P$rn No Longer For Men - MGTOW
"Hi Sandman. I have yet another topic that may be of interest to you. I know that you have covered ad< videos in previous shows but I don't know if you've covered this. Once upon a time, way back in the paleolithic age of the 1980s I, like any other red-blooded teenager, loved it whenever I got my hands on an "adult" video. Back then, porn was mainly comprised of extremely attractive women with average, or sometimes mildly above average looking men. You may be too young to remember these names but the male porn stars of the day; Ron Jeremy, Peter North and the infamous John Holmes are three of the adult industry superstars that readily come to mind, but there were many others. Of interest, time and again what you got were average looking men with the exception of their 'size' coupled with super hot women of the day. The lighting was often 'moody' and dark, the locations were frequently common places that any person would experience from day to day, from an average bedroom to a seedy motel bed to a random outdoor field in the middle of nowhere. It was all of this
that made 1980s p$rn emotionally accessible, in particular, to the young teen to twenty-something with next to nothing in this world. Not only that, but I distinctly remember the actresses portraying a visceral sense of being 'into the scene,' as it were. Sure, they may have been coked up and horny but there was a certain -real-ness- to the whole affair. Finally, the sequence of acts was often different than it is with modern p$rn; The actors would kiss or hug (like a
normal couple would do), there would be some fondling/groping (again, like a normal couple) then the woman would usually start off with her giving him fellatio, sometimes the man would reciprocate, and finally the money shot would wrap things up. Now, it's been a long time since I've watched p$rn but I thought I'd see what it was like, given that they have 4k resolution, a considerable step up from the days of four hundred eighty lines of interlaced VHS video. Just so I don't gross out your listeners, no I wasn't 'choking the chicken' or anything like that, simply a forensic curiosity to see where the industry has gone since what some refer to as the 'golden age' of p$rn. Here is what I found. The first thing that struck me is that in more recent porn movies, the stages appear to be set in multi million dollar homes or their ancillary trappings such as a high end 'forever' pool. The days of moody, dark lighting seem to have vanished, almost every scene that I skimmed across appear almost overly-lit and sterile. Perhaps this is a cinematographic decision to focus on the 'action' where the set itself is not important, but I couldn't help but feel a little distanced from these choices. And the male actors appear to be ubiquitously ripped while the women do not appear as 'goddess-like' as I remember.
