Things You Never Knew About Porn http://goo.gl/8WnS4s
A Reddit thread has asked people in the porn industry, "What is something the viewers really don't know?" and the answers are … enlightening. I can't vouch for the experience of the writers, but all claim to have worked in the porn industry or to have been closely involved in it at some point or another. I probably don't need to tell you that parts of this get very graphic, so proceed with caution if you're of a delicate disposition. Or eating right now.
- Porn sets smell bad.
Sex stinks when it's not your own.
- It's not all work, work, work.
There is a lot of pausing, a lot of laughing, a lot of texting, etc, in between shots.
- The "performers" are usually in control.
Anyone being penetrated can call cut.
- The Pokémon Porn Parody Will Break Your Brain
Guys aren't just walking around with massive erections for hours.
"It's actually pretty hard to get and maintain an erection on set. Making porn is pretty unsexy.
- Porn takes ages.
I've been in over 40 pornos, they're usually half an hour or so long for each scene. But I'm on set for anywhere from five to 12 hours.
- The "money shot" is often fake.
If a guy can't produce, there's a million ways to fake it, and they are used much more readily than you'd think. No director wants to stand around while a guy who's been hard for three hours tried to jerk out a tiny little spit of cum. They'll move right to the tricks [like] running a tube up the back of the guys dick, giving the guy a handful of milky lube, directly shooting lotion onto it.
- Safety is key.
We undergo a rigorous testing protocol called the PASS system in which we are tested every two weeks for a whole panel of the best STD tests on the market
- Everyone gets hangry.
I remember being hungry a lot because I'd worry about being bloated on camera, etc. … there was one time I was filming and the director kept telling me off for staring at a plate of sandwiches for the crew. That's when I realized porn wasn't my vocation in life and that I preferred a nice ham and cheese triangle-cut sandwich over money and dick.
- Orgasms are a mixed bag.
The women are faking it most of the time. We would try to cast couples or friends who are already intimate with each other.
- It is not shot chronologically as one long scene.
There's usually time between the guy pulling out and the money shot where he's standing there furiously masturbating for a few minutes in front of everyone watching and waiting for him to come. Really fucking awkward.
- In fact, things are often shot back-to-front.
A lot of the time the cumshot is filmed first, then the sex. Means the guys last longer for the actual penetration.
- Anal sex scenes can involve a lot of prep.
Seriously. Major enema action, waxing and bleaching, sometimes even fasting the day before so that very little poop is in your tubes. The enemas / fasting / bleaching / waxing are done mostly by porn actresses — for various reasons ... but mostly because their butt needs to conform to porn standards on camera.
- The angles are all fake.
When you see that close-up of the dick going in and out of her, it's because they positioned to the side, and only like an inch or two is going in and out.
- That "we've just used this random girl off the street" porn is all fake.
All performers have to sign papers and do contracts, so the girls they randomly pick up off the street was planted there from the start.
- Size really doesn't matter.
There is no indicator for dick size. Feet, hands, height, Asian, it's all B.S. The only stereotype that held true were black men's dicks being huge.
