Natural porn lover

It was a $25,000 movie that became a $600 million phenomenonInside Deep Throat

It caused an administration to declare war on freedom

It turned buying a ticket into an act of revolution

Deep Throat is generally considered the most profitable motion picture of all time. The movie was released in 1972 and coincided with a time of sexual revolution. “This sexually explicit film unexpectedly became the flashpoint for an unprecedented social and political firestorm – a major cultural phenomenon whose impact continues to affect us today.”

The documentary Inside Deep Throat examines the chasm between the modest intentions of the movie’s makers and the unforeseen legacy they inadvertently created. Released in the U.S. on February 11th, attendance has been high. In the UK, Momentum plan to release the documentary in cinemas in June.


Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I was born in the summer of sex drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, yes, so I’m told, 1967 was a great year. Just imagine all that sexual energy man as I entered the cosmos, inhale deeply and let it out slow.

I’m not prude I’m very liberal and I think that porn done well has its place in society. Porn is not new, it has been around in various forms since humans evolved; initially through drawing and writing with the first nude photos appearing in 1845, these were distributed at art dealerships, instrument makers, and opticians – well I guess its one way of testing a guys eyesight!

Early porn photography was predominantly focused towards men, depicting a variety of hetero, lesbian, and homo acts. Of course modern porn has moved on some and although the female market is still not hugely catered for, there are about 30 women directors producing porn with the female viewer in mind, Candida Royalle being one.


Women do watch porn, a report by Nielsen NetRatings – a company that measures and analyzes Internet usage, showed that 1 in 3 users of porn were women. Over 9 million American women accessed adult sites in September 2003 alone. At Good Vibrations a female owned pleasure box of sexual goodies, women account for 80% of the porn rental and purchase market.

I’d certainly like to see more ‘good’ porn for women. Done well, meaning – good plot, good script, good actors, sexy scenarios, erotic locations and of course great sex - it’s visually arousing, sensual and fun. The music is always an anti climax though please can someone sort out the music.
