No More Storylines in Porn Films

Posted: July 8th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
No More Storylines in Porn FilmsSubmit Comment
When pornographic movies first started including storylines and dialogue, it was a big deal and changed the industry. But that is now over, since pornographers are focusing less on narrative arcs and more on the action (sex). The reason.... the internet.

"On the Internet, the average attention span is three to five minutes," said Steven Hirsch, co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment. "We have to cater to that."

Vivid, one of the most prominent pornography studios, makes 60 films a year. Three years ago, almost all of them were feature-length films with storylines. Today, more than half are a series of sex scenes, loosely connected by some thread that can be presented separately online. Other major studios are making similar shifts.

That's cool, but the porn industry is probably going to suffer now that sites like YouPorn and Pornotube are free and appeal directly to that 3 to 5 minute attention span. I haven't bought a porn in like two years.

Haha, i watched Pirates: Scagnettis Revenge and was actually more captivated by the plot then the sex. Pirates actually had more plot then the Pirates of the Carribean sequels.

this is not exactly true

if you havent noticed, the biggest selling pornos have been the "this is not the...." series of take-offs

i believe that purveyors of porn are getting tired of only sex and really do want to see a bit more
BigTate writes:

The picture is from Pirates, by Vivid. It's exactly the kind of "film" they will no longer make. It's the closest I've ever seen to a real porn-film.

good. f*cking story lines were just boring. No one watches them for the award winning performances and sets they madeand gave. its for the f*cking and the over the top bullsh*t they try to pull off which i beleive they call acting.
