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.

padraig: LDM90: Yeah, there's been a definite change over the last 20 years (maybe even just 10). The regular stuff is still out there but other stuff is pretty nasty. And if there are any porn stars reading, for the love of god, no more spitting. I can't imagine who they think would want to watch that.

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.


You may be interested to know that individual women are biologically different from each other and some produce more natural lubricant than others.

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:
Lets forget the article and just post pictures of our favorite porno stars...

also the lexi belle pic in the article made it so I couldn't leave my desk for a few moments...

/i would so boner lexi belle


Here is what a Stoya may look like:

preybyemail: a little spit is ok and has its humble place in the bedroom


I don't think the issue is with the fluid, but with its currently fashionable mode of delivery.

Tongue, finger, sure.

But, as spitting is the single most universally recognized insult across all civilizations, it carries some emotional weight.

Some see spitting and think "Gross! Vulgar! Dirty! Hooray!"

Some just think "Gross! Vulgar!".

I for one, am of the latter variety. I'm pretty starkly plain vanilla.

Other people's boats float on different pools of fluid than mine, I'm cool with that.

I count myself among those who are troubled by the trend in current pron to themes of degradation and abuse. It's hard to argue to people that porn is "empowering" and "non-exploitative" these days.

For me, sex is about making you and your partner feel good. I just don't get how humiliation, pain, or things of that sort help that along. And I've been with women who wanted more kink from me than I was comfortable providing, and since we weren't compatible, we parted as friends. I get it. I really do.

It's just a thing that I don't get into, personally.

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:

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.

I just like that James Deen likes talking about Pandas. Fits right in with that GQ article; cultivated persona or not, dude's got an interesting, normal image to him.

I purchased the Pirates DVD box set collection. Well worth it, and the wife loves it, especially after a tough day of shooting hipsters at point blank range with her AR-15. Me personally, I like to kill from a distance and watch their heads explode like fresh melons.

My favorite sex industry book is "Tales of Times Square" which captures the double deuce at its sleaziest and funniest.

It was written by Josh Friedman who was a beat reporter for Screw Magazine.  That straddles the fine line between dream and nightmare job.

His brother, Drew happens to be one of my favorite illustrators.

The interwebby killed pornstar fandom, sometimes I wonder if it killed gonzo journalism.
