The Future Of Porn Could Be Kinkier, Friendlier, And Way More Expensive

Thompson November 8, 2017 November 8th, 2017

If you were raised in an *ahem* “traditional” community like I was, you were conditioned to believe sex workers are all lazy hedonists who get paid tons of money simply for screwing on camera. So of course we all wanted to be porn stars when we grew up. But, contrary to what our parents and church leaders led us to assume, adult film acting is not a wondrous dream career 100 percent of the time.

Sure, sex is fun! Just like eating ice cream is fun! Now, imagine eating ice cream for eight hours straight, and you aren’t allowed to stop unless you want to get fired. Then imagine that these marathon ice cream eating sessions are basically what your life is for the foreseeable future. Making matters trickier, conventional porno movies aren’t the cash cows they used to be thanks to the proliferation of free streaming sites. Quoting The Free Speech Coalition, Rolling Stone reports about 3/4th of porn stars have taken it upon themselves to generate extra income.

Hence an uptick in a new trend: custom-designed, or “bespoke” pornos, where an individual viewer can order up any hyper-specific kink(s) they can imagine.

“The Internet’s done nothing but shoot holes in mainstream porn, not unlike what happened back in the day with Napster and the music industry,” producer Nick Sterling tells Rolling Stone. “Customs evolved because we had to start fulfilling a specific fantasy not available on those free tube sites.”

RS describes a 30-minute bespoke movie an enthusiastic Christina Carter fan paid her $5,300 to put together. This customer’s fantasy apparently includes burning matches between toes, a rooster impression, a toy baseball bat (not used for penetration), and a Wonder Woman costume.

“With customs like this, I might email over 100 times with the client about the specific script details beforehand — what color lipstick I’m wearing, what angles of my body are shot, what wardrobe, shoes and props are used,” Carter says to¬†RS.

Five grand seems like a lot of money to drop on a single half-hour porno video. However, compared to the expenses a person would rack up hiring actors, gathering props, and renting professional-level cameras and editing equipment for quality production value, five Gs looks like a hellufa bargain.

The next step, obviously, is bespoke VR porn, where for a price, our favorite models will prance around in X-Men outfits (circa 1987) on what appears to be The Moon, and screaming the word “Butterscotch!” in unison once every seven minutes and 13 seconds on the dot…..Or, y’know, whatever you’re into.
