Point Blank P.O.V In An Upset

Voting is now closed in our New Sensations / Digital Sin debut video poll. Point Blank P.O.V overcame a sluggish start and roared to victory by a margin of twenty four votes, garnering 26% of the total ballot. Voting was brisk with 418 votes being cast in 53 hours (the poll was extended an additional hour as I dragged my ass out of bed at 4 AM instead of 3 AM east coast time). Point Blank P.O.V and What An Ass #7 both rallied strongly to take down the winning and runner up spots. The two early pacesetters, Craving Big Cocks #7 and Fucking Beautiful #4, faded to finish fourth and sixth respectively. Sex With Young Girls #8 ran an even third and Keepin It Fresh #3, never found its late kick and finished fifth. Point Blank P.O.V boasts a well balanced cast led by the old war horse Gianna Michaels, ultra popular Ashlynn Brooke, veterans MacKenzee Pierce and Carmen McCarthy, and rarely glimpsed Halia Hill. The DVD is scheduled for upload on 1/1/10.

The Pornos of VideoBox Past and Future

Three years ago, VideoBox released its first Christmas porno: The Tits That Saved XXX-mas. This year, we’ll be welcoming three new Christmas movies onto the site, so I wanted to put together a small list of what’s come before and give a sneak preview of what to expect in your VideoBox stocking today.

2006: The Tits That Saved XXX-mas
Four scenes with people dressed up in Christmas-y costumes. Excellent Christmas porn because there’s very little plot, girls with big tits, and festive costumes/decorations.

2007: Big Titty Christmas
My favorite Christmas video on the site. Six scenes with eight girls dressed up in Santa outfits, four scenes with anal, two sets of natural tits, and a partridge in a pear tree.

2008: Very Very Bad Santa
Ron Jeremy (ironically?) plays a pathetic Santa who fantasizes about sex. The least Christmas-y of the X-mas porn, the only holiday-themed fucking is Brian Surewood dressed as an elf while getting a blowjob.

2008: A Very Creamy Christmas
Cute Christmas-themed lingerie with creampies. Worst part is definitely scene 4 starring Tabitha (the one with the terrifying pussy tattoo).

I want to wish a very happy and safe holiday to all of you, regardless of whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Saturnalia, Kwanzaa or Festivus (for the rest of us).

New Feature – User Comment Browsing

I know it’s only been a short while since my introductory post, but cool things are happening here at VideoBox, and I’m eager to keep you up on what’s new and exciting.

We’ve just rolled out a great new feature that I’ve personally found incredibly fun and enlightening. If you’re like me, user comments can be just as interesting as, and occasionally even more entertaining than, the content itself. Wouldn’t it be great, when you stumble across that one brilliant comment that completely echo’s your own thoughts, to see what else that user has had to say about other scenes? Imagine how you might find content you did not know about as well, just by following the ‘breadcrumb’ trail that can be found browsing user reviews. And when you want to find that scene you commented on many months ago and can’t recall just where you found it, wouldn’t it be ideal to review your own comment history?

Well, now you can!

clickableUserNames

Part of my own fun with this has been finding a hilarious comment, and discovering that the user has a pattern of consistently cracking me up. And yes, I’ve also found user’s raving about a specific scene or star, and used their comments to find even more content I didn’t know about.

It’s incredible. And it’s available now. Go check it out. Start exploring by clicking on a username in any comment, and off you go. View your own comments from the Profile section in the MYVIDEOBOX tab. Just click on “View My Profile Page”.

communityProfileComments

Hmmmm… Interesting stuff, that Profile section and Profile page. Kind of makes you wonder what else might be coming, doesn’t it? ;-)

AIDS Group Petitions CAL/OSHA to Mandate Condom Use in Porn Production – What Do You Think?

bulk-condomsIn June of this year, a porn performer tested positive for HIV. To make matters worse, she was hired to work immediately before she was tested (or after, depending on who you ask) even though it had been over a month since her last test. The fear was that she had exposed her co-stars to the disease. Thankfully, none of her partners contracted HIV.

A scandal involving the industry’s testing service, Adult Industry Medical (AIM), erupted and accusations of hiding positive tests, skewing numbers and generally being incompetent began to fly. Amid all of this, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) launched a campaign to require condom-use in California, which brings us to yesterday.

The AHF filed a petition to amend California’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (CAL/OSHA) rules regarding blood-borne pathogens to mandate that condoms must be used by all porn performers in the state. This has been wholly rejected by the industry for a variety of reasons, ranging from performer safety to loss of profits. Accepted wisdom in the adult industry is that condom porn doesn’t sell.

So I’m curious what you, the consumer, thinks about this subject. Is requiring condoms a good idea? I’ve expressed my opinion in another forum, but I really want to hear from you. Participate in the poll below and feel free to share your opinions in the comments as well. This issue has the potential to radically change the way pornography is made and very few people are discussing the impact on the customer.

New Kid In The Box

Have you ever made a decision you knew, with an overwhelming sense of confidence and harmony, was the right one? A decision you didn’t hesitate  to make? One you’d never second-guess? Well I have, a few times, the most recent being accepting the opportunity to take a product focused position on the Videobox team. So, you’re my customer. Each of you, and the collective whole that makes up the Videobox user community.

I’m pleased to meet you all.

Before joining this team, I worked for a high-profile tech company. When I’d meet somebody and in conversation, disclose my position and employer, I’d hear all kinds of comments, pro and con, about the company’s product line. I’d share high fives over the awesomeness of what they liked, I’d explain and hopefully resolve usage related struggles, and I’d frequently take their feedback and feature request and get them into the hand of the right people. As a user, I wanted the product to be world-class, easier, more feature rich and always on the cutting edge, well ahead of the competition, and as an employee, I had the opportunity to influence those directions.

I plan to do so here as well.

The team behind Videobox is a tightly knit forward thinking group of motivated, creative and enthusiastic contributors. There’s not here just to meet the status quo, but to shift paradigm, think outside the box, and provide our customers with a best-of-class user experience. Perhaps that’s why I feel so at home, because It’s my goal as well.

I’m ramping up, learning the ropes, and working on defining and delivering a set of features and improvements in the near future that’ll knock your socks, or the apparel of your choice, right off. You’ll be hearing from me here as these innovation roll out, and I’ll respond to your blog comments as often as possible as well.

The year ahead will be a rewarding one for our customers. We’re improving things you already use and more importantly, we’re working on things you’d never imagined.

- Jeff

PS: Everybody have a safe and pleasant holiday season.

The Best of the Best Awful Porn Titles

Whenever a porn star is mentioned in the news (cough, Tiger Woods, cough), a few of the titles she’s appeared in are usually named to…I don’t know, make people laugh at her? They’re usually pretty run of the mill (Hot Secretaries Who Do Anal #72), but there are some truly awful/hilarious porn movies out there that CNN has never had the reason/balls to mention. Here are some of my favorites:

Best Pun: Cummy Bears


Runners up: Furgeddabou Tits, Hello Titty, Orifice Politics, MILF & Cookies
