Happy 2nd Birthday, VideoBox Blog!

cupcakeNext Tuesday, October 20th, will mark the 2 year anniversary of the VideoBox Blog. To celebrate, I figured I’d post my 10 favorite posts from the last 2 years. These are posts I enjoyed writing and I’m hope you enjoyed them too. If you’re fairly new to the blog, this is a chance to check out some of the older posts you may have missed.

My 10 Favorite Posts from the Last 2 Years

November 8th, 2007: How to Hide Your Porn from Your Wife
While the title was kind of tongue-in-cheek, concealing one’s porn viewing habits is often a fact of life when one shares a computer. In this post, I outlined some ways of watching porn without the hassle of answering questions about whether you *really* prefer blondes with big tits who like it in both holes and the inevitable tearful discussion that follows.

December 6th, 2007: Top 5 Cum Dodgers
This is one of my favorite posts of all time if only because it allowed me to discover this video of a horrified Allysin Chains getting sprayed in the face with semen. The subject matter is funny in general, but that video really took the cake.

June 19th, 2008: Porn Star Tattoos: Best and Worst (Mostly Worst)
If I recall correctly, it took me a couple of days to pull together this compendium of mostly bad porn star ink. I am fine with tattoos in general (you can see mine in the comments), but for some reason, porn girls are drawn to the ugliest possible body art they can pick off the wall at the tattoo shop.

August 11th, 2008: My Conversation with John Stagliano
This post was awesome to write because I got to talk to one of my porn heroes about one of the biggest gripes porn fans have about the way porn’s made and get his opinion on it. I got the sense that he really took how strongly VB members feel about it to heart and will keep it in mind when making movies down the road.

September 23rd, 2008: Alison’s Top 10 Asses in Porn
As you may have noticed, I enjoy list posts. This one was interesting to write because I don’t consider myself an ass woman. Asses are great and nice-looking ones definitely add to the party, but they’re not my #1 hotness criteria. So I felt like I could approach this topic with some objectivity. And to be honest, by the end, I definitely felt like I understood a little better where ass (wo)men are coming from.

November 19th, 2008: Thirty-eight Percent of Porn Stars Do Anal?
Alright, I will be the first one to admit that this post was fun primarily because I got to make a graph for it. I definitely think I need to do more posts involving graphs.

November 13th, 2008: 5 Ways to Tell Real Breasts from Fakes
As an owner of breasts and someone who’s been involved with the adult industry for almost 8 years now, I’m pretty decent at determining whether breasts are real or fake without the benefit of a squeeze test. You should check this one out if only for the freaky illustrations.

January 27th, 2009: The 7 Most Flexible Girls in Porn
Girls who can put their legs behind their heads during sex are a rare breed that deserves to be recognized. Tracking these ladies down was not an easy process, but a rewarding one for sure. Looking at the screenshots in this post still boggles my mind.

April 24th, 2009: Eva Angelina’s 5 Best Scenes
I did a similar list for Belladonna, but for whatever reason, I like this one better today. It’s not on the list because it’s part of the Evil Angel channel, but Eva’s first anal scene was pretty top notch, wasn’t it?

July 25th, 2009: Interview with Belladonna
Even though it was insanely loud and we were interviewing her in a cluttered closet in the Evil Angel booth, I had a great time doing this interview. And don’t worry, if I end up in Las Vegas next January, I’ll bring better sound equipment…

It’s been a great two years. Thanks so much to you guys for reading and commenting!

    HotScooter2 – You are 1000% right about that. I love you guys, but sadly, they haven’t figured out a way to send cakes through the internet yet. It’s 2009, folks. Let’s get on that.

    Congratulations on two full years of the blog Alison; many, many happy returns. When the blog first appeared, it took me several weeks to get into it. I’m like that with anything new. But once I started visiting the blog, it quickly became my favorite component of the entire VideoBox experience. Ever since then, my first stop at VideoBox is always the blog. Even before checking the new updates. I love the ten articles you’ve highlighted above. I would add to those, any of your wonderful “Finisher” posts (complete with snarky comments), and any of your reports and interviews from the Adult Entertainment Expo’s. In addition, here are a few more specific entries that I enjoyed for their informative and compelling content.

    The blog has actually been an enormous addition to the site. The articles above have been a real plus, sparking off fun debates, but I completely agree with Rope that features like the finishers posts really help with our experience of the site. I have discovered a few scenes through this feature as well as the articles. Like many others I would never have found that funny Allysin Chaynes scene but for the cum-dodgers post. So happy birthday blog and well done to Alison and all those who have helped make the blog as entertaining as it is.
