Features: This is where the adult industry puts a bit of money, although minimally by Hollywood standards, into a film with a plot and a name actress or two. These features are usually well plotted by adult standards which doesnt say much and they often have elaborate sets and costumes, again by adult standards. Most agree that sex films and main stream films will never compete head to head for a variety of reasons. The mixture of sex and a plot is not all that easy to pull off and the reasons vary. Features have a place and many people enjoy them, particularly women. This may be because many women wouldnt view porn if it was just a bunch of men exploding their ejaculate over a womans face and one wonders why that is so. Fact is a plot adds something to a movie but perhaps not an adult movie as many men prefer a woman gets naked, or near naked, a man gets an erection, gives him a blow job and he finishes her off in no time flat. While this is an exaggeration, the truth behind it is clear. Dressing porn stars up in costumes is sexy and visually compelling but it only gets in the way of the sex, many believe. Also dressing up someone like Jenna Jameson or the likes only reminds the audience that she does not have great acting skills although she is smart and oh so sexy. Teen: You must be 18 years or older to participate in an adult movie. The story of Tracy Lords is one of a girl under the age of 18 who falsified her age to get into porn was a nightmare for adult film makers and there have been others. Here is where porn tries to have it both ways. There is a market for teen movies and it is dangerously close to child pornography without going over the line. I am not suggesting that child porn is acceptable as it is not acceptable. Exploitation of children is a crime and that should not change. Using girls under the age of 18 is a crime and should not change. The industry accepts this and by an overwhelming response does not participate in this practice. That being said there is a huge demand for teen porn and while I don't get it I know that many new titles every year attest to this demand. The adult industry has stringently kept under age girls out of the adult films with just a few notable exceptions. At the same time it floods the market with films about teens and girls who look underage, have the bodies of young girls all in the attempt to capture this market. The teen movies are complete with girls with small, natural breasts, slender figures and pig tails. What ever the attraction this genre is here to stay despite its appeal to men and perhaps women who want to see young girls having sex.
Milfs - If you have been under a rock then you may have missed the genre known as MILFS - Mothers I would love to f**k! This genre is "supposed" to be about housewives or other women who have children thus are more mature age wise and are sexually attractive. Some of the attempts to portray a surgically enhanced porn actress as a mother or housewife are amusing. The plot is almost always the male porn star runs into great looking "mom" at the store and propositions her and there just happens to be a camera and sound man with him. They go to his or her place and he is hung like a horse and she has a mature body in that her breasts are naturally or otherwise large and she is a babe in her forties or late thirties. This is appealing as there are women who look like her, but would they actually engage in spontaneous sex with one or two strangers? These fantasy films are hugely popular and some film makers go to great lengths to make them appear unrehearsed. If you watch adult films regularly you will see these milfs regularly in other films. The plot in these films is thin at best and generally follows the script I outlined above. The heat index on these films is fairly low although if you allow yourself to go with the fantasy they can get heated.
Amateur - This line of films is one of the major genre's as many men and women love non pros or ordinary people having sex and these rarely have any production value and the dialog is limited to a few lines and lots of sex. The set ups vary from "Screw my wife, please" and a husband wanting another man to service his wife while he watches. The major problem with sex films of all kinds is trying to film spontaneous sex acts without appearing staged and they usually fail. Staging sex to look spontaneous is difficult for all film makers. One genre that has succeeded to some extent is the gonzo films that have no dialog, and the key element is getting a group of people together and telling them to have sex and multiple cameras simply keep rolling the camera. These are spontaneous as they do not direct the actors and allow them to go for it. Amateur films can also be the "first timers" series that a number of male porn stars have directed. The girls are usually first timers or thereabouts. It is not difficult to get a new girl on film but the problem becomes how do you sell a newcomer, unknown quantity in an already crowded market. Jenna Jameson got her start here but it is not necessary to have never appeared in a film just not yet been seen much. Generally the amateur has sex with the veteran porn star and he "breaks her in". These do have a feel of amateurs as the girls are amateurs in that they are not pros yet. Some girls show potential while others will likely not make it in the big time due to looks, body or just no enthusiasm for their craft. Then there are the hugely popular amateur series such as Homegrown produces where it solicits and creates a very popular line of true amateurs. What these lack in technical prowess they make up for in authenticity. The Playboy Channel has a series called Amateur Home Videos where couples send in tapes for airing and many are downright volcanic and all are genuine with an occasional porn star thrown in, usually male. The series has been running on Playboy for a number of years with no end in sight as couples looking for their sexy 15 minutes of fame. Camera angles vary, lighting is sketchy and the sex is usually in the bedroom or living room but nothing can beat real people having real sex.
Interracial - Although interracial can be any two races generally the term refers to black men and white women. The black dick, white chick variety offers the old taboo of a black guy screwing a white woman and all that goes with it. The fantasy that some have about having sex with a black man, or with a white woman is still alive and well and this genre captures the fantasy. Either black men are better endowed than white men or black men with large members end up in adult films in disproportionate numbers but there are plenty of white actresses to go around. Some of the films are one on one while others center on multiple men known as MMF or male, male, female action. The concept is often about the size of his member and her inability to swallow it or otherwise manage it does get old but those who are new to it may find it spell binding at first. Interracial films are a popular genre in part because the men are extremely well endowed and the women are hot, young, white and did I say hot? The combination makes for some great sex with the forbidden nature of it usually underplayed for the camera.
Girl/Girl - The "Where the Boys aren't" type of films are for those who simply enjoy women on women often with dildos, strap ons and vibrators. Those who love them can't seem to get enough while many heterosexual couples don't find them appealing. These lipstick lesbians are hypnotizing for the lesbian crowd and well should they be as the women are hot and those who truly are at least bisexual heat up the VCR or DVD player. Many films will attempt to appeal to as many genre's as possible in the same film. These films are a good idea for those who aren't sure what turns them on and are open to everything. The film that has a plot, interracial, girl/girl is common or at least some variation thereof.
Group Sex - A favorite as you get to see a variety of actors with a variety of actresses and there is sure to be some coupling that is exciting. There is often so much going on that the viewer can find much to enjoy. Also some have the fantasy of having more than one partner, FFM- female, female and one male or MMF, at one time thus increasing the viewer's enjoyment. Group sex and gang bang are interchangeable terms although gang bangs can be one woman and up to 100 or more men. These novelty films are a fact in the industry and can be very boring as the plot is absent and the idea of watching one woman service 100 plus men with a blow job or actual vaginal entry over two days is a yawner. Couples should probably avoid these films and leave them to the fans of the female star as they get to see her get it multiple times.
Mature - This can be anything from 35 to 70 years old and can be incendiary depending on the couple. Many older women can make a scene sizzle while others make you wince. Generally the women are the mature ones having sex with younger men. There are older men in porn but when they have a scene with a younger woman it is rarely on a mature tape. Fact is age is a huge factor for a couple of obvious reasons. It helps to look good naked in adult films and older folks don't often have the bodies to carry it all off. These mature women can be rather young in reality, but in adult films 30 years old is the new 50 and 40 is the new 60 so prime time for women is 18 to 25. Men who can get wood on cue can perform into their late 30's and even beyond if they are gifted or use Viagra or other male enhancement products. For women it is primarily looks as a couple of pounds are not an asset, while for men looks are important but the ability to get and stay hard is harder than it looks. Their physical attractiveness is secondary as proven by the likes of Ron Jeremy, otherwise known as the Hedgehog. Men simply arent usually in porn because of their looks although many of the younger leads are indeed easy on the eyes and enjoy both the physical and emotional attributes that make them a star to women. But make no mistake, in porn, getting it hard and keeping it hard for a release on cue will make for a fairly long career. No pun intended. Try it in front of a director, camera man, sound man, two other actors, your female star and multiple cuts and you will agree that these guys are amazing, although the use of the little blue pill is reportedly routine.
Anal Sex - In the past the number of actresses who refused to engage in anal sex was higher than now. Accepted more than before there are still female actresses who won't do anal play. Many wait until later in their career to accept the job of anal sex. Whether couples enjoy anal sex on camera is often based on whether they engage in it themselves. Many second and third tier actresses are forced to do anal sex as there is a demand for these videos but a decided lack of girls to do the work. They are forced in an economic manner, not brutal force, as no one is forced to perform in any adult videos. Many actresses refuse to engage in interracial sex as well, while some refuse to do girl/girl. The problem is in an industry that is so small a refusal to do certain acts may hinder their ability to get regular work and this economic hardship causes girls to do work they might not like. This is coupled with the fact that many of these girls are small in stature while the male actors may be quite the opposite. There is no doubt that men with big penises are often in the highest demand. Size does indeed matter as does the ability to get and maintain a firm erection. So pity the girl who does anal sex on camera as she may have to endure some serious pain for her craft.
