I'll reply in the morning.
Her given name is Angel.
Angelique, actually.


Cue J. Geils.

Oh, I agree. The spitting is stupid. I was just objecting to the idea that all chicks produce the same amount of natural lubrication after getting turned on.

I remember watching The Playboy Channel scrambled at a volume of 2 in my living room, around 11:00 at night. Apparently, my parents knew, but my dad said, "it was good for me". Translation; "Phew, he's not gay".

Went to shake Rocco Sifreddi's hand at a bar in Milano. He grabbed my head and stuffed it into his crotch and spit into my wife's mouth. Friendly sort.

2013-01-25 10:01:27 AM  
I think another reason for declining porn sales has been the globalization of the porn industry, in addition to the rising popularity of amateur porn. The stuff coming out of Eastern Europe these days frequently has prettier girls who are frequently willing to go to more... extreme lengths, shall we say, to get paid. And they're probably willing to be paid less, too, which means the pay-for-play websites and DVD producers can charge significantly less for their product. See any Rocco Siffredi production by way of example.

Anyway, pornstars:

Women all being different (surely dont have to explain that to you smart guy), ive found several who dont LIKE the feeling of artificial lubes. A few who were allergic, or my wife who only likes lube with toys or fetish play but not with regular everyday sex.

Bet penthouse forums didnt tell you that mr. Grownup.

I tend to stay away from hocking loogs, unless its gonzo time.

Some spit, applied subtly to a finger, then transfered to a lady or man bit, is not gonzo porn spitting.
