I was watching something recently that was shot only a few months ago with Amber Rayne, and I guess I'd kinda forgotten she's been in the business for nine years now. And amazingly in that time--a veritable eternity in porn careers--she's bucked the trend of so many veteran performers and hasn't destroyed her body, gotten married, or softened her performances one bit! :-)
I'd say 2-3 years for their actual career, but longer lasting fanbase with the web and its trove of archived material. How many of us have "discovered" a performer only to learn she did a few scenes and has not been in anything in months or even years?
And of course we have the outliers like the amazing Nina Hartley who's had the longevity of a male porn star--without the creepiness.
A part of me hopes that Hillary Clinton stays away from the 2016 presidential race, if just to get Joe Biden to run instead and hear some more of his priceless gaffes. He's like that uncle at Thanksgiving who's had a little too much to drink...except he's the Vice President.
Somewhat anti-social, in both real life and online.
I don't Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tinder, Chatroulette, etc., and am probably won't anytime soon. Obviously I'm pretty happy to be here on PU, but I just can't share that with everyone in real life, while the sheer ignorance and knee-jerk prejudices of more mainstream sites make my blood boil. Personally I just get more out of socializing in real life than looking up old classmates (why would I want to reconnect with all assholes who made school so shitty?) or see newborn baby pics (I simply don't care about your children), though I do have my limits.
I guess this means I'm introverted because being around other people constantly, especially in bigger groups, just gets exhausting after a while and I need some time to "decompress/recharge" on my own. If you're an outgoing social person this can be hard to see as not weird and even harder to explain. And it certainly doesn't help that there now seem to be social groups for people and their interests that I always thought were, at least in part, to get away from bullshit traditional social obligations--atheist "churches" are the most blatant example. Does everything require a community?
A quote from the movie Heat sums up my feelings: "I'm alone, I am not lonely."
Can't say I'm a fan of this niche, as it seems to be more about what someone is feeling than can ever really be shown in porn, but Kink has always piqued my curiosity to say the least. And the now dormant Pissing.com made some lovably deviant material in its time.
They do seem to be in love with longer scene lengths on other sites, so maybe that's the reason behind "the lack of 1920x1080." I assume that's the case with this site as well, because you just don't want a 1080i download of an hour-plus long scene.
I'd like to think I'm smarter than average but show me a couple of well edited teaser videos and I can easily make some stupid decisions. So I'd say I'm pickier than average because I'm pretty specific about what I like and don't like in porn, regardless of the current trends.
A lot of the "mainstream" stuff just bores the hell out of me and is largely a turnoff, not to mention the growing celebrified aspect of porn stars with inane Twitter feeds and convention appearances. And I find the current porn star look--swollen lips, sculpted breasts, Cleopatra makeup, and "girly" tattoo--absurdly unattractive and only vaguely sexual at best.
My Fair Lady's Eliza Doolittle-esque cockney accent isn't exactly my idea of a beautiful voice, but not all English accents are that bad. Some American ones can be frightening--New York and New Jersey come to mind--while others like Southern accents can go either way.
"Yes, maybe"...then I watched it and my nausea told me otherwise! Curiosity killed the cat, and the porn hound.
However, first coming across porn when I was younger definitely developed my interest in the illicit arts! The fetishes seem to have been hardwired in me already, I just had to find depictions of them.
I use Firefox's built-in blocker and it works reasonably well, minus the annoying "Please Take Our Survey!" shit a lot of otherwise legitimate sites dump on you.
Unfortunately I've found NoScript a time-consuming add-on, even if eventually effective. But my favorite add-on (though it doesn't affect pop-ups) is the free AdBlocker Plus for Firefox--no more ads in streaming videos!
With regards to whom I've had sex with, I'd consider myself straight. But then I also hate sports, enjoyed Brokeback Mountain, and am not viscerally enraged by two men kissing in public, or really doing anything else for that matter.
The question reminds me of Gore Vidal, who on being perpetually asked about his orientation wrote that there is "no such thing as being gay, only gay sexual acts." Gore refusing to call himself gay may be more of a result of the era in which he grew up and became a published writer than anything else.
There's an enlightening paragraph from that article that explains my own irritation with our cultural obsession with labels and definitions: "The word homosexual, said Vidal, was invented in the 1890s and heterosexual in the 1930s: 'To create categories is the enslavement of the categorized because the aim of every state is total control over the people who live in it. What better way is there than to categorize according to sex, about which people have so many hang-ups?'"
I do think it mostly is just another bullshit social construct to control and divide people. Why else would we care about such things as "What makes a real man?" if not to simply invent arbitrary rules to further discriminate against people. Taken to its extreme it convinces idiots to decree that a man can't have anal sex with a woman because it's "gay," but watching two women have sex is somehow the height of male heterosexuality. It's that sort of boneheaded logic that's made the issue all the more unimportant to me.
LOL! I didn't think so either, Yankee, otherwise I would have had a serious calcium deficiency starting around my early teens years (though I did drink a lot milk then). I know evolution can be weird at times but it would be hard to see how we evolved to simultaneously fire out millions of sperm while also losing calcium. :-0
I like to rely on that golden rule of golf: "Play it where it lies."
If it seems appropriate for the scene, then that's how I want it to end. So a facial isn't always required, certainly not when it's done so hastily like a grenade's about to explode. But if the performer is into it on the receiving end--because honestly, it feels good for the shooter no matter what his "target" is--then a facial can be totally fine. When the poor gal is closing her eyes I don't think she's that into it, or at least doesn't have the thespian talents, and I'd rather it be done somewhere else.
Facials in real life are like meteors. More common than we'd like to think, and can be cool to watch when they occur, but most people would rather not be in their path.
When the guy doesn't come at all I say it's a little weird, and I'm usually thinking How the hell did he not[i] come after all that?! Those always seem the most unnatural.
I joined PuffyNetwork myself a couple months ago and was quite happy with the sites...well, W&P was really my only interest. I would say that this site is pleasurably unique in shooting well--lighting, resolution, longer scenes--in a genre that too often doesn't get this treatment, instead relegating it to shitty, creepy, sites that have seemed to think that simply shooting "fetish" content makes up for a measurable amount of quality.
And to top it all off they have the crazy idea to depict the performers actually enjoying it, instead of the fetish=sadistic treatment angle that too many sites have gone for over the years. Who would have thought to make the content in porn appear to be pleasurable?
My main complaint would be, like RagingBuddhist raged in his review of PuffyNetowrk, that the download speeds were inconsistent and all too frequently slow, at least for the larger 1GB+ size files they have so many of. A growing problem, as the site builds up its lecherous library and you really want to get the most for your money. (But if you're into it, you damn sure will wait on every single file!)
I have joined sites where they first ask for your email as a username and then a password you make up, which they use to email you to confirm you're not some bot or spammer, but I was always well aware of the price(s) ahead of time.
Hopefully I'm not the only guy who thinks that (file) size doesn't matter, though my hard drives would disagree (some of the emails in my spam folder would also seem to disagree, almost to the point of making me think they're not reputable sources!).
But I do like larger resolutions, thinking somehow that one day I'll be using a projector to display my downloads instead of some creaky LCD monitor, thus the higher resolution the better. Of course this isn't the kind of thing you share with a family and probably not even most friends, so it'll probably require a bit of antisocial madness (and probably a house with good insulation if I'm playing them on surround sound). Maybe I'll even be ranting to myself, growing a beard and locked in alone, á la Leonardo Dicaprio as Howard Hughes. A man can dream. :-0
LOL! You do start off a lot of reviews with that "this site is definitely NOT for everyone" warning, a problem I share whenever I start a new thread, but it's also a pretty tempting warning which I think is part of the appeal of porn in general.
Roxy seems to be a prime example of how to continue to make it in the changing economics of the porn industry, at least if shooting primarily from home provides enough excitement, and apple-in-ass content doesn't provide too much. She's also one of those naughty-but-nice Florida performers that's making a living with some pretty "unique" talents that not a lot of other porn stars even seem willing to try (Naughty Alysha is the other one that immediately comes to mind).
But I think if you've heard of Roxy Raye then you probably know what you're getting into, and if not her Twitter photos makes it pretty clear what she's willing to do--double anal fisting, for example...unless that's normal for women on Twitter, I'm not on there very often. Then again, if you ever mistakenly subscribe to this content then at least you will have some interesting anecdotes for your next dinner party conversation (or therapist!). ;-)
