Now Rope Wants Us To Think?

Today’s post is completely different from anything previously presented on the blog. I’ll be back with a more “normalized” post in roughly 24 – 36 hours. So what’s this entry about? I’ve constructed a puzzle regarding the hypothetical filming of an adult movie. All you need to solve the puzzle is logic and common sense. No mathematical calculations required. Paper and pencil (the eraser is bound to be needed) are recommended. I’m including a help file if you need to be pointed in the right direction, and the solution can be found at the bottom of the post. No need to respond to the post with your answers. However, I would like to know whether you would be interested in seeing more of these type of posts in the future, and if you found the puzzle to be too easy or too hard. Let’s get to the specifics.

In our imaginary situation, I’ve just completed the filming of an adult movie which is comprised of five scenes. Ten women were featured in the movie, with each scene utilizing two women (along with a male co-star, but that’s not part of the puzzle). No woman appeared in more than one scene. Each of the five scenes was highlighted by a specific act or set of circumstances (anal, creampie, interracial, pov, squirting, but not necessarily in that order). From this information and the following clues, can you determine the names of the two performers in each scene (one girl is named Kelly), the particular act featured in each scene, and the order in which the scenes appear in the movie.

1. The first scene featured neither anal nor interracial.

2. Alicia, Inez, Joanna, and the POV were four different scenes.

3. The creampie scene appeared somewhere before Rose, and immediately after Joanna.

4. Francine and Inez (who were not in the same scene) both appeared in scenes after Alicia’s scene.

5. Both the anal scene and the creampie scene (which did not appear consecutively) appeared before the squirting scene.

6. Veronica performed in the POV scene.

7. Georgia was not part of the anal scene nor did she perform with Inez.

8. Louise performed in the squirting scene.

9. Nellie did not appear in the creampie scene.

The names of the ten girls are Alicia, Francine, Georgia, Inez, Joanna, Kelly, Louise, Nellie, Rose, and Veronica.

The five featured acts (one per scene) are anal, creampie, interracial, pov, and squirting.

    Rope, I love puzzles like this — the kind you find in the quantitative section of the GRE. It’s too late at night for me to figure this out now, but I’m going to attempt a solution tomorrow. Thanks for the effort.

  2. ropeadope Says:

    @ lickmylovepump – Thank you. My initial intent was to post much earlier in the day, but these puzzles can be somewhat tricky to construct. I needed to double and triple check to make sure everything was correct. Give it a go tomorrow when you’re well rested.

    Rope – Great idea. This is the type of exercise that helps prevent Alzheimers; I doubt it will fire up the brain cells enough to remember every scene every girl has been in on Videobox like some people I know can do, but it will help. And it will be fun. I’ll tackle this after I get back from work. Of course, it doesn’t help attenuate the porn addiction to have porn games and puzzles ….

    This is like the famous “Einstein’s Puzzle,” except I never wanted to take a break and wank one out when I did that brain teaser.

  5. Hamtili Says:

    Nice job rope. I like this kind of puzzles, I would like to see more of them. Wasn’t very hard for me because I’m used to boolean algebra and other logic stuff (although not in the context of porn), it was probably harder to create the puzzle and check for correctness.

  6. ropeadope Says:

    @ doppyman – Thank you. Very accurate statement regarding these mental exercises being of help in the prevention (or at least, delay) of Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, I’ve seen the effects of that illness first hand. Another helpful technique is to explore subject matter that you haven’t previously been familiar with. The fresh material has a beneficial effect on the brain.

    @ FlopTheNuts – So true. The mental image that Einstein conjures up, pales in comparison with that of our favorite adult performers.

    @ Hamtili – Thank you. Somehow, I knew you would do very well with this puzzle, although I had no idea of your exposure to Boolean algebra and logic puzzles. I’ll attempt to make this one of several recurring features of the blog.

    Always offering us an opportunity to think. I’m guessing that there are countless other avenues of intellect that Rope could tickle our brains with. Thanks, man.

  8. doppyman Says:

    Rope, great job. I’ve gotten ahold of some of these puzzles before and they don’t always pan out logically, forcing you to do trial and error until you hit a snag, but your clues were great, making the puzzle solvable by logic and I was able to work it out correctly in about 12 minutes.

  9. ropeadope Says:

    @ danebly – Thank you for the high praise. I don’t know about countless other avenues, but I’ll try to keep things varied, while still remaining on topic.

    @ doppyman – Many thanks and 12 minutes is an outstanding time. I’d still be reading and trying to understand the clues at the 12 minute mark. Would probably take me at least 30 minutes to solve this type of puzzle, possibly longer. Some of the more complex puzzles intentionally bring you to a point where you must use trial and error to complete the solving process. I don’t believe it’s a fault in the design of the puzzle; I believe it’s intentional. Those are the most difficult puzzles. I like to use the word “transmogrified” to describe puzzles of that nature.

  10. doppyman Says:

    Rope, I’m glad you liked my little transmogrify joke session there. I do want to point out that I will only do something like that on occasion because I think it annoys viewers who really want comments that help describe the scenes. But I couldn’t resist. This blog and the comments add a lot to the site. Often it’s funny and fun, sort of like the part of the night where you hang out with the guys before leaving with a girl from the bar.

  11. ropeadope Says:

    @ doppyman – Yup, I lmao reading your comments in that update. Great way to start the day.

  12. tom brokaw Says:

    I thought rope died.

  13. ropeadope Says:

    @ tom brokaw – lol, have you gotten so lazy in your retirement, you couldn’t click inside to read the rest of the article?

  14. Mister Handy Says:

    Oh, gawd. I did the GRE analytic once, and it gave me a headache. This is straight from that sort of thing (or the LSAT, from what I hear.) But with porn. I’ll have to try this later 🙂

  15. monkey12345 Says:

    Excellent. I had to restart a couple times because of stupid mistakes, but it was a lot of fun. Do more!

  16. ropeadope Says:

    @ Mister Handy – Glad it caught your interest, let us know how you do.

    @ monkey12345 – Yeah, that happens to me all the time. I don’t think I ever solve these puzzles cleanly. Always have to go back and redo certain aspects of the puzzle where I took the incorrect path for one reason or another. Thank you, I’ll try to work up a new puzzle in the next week or two.
