Is Porn Better With a Plot Or Not?

There are two kinds of porn lovers -- avid ones and liars.

And there are two kinds of porn movies -- ones with elaborate plots and tons of dialogue and ones where they just open the door and get it on.

I picked up a bunch of both types at the birthday party for Gawker's Brian Moylan the other night at Luca Lounge.

You see, Gawker is sisters with Fleshbot, so review copies were for there for the taking, along with cupcakes and a guy from San Francisco.

Anyway, after much consideration, I'd have to say I prefer the ones with plots, as long as they don't overwhelm the action and strain to be Orson Welles-ian in scope.

There's something sexy about a setup -- some actual context -- so the sex comes out of a situation rather than just out of the blue.

There's just one problem:

Most porn actors can barely talk!

Maybe they should aim for Chaplinesque?

I want a plot less porn scene full of anal fucking with Gwen Paltrow and finishing with the money spot on her gorgeous face.

For the love of God, don't make pornstars act!  Ouch.  And the one thing worse than pornstars trying to act is forcing them to ad-lib!  My favorite line (forgot which video) was this meatheaded (albeit hot) hunk, in trying to formulate a sentence, said to his "co-star" in trying to get him out of the bar they were in, "Hey...let's get out of here and go somewhere with less..um...ATMOSPHERE!"

Ok..."plot" vs "good dirty talk"...they seem to merge when good street-boy/"straights" [meaning someone you'd actually meet] have a hot hookup...(for men of a certain age, think village trucks)....mmmm! moist.

Plot?  That's what the fast forward button is for.

As Helen Sinclair (Dianne Wiest) said in Bullets Over Broadway: "Don't speak!"

Plotz are good for film, but really stupid in still photos.  I just doubt one is the coach and the other a student in gym class.  But I do like that fantasy with my jr. high school gym teacher, Mr. Prang.  That was really his name!  Coach Dalton was hugely fat and couldn't do anything he made us do (climb a rope, run up and down the bleachers, etc.)

I am a plot lover, but it seems that most of the porn that is available today is just  2 or 3 hours of cut scenes packaged together.  I particulary love the pron parodies, such as Edward Penishands or the Flintbones. And I prefer the bad acting, because it reminds me of my favorite B-movies (anything by Roger Corman or John Waters).

There are two kinds of porn lovers--honest ones and those that claim to prefer plots.

But even when there's a plot, it's usually not that involved, so I say make it minimal and cut to the action.

Agree! Give me some context in my cum shots.

I find plotless porn insipid. I have a hot stash of vintage stuff with actual, albeit contrived plots, but they are infinitely more stimulating than just sudden nudity and faces stuck in orifices. Do NOT dispense with the bad acting - it makes it all the more fun! Baby.

forgive me, but you sound like a hetero man.  Why do you guys like anal so much?  I thought it might be because of a small weenie not having much fun or affect in the vage area.
