Also, who knew the Catskills were such a breeding ground for porn stars?

Actually I've heard the opposite. It's kind of easy for us to just assume someone in porn is broken, but a lot of the performers actually love their job and were never abused.

so I have a question in where porn seems to be going over the last few years.  What is up with the complete and utter humilation of the women?  the spitting, hitting, etc.  I realize we're a sick species, but I thought that kinda stuff was relegated to a smaller percentage of people but that crap is all over the place.

Damn, I don't know what sites you go to but I don't notice any of that. Then again most of what I view is girl/girl so that could be the reason.

Some of it is BDSM porn where that's part of the play-acting, domination over a person (With their consent and feedback as to how much is too much).

Others are the "gonzo" porn that Sasha Grey made famous, where you see the humiliation. It's still BDSM in a way, because the porn star has consented to doing it, and is in control of the action (If she yells out "stop!" the camera will stop and so will the action).

It's exploitative but it's hard to brush it all off as objectification. I'm sure some of it out there is, though. There is still a human trafficking racket attached to some porn producers - but they're not likely to be Vivid or Adam and Eve.

Hateful porn still sells. Amateurs will do almost anything else for free.

I know a few people who used to be in porn. One manages one of Larry Flynt's strip clubs. One is still stripping in her late 30s but has an advanced degree. One of them has been a human resources professional for 25 years. Another one works in publishing but still occasionally escorts.

My social circle includes a lot of strippers and honestly it's the same sort of thing. About half of them are really sad stories because of addiction or abuse and the other half are probably going to have a perfectly normal future.

Sex workers are really interesting people. And they are people and they deserve respect that I have not observed them to receive.
 
2013-02-15 08:49:09 AM  
That was actually an interesting article, at least for stats junkies.  One thing I would have like to have seen however was the timeline weighting.  Comparing the explosion of porn first when the vhs market became generally available (as opposed to having to go to the theater) & then the quantity available once the internet became widely available would have been interesting.  Ah well, perhaps in a follow up...
 
2013-02-15 08:52:09 AM  
There are maybe 100 porn stars. The rest are just performers.

Gonzo is one thing, but you've got stuff like Rocco Siffredi pushing his partners' heads into toilets or Max Hardcore fetishizing rectal prolapses or whatever.

dickfreckle: Is it technically a crime to watch Traci Lords first works? I mean, I ask because my friend wants to know.


Why would you bother? I've seen clothed photos of Traci Lords from back then, and you're looking at a girl who looked a few years older. Oh, and it's illegal to own it. Oh, and Traci Lords is a piece of shiat.

One part of the reason for the explosion in hate porn is when Porn was concentrated in the Valley, with established producers and distributors they didn't want to give anti-porn crusaders (especially politicians, cops and prosecutors) any extra incentive for coming after them. And those that wanted BDSM/Aggressive porn had even nonexistent budgets ~ which would show up in the product. So unless you were really into "that stuff" it was such a shiatty quality, it wasn't worth one's time. That's the economic/political reason, the supply was artificially restricted.

Second, if we look at Porn as not "people having sex" but at "look at what we can get this woman to do..." Back in the pre-internet days, getting women to have sex/get naked on film was all that you really needed to do. In the Internet days, there's no shortage of women who are willing to get naked and/or have sex on camera. So the question becomes what else can we get women to do, Lesbian? Check. Gangbangs? Check. Ass Smacked? Check. Freakishly weird sex toys? Check. Tied Up? Check. And so on...

It still is relegated to a tiny percentage of people. Go on the sites that sell adult DVDs and look at the charts and that stuff isn't even in the top 100 DVDs.

The reason it's appeared is that we no longer have video shops stocking a few dozen titles. When you can only stock a few dozen titles, you have to work with what's mainstream. When you can stream it over the internet, you can have more diversity. Some of that means that you get Max Hardcore and his shiatty films, but you also get things like arty material, or odd, harmless fetishes.

Null Pointer: I still remember her early work....


One of her underage appearances is in the same issue of Penthouse that had Madonna's early nudes in it. I suspect that a LOT of copies of that are still out in the world, someplace. My brother had that one.

The old time pervs maintain that Traci Lords wasn't awesome because she was some great beauty but because she legitimately seemed to be turned on and orgasmic on screen. Maybe she was.

farkeruk: and that stuff isn't even in the top 100 DVDs.


Wanna know something funny? some of the most popular porn these days is she-male, which is made almost exclusively to appeal to nominally straight men. Porn webmasters and file sharing sites are absolutely teeming with that stuff.

I do not understand the spitting!  I have said this before...if anyone were to spit on me, let alone on/in my hooha, the fun ends right then and there, he can pack it up, put it away and go.  You don't get to spit on me and continue on as if nothing happened!
I haven't seen much hitting other than some of the designated rougher stuff, but the spitting is out of control.  Not sexy, not fun!

I would agree with both points.

1. Me being an old time perv
2. She seemed to be legitimately turned on and into the scene. There is one with her and Christy Canyon that I still remember.
