"Bespoke Porn" is my new favorite band name.

I don't know what I was expecting, exactly, but it was a lot sexier than that article.

To sum up the article: none of the pr0n stars are really negatively affected, but all of the support crew like script writers, soundtrack composers, and cinematogaphers are shiat outta luck. Not surprising. What surprises me is that pr0n can generate any income whatsoever in the age of random idiots posting their own home sex videos for free online. Who are all these people still paying for scripted pr0n?

Granted, I haven't watched much scripted porn, but I think the cinematographers shouldn't have much difficulty finding work. Scriptwriters? If they can produce product on time, they'll be as well off as any other scriptwriter. Which is to say, pretty much screwed.

Nobody pays for the script, they pay for the camera, lighting, make up, and sound engineers. Amateur pr0n is terrible, dark, bad angles, unfocused, no/low sound, etc. And yes, the technical crew gets screwed the most when the talent doesn't screw.

Eh, I can see it. My porn tastes shift around. I'll be into the webcam amateur stuff for a few weeks, then shift to being into well filmed HD porn, etc. There's still a market for all sorts of different things.

To be fair, that describes a lot of the scripted stuff too. At least the amateur stuff sometimes shows some real passion, not just the "oh god keep farking me oh yeah" thing.
 
2013-12-21 02:48:27 AM  
As for what do the stars do when there's less work, I would presume most of them turn to dancing. A lot got into the industry that way and can still make a lot of money doing celebrity appearances at various strip clubs.

From what I've seen of professional porn (admittedly not a lot), the action scenes may as well be Kabuki. Oral, Anal, Vaginal, exterior cum shot. Or reverse anal and vaginal.

born_yesterday: I know I'm getting it for free and all, but some new camera angles would be nice, too.


Not long ago I actually did see a new one. They got a tiny little camera and light all the way up the vaginal canal, pointed back outward at the inbound schlong that promptly ejaculated all over the scene. Truly, we live in an age of miracles.

C-minus for eroticism, A++ for originality. It makes me wonder if the Adult Video News Awards have a technical awards banquet a few days before the main event, like the Oscars. I bet whoever came up with Cervix-Cam gets some kind of lifetime achievement prize.

um, maybe...   amateur is fine, but there are big names (and bodies) that will sell a movie.  so i can see that... as a side note, those are also usually folks who aren't just IN the movies, they're doing production/direction work as well, and occasionally will get back in front of the camera for the extra bucks...

at least that's what i got from the article... really, the people getting HIRED by the porn companies to do all the production work (makeup, camera, lights, etc) are the ones out of a job over this.  everyone else is still getting paid.

yeah, what i'm saying is the folks that make it get a percentage whenever the "free" site shows their clip... and those "free" sites get clicks and ad revenue...  so even if YOU aren't paying, your clicks are...

It's probably those who want particular types of porn, and don't want to wait for the free sites like YouPorn to come up with their fetish at random.  Or they're not bright enough to realize the free sites are out there.

Also, some non-porn but related sites advertise on the free sites.  Like the ones promising that you'll get to fark strangers in your area if you sign up; basically dating sites without the dates.
