Regarding porn

Ok, this is a real question. I read that the porn industry struggles to maintain profitable. And I ask you: why shoot new porn movies every day? There are thousand clips, if not millions, already shot and available in several mediums. Why is there a need to shoot more porn movies? I mean, it’s not that they are any different from the previous ones! There are only so many sex positions or “scenarios” you can invent and try to convey through your film. The “meat” of the story (no pan intended) is always the same. So why aren’t the studios already shut down and just circulate the movies already in existence? Besides, the porn industry doesn’t even need HD, so no reason to re-shoot such movies/clips.

Heh, one could largely say the same for *most* TV shows, not just porn on the web ;^)

I disagree. TV shows can always be creative enough and show different things — even if they are nothing but remakes. But porn?

Actually, the porn industry was one of the first to use hd-technology, not to mention it was one of the main reasons VHS beat Betamax. They need better cameras for the same reason Hollywood does.

There are a number of fetishes that could be explored e.g. female dominatrix, midgets, or whatever is considered edgy pornographically. There are also a number of movie techniques that could be used to enhance porn. E.G. deep focus shots, cameras inside dildos, better sound.

The porn industry isn’t going anywhere. If they did stop, films would look outdated real quick, not to mention the fact all the stars, directors, producers, and others associated with the porn industry ( fluffers? ) would have to find new jobs. There is a lot of money to be made, and no sane industry would just give up that kinds of revenue.

Plus, what good is having new content in any field? Let’s not make anymore sci-fi, new movies, and new operating systems or computers! It’s all been done ! We know everything ! 640k is enough for anyone !

The porn industry does not need HD. DVD quality is enough for what they need, not to mention QVGA for the web.

>Plus, what good is having new content in any field?

“Any” other field can be explored and extended. I find that the porn industry has no such potential. Whatever way there is to get fucked, it’s already been done.

Of course the the porn industry needs HD, saying otherwise is just being a neo-luddite or a prude. Why do you need to talk about pornography? If you want sex you can just say “Hey JBQ ! Get over here !” For a man, sex is a biological urge just like eating and sleeping. The same old thing gets boring.

Of course porn needs HD for the same reason regular movies do. I take it you know what a “deep focus” shot is in cinema? You can’t have a good deep focus shot at a low resolution. There are hundreds of different things people are in to sexually.

There are whole categories like, amateur, anal, anime, Arab, army, asain, babysitter, basement (good for slashdotters), bathing, bathroom, BSDM, beach, big breast, small breast, black, blowjob, pale, thin, red hair, blonde hair, short hair, long hair, nun, braces, blue eyed, old, young, glasses, petite, Russian, gym, hairless, group, hooker, hymen, smoking, speculum, jail, kissing, ladyboy, teacher, thong, college student, et ad infinitum.

All ages, all sizes, all numbers, all skin colors, all hair colors, all sexualities, and all the little things and weird things (shoes, food, disabilities) that make people excited.

Maybe, but people get tired when watching one p0rn video again. Even the prettiest face and the dirtiest trick can become boring when it’s played for too many times. It’s just the same reason why men always dream of dating a different girl everyday. Why? Because there is no love here. You do not really love the actress in that video at all, so she will be boring next time. This is different in marriage. You can look at JBQ’s face forever without getting bored, because there is true love between you.

So, even the tricks don’t change, we still need new faces to play the tricks.

Another reason is, the world is always moving on. You won’t want to watch a p0rn video shot when your father was still very young, because the actresses at that time didn’t look good enough, by today’s standard, and the whole old-fashioned environment (e.g. clothes) look funny and fake. Most p0rn watchers like videos shoot in real places, in real time, so that they can get the feeling of the reality. So we always need new videos.

Also, HD p0rns do make sense. It’s more touching/moving/exciting when you can see more details. It’s just the same reason why you want to watch Lost in HD format.
