It seems the average porn star is 5'5" tall, weighs 117lb, B cups and has brown hair.
What a piece of research - he must have been bored to tears after watching all those films

‘No,’ I said. ‘I’ve spent all this time analysing the demographic profiles and filmographies
of ten thousand adult performers. There is a difference.’

.....Exactly what I and hundreds of other gentleman researchers do. We are often mistaken and treated
the wider community as perverts and sex freaks - when in fact it is a highly specialised and intellectual
pursuit towards gaining a deeper further understanding of the Passions and of sexuality and the sexual
nature of socioistic ritual. http://serve.mysmiley.net/angel/innocent.gif

Millward emphasised that women get paid a lot more for doing more hardcore stuff than "easier work":
men get a third of the pay women get for the same films.

Blatant sexism as males hired for labor have to fulfill the movie contract in full before any monies are
imbursed to the contractee - just as females are. Having to bar up on cue isn't easy if you happen to
have retake after retake on the set of "The Attack of Lady Thunderthighs Part Deux"!! :bored:

I know a porn star.
When I say 'star', he was in one movie and got stiffed (pun intended:}) on fees. However, in the long run (pun also intended:}) he recouped that in free drinks, reputation and general kudos by being in an actual made for video porn movie. Having the nickname "pornstar" is something money can't buy.

This was back in the good ol' days when porn was locally produced. Like manufacturing, porn has now become the bastion of third world sweatshops, to the detriment of the local industry :sad:.

His film was made in a Gold Coast unit by a bunch of enthusiastic moonlighters from one of the TV networks using their work gear, a few resident hookers, a mate's abode and Him. It sold quite well on the local VHS Dirty Movie circuit. :cool:
His primary occupation? Engineer. :E

"Back of an envelope" calculation: If you spent an average of just 3 minutes evaluating each of the 10,000 porn stars = total time required would be 30,000 minutes (or 500 hours). So this study is entirely plausible / feasable IMHO. Especially when you consider, that anywhere between 2 and 3 or more of the 10,000 porn stars had been performing together concurrently during the suggested theoretical average 3 minute observation and footage or whatever, therefore shortening the overall study duration to perhaps even under 250 hours. :8

Please excuse my hazy memory, but unless I'm mistaken, there was once a "pope" joke on a similar subject:

The Pope arrives for one of his papal visits in a country where prostitution is rife. One of the journalists questions His Holiness as he steps off the plane: "Will you be visiting and administering to all the prostitutes here during your visit?" The Pope replies: "Are there any prostitutes here...?!"

That statement made all the headlines in the newspapers the next day: "Pope steps off plane, immediately asks if there are any prostitutues here...?" :E

To be quite frank, I can only commiserate with my fellow human-beings ca. 2013. Apparently, many of us can and do regularly devote several hours trawling the internet for something which titillates our sexual urges. The end-reult being 2-3 minutes of sexual pleasure, intense or otherwise but in no way reflecting all those wasted hours... :sad:

As one with a degree in Pornology I say the pleasure is in the trawling and not
just the 2-3 minutes "end-reult"! :E

Speak for yerself.

Apart from having a "younger" woman with me, so I don't have to search the net for hours to get the sexual pleasure I need as it's across the room for me (but does tire me out from time to time), I have NEVER lasted only "2-3 minutes".

And I don't need to search the net for hours for porn that suits my "needs", I can find what I need in the time it takes you to crack one off (which means I guess you're looking for some REALLY weird stuff that is maybe even illegal in Holland).

I still don't understand in what we are a better society with all this porn available everywhere, on internet to start with.
I truly believe and acknowledge sex is great, but porn everywhere (what means, let's not be shy, watching somebody else having sex, nothing more than that), well I am not convinced. So if we all watch porn on internet, why not starting to have sex in front of everybody else?
I think people should focus on their own sexual life and keep their wife happy, everything else (watching porn) is at best useless and at worst creates a fantasy not reachable without breaking something (our familly to start with), so some people have to post half naked women pics everywhere to explain to all of us their frustration.
That is sad.
Less porn, more familly time, that's the best option before we all die, because we will. That is called dignity.

In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI ended the Roman Catholic church's absolute ban on the use of condoms (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/the-pope/8148944/The-Pope-drops-Catholic-ban-on-condoms-in-historic-shift.html), the Pontiff announcing that it was now acceptable to use a prophylactic when the sole intention was to “reduce the risk of infection” from Aids.

Before then, 95% of all porn stars who performed without use of condoms, were assumed to be devout Roman Catholics. The other 5%, mostly into BDSM, were also assumed to be devout Roman Catholics, but were not satisfied with just the 3 x "Hail Marys" as penance for their sins.

Dear apostles,

Sex is not about the destination, it's about the journey.

For some it's a very short ;) one. For others, it's a marathon.

Try a few hours of stop 'n go - pure bliss.

If the intention is to arrive as quickly as possible, find a hole in a tree or exercise your arm.

Jeez !

KAG, porn is a bit like cigarettes for some people. Can't stop indulging. I agree that it's a matter of watching other people have sex, which is most likely what any of us would rather be doing than watching it.

A curious pastime, to be sure, and one I don't indulge in any more. When I was younger, it was a now and again. Back when VHS beat Beta Max thanks to porn shops establishing their market in VHS. (And didn't Sony have a moral stance about not wanting to be involved as a porn platform wiht Beta Max? Memory does not serve at the moment ....)

Hello, there, KAG,
By the way, you left a very good response.
"for the betterment of society," or thereabouts. Have I ever done anything for the betterment of society? I supposes it depends on your definition(s). I've done things because I liked doing them, or maybe I thought it would help someone, or a small group of people. But even so, it was because I liked doing whatever it was. Giving blood, or time in the CAP, was that for society- or for the good feeling it gave me?
I like porn. I see things that I like. Including ideas.
Talk about taking care of the Mrs. That sounds great, but not all marriages are the text book marriage. Some are bad. The cause can be the man, some are real arsehoiles, but so are some women.
Some poeple are very private. Others aren't. Right- fantasies are not necessarily reachable- they are fantasies. I have many. (not so much now, i'm too old and too much of a hardcore realist, rather cold).
Well, there's a start.
Bob.
