The hits just keep on coming! This week I’ve got two articles to share with you, which were both fascinating to research. Hopefully they’ll be equally interesting to read!

Porn Through the Decades

First, I spoke to some of my greatest heroes to research an article for Men’s Health about changes in porn through the decades. I was able to interview the wonderful Annie Sprinkle, Nina Hartley, Jeanne Silver, John Stagliano, and Lainie Speiser about what’s changed from the early seventies until now. (Spoilers: A LOT.)

Here’s a bite:
“A common argument made by anti-porn activists is that porn has gotten way more hardcore and degrading over time. But while it’s true that most mainstream porn in the 1970s provided a fairly vanilla depiction of sex, people on the margins of the industry have always been making kinkier or more hardcore fare. These days, it might be easier to find hardcore porn online, but those who have been involved with porn since its early days say that all things considered, the industry isn’t any more or less extreme than it was in the 1970s.”

Colombian Webcamming

The last of my “Porn Around the World” series at MEL has been published. It’s a bittersweet farewell to my look at porn industries all over the globe, because it’s more about webcamming than porn—as is most of the Colombian adult entertainment industry.

Here’s a taste:
If anything, many adult Colombian models merely use porn to feed their camming careers. ‘They use porn to become famous, and then have many followers on their webcam platforms,’ explains [Cristian] Cipriani. Why camming? Because that’s where the real money is. ‘In Colombia, a good [webcam] model could make more money than a doctor, lawyer or someone that went to school for years,’ Xbiz reported late last year.
