Rope Looks Back….. November 2005

Ropeadope
Alison was kind enough to allow me to contribute the following entry to the blog. My original intention was to make a list of favorite scenes / performers on the site. However, I quickly realized unless the list was large enough to accommodate hundreds of items, it would be an impossible task. Instead, I went back to the beginning of the site’s archives in November 2005 and reviewed the first month’s updates. I selected ten scenes that were memorable to me and highlighted them below. [I have actually included eleven scenes in my listing, as one scene is oral only]. Possibly you’ve overlooked some of these scenes. With over 4000 DVD’s on the site and five more uploaded every day, it can be tough to keep up.



Internally Yours… More of a Cream Thing Scene 2, Ann Marie (11/4/05)
Scene opens with very cute Ann Marie talking to the camera. “Hi, I’m Ann Marie and this is my nineteen year old pussy. Do you like it? I like when a guy cums in my pussy. How would you like to cum in my pussy”? An unusual conversation then takes place between Ann and co-star Joel Lawrence.
Ann: “There is one thing I have to tell you.”
Joel: “And that is”?
Ann: “I don’t give head.”
Joel: “You don’t! Why”?
Ann: “Just…. Because…. I just don’t.”
Ann does allow Joel to go down on her and they fuck in reverse cowgirl, doggie, cowgirl, pile driver, and missionary with Ann taking a vaginal creampie. Loved Ann’s enthusiasm, great smile, and nicely trimmed bush. By the way, someone must have read Ann the riot act after the scene because I don’t recall her hesitating to give head in other appearances. And not like someone who never did it before either, I might add!

Blowjob Adventures of Dr. Fellatio #20 Scene 1, Mariah (11/5/05)
Mariah outdoors, sucking on a lollipop. “Do you wanna watch me suck dick”? Luckily, she’s kneeling in front of Brandon Iron who begins to feed her his cock. Great chemistry between the two performers. Brandon has Mariah giggling throughout the scene and gets her to laugh outright and turn her face away from the camera with the line, “You’ve had a lot of cocks in your face, haven’t you?” No hands head, ball sucking, Brandon slaps his dick on Mariah’s tongue. Some POV footage late in the scene. Mariah takes the load on her face, gives post cum head as she looks into the camera and asks “Who’s next”? First time I viewed the scene I nearly jumped through the monitor, waving my arms wildly and yelling “Me, I’m next”.

White Dicks in Black Chicks #1 Scene 1, Carmen Hayes (11/8/05)
Carmen is a gorgeous black girl with large natural breasts. She’s wearing an American flag bra to celebrate the fourth of July. Brett Rockman joins. Titty fucking. Carmen gives Brett some great looking no hands head and she goes pretty deep. Brett fingers her pussy from behind. Fucking doggie as Carmen pounds back into Brett. Now Brett is driving it home and Carmen is clawing the couch. Cowgirl with Carmen riding hard. Missionary. Trimmed bush. Carmen is squealing. P2M. Carmen grabs her ankles and pulls her legs far back as Brett continues to pump her pussy. Reverse cowgirl with her breasts bouncing up a storm. Carmen sitting on floor. “Bring your big ass white dick here and put my mouth on it.” Sucks and titty fucks Brett until he strokes a big load into Carmen’s mouth. Post cum head as the scene ends. Movie includes bonus POV sex (scene 7) with Carmen.

Just Over Eighteen #5 Scene 4, Melody Max (11/10/05)
Ultra cutie Melody is eighteen years old, graduated high school three months ago and is dressed in a red plaid skirt with a white top. Interviewed by David Luger. She gave blowjobs to around ten guys in high school, fucking six or seven of them. She’s paired with Pat Myne and Brett Rockman. Melody gives head to Pat as Brett eats her out from below, then blows both guys side by side. Excellent footage as she rides Pat in reverse cowgirl while continuing to give Brett head. Her breasts look awesome as they bounce about. The guys switch places and her breasts continue to transfix as they sway to and fro. Melody is now riding Pat in cowgirl and her ass looks as good as the titties did. Great body on this girl. Pat fingers the ass. Melody spreads wide in missionary as first Pat, then Brett slam away. Melody takes two facials to conclude a blistering scene. Movie includes a bonus POV bj (scene 8) with Melody.

Breakin’ ‘Em In #5 Scene 6, Katsumi (11/13/05)
The only condition Alison placed upon me was that I had to include one of the performers from her Top 5 Porn Stars blog entry of 11/20/07. Well, that and the fact that I don’t get paid. As to the former, she needn’t have worried, as I’m a big fan of Katsumi. Vince Voyeur and Michael Stefano are sitting around the office, waiting for new talent to show up. In walks the beautiful 24 year old Katsumi with her natural breasts and lovely accent. “You want to see my pussy”? Katsumi strips, revealing a patch of bush above her slit. She gives Michael no hands head as he fucks her face. Katsumi deep throat, gets all the way down.
Vince: “Where did you put it? I bet you can’t do that to me.”
Laughter all around. Action moves into the warehouse. Doggie vag followed by doggie anal. A2M. They climb up on table for more anal doggie. Large gapes. A2M. Spoon anal. Katsumi gives Michael A2M, rims him, and licks his taint. Michael back to drilling Katsumi’s pussy missionary as she leans back on a stool. Michael fires a nice load into Katsumi’s mouth, which she shows to the camera and swallows.

Rain Coater’s Point of View #1, Scene 2, Vanessa Rubec (11/20/05)
Vanessa is 24 years old but looks younger with her braces. Wearing a cut off t-shirt and shorts, she is one of the nastiest talkers around. Working with Steve Holmes and Brandon Iron, Vanessa plays with her ass. “I want your cock in here. First you lick it and then you fuck me”. Vanessa takes the guys one after the other in doggie, telling Steve, “You have a fat long-ass cock with a big ‘ol head. My pussy likes you”. Action switches to reverse cowgirl with Vanessa riding Steve. “I’m gonna fuck you all the time baby. I can’t get enough of your dick”. P2M. “I wanna be your whore, your slut, your cunt, and your bitch.” “Then you’ll finally do me in the ass”? Cowgirl anal. Vanessa pivots around into reverse cowgirl anal without disengaging. “I twist your dick. You like that? I twist your dick.” Anal missionary with her ass hanging off the end of chair. No lube. “Do me, do me, do me.” Gaping. Dildo in pussy, cock in ass. “I’m high on anal.” Vanessa takes nice facial from Brandon, tiny facial from Steve. Vince Voyeur heard in background, “That’s what we call a hamster pop (referring to Steve).” Great energy by Vanessa, scorcher of a scene.

Just Over Eighteen #2 Scene 6, Brooke Balentyne (11/21/05)
David Luger and nineteen year old Brooke in casino briefly, get kicked out. Elevator ride up to room. Brooke flashes her tits. In room. Joined by the “Canadian tag team” of Brandon Iron and Mark Ashley. Brandon rubs a strawberry up and down Brooke’s pussy, which she eats. Brandon fingers her ass, Brooke licks it clean. Blowing both guys side by side. Spitting on the dicks. Guys slap their cocks against Brooke’s face. Brooke attempts to deep throat both, goes pretty deep but these guys are big. Brooke lays back on couch, Brandon fucking her missionary while she sucks Mark. Sparse bush, nice breasts. Brandon fucks her hard in doggie, then moves around to receive head while Mark takes over the doggie drilling. Cowgirl from Brandon as he shoves fingers in and spreads Brooke’s ass. Brooke riding Brandon hard, blowing Mark. Brandon deep doggie anal. A2M. Riding Mark reverse cowgirl anal. A2M. First Mark, then Brandon deliver their loads into Brooke’s mouth. Brooke licks cum off the carpet. Her mouth is full of cum.
Brandon: “Kiss the camera guy”.
Brooke swallows it down, gets her ass and titties spanked. Brooke had a fun personality, high energy, and took a hard pounding.

Just Over Eighteen #1 Scene 6, Natasha Dolling (11/23/05)
Natasha is another super cute nineteen year old wearing a red skirt (bunched up around her waist) black top, and sexy yellow panties. This is her very first scene. She’s wearing braces and is blessed with beautiful natural breasts. Fun interview. She takes on Vince Voyeur and Pat Myne, energetically blowing both. Natasha leans back as Pat goes down on her. “Suck it. Ooh, you’re tickling me.” Missionary for Pat with Natasha’s panties pulled to the side. Doggie for Pat. Her pussy is very sensitive with a pierced clit. Doggie for Vince while she blows Pat. Natasha’s ass looks amazing as she pushes back into Vince. Riding Pat in reverse cowgirl. Natasha is into it. “Fuck my twat, fuck my nineteen year old little twat.” Cowgirl. Natasha takes facials from Pat and Vince. Pat pops a second time.
Vince: “He pulled that second one out of his big toe.”
Natasha giggles, blows a goodbye kiss to the camera.

Just Over Eighteen #7 Scene 1, Vanessa Valenzuela (11/25/05)
Vanessa is a very pretty nineteen year old and this is her second scene (her debut scene can also be found on the site in Brand New #2). Paired with Michael Stefano who sucks her toes, eats out her pussy and her ass while Vanessa fingers her clit. Michael positions Vanessa with her head hanging off the edge of the couch as he fucks her mouth. They fuck in spoon, doggie (while Vanessa sucks Michael’s big toe), cowgirl, and standing cowgirl. “You want me to bounce on your dick.” Back to the couch for missionary. “Put it back in, c’mon, give it to me. Fuck me hard.” Michael slows down the pace for deeper stroking. “Is that it, you gonna cum, you gonna give me the milk?” Michael shoots a big load into Vanessa’s mouth and she swallows it down. Much spanking and spitting (what’s up with all the spitting, I don’t get it) in this scene. Her scene in Brand New #2 with Darren James is more “couples friendly” if that’s your preference. Movie includes a bonus POV bj (scene 8) with Vanessa.

1 In The Pink 1 In The Stink Scene 1, Jayna Oso (11/28/05)
Jayna is 21 years old, being interviewed by Robbie Fischer. She illustrates for the audience what the movie title signifies, showing off her pussy and ass. Erik Everhard and Michael Stefano quickly join. Jayna gives head to both. Riding Erik fast and furious in reverse cowgirl. Michael cowgirl while Erik fucks her face. P2M for Michael as Erik fucks Jayna doggie. Many position changes, the guys are reaming her unmercifully. DP cowgirl. Standing DP with the guys bouncing Jayna up and down on their cocks. “Don’t stop, don’t stop. You’re fucking the shit out of me.” DP cowgirl. “I like getting fucked in all my holes.” Anal gape. Erik fingers her ass and has Jayna taste it. Reverse cowgirl DP. Reverse cowgirl double anal (DAP). Reverse cowgirl double vag (DPP). Erik doggie anal. Gaping. Doggie DP. “I love it, fuck that pink, fuck that stink.” Erik delivers nice facial. Michael cums on side of Jayna’s face. Lot’s of cum. Cum on couch, Jayna licking it up. One of the hardest poundings I’ve ever viewed. Movie includes a bonus POV bj (scene 6) with Jayna.

Cum Drippers #2 Scene 4, Tabitha Stern (11/28/05)
Tabitha is 25 years old and possesses one of the most gorgeous smiles you’ll ever see. She’s wearing a sheer top and shorts and teams up with real life husband Jonathan for this scene. Enjoyable interview with Vince Voyeur. Pushes panties to side. “There’s my cum dripper.” Neatly trimmed bush. Jonathan goes down on Tabitha. “Tastes good.” Her pussy is wide open as Jonathan licks it. “Yeah, fuck me with your tongue. I like that.” Tabitha gives great looking head to Jonathan. Sucks balls. “I love that dick.” Fucking missionary. Jonathan rubs head of dick on Tabitha’s clit. “Ooh, hot cock on my clit.” Spoon. “Pound my cunt, pound my cunt.” Doggie. Tabitha reaches back between her legs caressing his balls. “Ride me like a horse.” Reverse cowgirl. “Ride your big fucking cock.” Tabitha slams down hard onto Jonathan’s dick. “Bouncy ball.” Excellent chemistry between the two, natural not forced. Back to missionary as Jonathan unloads a creampie into Tabitha’s pussy. Cum drips out. Tabitha places hand underneath to catch the runoff. Licks cum off hand. “Pussy and cum, tastes good.” Majority of cum spilled on carpet.
Vince: “Clean up, aisle 4″.
Tabitha waves goodbye. One of my favorite scenes and one of my favorite performers of all time.

That’s my list for November 2005. A big thank you to Alison and the blog team for allowing this commentary. If you can suggest other scenes worth checking out during this month, please post a reply and let me know. I’m always anxious to learn of additional good scenes.


Please tell Alison if you wish to see this feature continue.

  1. alison Says:

    Anyone else get the feeling that rope likes ‘em young? ;) Many thanks to ropeadope for writing this awesome and in-depth post!

  2. allcomers2 Says:

    I’ve been a member a while and just discovered this blog today. I guess you could say I’m a meat-and-potatoes user.

    Rope, excellent post! Alison, please let there be more!

  3. raunchyrajah Says:

    I am a soon-to-be-published porn scholar (in fact I have a chapter in a book to be published this year that talks extensively about videobox). I have to say that since I have been a subscriber I have found rope’s comments on the individual scenes most useful. I am very very pleased to see he has been given a voice on this blog and would welcome regular submissions.

    I also think he should get a free month’s subscription AT LEAST. He rocks.

  4. jimmy007 Says:

    Amen to the above comments.

    That was awesome of you to give Rope a post, and this feature needs to continue for sure.

    Rope, I gave the original shout-out in the comments to get you a “scholarship” (see comments of Pretty Young Twat, Scene 1) and want to thank you on behalf of all members for the fine work you do.

    Give the kid a full-ride! :)

  5. Vlad Says:

    I’ve always appreciated seeing Rope’s comments and that goes double for this blog posting. Would love to see this become a regular feature.

  6. adversity Says:

    Rope for regular contributor

  7. TrevOrc Says:

    I second everyones comment about this immensely informative post. More please Alison.

    However, I do not think you should give rope a free subscription. Why? At the moment rope posts his comments voluntarily, he tells us about duplicated scenes, re-edits and re-rips when, and if, he feels like it, for which we all are tremendously grateful. If VB gives him a free subscription then he would feel obligated to do this more often possibly even on every scene. That much work and effort is worth a damn sight more than $10 a month!

    Offer him a job!

  8. TrevOrc Says:

    Having reviewed ropes list I really would like to see more of ‘rope looks back’ especially as we obviously have fairly similar tastes in scenes and girls, thank god rope doesn’t turn out to be a midget-tranny-milf-bondage lover!

    Isn’t it weird seeing these scenes in the new web site style but with a description on each of them and no comments?
    Bring back the descriptions please but don’t lose the comments (though I could do with a username filter so I could block out the inane rantings of some of our fellow members |-))

  9. bdickman Says:

    Rope, vox populi.

  10. Ben Morgan Says:

    Got to have more of rope’s work!

  11. Strangepork Says:

    Thanks a lot to rope for this list, and to those at videobox who helped make it happen. I’ve seen the Vanessa Rubec scene, and its one of my favorites too. I’m sure I’ll be checking out the others.

    I hope posts like this will encourage more users to provide useful scene reviews on the site. (Yes, I’m as guilty as anyone of leaving short/joke comments, but I always find the comments from those who have actually watched the scene to be the most helpful.)

  12. Michael I Says:

    Great job Rope. I’d definitely like to see more posts.

  13. totaldouchebag Says:

    Rope, you’ve been a great contributor to the site. It was a fitting gesture that Alison allowed your post. I hope this continues.

    As far as the favorite flicks go, I am also a big fan of Anne Marie, Vanessa Rubec, and Vanessa Valenzuela.

    On the Raincoater’s Point of View #1, how about that August scene? That is one of my favorites, and truly an unsung performance. Her ass, the BJ…

    When I saw her close-up at the AVN Awards night, I couldn’t help but think of her catching that blast on her grill. Boy has that girl changed since then!

  14. davros Says:

    Great job on the list, Rope. And a great job with your postings on this site.

  15. stoked01 Says:

    I’d like to take this opportunity to thank both Rope and Alison, but especially Ropeadope for both his vast knowledge of the porno industry and his mature conduct on the site. Rope, we’re stoked to have you!

  16. hiflyin77 Says:

    It’s been said many times before, but Rope, you are the bomb. Thanks so much for all the work you put in. Very fitting to have you on here now. Would love to see more Rope’s insight into the world of porn

  17. alison Says:

    The members have spoken! I’m very happy to say that I’ve invited Rope to post blog entries whenever he likes. And based on this list, I can’t wait to see what he comes up with.

  18. JP Says:

    Nice one Rope.

  19. Jay73 Says:

    While i dont neccesary agree with some selections i think that rope is an invaluable asset to the site, particularly when naming stars and linking to other scenes, plus he writes well.
    More of his works on this blog please and free membership for him too.

  20. ropeadope Says:

    Wow guys, you really know how to make a person feel appreciated. Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments. Let me start by addressing the issue of free membership. I would never accept such an offer for a number of reasons. First, as a matter of general fairness. All members should be treated the same, no better or worse than any other members. Second, to retain my objectivity. It’s no secret that I regard this site as the very best of its kind on the net. However, there have been (rare) instances when I’ve been critical. I would not want to jeopardize this freedom to express my true views. Third, the site is such a bargain that free membership is not going to change my lifestyle. I can definitely handle the more than reasonable fees.

    alison – Thank you so much for both the opportunity to do this post and for all your hard work in presenting it on the blog in the correct format. Guys, all I did was send Alison a plain text document. There was a ton of work required on Alison’s part to lay it out with all the appropriate working links, proper spacing, and other chores which I don’t understand enough to even discuss.

    allcomers2 – the blog was operational for a couple of weeks before I discovered it as well. I rarely used the beta version of the site until I found out about the blog.

    raunchyrajah – Keep us updated on details of the upcoming book.

    jimmy007 – I saw your comments on the main board soon after they were posted. I read everything and I’m grateful for the kind remarks of all. I limit my replies over there, so as not to hog too much space.

    Vlad / adversity / Ben Morgan / Michael I / davros / hiflyin77 / JP – Thank you guys, I believe you’ve convinced Alison.

    TrevOrc – Now you’re talking (re: job). I will occasionally view some of those “alternate category” scenes but it’s unlikely you’ll ever see them on a favorite scene list of mine.

    bdickman – vox populi, vox Dei

    Strangepork – Vanessa Rubec did far too few scenes. There is a DVD from Elegant Angel which I’m recommending to the site’s Content Operations Manager entitled Muy Calientes Latinas which contains scenes with Vanessa as well as Ann Marie and Daisy Marie.

    totaldouchebag – August Night is definitely another favorite of mine and I’m jealous you got so close to her. Frankly, I think all the scenes from Rain Coater’s Point of View #1 are excellent. Awesome collection of girls.

    stoked01 – I’ve always thought it pointless to argue with or disparage others in the membership. I’m happy to hear all opinions, positive and negative.

    Jay73 – And I’m not even an English major as you can tell by my penchant for beginning sentences with the word “And”.

  21. Strangepork Says:

    Since you mentioned Rain Coater’s Point of View #1, which I also think is an all-around great movie, I’d also recommend Straight to the A #2 (from the same month) to all of the anal fans. Both movies feature great scenes from Loni and Taylor Rain, but STTA#2 also has scenes from lesser-knowns Sugar Kane (sometimes called Sugar Kaine) and Karianna, both of whom I cannot get enough of. Also – Just Over Eighteen #3, again with Taylor Rain and Sugar Kane but also with Peaches(!) and Elizabeth Del Mar.

    November of 2005 was certainly a good month!

  22. alex Says:

    great list, should definitly keep doing these

  23. ropeadope Says:

    Strangepork – Good call. The common thread running through all the titles you specify and most of those in my list is Red Light District and directors Vince Voyeur, David Luger, and Robbie Fischer. This is why I’m very excited to see titles now being posted to the site from David Luger Productions which represent work he performed while with RLD.

    alex - Thank you, that is my intention.

  24. Maegorfromow Says:

    rope, you fucking rock. i loved the dr fellatio scene. it was a great find. i always had a thought in my mind that you would rise and gain some power. keep up the amazing and helpful work!

  25. ropeadope Says:

    Maegorfromow – Thank you bro, I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the scene with Mariah. I love all of her performances. I remember viewing a scene she did from the Dreamland DVD “18 Young And Tight #4″ which was real good. Also Zane’s “Young Dumb And Full Of Cum #2″. Possibly VideoBox can get their hands on one or both of those vids.

  26. justsomedude Says:

    The man is a legend.

  27. bindings1 Says:

    Rope,

    Good on ya’ for blogging here and props to Videobox for making it happen.

    Since you’ve obviously seen a helluva lot of porn, Rope, I would like to read some musing on favorite classics versus newer productions. For instance, is classic porn more about the sex or the partner than say the modern penchant of playing to the camera or endless positions? How do modern “features” stack up with the old ones – Candystripers comes to mind here?

    Et cetera, et cetera. Whatever you come up with, I always enjoy reading what you have to say – if for no other reason than knowing that there’s someone else out there who watches infinitely more porn than I do!

  28. xanthic Says:

    I’ve been meaning to write about the blog for a while, so this might end up being kind of long (I’m wordy).

    In all honesty, I usually get bored with the normal internet porn, but a few things keep me at Videobox. Obviously, the variety, but I also really like reading the comments and voting on them (have you noticed that you can click multiple times on the up/down thumb and the count will go up or down quickly? I don’t think it actually has any effect).

    This blog, though, has proven to be *quite* interesting, and the communication between site/company (Videobox) and its users is very impressive. It’s rare that companies pay attention to their users at all, let alone the anonymous seedy world of online porn.

    Ropeadope (and his doppelganger, ropeadope2) contributes to everyone’s enjoyment of the site, and I was *really* happy to see that he can write here, and that he’s planning to write more articles in the future. I don’t post comments at all on videos, but rope is a huge asset to the community, and it’s great to see that Videobox is *obviously* listening and working with the community to improve the service. Viva la Videobox, and long live Rope!

    As an aside, you should put a Category tag, such as “Rope Recommends” (that’s right, I like alliteration) on the videos. I’d also like to see community tagging, but maybe I can get into feature requests some other time.

  29. ropeadope Says:

    justsomedude – lol, Legend may be a bit over the top. I think you’re just happy I explained the 10 month subscription but thank you much.

    bindings1 – Great topic for a full length blog, let me make a few quick points here. While there’s a lot to like about classic porn, on balance I prefer the current era. On the plus side of the classics, I do love bush and appreciate the lack of slapping, choking, spitting, and other rough sex that’s all too common nowadays. But usually the scenes are far too short on sex and far too long on plot. Additionally, the video quality is generally not up to modern standards. I will mention Ashlyn Gere and Tori Welles as two actresses I’m always anxious to see perform. Every so often I’ll dig up the old VHS tapes and give them a spin. The “Marilyn Chambers’ Private Fantasies” series had some excellent vignettes and I remember “Summer Camp Girls” with Danielle, Janey Robbins, Kimberly Carson, Joanna Storm, Tara Aire, Brooke Fields, and Shauna Grant as a particular favorite.

    xanthic – Good to see you contributing to the blog, please consider doing the same for the videos. Funny about the up/down thumbs. Sometimes you can change the count by a dozen or so bangs in front of your eyes, but once you refresh the page, it’s back to where it should be. One thing I haven’t been able to figure out yet. If you commit yourself to a positive or negative bang, there’s no going back to neutral. You can go from positive to negative or negative to positive, but forget about remaining neutral. Anyone figure this out?

  30. ropeadope Says:

    Guys, when Alison returns she’ll insert the proper spacing in my replies above. The HTML code doesn’t work for me and I’m prohibited from editing my comments once they’re posted. Sorry for the problem, I know it makes for difficult reading.

  31. Chance Says:

    Rope – the Stephen Hawkings of Porn?

  32. justsomedude Says:

    “Legend may be a bit over the top. I think you’re just happy I explained the 10 month subscription but thank you much.”

    While I do appreciate the fact that you have explained something to me that nobody else that receives a paycheck from this site was able to do despite several of my question that went unanswered…you do a great job here. You are extremely helpful.

    Cheers fella!

  33. raunchyrajah Says:

    Rope, I’ll certainly keep you (and everyone) updated on the new porn studies collection. I wrote my article before videobox allowed comments, but am probably going to update it to reflect how users discuss various “alternative” genres. I interviewed one of the VB execs (who was quite gracious).

    Believe it or not, there are a few universities that are beginning to teach porn studies in a very serious manner (well, somewhat serious — the collection I am writing for is tentatively called “Hard to Swallow”). The kind of work Rope is doing — documenting, archiving, tracking, describing — is invaluable to people doing research in contemporary porn. We had one guest in the class I took — an editor at AVN — who has a unique 3-D still camera when he visits porn sets. He showed us dozens of pics (in large-projection 3-D) and I was surprised at how quickly he could identify stars from the past two decades just by memory. (Of course, thanks to my VB subscription, I could name quite a few myself — believe me, if you think Dani Woodward is hot on your screen, she’s awesome life-size in 3-D!) As much as I enjoy VB for the “usual” consumption of pornography, it’s a real treat to have it serve my academic purposes as well!

  34. xanthic Says:

    rope: I’ve noticed that there’s no way to make a bang neutral as well. There’s also no way to unrate something that you’ve rated. Not that I’m complaining, really, as I’m sure the developers have noticed, and that they don’t need me pointing it out.

    The multi-bang thing is probably just how quickly you can render the AJAX before the icon/link change disables it (not to get too nerdy). Of course, this could be way off, I don’t really feel like looking at the code :P

    raunchy – That’s really interesting; pornography in general is a fascinating subject (as obvious as that sounds). Not just mainstream pornography, or the mainstream perceptions of porn, but the multiple levels of subgenre as well. For example, foot fetishes are interesting, or balloon fetishes, or plushies and furries. It makes me laugh that quite a few people think that anal is kink, when people get off in *incredibly* specialized ways. It makes me feel “normal” or boring (with a slight [LEGAL] schoolgirl/lolita fetish and probably a few others I’m forgetting. Braces are pretty hot) in comparison.

  35. Val Says:

    Reading about ropeadope’s new project gave me an idea which may be considered to be wildly extravagant, or, just plain silly, but, I would feel remiss if I were to hold back on the community. Maybe others will think that I’m on to something.

    My idea is to create a VideoBox discussion board. So what if this is a porn site! Millions of people derive great pleasure and gratification from participating in numerous erotica forums; for many, such involvement has become a kind of hobby. For example, one of my favorite diversions is collecting vintage Playboy material. The VideoBox blog’s popularity and the quality and thoughtfulness of the posts indicate that a board might, quite probably, be appreciated by the members, and, well may become an important feature of the site.

    The board could have forums that are specific to our site, such as, DVDs, Scenes, Stars, and Studios, and also would have the usual General Discussion, News, Suggestions, Rants and Raves, Support, and Members’ Chat, as well as anything else deemed to be worthwhile. Tech-savvy members could contribute to the project, and it could be a team effort. Given the many “create a board” programs, it would be easy. Certainly, there would be no dearth of volunteer accomplices or moderators, and particularly knowledgeable members would have a venue to display their talent. A board of this nature would provide members with an extensive amount of useful information beyond that which already appears in the comments and on the blog, and, I think, would be loads of fun.

    I have been a member of VideoBox for two years and am a very satisfied customer and enthusiastic fan. I won’t go into the many great features of the site, but may write about it in the future if what I suggested above ever were to come to fruition. The opportunity to share my ideas right here on the site’s blog is characteristic of the unique nature of VideoBox, and, of course, telling of the intelligence, understanding, consumer orientation, and business acumen of the management.

    Damn Rope, that was a pretty hot post you worked up there. I love it when you talk dirty to me. And yes! I would like to see your pussy. ;)

    Chance – I do like physics and especially cosmology but when I tried to read Hawking’s “A Brief History Of Time”, I just couldn’t get into it. Loved the speculation surrounding black holes; how they might be portals into other universes, or act as a time machine to other periods (past and future) within our own universe. Have to give it another try one day.

    justsomedude – Always a pleasure to help a fellow member. Cheers to you mate.

    raunchyrajah – I never would have thought porn has become so acceptable as to be accredited for university studies. Fascinating. Could you post the initials of the helpful vb exec?

    xanthic – AJAX is not nerdy. I remember him from Homer’s Iliad and the Trojan War. Oh wait, I guess you’re referring to the programming / web development AJAX. Yeah, that is pretty nerdy. But probably because I only got as far as COBOL and FORTRAN in my programming studies. How’s that for dating oneself?

    Val – I’m with you all the way. If memory serves correctly, I believe Alison indicated in another thread of the blog that site management is considering developing such a vehicle. In the time that you and I have been members, VideoBox has already enacted numerous innovations. This is not a company that stands still and I believe we’ll see continued improvements down the road.

    dirtybirdy – lol. Thank you, so would I.

    Hey, Rope… I must admit that you are a very knowledgeable user. Your comments have been helpful dozens and dozens and dozens of times!!

    I’ve got a question I’ve wanted answered for a LOOOOONG time now, but I never knew who to ask… OR HOW.

    Well, there’s a particular scene that IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE! It’s short, and probably many of you have never even seen it (2 comments to date and no rating). Anyway, it can be found on “Two in the Seat #3 – scene 7″ (I think)… you know… the Belladonna blowjob. Holy shit! I love that scene!!!

    Rope – you’ve gotta refer me to more scenes like that one!!!!! Popularity doesn’t seem to help when it comes to THAT type of blowjob scene. Can you help? POV is a plus, but I’ll check out ALL references you suggest.

    Also, I wish the website had a tittyfuck category. lol Rope – any super hot titty fuck scenes you can recommend? Thanks so much. I eagerly await your response.

    And, oh… VIDEOBOX… HANDS DOWN THE #1 SITE ON THE INTERNET… PRICE… CONTENT… EVERYTHING…

    (one last thing – April Flowers anal scenes, pleeeeease)

    tenbones – Thank you, I have so much to learn. This is my very first attempt at blogging.

    raunchyrajah – Thank you for the info, much obliged.

    Heatseekuser – I just viewed the Belladonna scene to refresh my memory and yes, it is a terrific scene. I believe what elevates it above the norm is Belladonna’s total commitment to the moment. She seems to put everything she has into the scene. My favorite POV bj scene on the site (sure bet to make my December list) is Breakin’ ‘Em In #2 scene 6 with Kaylynn. I come back to this scene over and over again. Kaylynn is gorgeous and gives awesome looking head. A few other scenes of this genre I enjoy include Straight to the A scene 7 Fujiko (no money shot but hot nonetheless), Just Over Eighteen #3 scene 7 Taylor Rain, Fuck Dolls scene 7 Nautica Thorn, and 2 Hot To Handle #1 scene 5 Alana Evans & Genesis Skye. As to great titty fucking scenes, I’m going to have to defer to the membership for their suggestions. Can anyone help Heatseekuser out?

  42. Matt W Says:

    Rope, excellent as always. Allison we need more.

  43. Heatseekuser Says:

    Right on, Rope… I’m gonna check out each one of the scenes you recommended. Thanks! Oh, and yes, you’re right – Belladonna is into it so much that (after watching that scene) she literally became the sexiest female I’ve ever seen in my whole life! lol There’s nothing hotter than a female who actually ENJOYS the blowjob more than the guy who’s receiving it does. I don’t know whether or not she’s actually enjoying it more (or acting) – either way… hats off to Belladonna. AND – hats off to this website. AND – of course, hats off to you, Rope.
    Regarding the titty fucking: you’re not into that sort of stuff, eh? My girlfriend has small tits, but every time I’ve been with a big breasted female – I always try to fuck ‘em at least a little. lol Anyway, maybe if you get bored you could look into that for me. It’s pretty hard to find it in scenes without combing the website. I wish I had more time… otherwise, I would.
    Again – thanks so much for the recommendations and don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for some hot titty fuck action! Let me know.

    Please make this a regular feature.

  45. TopShelf504 Says:

    I’ve said it a thousand times on this site, and I’ll say it again: ROPE IN ‘08!!

  46. ropeadope Says:

    Matt W / D.J. Huebner – Thanks guys, much appreciated.

    Heatseekuser – Have you viewed Lil’ Bit Of Everything scene 7 with Whitney Stevens?

    TopShelf504 – If nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve. Whomever gets elected in ‘08 is going to inherit an awful mess, which may very well be irreversible by the time they take office in ‘09.

    Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, Vox populi, vox Dei, quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit.

  48. Monahan Says:

    Thanks, Rope. I like the list mainly because you pointed me to some stuff I hadn’t seen before. Top tens lists are always very subjected but your taste in babes is so good I know I can count on getting a rise out of old woody when checking out one of your recommendations.

  49. ropeadope Says:

    BDickman – Now you’re stretching my understanding of Latin to the limits. To help out our readers, here is a rough translation of the exchange between BDickman and rope thus far:

    BDickman – vox populi = voice of the people
    rope – vox populi vox Dei = the voice of the people [is] the voice of God
    BDickman – Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, Vox populi, vox Dei, quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit. = And those people should not be listened to who keep saying, “The voice of the people [is] the voice of God,” since the riotousness of the crowd is always very close to madness.

    The full quotation is attributed to the monk Alcuin who was advising King Charlemagne.

    Monahan – More than welcome. If I’m not mistaken, I believe your tastes gravitate toward the more zoftig performers. But as you say, it’s always nice to be pointed in the direction of some quality material that may have been previously overlooked.
