Where Has All The Porn Gone?

Each generation bemoans the passing of its cultural touchstones with a things-were-better-when-we-were-young nostalgia that cannot be challenged. In many cases it is a subjective case of looking through rose-tinted glasses but in some cases things might indeed have been better.

Some people who say this was true of porn.

Porn’s heyday might just have been the 70’s, when some mainstream dirty movies, like Deep Throat, Behind The Green Door and even cartoon fare like Fritz The Cat enjoyed infamy and large audiences. Sure, stag films were still the rage and plenty of the old rain-coat crowd were enjoying daily showings in downtown sleazy theaters, but porn had a place all its own in the cultural landscape, tripl xxx really mean something, and not just everybody got to see a porn movie.

Were the movies better because of this?

When porn films were supplanted by porn hone videos some say the death knell for porn was sounded. Suddenly we could bring the films into our homes and directors began making movies strictly on video for video, eschewing the natural higher quality film ensures.

Nowadays almost all porn has gone to the net…another nail-in-the-coffin as far as many old porn connoisseur is concerned. Not only are we literally watching fucking and sucking on a smaller screen-from movie theater, to T.V. screen to now, in some cases, our phones!-being able to stream what you want when you want might seem a great convenience but the sheer amount of pirated content we can get online cuts so far into porn movie maker’s bottom lines that there are already less porn movie makers still alive. And though DVD sales do see a rich healthy return, and some high big-budget fare does break through, the business of porn might have overtaken porn itself because if you’re in porn you have to be so careful about the business these days.

Does all this fretting, monetizing, constant stuff streaming at us constantly make for better stuff?
