SHOOT ME, PLEASE WE FIND OUT WHAT’S BEHIND THE SCENES OF ONE OF THE MOST MORBIDLY FASCINATING JOBS IN THE WORLD: ADULT CINEMA.

Is porn a parallel reality to what’s happening in real life? Is the reality better than the porn? How has porn changed with the arrival of the internet? A porn director reveals all. Here’s the situation: a few years ago, you’d go to the disco and after a few drinks, if you were lucky, you pulled. Then after a couple of dinners, you got to sleep with the person in question. Today, if you fancy getting laid, you pick up your mobile, open up one of the numerous apps that exist for hooking up and within a quarter of an hour you’ve got the person you have chosen, from the existing catalogue, in your bed. “It is evident that social networks and these types of apps have made fucking easier and this fast-food approach has also influenced the porn industry, because porn is a reflection of reality.” So claims Mr X, a director and screenwriter for the porn movie business who wishes to remain anonymous. Until now, porn movies recreated the sexual fantasies of their public; many scenes shoed people who’d had sex with strangers in casual encounters, something very similar to what is happening today with sex. “In this regard, we can say that the social networks are contributing to making us feel desired, making your sexual fantasy, which you once had through a porno movie, become a reality,” says Mr X. “This causes porn to take a secondary role because sex is easier to consume.”

Until now, porn movies recreated the sexual fantasies of the public; many scenes showed people who’d had sex with strangers in casual encounters, something very similar to what is happening today with sex.

This has all had an influence when making the films. “The arrival of the internet, even though it put the world market within anyone’s reach, it also brought with it piracy and a great change: people no longer want to see a plot, they just want sex scenes. This is why these days internet clips are recorded with a lot more scenes than a movie with a plot.” However, although this has given rise to an X-rated cinema that is more homemade, Mr X makes it clear that professional recordings are still being made. “There are those films in which the director throws the actors onto the bed and they just do what they want, but the film lasts as long as the shagging. But there are still those we direct. That is why I talk to them, I ask them what they like to do, how far they can go, if they can give a little more. I mark out the postures; some are impossible because we must not lose sight of the fact that it is a fantasy. In a porn movie, the actors have to be seen to look like gods, oozing sensuality.” That helps explain why not everyone is up to it. It is not enough to just be good-looking or have good, er, “attributes”. “They need to be fit. Some of them are authentic athletes, both for the hours they work and for the postures they execute,” says Mr X. That said, he is clear about which actors are usually the best. “There are those that become porn actors because they have an exhibitionist character. They like to provoke and often get turned on by people watching. These actors usually have other jobs and they do this more as a hobby, so these usually work out better than those that get into it because they are good-looking, models or go-go dancers, and they know that getting into this world is a promotion for them. Their prestige is going to go up or they are going to get other jobs.” If Andy Warhol said that in the future we would all like to have 15 minutes of fame, nowadays it’s the case that if anyone told you that the recording was not going to remain in the annals of history, who wouldn’t want to be a porn star one day and feel admired and desired by a load of people? “What really turns the actors on at the end of filming is that the people see them as authentic sex gods, because filming for them is a real disappointment, given that it is a job – and a hard one at that.”
