Why is porn for profit dying?

porn250When even the porn industry is going through a revolution…

There used to be a time that going to peep shows and live sex shows was the de rigeur amongst horny men and the gals that got their kicks this way. Of course that no longer exists? Why? Because the world is suddenly getting braver. Doesn’t make sense? Read on…

In a report released by the Daily Beast they point out 5 reasons why the way you watch and participate in porn is now undergoing huge changes.

THe first reason we are led to believe involves piracy. What does that mean? Well perhaps the quote below can sum it up.

“I don’t think people are just going to do what porn stars do for free and put it on the Internet,” said porn star Dana DeArmond who if you must know specializes in anal and double penetration. Something we wonder if you are willing to perform and record for free (or even at all) on the web. But there it is – internet privacy.

The next reason offered involves what industry insiders like to call ‘Video on Demand Meets the Masturbating Fan.’ Mmh, what does that mean?

Says Pete Housley of Candid Tweet “If you think about the costs of making a movie, and then selling it for 6 or 7 cents a minute, well, that is great for Hollywood. The problem for porn is that a guy watches 4 or 5 minutes, jerks off and is done. So, residual payouts are becoming less and less.”

Aha, now that’s clearer. What about reason number 3?

The Taboo Is Gone; “People used to be ashamed to say their girlfriends did porn. That is gone. Anyone can afford a Web site now,” said Housley.

Does that explain the up stair neighbors bumping along at 4am with their portable camera?

Number 4: Online Gaming. That is you can jerk off once (or twice or more ) with porn but with video games there’s no jerking off involved so you play for hours. Wow, we always thought it was the other way around. Our mistake…

Number 5: Porn Star Hookers.

Why fight for the diminishing supply of work in the porn business, doing those double penetrations, when you have fans who will pay you more for basic missionary-style sex with them? It is a logic that is increasingly making sense to some porn stars as fans are able to connect ever more directly with them via Facebook and Twitter.

So kids that in a nutshell is why being a porn star and a sleaze boy hustling off the street is a dying art. Thank god for the internet and your web camera. Now where did we leave our dirty magazines?
