Best of the Worst Titles Redux

In December ’09, I did a post about the best of the best awful porn titles on VideoBox. Since that time, Porn Valley has continued its fine naming tradition and we’ve continued to post movies with ridiculous titles – some funny, some gross, a few nonsensical.

Here are a few of my favorites from the last 5 months or so.

Hog Humpers
BBW videos always get stuck with the absolute worst titles. The most epic of all time is, of course, Fuck My Gut Butt. Which is probably not offensive if you have a gut butt? I’m not sure. But I will say that Hog Humpers leans a little more toward the mean side.

My suggestions for new, kindlier BBW titles: Rubenesque Romps, Zaftig Encounters and Full-Figured Fucks.
Relax, He’s My Step Dad
I will not relax, thank you. This is creepy as hell. And the pruny, bespectacled gentleman pulling down Gracie Glam’s shirt on the cover is skin-crawl inducing.

On a vaguely related note, someday Joey Silvera’s going to make a movie called Tranny Step MILFs. And when that day comes, you can congratulate me because that was my title. I gave him full permission to use it because I know it’s gonna be a huge hit.

Squirting: Who’s For Real and Who’s Faking?

squirting
As of today, VideoBox has 135 DVDs and over 1,000 scenes featuring female ejaculation, also known as squirting. It’s a popular genre and it seems like while the ability to squirt among the general population is pretty rare, porn is just chock full of female ejaculators.

I don’t doubt that some women secrete fluid when they have an orgasm. On the other hand, many folks in the porn industry say that faking is rampant and what viewers think is female ejaculate is often actually pee. People like Annie Cruz in her interview with Ropeadope:

It’s a shame no fans can see what happens behind the scenes of these shoots. I’ve been up-close and personal with a lot of other “squirters” in porn, and the truth is in the taste and smell even if it comes out clear. Also, if you see a girl “squirting” a steady stream for several seconds, it usually means she’s pissing. For me personally, I have an orgasm when I squirt.

There are clearly squirting pretenders out there, passing their pee off as lady jizz. How to tell who’s for real and who’s full of piss? (ha) Read on for some industry insight and some examples from the VideoBox archives.

Consumers to be Charged in Obscenity Case?

obscenity-trial
In 1969, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on the case of Stanley v Georgia, unanimously concluding that a person has the right to watch pornography in the privacy of his or her own home. In the decision, Justice Thurgood Marshall wrote:

Whatever may be the justifications for other statutes regulating obscenity, we do not think they reach into the privacy of one’s own home. If the First Amendment means anything, it means that a State has no business telling a man, sitting alone in his own house, what books he may read or what films he may watch. Our whole constitutional heritage rebels at the thought of giving government the power to control men’s minds.

With this in mind, the news that federal prosecutors in Washington D.C. are attempting to force a company to turn over records that divulge the names and addresses of people who purchased “obscene” materials is puzzling at best and frightening at worst.

A company named only as Company X has been served with three Grand Jury subpoenas requesting business records and 2257 documentation – not uncommon or unreasonable in a prosecution of this type. But the fourth subpoena demands “a copy of records that show the identity of all movies sold or distributed, including the date of each transaction, payment received, and method and date of each of each shipment, from customer purchases” from the company’s website that occurred during 15-day windows in December 2007 and April 2008.

The company offered invoices with customer names and addresses blacked out, but the Dept of Justice demanded the originals that included personal information for everyone who purchased adult videos from this company in those time periods. While the judge presiding over the Grand Jury had the good sense to reject the prosecutors’ insistence that the documents show personal customer information, the motives of the Justice Department are open to speculation.

Could the DoJ be planning to go after consumers of adult materials in the future? It’s hard to say, but important to note that while possessing obscene materials is not a crime, receiving them is. I’m not sure how a person comes to possess anything without first receiving it, but the bottom line is that the feds may be considering stepping over a boundary that would put porn consumers in jeopardy.

Even though VideoBox has content standards and a business model that make it an extremely unlikely target for government witch hunts, I felt it was important that we all, as consumers of adult entertainment, know what’s happening elsewhere in the world of porn. The Grand Jury hasn’t made any indictments yet, so let’s hope that rationality prevails and Company X (whoever they are) doesn’t end up like Rob Zicari, Janet Romano or Max Hardcore.

Eternal Love, Scene 6 Michelle Wild

A short haired Michelle reunites with long lost love Tony De Sergio. Tony pulls down Michelle’s dress, revealing her gorgeous breasts. Titty sucking. Spoon fucking. Tony eating out Michelle from below as Michelle has one foot planted on the seat of the couch and one foot up on the backrest. Doggie vag, doggie anal. Michelle giving head to Tony, leading to an open mouth facial. Much of the cum settling on Michelle’s chin. Post cum head. I thought Michelle looked exceptionally beautiful here, although a few members weren’t enamored with her short hair.

Big Black Creamy Asses #2, Scene 3 Sydnee Capri

Love the tease segment with the milk being poured over Sydnee’s gorgeous butt as she shakes it up, interspersed with her flicking tongue. Scene progresses through cowgirl, side saddle, reverse cowgirl, and missionary with multiple P2M breaks. Sydnee takes a big load in her mouth and swallows it down.

Small Boobs + Short Hair = Great Head?

header0104a
I was reading a review of The Nikki Jayne Experiment which was posted to VideoBox on 12/23/09. The review was written by zarinafan (this name sounds oddly familiar to me but I can’t place it – anyone?) at Adult DVD Talk. In reviewing the Veronique Vega scene, zarinafan maintains the awesome head given by Veronique proves his theory that when it comes to adult performers, the smaller the boobs and the shorter the hair – the better the head. Veronique is not exactly a member of the itty bitty titty committee (34B according to IAFD), but everything is relative, and by pornstar standards I guess her breasts are closer to modest than ginormous.

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).

Are Women the Next Big Porn Market?

womenwatchpornThis month in Oprah Magazine, there’s an article about porn for women that’s been causing a stir in the media. Like most of these types of articles, it starts by citing dubious statistics about the numbers of women who visit porn sites:

In the first three months of 2007, according to Nielsen/NetRatings, approximately one in three visitors to adult entertainment Web sites was female; during the same period, nearly 13 million American women were checking out porn online at least once each month.

I’ve been working in this industry for almost 7 years. Every year or so, “porn for women” comes up. In the beginning, I bought into the idea that most women like features and most men like gonzo, but over the years I’ve come to realize that women’s tastes are just as diverse as men’s – and that the market for “women’s porn” is not nearly the size that Candida Royalle would have you think.

No matter what Nielsen says, I simply don’t think there’s any way that one third of visitors to porn sites are female. But I could be wrong. Which is why I’m posting these two polls (one for men and one for women). It’ll be interesting to see if a hidden female viewership will emerge.

Two months ago in this post, Alison informed us of the emergence and popularity of porn parodies. Intrigued by the concept, I’ve since acquired titles based on two classic television series, The Brady Bunch and Bewitched. In today’s post we’ll begin our look at Not Bewitched XXX. Part 2 of the article will follow in roughly 48 hours. I’ll visit Not The Brady’s XXX in a future blog entry. With a cast including Aurora Snow, Eva Angelina, Jenna Haze, Nina Hartley, Sasha Grey, and Teagan Presley, Not Bewitched XXX has the potential to be a very enjoyable release.
