Why does modern porn suck so bad?


One reason is because the 'actors' (or even models in magazines) rarely look like real people anymore. Take a look at how hot the girls featured in Playboy from the '60s and '70s are compared to nowadays. They looked beautiful, but also like regular, everyday people engaging in naughty poses. This sense of naughtiness is virtually non-existant in porn now, and with it we've lost the voyeuristic thrill which was always at the heart of great porn.

In fact, the most erotic porn made today is in the realm of the 'amateur' stuff (not all of which, of course, is amateur), which actually recaptures some of that naughtiness (hey, is that my next door neighbor??), and some of the lust which is absent from the mechanical physical scripting ("ok, you blow him for 7 minutes, then he fucks you for 4 minutes, then you change positions, and he fucks you for another 3 minutes, then....." ) of modern porno movies.

Even the 'gonzo' type stuff from the '70s, such as the Swedish Erotica shorts, was much superior to current gonzo porn, because it seemed much more real. It seemed like we were looking through a keyhole, which appealed to our voyeuristic urges.

I don't think we can ever recapture the appeal of classic porn -- it's a big business now, and few want to stray from the proven formula. Even so, I think a lot of us want to see a return to the naughtiness, dirtiness, and lust of adult films of yesteryear, rather than today's corporate transactions.
