Plot-lines in Porn Movies (Safe for work)

Jack Horner films are the pornos with the best stories

South Africa’s TopTV is desperately trying to get three pay TV adult channels off the ground. Why? Because people like to watch porn. Well, almost everyone likes to watch porn.

TopTV’s bid hit a snag when a morality group stepped in to put the kibosh on people enjoying their pornography via television.

Porn on TV and not the internet? I’m just as confused as you are. I don’t even watch TV on TV anymore. The internet is where I watch all my TV. But hey, we’re not here to judge.

TopTV CEO Eddie Mbablo issued a statement today that the proposed pornography channel would only feature porn with storylines.

He went on to say, “If you check the dictionary definition of porn, you will realise that porn is content that has no artistic merit. What we’re promoting here is scripted narrative material that could be watched by couples.”

Well, actually Mr. Mbablo, pornography is obscene writing, images, photography, etc. with no artistic merit. If porn was content that had no artistic merit, pretty much every major motion picture release of the last five years could be considered pornography (aside from a few good ones, obviously).

Regardless, Mr. Mbablo’s plan to screen only plot-centric porn movies made me think of purpose of plot in porn movies. For the most part, plot in porn movies seem to be universally hated. And if plot-lines in porn movies aren’t universally hated, they’re at least skipped or ignored by the general public. But why? Are the plot-line in porn movies that bad?

I mean, think of Digital Playground’s smash hit Pirates. There’s a cut of Pirates that has an R rating because it features only the story and no sex. Surely that says enough about the plot, the characters, the performance, and Pirates as a whole if it was able to sustain itself as an actual movie and not just a porno. And who can say that was a fluke? I’m sure other porn movies will have solid enough stories to hold their own as heavily edited, low-budget mainstream films.

Personally, I love plot-lines in porn movies. Working for Sex.com, I see a lot of porn pictures and porn movies. Porn movies where the girl is dancing around rubbing oil on herself until a man walks into frame and they start going at it really don’t interest me. Call me whatever names you can think of but it’s the truth. The reason I’m not interested in these kinds of porn movies is because there is no set-up.

Maybe it’s just me, but for me I know I need some context for why the sex is happening to truly be interested in it. The plot-line doesn’t have to the conventional It can be an elaborate swashbuckling fantasy like Pirates or it can be as simple as pizza being delivered to a lonely housewife, if there’s a situation established it enhances the sex in the scene because I know that there are stakes in the sex being had.

Knowing the characters and the situation is important. Why else would parody porn movies taken off the way they have if it didn’t? Ya see, when you’re watching a porn parody, you’re watching sex between characters you’re already invested in and you’re in a situation that are familiar to you as a viewer. You can then contextualize the sex and enjoy the eroticism on an artistic level.

Does any of this make sense or am I just making a strong case for my own insanity?
