dracken (246) While I don't expect the acting to be Oscar worthy a bit of talent makes a huge difference in a scene, in my opinion. If nothing else it makes you forget you're watching a porn star and it makes you think there is a real-ish secretary or nurse or school girl having sex...which makes the fantasy better.

Jay G (67) Nothing better than good intensive acting; nothing worse than poor lethargic acting.

"Real"? About as "real" as "reality TV shows."

jd1961 (95) Porn isn't meant to be "real", it's more like a cartoon, so in that sense, acting ability helps.

badandy400 (103) It helps the fantasy along if the girl can act the part. If she is supposed to be innocent she should act that way, or if she is supposed to be sexually aggressive for the scene she should be able to portray that.

Of course, I do not expect great acting, but there should be a little skill involved at least in the top brand films. On the flip side, I do not want attractive women to be scared away because her acting skills are not razor sharp. Not all porn requires a lot of acting.

Also a valid point, do we want "acting" at all? Would we not want the performers to actually enjoy what they are doing? Enjoyment shows immensely on film and we all can see it.

GCode (101) REPLY TO #4 - badandy400 :

Totally agree with the acting at all quote. That's why I put acting ruins a scene solely based on the fact that usually when I tell a model is totally faking an orgasm or just downright bad at acting, the scene is ruined. I'm actually surprised so far that it appears that I'm the only one who put this. However, jd makes a great point as well that porn is kind of like a cartoon, therefore fantasy. So, if a model is acting well or 'the part' as you put it, then the scene will be better.

But, I think this comes down to what people want as 'acting' in their porn. I suppose it can be defined as just the downright demeanor of a model because the scene is fantasy to begin with, so therefore everything captured within the scene is acting to begin with. Or, it could even just be the part that the model is playing, such as innocence or aggressiveness. But, I suppose it could even be how sexually real the scene is compared to acting in terms of the model actually enjoying the actual sexual act within the scene. There probably are more definitions or examples, but I'd say all the above are valid.

However, in terms of this poll and how I personally potray 'acting' (probably mainly because I watch mostly solo scenes) is how sexually turned on the model is within the video in terms of realness. So, fake orgasms and so on, really ruin a scene for me.

Drooler (220) If the model has an ability to act, that means that she can make the scene "more real" as needed. That's what thespians are capable of. I'd say that choice 1 is undoubtedly the answer.

It's a quiz on whether the respondent knows what acting is.

I'd go along with Drooler that a model's acting ability adds or detracts from the value of the scene.

The idea that the quiz reflects the person's view of acting is nice.

I would add that the quiz also reflects the person's appetite or style of eating: when you watch a porn clip, do you shovel it into your mouth and wait for it to digest, or do you go for gourmet style, and try to appreciate the different elements of the scene?

Most porn is better viewed with your eyes closed and your brain turned off.

PinkPanther (46) The way I look at it is that there's the whole issue of charisma and personality - porn without charisma and personality is pretty dang boring - watch MetArt's vids - well, most of them - for how to make vids of naked women with no elements of charisma or personality - on the other side of the spectrum is Karla Spice, a perfect example of why I still am attracted to solo girl sites. The woman can just strut toward the camera with a sexy outfit on, swaying her hips and giving some little smirk and I'm jumping up and down with excitement. Then she'll crack up at some comment made by a friend of hers on set and my heart's beating 3 times as fast as it was a moment before - that's the power of a gorgeous sexy woman that oozes charisma & personality - is that acting? Could be - is it good - hell, yeah!!

pat362 (375) Acting is a must if I want to truly enjoy a porn scene. I'm not talking about the ability for the actress to portray a specific character. That can be the case but it can be as simple as the actress appearing to enjoy the sex scene. Fake moaning and groaning might be fine for some but that tends to leave me limp.

Now if I'm watching a feature or even a small scne with an actual scenario then yes I want the person to be able to act the part. I think Pink Panther is correct about models and acting. It's not just in the porn wold. Most models never make the transition from the print to video. Years of having a photographer telling what you should look like don't prepare you for thinking what you should look like.

RagingBuddhist (65) Absolutely. I've said it on here before - that open mouthed, overplaying of sex is an instant turn-off. If they're watching the camera as if to say, "Look how sexy I am", I turn it off and will even sometimes delete the file. That ought to tell you just how much of a turn-off I think it is - I'm a collector and don't like to delete anything.
